They advertise as

I hired them to reposess my 2007 Mercedes.  They agreed to $350.00.  The repossession lasted about a month or more. I gave them all the addresses of where I think the car was. They fed off of that information, and eventually found the car. I repeatedly asked DON HALL the one in charge of the repossession is there any other charges, as I do not want any sticker shock. He said 'no no, absolutely not, we are currently looking for 75 cars and its not just yours, etc.....the cost is $350.00 for 2WD, and $450 for 4WD vehicles.  I even told him I would bonus him for his dilligent efforts. 

His mother company ICU, Inc. then sends me an invoice that read like this..

$350.00 Repossession cost (Great)

$300.00 Transporation (How gracious they can be in such a great deal)

$90.00 Lock out fee (undertandable - time spent inspecting the car for drugs, etc.)

$125.00 Spare Key fee (I offered to fedex the spare, nevertheless, not bad..I could use another set)

Then this is where my heart stopped!

$31,250.00 Skip Tracing.....  I dont even know what the hell that is.

Total owed or you wont get the car back they said "$32,115.00" - So my car is not held hostage as they are trying to extort this $ before release.

We are in the midst of contacting the Attorney General and State officials, as well as drafted a 15 page complaint with timestamps. I also have recorded conversation pertaining to costs. This one will not escape us. 

I KNEW I was not alone, so I started researching online. I found several other victims. I am not sure why no one has pursued this, However I have a law firm dedicated to filing a class action suit. I am filing a FEDERAL SUIT this week againts them. Please contact me if you would like to add to the class action  against DON HALL as well as ICU, Inc..  They are scamming the American public and getting away with it. It ends here!!  My email is mailto: (((REDACTED)))@yahoo.  Feel free to contact me with your info and I am willing to take on attorney expenses in the interim to help you gain damages as well.  SO far we have 3 that came forward.. Please come forward now!

Feeling your pain in Griffin GA

AUTHOR: Robin - (U.S.A.)

I too am a victim of these insane people.  I work for Affairs to Remember & Rebcole, a truck leasing company in Griffin, Georgia.  We had a truck that needed to be repoed in North Carolina. One of our regular repo guys said he knew a guy named Adam who could set up the repo for us.  He called back and said the repo would be around $500.  I received a "hold harmless & authorization to pick-up" from Speedy Repo.  I signed it, thinking it was just what was on the title of the form.  After getting my bill from ICU for $2875 I found that I had signed an agreement for them to charge "skip tracing" fees.  I too couldn't talk to ANYONE who could help me.  I was hollered at, hung up on..... and was never allowed to talk to "Adam", who originally set up the deal.  So now our truck is being held "hostage" until we pay the fee.  They were nice enough to reduce it down to $2500........ Thanks a lot.  If you are getting up a class action suit I would LOVE to join in on that.  I agree that this company has to be stopped.  I don't see how people can work for a company that treats people that way.  Good luck on your endeavors.

The ICU idiot who posted the rebuttal is absolutely 100% a liar. I did not take any large deposit nor am not in the business of subleasing cars.  

This will be handled in Federal Court very soon. I will post a link to the scanned suit. 

Research other threads of the same scam by ICU on this thread by searching icu inc here on rip off report. I guess they are all scammers and sublease idiots too?

DON HALL, d**k (I MEAN RICK) GREEN, AND OTHERS ASSOCIATED WITH ICU will obviously defend themselves from such their absurd act. Icu are economic terrorists taking advantage of vulnerable victims who seek to repossess their assets. BEWARE AND BE AWARE AND MONITOR HOW I TAKE THIS COMPANY DOWN. 

No more talk........just watch.

Here is the truth Ryan Sublease scammer ICU is Great

AUTHOR: Mark Harris - (United States of America)

This is not the case.   Ryan Shankar the individual that wrote this bogus report actually illigally subleased his car to some thugs in Los Angeles that he met on the net. He then took a large cash deposit from these brokers. He then decided to have the car taken back even though the Brokers had beed paying him $3200 a month for several months. Ryan stole $24,000 from Kevin in LA. There are also other vehicles that he currently illegally subleases to and thru other drug dealers and pimps.

Then Ryan hired ICU to get his car back.  He provided false information and interfered with the investigation the whole time even after lying to the Police to obtain  a stolen report.

ICU with no help from the police was able to recover this stolen and otherwise unrecoverable asset.  The contract clealy states the there is a contingent fee for skiptracing the fees in this case were 25% based on the difficulty, time andexpenses actually incurred for recovery.  There is no charge if asset is not recovered.  It is standard that with collection companies chage 33% to 50% of monies collected for customers.  This is no different, 25% is a bargin in the collection business. After all Ryan did not even know what state his car was in or who had it when it was recovered.

This guy should get the STUPID AWARD for giving his cars to strangers and taking large sums of CASH without permission from the finance companies that actually own the cars.

Ryan should be charged with a crime for taking the asset of a finance company and without their knowledge selling it and hiring companies to take it back so he can sell it again taking $20,000 deposits each time he finds another victim. He is the criminal. Then on top of it he refuses to pay for the services he contracted.

ICU should recieve a reward for recovering this asset and for getting it away from the theif Ryan Shankar.

By the way thru the entire process the contingent fees were disclosed and Ryan was aware that this was not a $350 repo job additionally all fees and charges are eplained on ICU website.  I assume this guy should know how to use a computer andnavigate a website. Additionally the above person singed an aknowlegemnet indicating that he understood the charges before ICU would accept the case FYI 


Best Regards
