This wretched company has ripped off many, many people. Unfortunately I had to find out the hard way how awful they were.

It is said that our world is a dangerous place, not because of evil, but because of all those who don't do anything about it. Apathy runs rampant in todays society with people of all ages, especially younger people taking this attitude that those who complain about being ripped off are crybabies. No, those with that attitude are VERY SELFISH people.

One of the biggest reasons we need to complain is so others don't get ripped off by the same company like I did. I had to pay $230 to be towed 7 miles, with the arrogant driver laughing in my face. But from what I'm reading and hearing, I got off easy compared to many others. See link below.

I almost used this company. But my insurance agent told me to stay away. They have a BBB rating of F! They've ripped off a ton of people.

I glad a thread has been started against them on a public forum. They don't care who they rip off. But it's often older and handicapped people, who would be less likely to smash their drivers in the face as they would so richly deserve.

I think this POS company is the reason we don't hear about Lincoln Towing much anymore.

Over the phone I was quoted $65. When I got to my destination, driver made it $265 cash only! I had to use an ATM machine. When I went to pay him he raised it AGAIN to $465! Lucky I wasn't carrying a gun, because I would have blown his head off. How do companies like this stay in business?

Chicago is so corrupt, companies like this can fly under the radar. Better off borrowing from a loan shark.

Almost every insurance company knows about them. They have thousands of victims.

It's people like this who always wind up as a Chicago Mayor or Governor of Illinois.

This company is getting away with felony after felony and remains above the law. If most of his victims were Millennials I think they would have nailed him for sure. But since it's one of their fellow liberals committing the crimes they get a free pass, just like Obama, Hillary and Madonna....etc.

This terrible company has burned several of my neighbors. I Googled in "Chicagoland's Most Crooked Company" and Jonny's Towing came up #2 on the First Page. Not bad, but let's support this thread with more posts until it becomes #1. There really is no company, not even in Corrupt Chicago that is more crooked.
Payback

Yeah, these mo-fo's rooked me once a while back. Now I thought of a great way to pay them back, though I'm sure others have thought of this too. We should send their drivers on a wild goose chase at least several times a day. Let's call them from different cell phone outlets or other public places so they won't know who we are and then keep giving them bogus addresses. That will drive them totally nuts! lol

Driver quoted me $65 when he picked me up but tried to change it to $265 later. I shoved him real hard into his truck and said I was going to break him in half. So he said, "Okay okay...$65."

I wish it was legal to ground and pound people like that. But unfortunately in a blue state like Illinois, it will never happen. Just the same if anybody ever tries to burn me like that, it will be worth going to jail to punch their lights out.

I'd probably do the same thing. Maybe just for the fun of it, I'll give them a call and say I need a tow. Tell them I'm parked in an alley and have them come late at night. That way driver won't even recognize me when I do some "Singing in the Rain" on him Clockwork Orange Style. lol

LOL I also know a few abandoned warehouses I could lead them to.

I called this company last year for a tow. But they were so rude over the phone, I hung up. From what I'm reading here it's a good thing I did.

This company are bigger criminals than Bernie Madoff. Bernie conned naive people. This company robs people. You don't pay their exorbitant price, they take your car away from you. They belong in prison.

If the authorities don't put these crooks out of business, it will only be a matter of time before somebody comes up with a permanent solution. Those who play with fire get burned.
