PUNK, Adam Tyler "Ty" Claiborne steals $200.00 from customer because he could not READ or WRITE.

Several months ago, while working for the DirecTV dealer, Capitol Theatre LLC otherwise known as Capitol Media, I had an install to do in Cocke County, Tn. Ty Claiborne called me as I was driving to the customer's home. Ty told me that the man had called him as a referral from a previous customer of his. He told me that I needed to pick up $200.00 from the customer as he did not pass the credit check.
When a customer wants to get DirecTV service, they are required to give their social security number to the sales rep for a credit check. If the customer passes the credit check, they do not have to pay any money up front to get DirecTV. If the customer does not pass or don't want to give out their social, they are required to pay a minimum fee of $200.00. It could be more depending on type of receivers and/or how many.
I went to the customer's home and installed the job. While finishing up the job, Ty called the customer's home phone as I did not have cell service in that area. He asked the customer if he could speak with me. Ty asked me if I had collected the $200.00 from the customer. I asked the customer, while still on the phone with Ty, if he was told by Ty about the fee. The customer said yes, and pulled the $200.00 (2 one hundred dollar bills) from his pocket and gave it to me. After hanging up the phone and finishing the paperwork, the customer asked me for a receipt for his money paid. I wrote on his contract that I collected $200.00 from the customer.
After leaving the customer's home and and nearly reaching my home, Ty called me and asked again if I had collected the $200.00 from the customer. I said yes. Ty then started laughing and said that the guy had passed the credit check and did not have to pay the fee. Ty said that the customer could not READ or WRITE and would never know. I was speechless. When I got off the phone from Ty, I immediately called my wife and told her of what this PUNK had done. I told her that I was going to have to quit working for Ty's business and that we needed to plan for me to quit in the next couuple of weeks.
The next day I went to Tazewell, Tn to do more jobs. While Ty was in the middle of committing Identity Theft with another consumer, I gave Ty the cash collected and some checks of shipping and handling fees collected from a couple of previous customers. During this 2 week period before finally quitting them, I saw more crimes committed. It was the worst 2 weeks of the whole 9 months.
I did not have proof of whether the customer above had passed the credit check or not. The paperwork I had did not state it. After the 2 weeks of working, I pulled up the customer in the DirecTV system and saw that the customer had passed the credit check. I called the customer and told him what the salesman had done. The customer has since filed a police report with the Cocke County Sheriff's Department with me as a witness. There is also a police report filed against Ty with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. This is by a different consumer, also for theft of $100.00. So far, neither of these Department's have taken action.

Hey "Fat Boy" Ty Claiborne ! This message is directly to you ! Maybe it's time to pack up and move to another part of the country once again. This suggestion should not bother you, because lets face it, isn't this what you frequently do and what you are known for !!! Quiet honestly, I find it to be extremely disturbing that you can stand to look at yourself each day when you know exactly what you are doing is misleading, deceptive, deceitful, dishonest, and illegal ! It's bet sad that you would do this in the area that you grew up in. But hey, Thank You, this just shows everyone that you grew up with and everyone else around here the true dishonest and lousy person you really are ! You're a real piece of work, I bet your parents are very proud !
