Too bad they decided to rip off their customers. Now they're going to pay the price for their greed.

I wonder if the former owner of Forest Lake Ford was involved in this one too, he is such an outstanding citizen, but seems to slip through the cracks when it comes to punishment for his crimes. I wonder if his friendship with a certain city attorney has anything to do with that

A former employee of that place told me about it being a bit crooked. She said all they did their was answer phone calls from people that complained about receiving bills they did not authorize.

Give her 1 day in jail for every person she billed incorrectly.

Just another example of the human carnage that has been so pervasive since Ronald Regan was crowned king of America. Workers are promised the moon if they hire on, yet not at any given moment they can't be sure that their new found company is playing by the rules.(Supreme court ruling- unregulated tactics- so now that Corporations have the same vocal rights as humans they can do whatever they want). Alternative Billing being the case in point. They appear to be trustworthy, but take advantage of the very lax standards applied to corporations these days.
Thus we have innocent workers, trying to do an honest days work (hundreds no doubt around the country) trapped in whatever crappy scheme upper management delivered. The result? Bad management takes down every worker bee below them. Thank God for the investigative branch of government.

anything illegal that happened there was done by one person, and that was the owner. I know I worked there at one time, and less then a week into my employment I approached JB and brought up several different things I had noticed that were not Kosher. I was threatened and was told my services were no longer needed,I will say this, I was in the auto sales business for many years and overall the employees there were probably the best I ever worked with even though it was only a short time.

Interesting that the CRIMINAL owner of this place has been an active liberal democrat in the Forest Lake area for quite some time. Your comments about Reagan are absurd, try looking at the so called king now.

Why do these discussions always have to end up about partisan politics. Can't we all just get along?
