Alpine Auto Recovery Towing LLC, Donald ‘Don’ Heald, Jr., Don Heald, Don Heald Jr., Matt Cooper, [email protected][dot]com, Felicity Stalling & failure to provide requested insurance information, Victimization AND Extortion, submission of fake photos/INSURANCE FRAUD Denver Colorado!!. SUMMARY: This driver failed to follow protocol and illegally towed vehicle. Unskilled Matt Cooper/Driver of Denver (Truckers and Artisans Casualty Co. is insurer Policy # CA08390706 for anyone running into the same problem we did i. e. company and driver failed to submit insurance co. information and blamed each other for responsibility). After over a month of stalling, Alpine Auto Recovery LLC submitted altered photos claiming no damage to vehicle. Insurance companies have been provided evidence and will pursue subrogation and fraud investigation. This is the attorney letter we sent them, so far unanswered. The Woodhaven Apts and Townhomes management are defending the actions of this towing company (they are old friends) thus giving Colorado PUC the excuse of not following up on claim of illegal operation.
