National Garage Door Company Preying On Senior Citizens Operates In The Austin Market
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CEDAR PARK, TX: If you run into a local garage door company presenting themselves under these names, beware: Overhead Garage Door Repair, Garage Door Services, Neighborhood Garage Door Services, and even Cedar Parks Choice Overhead Doors.
This is a NATIONAL company that advertises and misleads people in the Austin and surrounding areas. The company is actually “GDS”, “Global Distribution Services”.
For anactual list you can see the many names on the San Diego BBB Web Site. Go to the bottom and see the many aliases used by this organization. See this link: GDS in SanDiego. They are also in Dallas. See this link: GDS in Dallas. You might also consider looking in North Carolina. See This Link: GDS of NC. How about Washington state? See this link.
According to the article by To m Wadsorth CDDC in DASMA, (http://www.dasma.com/articles/feature/GDS_Felonies_Spring2017.pdf) a leading garage door technician for Garage Door Services (GDS) in San Diego has nine counts of felony residential burglary and nine counts of theft. Note: This Legal Proceeding has completed and the defendant has
Pled Guilty to many of the charges. This same technician has received numerous awards from this company including “Leader of the Year”. See the article here.
The lead prosecutor in the case, Paul Greenwood, is the head of Elder Abuse Protection Unit of the San Diego District Attorney’s Office because eight out of the nine testifying customers were senior citizens.
This is the same company (Cedar Parks Choice Overhead Doors) that has advertised in such a way for the last few years that many local customers believe it is our company that they are calling. This company is a national “system” that operates in many states. They all look “local” but are misleading.
To protect yourself, do this: If they ask for money or a Credit card for an estimate—Hang Up! That’s not the Real Cedar Park Overhead Doors. Call us at 512-335-7441 or go to cpdoors.com.
