For anyone that lives at an apartment, townhouse, HOA, condo or mobile home complex in Jefferson County, Texas, your chances of being a victim of a widespread mail fraud, racketeering and criminal conspiracy at the hands of K&K Towing, owned by Shawna Kreuzer, is as high as being bitten by a mosquito.
Based on notarized statements by previous employees of K&K Towing, Kreuzer instructed her employees to commit mail fraud by mailing the required Certified Letter, required for vehicles to be towed, with expired registration stickers, at their company’s expense for every property manager, that are under contract, to remove unauthorized vehicles. Kreuzer takes her criminal conspiracy a step farther, by providing many items of value to property managers, business owners and property owners, such as sign posts, orange warning stickers and even parking permits, without forgetting the parking addendum residents of apartment complexes are given to sign.
Kreuzer, who lives in Port Neches, has hired a “weasel” by the name of Shane Parker, to further her criminal conspiracy by soliciting new business in the Port Arthur, Groves, Nederland, Port Neches, Beaumont, Orange, Lumberton and Bridge City communities, in attempt to persuade prospective clients her business is legitimate, but does not provide Health or Worker Compensation Insurance to her employees as she claims. Property managers and business owners should avoid this company like the plague, as signing any contract to allow them to terrorize people will be costly, as State Law does not allow a prevailing party to collect attorney fees. Local law enforcement may tell a vehicle owner or operator private property towing is a civil issue, but State Law says otherwise.
Kreuzer is already banned from towing in Vidor, Texas, as the Mayor of Vidor stated under no circumstance is her company welcomed in their City due to problems they created elsewhere. Kreuzer already has problems on the horizon with the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulations, after one of their investigators, upon investigating several complaints, determined the tow signs provided to parking facilities are non-compliant. We already knew that at Texas Towing Compliance from the photos included in the Tow Victim Incident Reports filed by victim’s of Kreuzer’s criminal enterprise, K&K Towing.
There is absolutely no valid reason to justify the actions of Shawna Kreuzer, as she corrupts otherwise honest property managers and business owners, convincing them it’s okay to accept her company’s bribes. Her business model is in comparison to that of a meth lab across the street of a methadone clinic.
Property managers of apartment complexes that use K&K Towing best have deep pockets as there is no possible way you will prevail in Court after your residents and their guest file lawsuits against you. The City Councils of communities in Jefferson, Hardin and Orange counties would be wise to protect your residents by passing a “towing ordinance” to regulate the tow fee charged for a private property impound, no higher than $100 and require all vehicles towed with the vehicle owner or operator consent be stored within your city limits. As it is now, with no city regulated fee in place, these tow pirates charge the “STATE CAP” of $255 in addition to the $40 in storage related fees for first 24 hours, after 24 hours, the total to retrieve a vehicle is $385.00.
Kreuzer’s tow truck operators are knowingly towing vehicles for reasons prohibited by State Law and no lease of any kind is above the Law, under any circumstances. The towing of vehicles for being parked on the parking space line or over the line, backed into a parking space or for expired inspection/registration stickers without the property manager, not the tow company send you a Certified Letter allowing ten days prior to towing is strictly prohibited, as State Law requires “legal” tow signs, unlike K &K’s illegal tow sign, be posted by the parking facility, not the tow company and cannot give anything of value, directly or indirectly in connection with the removal of a vehicle.
The latest Small Claims Lawsuit filed due to illegal towing, which can also be filed by anyone victimized by K & K Towing or any tow company, to that matter and the address your vehicle has been towed/charged a drop/sold at their public auction within two years of the date of tow or drop fee, as shown below as an example:
ALWAYS CONFRONT WITH YOUR CELLPHONE VIDEO ON RECORD THEIR TOW TRUCK DRIVERS IN THE PROCESS OF LOADING A VEHICLE IN AN APARTMENT COMPLEX PARKING LOT OR BEFORE DRIVING OFF THE PROPERTY AND STATE “DO NOT TOW MY VEHICLE”, AS THEIR TOW TRUCK DRIVERS ARE ENGAGING IN DROP FEE SCAMS ON A DAILY BASIS WHICH IS THE SAME AS ROBBERY.
EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN TOWED BY THIS COMPANY IS URGED TO FILE THE TDLR COMPLAINTS, AS DO NOTHING ALLOWS THIS COMPANY TO REMAIN IN BUSINESS AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT SHAWNA KREUZER, THE OWNER OF K & K WANTS.
Since neither Ernest or Shawna Kreuzer refuse to talk with those their tow company has taken advantage of financially at their office, drop by their house in Port Neches at 721 Riffle Avenue, while spending a low budget weekend at Port Neches Park with your family, since they robbed you of your money.
