The Modern Day DBA Casualty

WARNING to DBA claimants/ injured civilian contractors in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and Alabama:

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on November 9, 2010

AIG (via the taxpayer) is paying this firm to spy on you for days on end, and what’s worse is they guarantee “well over a 90% video success rate on all files … Unheard of in the industry.”
In other words over 90% of us are lying about our injuries, or they either grossly exaggerate and/or photoshop and manipulate the video surveillance which is a far more likely scenario.

Alliance Investigations,
P. O. Box 1451, Bainbridge, Georgia 39818
Telephone – (229) 400-0841 Fax – (229) 246-7229 Contact: Darrell D. Cox (President)
It’s surely just a matter of time before someone gets hurt in the ongoing despicable practice of stalking and filming DBA claimants, many of whom suffer from PTSD, TBI and other war-related trauma known to significantly reduce impulse control. The fact that two insurance whores now team up to spy on claimants at any given time is just making matters worse.
The latest culprits making their living by spying on injured contractors for AIG are S.R. Stone and M.A. Wheatley presumably of Bainbridge, GA. If anyone can dig up mug shots please send to us asap.
Case No.: 2009-LDA-00055
S.R. Stone testified that he is a private investigator for Alliance Investigations performed video surveillance of the Claimant from 4:37 PM, September 24, 2008 through September 27, 2008.
He identified EX 23 as an accurate report of his activities during his surveillance of the Claimant as well as containing the previous surveillance attributable to his associate Mr. Weatley. Mr. Stone testified that he was working another case when he was called on September 24, 2008, and assigned to assist Mr. Wheatley in the surveillance of the Claimant.
On re-cross examination, Mr. Stone testified that at some points in time he was five to ten feet away from the Claimant while the Claimant operated the motorcycle and sometimes he used the zoom-lens on the camera.
Testimony of M.A. Wheatley (TR 35-46)
Mr. M.A. Wheatley testified that he is a self-employed licensed private investigator and has been an investigator since May 1995. He is licensed in Georgia, South Carolina and Florida. He reported that he conducted surveillance of the Claimant for a day and a half on September 23 and 24, 2008.
He stated that the portion of EX 23 from 2:07 to 5:14 PM, September 24, 2008,
reflected the observation he and Mr. Stone made since they were both observing the same
activity together at that time.
NOTE to the computer-savy among us, the software they use is Trackops.

    Scumbags; is there no law against stalking and filming people without their knowledge and consent?

    What about all the other people we happen to interact with who end up on tape in a court file without ever knowing about it?
    It’s not just about having a bad hair day, but a reasonable expectation to move about without looking over your shoulder with Big Brother legally watching you in a supposedly free country.
    They typically record your front door for up to three or more days.
    This is a major invasion of privacy, not only condoned but encouraged by many DOL judges.

    At least one GERALD M. ETCHINGHAM, Administrative Law Judge, turned the tables against these spying SCUMBAGS in an amazing recent ruling for many reasons (2010-LDA-00047) by using the surveillance footage to confirm that the civilian contractor did indeed suffer from PTSD. Way to go!

    Hello,

    A recent post about a “turkey shoot” where one of these a-holes got a little bird-shot in his backside made me laugh out loud!

    Here in Texas, we have a castle law. These guys ARE trying to do us harm. I won’t use bird-shot, and they won’t be getting back up if they trespass on my property! I would LOVE to have one of these “things” hop my fence which is clearly marked “NO TRESPASSING” to get surveillance of me…I could use the target practice since it is deer season 😉
