Beware of scam artist JOSE LUIS GALVAN Los Angeles tow truck driver

by A VICTIM OF THIS MAN 12/08-current Tuesday, Mar. 24, 2009 at 5:29 PM
kenia.maristar@gmail.com LA

My car needed a tow, i called aaa which i have a membership with. They sent a company called Hollywood Independent Towing to tow my car Jose Luis Galvan was the driver. He is a scam artist/ compulsive liar and acts as if he is the sweetest, most helpful/caring man in the world. He convinced me/tricked me into believing he can help me get a newer 2008 suv (repoed) from a federal auction lot and asked me to put a third down as a down payment. After you make the deal with him, he gives you a receipt and disappears. Luckily the receipt has his home address and name. I am aware of another person who was scammed in a different way and an employee of Hollywood Independent Towing admit to me while searching for him that he has scammed other towing customers as well. Please read more.

Beware of scam artis...
picture_7.png, image/png, 676x588

Jose Luis Galvan is a liar, cheater, states he owns Hollywood Independent Towing a towing company who is contracted by AAA. He Claims to either be the owner of the company or a supervisor. If you are a woman he is act really sweet to you and feed you lies. He states he can fix your vehicle, try to convince you to take it to his shop instead of the one you plan on taking it to and acts like you can make a payment plan with him because he is trying to help you out. This man does not have a shop, he has a business license under the business name (Speed j Towing also JLG Motorsports which are his initials ) and the address he has for his *business* is his home address. 4760 Toland Way La CA 90042. Watch out for this man.
He claims its a machine shop. This is all a lie. I found this out after doing my investigation and taking him to small claims court. I am currently fighting him for my money back, he is a liar, really good liar- Please do not trust him. Contact me to see if i can help you and you can help me. His picture is attached to this post

by So disappointed! Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016 at 12:35 PM

Jose I considered to be a friend for many years. I thought he was an honest man. Until I started hearing different stories and catching him in lies. That's what he made me believe. Was he really a marine for 26 years or was that a lie too? He lied about his wife cheating with her boss and he raising 3 children by himself. Finding out he was married... When he said he wasn't! Had 8 children and possibly never been a marine. I too helped him with a problem he said he had with his daughter by lending him $2000. Now I come to realize that his life was full of lies. He hurt many people. I just hope his children are okay because having a parent like that as an example must be the toughest thing! Hope he is in a better place. Wish he could've got help here while he was alive.
Did he really have terminal cancer or was that a lie too?

by Jaysanchez1766 Friday, Aug. 25, 2017 at 12:31 AM

I am a friend of Jose's youngest step son. Jose was horrible for what he did, but he should have stopped rather than do what he did. He called his family a couple nights before saying he was leaving for business. Told them he loves them and said goodbye. Two days later my friend comes home from school to find paramedics and police outside his house then seeing hid father Jose hanging in the garage. He left family behind and they were so hurt. They found his phone with messages from people saying he owes them money. The Grandfather heard the dog crying and laying next to the garage. He opened the garage only to see him hanging, at first he thought he was playing around and went and tried to wake him up saying it isn't funny. Few moments later he realized he was dead. Hung himself with orange box wire. Jose was confirmed dead by officials and said to have been dead for over 24 hours. Jose may have done horrible things, but still he loved his family and left them behind last November of 2016. His funeral was held in January if I am correct. I attended his funeral and burial. I am sorry for all who he scammed. He should never have done that but no more saying he deserved it. Let's please just leave it as is

Jose leaves behind his loving wife Rosa, sons Joe, Earnest, Gaspar, Noah Alvarado, daughters Sofia, Nathaly, Sammantha and Naomi Galvan. He will be forever loved and missed by all whose lives he touched.

He will definitely not be missed. He was a scam artist who used his kids social security numbers to take out loans and get credit cards.He put his oldest son Jose Jr in 30,000 dollars of debt.His younger children will benefit from not having to deal with him.
