Additional Complaint Information

Most of the complaints now closed and reported concerning Heritage Administration Services were originally opened and pursued with Dimension Services. The company submitted information to BBB indicating the two were separate businesses and requested that BBB process and report the complaints accordingly. Some information submitted by customers and the company regarding complaints continue to include references to two or more of the businesses affiliated with Haytham Elzayn in our BBB files. On Dec. 4, 2008, Peter Knolla provided BBB the following information regarding what he described as Allegiance Holdings LLC's affiliated companies: Heritage Administration Services, Inc. (HAS) is a service contract administrator that is currently responsible for the majority of complaints being fielded by (BBB) offices due to financial difficulties created by its former owners. HAS is also the majority owner of a risk retention group named Heritage Warranty Insurance RRG, Inc. (HRRG) that provides insurance for HAS's service contract obligations. The HAS and HRRG operations were formerly located in Lincoln, Nebraska and when they were relocated to Ohio different Allegiance company staffs were assigned to conduct their service contract administration duties identified below. Dimension Service Corporation (DSC) is a service contract administrator but performs no service contract administration for HAS or HRRG and is a separate and distinct corporation from those entities. DSC has various insurers other than HRRG providing insurance for its service contract programs. National Administrative Services Corp (NASC) is a service contract administrator and although it's a separate and distinct corporation from HAS and HRRG, NASC does contractually perform some service contract administration for HAS and HRRG along with several other Allegiance entities. And Mr. Knolla provided the further descriptions of the terms obligor names, program names, and insurer's names: OBLIGOR'S NAMES: A service contract is a set of promises (subject to a service contract's terms and conditions) between a consumer and a contract obligor; the party required to perform the service contract's promises. In most instances, the service contract's obligor are one of the below listed service contract administrators. PROGRAM NAMES: Service contracts are sold to consumers through various means such as car dealers, mail solicitations and over the inter net. Different service contract programs are created to meet consumer preferences. As a result, a consumer might only mention the name of the program in their inquiry without identifying the correct obligor. INSURER'S NAMES: Most state laws require the promises made by an obligor of a service contract to be insured and the insurer's identity must be disclosed in the service contract. As a result, a consumer might incorrectly only identify the name of the insurer in their inquiry without disclosing the obligor's correct name.
