I believe James Whittles (who goes by Jim Whittles) and Maryl A. Kadden were both involved with 2 companies with different names but the same lines of business.
The first company established was:
800 PLG URS N AUDIO VIDEO
26895 ALISO CREEK ROAD
ALISO VIEJO, CA 92656
Business Phone Number:(800) 754-8776
California State Contractor License 592179
The second was:
MERYL THE INSTALLER INC
31734 WATERFALL WAY
MURRIETA, CA 92563
Business Phone Number:(951) 296-9441
California State Contractor License 777930
It appears that the second business had problems in 2008 and ceased doing business under that name and license. So, they went back to doing business under the first company and license.
As of this writing, both state licenses have expired, and according to the California State Licensing Board, the 800 PLG URS N Audio Video (the first license) has a civil judgement against it that must be paid before it can be reactivated.
Do you really want to do business with someone who has multiple licenses that have been suspended and has judgments against them?
I am not the only person who feels ripped off by Jim Whittle and Meryl Kadden. Read about what they did to a customers Irvine Home after they were hired to install audio and video equipment.
