Gino Miller, 21, was arrested and charged with extorting more than $13,000 from a 63-year-old Parma resident with disabilities.

Parma police said several victims reported a man matching Miller’s description approached them in the parking lots of Marc’s stores and claimed they hit his car. Miller told the victims he worked at an auto body shop and could make the repairs on site, according to police.

“Miller then works on the vehicle, usually without permission, and removes the scratches while then demanding money by intimidating the victim. In some cases, Miller followed the victims to the bank or to their house to get the money,” police said.

Anyone who has had a similar encounter and would like to make a police report, please contact Det. Joe Duganier at 440-887-7337.

Apple says it actually loses money every year on its repair programs .
Even though Apple's share of the smartphone market isn't anywhere close to a level that would warrant calling the company a monopoly power, lawmakers have recently become taken with the idea of investigating large tech companies for alleged antitrust behavior. In turn, Congress a few months back sent a letter to Apple seeking answers to a wide range of questions pertaining to how Apple conducts is business. As you might expect, some of the questions sent to Apple demonstrate a clear lack of understanding of Apple’s business and the tech space in general.
