Above the Rest Fences and Decks
Job Left Imcomplete and Dangerous for Occupants, Late, Rude, no Business Skills, no follow thru
21st of May, 2012 by Hank S
I hired this company several years ago to do some simple work on a deck. The work took a while longer than they originally estimated, but I figured that would be the case. I was told "one day job" and it stretched into four or five days. I was quoted a price that was lower than a few other bids I received form local companies. Truth be told, this is why I selected the company, but the decking repair I needed was straight forward and about as uncomplicated a job as one could sign up for. Less money sounded like the wise choice and the owner, Matthew Olyphant along with another guy whose name I do not recall seemed like ok guys.

Upon completion of the job, I received a bill that I didn't expect. It was nearly twice the cost of the original bid. The owner presented it to me while I was hosting a late lunch and had a house full of guests. I paid him and mentioned I would be in contact. I was not happy with his business style. With a house full of guests, I felt it was better to handle the issue the following day. I told Mr. Olyphant I would be in touch to discuss a few items.

The next day he could not be found. This continued for months. Less than a week after the job was completed, I realized that it had not been done correctly and was in fact falling apart. The job needed to be repaired and the deck was left in a dangerous state. I tried to reach the owner for months. When we eventually spoke, he assured me he would fix the deck promptly, but he never showed. Eventually, I filed a lawsuit. This got their attention. Within two days of serving them with legal papers I was refunded some of the money. I rejected their offer to fix the poorly done work and went with another company. Matt Olyphant came to my house and offered to make the repairs free of charge. Free!!! I already paid for the work and he had demonstrated he could not get the small job done. You know the saying fool me once.....

While helping my son look for a contractor to work on his Napa home, we came across a report for this Mr. Olyphant's company Above the Rest Fences and Decks and it brought back the bad memories of that job. I thought I should file this to save others from the headache and run around I dealt with.

Diana Prause, Dell Computers, Austin, Texas 43 years old.
Diana Jo Prause Cyberstalks Harasses, and Slanders via the Internet.

Diana Jo Prause who is employed by Dell Computer Corp., Austin, Texas has spent months relentlessly stalking, harassing, and slandering several individuals via the Internet. She has a hosts of email and Twitter accounts she uses along with numerous negative web presence forums to fabricate complete lies about Matthew Olyphant and others because she once dated Matthew Olyphant.
She has stalked numerous other people for similarly petty reasons or imagined beliefs about her self importance and presence in their lives. Her attacks are intent on causing irreparable damage to an individual's reputation both on and offline. Much of this constant stalking and annoying harassment and slander is done during her work hours at Dell Corp. The behavior she has exhibited is beyond jealousy or what many may consider permissible of a woman scorned, it is absolutely psychopathic and pathological.

Her employer and the public are to be alerted since she has broken several laws during the course of her ongoing campaign. Apart from stalking and harassing me with hundreds of emails from numerous accounts, she has also impersonated me and my email accounts, threatened me with physical harm, and hacked into my email and Facebook accounts. The list of offences is ridiculously long and bizarre--it's quite the accomplishment she has made on Dell's watch when she undoubtedly had genuine tasks at hand.

Diana Jo Prause is 43. Never married and live several states away in Cedar Park Texas. Investigators revealed she is my cyberstalker. That fact makes her behavior quite frightening as she had to indeed go to great lengths to accomplish her sick and twisted attacks, many of which were sexual in nature and deviant based.

Diana Jo Prause is sick and her dark hidden lifestyle proves this. If you break things off with her, she will not let go and any women you subsequently meet may become her target. This is a general warning to any individual that Diana Jo Prause suffering from a plethora of likely undiagnosed mental illnesses. There is nothing remotely normal about her personal life and behavior.
She will stop at nothing to stalk her prey on a daily basis in any and all ways available.
She works online stalking seemingly on a full-time basis and she will employ the same destructible energy against others as you will see the amount of posts she makes in this site about Matthew Olyphant many impersonating other people.
Diana Jo Prause needs professional help!
Beware and be warned that Diana Jo Prause is mentally off kilter and morally bankrupt.
Her delight in behaving as the ugliest human being is proof. Whether or not she has additional demons is unknown but she is a very heavy drinker. She is driven to cause harm people.

This report, as well as others, regarding Matthew Olyphant is bogus. Matthew is the target of a disgruntle ex-girlfriend who was caught cheating by Matthew. The interesting thing about this ex-girlfriend is she carries this grudge for over a year. Her goal is to totally destroy Matthew by posting these slanderous reports. As you can see, the report is anonymous, as are the others. However, some of the posted reports on the internet sometimes have a name attached as an author, but those names are false.

This ex-girlfriend lives in Texas and Matthew lives in California and their relationship lasted only a few months due to distance. Every single accusation this ex-girlfriend has posted is false. Legal actions against the ex-girlfriend are ongoing.

I am a licensed private investigator in California, hired by Matthew, to assist in halting these false and malicious reports.

Your story reeks of BS. Anyone in the area can go around the neighbourhood and ask about Matthew and Above the Rest and they will hear about their high quality work and professional attitude to the job they do.

You received a written quote from Matthew and Above the Rest Fences and Decks, yet it so turns out that you got a doubled bill and you paid it? What kind of an idiot are you? You got black on white proof of the original quote! Which means you made up this BS. You are not very smart in your made up stories, try to write something which makes a bit more sense before posting it.
No one does business shoving a bill into someone's hands while they are having a lunch party. And no business owner personally brings the bill to someone on a special occassion. I think you're watching too many horror movies, maybe consider watching some Twilight for a change?

Wait a second, he could not be found? Yet, he has a physical address and a phone number? What happened, did they vanish into thin air while you were so desperately trying to get to him? You're such an idiot for writing this.

What on earth?? You don't have any copy of the lawsuite paperwork??

He actually was so nice to offer you money back and repair the work for free, yet you go and spit on him like a dog?

Go and find some help, you really need a good psychologist.

Diana, kudos to you for writing this amazingly entertaining story, I especially like the part where he vanishes for months, real sci-fi stuff, awesome.

Now, I had a few ideas for your next story. How about a version where Matthew turns up at your home and it was snowing? So he got in the mood to ski and he grabbed two pieces from your deck and make skis out of them and ski around your garden? Then he used your deck as a ramp.

Another scenario could be that it was Summer time and he loves to hula dance, so he came to your house and while you were discussing the deck, he stripped off to his hula skirt and started dancing? Then you decided, hey, that looks like fun! So you also started hula dancing? His partner came in and she also joined in, but because the deck was a bit small you bumped into each other. Then a fight broke out about who was bumping into who.

Then Matthew brutally bit into one of the deck pieces and you got upset, so you told him the hula party is now over.

I know Diana J. Prause from Texas and I can confirm that all the reports you will find on the Internet was made by her. She told me that she hated Matthew Olyphant because he broke up the relationship and she is going to take revenge on him regardless of what it takes.
She told me he was one of the best things which happened to her, he was the kindest most thoughtful guy she ever knew and the loss of him from her life is driving her insane.
I can not reveal my identity, because I fear for my good name to be damaged as well, should she discover who I am.
I decided I have to speak out, because what is happening is going too far, I would not want this to happen to me. Any thing you read regarding Matthew's art, his company and his character is all Diana's doing, none of what is reported on the Internet is actually true.
I hope she will come to her senses, but I would not count on it, she is really in an awful state.
I don't know Matthew personally but from what Diana told me he is a very good guy.
