KMOV (Channel 4) is out with photos of the ginormous home, mansion, estate, castle that Darain Atkinson -- co-founder of Wentzville-base U.S. Fidelis -- is building in Lake Saint Louis.

U.S. Fidelis sells extended auto warranties. The Better Business Bureau reports that in the past 36 months it has received more than 33,000 inquiries and more than 1,100 complaints and reports expressing dissatisfaction with the company or its services.

According to the BBB, U.S. Fidelis describes itself as a "faith-based company" with a "commitment to treating every customer with honesty and integrity."  Its logo, topped by a shining halo, appears on everything from national TV commercials to the NASCAR racing circuit.
