Tony the Gypsy Dent Repair Removal Scammer / Dent Repair Removal Parking Lot Scammer
Car body repair scam for paintless dent removal. Scammer finds you in a parking lot, offering to remove minor dents from your car, claims they do this on the side for extra money besides their normal job doing it for a company during the day, will do for you for 1/4 the shop price. They end up doing a lousy job and making your car worse with their inadequate tools and skills. There was no written contract or paperwork.
They start out saying you pay nothing if you are not satisfied. Then when done, you express your dissatisfaction and they try to claim YOU were the one scamming them by not wanting to pay the full amount they proposed IF you were satisfied. They make you feel guilty for not paying and try to intimidate you. They threaten to call a tow truck to seize your car and put a mechanic's lien on it. When you get your car home later and wipe off the paste, you see they caused more damage and didn’t fix the problem.
The Hispanic male about 25 doing the work said his name was “Tony” with close cut hair. He called me on his phone "[protected]" while he was there and said I could call him later if he needed it fixed more. However, it was all a ruse, because he knew his work was terrible and had no intention of ever doing more. That’s why he uses the white paste to hide the damage he caused and says it must be left on overnight. By the time you remove it later, you discover the scam and he is long gone. His wife was about 25 also and the 50 year old hag fat mother of one of them had her boobs almost spilling out of her top. The women both had dirty blonde or light brown hair.
They were driving a fancy expensive-looking black 2-door sports car in the Fry’s parking lot Monday night 5-3-10 about 830PM at the Fry's Electronics, 11565 S.W. Hwy 59 South, Houston, TX
