  • Dent and paint repair scam


    I was stopped by a man in a truck at a grocery store parking lot, when he saw the debt in my car. He asked what happened and told me he works at the auto repair by the store but was trying to earn money on the side doing repairs. He said he could pop the denture out and fix the paint. He seemed very knowledgeable and popped the dent out, then put some study on the car he said needed to dry. He said he'd come back the next day to finish the clear coat. I paid him $480. He did come back, but said the product was recalled and he had to redo the job, but have me a confirmation number to get a refund for the day before, but the job was still $480. I paid him again. I haven't been able to teach him since. After removing the product from my car, there's a white patch and new dents. Now I'm out $980 and my car looks worse. I just don't want this to happen to anybody else.

What grocery store did this guy approach you at? I have encountered him and want to find him. I know he has Oregon plates and have license plate #. Do you have any other info on him?
