Beware - Jimmy Deering - Porsche Mechanic
Criminal posing as a mobile Porsche mechanic is working major urban areas of California (Bay area and Southern Ca) as well as Las Vegas. His name is Jimmy Deering and he is a short, round faced, shaved headed, mid-thirties white with multiple body and arm tattoos. He typically runs his operation from a van and the internet and emails. He is modestly trained having worked for legitimate Porsche mechanics in the Bay area and can pass himself off as a valid mechanic. He became self-employed several years ago and has established himself as a low-cost option for the older air-cooled Porsche cars and is very actively marketing himself in the Bay area and Las Vegas even though he resides in southern California in San Bernardino County, typically moving between homes that are being repossessed.
In recent years he has been methodically chosing customers to openly steal from while continuing to service others creating a modest following of customers who believe him to be legitimate. Over the last couple of years he has become more brazen and even long-time customers have begun to have problems with his work and upon taking their cars to legitimate shops they are finding that he is swapping out parts and replacing them with incomplete and broken parts as well as cutting many corners that leave the cars unsafe on the road. He is working independently without any licensing with the BAR (California Bureau of Automotive Repair) and does not have any insurance which are both legally required in California. This also means that you will have no recourse should something happen. He has recently been indicted for multiple felony counts involving stolen property and running a chop shop but continues to practice his trade while being out on bail awaiting trial.
He runs a basic con game common with illegitimate mechanics where they switch out more expensive good parts from one customer then replace the parts with less-expensive, or stolen parts and live off the difference by selling the newer or mechanically sound parts.
Be advised, should you feel that you can control things you would be like others who felt the same and are now regretting the decision. Jimmy Deering has no legitimate backing and lives on the run from many creditors who were once customers as well as employees and has multiple civil judgements against him that will allow the parties to take measures to recover thier losses that will include serving future customers with legal documents that require any moneys owed to Jimmy Deering to be paid toward damages. Failure to do so will afford them the right to come after Deering's future customers for payment and collections companies are becoming much better at applying this tactic. While you may think you are saving money working with an illegitimate mechanic in the end you could end up having to pay twice and Jimmy Deering will not return anything, he will sell it and tell you to take him to court and as he has no assets and attempts to live without any paper trail he believes he that this makes it impossible to affect recourse which is far from the truth.
