In April of 2010 my husband and I dropped off a 1984 camaro (that RAN) and a check for $15,000.00 with John Miller and Infamous Customs in Sedalia, MO for a complete customization. We were told that the car would be completed in July of the same year. At the time my husband was working in a job where he was in Sedalia, MO at least 3 times a week, so it wasn't a big deal to have the car 3 hours from our home. We could still monitor things. In July my husband changed jobs and we were no longer able to monitor John Miller. In Aug and Sept of 2010 we had facebook communication, myspace communication, as well as phone calls and emails with John Miller. Around Christmas he advised that there were issues with his mechanics, then there were issues with his painter, then JOhn got sick. This went on for months and months. We started demanding pictures and received 4 or 5 pictures of random motors, and one of the pictures was of a painted hood that I later found on the internet. He had just taken a picture of the picture on the internet and sent it to us saying it was our car.
In May of 2011 I went to Sedalia, MO to the shop to talk to John. I found our car outside, unlocked, missing the hood, engine and transmission. The body had not been sanded or touched in any way whatsoever. Thats when he started saying that the "frame was bent" on our car and that he had purchased a second car with our money to restore and that he would sign that car title over to us when it was completed. Shortly after that he was telling us on the phone that the "second car" was back at the shop. We again drove to Sedalia, MO to see it. John wasn't there, but one of his employees let us in the shop. We found that he had hidden our car in the unused paint booth. His employee reached John on the phone and had told us that John was coming to the shop to meet him. He drove by, saw us, and then called and lied and said he was in Texas. John Miller has taken $15,000.00 or our money and our car...I have even reported it stolen to the local authorities because John Miller refuses to speak to us in any way (he even"unfriended" us on his facebook page).
This man will steal your money, lie to you the entire time, hide from the police, and I am not the first customer he has ripped off. I do know that he has purchased, and completed two of his own personal vehicle customizations since we dropped off our car. I think my money funded his own personal gains. STAY AWAY FROM JOHN MILLER AND HIS CROOKED CAR CLUB - INFAMOUS TOYS CAR AND TRUCK CLUB!!!!
