I contracted with Lugosi Autosport, Manuel Castro (alias Mike Lugosi) to have my automobile painted with a $400 cash deposit. In the 34 days of correspondence while he had my car in his possession (18 phone calls, 45 texts and 56 emails), I was lied to so many times that I lost count; from progress of the paint job to promises of completion dates.

On the 34th day in his possession, and after reporting the car stolen to the police department, he finally contacted me and blackmailed into paying him $100 to release the location of my vehicle which was a mile from the Mexican border. After receiving the information and talking to the painter, I was informed that absolutely nothing was done to the car because "Lugosi" had not paid him the deposit to start the work. The painter was courteous enough to release the car to me with no drama.

I am now out $100 cash, $40 in gasoline, and behind over a month with my project.
