Hello. I am writing to you from Vancouver, WA regarding a business deal gone bad (to say the least) with Mid City Auto Salvage, more specifically Al Talyanski & Shaun Brayden.
In mid December 2005, my husband was contacted via email by Mid City Auto. They contacted him in response to a search he had done. Low & behold they had exactly what he was looking for (a 1999 Super Duty Ford Engine) for only $1995.00. The company seemed legit & the price was right so we proceeded to give them $1995.00 check by phone for the engine. To make a long story short, we have no money & we have no engine. We have serious doubts that the engine ever existed. We have all the documentation to back up our story, including a letter our lawyer sent to Mid City Auto (dated 1/18/06) demanding a full refund within 10 days of the receipt of the letter.
Since this nightmare has began, we have since discovered that Mid City Auto has over 221 complaints registered with the Better Business Bureau of Wisconsin & as of 1/26/04 the BBB revoked their membership.
During our many phone conversations to Mid City Auto in attempt to get our money back, we have received horrible verbal abuse from Shaun Brayden. The most recent was 1/27/06 @ in the morning when my husband called Mid City Auto again in attempt to get our money back; Shaun Brayden told him "For every time you call me, I'm going to hold your money another 6 months". Shaun called our home again that evening & threatened bodily harm towards our children. (to which we filed an immediate police report).
I have more documentation than anyone could imagine to back up our story.
Thank you for your listening.....has anyone been successful in getting back their money?????? Please tell me how??????
Did you all know that Al Talyanski has a new $500k home?? Hmm.....wonder how he can afford that???
Shawna & Zach
