Oh how I wish I had taken the very simple step of checking his name before I agreed to the mobile repair he was offering.  Similar to the other stories, he flagged me down after noticing a a dent in my fender that I had yet to get repaired.  He offered to have it done within a couple of hours the next day but needed to know right away because he was using leftover product from a previous repair and that was the only way he could offer such a low price.  He and 2 other men came to the house and spent a couple of hours pounding out the dents, painting (he even had asked me for the vin number to ensure he had the correct paint) and like the other reports, then left a heavy waxy coat over the area.  He instructed me to wash it off the next afternoon.  He requested to be paid in cash, when I told him i didn't have cash, he wanted to follow me to an atm, i told him i refused.    So he asked for a check but asked for more than the original quote because he was going to have to take it to a check cashing place to pay his men over the weekend.  His men also aggressively asked for tips.  The whole event was unsettling and to be truthful, from the way he waved me down I should have trusted my gut but it  seemed a very easy, inexpensive way to get the car fixed. 
Of course, you already know the outcome from reading the other reports.  When I tried to wash off the waxy substance, it has kind of integrated with the paint.  The paint doesn't match.  The surface is not smooth.  It is not a job well done.
I attempted to call immediately and the man that was so responsive trying to get the business will not return calls or texts.
I attempted to stop pay on the check, but believe that is why he makes you wait until the next day...he wants to have time for the check to clear. 

Run, don't walk if this guy approaches you.
