this SCUM MIKE HABER HAD me fly out and then attempted to extort me.  I have the email attached that shows he even tried to extort me for another $1000 even when I came back to chicago. SO, I  dont know what facts MIKE HABER told you but clearly he is showing you the bill of sale for $123,000.  It was a wholesale transaction.... who cares who buys it or drives it....the deal was made between me and mike and ONCE he smelled blood he began his extortion tactics me.  I was up front with him and told him I was going to drive the car, but WHO cares who the car was bought for... HE AGREED TO A PRICE AND THEN ATTEMPTED TO EXTORT ME ONCE I WAS THERE. 

I HAVE BOUGHT AND SOLD THOUSANDS OF CARS!  NEVER ENCOUNTERED ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE! THE PROOF IS RIGHT BELOW! LOOK AT THE BILL OF SALE AND LOOK AT THE EMAIL AND YOU BE THE JUDGE! PS IF MIKE HABER IS A LEGITIMATE BUSINESSMAN LIKE HE SAYS WHY DOES HE WANT AN EXTRA $1000 DOLLARS SOOO BADDD.  BE WARY! HE EVEN ADMITS HIMSELF IT IS EXTORTION!!!!!!!! L@@K !!!

Mike, On my file for his deal, I have the following payments:
$5000 via wire from our account to yours.
$106,000 via wire from our account to yours.
$5000 via wire from Sonny's personal account to yours.
$7000 cash that we gave to Sonny when he flew in to pick up the Ferrari.
TOTAL= $123,000

Are you telling me he only gave you $6000 cash?  If he gave you the $7000 cash, then it looks like to me you are trying to EXTORT us for additional money from agreed Purchase price and Bill of Sale.

Please explain what he owes you for?

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

phony report filed on Pro Auto Mike Haber

AUTHOR: pro-auto.com - (United States of America)

Hi folks, this is Mike Haber owner of Professional Auto. Its sad to see this negative and misleading post by Sana G Mehraban of 1179 Blackstallion dr Naperville il 60540  Sonny is intentionally misleading the public with false and inflammatory statements to attempt to taint  this companys  reputation.  Sonny also is attempting to mislead you to believe he is a retail customer however he works for a car dealership called International Cars center(ICC) located at 434 e north ave Lombarld il 60148f  of which the car was sold to. 

Here is the sequence of events. 1- On 07-09-12 Sonny contacted me with regards a 2005 Ferrari 430 spider that was advertised for sale. He introduced himself as the sales person for International Cars center and asked a few questions about the car. After said description, he asked if we would wholesale the car for $123,000.  He told me they were selling the car to a client who was the friend of the owner of ICC.  ICC signed the bill of sale and said they need a few days to get funded before they would bankwire the full amount of car. We both agreed I would hold the car until that Friday(7-13) and if it took a few more days they would send a deposit to hold car.

Sonny called me and txt me over the next several days that they were waiting for funding by the bank, then his excuse was the owner used the funding to buy a couple of  other cars and they need a few more days. The lies and bs went on till Wed 7-18 when the owner Wong from ICC called me and said he would like to wire a non refundable deposit for $5,000 and they would send sonny out to inspect the car on Friday 7-19 and bankwire the balance if car was as represented. On  Tues 7-24 when sonny finally showed up to inspect the car, he changed his story again and now he is buying the car for himself.  

I had enough of his bs and told him exactly that.   I just felt like enough was enough. He then threatened me with violence, broke his phone over my cafeteria table, and demanded his deposit money back. After several tense moments of arguments back and forth, the car was sold for $123,000 The same and original agreed price. I received a bankwire from the ICC for 107,500 7,000 cash from him and he wanted to pay by credit card or by check for the balance which was not agreed to by me.

This infuriated him more and  most likely his reason for the internet posts He ultimately was able to have someone wire the 3500 balance which in was received at 545pm.  Even as big a jerk this guy was, I lent him a car to go to lunch while waiting for balance of wire. I also set him up and his girlfriend with a casino executive in Atlantic city to comp them dinner on Pro-auto.com.  

To sum it up, Sonny and icc didnt do anything that was originally agreed to, stalled me for over 2weeks and  he didnt even come with enough money to wire or pay the full 123,000 which was what was agreed to from start to finish. He also then tried and have his bank request the money back from my bank several days afterwards and right before he post this up. He works for a car dealership and is in the car business as well as misleads  everyone on his post that he is a poor and unsuspecting retail consumer victim of extortion but  paid exactly what was agreed to so you have to ask yourself where is the extortion he claims to be a victim of?

Also he tried to scam the last 3500 that was owe so who flys out to by a car with not having the needed funds-Sonny the flim flam artist does. Lastly, This is all about an argument between 2 dealers of which the first Sonny and Icc is trying to play the good people of this community in an attempt to taint my personal reputation. Keep your eyes out for the federal lawsuit Professional Auto will be filing   against againt the real pond scum named Sonny

In my 15years and thousands of cars that I have sold, I never had a complaint or problem with anyone so please dont let this Loser unfairly sway your opinions. If you are considering purchasing one of my vehicles and are concerned in anyway shape or form, please call me at 215-633-0775 and if anyone would like to see the supporting documents email me- mike@pro-auto.com I am posting some supporting documents so you can see for yourselfs that Icc started the deal on 07-9 stalled me till 7-24 and paid the same price that was originally agreed to.

And Thanks to Jeff B for bringing this to my attention and for the positive review.

#3 Consumer Comment

Pro Auto/Mike Haber, Great place to buy a car

AUTHOR: Jeff - (United States of America)

I am a long time customer of Pro Auto and the guy who wrote the negative review is obviously confused or a scammer. I have known Mike for 15 years and I have bought many vehicles from him including Bentleys, Ferraris, Porsches, and Mercedes (I am not a dealer just a car enthusiast). I have never known a car dealer that I trusted until I met Mike so do yourself a favor and don't let the goofball who posted a bad review misinform you. I assume that you can contact me via the administrator and I would be more than happy to show you proof of multiple purchases and provide a reference for Pro Auto (I wonder how many vehicles Mr. negative has bought from mike or anybody for that matter). I don't normally do this type of thing but I felt this was not credible and so i had to call out this person. J
