Jeeps R Us Larie Tales This man extorted monies from and stoked my jeep with a illegal lien sale that is ridiculous Laguna beach California
I went to jeeps r us to get a new engine in my CJ7. My truck was left at there location while I waited for a estimate. After a month or two I went down to the shop to see how progress was. Nothing had been done. I guess this is why I never received an estimate. I spoke to Larie and he said he would need a 1500 dollar deposit and he would write up a estimate. I paid him 1500.00 cash and he said he would get back to me with an estimate. After several months I went back to Larie to see what was going on. Larie stated he would need another 1000 dollars and would write me an estimate. I paid him another 1000.00 dollars and waited for his estimate. After a couple more months I went into the shop to find out what was going on and he stated he had put a lien sale on my jeep for storage costs. I asked him how this could be when he has not giving me an estimate. He said he would need another 1000.00 dollars and would email me the estimate within 24 hours and not to worry about the lien sale that was to get me down to the shop. I told him I never received paperwork on a lien sale and that this was my first time hearing about it. He said don't worry about it just get him another 1000.00 dollars after I receive his estimate.
After another month went by without a single email from Larie despite the hand full I had written him questioning the status of my vehicle. I emailed him explaining my concern. I received a email back within 5 min stating that I had owed him 2500 in storage fees and that he now owns my jeep. I asked how is this possible when I paid you a deposit of 2500.00 for an engine and never received not one estimate from you nor did he ever do or even start any of the work on my jeep. He claims that no work was started because I did not bring him another 1000.00 dollars but that was not paid because I felt 2500 was a sufficient deposit and that he should of sent me the estimate and received a go ahead from me and installed the engine given me the balance to pay when the jeep was finished. I had thought that was the way to do business. Instead he extorted my money and stole my vehicle from me.
