Here's my encounter with this piece of trash: My car needed a very expensive repair and I had posted a Craigslist ad looking for an experienced mechanic to save some money and also to have it done in a timely manner. This guy called me and talked my ear off about stupid car stuff to win me over with his "experience." I go to drop the car off and it's a sketchy apartment complex.

Should've been my first clue but I was blinded by the hope of my car being fixed and I've done an engine swap in a parking lot so I wasn't too judgy. Gave him a few hundred bucks up front, less than half of the parts cost from the dealer. He supposedly had some connection at the dealer to get a discount. He started making excuses on day 2 that it was gonna take longer.

Took him a couple days to "get the parts." Then he needed more money. He sent me a "receipt" from the dealer showing all $1100 in parts. This obviously turned out to just be a quote, which I realized after calling every nissan parts department in the city to ask if anyone had bought those parts. I started to catch on and he kept making pathetic excuses, lying about being in the hospital, etc.

He stopped responding and kept the keys for another day or so before telling him I was on my way with an officer and then he left the keys on the tire and hid inside his trash hole while I had my car towed home since it wouldn't start.
