I’m writing this because I’ve been left with no choice 

WAXWERKS www.waxwerks.net has ripped me off!!!

I worked there doing car audio. I’ve done car audio for 30 years in Indianapolis. 

I’ve also worked at my job 21 years a publicly traded company.

I have a wife and two beautiful children, and a mortgage.

I love doing car audio, it’s my passion.

WAXWERKS www.waxwerks.net  

WAXWERKS asked me if I would come aboard full time and run the car audio side of the business. I told TIMOTHY LUTHER that I would think about it if they could guarantee that I maintain my salary level. I have been doing Car Audio Installations for WAXWERKS www.waxwerks.net since the late part of August 2018.  I’ve installed car audio systems, fixed and corrected problems previous customers had with installs previously done by previous installers who have since left the company, to keep WAXWERKS waxwerk.net in good standing with its loyal customers. I resigned from my daytime job because they assured me that they would match my pay that I was currently making and also guaranteed that I would also make double and I would be able to maintain my salary and be manager of their Car Audio department at WAXWERKS. My wife is a stay at home mom; I’m the sole breadwinner for my family. And have been for the last 15 years. 

I put my trust in WAXWERKS waxwerks.net TIMOTHY LUTHER said with approval from PRINCY HART that they would give me a sign-on bonus for $3000.00 through their Acima loan program deal with Acima www.acima.com since he knows JOE STEPKE personally and have done a loan deal like this WITH HIM many times and once they were funded the money they would give me the money to hold me over to make sure that I had money to cover my mortgage and household expenses until I started receiving ample amount of pay each week between (800-1000) and they would pay it back themselves within 90days as a token for me coming onboard.

I have kids and I would never put them or my home at risk. I applied for loan with Acima, they approved me and WAXWERKS received payment on 11/14/2018. TIMOTHY LUTHER advised that he would have MOLLY FRITZGERALD write me a check for the amount since PRINCY HART was not in the office that day and he advised that MOLLY FRITZGERALD is authorized to write check on behalf of WAXWERKS, which she has check writing privileges and check account under WAXWERKS.

TIMOTHY LUTHER stated that he called MOLLY FRITZGERALD to bring him a check for $3000.00. Later that day, TIMOTHY LUTHER gave me the check for $3000.00 and told me to deposit check. Check was deposited on 11/16/18 only to come back NSF on 11/20/2018. I confronted MOLLY FRITZGERALD and TIMOTHY LUTHER about the check.

TIMOTHY LUTHER stated that he would have PRINCY HART reissue check to me ASAP when she comes into the store as no deposits were made into that account as of yet. Three (3) weeks late, still no reissued check.  I confronted PRINCY HART who stated that she had no knowledge of check, but MOLLY FRITZGERALD stated that PRINCY HART was well aware of the check being written to me as she agreed to it also.

Now TIMOTHY LUTHER have now reneged on their part and have convinced PRINCY HART not to reissue check because I refused to do any car deals with TIMOTHY LUTHER so he advised PRINCY HART who is now the new owner of WAXWERKS due to RAY DEMAREE signing the business over to her due to his failing health, has refused in Good Faith to reissue check. 

Not only did I quit my job to work there full time on a verbal promise from PRINCY HART AND TIMOTHY LUTHER, now I’m dealing with a NSF check that was fraudulently written from the start as PRINCY HART, MOLLY FRITZGERALD and TIMOTHY LUTHER had no intention of honoring the check which is FRAUD.

I have brought this to the attention of PRINCY HART and WAXWERKS OWNER at the time RAY DEMAREE whom I thought would make it right, He advised me to send him copy of check which had WAXWERKS address on it and he would see about getting me the money. RAY DEMAREE advised me that he could give me $1500.00 per our conversation.

But somehow TIMOTHY LUTHER convinced RAY DEMAREE and PRINCY HART to not make good because I didn’t do any so-called car deals with him. I came from KIM STEREO at LIBERTY BELL FLEA MARKET so everyone knows my character and my integrity. THIS IS NOT A PLACE THAT YOU WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH FOR CAR AUDIO OR REMOTE STARTS OR ANYTHNG. The reason WAXWERKS have been CANCELING CUSTOMERS REMOTE START APPOINTSMENTS THAT CUSTOMERS have appointment for is because they have no-one to do them because the REMOTE STARTER INSTALLER LEFT BECAUSE WAXWERKS ARE NOT PAYING THEM.


.   I HAVE BEEN GOOD TO WAXWERKS TO HELP THEIR BUSINESS GROW and they treat me like this. It’s CHRISTMAS TIMES, I have no job or money and my checking account it now in the negative (-1900.00) due to a BAD CHECK THEY WROTE ME AND WAXWERKS WON’T HONOR. For them to put me in a situation like this I can’t believe PRINCY HART would allow this after all I have done to help her business.

Hello everyone, I am doing a fundraiser to help out a friend of mine who was a former employee of WAXWERKS know as Indy in Castleton, Indiana. He was conned into leaving his previous job to come and work there full time as a Car Audio Manager / Lead installer and even promised him his own shop next to Ziebart behind Castleton Square Mall.  

Once he found out that the Managers Tim Luther and accounting person Princy Hart were running a Ponzi scheme, they retaliated against him, and  Waxwerks has refused to pay him for wages owed and to honor a fraudulent check they wrote him for  $3000.00,  which the owner RAY DEMEREE was aware of and has refused to in “GOOD FAITH” compensate former employee (Charles) for the financial harm that has been caused to him by TIM LUTHER and PRINCY HART,  because RAY DEMAREE hired them to work in his place of business.

Former employee is now on the verge of losing his home because of this. Everyone has refused to help him.  He filed a police report, went to the Hamilton Country Prosecutors office & check division, Marion County Prosecutors office and the Attorney General and they all have refused to help him. I know its Christmas time and money is of the essence, but how can we allow this to happen to a person who is in the mist of losing everything he was worked for who is the innocent victim with no one willing to help. 

Please go out and read the reviews on RIP-OFF REPORT.COM AND GOOGLE REVIEWS on this company.  I ask any and all if you have $1.00 to spare or whatever, it will come a time to where it will Pay it Forward to the next person.

If you need more information, please send direct email message and I can better discuss with you.  Let’s not give up on this person. Thank you all for your generosity and consideration at this time of year.  Please show your support at: gofundme.com/f/2zm2mt-legal-defense-fund

Attention past and potential new customers. Waxwerks & Audio+ did not relocate for a better location or because there was any issues with the previous building as they are telling customers when they call. They were ordered to vacate the building for non payment of utilities and the overhead to use the building.

The previous owner signed over the business to Princy Hart with the hopes that she would continue to run the business as a somewhat reliable and honest place to take your car for detail/tint and audio needs. As some customers may know, there is a person there named Tim Luther that misleads customers into thinking that he is the co-owner and/or manager of the business.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Tim Luther is a convicted felon and is currently on probation for fraud. He is to have NO fidicuary responsibilities with the business. He has written fraudulent checks to Waxwerks employees on for them to come back as NSF. And that's IF they even decide to "pay" their employees.

There have been numerous police runs to the business because they are not paying employees or because actual customers are having to call simply to retrieve their vehicle back from them. Tim and Princy are also using customer cars for their own personal use when the customer is having to leave their car for service for a few days.

Under no circumstances solicit this business any longer. That's if they are even able to open their "new location." Princy and Tim have manged to single handedly ruin a once decently run business due to their greed. Also, DO NOT let them talk you into opening credit with Acima.

They are upping the price of whatever it is that you need financed, securing the loan and then taking the difference of what the product is actually worth, and you're stuck with the monthly charge of paying back the loan.

Please help me to help a friend get justice

AUTHOR: Justin - (United States)

POSTED: Thursday, August 15, 2019

 A friend of mine was ripped off by Waxwerks a few months ago. He sued the company and won a judgement against them. At the following hearing, he sued to try to collect his money via a proceedings supplemental. However, without certain information the judge could not order a garnishment, so he's asked me to help him find this information so his money can be recovered. All I have is a few questions, so please take a few minutes and either email me or text. Calling is fine, but please do it during the day time. I'm not sure how this site works and don't want to post my info publicly, so as soon as you've [hopefully] responded on here, I'll send you my contact info.
