On Tuesday, August 11th, 2015, I was looking for someone that could do dent removal and scratch touch-up on my SUV. I posted couple pictures to under the name Franky and some other numbers. I got a text message back with a quote for 145 that was lower than others. So I decided to give the guy a try. I made the appointment with the guy to come to my home around lunch time (11:30am on Wednesday, August 12th, 2015). He's a heavy set Hispanic with dark complex skin and a shiny red truck. He looked at both bumpers and said that he could do it. I asked him how long and he said it would only take him about 15 minutes. He didn't even clean the rear bumper. He just sprayed the corner rear bumper and moved on to work on the front bumper corner. He did sand out the front bumper corner and primed it before sprayed it. Then my wife asked him if he could work on the scratches on the passenger front door for the SUV and he quoted us for 45.
I made a big mistake by asking him to work on my Toyota minivan too. He quoted us 150 to fix the scratch on the left passenger door, a dent on the right passenger door, the scratch on the front bumper and scratch on the rear door. I asked him how long it would take and he said probably 10 minutes. This time he asked for a bucket of water and asked us to come inside since he did not want us to breath in the paint vaporization.
As I drove my van back to work I noticed that the scratch on the front bumper and the back door were beginning to re-appear. By then he had asked my wife to pay him cash. She told him she needed to go to the bank to get cash and I called her to let her know that he did not do a good job. So he came out to my workplace and sprayed the back door of my van and told my wife that he's done. As she handed him the rest of the money, he immediately drove off. When I came out 15 minutes later I noticed that the spots where he sprayed had turned dark. I immediately text him but got no respond whatsoever.
Til this day, the paint on both my SUV and mini-van was completely destroyed since he sprayed them and applied some gel that he said would protect them from dust and dirt.
THIS GUY IS SCAMMING PEOPLE BY USING SEVERAL DIFFERENT BUSINESS NAMES ON : A1 DENT REMOVAL, MOBILE DENT REPAIR. THE PHONE NUMBER IS UNDER THE ALIAS FRANKY.
