    People do dirty things when they have bills to pay and they are at their wits end. What's worse is they usually start up another shop under another name and do it all over again. This economy has brought out the worst in people.
    Yup. He is already doing the new shop name and move.

    Sorry to hear about this and I hope it all works out in your favor...

    With that said though, when he f'd you over and f'd your car up the first time, that should have been a BIG RED FLAG to not go back to the same douche bag!

    so I just got a call from brian at late model engine. the shop where chris shipped my engine. seems I am not the only one chris is jerking around. I am not surprised that chris lied to lme either. They are trying to help as much as they can but when you dont have all the parts its kinda hard for them to throw together an engine. At least they are trying to help. Wish I had just gone with them in the first place

    Not sure about Florida, but verbal contracts are generally enforceable. I assume you have cancelled checks or credit card receipts for what you have paid him. Type up a synposis of the transaction between you guys, including a timeline with dates (as best you can remember) and give that to the attorney so he has the whole story. Any statements the douchebag made to you about the work, cost, time to complete, etc. should be admissable if it ever gets to court. This includes any receipts, paperwork, or writings he prepared. I always hate seeing fellow car guys get screwed when they try to get work done.
    In Fl verbal contracts are honored. Also to the OP, if you didnt pay cash for your parts/etc, and you payed debit or credit for everything there will be electronic records that you can call and ask to have mailed to you from your bank or credit card company. That should help you out if you end up going to court with the case. Hate seeing a fellow servicemember get screwed. Good luck with everything man.

    Sorry to hear it and it happens a lot everywhere. Plenty of shops like that in Houston. Worst part is they come recommended and probably use to do good work. I have gone to some shops that did good work and a year later I hear horror stories and have even had them screw me over after I had brought my car there several times with no issues. I say get a lawyer and your paperwork and try suing him if not there is always duct tape and alligators.

    I have to mentally prepare myself for jail time before I do something like that, because situations like that have never turned out civilized for me

    If yes, contact JAG, at the least if this is a local business you would be able to get him on the black list. It can hurt his business. they may also be willing to make contact with him.

    I have calmed down a lot over the years.... I know what you mean though. Usually if you confront people face to face they are more likely to go"Oh shit, I might should fix this before I get hurt." Instead of blowing things off.

    No, it's not just this forum. It's the fact there are 3 other people with unfinished cars that just had to pick them up. One is missing his 383 and heads. A lot of this info is over on corvette florida. According to what was posted on CF Chris has been evicted from the Blountstown shop.

    This was posted by them:

    i have filed a complaint with:

    Bob Buchholz
    IVESTIGATOR II
    Divistion of consumer services, Bureau of Investigations

    his contact info is:

    850 871 0530 and 850 528 1909

    i encourage everyone to get in contact with him asap.
    They are going after him for criminal fraud now.
