    IF you're on these forums you obviously know how to use the internet

    My advice to anyone reading here is this. After I ALMOST got scammed a few yrs ago, I realized that doing research on anybody or anything is as simple as typing in on google "insert company here" scam, or fraud, or complaints etc etc. Do multiple searches with diff negative tags after the company name or product name. It has saved me alot of headaches, it immediately eliminates certain companies because they have so many negative issues. My initial almost scam was from a gray market company called fotoconnection.com. I wiggled out of it thankfully. Go ahead and google fotoconnection.com fraud and it will show you how easy it is nowadays to easily eliminate bad companies like the one mentioned in this thread

    I hate to hear about people gettin screwed by these shops, especially when it happens to someone such as yourself who has so bravely served this country (Way to go Chris, way to show your support to someone who has fought for your freedoms, you low life piece of S*&t!!!) I really hope everything works out for you, and you can get your car done so you can enjoy it.

    Anyone having such accounts and losses from Chris Harwood needs to take steps now to help us all recover what we can from him. There is overwhelming evidence that cases such as the one displayed here are not isolated incidents. Nor do they seem to indicate any accidental failing of customer service, or oversights in prioritizing the workload. In my opinion, all the cases surfacing are painting a blatant picture of blatant WILLFUL fraud and theft being perpetrated by Chris Harwood.

    There is an ongoing thread on my site in the Board of Inquiry forum where information concerning the local investigator is listed who I strongly suggest you contact ASAP.

    http://www.corvetteflorida.com/forum...play.php?f=100

    I am PERSONALLY involved in this as my car was at Chris's shop for 11 months and finally had to be towed away to another shop. 11 months and there is STILL a lot of stuff that needs to be done to finish it up.

    Well, good luck with that. There are quite a few people, myself included, that Chris owes money to. He finally confirmed to me via email that I did NOT get the transmission and differential that I paid for. I have an invoice from him for that transmission and differential that he apparently just faked to make me believe I got what I paid for. He spray painted my turbo housings and claimed that Jet Hot just did a crappy job of ceramic coating them. Unfortunately for Chris, I got the true story directly from Jet Hot. And Chris had the balls to think that I couldn't tell the difference between spray painting and ceramic coating. Flat out lied to my face about it.

    From what I understand, he is telling people he will make things right, but so far there is no evidence at all of that taking place.

    So here's the $64 question: If Chris lied to you before, why do you believe him now? And what makes you so special that he would take care of you FIRST, rather than all the local people after him? My opinion is that you are NOT local, therefor he can say what he wants to you, and you have no way to verify what he claims.

    Of particular interest to you should be the fact that the owner of the building where Chris had XtremeMotorsports has EVICTED Chris from the property. So even though your car is there, Chris doesn't have access to the building any longer. Please contact John Arnold (who owns the property) about it.

    I also strongly urge you to contact the investigator, Bob Buchholz, working on this case.

    stories like these are what scare me into not doing any mods on my car that would require a shop's work.

    Wow, I am in FL as well and was thinking of getting cams/heads done to my ride. Does that job really take years to complete at a shop, or is your case extreme. I don't want to be without my car THAT long as it is my DD. I was hoping a week at the most, lol.

    absolutely not, if you were to do the job by yourself or with a friend it should take around a week if you work on it everyday, with a shop....depends how busy they are, but I wouldn't put up for any more than 1-2wks.

    Adam,

    Protect yourself... Go to the private investigator and at least notify him about your situation so he has more ammunition for his case. Also if you continue to get screwed over then it won't be a fresh start with PI after you already had the info. Don't trust that fool he has got a lot of peoples money and fucked them over. Lots of people from the Ls1tech also. Protect your interest whcih is your TA...

    I am looking at other options but I got orders to 5th force in Oki. And he will put the engine in for free. but I know that means nothing if it never gets done. But to have it put in by anyone else its going to cost me around 2500. and my recent promotion as you know is not that much. But how the hell have you been? you would not even recognize dive school anymore.....where are you now?

    Well just stay on top of it but I would give that guy a call just so he is aware of you also. I would take it somewhere else for tunning though. This sounds like that would be the next thing a fucked up tune and then more shit would go wrong. I doing good. Congrats on your promotion! I have heard from Roig that everything has changed there. That is interesting. I am still on the exchange program with the Dutch Royal Marines. Take care!

    That sucks to hear. When you leaving for Oki? I hope you can at least get the motor in the car before you leave.
