In Consumer Fraud

Client stated someone vandalized the electrics of her car and it stopped running.  Client asked a mechanic to fix the car.  Client was told that they would inspect it and tell her how much it would cost to repair.  1 week later client was quoted $2,500.00 for replacement wiring and fuses.  Client then told the mechanic that she had to try and gather that amount of money. Client was able to come up with $500.00 for a deposit which she was initially quoted, to get the work started.  When client showed up at the repair shop she was then told it would be $750 to start repairs on the car.   Two days later client was able to come up with the remainder $250.00.  Mechanic then told client she would have to pay $2,500.00 to start work.  Client stated she begged and pleaded with mechanic but they declined to do the work, and charged her thousands of dollars for “storage” on the car which they will require to allow her to collect her car, even though no work was done.  Client contacted the BBB and DMV and filed a complaint against the car shop.  The mechanic put a lien on the car without telling client or sending her any notices.
