I and my friends fix cars and trucks. Recently, I have had several really bad experiences with businesses who mess up things and then try to cheat me. Perhaps, because they hear a female talking to them, they assume I am stupid and know nothing about this business and thus, can be cheated. Today, I just had a huge fight with Discount Starter & Alternator that sent me the wrong starter for my Aveo car we just rebuilt. This began a long series of mistakes on the part of the seller which they take zero responsibility for forcing me to sue them.
When we ordered the first starter, all was well and I paid them online. Then, the starter turned out to be the wrong one, it was for the same sort of car, an Aveo, but a different year so it didn’t fit. I did all the proper paperwork and sent it back to them.
The sales staff sent me an email saying they received the starter and were sending a replacement. I waited and waited and then called them. They told me, they sent me a refund instead and didn’t tell me and I was supposed to get it from Pay Pal. I never got it from Pay Pal. So we argued about this.
First, the fact that they never told me there was going to be any refund and secondly, where was it and who is responsible for it. Since they have the paper trail and I have nothing, I ordered them to go to Pay Pal and find out what happened and to refund me and get their money back from Pay Pal since this was all lost before I got so much as a shipping code number.
THEY REFUSED! Hung up on me!!! I called another staff and asked to talk to someone higher up. THEY REFUSED. I called again, demanded information, they told me ‘We don’t want to pay the money to you, why should we?’ I said, ‘I am suing you for this, then.’ They hung up again.
DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE CHEATERS IN GEORGIA. They are rude, stupid, and noxious. I recently had a fight with a local car dealer who I won’t name because they fully surrendered to me in the end after I showed my fangs.
In this case, their mechanics lied about my front brakes, telling me nothing was wrong with the parts insured by them. Finally, I brought in a friend who is a mechanic and he ordered them to take the brakes apart to see how bad they were.
He and I went home and soon got this call (I demanded they fix the brakes for 9 months!!!) ‘You waited too long to have us fix the brakes so it costs an extra $100 to fix them.’ I blew up. I yelled, literally, ‘I am coming in and I am going to sue you all, how dare you do this.’
When I showed up, we had a magnificent fight. I deliberately started it in the garage area and then lured the mechanics into the SHOW ROOM. There, I gave a very loud speech, I used to address mass crowds in the past and sing operatically so I have a booming voice without any screaming at all, I just channel Brünhilda, and the entire sales staff and the bosses came running and within ten minutes, they surrendered to me. I didn’t pay a penny and got apologies.
I now learned today that Discount Starter & Alternator has many complaints online about their business practices. It is obvious now, they are con artists and I am going to contact their home state to see if I can shut them all down for good. How dare they do this. My story today is the #4 item on You Tube when someone uses the word ‘bad’ while Googling this business:
PART ll: I have the boss on the phone. He is complaining about us talking about his ‘business’ online. It turns out a LOT of people are complaining specifically of the same problem I am having: I just got off the phone with the ‘boss’ who said he doesn’t care and thinks that ripping off everyone is OK since no one can stop him, he is in Georgia. So he stole my money outright. Some ‘customer service’!
At various websites for auto repair people gather, this business has a bad reputation. Several cases just this recent time frame had the identical problem of them pretending to use Pay Pal to return funds only there is no money and no paper trail for the victims. I can’t shut down this fraudulent operation for it is in Georgia but intend to contact the government there to complain and hope they stop these guys from stealing money from everyone.
