No one likes having to visit their local mechanic, but there’s no escaping regular maintenance and car repair costs. Just be careful about where you go. Looking for cheaper alternatives. More tonight, my contact 13 consumer alert.
so this guy posted on facebook that he is a mechanic and it was his day off and he can fix your car. Cheat Jackie Bryson doesn’t have the money to take her old tourists into the shop to replace it. Sagging struts and shocks. So she hired a guy who said he would meet her and then by the necessary parts so I can go to my shop and get the parts cheaper than what you would ever get them out of auto zone like that. A man claiming to be the mechanic’s brothers stopped by, so she gave him $175 to buy parts. That’s the last she ever heard of either of them. I text him, I call him. I can’t get ahold of him. It’s called the mobile mechanic scam. If you’re hiring someone to come out to your house, you’ve got to make sure they’re properly licensed. It’s easy to do.
Nevada’s DMV has a list of licensed body shops, auto dealers, and more. If you think you’ve found a legitimate mobile mechanic, AAA says, get their address and Google them. Make sure they have a truck full of professional tools, not just some wrenches and screwdrivers. Ask if they take credit cards and never pay cash in advance. It’s a lesson, Jackie. Learn the hard way. That’s wrong. You don’t do people that way. That’s for sure. You don’t do people that way. So here’s the contact 13.
