2 Investigators: Parking Lot Dent-Repair Scams


TONIGHT, THE 2 INVESTIGATORS EXPOSE A DENT REPAIR SCAM. MEN ROAMING PARKING LOTS OFFERING TO FIX YOUR CAR FOR CHEAP. BUT IT IS NOT CHEAP, IT ENDS UP COSTING MORE IN THE LONG RUN. IMAGINE HAVING YOUR CAR REPAIRED IN A PARKING LOT FOR A BARGAIN PRICE. COULD IT BE TRUE? IT IS EMBARRASSING THAT I WAS DUPED AND TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. SHE WANTS TO WARN PEOPLE ABOUT THIS NEW SCAM. I WAS LOADING MY TRUNK, TWO MEN APPROACHED. IT WAS THIS PARKING LOT AT HOME DEPOT, TWO MEN WHO CLAIMED TO WORK AT A NEARBY CAR DEALERSHIP OFFERED TO FIX A DENT IN HER CAR RIGHT IN THE PARKING LOT. THEY POPPED OUT A DENT AND IT LOOKED GOOD. SHE PAID THEM $300 TO PAINT THE DENT, ANOTHER $100 TO FIX HER BROKEN GRILL. SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THAN THE THOUSAND DOLLAR ESTIMATE SHE HAD PREVIOUSLY RECEIVED. THEY PUT A RUBBING COMPOUND ON A WET SURFACE. SO IT BONDED TO THE SURFACE. SHE WAS UNABLE TO BUFF OUT THE COMPOUND WHICH RUINED THE FINISH ON HER CARS UNDER. — FENDER. THERE ARE NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS TYPE OF SCAM ONLINE. THIS BODYSHOP SAYS THEY SEE IT ALL THE TIME. THEY PROBABLY TALK A GOOD GAME. THEY BASICALLY TELL THE CUSTOMERS WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR. THIS SHOP FIXED HER CAR FOR $500. I WOULD DEFINITELY THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU COMMIT TO SOMEONE REPAIRING YOUR CAR IN A PARKING LOT. WE TRIED TO GET SOME ANSWERS FROM THE MAN IN THE LOT. YOU PUT THE COMPOUND ON TOP OF THE PAINT AND IT WAS RUINED AND THEY HAD TO REDO THE WHOLE THING. SHE FEELS THAT WAS A RIP OFF WHAT IS YOUR REACTION? I AM SORRY SHE FEELS THAT WAY. I CAN’T IMAGINE WHY THAT WOULD HAPPEN. WHAT CAN YOU LEARN FROM THIS? THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS, I WAS NOT CAUTIOUS ENOUGH, THAT IS MY LESSON. THIS PARKING LOT SCHEME HAS BEEN A PROBLEM IN OTHER PARTS

  1. Listen ,she likes the job at first,then complaining about the compound ..she was supposed to wipe it off after a few minutes…she left it on to long and it messed up the clear coat on the car..not the paint.so the body shop she took it to charged he for repainting but only needed clear coat….this lady got messed up by body shop and street guy….
    The body shop loves bad work being done on the streets because now they can make money doing it over again..they don't care about bad jobs on the streets being done .they still getting paid, maybe even more because of the bad job being done to it first…just go YouTube next time and they're going to show you how to do it yourself next time…and no more was when finished with job guys…just push the dents out and leave the rest alone
