After paying $5,000 for so-called “repairs” on my 1990 Honda – I was told I had a cracked radiator. I asked what in hell happened – this began as merely needing an oil change. At this point, the vehicle did not even appear to be mine! My family’s long-time friend and mechanic, Patrick Garahan, merely responded, “These things happen.”
At first the Police Dept. and Dept. of Motor Vehicles would not help me have this investigated. Finally, CHP investigated the vehicle – verified VIN altering, just as I said. Upon reporting this to Fresno Police Dept. an officer came out and STILL refused to write a report. I should have insisted that someone else be called out – instead I was devastated asking why this was being done to me.
The car would not even run another 100 miles – I lost my vehicle as well as the $5,000 in “repairs.” With my other vehicle (my pride-and-joy Cadillac Eldorado) stripped in the covered garage (near the same time) I was left without transportation, forced to purchase another vehicle.
Need I say more? This is yet another example of what I have been describing. Annihilation of victims behind City of Fresno / Alan Autry / Wilbert Swieso water scam. All reports prohibited – all avenues of help severed.
