Fixing the Work of Scam Artists

Example of auto body scam prior to real repairs

Don't be embarrassed if this happened to you. Once a week we see a car that has been "fixed" by a scam artist. He approachs people and offers to repair damage on the spot for a reasonable price. He may hammer, apply fillers and paint. When he's done he explains that you just need to let things dry then everything will be perfect. He may even offer to come back to finish the job. You won't see him again and you will have no way to contact him. These guys create more damage than they started with. Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu that has been attacked by one of these scam artists. As you can see in the photos below, he didn't fix anything but he made the car uglier and in need of more repairs.
