About 6-7 years ago a customer had us tow his no run 2000 Chevrolet Blazer into the shop. The tow was billed to our shop.  The conclusion of our diagnosis was that the car needed an engine and the customer was not gong to fix it.  Imagine my susprise to come in on a Monday morning and find the Blazer was gone from our lot.  It had been blocked in by other cars but someone had went to the business next door drove up over the curb and the grass and drug it out of our lot over our curb.  You could see the tracks in the grass and on the curb.  The total that was owed was only about $80.  Guess what I never heard from the owner (kid) again.  So I  assume someone out of the blue did not steal a car that would not run. 

I turned the bill over to our law firm for collections simply on the principle of the matter.  About 6 months ago my law firm collected on the bill which was now over $300 due to interest and court costs.  Then today I am left two one star reviews slandering our business on Google by this individual. This person was nothing other than a thief and Google allows this kind of reviews to occur.  I have received about 6 undeserved one star reviews with no comments in the last year.  Stuff from a former employee I fired and reviews from people with no record of them having ever been in the shop.
