RIPPED AT AMCO TRANMITIONS GREENVILLE,N.C.

I was ripped off

I should have known better. Have you ever heard when it sounds "TO GOOD TO BE TRUE "---- IT USUALLY IS ? Well, thats what happened to me. I saw a YELLOW PAGE add -- it read as follows ---FREE tow --- with car repair. Great, so I called Amco Transmition on Hwy 11 in Greenville NC. A man named Tom anwsered the phone and said that they would TOW my car --EL CHEAPO. Well after I got there he told me he would need a $100 DEPOSIT FOR THE TOW AND DIONOSTICS CHECK---AND THIS WOULD BE PUT TOWARDS THE REPAIR BILL. I asked him why this was not written down in the yellow pages add and he had no reply. This should be considerd FALSE advertising. I have a 1989 Toyota Corrola GTS. I was not able to get the motor to turn over. It was like the car wanted to start but wasn"t getting enough gas. The first thing I thought was they would check the battery, alternater and starter. I solved the battery problem by buying a new battery from WAL MART. The starter seemed to be working fine. I mean it was firing. Long story short, I called TOM and he said they had put the car on dionostics and that the STARTER IGNITION MODULE had gone bad. He said that the part would be AROUND $179 and labor would run almost $379. I almost passed out. So by me trying to save money on a tow I was left with a $400 dollar payment CASH in order to get my car back. BUSTED!!! I had been ripped off. WHY ? Because 3 days after paying this crasy bill --GUESS WHAT? YEAH -- MY CAR JUST COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN.First the radio, then the heater, then the lights started getting dimmer and dimmer. Out in the middle of no where. ___STRANDED!! I took it elsewhere and found out it was my ALTERNATER ---ALL ALONG. Paid $160 and $50 labor and my car is running like a top. I asked Tom it he could give my OLD starter ignitiom module and he came back and sais they couldn"t find it. Of course they couldn"t --because--THEY NEVER PUT ONE ON MY CAR. I am in the process of trying to get my money back because of this CON MAN. Any ideas--besides the BBB?? ANY HELP would be apreciated. jim

It is a law in Fl, they must save the old part and return it to the customer. Call your state consumer services , they should be able to do something. Also send email to all local news media, and the rip off website, type rip off in google you will find it there. good luck.
