No offense to you but I'd sure like to hear the other side of this story.
Unless both parties agree, the recording is not admissible. Answering machine recordings are admissible because the calling party knows they are being recorded. If you call someone in jail, you will hear a beeping sound every few seconds to let the parties know they are being recorded. Public officials like police officers can be recorded because their conversations are public. Visa versa, they can record you without your knowledge.
Is the car currently in your name? In the case you describe, it's strictly a civil matter and the police shouldn't get involved. You can file an embezzled vehicle report. The police will investigate for 3 days. If they haven't got the car back, they will turn it into a stolen report.
where in Big D is it?....I'm in west Dallas let me know if you need back up...
That's what he needs. A bunch of H.A.M.B.ers banding together and rolling in there thick. Roll in ten deep, pay the bill, get the keys, and ride out with escorts. Strength in numbers. I'm not advocating any vigilante shit, but if you've got a bunch of guys who know what the hell they're talking about (and have the ability to keep their cool), well, there's both safety and strength in numbers. I wish I was within a few hours drive. I'd love to help you out. But you need to assemble and roll ASAP.
Man by Monday it will be on a container ship headed over seas!
WOW I wish you luck but like every one here Get that car out asap! I think the car may be gone you say he has to send you certified letter in the mail, well the way this guy acts I don't think he would send you any thing if you have not seen this car then how do you know he has any more? This SOB may just have cut it all up and sold it as parts by now. Man I wish you lots of luck.
This just sucks good luck
Texas is a one party consent State when it comes to recording conversations. Not all States are. That means as long as I know I am recording a conversation between you and I it is legal.
But that is just a small part of this whole unbelievable story. How the hell do you give your car to a total stranger with a very vague agreement of what is to be done, then lose track of him, find him, and then WAIT TILL NEXT WEEK TO GO SEE IT ??????????? Someone needs to reach through the computer screen and shake you into reality. GO GET YOUR CAR TODAY !!!!!!!
You can best believe that if I were in your shoes I would be down at the local police station filing a stolen car report and having them accompany me to the guys location. Then, if you get the car in your sights you can cancel the charges against him and get your car the hell out of there right then and there.
Geesh !!!!!! I somehow don't think we have heard the end of this one yet.
Yea curious, to know what happened. Hope it went well for a sh*tty situation
Any new developments?
Oh crap! rhd is missing now
Does the H.A.M.B. post bail for Members in need? If I were in rhd's situation I might need bail money right about now, because I sure as hell would've at LEAST assaulted that prick motherfucker. Probably would've stopped to piss on his dog on the way out, too.
Rhd - I'm in Ft Worth and would be glad to go with you tomorrow mid morning to get your car! PM me so we can set it up. Even if you don't have the money lets go look at it and make our presents known.
y el carro?
I would be on my way to him right now if I was you
Who is this guy? What shop is it so the rest of us can avoid that guy.
Have any friends or friends of friends that are local cops? I would get one of them to tag along when you pick it up.
RHD is MIA! Put out an APB on the SOB, and hope he ain't SOL.
I was just wondering what happened Monday. Any bets ?
You could bet your lucky stars that if I got my car back I would proudly be posting for all to know, this doesn't sound to good!
100% agree. this has bad news written all over it.
Did you get your car back?
something doesn't sound right all the way around... he was asked many times who had it/name of the shop, location, etc... there are a ton of us in DFW, if someone had my car held hostage, you bet your ass I'd be there w/a truckload of people... IF the story is legit, hope nothing bad went down
he was on here as late as yesterday afternoon.
Let's wait a day or two more before we go filing a missing person report. He MAY have gotten his car back after all, and he's just out enjoying it. OR, he's locked in the trunk on some service road out in the middle of nowhere...
When you hear a story like his the first thing that comes to mind is there must be something we are missing here. How does someone "lose" a car, and how does someone just "keep" a car. I bet we only got a piece of the puzzle.
Lol u guys crack me up ya got the car everything is good no funny stuff the guys was actuly cool about everything.....I kinda see his side of things now. But it was still messed up, basicly he has had a string of dead beats and he was thinking I was trying to pull something, basicly I still owed him money and he thought he wasn't gonna get it, the work he did looks good I will post up some pictures when I can, they have me working 6 days a week and I'm about dead lol but ya everything worked out but like I said its still jacked upp that just because he had some bad luck I was gonna do the same as others his shop is out of his house so I'm not gonna give out his info but just so people arnt stupid like me STAY AWAY FROM CRAIGSLIST WITH STUFF LIKE THIS! Lol......but thanks everyone
Forget mine too. Glad it turned out well. Now where did I put that house of mine ?
OK, now stop being a dumbass and stay the Hell away from CL. Unless you're looking for a valve cover or something. Ask HAMBers for help from now on. Dumbass. Just messing wit'cha. (Dumbass.)
