Midas - Personal property taken from glove box!!
Motor fan repair - Complaint
WINTER PARK, FLORIDA -- I went to have my vehicle serviced at Midas on 01/10/12. The manager
on duty told me it would cost $50, but cash only. I had to run and
get cash and came back. He met me in the parking lot and told me to
give him the cash before his supervisor sees him, and put the cash
into his shirt pocket. I then left, thinking wow..that was strange.
When I arrived home, I noticed my GPS Device was missing from the
glove box, which is always kept there and never taken out. I use it
daily for work purposes.
I immediately returned and confronted the same manager about my GPS.
He proceeded to call the police for me. While the officer checked the
building for the GPS, the manager rushed outside to return the $50 to
me. I told him I wasn't here for that, that I just wanted my property
back. He insisted I take it back, and so I did. The officer did a
walk-through of the shop, but found nothing. I filled out a police
report and have not heard anything about anything until today, which
was my 6th time calling along with 3 separate emails. I was told by a
female that "They are not taking responsibility." Why not?? I have all
the documents from the get-go. I put on the report that I was not
pressing charges. Was that a mistake? I didn't think it would go this
far. I am being treated like the criminal, not the victim. No one from
the company ever called me to inform me of anything. Here it is a
month later with no GPS, no updates on anything and now I'm being told
they aren't taking responsibility. What can I do??
