SOMEWHERE, ARKANSAS -- I needed some auto body work done I had came across someone who lives in my town that told me they own an auto body repair shop and as a favor to me they would give me a pretty good discount, well I needed them to quote me anyway so I knew how much to come up with. They never mentioned they would charge me anything until all the work was done, Well when they did quote me it was an amount that I couldn't afford or even what my vehicle is worth. So I went to go get it from their home/shop they demanded 200.00 to get my keys back, mind you they didn't even do anything to fix nothing, all they did was look at it and quote the work. they gave me a bogus receipt, Come to find out the "auto body shop" on the receipt does not even exist! and the only reason I gave them the 200.00 is because they threatened me and all I wanted was to get my car out of there. They told me they needed money up front to order the parts so I don't know why they expected a penny from me, since they don't run a real business, if it was legit they wouldn't need to have money up front to get parts, heck come to find out they can't even afford to pay their bills and keep their phone on.

So how would I go about turning these people in?

They also went thru my vehicle and took everything of value I had in it, now I know thats a police matter. Just the whole thing was a scary deal, because these r not the type of people you want your kids or mother to hang with, I am even afraid to go into detail of why but I am scared to even do anything in fear of what they might be capable of doing.
