Two guys driving a truck near lowes and walmart area on lee hwy to look for cars with dent and paint scratches, they claims other auto body shop would have replaced the whole bumper and charge $600 and they claims it is rip-off and they can just sand off the rust and paint the car for $400 and lesser cost. I watched them carefully, they used acetone to clean the old paint coat and use aerosol paint to cover up, they never did any sanding to remove the rust. But they claimed they did it and they told the lie. I watched them very carefully. However I paid them and watched Youtube how professional paint the car, they must use 500 grit sand paper to sand the rust until you see the metal. I texted the guy immediately and asked him to redo the job. He jerked around and said he would come back two days later. I asked him to show his driver license when he came back and he replied let us talk tomorrow, and he never showed up again. He is scam. I had his picture taken and his phone number on the truck. Be aware these two guys. They are two guys wearing grey color Shirt on right and one with hood.

NOTE to OP: NEVER hire ANYONE who drives up to you or bangs on your door & offers to do cheap body work. IT's usually Gypsies & they're nothing but ripoff artists. Even if they're not Gypsies, DON'T do business with them.

Tell them you're not interested and tell them to GO AWAY!

If you want bodywork done, go to a legitimate shop or somebody you know.

There are mobile auto repair operations and shadetree mechanics who do decent quality work, but if you can't vet them you are taking a huge chance.

I spent all of my money buying speakers and leather jackets from the guy in the white Ford Van.
