Catch body shop scams before you pay

Posted: Updated:
(WMC-TV) - New reports show shopping for bargain car repairs can cost you twice as much.

According to the consumer alert, body shop fraud is not as uncommon as you would think.

Scam victim, Ronald Knowles, said "You got holes and bubbles and dents, oh this is just a terrible job. and no paint whatsoever, just primer, bondo and primer."

Of course if a job is done poorly enough, then you have to pay to get it fixed.

The lesson is... know the name of the business you're dealing with and check them out before using them. Making sure to review the groups before using on organizations like the Better Business Bureau is always a smart option.
