Steven Mitchell, Ace Mobile Auto Body & Repair, (678.640.1602 & 404.910.6122) is a scam artist. He has ripped off consumers in Atlanta area for over 4 years in automotive & roofing. He uses Craigslist, and referrals. His wife, Ana/Annie, works with him.
I paid him $600 to repair dents, scratches, paint vehicle, and order parts. The first day he got a couple of dents out, and stated he needed to get additional parts. He returned the following day to complete work. He stated the car needed to dry for 48 hours and he'd return to clean up, and another part he ordered should be in by that time. He went on & on about how much money he saved me. I then paid him, believing he just needed to clean up & snap a part on. He'll say he accepts checks. Then he'll call stating he's at the bank and the bank won't cash the check due to some lie he'll make up, like, "a number was written over twice & this is good, to protect you." That's part of his game to return for cash & not leave a paper trail. He also acts like a good Christian. Stating he preaches on 1010 am radio weekend mornings. What a crook!
I never heard from him again, nor has he returned any of my phone calls. I went to a car wash & detail. It took them over 2 hours to clean the car & cost me $30. That's when I saw the messy paint job. It doesn’t even match the original paint. They spent 45 minutes removing masking tape off headlights. Also took the car to two paint experts. They stated he used non-matching aerosol. It's going to cost me $400 to clean up his whack paint job. Plus, $100 for the part I never got.
After two weeks of leaving him voice messages, he or his wife sent me nasty text messages to “kiss” their “ass,” that I “didn’t pay” him, and that I “wrote him a bad check and the bank will say so too.” I’ve never come across such a low-life rotten piece of crap!
After researching, I found other reviews on wen2k and atlantacitysearch. Just google his name & phoney business. I am attempting to band together with other consumers he's ripped off to file criminal & civil suit. Post here or on Craigslist under Ace Auto Body & Repair.
