Job 1 - To install 3 aftermarket bumper and components on the front. Job 2 - To install aftermarket rear bumper. Job 1 - Out of the 3 components (bumper, front valence panel, upper bumper cover) to be installed he actually only installed 1. the bumper. The other he just polished and replaced the original parts that were on the truck originally. In his final bill to me he padded up charges to match his estimate Job 2 - He wanted an extra 50.00 from me for paint when he had already included it in the estimate.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response
Ripper's Body Shop, Inc. conducted two separate repairs agreed to and authorized by the Plaintiff. The three items he mentions on our original estimate #**** was written with Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts; this was not paid for nor authorized by Plaintiff or Nationwide Insurance. Customer #**** was converted to match the insurance company's estimate that only related to the front of the vehicle. The Plaintiff signed agreeing to aftermarket parts that NationWide listed on claim #XXXXXX. The lower valance on the insurance estimate was not replaced per customer instructions and was credited back to him that he applied to additional work to the rear bumper which is job #2 (#4792) this was a non related item to the Nationwide loss. Plaintiff signed authorization for the credit for the lower valance totaling $102.36 ($95.00+$7.36 tax), this credit was applied to the second repair (rear bumper) #4792. A $200.00 deposit was received leaving a balance of $175.50 for the rear bumper.

Consumer's Final Response
You cannot charge for items that were not installed. period. What Ripper's Body Shop did was fraud. Gave me an estimate to install 3 items on my truck. Installed 1 item, cleaned up the other two and put them back on my truck. He then jacked up his final bill to maximize his profits. Total fraud. What I am demanding is that he return 455.00 to me Attached is the BAR letter and a copy of the cashed check written to and cashed by the plaintiff.

Business' Final Response
Ripper's Body Shop, Inc. has been in business in the same location for 20 plus years with no complaints. As we previously stated in our response, Rippers Body Shop, Inc. has completed everthing that was authorized for by paintiff to his satisfaction. There are no complaints on workmanship or craftsmanship. His complaints that Ripper's did not put items on his vehicle but charged for are incorrect. Unfortunately, the plaintiff signed and autorized everything now suddenly has chosen not to understand the bill. The plaintiff is unreasonable, verbally abusive and was instructed by West Sacramento Police department to vacate the premisis and not return. Ripper's body shop has no intention on negotiationg with this individual.
