Scam Description

On 8/11/22 I had a flat tire when woke up to one, I had to get to work. So I started making phone calls to get the tire fixed plugged etc. so I came across this website in goggle. I called the number in the website and rang rang and it went into another number which is the one above. I spoke to a gentleman and told him my issue and he was going to send someone to fix it. I asked him how much and he said anywhere from 59.99-129.99 and of course for a plug he charged me 129.99. The last price. I have pictures and didn’t give me a receipt. The receipt was when I sent it to cash app. The 129.99 desperate measures o believe. Scammed me 129.99 and I was in a desperate situation because I had to get to work. This is even better, I came out of work ending my shift the same day and my car had a flat again. Whatever job he did was incorrect now am mad. I called the same person back and told him everything and he said he was going to send someone out to help me. Comes an hour later and said the person was doing the same job and couldn’t make it. I called my cousin who lives 5 minutes away and he came and put the spare on for me till I get home. It was a nightmare that day. I was frustrated but maintained my sanity and realized I was scammed. I went back and forth with this guy and told him a horrible job they did. He even left a voice message on text which I have. I believe he blocked me and just want people to be aware. Eventually my tire was fixed the next day and thank goodness still had warranty on our tire in Walmart. But 129.99 we sweat for and nothing is free and especially with inflation arising. Sad ??
