Vet involved in car crash says repair shop is giving him runaround

CHANDLER - “This is my baby right here,” JC Mosely said.

JC Mosely is a car guy.

He's also an Army veteran having served three tours in Iraq.

“It was a good experience for me,” he said. “I like to feel like I'm helping.”

During a trip home from Iraq in 2009, JC was involved in a car accident.

“Somebody ran a stop light,” he said.

To get his Infinity G-35 fixed, he took his car to a Tempe repair shop called 350Z Motorsports.

“I heard that was the place to go for Infinity G-35's,” JC said.

His insurance company cut 350Z Motorsports a check for $3,500 for repairs.

“Told me it would take nine days to complete,” JC said.

But a month-and-a-half later, JC says the shop hadn't done any work so he decided to take his car somewhere else.

When he asked 350Z Motorsports for the $3,500 back, the owner kept stringing him along.

More than a year later, JC called 3 On Your Side for help.

“I would definitely like you guys to assist me with getting my money back,” he said.

3 On Your side contacted owner Richard Spohr, seen in YouTube video promoting his repair shop and a so-called modeling company.

When we didn't hear back, we went to 350Z Motorsports to see what was going on with this soldier's money.

Spohr later sent us a lengthy email stating that he did provide wheels and tires.

As for the remaining insurance money, he told us he would cut a check, but that never happened.

“Pretty disappointing,” JC said. “Iit was a learning experience for me, I guess.”

Just two months out of the Army, JC is trying to rebuild his life here at home.

It hasn't been easy, especially since he wound up paying $4,500 out of pocket to get his car fixed somewhere else.
