Vet involved in car crash says repair shop is giving him runaroundPosted: Updated:
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.
