Laurel Mtn Mustang, Scam Alert.

Let me start out by saying this. If a store seems to good to be true it probably is. I stumbled across Laurel Mtn when I started my 72 Mach restoration project about a year ago. Their store was only about 2 hours from me and they had some pretty reasonable prices. I contacted them via email and got in contact with a guy named Jason. Originally he was super helpful. They helped me gather a parts list and cut me a discount since I was paying in cash. I placed an initial order of over 8k. I picked up the majority of my parts, and they promised to ship the rest. So after about a month or two I got all of my parts and placed another order, this time for about 3k. I again went up and picked up my parts and they promised to ship what they didn't have/was backordered. Well here's where this gets bad. It took me over 7 months to receive my frame rails. I ordered them in my first 8k order. They kept delaying it and siting "shipping and manufacturing problems" when in reality they never placed the order. I had called the manufacturer directly. As of October they still owed me roughly $700 in parts and they had ceased all communication. No email, no telephone. The business had packed up shop and shut down. I've seen reports saying they've scammed people out of roughly $23,000 plus. This is a heads up that if you have ordered parts from them and are still waiting, contact the Better Business Bureau. I'm hoping to spread awareness so that everyone can hopefully get a refund or their parts. Any questions don't hesitate to ask.

If they did go under, that sucks for all involved. I've heard good things about them in the past and they seemed like a small operation trying to complete with the big guys. I hope you're made whole again and not too many people are in the same situation.
