I dropped off a car car to get work performed almost 2 years ago, I gave the owner/mechanic $2000 as required deposit to start work on the car right away. However car just sat in a corner never being worked on, because of almost 2 years of neglect, the car's condition deteriorated greatly, and I was tired of waiting and decided to pick up the car with no worked having been performed the entire time it was there. Then owner said he couldn't refund me my money at the time due to his "computer needing to be repaired" (yeah right) this was weeks ago, on top of that he still has in possession of two very important and expensive parts, every time I've asked about meeting up to get my money and parts back he has some excuse and he's hardly ever at his own place of business. I'm tired of going around in circles with this guy, I have a repair order and an invoice for the work that was supposed to be performed and the deposit I gave him as well as tons of text messages between me and him showing giving me excuse after excuse for work not being performed or me not getting my money back. What can I do to get my parts and money back, and is it possible to get some sort of restitution for blatant neglect of the car?
