Awesome about getting it on the news. I am sure this will bring you prompt attention to the matter.
Now, you just need to get it so we can see it.

Just a quick update:

I had my interview with the reporter last night. It went well. There'* a few things I forgot to mention that I think would have damaged the guy more, but the reporter will be confronting the guy without notice and asking him about the miles, the many items found in the car, etc. I can't WAIT too see this guy'* reaction! I just hope he does not reimburse me before the reporter gets to confront him! Given his history, I doubt he will, but it would stink to get reimbursed before I get his dealership on the news.

It should be on the air next week. I'll let you know when, especially those in CT!! NBC 30.

PETE! Tell the dealership you were promised a follow-up interview 30 days later. To see if you've been compensated.

He may come clean instead of having it air again with no resolution.

The main reason I'm doing this now is to **** him off and damage his rep and customer base. I could care less about a set of floormats and ventshades if I do some damage.

I do want and need my ignition key back though, ESPECIALLY after this is aired. He knows my address and could steal it (only if he was a complete idiot). lol

Glad to hear that the interview went well. Can't wait to hear what hapens next. This is better than a soap opera. (Not that I haver ever watched one)
I certainly understand that this has become more of an issue of the principle than the actual compemnsation. GO get him.
Andkeep us posted!!

This is excellent news. It'* just a shame i can't see it live on TV seeing as i'm in georgia now.So when you get a chance toss up a link.

Although this may not have been your prefered way of hadling this i'm happy to see Something happen instead of nothing. He should be taught a lesson....Without potatoes of course.
