Report Filed: JERRY P PIECHOWIAK NEMESIS AUTO LLC CRAIG’S LIST AUTO SELLER SCAM VALLEY PARK, Missouri!!
ON JUNE 4, 2012 I RESPONDED TO A CRAIGLIST.COM ad for a 1999 Mercedes E320. I spoke to Jerry by his cell phone 847 757-9209 and we met at a CHASE Bank Branch in Lombard, Illinois where I paid him for teh full price of the vehicle. On the craigslist.com site he advsrtised as a private party but in the course of the payment transaction, he wrote a BILL OF SALE from Nemesis Auto LLC which surprised me and at the same time promised to send the title to me. He also gave me a 30day TEMPORARY sticker to display until I had received the title. I took posession of the vehicle and waiteed for 2 weeks and then I phoned him to tell him I had received no title. He blamed a secretary for not acting on it. i WAITED AGAIN ANDD AFTER 30DAYS WERE UP, i CALLED BUT COULD NEVER REACH HIM AFTER MANY ATTEMPTS TO CALL. I continued waiting until finally, I had to a problem arise when I lost the only key he had given me. Mercedes Benz would not issue a duplicate key without proof of ownership, a Title. In my dilemma, pleade with the MB dealer and MB USA and MB germany but to no avail. I then phoned Missouri Dept of Revenue which handle motor vehicle transaction and they said they found a Notice of SAle filed. So far with all the bureaucratic complications I have not received a copy. My next step is to have the state where the title is to be issued decalre me the ownber, another complication! I have not been able to drive my car since August 18, 2012 when Ilost the key. It is now November 12, 2012 with no end to the matter in sight.
