Sorry to hear about your troubles. I don't have any advice to give you. I just wanted to direct your attention, and that of everyone viewing this message board, to a website I put up last year about Madaan Motors.
Madaan Motors is a Thief - Home
The guy is a crook, and never seems to tire of ripping people off.
