So many names from the past.  I recall when MiniGuy was fairly new but established, and had a good name.  Unfortunate that his reputation went south.  I still see some nefarious names in the Mini business still around, though...

Dr Mini..lets Not  forget Spencer Raynor from S Georgia.. did runner as  did Simon Epson at Broadspeed in the UK.. and what was that other guy in the UK.. that took 100s of deposit and also did a runner??Oh yea. Geoff Hodge.. BP was known as the King of missing deposits. as he did it Twice..once in mid 90s and then again about 10 years later..I knew Bobby Pack stole 53 deposits of $20k each for Vtec  conversions as Go Fast Mini in  North GA. and Fulton Co DA finally charged with with Theft by taking and he got Ten years.. Note all these con men were curbers.. Non Lic dealer.. as was Michael Lewis since 2006.. can you imagine the fines for that   in LA from California DMV enforcement  ? Back taxes..?/ tax evasion ??

Probably the main concern is that when folks in the Mini community that sell Minis suddenly drop out of sight they typically run off with someone's money or their Mini. In the past we've seen Bobby Pack, Mark Nolan, and others do a runner and left somebody high and dry. Surely someone has seen him?
