    Stay Away from Brian Wolff (http://www.toysforreallybigboys.com/)

    I was scammed out of more then $1500 from Brian.

    I spoke to him on the phone / emailed him for about 6 months prior to giving him work. I even did a few favours for him to help him keep his name clear when others complained about being cheated by him. He still took advantage of me nevertheless.

    His background in theatre allows him to manipulate people better then most. If you've ever had actors as close friends you'd know what I mean regarding there ability to fool.

    I feel he lied to me numerous times - for example, he was working on a "friends" property when I dealt with him, and there was a fiero located there. He told me he could take any parts he needed off the fiero, including a windshield (because he broke mine and refused to pay for its replacement). When I spoke to the owner of the property, I was informed the car was in fact his son's, and he was unaware brian was taking parts from it. As you may have guessed, his son was pretty pissed.

    I've yet to personally hear or see one good thing about an experience with Brian or his work. I know one person who saw his diablo body up close, and he told me it was unbuildable.

    Based on the little work he attempted to do on my kit car, I'd have to agree - he set me back in my build process rather then put me forward... I had to redo all his welds, unbolt anything he bolted down, grind fiberglass away from numerous pieces, etc... He never met a deadline, he lied to me numerous times, made up excuses why the work wasn't done. We had a contract, he broke it.

    I recieved an email from some time ago from Brian regarding his reputation and attempts to rebuild his business and cutomer loyalty. So after reading this I emailed him back. Hopefully I can help.

    Brian ... if you read this..make do on the words you emailed me and prove your worth being trusted.

    Ari, hmmm ill research more about small claims court, my programs were more toward the criminal code and provincial offences side but I thoguht you could give it to a police officer and they could go deliver it.

    Here is the response i got from Brian when I asked him to make things right with Ari:

    Brian Wolff wrote:

    > Hey there,
    >
    > Yes, I am doing everything to clear things up, I've already paid back one guy and supplied two others with kits... at a reduced price. However, as far as Ari is concerned, I don't owe him a penny. He pulled the job before it was finished and then demanded his money back. Sorry it doesn't work that way and it never has. That's why it's called a deposit.
    >
    > You see the problem with Ari is he bought a really bad twisted kit off another fellow. He knew it was twisted but he was under 18 at the time so he used that to blackmail the guy into providing all kinds of extras. So having succeeded one time, he thinks he can do it again. Do you understand the words, "Blow me slowly!" I'm too old for blackmail. However, he is right I do owe him a windshield so when you hear from the little faggot again, tell him he'll find it on his front lawn some time this summer. In the meantime, he can write all the nasty emails he wants, go on as many forums, get as many lawyers... The bottom line is he pulled the car. End of story! I ain't his daddy and I don't owe him a thing...

    Based on his reply... I replied:

    Ultimately Brian ... with an attitude like yours... I don't think we'll ever discuss business...
    I am not comfortable with the way you view things... lets just say we agree to disagree.

    Good luck

    I'm not going to bother replying to such outrageous slander, I think that message is sufficient proof of his integrity. When a business commonly refers to almost all of their previous clients as "Fags", "Drunks", and "Liars", you have to wonder who the true liars are.

    There is a saying in the psychiatry world that if you diagnosis every patient with the same illness, it may not be the patients who are sick.

    If you thought that was funny....


    Quoting Brian wolf's latest email:

    Hey there,

    I care about people who are honest... With those people I do business. My whole life is built on honesty and integrity. That's why I've trying my damndest to fix what happened last year. Trust me, I could have just declared bankruptcy and walked away... But I haven't. In fact, by the end of April I will have paid off 75 percent of all the people I owe.

    People, like Ari, however, who want something for nothing... I try and avoid like the plague. Every once and a while, some little jerk-off like him tags me. That's life. But just because they whine, lie and complain to basically get something they don't deserve does that mean I have to cave in? Sorry, you don't stand up to guys like that and everybody loses.

    You don't like my attitude... Shop somewhere else. There's a reason, I'm back in business. It's called "Integrity!" When people found out what happened to me, they came to bail me out. I've been given a shop, equipment, seed money and customers. If you got yourself in as deep shit as I did last year, would anyone come to bail you out if you got yourself in trouble? So before you cirticisize me, and shooting off your mouth, find out what you're talking about. Talk at you later.



    Now that was funny!! Integrity!! Honesty!!! Those words actually mean something other than a last ditch effort to redeem yourself....

    here was my reply:

    Actually Brian my opinion has nothing to do with Ari's comments but more yours.
    To quote you :
    Do you understand the words, "Blow me slowly!"
    and " so when you hear from the little faggot again, tell him he'll find it on his front lawn some time this summer."


    Some how this isn't the type of attitude or view that I feel comfortable doing business with.
    I never insulted you or accused you of anything. I simply said we agree to disagree.

    " If you got yourself in as deep shit as I did last year, would anyone come to bail you out if you got yourself in trouble?"
    I personally would never let it happen


    "You don't like my attitude... Shop somewhere else."

    Remeber after numerous months of running and hiding as you admitted, you emailed me with your life story and pictures of the cars you are making. You offered me your product and asked me about doing business. I didn't come to you, You came to me and I am simply making a choice.
    All the best and good luck
