good for you thats what I like to hear someone getting the better of a con man

least you sorted it and it only cost your time have you thought about reporting them?

My John repairs and services lawnmowers.

Recently we have been getting a lot of enquiries from mid Cornwall (about 20 miles away).

One gentleman told us that his ride-on mower was away (for 2 months) for a repair and a service and came back still not right.  john had a look at it, listened to it....sent the guy away for a coffee to wadebridge and fixed came back machine purring away beautifully, demo cut of our grass.  happy man.  John charged him 15 - an hour of my time, no parts he said.

Man then told us a certain company had charged him 600 for the same thing.

When he left John told me that the part concerned would have cost about a fiver.

So we have another new customer.
