Angry Bill Rhoades (BEAR) whereabouts?

Does anyone know what happened to Bill Rhoades (Bill's European Automotive Repair)? He is/was a Land Rover mechanic in Santa Fe, NM. Long story short, he took my money and ran...apparently he is "official closed for business." Any leads on his whereabouts would be appreciated.

Contact in Santa Fe just told me that Bill's shop is empty.

If you paid by Credit Card, you can get the money back call and dispute the charge.

Dumb, trusting me gave Bill a check through a friend in Santa Fe. I have known Bill since 1999 and trusted him as I received nothing but genuine, honest transactions in the past. Surprised he bailed on me (and others perhaps)...thought he was a better man than he turned out to be. Anybody else in the Land Rover community get hosed by him?

Tough times can do surprising things to good people. I guess if it's between eating and being dishonest, most folks would eat.

A person that follows that mantra and migrates to such a weak personal constitution of dishonestly should be bitch-slapped. Tough times do not make a honest man dishonest...tough times makes a dishonest man more dishonest.

No one has seen a sign of Bill? I guess he went Shawshank and headed across the border? Some things are best left unsaid.
