    • MWDesign scammed out of $30k by Dime Racing - Another Dime nightmare

      Is anyone keeping score of how many people have been scammed or stolen from by Dime Racing up to this point? BoostAddict is doing its best but admittedly there are so many horror stories to sort through it is tough to keep track.


      The latest victim to come forward is Meister Werke Design + Technik or MWDesigntechnik.

      What happened? They ordered a very expensive Super Trofeo Race aerodynamic kit for their Huracan for roughly $30k. They were strung along and never received the kit. The money was taken of course.

      This comes in the wake of Dime being sued by multiple parties, Brian McLevis' Huracan horror story, ripping off Deeds Racing, oh and the Vehicle Virgins Huracan horror story.

      These guys sure love taking advantage of Huracan owners, eh? Easy targets with money so it makes sense from the scammer perspective.

      If only someone had warned people? Oh, that's right, BoostAddict did.

      It's a shame to read that yet another person was taken advantage of:

      We have been customizing cars since the early 2000s and have many good friends in the business that we regularly work with.

      In June of 2017 we ordered a Huracan Super Trofeo aero kit from Dime Racing via Steve Atneyel.

      We had our wheel partners @brixtonforged measure out the custom wheels at Dimes facility at 5542 Research Drive in Huntington Beach (which no longer exists due to them being sued for defaulting on rent)

      We sent payment after the cars were confirmed and an agreement was signed before any of these bad reviews and drama started coming out. Communication was good, then became spotty immediately after funds were received.

      This was before the @vehiclevirgins@vehiclevirgins_ blowout with their subpar turbo kit and the issues with @biigbrianand a faulty turbo kit as well

      We hate to air out this type of news in public but it needs to be known.
      Last week Steve told me to fly to California from Vancouver Canada to pick up the ST aerokit. All was well on the phone, ticket was booked and I flew.

      Upon landing, magically the trailer stored at alleged location 17111 Sierra Highway Santa Clarita “cannot be accessed” leaving me with a wasted trip to California.

      I offered my address twice to meet up with Steve and he agreed, but went dark and did not show up for either face to face meeting.

      He has now gone radio silent.

      Good thing my Lambo friends @mr.mattz@plastique999 and more took me around
      End of story,

      Dime Racing @dimeracing are fraudulent scammers

      @dimesteve Steven Sargon Atneyel and his partner Rod SHEGEM are fraudulent scammers that take money and do not deliver parts

      Let’s get this out to everyone in the car community

        The Rod Shegem guy is threatening me for posting this and saying I 'made it up' somehow. Um, I'm not the one who made the post.

        How this guy isn't in jail is insane. I'm amazed the people with the big bucks he scammed haven't dealt with this in their own way but I guess they're waiting for the legal wheels to churn.

        The site I assume he's talking about is http://rod-shegem.com made by someone he scammed that is filled with various court documents.

        How someone like this escapes jail time in this country I have no clue.

        Hahaha you cracked me up. Seriously how the heck those businesses are still running and how come people are still fooled by those scammers at a time when it is easy to gather such horrific stories about any business by basically googling it.

        These guy aren't regular scammers. We're talking millions of dollars and money laundering overseas.

        This is the kind of stuff that usually ends with an FBI raid. The ATF was already involved once.

        He's at it again: https://www.instagram.com/scammerrodshuqom/

        New company is wulfexport.com

        He's calling himself Vlad now. All the pictures on that site you can find on Google image searches elsewhere.

        Basically, the idea is to get someone to pay to export a car and then take/launder the money.
