Default DON'T USE KIFOPAINT - The guy is a joker!!

A warning to anyone thinking of using KIFOPAINT for spraying up a shell..........DONT!!!

You have robbed over 50 quid off me! I'm 75 quid down with the cost of the new shell!

Thanks for ignoring me for 72 days. Your a joke, a complete joke. Thanks for taking over 50 quid of my money. Cheers dude!!

You might be better off finding out if there is anything wrong too, before assuming the man stole from you....

How can he find out if there is anything wrong if no contact for 72 days .

Admittedly kifo had done plenty of shells for me in the past and apart from workload as he is busy everything is spot on.

Maybe this post will highlight what the problem is .

Default Kifo

No but there are plenty of people on here or used to be on here who got stung by him in the past. I'm pretty sure he did the same thing a number of years ago and put it down to moving house (but disappeared off the radar) and probably still owes money. He is great at what he does but puts pro drivers ahead of his bread and butter sales.
Good luck with a claim against him or tracking him down. I think he is on Facebook if that helps. (His real name is Keith Newton if that helps).

I've tried every single way to make contact with him. The guy is a joker and a liar. NOBODY SHOULD SEND HIM ANY MONEY.

Ok an update. A very slight update with a broken promise. Reading some of the posts you guys have written is interesting, it sounds like he's a prolific time waster.

After waiting over 70 days to get a reply from Kifo I was left with no option other than to shame him on facebook. Luckly a few of his friends commented on my post, one of them tagged him in the post (he has since removed his name tag). That night Kifo messaged me saying he was sorry and he has changed Jobs (I smell bullshit) and that he was doing me shell and finishing it last weekend (3rd/4th september). He said I would have it last week.......Well what a fu**ing surprise, no shell, nothing. Just a broken promise!!! So in total I've waited around 90 days. It's a joke, the guy is a joke!

Like I say I sent my shell off to him the middle of June and he has IGNORED EVERY SINGLE MESSAGE I have sent since the beginning of July. The thing is I have had a few messages from people saying that they have sent shells off to him in the last few weeks and even paid him for them and that they have spoken to him.

There needs to be a warning about Kifo Paint on this forum. He is ripping people off and not supplying the goods. He is a liar and a con man!

DON'T EVER EVER GET KIFO PAINT TO SPRAY A SHELL. HE'S A WASTEMAN!!

I'm almost 80 quid out of pocket!

If you sent him a shell you have his address, you know how to find him, rock up to his door and get your money back

I do have his address but unfortunately its a 560 mile round trip from my house. I have thought of doing this but it would cost me double the shell price in petrol.

He's just a con man who takes peoples money and doesn't supply any goods. A waste man of the highest level.

If he's a long way away so a visit is not practical then use the small claims court to sue him. The cost of issuing the summons is added to the debt and if you win you will get paid.

I will look into this cheers. It hardly seems worth going to the trouble but it might be an option, i have everything to back up a case to chase the money.

Whats really pis**d me off is him ignoring me for weeks and weeks but still taking orders/shells and money from other people. And the fact he finally made contact last week saying i would have my shell last week but again, nothing at all.

I think it is extremely wrong to be selective like this and people need to be warned about the way he goes about his business, especially if he is making people pay for their shell's before they have even seen the finished design.

I have since learnt that most other sprayers will spray the shell first then ask for payment.

I have no idea why he has posted that? I have messaged him and he say's he is a chap from Ireland? It's not Kifo so have no idea why/who that's aimed at?
