Car salesman takes money

Chris Frolich from Frolich Motors showed us a car which we wanted to buy and he then asked for a deposit to help us get a better repayment. We paid him 30 000 and just never took delivery of the car. He made lots of excuses like he had taken the car in to be fixed and another excuse was that now no one wanted to trade our car in and then we said we wanted our deposit back. Again he promises to pay and to date we still don't have it. I was searching for his name online and found someone else who has had a problem and now we want to report him as a scam

    I was searching for Chris Frolich online and came across this thread. He facilitated the sale of an Audi, which I have. However, through the lies and bull I haven't received any registration documents for more than 3 months. I am concerned. Does anybody have a clue on the whereabouts of Chris?

    I am still looking for how to get legal case started from overseas. I have contacted the business he claims to have sold one of my cars to warn them of their risks and reputation. Suggest any business he has referred to in his dealings should be contacted and advised of his repeated illegal behaviour. If these are found to be true then we should name the comapnies here.

    My ex wife sold him a 1979 Mercedes. He gave her part payment. Took the car and papers and made a whole lot of promises to pay. Never answers his phone or returns calls. This is a real low life who needs to be stopped. Don't know how he sleeps at night. I can see by this blog he never intended to pay.

    He now has victim no..... who knows how many . We currently have a situation with Mr Frolich . Took delivery of a Landrover Discovery ... Luckily that went through a dealership and we have the papers . We traded in a BMW ( which is still financed ) He has had the BMW for 4 months . We have been paying instalments as he has not settled the vehicle . Also gave us every story under the sun . We found out he has sold the BMW 2 months ago .... We are currently going the legal route .

    I have a judgement granted against Chris Frolich dated 17 May 2011 for an amount of R 240 000 for the sale of my BMW. Todate not a single cents has been paid towards it. I have incurred additional R 10 000 in lawyers fees and tracing agents. The law is just not fair!!

    Hi John Harris Please contact me on 0834576597 so that we can formalize your case with the SAPS. They are currently finalizing the investigation into the Frolich saga. Regards Chris O'Neill

  • Username4452 29 Oct 2014, 08:01 AM

    Hi Unfortunately he is a wanted man by many many people. He owes us the 30 000 from last year, but he also owes the guy he "stole" the car from R190 000 - there are currently lawyers and police involved. He changes his number and his address. I have forwarded your mail onto the guy that lost the car ad R190 000 last year, his name is Chris O'Neill - he may contact you for your statement to make the case stronger etc.... Sorry this happened to you - spread the word far and wide so no one else gets caught...

    I am having similar probles. Waiting 2 months for payment of over 250,000 Rand. I only have a personal email address. Does someone have a business address so legal action can be started?

  • Bjorern Pietruschka 1 Aug 2014, 12:34 PM

    Update The Matter has been resolved and I received all documents after a while of waiting. I seem not to be able to remove the former comment so: The Problem has been solved and all is fine Regards Bjoern

  • Username4452 7 Jul 2014, 09:47 AM

    Chris Frolich, you should have thought about the embarrassment to your son who has the same name before you started stealing from people. You sold us a car that was already sold, took our deposit and a year later we still don't have it back. And you haven't paid the original owner for that vehicle. So you are a thief and these claims are 100% true. This was put on this site to warn other innocent, hard working families not to buy a car from you...

  • Chris O'Neill 6 Jul 2014, 05:18 PM

    Chris Frolich, The above comments are not derogatory and are the absolute truth. You know very well that you have defrauded people for years, and if you feel so strongly about it then why don't you get your attorney Harold Shapiro to contact me. We have proceeded with the case of car theft and fraud and it is only a matter of time before you end up in jail. We will not stop until this happens. Furthermore, if you feel so strongly about it then why do you already have a criminal record for the very same fraudulent activity of the past. My recommendation to you is for you to surrender yourself to the South African Police. They are currently searching for you and it is only a matter of time before you are arrested. Also get yourself some professional help. I think you are in big trouble. You are on your way to jail and society will have one less thief. Chris O'Neill

  • Christoffer Frolich 29 May 2014, 09:29 AM

    Dear Sir/Madam, These comments are totally derogatory and need to be removed from your site asap. Both Louise Patterson and Bjorn Pietrushka matters have been resolved. My attorney Harold Shapiro is handling the other matter. I have sent a comment to Google as well to have removed. Please have this removed soonest as it is embaressing particularly for my son who bares the same name ( Chris Frolich ) Regards, Chris Frolich

  • Username4452 30 Oct 2013, 12:09 PM

    Hi Bjoern. You probably find that he hasn't paid the person who sold the car therefore no papers. He seems to do this all the time. There will be someone hunting him down for payment on the car you bought I'm sure. There are a group of us trying to take him to court and then to jail.... if you want to get in contact with any of them just email me and I'll put you in contact with them. info at sliced (obviously replace the word at with the @ sign and remove spaces).

  • Bjorern Pietruschka 30 Oct 2013, 11:49 AM

    Hi I bought a car from him 2 months ago. I paid, got a sales contract, but till today i didnt get the original papers, just copies. I cant reach him via cell anymore and no reaction to emails. I got the car, but I need the proper original papers.

  • Louise Patterson 8 Oct 2013, 08:41 AM

    I have had the same problem with Chris Frolich and what makes it worse is that my sons and husband know him from the beach as a friend whom we trusted!!! I paid him R8,900 as a deposit on a Caddy that was tested and found not to be any good and then he promised to refund me the deposit, that was in August. I believe he already has a suspended sentence....I hope the law catches up with him soon as I am sick of his lies. He even said his brother had had a sudden heart attack!!!!! imagine using your family in your lies, thats so disgusting! I believe in kharma and it will get him eventually, but I still need my money back.
