KOB had the website posted in the original story. This scam is run by Mike Holley. You will NOT find any good deals. Take a look a this fee structure. He's charging on average 500$ a car to purchase in fees. Maybe KOB could do there homework once in a while and report the FACTS behind some of these clowns.

This post is correct. Mike Holley was the dude who claimed to be a fire fighter/paramedic and scammed the public on the 9/11 attacks. He fabricates almost everything he says. Save your time & money and steer clear of this fraud.

EVERYTHING that comes from Mike Holley's mouth is a lie. The previous posts are true. I wonder why KOB took the original story down...Mike probably has a girlfriend working in their office...

MIKE HOLLEY IS A CON ARTIST. Anyone who has had the misfortune of doing any kind of business with him will back my statements up. He lies about EVERYTHING. And he did and still does cliam to be a firefighter, a member of ABQ's SWAT, and totally misrepresented himself in the 9/11 attacks. KOB you should be ashamed for giving this guy any kind of publicity, and even more ashamed for taking down the origianl story and it's comments.

This should be filed under 'advertising' for KOB.

But nooooo! Did he give KOB a few cars to advertise for him?

What a crock of caca.

Mike holley and duke city auction is a bs business. Customers are charged buyer fees and dealers are charged dealer fees. Lot of these cars are crap. Dealers hide the problems with these cars and you don't know what you are buying. The red,yellow and green light buys are bs. Mike scams his workers and dont pay them minium wage. He tells he's employees that they are independent contractors. Just beware before you buy a car, the cars have reserves so you won't find good deals. What's not sold at dealers lot will be sold at the auction. How can you have a auction when cars have reserve price? Might as well just put a sell price On it. Very rude staff.

Every dealer auction in the country is run with reserve pricing. If you can't deal with big boy dealer rules maybe you shouldn't go. You should consider yourself lucky if Mike let's a cry baby like you back in.
