I am glad somebody else posted something on Ali be prepared he will try to keep flagging you,I dont know how he gets away with reposting all the time. Just keep flagging him for spam he also was hard to get a hold of and when i did get a hold of him the answer was basically oh well it was working when u left. If people would call x-box and know matter what sent it in chances are they will repair it. They fixed ALI'S mess for me at no charge. He also recommended to me to purchase another brand new X-box and he would swap parts and i was to take it back(he said know one would know) totally illegal. Anyways for all you out there here is the e-mail i recieved from Ali shortly after so beware.

Another Feedback on Xbox Console Repair - $40 (Vancouver)

AND ANOTHER COMPLAINT...I have to agree with this poster. A vicitm of this scam I would recommend just sending it in to Microsoft to fix or purchasing a new one. Right now I have a beautiful xbox 360 that serves no purpose more than a paper weight thanks to Ali. Trully unfortunate. I wish I saved my money and got a newer console rather than having such a poor repair job on it.

Don't bring your xbox to this guy. His name is Ali. His phone # is 778-895-8859. He will screwed your xbox big time. I'm one of his victim. He offered no guarantee or what so ever. You can search his feedback on CL.It's too bad I'm lazy for couple of weeks to warn peoples then there are more victims. Oh, just for the record here, I don't fixed xbox 360 nor mod any xbox 360. I'm writing this to warn people. You can thanks me million times if you read this. The most expensive one to fix for you might not be as bad as you thought. Make sure you watch how they fix and the tools and method to fix it.
