On March 6th, 2018, Andrea Reed and her mother wen’t out car shopping. Andrea was searching for a vehicle that she could purchase for her son and so off the two went to Sheffield Automotive Sales located at 42383 N Ridge Rd., in Elyria, Ohio. When the two arrived on the lot, they found a vehicle that was of interest and decided to test drive it. The owner & salesman, Brian Griffith, shook Andrea’s hand, gave her the key’s and told her to have a smooth ride… That’s when everything got bumpy.
Readers Note: Brian Griffith has an extensive criminal history related to drugs, violence against women and burglaries. Scumbagged.com users have unearthed his entire criminal past and also shed light on his deep seated racism towards African Americans. This article contains audio and criminal history information + Andrea Reed’s story.
Andrea explained to Mr. Griffith that she lived off of Lake Ave. in Lorain and that “She/I simply wanted my husband to check out the car to see if it was suitable/safe.” Approximately 20 minutes had lapsed since Andrea had driven off the lot when Brian Griffith proceeded to call her numerous times. Andrea’s phone was on silent and in her purse and therefore his calls wen’t unanswered for a short period of time. When she noticed she had two missed calls from him she called him back right away and informed him that she was right down the road and on her way.
Brian Griffith at this point was irate, asking and demanding her to repeatedly explain why she didn’t pick up the phone when he called. The young woman informed him that she wasn’t out to steal his car, that she had taken it to have her husband look at it as she had mentioned. Furthermore, she had left her new 2017 pickup truck on the parking lot – which was a surefire guarantee that she would be returning. In the midst of the missed calls Mr. Griffith unknowingly left a voicemail on Andrea Reeds cellphone. The YouTube video below has the full audio of this voicemail. Be warned, it’s extremely vulgar and filled with numerous racist epithets.

“next fucking niGGer that pulls on this parking lot gets kicked out…”
“I won’t sell the god damn car, fucking nigger, their all the fucking same, sorry i’m an asshole I can’t help it, (inaudible) I’m fuckin pissed! (huh) no, they won’t answer the fuckin phone, (huh), that’s the point there getting (inaudible), next fucking nigger that pulls on this parking lot gets kicked out of here. I can’t fuckin, (inaudible).” – Brian Griffith, Sheffield Automotive Sales OWNER
Andrea Reed wen’t on to say “I”m the type that loves everyone no matter their race but not everyone shares my heart. Terrible. May GOD bless him.”
COBRA Says: Andrea you are far too kind and far too nice, but good way to take the high road. You didn’t deserve that kind of treatment, even if you did take the car for a little longer than he had planned. Nobody should talk to anybody like that, point blank, period. Don’t worry, he’ll be known forever for his racist, sadistic, sociopathic ways… What a fucking scumbag…
It should be noted that Mr. Griffith has a history of back-room racial jokes and is without a doubt a racist. He’s been to jail numerous times and has gotten hell bent on cocaine induced manic modes on many occasions (and he still dabbles, hard). Griffith is a sick and twisted individual, he’s nothing more than a racist and a con man whose best represented by Danny Davito in the movie “Matilda”. He will intentionally sell you a lemon in a heartbeat while laughing his racist ass all the way to the bank. Well, hopefully not anymore…

The Bottom Line: Brian Griffith is a racist, it’s cut and dry there. He attempts to fluff himself up by spewing racial epithets in an effort to make himself feel like he’s something or someone special. In all reality Mr. Griffith is nothing more than an old lonely man whose stuck utilizing Backpage (which he refers to as “dating sites”), living in a decrepit apartment, going broke, growing old and all alone, just him and his dog and a few junk cars.
SCUMBAGGED Tip: Avoid Sheffield Automotive Sales at all costs. A total #boycott should ensue this location and this individual. Anywhere that Mr. Griffith goes, any business that he creates, Scumbagged will be there waiting. Mr. Griffith, when you read this – perhaps you should truly take note of the things you’ve said and your mentality. Also try growing some hair (rogain perhaps?) – lose the skinhead/neo-nazi look – it’s 2018 and time to grow up already.
