Markings Left On Car During Oil Change Bedevil Fort Worth Woman

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - A woman took her car in for service in Fort Worth but was shocked to find what can only be described as Satanic symbols.

"It's not something you go to get an oil change and you leave with that on your car," she said.

Jessica, a 25-year-old bakery manager who wants to shield her identity, is proud of her 2002 Mustang.  She bought it herself.  So, she was shocked to find out someone had left marks on it, including the "Mark of the Beast."

"I was pretty upset about it," she said.

To see it for ourselves, we had to take it to an independent garage and put it on a lift, where we saw it: 666, an upside down cross and a pentagram written in light blue sealant underneath her car.


"Who does that? Being the Satanic symbols, it puts a bad omen. I mean, what if it's a curse?" she wondered.

A kind Walmart service tech on Clifford Street in Fort Worth told her about it when she was getting her oil changed.

"He seemed pretty upset about it. And he's, like, 'Well, the previous technician wrote something on your car,'" she said.

Jessica said the service tech told her the color of the sealant was the color Walmart always uses.

He took a picture and made note of it on her receipt:


Jessica had previously taken her car in for an oil change at a Fort Worth Walmart on Oakmont.

She remembers the person who changed her oil.  "He had an attitude. Very sassy. By the time it was all said and done, I spent about three hours at that Walmart just for an oil change," she said.

She wrote Walmart to complain.  "I didn't get so much as an apology or we'd taken care of this or we addressed the fact. Nothing," she said.

"Just kind of puts a bad vibe on it," she said.

In a statement to CBS 11, Walmart said:  "We've looked into the matter. And although we've been unable to confirm the details, we never want our customers to have an unpleasant experience. And we've reached out to the customer and will
continue to resolve the issue."

Jessica said Walmart offered to scrape the symbols off but hasn't offered anything else for her troubles.

"I believe in God. It's just so disrespectful and ridiculous to deface somebody's property with those kinds of beliefs," she said.

Jessica, a loyal Walmart customer, says she'll still take her Mustang to Walmart but a routine oil change will never look the same.

Jessica says while she's waiting to see if Walmart compensates her for her trouble, she's going to have them scrape the Satanic symbols from her car.
