i think they did that to a few patricks....

not to mention use the money for the car parts to try and go drifting....

a xcouple months after the whole thing went down, i met with mike at some fancy little coffe shop so he could tell me he knew he owed me money and would get it to me... and that he really appreciated all the support and a bunch of other bs...

then came the squid and i knew i would never see a dime...

I'm not going to close or move this thread. And if it gets out of hand, I'll pull posts but this thread should stay open as a reminder.

Why can't the BBB stop rip-offs and scams?

Many times, BBBs do. Although we do not have legal and policing powers, we provide information about marketplace fraud through scam reports to the public, media releases and alerts.

BBBs work closely with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, providing them with valuable information on potentially fraudulent activities. Many times we are the first organization to know about a developing scam and alert authorities and the public. When a scam develops in one part of the country, the news travels quickly between BBBs in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico that in turn alert the public in their communities.

The public can help to stop rip-offs and scams by contacting us before they do business with an unknown company and by notifying us of a potential scam. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.



basically theyre what we call "flash light cops" I see you
