Lets see what Terry sees today. I've never seen this place - I don't go to N. Ft. Myers as it is generally a very dangerous area with loads of crime to say the least. On the news every day.

I'll see if I can find his address and post back...

Chit. If he owns a home it's not in Lee County or is under his wife's, etc. name. Does he have a web site?? Nick - post any other info you have.

The NBC 2 link above is best in my opinion. They will jump all over him.

Ft. Myers Police 239-334-4155

I have to take one of my pups to the vet soon. I'll look into some other stuff later today...

Does not own property in Charlotte County either. I bet he rents.

This guy seems like a small time operator. His gross sales are very weak. Sounds like one of the many N. Ft. Myers scumb bags I see on the news all the time. Funny thing, his name sounds familiar for some reason. Wonder if I've seen him on the news???

I don't find the business listed on the Florida site, tried several ways. Here's a link, maybe someone will have better luck :http://www.sunbiz.org/

If it's a valid, registered business, it will be there.

If this is the place I think it is, it was closed and abandoned when I drove by there a few months ago.

Ebay SUCKS to deal with! I would contact Ebay and show proof that you paid for the boat, then they can take away the scumbags proveleges on Ebay.

Just got off the phone with a buddy, yup, he screwed a lot of people, my buddy even had a run in with him over a trailer. Says this jerk is long gone. He's going to nose around too, he knows a lot of people, someone's bound to know more. I'll post more when I know more. I don't think getting on a plane is going to do any good at this point...........
