As far as I'm concerned, the owners of Gaffrig have no charachter or ethics whatsoever. They are stepping on the backs of people who have been knocked down by Fred Cecil.

There's a proper ethical and legal way to do things. Gaffrig chose a shortcut. I hope those that Trick owed don't stand by and let this happen.

I personally will never own a Gaffrig product nor never recommend one. I'll go out of my way to tell this story to anyone who might consider purchasing one of their products.
Significant value? are you serious?

And, for all you know Gaffrig did go through the proper channels. You might consider buying one of these:

You never know all the facts in any situation. A vendor can have a secured postion through contract.

Personally I doubt if there is anything there to reconcile the debt. All you can do is file a claim and let the lawyers and court suck off the cream and you get the dregs.

A company can file for protection and reorginization or two vendors or wronged customers can file against them in that county and force them into bankruptcy.

Big difference between chapter 11 and chapter 13.
