They would've had to of taken Fred's inventory to sell, so they owe me money or there selling what they don't have? Just trying to figure this mess out.

Therein lies the problem, gaffrig said they took over the site only(as said on here) YET they are still advertising your product that in essence is "stolen"...call and demand them to stop...personnally I think Trick is trying to get rid of the other merchandise under the monster name, if Gaffrig has anything to do with this, they are as far as DONE in the marine business with me.

Thanks for the product feedback! I had my web designer disable the link when this story broke and didn't even realize it was still up. Thanks for the heads up!

I'm surprised there has never been a comment/post on OSO from Gaffrig themselves on the take over. One would surely think that they would want to nip it in the butt and clarify any doubt.

Something is still fishy with this whole deal. Me thinks Fred is Monster Marine. Until proven otherwise.

US1 Fountain ... I think you mean "nip it in the bud." Nipping it in the butt, well, that could be painful.

And people would surely talk.

proven otherwise. Monster has NOTHING to do with fred. They are new owners and are in the process of trying to sort everything out and get it up and running properly.

if you have any issues call them directly (toll free) and ask. 1-866-689-6790

Yep, that's what I meant.

Now there's a novel idea! Glad someone thought of it.

I've found that they are busy with getting everything started, so the phones aren't 100% yet. I can't fault them for that because I know it takes a little time with a new business. I appreciate the email and giving me a heads up on the situation. From what I now know, Fred is Not involved with Monster whatsoever. The new owners are doing their best to get everything sorted out and figure out their product lines. They don't have my inventory and they are working on the website, so I'm giving them sometime to get everything rolling. I appreciate everyone's comments about my situation, so we'll see where it goes from here.
