The people that own the site now received the site in lieu of payment of debts. All the other people that were boned by Fred were left high & dry. So Monster got theirs and all the rest got f.ucked.

I don't believe I'll be ordering from them anytime soon.

There are plenty of other OSO supporting part suppliers to buy from.

Why would anyone boycott them? If Monster did in fact receive the site for payment due, is sounds like he was the smartest one of all. Fred got me for almost 2K, I wrote it off as bad debt. Everyone should just move on, use the energy to better yourself, karma a funny thing, time will tell.

That whole deal is a trick bag.

Talk to Kirk at Elite Marine instead.

Widely known in the industry and discussed at length as Trick was dying and Fred was Ebaying his remaining inventory.

It was a backdoor deal and most likely a fraudulent conveyance as a bulk transfer of assets. Too bad all the people Fred boned wre in for relatively small $$ and they couldn't get any action on it. The value of Trick's assets should have been equally distributed to all creditors.

Yes there are- many of them good, hard-working folks who come here & participate- they answer tech questions and are deserving of your business.
