He should have done the right thing and gave me 1500 as I asked and he would still have made money. But as service member I dont expect anything, but I dont expect to get it up the you know what while I am gone either
It really sucks. When did this happen Recently?

While this is a valid observation, it goes beyond a publishing entity protecting its customer and to actually protecting itself. If I as a publisher reprint something libelous, even if I don't know it to be so, I can be sued for libel. I am not a lawyer, but I have pretty well memorized the the libel section of the Associated Press stylebook because it's kind of important given my profession, and I don't think I've misread it.

I am not saying the dispute here involved anything libelous, and I'm not concerned with who is right and wrong. I'm just addressing the subject line of the thread. So one answer to your question is:

They are covering themselves on the legal side, as well as the commerce side.

Broker claimed that it did that damage in 6 months, I didnt think so either does the repairman. Use the BBB you might never get out of it what you want but be reasonable when you file its all on line and takes 10mins. Either way it will be a stain on their record if they dont offer anything. But if somebody is willing to hose a combat vet they will not hestiate to hose you either
I had to reread this cause I didn't pay enough attention to it. No way 6 months could do that. You'd have to have major water in there somehow or termites. Too bad he's not in business yet.
Good luck on it. I bet it turns out great

Default Here you go!!!!

Here you go Chad.

You bring the boat back here fixed as it was before you partially sunk it with a check for the repairs to motorhome and a check for your negative equity and I will write you a check for the boat.

I do not want to trade you into another boat.

I will give you your money back less those two items that were there before you bought the boat and I will even pay your deductible even though no one has explained how there was a two week dead period we heard nothing from you and how there was a brand new impeller in the motor with a new chewed up impeller as well which should be mute if you are getting your money back.

Your call, and I will even pay your 5K dedcutible. This is a public offer. Once I get the 7K and the negative equity you rolled over I will send a wire to the bank for the difference and you can go buy whatever you want.

I hope you feel a refund is fair and that you can come up with the money to make this a good transaction and departure for both of us.

I know I said my last post was my last but I want all the people you have gotten to follow you to know you were offered a refund. Offer valid until Tuesday and boat back within 30 days fixed.

Regards,

Scott Shogren

Do you really think a BBB negative report will effect this dealers rep??
Firstly if the future buyer relies on the BS that is the BBB, they are nuts.
Secondly I dont see anyone staying away from this dealer over a single event that will eventually be worked out.

The BBB is junk.

Actually I'd retract the offer. The complainer has taken this topic to yet another thread.

Scott is being too much of a gentleman.
