Guys I fill for ya. I was lucky in my dealings with him. My bank was ready to charge him with fraud and he ended up paying the boat off. I can only quess he screwed someone else to do it. Who was his partners in this. I can remember someone by the name of Tit somthing? These guys have seemed to vanished too.

Unfortunately we were in the middle of your deal since it was our boat. But we worked together to get it done and we made two new friends out of the deal. We were also lucky that we got out when we did (barely).

We feel for everyone that got caught up in this mess.

Clearcut I don't disagree with your comment. I've got a very considerable sum involved and trust me I don't have Prince of Bahrain money (or his poor cousin twice removed for that matter).
My observation was that no one deserves to get screwed like this...whether you make 30K or 300M.

I will say that I am running out of patience and it looks like no end in the forseeable future. For some (me included) this could go on for a while.

I'm seriously contemplating getting out of this sport, if I ever can that is.

NOPE

Just asking....

Let me put it like this: Bloom called me and said Bill wanted an '04 Lamborghini Murcielago E-gear and knew my dealer would bump him since I am have dealt with them forever. Once I foolishly got an incoming car reserved he came back and wanted a discount. WHen a new Lambo comes out you have to pay MSRP unless you have a very long relationship with your dealer. He was driving around in a Ferrari 360 Spyder at the time and Bloom wanted me to buy it so they did'nt have to trade it in. I have no idea what kind of homes he owned but I believe he had a townhouse in FL. If I recall correctly Bill did'nt live anything like an average Joe because he had to keep up the BS that he was a mega millionaire. For anyone unfamiliar with the term "Mega"in TX means excess of $10mil net.

He lived well on other peoples money
