What's even funnier, he admitted to owing the items in his email. So libel/slander appears out of the question. He showed how he treats his customer.

Send a reply indicating that you will be happy to forward his reply to that entire list unless he plans to send you the items he indicated he owes you. Provide a deadline for his response. Be careful, my comment above could be construed as extortion. Check with the attorneys first.

Steve -

What kind of boat are we talking about here? If it's a 25K boat and you are missing the stuff, you may be better telling everyone this guy's name and moving on. If we are talking about a big purchase and very expensive stuff it may be another story. I always feel that if someone owes me money I want it to be lots of money. Don't owe me 5 or 10K. It costs more to get that back then it's worth. My .02

Just evaluate the cost of chasing the problem.

I don't believe you did anything to detract from his credibility, you sent some facts that he acknowledged were true, and then threaten to renege on your deal.

You can have whatever you need Packin. How about 20? Then it will be worth trying to collect.
