Used Equipment is rarely sold on any terms other than "pre-pay". This is for many reasons, but I think mainly it is due to buyers expecting something other than what they receive. Remember the commercial where the guy was supposed to be a French fashion model? If not it's like internet dating, get the idea?

Rarely does anyone decide to travel and inspect what they are considering for purchase. They want pictures, this can lead to serious deception. If the seller (broker or owner) sends you shots of then machine, ask them who took the pictures and when, or if they are even of the exact machine or a similar unit. When looking at these pictures study the background items (floor, shelves walls etc). It has been my experience that people will clean the machine up for the picture, but not the entire shop. The background areas are clues to to the type of shop the machine is coming from.

When I do an inspection to consider a purchase or contract for purchase, I have pretty good idea what is inside the building from what is outside the building eg: ratty cars, broken windows, knee high grass etc. This usually translates to crappy equipment on the inside. The background area of the photos can be used the same way for tip offs as to how the machine has been cared for during it's service life.

Some people are "neat freaks" that don't know the first thing about maintenance, these are the ones that can really hurt your bank account. I always recommend "in person" inspections, if you can't travel then send a qualified technician.

Used equipment is a great deal, a little effort when buying can payoff in a big way. Sitting behind your desk and trusting the seller could lead to a date with a Gorilla.

Still nothing from these scumbags. They literally postpone everytime I contact them by another week, assuring me just one more week, almost done, almost this... Its complete nonesense to be handled like this. They owe me a little less than 5k at this point and for both of them not to have this money to send to me is a complete disgrace.

I try to just keep it cool and give them the time they need to come up with the money, however its looking like they may just be pulling my leg. Not only should you not to do business with either of them, they are criminals and deserve to be in jail. I am giving them about one more week before I escalate this to local authorities.

You are right on, it does sound like a very similiar situation. I just googled for his name and found this thread, everything sounds exactly what they did to me.

Warning!!!! Donald/Donnie Blackwell

I just called that phone number and it is Donnie Blackwell and He is a crooked dude, I am sorry but you'll never get any money back from him unless you file a law suit against him. He lives in South Carolina. and that is a good phone number.

Also Donnie is not an M&R Tech, he is not qualified to work on M&R presses or anything else they make. So my advice is to locate both of their place of residence and get a Lawyer to
to serve them notice of intent to proceed with a lawsuit, that will get their attention.

Information on these guys here. They both scammed me and I will not let it rest until every penny I am owed gets sent to me. They didn't scam me but outright stole my money. I paid for a dryer which I never received, and now they are sitting with my money for the past 4-6 months with no refund. Essentially stealing the money. I am hunting down family members, businesses, anyone that has contact with them I will find them and make sure these people are dealt with. The money is not the motive anymore, stopping these criminals for good is.

Yeah those dudes scammed me too. I bought a dryer and it was a **** show when it arrived. the boards were missing and all sorts of stuff needed to get fixed. They said they would cover whatever was wrong and missing but never did. Still chasing them to this day.

Where are you located? We should pay them a visit perhaps. I don't take too kindly when someone steals from me..
