Exclamation Warning!!!! Donald/Donnie Blackwell

To all in the screen printing businesses. Be cautious when working with Donald/Donnie Blackwell & his partner Steve! These so called technicians sold me a dryer & automatic 3 months ago & all I've received was a broken dryer. This MF is now no where to be found & does not even have the decency to even return a phone call. He burned me for $14k with empty promises & false delivery dates & to top it off I even had to go and get the dryer myself from a storage warehouse which also owed rent money too. So this is warning to all who come into contact with these guys, BE CAUTIOUS of these scam artist!! If you have any concerns or questions in regards to dealing with these guys, feel free to contact me & I will be more than willing to share my horrible business experience with them. I can be contacted at [email address] or 323-369-3144.

Unfortunately I don't have a ton of time to dedicate to looking for any equipment that might be listed here by the Blackwell crew but if anyone suspects that there is something listed here by them let me know. These guys have done this for far too long and they will not be using this site to scam others.

Well, I was told over the weekend that all the members that have posted here about Donnie are lying about their dealings with him and Donnie hasn't done anyone wrong in the used equipment business. I was also told he doesn't use this site to sell equipment and the fellow that started this thread is lying about the whole deal.

We have had dealings with him in the past with no problems. Just a little hard to get a hold of sometimes. He makes a killer quartz flash

As of today I still have heard nothing or even seen any equipment from Donnie except for the broken dryer. It looks like he is trying to run off with my deposit. I recently ended up purchasing another machine because i've given up hope that Donnie would do the right thing & this time paid on delivery! And I do appreciate all who has helped me in attempting to get a hold of Donnie. I've even met/spoken with a few people who have also had the same bad experience's in dealing with this guy. But again, I do stand by my statements that DONNIE IS A SNAKE & NOT TO BE TRUSTED, if you don't believe me ask Donnie what went down with our business transaction because he is obviously not communicating with us but hiding from the situation.

I can only respond to our situation… Donnie took our money and repeatedly lied to us. He will not return calls, answer calls and if you go to his shop he is ether not there or will not open the door. He will not accept registered letters. As soon as I can confirm his home address I will share it with anyone who would like to know where to find him.

Like most of the posts in here I was too burned by Donnie Blackwell, and Steve vermillion I believe is his name is the reason I originally started talking to Donnie in march of 2013, I was looking to set my small home based business into a smaller auto/dryer/flash and air chiller. A couple months in Excuses started flying and in July I charged him with Fraud, that is the point where communication became an everyday thing. I made the very dumb decision to go ahead with the transaction because I got in writing on a police statement that the equipment would be delivered and worked with 2-3 weeks. that was mid aug. to date I went to his shop about a month ago in South Carolina, and I'm from Alberta Canada I luckily enough meet with him and he lied right to my face and has contacted me via text once since, and lied to me again. I ended up receiving some of the equipmentI ordered and non of it is in a useable state, the only piece that is useable is a 1989 lawson omega dryer which I didnt even ask for or want.

We had a similar experience and would warn other business owners to stay away from Blackwell. We were given a formal quote, everything looked great. Price was unbelievable for a 6 head automatic, 4 head manual and dryer plus 2 flash units. What was finally delivered was not what was on the quote. The dryer looked like it was the 1970's and I think a flash dryer does a better job at drying. Thankfully, we were able to get some equipment, but repeated calls to give us the equipment we were quoted was for nothing.

He won't return phone calls or emails. He has sinced promised to replace our dryer for a better dryer.... for more money of course.

Be warned about this guy. He offers equipment at a very cheap price but you get very, very USED equipment that may or may not work. (Not what he promises in his quote)

Pay a little more and get what you are promised.
