Could you imagine John if you hired one of your friends to help you out with your business and instead he just recorded and copied everything you gave him access to by letting him in your home and office so he could do exactly what you were doing? Including contacting all your customers saying you were the better place to do business with and that you weren't really into doing business at all? Contacting your suppliers and saying you were the new company? I do enjoy competition, it makes for lively action, but I consider this more a theft than anything. Nice enough guy, to your face, but be sure and keep your eyes open to what he's really up to. I try not to dwell on it, except when someone says they did business with him, I feel compelled to make it public what he did. Rick
Rick , going into business a gamble at best . The interview process is just a mere meet and greet . Shy of a gut feeling you still have to gamble . Yes , keyword friend , I would hope it will not happen to me . The best you can hope for is to catch it soon enough . Where damage control can bring things back to where they once were . If this was a friend and he was able to do that to you , what can he do to a stranger ?
I will take this one step deeper , are you posting this for general concern for the public or to get a zing at him ? Human nature will be both and I understand completely . The term every dog has there day (nothing to do with scrappy) . In time the true colors shine through . I don't know when this transpired . In time patrons will see .

You're right, business is a gamble. We've gone through alot of shipping clerks, many let go because they couldn't put the right part in the right box, but a couple because they were stealing. That's human nature I suppose. i'm a trusting person and some are going to take advantage of that. There are also risks in sending money over to some Chinese factory you can't even pronounce, they can rip you off and have no repurcusions, and it's happened, we move on and learn. I had known Dan for years before, and we got along well. He had explained why he was in federal prison and made it sound like it wasn't his fault. I was naive for sure. I think I post here mainly to vent, and also so others will know. I've been thanked by some for letting them know. Most people don't want to deal with people that are thiefs, even if they haven't done anything wrong to them personally. I don't believe it's to get a zing at him because he likely won't see this. He doesn't have a bit of interest in scooters or motorcycles in the slightest bit. He's looking at profit purely. There are plenty of other vendors that you see out there that are so obviously ignorant of what they are selling. He's aware of the way I feel not only from our attorney correspondence, but it's posted publicly on rip off report. I think it's best to let it go personally and move on, and let the legal system do it's long, drawn out process. thanks for the insight John
Rick , I have been burned from china sellers in china . I take my lumps too , I had a conversation with someone who knows you . My understanding at the end was we share some of the same work ethic . One of the differences is you a little further along than myself .
