Yep,

 

Some people just want to steal money instead of working for it. I have entered into a legal battle over my custom built air compressor and may very well lose it, either way the business will have a Mec. lien attached and everyone I know will know them as people who like to steal other people's stuff instead of working for it.

 

Such is life with these new ''up start'' business.

Sounds like a very stressful situation for you as well as the loss of the equipment /$. I hope you can get it resolved quickly.

Sounds like those jerks are real losers, Jesse. 

 

If they exceeded whatever they quote you and you have record of what they quoted, and then they overdid the repair, they cannot impound the machine in Virginia.  I don't know if that is the way it is up with you or not.

It is illegal to hold my air compressor considering there is no binding legal documentations, in other words, the compressor is being held illegally. Threats has ben made to me by way of suing with some kind of attached damage to a boat ? and a lien will be attached ? very questionable actions considering i have made several tries to avoid such actions.

 

This seems all to pre-planed, there is more to the story and i will figure this out.

Always something in this state !

 

I agreed to help a couple with house winterization jobs in March, I never should of said yes, was suxed into things I did not want to do and when I moved on to my primary job things got worse.

 

I knew I should of loaded up and taken the compressor right then and there, my mistake I will not do again.

You know Jesse that if it's a compressor you have pics documented here on GTT, then you should have proof of ownership.

If they claim to authorities it was their compressor to begin with then don't tip your hat about having proof. Once they claim to authorities it was there's, it'll be too late for them to change their story.

Oh, I see now. One of those deals. I understand now. And now you can't go there to get it. Some times you just get that felling about a job or the people. I have had a few of those , but you get better at figuring them out as time goes a long. Again, sorry for your trouble. Noel.

Noel, It takes as much effort to try and fail as it does to try and succeed, either way, a lesson is learnt. This is one of them, this will be the third time in less then 6 months and I am sick and tired of it.
