Allan Goodman and Business Mailing Systems sold me used equipment as new. The equipment it turned out was several years old but had been refurbished by Goodman. It took me some time to realize I had paid almost $35000 for equipment that should have cost much much less.

In addition, Goodman being the professional con that he is, removed all the serial number panels and other items that would have made it easy to determine the fraud. This makes me believe he has done the same before as he is far from a novice.
I would be very careful if you ever have to do business with the guy because he is a con.

Rebuttal-Total False

AUTHOR: Lance - (Afghanistan)

This rebuttal is totally false. Goodman engaged in a systematic method to make the equipment appear new. There was never any mention of 'refurbished' equipment, ever. In fact as stated, he had the equipment re-furbished to look new and removed serial #'s so that he wouldn't be caught.

He sold me one piece of equipment for $12,000 that was worth $2000.

Send me your contact information to lanceherndon(at sign)yahoo(dot)com and i will send you the copy of the invoice.

Last I heard of Business development systems they were bankrupt!!!

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company


AUTHOR: ALLAN GOODMAN - (United States of America)

On about October 2004 Mr. Lance Herndon contacted our company to purchase equipment from our company, Business Mailing Systems.

Mr. Herndon asks for an opportunity to demo the equipment prior to purchase, which our company was happy to do so. Mr. Herndon was impressed with the new, used equipment, so much his company Mortgage Lending Inc a Montana Corporation, Lance Herndon signed the Purchased Agreement on the following equipment:

Mortgage Lending Inc a Montana Corporation, Lance Herndon purchased the following equipment;

1)  New Kyocera Laser Printer Model 9520 with all options one can get for laser printer.

2) Reconditioned Secap Model W790 inkjet Printer for addressing

3) New Datatech Model 3200 inserter

4) New Formax Model FD1500 auto sealer folder

5) New Strapping Machine

6) New Postalsoft Software for Mail Management

7) On-site service agreement

In regards to purchasing new equipment he had the opportunity to buy a new Printer an decided to buy a reconditioned Secap w790/13klc printer because a new was $15,995.00 retail and decided to save over $7,000.00 because we would warranty the printer like a new one.

It is impossible to know the age of a printer if the serial no was no longer on the printer and in all my years of selling equipment I have never removed a serial number from a piece of equipment.

During the course of the first year, Mr. Herndon and his employees received training on software, equipment use and care training onsite.  

Mr. Herndon made five (5) tech support calls and addressed all tech support issues. Our last tech support call for Mr. Herndon Kyocera printer was on about June 2005.  

Our last contact with Mr. Herndon was about July 2005, Mr. Herndon order supplies from our company. If Mr. Herndon would have return the printer to our office and if we could not
repair the printer we would have replaced it at no charge to Mr. Herndon.

On about November 2006 Mr. Herndon filed in Superior Court Case No. CV2005-053240. 

The case was dismissed in June 2008 in our company favor probably due to the fact and Mr. Herndon did not have a case?

If I bought a use car, drove it off the lot and used the car for over 10 months, can we just return it because I dont like it anymore? I dont think so.

Mr. Herndon was a happy customer for months, but something happen with his company to want to return his used car.

We have been in business for over 24 years. We sell and New and Used Mailing Equipment, software, supplies, and on site service, for any budget.
