Almost 2 years ago I bought a second laptop computer from Micheal
Phillips(aka.DJ Badabing) and immediately regretted giving him a second chance
since it was apparent that there was a major problem with it charging. I had
problems with it staying on for the first gig(2 weeks) So I contacted Mike
telling him there had to be a limited warranty on it but he at first said no. I
looked into what was wrong and set about fixing it myself(Bought new motherboard
direct from HP website and took it to a computer friend for repair. at which
point Mike began telling me he had a warranty and he could get it fixed.. there
was a 90 day and a two year warranty and he would "send it out" He had not been
answering my calls due to a gf's jealousy.
He was asking to use my speakers and amplifier so I let him.
I tried to let him fix the problem meanwhile he had always helped me get
equipment so I had him buy me a second amplifier(350$) he finally persuaded me
to purchase music with him online(150$) and then he came to my house right
before thanksgiving begging for cash to replace his mixer(240$) which when I
didn't have it he begged my daughter a student for. He would pay her back that
Saturday(It was thanksgiving day I believe a tuesday) no later. I was meanwhile
trying to help him hold onto his Gig's by loaning him my amp and speakers(he
damaged my bag) and didn't get them back to me the same night so I became
uncomfortable and began taking them myself and setting them up and then knocking
them down still trying to help him and getting not only nothing for it but also
no money he owed me either. I still thought I was helping a friend..
I felt bad his girlfriend had been mean and was trying to help him get
to know a good friend of my family at the same time...
It was right before Xmas when I mikes excuses didn't seem to add up and
I dropped by to talk to him and his mother sat me down to explain how bad it all
really was. Mike had taken my speakers during one of the times he had borrowed
them and sold them down at a used musical instruments store...She had bought
them back for me and saved him from that trouble... He no longer had use of the
car because he had been drinking and he was not going to be DJing for the same
He had been working but accepting little payment, drinking while doing
so.She had taken his laptop (and vehicle) from him and given it to his brother
who was copying all the music at the time. She would not allow him to give me
the music we had purchased together. I would not be getting my laptop fixed thru
Michael because it had all been lies...
She told me he was an alcoholic and had many other health issues bottom
line being he would get me the amplifier I had given him money for(350$), return
the music(150$) costs, and repay the loan (240$) when he got back on his feet. I
needed to take a loss on the laptop as far as she was concerned. I explained
that I wanted a backup working computer and would accept mikes old one(I assumed
they were trying to sell it anyway) if she wanted me to not go thru with courts
and filing but she said the brother would not return it. I put it in witting and
tried to et them know that although I had been nice and negotiating up till then
I was not going to continue being such and this was the end.
I explained that there was a statute of limitations on the Laptop and
unless she was willing to make a deal I would find acceptable as a loss I would
do so before mid February. I went home and wrote up such a deal presenting it to
her.(see attached). I dropped by to retrieve flash drives and tried to get them
to agree but they don't seem to want to make this okay.
SO I need to file charges and see if there is anything that the courts
I am out about 2000$ dollars in the end and I am sure others can be
found that are out the same or more. Please help me to see justice. Thank you in
advance for your time and consideration.
