In my case everything was filed in time and the paperwork was done properly. I kept copies because I've run across jokers like these before. After 18 weeks they stopped even offering excuses and began simply stonewalling with the statement that I'd been put on the expedited list.
After attempting to contact the registered agent for Prime without success, I contacted his mother and told her about her son and that I would have to post her home address and phone number as the best contact for Prime since their published numbers seem to go nowhere. Richard (Tray) Yelverton is Primes registered agent and a belligerent windbag. Ten minutes later I got a phone call from Richard. After 5 min of empty threats he agreed to get a check into my hands within 24hrs to prevent my posting the information. However I will be glad to give it to anyone who calls and asks for it. The other way to get your money is to use the numbers below and call senior staff at home. Soon they'll change the numbers but you have the addresses.
