Dramacie Condra came into my business and talked me into purchasing a 6 ft.sign, which he claimed would fit above the awning of my shop. I did not agree because the telephone pole and lines are within four feet of the awning. He measured out the distance and assured me that the space was 1 to 2 ft. away from the line,and the sign wasn't too large. He agreed to give me 2 days to get someone out to be sure that the lines would not interfere, and I signed a contract. He took my check, went straight to the bank, and cashed it and left town. That evening I had someone come out to look at the lines, and they informed me that the lines were too close and the awning was too steep. I called Dramacie and left several messages that evening on his cell phone. The next day about 2:30 p.m. he returned my call. He was already 150 miles away. His opinion was, if I got the right man out he was sure that they could make the sign fit.
Well, the phone company told me it would not work. I asked Damacie about an inside sign, but he wasn't interested in selling me one. He wanted to sell me an upright outside sign. Again, the one that he wanted to sell me was too large.He would not talk to me about a smaller inside sign. I went immeadetly to the bank and stopped payment on the ACH payment on my account. I called him again and told him that I had stopped payment on the ACH, and I found out that he had already cashed my check for the amount of $400.00 dollars. I told him that he had lied to me, and I would not accept a sign if it was shipped to me. He told me that the contract could not be broken. I demanded his bosses name and number, but before I could contact him, Dramacie called him. When I did get through to his boss, Lance, I explained the situation to him. His reply was what a good salesman Dramacie was, and he wasn't good with inside signs. He would get him to email me a picture of a moving sign that I could use inside. I agreed to look at it but said I was not agreeing to purchase anything. The new sign was smaller but too large to use in the space that I have available for display and the price was still $6000.00 dollars.
Dramacie emailed me. His words were " I'm glad that we have found a solution to the problem." I called, and told him no solution had been found. He had lied to me, and I wanted my money back. He pretended like there wasn't a problem and didn't know what I was talking about. I called his boss,a couple of times and had to talk to a recording. No one returned my calls. I called the 800 number and was told I had signed a contrac,t and they would put my $400.00 toward another sign. I became angry and told the young lady that I did Not want a sign because they were trying to take advantage of me and rip me off. I left a message for Dramacie that I would file charges against him if he did not return my money. No answer to this date. I have tried to get in contact with Dramacie, his boss Lance, and the 800 number, which I am always given the voice mail. I faxed a letter stating the same that is printed here, to Signtronix, I also mailed the same letter to the Northern Leasing company in New York. I havent received an answer from anyone. I have been ripped off. These people pulled smiliar scams on several other businesses here. Even taking some to court to collect what they say is owed to them. I think it is a shame that large businesses like Signtronix comes to small towns to pull scams and rip people off.
