The Facts; The company I worked for had closed, due to death of the owner and sold home improvement equipment to Danny May, owner of Basic Home Maintenance/Basic Home Repair. The value of said equipment was $2,500.00 by retail verification from Home Depot and Lowes and receipts from the actual purchases. Due to the circumstances, agreed to sell Danny May said equipment for $1,400.00 and he agreed to pay that amount, which we have voice mail and email of him saying he owes the $1000.00 balance. Since he said he could not pay the entire amount, we agreed to the following terms:

To: Danny May


As I left you a voice mail message on your cell phone Saturday morning, I thought I would reach out to you one more time. It seems abundantly clear, that you do not plan to pay for the equipment sold to you in good faith.  To recap on this transaction:

The transaction which occurred on January 22nd, 2014 you paid a $400 down payment on approximately $2500 worth of equipment for a sales price of $1400 sold on terms as follows:

January 22           you were to pay               $333

January 29           you were to pay               $333

February 7          you were to pay               $333

Since then you have had several excuses and promises to pay and now no longer communicate on the debt owed.

You have put many in a bind, since the owner of the company died and employees that need there W-2s cannot get them because the company cannot allocate funds you owe to the CPA to prepare W-2’s.  It appears that we are not the only ones that have not been paid and it seems, you and your company are now earning a bad reputation as illustrated as follows along with others: http://memphis.craigslist.org/hss/4281034295.html

I plan on forwarding this email to all interested parties and taking further actions to collect, since payment seems impossible to receive in the good faith manner.

As we have not heard from you since February 26th when you left a voice mail message saying you will pay, but didn’t offer any constructive resolution. The long and the short of all this is that you took the equipment without paying for it as agreed. It would be nice to settle this without the need of the courts and/or other means of collection, which may end up costing you and your company a whole lot more.

We simply need to know your intent. We really don’t have the time or inclination to continually ask for what was agreed upon in good faith. If need be, we can summons Chris and Randy to court.

We are not responsible for your mishaps. We only owe you the 1,000 for the equipment we bought from you, however, the equipment that you sold us is being repaired due to non-working conditions. If you want to continue to send these emails they will be turned over to our attorney and you will be prosecuted for tax evasion. We are not responsible for your W-2s.

Fine, when can we expect the $1000.00?

On February 26th you said you will pay the $1000.00 owed. My response to you on March 5th was when? What are your intentions?


Regarding the equipment:

He said that the smaller generator of the two generators sold to him, would not start and the paint sprayer needed service. However since this equipment was almost new ,only a minimal expense would correct that issue if in fact his claim is accurate and getting more than $2,500.00 worth of equipment it really is not issue enough to not pay or communicate on resolution.

Do not go to Danny May for any service. He does not pay his employee's and is a fan of free labor and
scamming people into doing work for free by saying he will pay them at a later date... I have filed a
complaint with the BBB and anyone else who has worked for him or any customers who have been ripped
off should do the same. This man does not deserve to continue to rip honest people off because of his greed
and illegally hires Please spread this around! Here is all of his information including were this scammer lives!
He owes me and plenty of other people money and it needs to be paid!

please provide proof

AUTHOR: Ray - ()

We purchased the equipment from owner that was in perfect health  but later we learned that he had left town due tax fraud.  Most of equipment that we bought would not work , we took him at his word. So, we are out of repair fees for equipment.  he is still on the run from the law .
