Let me first introduce my self, I am 19 years old and currently in college learning how to fly airplanes. I am an honest person and in fact a highly accomplished Eagle Scout. I am honest to everyone I meet and I expect the same treatment in return. I am also a respectful, and well educated person. I had a little extra money to spend so I figured why not get a jet ski, long story short I found what a guy named Danny was selling. A "2007 Sea Doo RXT with 23 hours" (actually a 2006 Sea Doo RXT with over 200 hours cause the clock had been changed).
I told Danny I was ready to buy the jet ski, so I ended up at Foreman Motors, (which I thought I was just buying from someone private sale). I got inside and Giesel (or what ever her name is) rushed me into the back and insisted I give her the money (I hadnt even seen the ski yet). I said hold on I want to see the jet ski first. So I went across the street to the pawn shop and I looked over the ski, which it did look nice. Come to find out, the battery is dead. They jump it with another car, it sounds like a jet ski, (It only had 23 hours on it right) so I decide that I am going to buy it.
I get back inside, give Geisel the money first, then the paper work. Shes putting papers in my face faster than I can sign them, and at one point I asked, "what am I signing?" "she said oh its nothing, just paperwork that we have to keep on file". Once the paperwork is done, the new battery takes about 3 hours to arrive (the autoparts store is right down the road), but it gets there, the mechanic and I put it in and I left. Unhappy. Got the jet ski to water finally, put it in, and it gets about 500' out and dies.
Took it to a couple friends who said it has a bad cylinder, bring it back. Brought it back to Foreman Motors and was told that Danny had already taken my $5000 cash and that I would have to come in on monday and talk to him. I asked the lady, will Danny even do anything for me? She said oh yeah Dannys great. Meanwhile I'm hearing from every last one of his employees how much they hate their job. I took the jet ski home, and put it in my garage.
Come monday, I brought it back, and an employee comes up to my window, I asked "Is Danny around?" he said yes he's right over there, and pointed at some guy. I parked my truck, got inside and yet again asked for Danny. I was told "oh Dannys not here today". Then I spoke with Dave, who was COMPLETELY uninterested. He told me that he was very sorry but he couldnt do anything for me. Now I am stuck with a broken jet ski that I can not afford to fix. Had to pay them another $1000 in fees that I did not even know about, and on top of all that, I still dont have my title (I owe them NOTHING, I paid in cash and I have reciepts). To conclude, I have never seen a worse run business, I knew more about the jet ski than his mechanic did.
Everyone that I met that worked there was completely uneducated, and really hard to communicate with (cursing, sitting around smoking cigarettes...etc). Don't waste your money, nor your time there. You will lose, just like I did. These guys are a perfect example of why people don't help others anymore, cause there afraid they will get burned. That's exactly what these guys do, they take advantage of people who are down on there luck, they take what little money they have left and sell them something that is not what it was supposed to be. I would never buy a car there, but if you find your self buying one from them, go educated, and read there paperwork, it does not say what you might think it does.
