TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN,

UNITED YACHTS HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN BREAKING THE LAW,UNETHICAL PRACTICES, AND LYING. MY FAMILY HAD OUR YACHT LISTED WITH THIS COMPANY AND SEVERAL MONTHS AFTER LISTING IT THE YACHT WAS STOLEN. WE NOTIFIED THE BROKERS IMMEDIATELY AND THEY AGREED IT WAS STOLEN. SEVERAL MONTHE AFTER THE THEFT A BUYER COME TO THEIR OFFICE AND THEY WENT AND SHOWED THE YACHT WHILE IN THE THIEVES POSSESSION ,TELLING THE BUYER THEY WERE REPRESENTING ME THE OWNER. THREE DAYS LATER THE THIEVES HELD A PRIVATE ILLEGAL SALE OF THE YACHT AND THE BROKER CALLED THE INTERESTED CUSTOMER AND TOLD HIM THE THIEVES OWNED YACHT AND WERE SELLING IT. IN FLORIDA THE YACHT BROKERS ARE SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW THE STRICT GUIDELINES OF THE FLORIDA YACHT AND SHIP BROKERS ACT. (GOOGLE IT). THE LAW SAYS A BROKER REPRESENTING THE BUY OR SELL OF A BOAT LARGER THAN 33 FEET FOR A COMMISSION MUST DO IT AS A BROKER. IT SAYS ALL MONEYS MUST BE PUT INTO AN ESCROW ACOUNT. THE HIRING BROKER-OWNER PETER SCHMIDT TOLD HIS BROKER THE NIGHT BEFORE THE ILLEGAL SALE HE WOULD HAVE TO DO IT AS A PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL (ILLEGAL). SO AFTER REPRESENTING THE BUYER AT THE ILLEGAL SALE THE BROKER HAD THE BUYER WIRE HIS 7K COMMISSION INTO HIS PRIVATE ACCOUNT. THE SALE DID NOT GO THROUGH, THE BUYER WAS OUT HIS COMMISION BUT THE BROKER CALLED TO MAKE PAYMENT ARRAINGEMENTS. THE BROKER LAWRENCE PIRRITINO MADE ONE PAYMENT THEN DISAPPEARED. THE DAY I EXPOSED THEIS COMPANY THE BROKER AND OWNER OF THE COMPANY CALLED THE BUYER TO GET PAYMENTS GOING AGAIN. THESE PEOPLE ARE LIARS, LAWBREAKERS, SCUMBAGS AND DO NOT GIVE A d**n ABOUT THEIR OWN CUSTOMERS.

RECENTLY I WAS CALLED AND TOLD A BROKER OF UNITED YACHTS TOM THOMAS ( GOOGLE TOM THOMAS UNITED YACHTS) WAS LYING TO CUSTOMERS COVERING FOR THE LAWS HIS COMPANY BROKE. I CALLED TOM THOMAS POSING AS A CUSOMER AND ASKED HIM ABOUT THESE POSTINGS. TOM IMMEDIATELY LIED,FALSIFIED FACTS AND YOU CAN READ HIS E MAIL SENT TO ME CONFIRMING THESE LIES. HE EVEN WENT AS FAR AS SAYING THE U.S. COAST GUARD STEPPED IN AND GAVE THE THIEVES THE TITLE TO VESSEL AND ALLOWED THEM TO SELL IT. THEN HE SAID UNITED YACHTS WON A BIG SUIT AGAINST ME WHICH NEVER HAPPENED.

STATE AGENCIES HAVE CONFIRMED THIS WAS ILLEGAL. IF YOU WANT TO BUY OR SELL A YACHT THIS IS NOT THE COMPANY TO USE. I CAN REFER A GOOD BROKER WHICH ARE RARE IN FLORIDA.

PLEASE READ MY SITES,GOOGLE UNITED YACHTS,SOULCAST UNITED YACHTS, AND READ LETTERS FROM SEVERAL PEOPLE THEY SCREWED INCLUDING THE MAN THEY LIED TO AND REPRESENTED AT AUCTION.

#1 UPDATE Employee

UNITED YACHTS CLEARED OF ANY WRONG DOING IN COURT

AUTHOR: Sickofthebullcrap - (U.S.A.)

Read about it at unitedyacht.us and check the links to the actual court papers on the right side.

Can Robert provide any documented proof of wrong doing besides slices phone conversations and reposted emails?

United Yacht Sales was cleared of any wrong doing in this case. Just because Robert Krutko says something on the internet doesn't mean it is true.

Upon a bit of google research it is not hard to find the truth in this case.

Also Mr. Michael Ballon is no longer a broker for United Yacht Sales.

Robert Krutko is balancing a fine line of stalking and harrassment and soon will be facing criminal charges himself.

Also email him and ask him about the civil case he lost, Slander and Liable.

But he won't post about that.

He also calls brokers in the state of Florida and treatens to ruin them if they don't join his bandwagon against United Yacht Sales. These cases are documented and more come in weekly. Sounds a bit like blackmail and Extortion to me.

Feel free to send me an email anytime with any questions at (((ROR redacted)))
