I contacted Mike to let him know and he said to send it to the repair shop that handles this piece of equipment, and he'd handle it. After I did so, he put me off for several weeks, telling me he was "working on it and would get back to me". I paid the shop to start the work and once they started the work they found that almost everything inside the machine needed to be replaced and didn't work. I let Mike know that the estimate to repair this piece of equipment was now over $4,000. Mike said he'd pay $1,000 and thought that was fair as the rest was a "rebuild", meaning an upgrade (the original price I paid was over $8,000).
I checked with the repair shop and they said that it was absolutely not a rebuild and that it wouldn't work without what they were doing. I wrote to Mike to let him know this and he now will not answer any e-mails or phone calls. I let him know that I was going to have to turn this over to my legal department and he still did not respond. After I bought this equipment from him, I found out that I am not the first person to be ripped off by Mike Meltzer and he has a reputation of being someone who can't be trusted in business dealings.
