WE PUCHASED AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN FROM THESE FOLK, FOR OUR CHURCH RETREAT SITE, SO WE COULD OFFER BBQ TO THE SUMMER CAMP KIDS. WE SENT THEM A CHURCH CHECK FOR ALMOST $5,000. THAT WAS OVER 3 MONTHS AGO . WE KEEP GETTING PUT OFF WHEN WE CALL AND TRY TO GET SOME INFORMATION. THEY KEEP SAYING THERE HAS BEEN AN UNEXPECTED DELAY AND A MANAGER WILL CALL YOU. WELL YOU GUESSED IT NO ONE EVER CALLS BACK, AND EACH TIME YOU CALL YOU TALK TO A DIFFERENT PERSON, SO YOU JUST GO ROUND AND ROUND. WE HAVE ASKED FOR OUR MONEY BACK, BUT HAVE NOT HEARD IF THEY WILL OR WILL NOT EVENTUALLY SEND OUT MONEY BACK. I ONLY WISH I HAD NOT TRUSTED THEM, AND CHECKED THEM OUT ON THE BBB OR SOME OTHER SITE. NOW WE ARE OUT OUR FUND RAISED MONEY AND HAVEN'T GOT A OUTDOOR KITCHEN. I HAVE REPORTED THEM TO THE BBB AND THE FTC, I DON'T KNOW IF WE CAN AFFORD A LAWYER. ITS JUST SO SO WRONG FOR PEOPLE TO TAKE OTHER PEOPLES MONEY THAT WAY.
