Kevin Fortier has been known to Purchase Items online and claiming not to recieve. Likes buying kids toys so to not look so guilty. Using his Grandchildren as a reason for the items.

Last christmas, mr. Kevin Fortier from Tupper Lake New York Purchased an atv from me, then asking for refund from not recieving it in which he did. Using the internet as a way to scam people.

If he didnt recieve it, he better find out who did. His neihgbors might be riding it.

He likes to use email to harrass people in giving refund, makes threatening phone calls, then we sent him 100 dollars in case he didnt, we were gonna pay him back.

But then called after the fact and still harrassed,day after he cashed a check for 100, we felt bad because we thought maybe he didnt.

Then he listed my business number online, hurting my name and business, calls threatening with Physical Violence ect...

Even though we strongly believe he recieved the Item, I filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.

I would only hope no one else has to go thru this. Being cooperative could have solved things, we were even willing to refund him, but now its in Bankruptcy. And someone other than I got the bike, The bike was purchased from the manufacturer, sent to the supposed address of Kevin Fortier. If he honestly didnt recieve it and he never threatened us, we would have paid refund of rest, but the way he acted gave me doubts. I would only finish refund if he was to take the reports offline, and stop the harrasment. I am not a thief, But we do have a comfirmed signature. I cant actually make out the name so I would like to find out as well if it was him that recieved it.

If he is honestly telling the truth, then lets work it out, but The money didnt go to me, I would consider my self ripped off as well.

Claimed Ch. 7

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

Yes, I did, and no not because of kevin, well kevy boy, I didnt have a problem paying you due to the shipper(Tiger) but your harrassment stopped me and well, its not a loss due to ch. 7. Now that I have claimed it, and now that you know, If you contact me, or harrass me any further, you will be digging yourself a much deeper hole in legal litigation. Check it out, Its the law of bankruptcy.
It is now much publicly noted. Not to say I still believe you recieved the atv. But never the less, I asked my attorney, and well, its not in my hands any longer. But, if you wish, With no more harrassment, I will still consider paying you back. But Just so you know, publicly noting it online is still a form of harrassement, after your notified now and here, that I filed and its a donr deal. Rip off report will be the down fall. My Att. from Bankruptcy court has informed me that phone calls, letters, or publicly trying to collect is against the law, and how easier is it that I have Proof. Than thru here on R.O.R.
And for the record, yes, It is very difficult to contact "Tiger" They give a run around, but to sue an over sea company for that amount is almost impossible. I actually sold 5 atvs, he is the only one that didnt get his if he really didnt. I stopped co-operating with Kevin due to this r.o.r. and the calls harrassing and foul language. I paid alot for the wholesale list. and I was only trying to Start a legal business online, but I see I cant trust overseas companies to come thru. I was also taken. But I didnt intentionally. Now, I filed chapter 7. Read the l;aw books. Goodbye, I will investigate and if I find true. I will Contact Him, dont contact me.

Ah, Gee! Your credibility takes another hit with your claim that Kevin caused you to file bankruptcy.

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


Kevin posted his complaint about you quite some time ago and provided documentation to support his side of things.

As I understand the situation, you offered to sell a mini ATV on eBay and Kevin was the successful bidder. Kevin paid you in full through PayPal. But you did not actually own or possess the ATV. Some supplier in China was supposed to send it directly to Kevin. Kevin said he did not receive it, you could not provide evidence that Kevin did receive it, and PayPal tried to refund Kevin's money but you did not have enough in your account to do that.

You have apparently tried to confirm that Kevin did receive the ATV, but your supplier could only provide an illegible signature. Why did you not file a claim against the shipper? If the shipper delivered it to Kevin then they ought to be able to prove it. It sounds to me like you ought to be pursuing a complaint against your supplier and their shipper.

Kevin pretty well proved his case that he paid you. You have offered no serious rebuttal to his claim that he never received the ATV.

Your credibility takes another hit with your claim that Kevin caused you to file bankruptcy. Your transaction with Kevin was for something less than $600, a fact that you rather conveniently forgot to mention. Do you really want us to believe that you filed bankruptcy over a single $600 dispute? Obviously, you have promised far more than you are able to deliver and Kevin is not the only one that you owe money to.
