Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Here is the latest in my court case /  Law Suit against Dave McDonald, McDonlad Vending Inc. aka Value Vending. In the couple days before my court date Dave called me said he just got off the phone with his attorney and basicly said he would deliver the vending machine this was on 4/10 our court date was 4/12..... guess what that was a big fat lie he never did, remind you it is been 6 months since I paid him. 

On 4/11 the day before the court date, he called asking if I would call off my lawyer that he would deliver.  Till this day he has made no delivery.  He told me my problem "Is I don't trust him"  this statement shows how crazy he is.  The sherrif was unable to serve him so the cas was contined to mid May.  I'll keep everyone updated..... Dave is lier and thief, this is BS as I have done nothing wrong, I paid for the machine upfront big mistake and Dave has been lieing to me for 6 months.    Now I've had to incurre costs at no fault of my only because of Dave McDonlad of McDonald Vending Inc. steals from people.

Still owed money

AUTHOR: Gorman Distributors - (United States of America)

Anthony, I am glad your experience went well.  Please call Dave, since you have such a great relationship with him and ask him to send me the money he owes me for the BRAND NEW AC1005 changer I sent him in September 2011.  I spoke with him on the phone last week and he promised to mail me a check for $500.  A week has gone by and still no money.

I am glad Dave is still answering his phone, but his promises of sending payment are lies.  I've heard his promises for almost a year. 

If you are indeed real Anthony, which I have my doubts.  You are being used to pull in other "customers" so that gave can continue his ponzi scheme.

Dave, thanks for continuing to read these.  Yes I understand your lawyer is going to sue me for defamation.  But Dave, it's hard to sue me for something that is true.  You have an outstanding invoice to Gorman Distributors that is unpaid.  I have never trashed you personally, just spoke truthfully about money that is owed to me.  Send me a check so I can stop wasting my time replying to Anthony's postings.

Dave owes me $1499

AUTHOR: Gorman Distributors - (United States of America)

Dave, another string of RipOff Report that I enjoy reading.  I want everyone to know you still owe me $1499 from the brand new American Changer AC1005 you received on 9/2/2011.  Plus the repair I paid for on my credit card of $200 for a unit you didn't fix.  BLah blah blah, the unit wasn't broken.  Yeah yeah yeah.  You are full of crap.

I hope everyone that you try to do business with reads these reports.

I will stop posting if you send me a bank check or money order for $1499.

Authors are listed

AUTHOR: justANOTHERvictim - (United States of America)

Authors are listed.  I cannot help when Dave McDonald yells to "sign your name-say who you are"  Authors are right there, listed!  Dave, take the time to see who wrote it!

Patrick: I receive the same crap from Dave McDonald, being blamed for anything you have said or done.  Dave McDonald apparently cannot comprehend who the writer's are.  I have distanced myself since Feb 2012 when he never made any promised deliveries. We have never had one word of communication back to him with all his ramblings, yet he continues to harass.  (4 months later)

I guess it is very hard to determine Euclid vs Rockford.  The spelling is so close!  ha ha

Maybe it is a case of too many victims that he just can't keep them all straight.  I was blamed for contacting you and "working in pairs with you" when in fact I have never had a single shred of communication with you. 

HEY DAVE:  It's Sue, you know, the one you call "HEY GUNLADY" on all your voice mails to me.  Dave, I don't own a gun and I do not belong to a gun club. But I am sure you will be letting me know how wrong I am and how I do not know my own life.  LOL. 

Patrick and I have never spoken or written each other.  Patrick and I have never done anything together to you or against you.  Patrick and I have never and will never meet.  Patrick has his own Author name as I have my own Author name.  Patrick and I have agreed we are done with you.  Now it is your turn to decide you are done with us.  It's really getting very old Dave.

Re: justANOTHERvictim

AUTHOR: abcpatrick - (United States of America)

For some reason Dave thinks you are me. Every time you post he contacts me with long emails saying he's going to sue me etc etc. Although funny I prefer to distance myself from a person of his character.

Please let him know who you are so he stops hassling me. I appreciate it.

Thank you.

.....and a warrant will be issued for his arrest.......

AUTHOR: justANOTHERvictim - (United States of America)

Now that is funny.  Do you know how many warrants are out for his arrest?  Dave Mc Donald has warrants out for his arrest and remains on the street.  He had warrant out for his arrest when I dealt with Will Co Sherrif department (in Feb) and I gave them the most recent address and nothing was done.

Your court judgement should have been immediate refund.  I would NEVER accept a machine from Dave McDonald after broken promises, lies and deliusional behavior.  He could drop off a piece of junk to you and say "delivery made"  and they wouldn't touch him.  Your judgement should have been for cash refund only and then you could have dealt with a REAL vending machine company for your machines and be done with Dave Mc Donald.

I am sorry you are still in the Dave McDonald vicious circle.  Please do not be delusional that Dave McDonald will follow thru with anything.  He is running from so many issues in life, vending I think, is his last concern.  He doesn't show up for court dates and still remains free to roam and do "business."

Illinois States Attorney's office (once again) is the way to start off the pressure.  File reports and have them pressure him.  But to sit and believe justice will come to him just on principal of all illegal acts is as deliousal as Dave McDonald himself. For some reason he remains free, untouched.

I am still following this and have contacted many that were scammed and not refunded.

Court Case Update

AUTHOR: Suethedave - (United States of America)

Just updating everyone on my court case against Dave McDonald / McDonald Vending.  on May 15, 2012 the courts sided with me and issued a judgement against Dave McDonald / McDonald Vending.  To this day he still hasn't delivered the vending machine.  Since the judgement was issued I've been promised countless times the machine will be delivered in latest lie he claims he has hired someone else to deliver the machine this was over two weeks ago.   Since he hasn't confirmed with the judgement in delivering the machine another court date is coming up,  for this court date Dave needs to show and explain to the courts why he has failed to comply with the court order, if he doesn't show he will be held  in contempt and a warrant will be issued for his arrest.  I'll post a copy of the actual judgement shortly.

AUTHOR: david r mcdonald mcdonald vending v - (United States of America)

why is it that you do not sign your name???

by your own admission you are not owed anything.

i have not refunded anyone in rockford other than Sue Murr 4 months ago.

if anyone has been harmed by me I am sorry and I will do anything possible to wrong a problem.

the problem here is when there is no problem and you want to continue to carry on Mr. Patrick McGinty it is malicous interference with a business.

again feel free to contact me if you have a problem and it will be corrected!

AUTHOR: justANOTHERvictim - (United States of America)

Everyone has had the exact scenario with Dave McDonald.  It is is delusional.... they are all is fraud.... it is theft.  Oh but all you have to do is say you want the delivery and he is there!  How many times must others hear the same stories before they stop buying from Dave McDonald, McDonald Vending, Value Vending?  It's a racket.  Police department will not file a report saying it is small claims. Lawyers say it is criminal and the police departments should take the report. You can't send Dave McDonald anything by return receipt because he doesn't accept it or has moved once again.  So you have to pay the Sheriff department to serve Dave McDonald.  Lawyer fees, small claims court fees and Dave knows this procedure and feels he can just keep taking customers money and nothing will happen.  It has been going on for 8 to 10 yrs now.  If you want to gather a group to take Dave McDonald to court and have him charged with fraud, it would cost 10 people 1 grand each and hope you win the case and Dave McDonald has to pay the costs. (RIGHT....he can't even refund anyone)   He pays rent on a semi empty office monthly. The only way anyone receives a refund is if he feels threatened and he has just ripped off another so he has that money to send.  We were ripped off in Feb and someone rec'd their refund with our money.  We were refunded in April as someone else was just ripped off so that money was sent to us.  It is a vicious circle...a never ending circle.  And many never receive their money back.

Stay tuned as the owner (but he says he doesn't have a business) of Value Vending, McDonald Vending responds here. He will say we are all wrong.  We are all mean.  We are all to blame because we do not have our machines.  Dave McDonald will be the first to tell you that the machines are there and looking good...he's just waiting for the delivery.  We are the reason we don't have the machines.  Dave will tell you that he has done nothing wrong. And of course there is always an excuse why a delivery is missed, why you don't have your machine (s) why he didn't show up, why you don't have your money. Excuses and false promises.

We all have all the emails and texts and voice mails that prove Dave McDonald is delusional, deceitful and all mouth!!!  How embarrassing for his mother to have to sustain her child's behavior and how he has ruined the reputation of their family business.  Shame on the individual/individuals that participate in this charade along with Dave McDonald of selling machines.  They are present pretending to be an employee and they are there knowing the customers are being ripped off.  Yet they remain silent. 

PLEASE report to Illinois State's Attorney's Office of Lisa Madigan.  It is very important all legal reporting is completed.  If you can get the Will County Police Department to file a report, do so.  Keep contacting Dave McDonald and all authorities you can to have better odds of being refunded.  But be very clear that you will never receive the machines.  All the promises are false and you have to stop attaching hope to his lies and false promises.

3rd party that is Patrick McGinty again wake up!

AUTHOR: david r mcdonald mcdonald vending v - (United States of America)

Patrick was the first to start the rip off report crap

He continues to engage anything he can to make me look like dirt.

His newest ploy is to write a couple on comments underneath reports to make it look like a customer has used this venue to make a decision not to do business with me.

This is the most pointless crap yet,.

If I have ever harmed anyone I am sorry and all that matters to me is fixing this problem which looks like a monster and it really is nothing more than Sue Murr and Patrick McGinty in Euclid Ohio trying to destroy me.

What do these peoples family think about them butting their nose into  someone else's business with the intent to do malicous harm.

What type of people are you.  Sign your name and grow a set and take  make me aware of the real problem so I can fix it if their is one at all.

Man (or to use the word in Sue's case loosely) woman up and sign your name to what you write!

Facts of my deal with McDonald Vending

AUTHOR: Suethedave - (United States of America)

 These are the facts in deal with Dave McDonald, McDonald Vending:
- On 10/28/11 I contacted Dave McDonald, I found his information on Craigslist in which he was advertising vending repair and vending machines for sale.  The purpose of my call was that I have a combo vending machine in which the cooling unit is not working, I inquired about getting it repaired, Dave said the machine I have is crappy and not worth the money to repair ( to his credit I had spoken to other people about repairing and got same answer).  Dave then made me an offer, he offered me a National 474 combo machine for a $$$$ and he wanted my broken machine, he said that he had a couple compressors in his shop and could fix my machine and could then sell for a little money.  That the compressors were just sitting and this would allow him to use one of them.  Dave said he needs to be paid up front we agreed to meet that night 10/28/10 at 630 PM at my store, we meet in the evening cause I work during the day.  When I got their at 630 he was already waiting to collect the money up front, with one of his employees.  To collect the money up front he was not a minute late.  Dave collected my check gave me a receipt marked paid the receipts described the details of our deal.   Notice all was good when it came to collection the money up front.

- Dave said delivery would be the following Tuesday 11/1/10 same time and please, at which time he would deliver the machine I purchased and he would take my combo machine in my store.  That Tuesday I called him about 500 pm and asked everything was still on time, he said a UPS delivery came late and he was working to get my machine ready, Dave stated it would still happen that night just little late.  At about PAM after couple texts Dave said t was getting late lets do the following day.  This keep repeating itself between 40-60 times over the next six months....and here we are six months later and still no machine.  During the past six months I've offered the following I said he can drop off at my house as I live close to him thinking that would be easier for him, I told him I would meet him at midnight if needed, each time I knew I would be at the store during the day I coordinated deliveries during those days, none of which he showed up for.  On a few occasions I on days delivery was supposed to happen, I had several contacts each time I was told he will be on no issues that it will get done each time that last communication was I'm close or will be on my way soon and he would never show and stop returning calls for the rest of the day.  Then couple days later I would get in contact with him and hear the whole story "I'm sorry", " I will make this right", "this is not your fault", "I was in the hospital", "Don't worry you will be one happy man", "I will end this by the end of the week", " I promise you", and so on  

- Early December I called Dave and said "lets get this done tell me when you can deliver to make sure it's a day when he knew it would absolutely happen" I didn't want fake promises, I didn't care if it was two days or a week that I just wanted the truth when he could delivery.   This conversation happened on a Thursday in early December Dave said the following Tuesday, nothing on schedule will get in the way.  He said be at the store after 6PM he will deliver himself.  I talked to him several times that Tuesday to confirm if we were still on schedule, each time I spoke with Dave he said yes.  The last contact was around 7pm Dave said he was running late but on the way, around 730 I tried to call him back with no answer, around 740 Dave's I mom called left a voicemail and said Dave would bring machine tomorrow.  That never happened then day or so later he called and my wife answered and said how shitty it was for him to lie to us as we were waiting for him had the kids.  That is the only time my wife has spoken to him she answered a phone call from him. Since then he has promised delivery many times.  Since then its been then the same story I he would promise me a delivery date and time and never show up.
-  I have saved every text and voicemail, from the beginning we didn't engage in name calling threats.  After some time I would say I'm sick of the lies, he would say he is not lying.  During several conversations he stated he was having issues with other customers and would get me done that '"he will deliver the nicest machine I've ever laid my eyes on"  He said some of these over customers were calling him every name in the book and that I was a good man cause I wouldn't engage in that.  I was frustrated which he understood, he has acknowledged this in texts I would be happy to post every text and you can see this it was attempted to keep this civil.  
- Finally in early January I told him I was getting fed up that I have no choice but to sue Dave McDonald and McDonald Vending.  Dave said it will never go to court that I will get my machine.  Same thing over and over Dave would promise delivery never show up.   
- When I wrote my original post of Ripoff Report I posted the facts about my deal with Dave McDonald ( McDonald Vending ).  I also said he is a liar which has infuriated him.  Yesterday I looked up the definition on liar ~ : a person who tells lies - Merriam -Webster.  I also looked lies  ~ 1) a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive 2) an inaccurate or false statement - Merriam Webster.  I think calling Dave a liar is justified based on facts the 40+ promised deliveries.  I have voice mails from him saying this is completely his fault and he will make right.
- Our original court date was set for 4/12/11, Dave said time and time again it will never go to court.  On 4/10 Dave and I spoke he said he just got off the phone with his lawyer that I would get my machine today.  This was around 130-200pm, he said he had several things to do that I was 2 on the list and it would get done that night.  On my way home from work that night at 400-415 PM I called Dave and said if the issue is that he doesn't have the machine I would take an acceptable substitute or I would even be willing to take a machine of higher value and pay the difference that I was willing to help him anyway I could.  He said he really appreciated this that I'm a "good man".  I have tired I have gone beyond what is required to help this transaction......  Guess what on 4/10 delivery was never made as promised, this was after he claimed he talked to his lawyer and that I would get the machine he owes me.  On 4/11 I spoke again that he needs me to call off my lawyer that he needs till the end of the week, I said I cant do that based on how many times he has lied to my over the past many months.  End of the week came and guess what no machine, I called and said to stop the lying and BS.  That is when he said "my problem is I don't trust him" how messed up is that statement.  He also said he doesn't have the machine in my store, it's been sitting for six months for him to deliver the machine I bought and take a way the machine in my store.  How messed up when the thief blames the victim.
- Yesterday Dave posted he would delivery my machine anytime within 48hrs all I need to do is ask him.  I have every text and voicemail, I can prove he has been asked countless times and has promised to deliver 40+ times.  Dave claimed he doesn't have the machine in my store..... it's because he has never come and picked up.  I texted him last night... that he keeps insisting he is not a liar that he will delivery my machine in 48hrs as per his post on Ripoff Report .... I said make it happen, on 5/4/11 PM it will be 48hrs from Dave stating he is not a liar and will deliver the machine I paid for over six months ago, the machine he has promised to deliver over 40times has not been delivered that he doesn't have the machine in my store cause he has never picked it up it sitting in my store waiting for him.  I have held up to my end, I pre-paid him up front on 10/28/11 at 630pm, every time I said I would meet him I was there waiting.  I have countless texts messages and voicemails from him stating its his fault and he will make right.
-If anybody else has dealt with Dave McDonald or McDonald Vending and has been un happy with his service, been misled only to be refunded down the road, or if you have any open issues, even if issue is resolved he has a pattern of misleading people and his intent of the transaction email me at the fact he has so many BBB complaints and so many customers where he has misrepresented, all that needs to happen is all these people to come together and got the states attorney and they will prosecute him.  It's important to keep emotion out of this and only cite facts and hopefully have evidence to back it up.  If a few people come together this will end.  A co-worker of mine had a similar issue and he got over victims to come together.... the guy is now in jail, I have access to recourses with someone who has dealt with similar issue and taken it all the way.

owner who is being wronged !

AUTHOR: david r mcdonald mcdonald vending v - (United States of America)

JC Anderson Enterprises, an Illinois Corporation, at 17w610 14th St. Oakbrook Terrace, Il 60181 AKA Jason Anderson 1108 Chadwick Ct. Aurora, Il 60501.

Mr. Anderson has made a $500.00 deposit on a National 474 that we have attempted to deliver and he has never shown up.

The Genesis Combo is in place functioning in his laundraumat and that is my machine as it is part of this transaction.

We offered refund to his attorney and he wants the vending machine.

Now I have been served with a summons and complaint for the refund that was offered to him and he declined it as he wanted vending machine.

He makes reference to my mother who works for me who has been nothing but kind to him although Jason's wife is quite an evil person with a huge mouth.  Unfortunate Jason seems to be a great guy.

Simple resolution here if he wants machine give me a date and time with 48 hour notice day or night and we will deliver national 474 and help him set it up and we can pick up combo.

No contact we will show up in court and issue full refund as we offered prior.

We are truly sorry but this unfortunate problem is not totally us.  Jason Anderson feels that the way to correct his problems is to fall under the spell of a child names Patrick McGinty who continues to slander me and this has nothing to do with him,

ALl of you write this a certain way and try to show a  pattern and this is a simple business transaction that could be fixed with simple communication!

Unlike everyone else, my name is david r mcdonald

further being called a thief should make jason quite liable in my book.  He also is a name calling child with a big mouth wife!   LETS FIX THIS JASON SO YOU CAN STOP SLANDERING ME!
