Went to Dave McDonald's "shop" and was given a "complete Broadway show" now that I have 20/20 hindsight.  Hook line and sinker I fell for a great deal.  Deal becomes even better, the more machines you buy.  Then if you pay full amount another $400.00 was taken off.  Promises to have them ready, free delivery and coffee machine still loaded from test runs. Always an excuse, totally delusional and apparently re-selling non-existant vending machines over and over and over again. Here is some of the routine. Does this sound familiar to you also? :  Married to the business, works 7 days a week, nicest guy in the world, mentions daughters thru-out the sale, dials HIS cell phone and lets you speak to his satisfied customer, bashes another vending company saying they have bad reputation (when it really is McDonald Vending), part missing have to order, snow delay, nicest guy in the world, over committed to customers can't make it, vending machines ready and looking good just need an appt to deliver, nicest guy in the world.  We had 4 canceled deliveries and too many numerous excuses to list here. Never contacts you to cancel, just wouldn't show. Nicest guy in the world and doesn't want to stress anyone, just wants to work it out. (Dave, am I getting this all correctly?) oh wait, yes I am! I just have to look at my emails and text messages to have all the wording, verbatim!  If he would put as much effort into vending machine business as he does scamming and fleeing and never following thru...he would have a terrific business.  I understand he is renting business location monthly so I am pretty sure he will have another address and different phone number soon.  I found 3 addresses and 3 phone numbers already on him.  I am not sure why he is allowed to keep scamming and stealing money and not be in jail.  If you have had any of these problems and have lost money to McDonald Vending or Value Vending with Dave McDonald, please do not just think you have lost money.  Please file with State's Attorney's office and file a police report so we can, as a group, end this vicious circle of scamming!

Per Dave McDonald's request

AUTHOR: justANOTHERvictim - (United States of America)

Sunday March 4th, 2012.... per Dave McDonald's request... I was asked to "amend" this ripoff report to state that it was not McDonald Vending or Value Vending that scammed me/ ripped me was only Dave McDonald.  My check was payable to Dave McDonald while we were at McDonald Vending shop with his white McDonald vending truck in the parking lot on Feb 11, 2012.  So I will follow thru with his request and let you know that it was only Dave McDonald that scammed me and ripped me off.  Hopefully this will settle Dave McDonald down so he won't have to spend his life texting and voice mailing my cell.  Sunday March 4th, 2012  Voice Mails   8:27 am   8:31 am   8:46 am    10:55 am   11:06 am   1:36 pm.  Text messages on Sunday March 4th, 2012 were  5:37 pm   1:50 pm    12:53 pm   12:47 pm.  Dave, if it doesn't bother sure are putting a lot of time into calling and texting.  I have now followed thru with your request.  Please follow thru with your refund.   I will gladly post that I was refunded once it happens, once the check clears and I have my full refund.  Until then.... the facts stay here for others to see the information and know to stay clear of you. Until then Dave, hold your threats.  You do not need to keep calling me and texting me to threaten me.  Do the refund, don't call me, don't text me.  Follow thru with your refund.(bank check only or money order)
