Complaint Review: SellYourBoatNow
Unknown As Its A Secret
- Category: Consumer Services
THE POOR DECISION YOU MADE, IN CHOOSING NOT TO TAKE ACTION AND GET YOUR BOAT ONTO THIS WEBSITE, IS GOING TO COST YOU A FORTUNE!
IN SPITE OF WHAT YOU THINK, YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL OF THE SALE OF YOUR BOAT, AND THE TIME LINE THAT WORKS ON. THE BUYERS ARE! THEY DO NOT WAIT FOR YOU, AND PLAY BY YOUR RULES. YOU ARE TO PLAY BY THEIRS, OR YOU WILL NEVER SELL YOUR BOAT!
BE ADVISED THAT CLASSIFIEDS AND BROKERS ALL AVERAGE WELL OVER A YEAR TO SELL ANY USED BOAT. THAT MEANS YOU CAN EXPECT TO SPEND THOUSANDS IN EITHER CLASSIFIED ADS OR BROKER COMMISSIONS WHILE DESPERATELY TRYING TO SELL YOUR BOAT. YOU CAN ALSO EXPECT TO GET FRUSTRATED WITH HOW LONG IT IS TAKING TO SELL, AND BE TEMPTED TO LOWER YOUR ASKING PRICE. LOWERING YOUR PRICE WILL COST YOUR HUNDREDS OR THOUSANDS MORE!
HAD YOU SIMPLY REMITTED PAYMENT THROUGH THE PAYPAL INVOICE WE SENT YOU, YOU WOULD HAVE HAD THE BOAT SOLD EASILY, AND AFFORDABLY!
YOU HAVE 2 WAYS TO RECTIFY THIS EXPENSIVE ERROR:
1) REMIT PAYMENT THROUGH PAYPAL (PAYPAL TAKES ALL MAJOR CREDIT AND DEBIT CARDS)
2) CALL 1-866-357-5042 AND REMIT PAYMENT VIA TELEPHONE USING A MAJOR CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD

*** In addition They attempted to seek payment for services Thru my PayPal account***
Which I canceled, they again resent the same message. I not so politely told them to F off as I believe them to not be on the level and also trying to be paid for something I did not authorize nor ask for.
They then sent the following response:
Dear Sir or Madam:
RE: Your email notifying us that you believe our website to be a scam and have "taken appropriate action"/reported it as such
It is against U.S law to damage a company or individuals reputation in the community with a reckless disregard for the truth. It is quite well documented over this company's 5 (Five) year clean business history, that this company is doing legitimate business. Your belief that this company is an illegitimate company, does not make it so. Furthermore, hundreds of current and satisfied customers, would strongly disagree with you.
It is also against U.S law to use a companies copyrighted name in published/written/broadcast content without permission to do so.
Neither of the above offenses are protected "free speech" under the 1st Amendment of the U.S Constitution.
Any harmful written content authored with your involvement appearing anywhere in print - will be considered malicious business interference, and defamation. Any broadcast content in any media, created with any involvement by you, will be considered the same. Any complaints made by you to any agency or organizations (including the BBB), that result in any limitation on our ability to conduct business, will also be considered legally actionable. Likewise, any activities/complaints/reports written or stated to any businesses we are regularly involved with in our commerce, will result in swift and strong legal action against you. Likewise, any suit you commence will result in a counter suit.
Should we become aware of you participating in any of the above activities, legal remedies will be pursued
immediately and forcefully.
You are also to refrain from authoring and/or broadcasting any partial reference to this company. Any you write will be presumed to have been designed to lead the general public to the conclusion that you are referring to this company. This means we will litigate against you if you write or broadcast even a portion of this company's name, at any time, anywhere.
All of your contact information will remain on file, should it become necessary to take legal action against you.
Should you violate this order, this company will also commence a civil action against the print/internet/or broadcast outlet you utilized to carry out your malicious interference and defamation. This department will also offer the print/internet/or broadcast outlet you utilized to damage this company the opportunity to enjoin our civil and/or criminal action against you.
Your letter today will serve as proof to any Judge in the United States of the malicious nature of your intent. Should it become necessary, we will obtain jurisdiction over you in any of the 50 U.S States in which you reside. If necessary, we will pursue a court order to collect sizable monetary damages from you. If you do not have sufficient assets to satisfy the monetary judgment we will be awarded, we will get a court order to garnish your future wages.

RE: Your allegation that we have committed "larceny" by sending you a PayPal invoice.
We advise that before making such allegations, you learn yourself on the law.
No one at any time accessed your PayPal account and/or committed larceny. The PayPal system is designed to allow companies to send invoices requesting payment to customers that contact Paypal verified merchants with service requests or inquiries (as you did). Your PayPal account was not charged or accessed in any way. We strongly suggest you call PayPal themselves and have them educate you as to the workings of their system.
Additionally, you were notified earlier of pending legal action against you, should you fail to adhere to this departments notice to cease contact with this company. We are in receipt of a new email from you. Your latest email demonstrates a failure to comply with our demand. As a result of your violation of our order, we are now prepared to initiate a civil action against you.
Should it become necessary, we will obtain jurisdiction over you in any of the 50 U.S States in which you reside. If necessary, we will pursue a court order to collect sizable monetary damages from you. If you do not have sufficient assets to satisfy the monetary judgment we will be awarded, we will get a court order to garnish your future wages. We advise that you have your attorney contact this office immediately.
You are not to make any further direct contact with this company. Direct contact by you will not be accepted or responded to. Direct contact by you will be filed and used against you in court.
Let us also remind you that any written content authored by you (or with any collaboration from you), appearing anywhere in print - will be considered malicious business interference, and defamation. Any broadcast content in any media produced with your involvement will be considered the same. Any complaints made by you to any organization (including the BBB), that result in any limitation on our ability to conduct business, will also be considered legally actionable. Should we become aware of your participation in any of these activities, legal remedies will be pursued.
Your prior email/s will serve as continued proof to any judge in the United States of the malicious nature of your intent.
This will serve as your final warning.

As I never contacted them contrary to what they say and I feel had I not caught it and authorized it by mistake they would have indeed charged me for services I never utilized nor asked for. So I'm still waiting to hear from thier lawyers, Lastly last time I checked my map I was indeed in the USA so where do they thing they are that they can threaten my into not reporting them to any government agencies or Better Business Bureau's, because IMHO they need to cease and desist forthwith.
So that's it. straight out there we should all beware of companies that act like this.
Some others have seen through their attempts to silence complaints and have gone through with posting one guy complaint was rearing a possible speeding ticket fix another complaint was something about their inability to actually sell his boat both come down to producing a positive result that they were paid for. You be the judge, I mean I believe they may have a toll free number but I was unable to actually locate a mailing address so remember buyer beware.
If your here illegally your the enemy
