Complaint Review: Waukegan Yacht Services
Waukegan Yacht Services Larry Walker, Roger Baske Sold sailboat to me without proper title, can not title it, they won't give refund. Don't trust them. Waukegan, Illinois
*Author of original report: Problems Resolved, Roger is good guy again.
In May 2012, Roger and I completed paperwork to do what Roger called a "double title transfer" with the State of Illinois and the Illinois DNR I wrote checks to pay the $500 RUT-7 tax and the registration fees ($500 +$82). Roger said he sent these in. When I approached Roger about this in September 2012, he said that there were problems, he was vague, waived me off. Subsequently, he regularly gave me excuses that the DNR is three months behind. Problem is that he had using this excuse for 10 months. I sent three letters to Larry Walker, the owner of WYS, requesting either a title or a refund. My attorney sent two letters, as this is a violation of Illinois Universal Commerce Code. A merchantable title must be provided. Larry Walker accused me of threatening him, and Roger Baske and Larry Walker have become unavailable. Now, March 2013, another year later, I must seek legal remedy.
These guys are both crooks. Roger knew that there was a problem with this title as he told me in frustration that he had sold it once before (obviously returned). Roger is a delightful gregarious and knowledgeable guy. He claims to be religious too. But in reality, he appears to be a real smooth con man. Larry Walker is culpable as the owner, but he does not care to do the right thing on this. He is also not honest. I thought that I would not have to worry about title issues as dealing with an established business. But obviously I am wrong and I have become the latest sucker. So much for trusting people. Do not trust these guys for anything.
