*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Jerry Koch, you can't write fraudulent checks, steal vehicles and personal belongings, scream in an office of employment and have fraud escrow docs signed and stay employed
I worked for Sean and I've been chasing him for my pay for months now and ended up filing a small claims action against him. Sean is an absolute nightmare to deal with, the abuse I've endured from his harrassing texts, emails and phone calls are far beyond anything normal for behavior, he claims my sales were done fraudulently and that I was involved in wire fraud to name a few reasons he says he doesn't have to pay me - all of it bogus.
This is a guy that has used customers boats on multiple occassions for his personal enjoyment all unauthorised, a few customers caught him and were absolutely livid - one he had to pay the owner for a day charter to avoid legal action. He took a new girlfreind out in a small 24' boat during a small craft warning - apparently it was a harrowing experience, someone could have got hurt, the boat was left half tied up, with equipment strewn all over, he has absolutely no respect for other peoples property.
Listing Agreements boat brokers use authorize a broker to sell a boat for a specified price, Sean constantly advertises much lower prices than what is agreed to then brow beats clients into accepting lower offers - one client left his Registration signed as the seller of the boat and trailer - that was to be held in trust - as he was leaving for the winter for someplace warmer.
Sean low balled the advertising and sold the boat in two days at a 30% discount from the agreed asking price, then sent the seller a check for a little over half - that is about as unethical as it gets! Then he tells me my listing agreement on that boat was a fraud so in his mind he doesn't have to pay. My day in court is coming.
