Chris Brown intentiallally overcharged our company for a load of used shoes and purses.  He requested prepayment for the load, in which he charged us for 22 pallets of used shoes and 22 pallets of used purses (used shoes are far more expensive then used purses).  The load only contained 10 pallets of shoes and the rest were purses. 

Chris owes us over $4,000 for funds he over charged us.  Chris is "requiring" us to accept a credit from him, essentially trying to force us to purchase another load (in which he will overcharge us for again).  We've already learned that Chris is dishonest and we will not be purchasing more product from him again.  He owes us a refund of what he overcharged us.  We are currently pursuing him via collection and then in a lawsuit if the funds are not returned.  Please be aware of 1971 Associates LLC. shady business practices.  

The interesting thing is, he was ust complaining about a supplier ripping him off, and now he is doing the ripping off.

Do Not Believe This Guy!!! SCAMMER!!!

AUTHOR: Daniel - ()

In response to Chris's false claim, he CLEARLY sent my accounting team a note on June 26, 2018 at 12:22pm (EST) stating that he could not apply a previous credit to the load in question.  I did not catch this in time, or we would not have done business a 2nd time.  DO NOT believe that he would continue to roll credit for anyone.  Besides that, you cannot legally force someone to continue to purchase from you.  I clearly told him these were only trial loads, because we had not done business with him in the past.  

He now owes us for credit from 1 load and overpayment from a 2nd load.  Anyone who reads this will understand that we are rightfully owed the balance.  The quality of product Chris was selling us is low grade, but he was telling us the product was higher grade and charging for higher grade.  I told Chris we would not be FORCED into purchasing additional low grade loads at high prices. 

He initially wouldn't reply to my calls, emails, whatsapp messages, and text.  But weeks later, he replied stating he was working on our issue.  After several replies of the same, he stopped communication.

Dishonest Claim on 1971 Associates regarding ised shoes.

AUTHOR: Christopher - (United States)

 Your company purchased a load of used shoes per ou company policy any load that is short in weight will be credited on the next load. I have offered to give you another shoe load to help offset the shortage in weight. Furthermore on all purchase orders all loads are sold as is as ot clearly states on the invoice.

Seller is not responsible for quality concerns or weight issues which is clearly stated in invoice. I went above and beyond to resolve this and am willing to give you another load. What more can you ask for. We are not a shady business and move loads weekly with no problems of the 100's of containers moved your the only one with an issue which I have clearly offered to resolve.
