I can’t believe people are still being sucked in by this guy and that he continues to get away with it. I have warned everyone about him and still he turns up at these powerboat events. Who let him into Cowes for God’s sake?
We had a huge problem with him in more ways than one in the Round Britain Race. I had agreed for him to supply the Silver Plate Trophies which amounted to many thousands of pounds. He wanted cash but I refused to pay him until the goods were delivered and then only on an Invoice.
Six months later I had the company who made them come onto me saying that he had told them that he couldn’t pay them as I hadn’t paid him! Fortunately I had got him to sign a proper receipted Invoice saying he had been paid in full and sent them a copy. Can you imagine what would have happened if I had just paid him in cash with no receipt?
Eventually the Police came round to take a statement, they had had dealings with him before and they were indeed horror stories but I never heard the result of the Court case. This man is VERY bad news.
By the way Ben, the Police told me all about that case. He has never repaid that man his money. So much for Justice. I tell you what, one day he is going to do the wrong thing to the wrong man and then he is going to get bounced and hard!!
