    BBB is great if the company is registered with them other wise it is like trying to find a light swich in the dark. Bisinesses pay to be a member and most times a shady person would not waste their time unless they want a name for themselves or are rather large.

    BBB is a waste in most cases, however you could get lucky /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: RIPPED OFF DON\'T BUY FROM THIS GUY

    Fred was a great guy. I bought from him several years ago. He had some serious medical conditions and most of the stuff was made by his employees. They have a huge shop. I went and picked my bumper there. They should answer unless he has moved or is no longer there. I don't know. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Re: RIPPED OFF DON\'T BUY FROM THIS GUY

    Okay. Update I called and Fred HIMSELF picked up the phone and I talked with him a few minutes. Everything is still in place but he has some serious heart problems and has been in and out of the Hospital. He is still making bumpers. So give him a call and be patient. I super nice guy. He makes some nice bumpers. They don't make this stuff overnight you know.

    I now live right down the road from Madison, in Huntsville. I will have to take a drive by there and see whats up. I have also talked with him in the past, and he was cool.

    You may live near there but my understanding of Fred's priamary buisness is your going to have some high powered artillery pointed at you till your identified and Fred say's it's ok.

    Look at the buisness name and think just what that might mean and understand some of his clientel piss away more money a day then your going to make the next 10 years. Then think about the satate of the world for a second and what sort of buisness his primary company may be dion right now.

    Yes Fred needs to keep in contact with folks an let them know whats going on if agreed dates are going to be missed but being a jerk to him may not be the best approach. Some how I think some of your atempts to contact him may have been hot and honestly I can understand being pissed by $500 beans but try a more tactful approach. I hang up on people that get hot with me two words into a call. I don't have the patience for it nor do I need my blood pressure going through the roof.
