Since original thread was closed I will reply here.
"From my lofty view point of not really giving a shit and the fact that I will likely never order from CWI it sounds to me like both parties bear some responsibility for this kerfluffle.
To the OP this is not really an "in the public interest" discussion any more. Sorry you had some troubles, but people who don't post the whole story lose credibility with me. "
1. Where do I bear any responsibility - period. I befriended the guy and no matter how patient or understanding of blatant BS there comes a time that even the meek become mighty.
2. I basically posted relevant information, but I was NOT about to disclose all - sorry. Stupid once shame on me.
The update is I was just ordered a default judgment against them and a lien has been placed on their property in COOS County.
I thought this was a forum to discuss all matters relating to gear, the good bad and UGLY. If perhaps I saw a post such as mine I would have thought twice. Unfortunately I did not, but there has been a few replies since then on various forums including here that show similar circumstances.
If this post offends the moderators then I guess it will be locked down also.
But that would be an injustice to the community that deserves ALL knowledge.
