Hi guys-
I'm feeling a little lucky-I talked with this guy, too.  I was serious about
buying a motor--but luckily he told me he thought he had another buyer--and
I found a local wrecked car and bought it. [ad in Mktplace]  He contacted me
later and said the deal fell through.  But I cannot comment on his alleged
stiffings.  Until I/we know his story it's hard to say.  Recently at work I
contacted a potential client I had been trying to work with, we had been
talking for a month or so last year when suddenly he stopped returning my
calls.  Well, I got back in touch with him last week and he had a kidney
transplant.  He had been on the list for two years when they called him up
in November-they said they had a kidney for him.  That explains why he
"disappeared" for a couple months.  Sometimes you never what's going on.
That doesn't help the guys who have been stiffed, tho.
