Amy

I recall Amy adding to one of these posts a fiery comment on why she would charge for delivery of a trailer. I think she was very upset because one of the forum members had shared with the rest of us her prices.

I am sorry to report I saw a negative response on another forum about "TrulyVintageTrailers". It mentioned a $700. amount owed by them to another individual. The thread was removed because it was against that forum's rules. It did make me wonder, as I had tried to contact them on a trailer for sale with no answer. Guess I asked too many questions...

Having weighed all the evidence presented I would say that the odds are very good that, "YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMED!"
It is my hope that you used either a bank or postal money order, and that you have the copies of them.
Do us all a big favor and go get 'em. It would seem that these folks are out to take advantage of everyone. If as you say they are dodging your calls and then hanging up when they find it's you on the line, then they really are intent on scaming you.
Most folks will not persist when they loose a deposit. Many times this is just a matter of embarasment on the buyers part.
Let us know how this works out.
And when it works out you might want to consider the "Dumb A** of the month" thread. (just kidding, just kidding) Good luck.

Overlander63,

just curious why his account was removed from the forums?? Was it removed on his request? Don´t mind not to answer if the reason is not for public, but it might bring some light into the whole thing in this thread...

Thanks

Bjoern,

The moderators on occasion have to suspend or ban accounts when the people misuse them. Various scenarios apply, failure to heed warnings on controversial subjects, flaming, personal attacks, improper use of the PM system and Spam are the main reasons. We (the moderation team) try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt but when someone doesn't get it and continues to misbehave their account can and will be suspended, if they attempt to sign up under another name it will be banned too. We take the "be nice" portion of our rules very seriously. And in about 99.99% of the cases people on this forum do just that. But there is always that .01%

Aaron

Oldbaggy,

I have significant experience investigating this type of activity. Depending on the exact circumstances, you may or may not have a criminal complaint. If there is, it may be prosecutable in your jurisidiction... again... depending upon the exact circumstances and whether or not you can convince your local cops, prosecutor, and/or attorney that a crime (if applicable) or action that amounts to a civil tort occurred in your jurisdiction. If you'd like, I'll be happy to give you some help in how to go about following this up if you PM me.

Roger

Seems to be a business with them.

I guess I'm lucky. I only gave them a deposit- a decent one, but they were supposed to bring the trailer to me, then went back and forth, then said I had to pay it all up front before they left. Inconsistency in their arrangements, and they contradicted themselves everyday. I think they just said what was necessary to get the deposit.

The problem is that they're far away, I'm off work from an injury for an indefinite time, and am in no shape to go chasing them- the law works for them- I'd have to go file in Ohio. This one will get written off to stupidity and trusting the wrong people- food for the "Baby Deva" fund. They pumped that "Baby Deva" at me like a weapon.

Please folks- I'm not sure why I wasn't warned enough about these thieves, but there should be a way to support the unknowing buyer who wants to get into an Airstream by warning us about people like Truly, Centers, Jarzabek and whatever other name they have come up with. They've ripped off others, there is no way they can claim they are legit, or sue for slander when people warn about them. Myself and these others- Karen and Lynn and who knows what others have been victimized- have to be protected, warned...

Seems like everywhere they go, they get into fights for charging too much for shipping, or scamming. Confrontational and combative in nature- I hope Karma gets them.

I have to say thanks to all you nice people who tried to give me good advice here- its appreciated.

oldbaggy - the problem is unless we've got personal experience with these or any folks it's all conjecture. How to maintain a civil forum and also have debates about the credibility of certain members just seems to me to be a difficult if not impossible thing. I have been on other forums where one person comes on with a statement, the other person comes back at them, and others get involved trying their best to mediate, and it becomes a nightmare for all concerned. To our forum founders and moderators significant credit they do not allow this to happen here and it is what makes this such a great forum.

I agree it would be great if there was a place to go to check on the credibility of a vendor or any seller but what a legal and logistical nightmare that would be - and in many cases the buyer can just as easily be the problem, so then how to track that. I guess all a person can do is to post a mail on each of the many forums that they are interested in acquiring a product from such a person/vendor and if anyone is aware of why they shouldn't please send a personal email with some details. I don't know of any other way.

You have an opportunity here to go to the post office and make them aware of what has transpired so at least the things you can do with your limited mobility you should consider doing. Often less than credible vendors rely on people's willingness to let a deposit go and just not be bothered with all the follow up it takes to have them exposed. If you just let it go then it leaves the next person exposed. Kinda crappy eh ?(my Canuck'ness coming out )

Good luck with this - it's never fun being taken advantage of no matter what or how small it is - but it's how you react that will make the difference.

Barry
