So here's what transpired over the past 2 weeks, I'll try to keep it short. A big construction company world wide, we'll call AAA Construction is in Connecticut doing a job and they need some welders and plasma cutters and other stuff associated with welding. They have an account with us. Someone in our customer service center takes a call from them, they are looking for a plasma cutter $1890.00, the person calls me and asks if he can send a guy over to pick it up, I say sure. Guy comes in and gets it on 2-25. The ticket the customer service person does has a shipping address somewhere in Arizona, I don't pay that much attention of it because there's no cylinders on the ticket , we need to track them. Over the next couple of weeks he buys 3 more welders from me. He brought me a DD coffee each time! :D

He then decides he wants to change companies for tanks, he uses Airgas now, (Big mistake). Now that we have cylinders involved, I have to set up a separate account so we can track the cylinders and how many they have on site. I get the jobs address, it's in Plainfield CT. I fill out all the paperwork and send in to be set up. I get an email back saying it was rejected. :? I make a phone call and ask why, the girl tells me that another account or job site I used to copy info has been sent to collections? I say what? They are using this account number now that has a 125K credit limit on it and they spent 15K in la little over 2 weeks. Now I'm getting suspicious. I call my salesman and tell him to take a ride by this jobsite. As you can probably see where this is going, there's no jobsite. I then call AAA Construction and talk to someone in HR and ask if they have an employee by this name, NO. We've been scammed to the tune of $10,300. Our Warwick RI store was also scammed from the same guy for $2000 on another machine. Everything looked legit from this guy, he gave out po numbers with each order too. Now I'm pissed, he has another machine on order and is coming to pick it up on Tuesday.... Running out of time, to be continued :P Reminds me of Egypt :lol:

You can’t trust anyone anymore. Do the police plan on being there when he comes to pick up?
