i had posted a add on a web site called find a crew
its a web site that captains and crew and find boat owners that have deliverys to do
chris asked me to pay 12.000 USD and 4.000USD down it took me a couple of months to get the money together but i did and i paid him 7.000USD 4 to his wells fargo bank account 3.000 to paypal account to get started
a week later he picked up the pay pal money and called a girl on my crew but she missed it and he did not call me
3 weeks went by with no word so so when week three came i called and called and email
when he answered he said my boat was poopy and he took poops bigger than me and all kinds of abuse
i told him i wanted my money back he has said for over a month he will pay but will not
i trusted him and he has stolen from me i have more documents but the site won't let me load it

There you go again...whine whine whine...Hard to spend your money when at sea....Just look at your emails to everyone and see how you go off on innocent people trusting YOU and how you whine and threaten...Like it really makes you look RESPECTABLE....Your money is getting back to you so you can go on with the next one to fool...How much did your great and only friend in Hawaii Mike pay you back??...Like your lovely boat, you need a lot of work to become someone of stature in life....
P.S. Learn how to spell and put a coherent sentence together, you said you are educated....
It seems to be harder than one thinks to find someone to delivery a boat isn't it Mate! I told you I had others to do and you think because you finally got your [censored] together on a deposit you need to be done right away??? Doesn't work like that in the real world...If you had your money together in August when you were a nicer person things might have happened on time...Look at your emails you send and see why your world is the way it is for you Mate.
