Troy Savoie of TS Custom Leather ripped me off
Well it has been over 9 months and Troy still has not done my order. I contacted Troy finally two months ago and he was very apologetic as usual and agreed that if he could not have the order done by June 30 he would let me know. Well that is the last time I've heard from him. He will not answer my emails or answer his phone.
I have to admit that I am to trusting a person. I guess it is my fault Troy is a thief. I paid him $1100 up front to do a job. He had 100% feedback on ebay and he was a featured vendor on VentureRiders. I talked with him over a half hour, Troy has a gift for gab. He talked me out of $1100.
You know people work hard for their money and people like Troy sit back and talk you out of it and do absolutely nothing to earn your money. I could go down to Cocoa, Fl. and try to get a judge to issue a warrant for thief by conversion but since I sent him the money who knows if a judge would agree with me or not. I could spend $175 and file a small claims suit against him and then travel down there for the hearing and the travel back down there for the trial. I've been told traveling expenses and room and board are not reimbursable. So there is a lot of the $1100 eat up and then the time issue. It is just not worth it. I can sleep at night knowing I have never taken advantage of another person I don't think Troy can say the same thing.
I highly advise everyone to not do business with Troy Savoie! I have learned a very good lesson though, never never pay a complete stranger before the work is done I don't care how many great references he has.
I hope this helps anyone in the future who was contemplating doing business with Troy.
