“Vic” advertised a seadoo for sale on Kijiji (July 2020) and claimed it was “Professionally rebuilt”. He brought the ski to me and told me he was a Bombardier certified mechanic and promised me the machine was in excellent working condition.
He also offered to provide prompt service if I ever had any issues with it. I expressed interest in a second machine and double trailer. I made full payment on the first machine and put a deposit ($2500) on the second machine and a double trailer.
He has never delivered the second SeaDoo or trailer. In addition, I have had numerous issues with the first machine.
I have filed a police report in Hamilton and will be taking him to small claims court. If the police refuse to press charges, I will be pressing Fraud charges through a Justice of The Peace. I likely won’t get my money back, but we have to try to stop this guy and make things more complicated…Feel free to email me at [email protected].
My Incident Report with the Hamilton Police is #20686475. I will be sharing on various Facebook SeaDoo Groups and Seadooforum.com. I encourage others to do the same. I am considering options to notify/pressure legitimate businesses who do business with this guy to blackball him.
In addition to all the Fraud reports, you can have some fun reading about his famous partner in crime in Florida (search Melinda Macgillivray).
Many thanks to those who have shared info before me… just wish I had it before I encountered this slimeball.
