Great to hear from you! It?s been over two months since I flew out to Maryland to meet you at my abandoned home so you could resume moving it. But of course you did not show up, did not return phone calls, nor send me the subsequent agreed upon partial refund. We have a few things to talk about.
Again, the SYNOPSIS: I paid you an $8800 down payment to move my home from MA to CA. It got as far as Maryland, where it has sat abandoned for 6 months. You will not complete the move and refuse to refund any of my money.
Now allow me to expose the lies you posted a few weeks ago. The story about this driver who pulled my home from MA to MD and lied about it?s whereabouts is a half truth at best. I guess you never thought I would meet Warren McKeel, the man you subcontracted to move my home to a truck stop in Maryland. From the beginning you hired him to move my home to Maryland and leave it. Warren sent me the bill of lading and emails between the two of you to prove this. You agreed to pay him about $2800, but he has not seen one red cent from you. I guess this is what you mean by ?I fired him?. You complain about how much this move has cost you, even boast you earned the money I paid you, but this move has cost you nothing!! You took my $8800 and have done nothing but arrange to have my home abandoned 3000 miles away from where it is supposed to be. This is why I called you a criminal, and I am sure most people reading this would agree. Mr. McKeel is very eager to talk to you.
You also imply that I ?fired? you immediately after you abandoned my home. Not true. The first time I said I did not want you to touch my home was 13 July, a full 3 months after my home left MA. Even after horrible service I displayed the patience of a saint and agreed to give you a few more chances, and of course you failed. This is why my home sat 3000 miles from me for 6 months. Our contract states my home was due in CA by 20 March. It is a bit late.
You reference some crazy ?stipulations? I was demanding from you. The only stipulation I ever held you to was for you to get my home to CA, i.e. fulfill our contract. I did not pay you to move my home to Maryland. You could have moved my home from Maryland to CA as agreed in the contract at any time. There is no snow May through September.
Every response Mr. Raines posts is simply an effort to guarantee he has future ?customers? to take advantage of.
If anyone still has any doubts that Alfie Raines? business practices, all you have to do is make a few phone calls. First call the Benton, TN police Department and talk to Detective Ken Rittenaur (423-338-5733 x306). He has known about Mr. Raines for a long time and has a list of hundreds of victims. Alfie has been ripping people off for 20 years, this is about all he does. He learned how to do it from his father who did it for years. Now Alfie is teaching his son how to get a lifetime of free money. This is all information directly from the police department. Talk to just about any lawyer in Cleveland, TN. They are familiar with him. Mr. Raines knows our laws concerning white collar crime are basically ineffective.
I don?t feel bad at all posting all this. Scott Allen Raines has stolen $10,000 dollars from me. I feel it is my duty to warn you.
