On May 23/ 2008, I purchased a web site called "www.Ottawa Skilled Trades.com, from Matt Lapierre of Ridgegold Marketing Inc. in Ottawa .
The agreed upon selling price was $3500 plus $450 for 3 months web hosting for a total of $3950cdn. I must have been thinking about some thing else because I inadvertantly wrote $4950 0n the cheque which Matt Lapierre ( Executive Director ) of Ridgegold Marketing cashed .
I noticed a discrepencie on my account, and the cancelled cheque proved that I had overpayed $ 1000. I informed Matt Lapierre of the mistake, and he said he would send me out the $1000 refund in a couple of days .
Days turned into weeks and he said he would pay the interest, since it was money that I borrowed on my line of credit .
After a month, I got fed up with him Lying to me that the cheques in the mail, so I told him I wanted all the money back($4950)He said he couldn't give me the money back, but he could re sell the web site for $7500.
I said ok to re sell it. A week or 2 later he said he had a buyer and it should only take a couple of days to draw up the new contract and obtain the funds .After days turned into weeks, he kept inventing new excuses as to why the deal is still not done.
He then stopped answering my repeated phone calls and emails, and the office and toll free numbers were a useless front because there was never
any body there to answer the phones!
It is now 3 months down the road, and still no action or communication! I have decided to sell the web site on my own and sue him in small claims court, and make his life as miserable as he has made mine.( Through any and all forms of media and goverment bodies )
