Thought A Speeding Ticket Was Bad, Try A Felony..

Sun Jul 16, 2006 1:48 am

Ok, so I got a very rude wake up today. The police, from three different departments (Sheriff, Orinda, Walnut Creek) in order from smallest to biggest. I'm still in my boxers and wanted my Cops debut to be in style so I asked to change into something else prior to talking. I saw the papers in the Officer's hands and knew exactly what it was about. About 5 months ago I had ordered two suits from a local tailor. The bill had come up to just around $4500 for the two items. Well, when it came due to pick up my suits my wallet had been taken (a police report had been filed) and the only credit cards I had were in the name of my father who had been the primary on the account (they send out the primary and then any additional card holders there after).

Because the account was new again the credit limit had been set at $5,000.00 and due to the outstanding balance I opted to purchase only one and pick the next one up in the following weeks, an agreement that the owner had no contest to. Well I guess they were having issues with my card (which was in my father's name) as he had yet to add me as an authorized signer. So we sat on the phone for probably 15-20min's getting it sorted out and then when all was said and done, I had left with one suit. Now at this point they had one of my suits (that I had already purchased a few months prior) and one of the new ones that was getting tailored.

About a week later I was running late for an appointment and stopped by to ask if I could get my suit, that I had already paid for, for my appointment. I was told by the daughter of the owner that this was ok but soon after was confronted by the store owner (a small Greek guy) that if I wanted my 'fucking suit back that I come back with $2229.99 in cash and clear my debt with the store because he wasn't going to wait 15min on the phone again' and concluded with calling me a 'little shit.'

Needless to say I left without my suits. Well since then, I have opted not to pick up either of my suits as I don't feel that as a customer I should be told how and when I should purchase something, even after he agreed to the fact that I could come back later (when I had come in to purchase the first suit the other two were not done yet).

Well I guess he filed charges against me for Negligence of Debt and False Imprisonment of a Debut for a Retailer. I was told by the police that if I did not clear the debt in 72 hours that they would file Felony charges against me and that the owner had 'every right' to speak to me in the manner in which he had.

Not only am I livid that he would have the balls to call the police and have them come to my home at 8am on a Saturday Morning, but that the police actually found that to be a valid case, let alone a felony.

Any advise from a police or legal official?

I will clear the debt today as well.

Thanks,

Matt

The store owner shouldn't have called you a little shit but he did have cause to be upset. It's your fault that you didn't have clearance to use your fathers card and you should have checked this first. Can you afford to pay the debt in the 72 hours?

He probably won't be tried as an adult, so it won't show on his record. The bill is his dad's responsibility because he is under 18.

I own a company and fit a 36S which are impossible to find on hand, which this store carries a select few with, and they just happen to be the type I like.

No the bill is mine. He is the primary on the account but I pay the bill at the end of the month.

The card carries my company name. I was on the last cards as I am any card with my company name on it. I wasn't aware that you had to call in every new card as well. I thought it would have stood on the account. Yes I can afford the debt in 72 hours.

I don't know if you were being sarcastic or not but if you knew the area I lived in you'd believe it. This is a small place that carries extremely nice suits all around but only serves towards rich white people with no real taste for clothes and all like to talk about how much money they're making and how better they are than everyone else whereas there's me who doesn't buy into the whole talk about what other's don't need to know game.

Who knows, I'm just kinda tired of all the bs that comes with being underage. Mind you the police here are the type to keep a car running just in case someone speeds and all break for 2 hours at one of the 5 Starbucks that are within a 1 block radius of each other here in town. I hate where I live and the people who live here. Mind you the police don't like kids here either.

So thats a justification for buying a $2500 suit? Give me a break. You won't get much sympathy from me as i detest that type of opulnet and wasteful spending. Spending $2500 on a suit is unjustifiiable in nearly every sense, and particularly for you.

My guess is that you probably will not have a right to retire from the purchase of the suits (that were already tailored especially for you), even if the seller called you names later on.

Plus, the thing with the credcards may be understandable, but is still within your responsibility towards the seller. Btw, why was there no other way than to pay by credcard? Bank transfer? Cheque? Cash? You said there was a week in between the 2 incidents - doesn't sound to me like you were really trying hard to pay.

So my advise is: pay, get the suits, never buy there again. And next time, be prepared to pay what you bought, no matter what funny things may happen. Your problems are understandable, and I don't blame you for anything, but they were your problems, and you made them become the seller's problems.

I hate it when other people make their problems my problems. It is not my duty to solve other people's problems. I am willing to help whenever friendly asked, but I am allergic to "funny stories", no matter if true or not. I would not call my customer names (that's why I'd recommend not to buy there anymore), but I won't hear any excuses when it comes to pay the bills. No matter how good they are.

It wasn't that I wasn't willing to pay. It was that the suit I had purchased first was done. Came back for mine which I had paid for (2nd new suit was a day or so away from being done) and was yelled at. I wasn't going to go out of my way to make the guy happy and as a minor it's hell to write off business expenses that are made with cash, esp at $2229.99 on my taxes. So I just blew him off. I've been in contact with his daughter but every time he gets his balls in a knot and starts yelling at me, so I just tell him it's not a professional conversation and hang up.

I don't believe in getting into a fight in a public environment over a dispute. Efforts have been made in the past to have someone else pick them up for me and provide payment, denied by the owner, bank transfer, denied by the owner, he wants cash and he wants me there and I have a feeling he wants to chew me out for it as well. Which I can take but haven't had the time to deal with it. Regardless of how you feel about my actions, his idea to call the police and tell them that I've been neglectful of a debt is bs as I've talked to his daughter on a 2 week basis.

I already have an attorney on retainer who is going to deal with it once formal charges can be presented. This is all 'we will' or 'if you don't.' He's already talked to the owner who's cussed him out as well. Just an old bitter guy. And these were 2 of now 7 I have purchased from them. The first 5 without any errors or fights which surprises me that he thinks it's alright to yell at a customer that's purchased a lot from him in the past.

Yes and she's in charge of any payments including orders, debts, and overall book keeper for the store. She said she wasn't aware that he had filed charges against me when I talked to her today.

I get the ok from her and then the call 5min later of the irate little Greek man swearing me out. This has happened now 4 times.

I'm leaving in 20min to go and deal with this. I will bitch him out about thinking that it's alright to send 4 cops to my house (I live on a dead-end street and the neighbors already think I'm sketch enough because I don't talk about what I do so they see 4 cops at my door and then tomorrow it'll be that I was busted for 20lbs of crack found under my house which was actually stolen from an elderly man who's body was also found next to my pot-growing establishment which was next door to all of my crack, knowing this neighborhood) but won't push the issue past that. I guess the only thing that wins is my credit.

The clothing is used for a company I'm currently under contract for and clothing is on a reimbursement basis which needs to be filed with both them and my business expenses for their account. As in if I weren't working for them I wouldn't be out buying $2200.00 suits.

Again, I never failed to pay anything nor was I not willing to accept the account that was due, I wasn't going to get into a fight with the owner over a pity issue. You adults get so anise towards us 'punk kids'

So why didn't you pay the outstanding balance? It shouldn't have taken more than a week to get the payment credited to your account. When you went back two weeks later the card should have had a high enough limit.

And, if your wallet was stolen, why didn't you get a replacement card? Does it take them that long?

I ordered a replacement card but it came with canceling the other card as well as I had both of them. They sent the primary to me and after that was opened they sent me my card with my name. I went back to take care of the debt and was yelled at. That's when all of this madness started.

What company makes the people they employ shell out over $2000 on a suit.
Thats just stupid. I see you say you are under contract to them at the moment, so its just a tempory thing. I dont get that at all. They will pay you the money back to keep a suit you will use for working for them for a little bit. They get nowt, you get a $2000 suit.

That is correct. I own a company that does R&D for larger companies

What possible R&D could you, a 16 year old, be doing for larger company, that they couldn't do themselves with fully qualified in house staff?

Quoting Trekster (Reply 32):
They will pay you the money back to keep a suit you will use for working for them for a little bit. They get nowt, you get a $2000 suit.

ODD, and, well......

Odd? No. Smelly - definately. If any of this is true then I'll be very VERY surprised.

It's a civil matter, what are the police from three different departments doing getting involved? And the police decided to do a dawn-raid type thing?

You're a 16 year old businessman who carries out R&D for 'much larger firms', yet you can't successfully handle buying two suits without being sworn at and having charges filed against you?

Hmm.

If you are going to buy expensive clothes, at least be able to pay for them.

and other suits don't fit me.

Are these suits custom made and therefore the deal is final and you must pay for the suit? If not, cancel the sale with him and get it else where.

Try and get the total you owe in cash. And go to him and say you will buy the suits in full in cash if he drops the charge, and let that be the end of it. Then go find another taylor.

I don't feel that as a customer I should be told how and when I should purchase something

Whoa big guy. You DID purchase the suits! You entered into an agreement and the guy bought the materials and spent time making/tailoring the suits. HE'S out of pocket. You made a commitment to purchase and you haven't held up your end of the bargain.

He's not telling you how or when to purchase something. You already did that. He's telling you he wants his money. If you were that "Short-Greek-man", and were out $4500, would YOU hand over the goods to a guy who would appear to be having trouble paying for his purchases?

I didn't think so.

As my Mom used to say, "If you're looking for sympathy, you'll find it in the dictionary between shit and syphilis."

Grow up and be a man. Your post makes you seem like a spoiled brat with Daddy's credit card.

I didn't know 16 yr olds were able to enter into legal contracts.

If you could truly affor $2,200 suits, you could afford to get your legal advice from somewhere besides the internet.

Well that isn't smart on his part, if your lawyer and you were smart enough to tape these conversations, then you can demonstrate he is the one being unreasonable, while you are in good faith attempting to resolve the situation
