Mr. Leedham ordered a custom hot tub cover from our company on May 6 2013 via email.
Mr. Leedham’s spa cover was made to his exact specifications and delivery was attempted on June 4 2013. AAA Copper Transport contacted Mr. Leedham on 6/4 to arrange delivery. Mr. Leedham convinced the delivery company that a truck could drive up to his home to make the delivery due to road conditions. We contacted Estes Express Lines on June 6 and arranged delivery via courier in small pick – up truck. Again, Mr. Leedham refused to set an appointment to take delivery from Estes Express.
Estes Express contacted us on 6/7 and let us know that Mr. Leedham refused delivery because he had ordered from another company.
We have no use for the cover Mr. Leedham refused; it is for his specific spa. Our company is now out materials and shipping to and from the customer plus an extra $89.66 for the courier service that Mr. Leedham requested. It appears Mr. Leedham had NO intentions to take delivery of this custom product he ordered. He has cost this company thousands of dollars in materials and shipping that was HIS request. Mr. Leedham has scammed our company and committed fraud!
Now Mr. Leedham has stopped his charge of $764.00. So, this customer has now made out with his entire purchase price of $764 PLUS an additional $480.12 per credit issued on 6/5/13 for a grand total of $1244.12. (when his original purchase price was $764). Beware of Mr. Leedham, he will committ fraud with his Visa card for theft of additional monies beyond his purchase price.
