No but I am after their Ga. License. I will check with the BBB but I don't think they are listed.

Thanks for the response.

If's theys has properties in Union county, file a lawsuit in small claims court for payment and also all expenses for collecting your monies. Sounds like you deserve at least $1,000 more than owed.

IGreg has a business near the bowling alley called Warehouse Sales.
I would NOT recommend putting anything on consignment there and avoid his auctions if you want to keep your stuff or your money.
I hate thieves and liars! If it makes you feel any better, anybody that Googles his name will see your Topix post as the FIRST item listed.

As a business owner myself, I feel he should be held responsible for his actions (if your accounting of them is full and accurate). I sent him a friendly "FYI" e-mail suggesting he respond to your post... hope you get your final payment soon! Update your post if you do... that would be "fair" since late is better than never, right?

Thanks for all of your kind responses.

I will pickett their upcoming auction in Jasper and hand out the facts.

Every statement is true and I have the text messages and witnesses to back them up.

Small claims costs $103.00 and I will be short rent by $200.00 this month thanks to them.

In addition, I will miss my YEARLY vacation at my timeshare in FLA. because of this.

I would not have sold the collectibles if I wasn't in a financial pinch.

Does this guy have a used furniture store, too, near the bowling alley? He buys furniture from people when they are moving? Youngre or older. The reason I'm asking, if it is the same person, two months ago he offered to buy from my friend who was moving north. He didn't show appointment after appointment. Finally, he admitted to my friend that he didn't have any money left to buy furniture. He bought a house full of furniture from her brother the month before. The furniture he bought from the brother was very expensive furniture and he paid top dollar...with your money, most likely. Fill me in. I'll be sure to pass the word.

I believe Childers doesn't only do consignment, but buys outright then resells. I'll do some checking for you.

That's what he is using other people's money for.

Magistrate Court in Georgia
If you can't to resolve a dispute with a person or a business, you may take your problem to magistrate court.
Magistrate court, also called small claims court, is an informal court that handles money claims of less than $15,000. This court offers a quick and inexpensive process to resolve complaints.
Examples of problems often taken to magistrate court include:
A tenant refusing to pay for damages in excess of the security deposit.
A landlord seeking to evict a tenant for nonpayment of rent.
A landlord failing to return a security deposit.
A merchant refusing to replace, repair or refund faulty merchandise.
A person refusing to return money or property borrowed from another.
A dry cleaner refusing to pay for lost or damaged clothing.
A driver refusing to pay for repairs after denting someone's fender.
An auto mechanic charging for work not done, unnecessary repairs or faulty workmanship.
You may file a claim in magistrate court in your own name without an attorney, or you may hire an attorney at your expense. Magistrate court cases are heard and decided by a judge without a jury. In some counties, mediation is recommended or required before a judge will hear the case.

How does one collect the award?
In many cases collecting the court award is more difficult than proving the case in court. A judgment granting the plaintiff an award gives the plaintiff the right to collect the money damages from the defendant, but the plaintiff is responsible for actually collecting the award. The court cannot, and will not, collect awards for any party.
If the defendant is unable to make full payment immediately, the plaintiff may ask the court at the hearing to order a payment plan. The plaintiff must pay the clerical and accounting costs of such payment plan, which costs are not to exceed 10 percent of each payment made. If the defendant is unwilling to pay, the plaintiff may:
Place a lien on the defendant's property, giving the plaintiff the right to sell the defendant's property to collect the money award. The clerk of the court, when asked by the plaintiff, can place a lien on the defendant's property. A small fee is charged to place a lien.
Garnish the employer or bank account of the defendant in order to seize the defendant's wages or bank deposits. The garnishment process allows the plaintiff to collect installment payments on the debt the defendant owes. The plaintiff must file a separate garnishment action and pay a filing fee.
If you do not know the name of the defendantís bank or the location of other assets, you can file a post-judgment interrogatory. Mail the form, which can be obtained from the clerk of the magistrate court, to the defendant, who must respond under oath within 30 days. Note that the defendant may close the bank account when advised of the pending garnishment, and then you would need to obtain information about any new account.
Hire a collection agency to recover the money damages owed. These services can be costly and are usually based on a percentage of the money collected from the defendant.

Thanks to all of you for your POSITIVE responses.

I hope to sue him for breach of contract and hopefully recover more than what he owes plus expenses but right now I am going to be short on some payments thanks to Greg and Chris Childers.

They are having an auction tomorrow 9-29-12 at 80 Chambers Industrial Dr., Jasper and I will be there handing out fliers with the facts as presented in my post.

Chris has said I will be arrested but having checked with the authorities it won't happen as long as I am not in their leased building.

Wish me luck!!!

Thanks again

I am one of the people that Mr Williams has accused. I will not air all if the information but mr Williams did ask that he be paid in cash and over a period if time..due to not wanting the money to show up...ie taxes, legal fees etc.
What Mr Williams has also failed to mention that I ask him for an address to send monies too...even though I was a contract employee and he has included me in his false accusations. He has refused to do . He will be paid all monies owed to him. I will not be accused of being involved in something...ie deals being made without my knowledge etc...he needs to tell the while story if he's Goin to tell it.

Maybes youse two can gets togethers and solves yalls problems befores going to a courts over the matters...courts only adds to costs of doing businesses.
It also beats airing grievances on topix as topix is not judge or jury on folks real personal problems. youse will howevers gets lots of jail house legals advices.


A mans should pay his debts.
A mans should be carefuls of owing debts.
A mans should be carefuls of obligating others to long terms debts.
A mans resolution of a legal problem wonts be solved on topix...

Sounds like at least one of them is willing to work this thing out. Why not give it a try. All court will do is cost more money and cause many more issues than just working it out.

I might remind you and your partner that you bought a house load of furniture from friends of mine, Lee and Sandy, on Trackrock. Good quality furniture, I might add. Lee's sister sat appointment after appointment waiting for you, but no show and no call. I was there. Frustration mounted. Your business admitted to Lynne that you didn't have any money left to buy furniture because you were just starting your business and used all available funds.

If you owed this man in GA money for such a long time, how could you afford to buy furniture from the people on Trackrock? Why didn't you pay this person before using money to buy more. You also told Lynne that you didn't have room for more furniture at the time.

The fact you stood Lynne up time after time w/o calling tells me you have some honesty and work ethic issues.

I don't find a problem with Mr. W. airing his issues with Childers on TOPIX. It is good to know who to trust in Blairsville and who not to do business with.

Because of their disregard for my friend and never showing up for appointments (she waited and waited for these people), something isn't right about the way they run their business.

It seems that terms of payment should be in writing - that way there would be no doubts in anyone's mind.

I've thought about stopping by and seeing what your store had, but after reading that you sound a little shady, I won't.

I totally agree with you that Topix IS a valid place to complain about a local business. "Amos" seems to forget that it was the attention generated in this forum that got the OP a reply from Chris. "Amos" is correct that a conversation should now take place offline between the parties, but Topix got the dialog going and will continue to be bad press for Childers until the issue is resolved.

Actually, Topix is a pretty powerful tool to get a business's attention, since the web crawlers fully index all posts and Topix posts occur very high in Google results. Use this power wisely...
