Apparently the Bobcat Youth Football Organization has been ripped off!?!?! Parents wrote checks back in April for cheerleading uniforms, football jerseys, and accessories. Now being told that a check was written to a company that no one can locate and the merchandise won't be coming in. Parents are out of there money and children have NO uniforms for games (unless the played years prior). This is disturbing because none of the information is matching up and different stories are being told to different parents. The children DO NOT deserve this!

Something doesn't add up with that account of events. Which scenario is happening here?

If the check was cashed, there is a record of that. It would be time consuming to take legal action but you would have evidence that the money was taken and the product not delivered.

If the check truly cannot be found, as in Bobcats mailed check to vendor, vendor lost check before cashing, of course you're not getting free jerseys. If that is the case, you simply call the bank and void the check and write a new one.

If nobody can locate the company in general, that is strange. Do you use a different vendor for these items every year? I would think you would use the same people year to year so it would be strange for them to just rip you off. If the company just vanished altogether taking money and running, that is unfortunate but it happens.

Or, was a check supposedly written to a company never before used and nobody can prove ever existed? This would point to somebody with access to Bobcat money stealing it.

Supposedly, a check was cashed and now the company will not fulfill the order because they were indebted to larger accounts. This is one version of the story we are all being fed. We are essentially being told different stories depending on what day of the week it is or which board member you speak to. As for the parents, our checks were written to the Bobcats and were cashed.

Tomorrow there will be a parent meeting at 7:30 to discuss the issue with uniforms. If you could please be at the bleachers so we can start on time.
Thank you!

Keeping Buisness in town if it's available to you would be wise.

Seriously!!! I have a child playing soccer & I see a lot of things going on. I spoke to a previous President of the soccer board & when I told him what I saw he told me to look @ the by-laws. So Board Member you are supposed to produce the by-laws to the parents.

thought this only happened in cc. unless the low life thieves moved on to Wilmington. bill and cindy galanos ripped off the cc miners blind. not to mention they stole from the coalers split the pot. takes real scum bags to steal from a kids organization. tell the cops to go knock on the galanos door. if they aren't home go to babes. they are the losers that are at the end of bar every night, thieves!!!!!!!!
