Hey local thanks for being impartial. What you say is true there are some scoundrels among us but that as true about many people. Also it looks like we're stuck for another 4 years. I can complain because I DID vote.

Larry, I'm 100% opposite from being an IT. I have had a little personal exposure to the Trvellers. I have been very forward and outspoken against scammers especially Irish Travellers since I was screwed over by one of them. I can say this don't believe all that you read that's bad about ITs. Same goes fo don't read believe everything you read that is good.
That fact some people will tell you what you want to hear. If your looking for bad news to feed off of there is plenty same as there are plenty telling you It's are angels. The point I'm trying to make they area the same as any other group of people good ad bad. No race is perfect and there never will be. ITs are not 1/2 as bad as the wrap they have been given. Cut them som slack.

I went back and read what I said. Dang I had so many typos in that. You would have thought a 3rd grader wrote it. Anyway yeah 4 more years of the same crap. I think our best shot to bet Bozo out is to get Benghazi pinned on him and his staffers. They know more than what they are letting onto.

Shop Local: I just wanted to put out a warning to others out there. This was not off of a truck, but right in a store that sells retail to customers. It was a higher priced item. I don't believe anything in the store would be lesss than a few hundred dollars.
I was able to get out from under the mess and I am so thankful for that. If this happens to anyone else, complain like heck until something is done. You might have to go above their heads.
I don't care to post anymore on it. Can I say they were IT's no I can't--but it was typical and facts seemed to point that way.
Can they change their image? Yes, I believe they can. It will not come from a few of them on this board trying to claim what good and misunderstood people they are. It will come from them being very sure that they treat a customer as they would want to be treated. The best advertising has always been a satisfied customer--when will they ever learn this?
wait a min u mean to tell me u blame travelers for what happen to u in a store talk about being a racist that takes the cake cause some thing happens to u it's a travelers fault so if u was to get a speeding ticket is that a travelers fault to ?

No, Busy, I am not a racist at all. However, when I was ripped off by a company that had just started up, near the neighborhood of the travelers, and also run by a big bunch of related people, then I do tend to believe it was Travelers.

I might add also, the company has since closed its doors and moved on after operating for only a short while, so that also sounds like Travelers.

By the way, if you live in Conroe, you are not close enough to know how some of these people operate as those of us that live near them.

If I got a ticket would I think it was the Traveler's fault--I don't see where you even tie that in to something like this.

Strange. Come off it now. You're still on that story? The only thing that's is strange here is your story.

Sorry, my two cents, what I have told is the truth. What you are trying to pass off as to what the Irish Travelers are like is the story.

Strange, even the non travellers that read your story can't make heads nor tails of it. Give names and details of your saga instead of pointing an accusatory finger with no proof

No My Two Cents, I cannot say for sure it is Irish Travelers so, therefore, I will not say it is nor will I give any more details than I already have concerning the name, location, etc.

As I have said, the company has already closed its doors and moved on now after only being opened for a short while.

When it looks like a duck and walks like a duck you tend to believe it is probably a duck.

All I want is for people to take a little more care now when entering a store that has recently opened (their story was they had just moved from another location). When it is run by a bunch of cousins and uncles be a little suspicious. When you have an item that is suppose to have a model and s/n don't let them tell you that it is not showing now because of being unexposed now that they have installed it. I had to go to another company to find out where the s/n and model number were suppose to be located--and it had been removed although sold to me as a new item. Make them give you this information before you make final payment--they kept putting me off on this. Also, do not let them tell you that they called and registered the warranty theirselves. Check everything out first before payment.

Let this be a warning to all that read this! If you buy an anonymous object for some sort of vehicle that is supposed to do something and it comes from people that are related to each other that sells said object from an un disclosed location, please use caution! Very very helpful information.

My two cents: Probably not to a traveler, but to others that might be interested. However, my intent was to warn others of what is now going on within our area. I have no more to say on the subject so good luck in your endeavor to try to make others believe that the Irish Travelers are just wonderful, misunderstood people. Your group has made their own reputation, we did not do it for them, and they alone are the ones that can change it. I do not believe it will come about because you are on the internet trying to spread this image of them. However, have a great day and goodbye.

No strange it is not totally our fault for our reputation. It is also people like you that propagate a lot of the falsehoods that surround our people. You at first blamed us for your misfortune. When infact it was not a traveller at all. You jumpped to conclusions. Merry Christmas..

My two cents: You may say it is not a traveler, however, it does appear to be. As I said if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck.

Your reputation is completely your fault. Your people made it what it is. Now, why don't you quit trying to convince everyone they are great and just start being good honest people as a reputation can change, but only by your group and their actions.

Strange. The only thing it looks like is that you got scammed. I can 100% assure you that it was not a traveller. I like how you say our reputation is our fault but you are the one spreading lies! I haven't now or have I ever said that we are all great people. That would be ridiculous. In fact you find me one post where I've said that and I'll give you back the money you got scammed out of by a non traveller.

I was gonna mind my own business but I must say this is perfectly the worst advise to give any consumer. Now as I say this keep in mind I'm not a traveler and was trying to get info from Strange. But the advise given to warn people is basically as read above.

Strange I am not a travel and do have a history on this board sometimes against the travellers and some for. But this story you can out with had more holes than Swiss cheese. I have no doubt yo were ripped off and rightfully made. But you couldn't /wouldn't tell us where the store was what kind of product it was other than an auto part not a name one even an installer or sales guys first name. You must admit it was odd. You say you only wanted to warn the public. That commendable but after your warning we could have all still ended up there buying just what you did with no clue. Don't half ass what you do. Be in 100% or get out of the way. Sorry to rehash this. And for the record I am very much a non Traveller.
