Your hot tubs, people, are listed in the chapter 13 pages where they are declaring your hot tubs and your money as liquidation. They DONT have your hot tubs and they DONT have your money. What that means, ladies and gentlemen is your money and hot tubs are DOWN THEIR DRAIN. Pardon the expression. A long soak in a hot tub will ease your stress......better yet, forget it.

I bought from AJ Spas in Patchogue. They are honest, reliable and not expensive and they carry a good line of spas

We went to Hot Tubs and More to buy a filter cartridge, they did not have it and asked us to pay and they will order for us, and they did not, we kept calling every time we talked to TIM and was told they will check the order. One time he put us on hold and left for the day.

Tim Greco sold Poseidon Pools to Joseph Gartner in Jan of 2005. When I left Poseidon, nobody was owed anything. Gartner proceeded to bankrupt the company and not pay anybody what he owed them. It is Gartner who is the bad the guy here. Not myself. Chris from Shirley, you seem very mature. I'll be happy to help you with any problems you may be experiencing from your dealings with my ex business partner. I think you know where to find me.

Tim Greco makes me laugh. I may have been born in the morning, however it was not yesterday morning. Does Tim Greco really think that we beleive that business at Poseidon was just "peachie" up until the time he left? As soon as he left Poseidon the place fell apart, right.
I am sure that Joe Gartner did not rack up millions of dollars in debt in less than 18 months. The wheels of bad business were set in motion way before "Baldy" alias "Tim Greco" left Poseidon!
Now "Timmy Boy Greco" Masquerades on Route 110 as a legitimate businessman. I have a couple of questions for Mr. Greco. How come you never post your "Consumer Affairs License Numbers" in your ads as you are required to do?
Why do you hide under 3 names at your Route 110 store. Could it be a licensing issue?

The Better Business Bureau says Timothy Greco is banned by Consumer Affairs and he can not engage in this type of business. Check it out.

I purchased a spa from Suntek Pools and Spas in Farmingdale. The people there were very helpful and
informative.I also liked that they do all there own
service and do not sub contract. I am very happy with
my purchase of a Master Spa and there chemical dept.
for my chemicals.

Who ever this Huntington Station person is, needs to see me. You know who I am and where I am. Come in and talk to me. You have a lot of anger. I'd love to know why. The name calling is uncalled for. I have police reports and court documents about Gartner and the many things he forged my name on amongst other names. Feel free to come see me whenever you want.

By the way, a license isn't necessary to run a retail operation!!
The truth from Joe G

The competitor from above is on the right track. Tim is the reason why the business fell apart. He controlled every financial aspect of Poseidon. In addition, he hired his family members to help him even more control the business. Timmy left Poseidon in poor condition meanwhile he had enough money to redo his entire house (where do you think he got this kind of money)!!! After leaving Poseidon Tim also had the financial means to not work for a year and then open his own business under his wife name. The reason why it is in his wife's name is because he is avoiding creditors. The truth will prevail! And soon it will be know how much cash Tim took from Poseidon. Many customers and employees have supported and conformed my side of the story.

Joe G has recently been arrested for threatening the life of a man and his family. His credibility is shot everywhere. His daughter somehow opened a restaurant on Fire Island. He resides in West Islip on the water. Boats, cars, ski dos, buildings, too many toys to list. Wonder how he gets all of that stuff?

Timmy Boy Greco is correct. You do not need a home improvement license to operate a retail store. However you do need a license to service spas/hot tubs. So how is it that Hot Tubs and Less tells customers they do there own service, when Timmy Boy Greco is banned from the industry. It,s not nice to lie.
It is also illegal (without a license) to engage in any conversation at all relating to the sale or installation of any type of swimming pool.
Check out this excerpt from the BBB. "Timothy Greco, is to immediately cease and desist all work associated home improvements in Suffolk County."
Not much gray area here is there?

I was just wondering if anyone received contact regarding collections for purchases made to harrows who stopped payment on ccs? Is this a scam? What are the rights of the consumer? Where are things now with Harrows and their creditors?

The name calling is not only childish but PATHETIC. You should really find something better to do with your time ("Friends of Joe", "Joe G", "Chris") I guess you feel more like a man when you call people names...as I said, PATHETIC...
