    That being said, if a rep scams you on a side deal you should let the sponsor know about it so that they are aware of what is going on.
    The sponsor may tell the rep to make good on the deal, they may drop the rep altogether or they may do nothing at all.
    This is also something that the mods and admins will stay out of because it does not directly involve a board sponsor.


    If you're making side deals with a rep or just with some other board member or a guy in the locker room...ask for references and check them out.

    Always be careful but no matter how careful you are, you most likely will get burned more than once in this game.
    It's part of the "acceptable risks" we take.
    If you tell me, "I've been doing gear for 20 years and I've never been scammed once", you're either lying or you don't know good gear from bad and you shouldn't be doing this at all.

    I do wish you luck resolving your issue.
    Thanks bro that is exactly what I was trying to get across.

    ......you knew the guy was ripping off the store, so imo if you got ripped off it's not the store's fault...I know you're saying the same thing..



    ....but REPS sell to a middle man using the 'brand's reputation' to help the sale, therefore the rep should be responsible ....

    What did you think you were getting into buying gear from a rep on the side? Not only that, the dude was fucking shady to begin with. Bad move on your part brother. He probably ripped the sponsor off with the gear he was trying to sell, he also was trying to sell a rolex, a handgun, lol red flag right there, plus he has a reputation for being a grade A retard around here.... at least thats what ive been told.....

    And NO the sponsor has nothing to do with this. Its a side deal that is completely out of the sponsors hands.

    If a rep is making side deals claiming to be working for the sponsor (on the side) that should sound fishy in the first place and the sponsor should be made aware of it.
    If a rep is making side deals with gear he got from his sponsor, that's fine...as long as he doesn't claim to be selling on the side for the sponsor and makes it known he is making the deal himself.

    I don't get where you think "reps sell to a middleman...".
    Reps are there to answer questions and facilitate the deals...there are no middlemen.
    If you buy from a sponsor, even if you talk with a rep throughout the deal, the gear comes from the sponsor, not the rep.
    Sponsors do not ship your order to a rep who reships to you.

    So again, slowly this time, if you make a side deal with a rep, even if it's for gear from the rep's sponsor, the sponsor is not liable but should be made aware if you get scammed.
    If the rep is claiming to be making side deals FOR THE SPONSOR you should let the sponsor know immediately.

    ............I'm sorry PF, I meant to say 'if a Rep is working for 'sponsor' & the Rep is a scammer, the sponsor should assume responsibility for the Rep's actions..if the debt isn't delt with , the 'name' of the sponsor would be in question... imo
