Will you come to my trial?

Troy at Saco River Auction Co. has threatened to sue me for slander as I said Susan Hale has been cheated and feels swindled by this phoney auction change and the resale of her dollhouse and furniture this Saturday. 1 PM PST. (has the start time been changed to 12:30 pm?)  it is 11:32 am here and their web site says starts in 1 hr. ok it is 11:56 am and the Saco River Auction site now says "Auction starts in 1 hr". Just being as careful as I can be to understand their rules.


Susan has also been called "confused" nice talk about a woman finishing chemo! Good thing we have emails, they are very clear.


 Plus let me add I think Susan is being bullied by being called "Confused" and offered further "gift certificates" Don't they know who they are dealing with. A published author, popular blogist and savvy business woman.


She is very clear with Live Auctioneers.com and Saco River Auction Co. that she wants her items.


It seemed important legally that they kept her payment for over a month before deciding not to deliver her lot regardless how they shift the reason.
The sale was Feb.4, 2012. The refusal email began March 31st. Now (today Troy tells Susan) they are saying the "invoice was automatically generated." Was the consignee's share automatically generated too? That's a legal point in Susan's favor for ownership. Quick get the Accountants and the books.Today then there is another new story about how after they cancelled Susan, They put $1,000 or some amount into fixing the dollhouse roof and they need to recoup that. 
Which has no bearing on HER sale. Can you keep up with this?


She filed her complaint with the Maine Licensing Board again today and it was hilarious trying to fit her Canadian address into their form, that is one of the reasons she has help from an American citizen. Don't think you can sluff us off.


 Perhaps a trial is what is needed here. As my daughter went to Law School, and she and my son in law live in Washington D.C. we probably do not have to mount a defense fund for me. Or I'll sell MY Tynietoy townhouse to fund it. Ok, maybe just a Gottschalk or Bliss or two... guess which auction house I won't use? Rhymes with "doesn't deliver"...


Does Saco River not see How people feel about this? Read the comments below. Too bad Rebecca lives in New Zealand and Mitchymoo in England, I would plan a protest. 


Will Susan Hale prevail? This is a seminal case against an auction house reselling a sold item, regardless of their reason and the Liveauctioneers.com that sponsors the auction online. 
I am not afraid because it is true and in America we believe in the rule of Law even in auction houses. Judges use a gavel too.

Very unfortunate situation and it's very stinky. Seems pretty obvious the house felt the item could have made more money and came up with a 'better' solution...for themselves.

I hope they wise up and honor the sale.

Then it turns out this is really the THIRD sale! The plot sickens!C

Heather said...

Man, this is insane.

I really wish you luck. I think everyone who *isn't* the auction house can see who is in the wrong here.

My Realitty said...

Thank you Heather. Let's hope Susan Hale is respected and we can trust Liveauctioneers.com again. C

Hey there Honey,
I may live in Blighty and dislike airplanes but dangnabbit, I can swim! The Atlantic is just a pond right? I have arm bands at the ready...you just gimme the nod =0*

Susan is renewing her complaint with the liscensing board of Maine. Troy came up with another excuse that the Billing was "autommated" so was the payment to the consingee "automated" too. More legal problems. There lies the problem. Apparently it was. C

We are rallying you here, CM!

Unbelievable! They want to threaten you for slander!?!? The plot definitely sickens. This auction house just keeps appearing more and more shady. You are a saint for all of your help. Keep us posted on how else we can help.

I have learned if you say "so and so is acting like a clown" it is not slander. Not that I want to offend clowns... One is not actually accusing anyone of BEING a clown...
Not to offend clowns, again. C

Robins Egg Bleu, I doubt it, why would they put a different (back view, misleading) picture in the auction catalog, clerical error again? C

Mitchymoo, come on girl! Hit the beach! We'll be waiting with a towel. Be sure to wear one of those vintage plastic bathing caps, Maybe the Washer Woman has one. It will look so good in the press coverage as you emerge! C
