I would assume that the legal issues that seem to be mounting might have been a bit much for a public forum such as THT...

Greg Slayton contacted me a couple of years ago in relation to a Donzi issue, as well as his other business issues. My advice to him was to "lay low", repair his image, his business practices, and to square away the issues facing him...in other words, a "make over". It seemed to have worked...for a while. But apparently, my advice was not enough to make him change the way he goes about leading his life and conducting his business.

People are born a certain way, and that inherent characteristic is something they will always have, regardless of the influences external to them that try and change that characteristic. Take the Casey Anthony case down here right now. The woman was born a psychopath, through no fault of her parents, grandparents, siblings, external influences, whatever. It's just how a certain few chemicals got together when the sperm and the egg collided, and the end result is what she is, and she will always be that way. I'm not comparing Greg to Anthony, I'm just saying that, despite repeated issues concerning his his personna and his business, it is fairly evident that there is something amiss there, and it's something neither you not I can fix...

So I would suggest we move on, and try to do out best due dilligence when searching out a vendor to conduct business with. And as has been said here before, "Move along, nothing to see here...":thumbsup:

While I agree that this isn't a legal venue, removing the thread wasn't the correct thing to do. Perhaps if the mods edited it a bit to remove personal information. One of the great things about this forum is how it brings to light situations like this, and perhaps prevents anyone else from becoming a victim.
Look at A1/Blackbird/OneOutboard...THT was where they were basically "outed" as an unreputable business, and has saved many prospective customers thousands of dollars and major headaches.

Hi I am the one (a newbie) who posted what some seem to think is personal information about Greg Slayton ! if I oversteped the rules SORRY ! not sure how personal information (found on the internet) could anylonger be considered PRIVATE ?? all you got to do is DIG!! I have $26,910.00 reasons to think the DPM / Greg slayton story needs to be kept posted to warn others.

I agree with Wolakrab the thread shoild have been edited not removed. I'm sure Greg's attorney threatened a lawsuit if it wasn't. People need threads like these to get info on dishonest bussinesses like DPM. He keeps geting new victims by moving from a website were he's found out to one where no one knows him. He's now selling on dieseltrader.com.

i don't really understand the law in USA...surely if someone takes 78k of your money and doesn't supply the goods he would be arrested ??? Over here he would be in jail so fast his feet wouldn't touch the ground and his shop sold to pay debtors.

I have had the opposite situation, i supplied goods and guy kept giving me run around about payment...went to court he was fined and i was paid following day otherwise he was going straight to jail.

I was trained -- and worked for a while -- as a lawyer. Your question is a wonderful one. Long answer, you do not have time for. And it's sad and dull at the same time. Short answer? Yes, we used to have a system pretty much like the one you describe in Ghana. And it worked pretty well. And now we don't have it any more. End (probably) of story. Sad beyond words.

Basically, I believe that most honest laymen, and at least a good majority of lawyers, in the US agree with you. As I said, the story of how we got here and what can be done about it is sad, very long, and somewhat subject to argument. But our present-day reality is pretty obvious to everybody with eyes and a brain.

I know you're probably just needing to vent but, all respect, you are just chasing your tail by calling those suppliers, etc. You know very well he didn't ship anything. And any of us who have ever been in, worked for, whatever, a business that DOES really ship anything know that you never ship it without some form of paperwork from the carrier who picks it up. BOL, shipping receipt, waybill, whatever. And the shipper just faxes it to the buyer, when asked. Anything else from Greg would be B.S. Or he might even fax you a fake, if he's really dumb (that's a crime, among other things.)

I think the guys in this and the other thread who are working with the courts/police/sheriff there are going the only way to go. But of course, there is probably no cash at the end of that trail either. Total bummer, whether eighty bucks, eight thousand or eighty thousand. My condolences.

I had him pegged from the start. Greg and I had a conversation via PM about this thread-and the outright spamming he did on another-and all he could say was how many people had gotten in touch with him about the Topaz thread. I wonder where all those groupies are now??
He'll keep running his scam until the law shuts him down and locks his ass up. Hopefully, that won't take too long.

Here's what I posted about Greg january 2010 on Boatdiesel,

Greg I do not believe any of your posts. I have been following them since this one in june of ´09, http://boatdiesel.com/Forums/Thread.cfm?CFApp=31&Thread_ID=36759 . In this post and all your others since you state "dyno sheets and specifications this week´ . That was 7 months ago with no info posted! In that post Paul Foulston,Ski and others state your projects are unethical (won´t meet EPA regs),impractical (heat exchangers and coolers are to small,etc.etc.) or impossible. In a post on August ´09 this gentleman asks "Greg,Do you care to present details of your advertised products with specifications, pics, dynos and applications already in use? It is very confusing to see so many ads offering products that does´t exist with out any data to support your claimed work and can mislead an uninformed potential buyer into investing in an unproven engine. Alberto", to which you had no response. I can´t find the post of an unhappy repower customer of yours as it must have been deleted but , he was very unhappy with you and felt he was ripped off. You post on here under three or more different named Greg, DPM ,delta marine etc. You talk the talk and have pretty pictures but you DO NOT WALK THE WALK!! A local guy just lost $25,000 listening to someone with as much BS as you have. He now has a engine that runs and preforms much worse that a standard engine and has to be replaced. I hope this post helps someone keep there hard earned dollars instead of losing them to you. Sorry to the rest of the forum for the rant but I´ve seen to many people fall for guy like Greg. Randy

I took some greif on Boatdiesel and on here until everyone found out what I knew. It just sucks that he's still sucking people in!!!!!

Ok - This is bugging me now:

Pissed Off and Pissed Off 2 are husband and wife from what I saw on the other thread? Why is it that Pissed off is out 27K and Pissed Off 2 is out 78K? Did you put in two orders for engines? Maybe I am missing something here but if you don't have your story straight on here, how do you ever think it will hold up in court.

A few thoughts to ponder:
- If you think this will get into a courtroom, your mixed stories will just destroy credibility.
- If you do get into a courtroom, I am sure Greg's lawyer will have printouts of these threads - didn't you know you if you plan to get into a lawsuit, you don't post your details in an open forum. Your own lawyer might even advise you to shut down even social network accounts like facebook to protect your information.

- If you ever actually do get your engines, do you even want them at this point? What will happen if there is an issue with one of the custom made parts like such as the heat exchanger. You can't just go to CAT or CUMMINS and get one.

Not sure what engines you needed, but if you spent your 78K with a certified dealer for whatever engines you ordered, you'd most likely have a set of engines in the boat, with warrenties and a company to back you, even if it did cost 15% more, it would have most likely been well worth it!

Hi from Alaska ! so following is the latest e-mail I just got from Greg (he also sent a pic of what is my engine BUT I am not smart enough to get it over here !)
Your such a nice man......Your engine is very late and is shipping and Alan will be in touch with you the end of next week. He will have a cashier check for the gear, but You will have to post/ rescind the slander threads on the Internet / and send letters to our vender's to modify the SLANDER campaign you have so viciously put together and then he will send you your check. Rick Chapman is here say.... they put one of our engines on the Dyno without having a raw water pump on it, and oil went all over the Dyno room... We have never blown and engine up on a dyno.........At the end of the day we would like to apologize for being so late, but instead of bank-rupting, we stuck out a very large bad debt and are finishing the orders we have and are now back to a normal schedule . Also the shop in Texas still has the gear you asked for, once you straighten out the slander campaign we will forward you there info.

We have 2 each new QSC 550 Hp marine engines and 2 each new Twin Disc gears shipping freight prepaid to FIFE WA......with your address on the label...Homer Alaska... We will need more shipping info or we will just ship collect to Homer from Washington......

.......NOW we got to get the slander campaign cleaned up !...... 1st We were very wrong for not shipping on time, We too fell victim to over seas fraud, a much larger amount than your invoice and in turn made us 4 plus months late on Del's.....I am very sorry for what we have caused in your and your husband life's....We do build very nice Commercial engines.....
Once you send letters out to our vender's THE ONES THAT WERE CALLED ! stating you have in-fact received your engine purchases and RETRACT the Fraud and SCAM letters on the Internet we will send the remaining small parts to your address ......Yes you made your point.....and Yes we need this cleaned up and Yes we need your help and cooperation ....And Yes we learned a valuable lesson from all this.

Once again I apologize for not shipping on time and for not performing as promised .....Sincerely Greg Slayton
hi I’m stephanie! this is the latest email from greg . what slander? what I posted was all truth.we still don’t have engines or gears nor the money.PHFFF SLANDER!!!!!

They dyno'd the motor without hooking up a cooling source?? That sounds like BS to me...anyone who even remotely knows what they're doing wouldn't make such a stupid mistake.
More than likely another excuse to put you off...and I would wager the pics aren't even of your motor.

I would post the pic here BUT am not smart enough to get it from my email to THT can anyone welp me ? Thx Ron

Yeah for sure guy has no shame, all he ever learned was how to make lies, and steal he's fed us nothing but that, since february.Anyway you look at this we're 78k short plus receiving BS throuh his emails. All i'm hoping is,that he didn't sucker in somebody else into his scheme,while the authorities are getting closer to prosecuting Greg Slayton.I hope the people that are maybe thinking of doing business with this ponzi scam guy ,are readind these posts ,cause they're all true.

Ya know something....Not to pour salt in any wounds or anything but with our system these days, youre likely to go to court, win the case and still never see any of your money or engines. With that being said, the enternet is a pretty handy tool, and you can just about find any information about ANYONE in the world, including their address. I think I'd cut my losses, with my last expense being a plane ticket, rental car, and some Neosporin for my knuckles when I was done with Greg.....

I was able to determine all this by just taking the top off the shipping box (just think what else I would find if I totally uncrated it :-) SO I put the top back on refused delivery & sent the engine back to Greg!!! Greg now claims he will not except return delivery.

I have exchanged several emails with Greg on Friday, he claims Cummins will supply me with a new data plate for a engine he claims to have rebuilt ! (sounds like bull to me) he now claims all the missing parts are extra options I did not buy ! & he just plain wont answer to the wrong size bellhousing, I have ask him to supply me with the Fuel pump calibration # & the engine configration # so he comes back with 450 hp @ 2600 rpm & cpl 8089 ! I ask again for the Cal & Config # ?? Greg's reply it QUIT BITCHING !!! so what this amounts to is this is just another HACK JOB out of Delta Preformance Marine & Greg don't know the numbers AND HE DON'T CARE !!! Its really clear he is not into repeat business !!! Oh well I had a good chat with agent Slaughter in the Burnswick GA FBI office 912-265-2560 maybe they will do something with this fraud artist :-)

Well someone posted the court date as July 18th? or something like that.. What came out of court?
Have you all #1234455667... pissed off people hired legal rep? If he files for chapter 11 or goes bankrupt make sure you go to the hearing and stake your claim. Call a good litigater and make sure you claim gets put in. If it goes into receivership they can sell off assets to pay off crediters which you would fall under. BR court is not joke..

But really what happened in court, and why don't you all hire the same lawyer to fight this? Seems like a pretty easy case if you are telling the truth and have the paper trail to back it up.
Have you asked for a refund and told him to forget about the deal? If you are spending 78k on motor(s) without a purchase contract then?? If he did not meet the time line on the purchase agreement then you are entitled to a refund I would assume because he breached.

Lawyers? yes, no?

The DA canceled the July 18 trial (wants to add new victims to new inditement) & now the FBI is looking into Gregs business dealings . I have tried 3-4 times to get victims to come togather "hire 1 attorney" but seems like everyone has there own idea?? what I understand @ this point is several OLD vicitms have judgements against Greg & still have no satifaction ?? there is no $$ ?? just shit engines !!! I demanded a refund for months Greg said he would send refund (Mon, Wed, Fri :-) for months then it was back to you are getting a engine !!! so now months later I get a shit engine that I returned!!!

Damn I wish I would have spell checked my post you quoted LOL.. was typing and talking.. Did you hire a lawyer? time to forget about everyone else and think about you. Let others worry about their personal/business issue with the guy or company. Do you have a purchase agreement? Does it spell out what he was to do and what you were to do? Were all the actions met on your end and not his or Visa versa?
The "old vicitms' with judgements are either done messing with it or have not hired the correct atty to deal with it.
As for you getting a motor that was/is junk and sending it back and him not accepting I don't know what to tell ya. LAWYER UP...
Trust me he can't hide from BR court.. what I was trying to say in my last post is BR court is not a joke, they have power... If he gets enough suits aginst him he will duck behind BR, but the problem with that is he can be forced into selling assets to cover debt at least in FL.. The only thing you can keep is your primary home, and a car at or under 3500$ ish.. and min tools and minor personal belongings.. everything else gets sold. If he funnels the money into other names, trust, INC's that can all be tracked down and he will be nailed to the wall or should be. If the DA is picking it up then they have some solid stuff on him, now is the time to get a commerical/ contracts lawyer that will litigate this thing out.
If he stalled you out this long, you should stall him out with law suits and have your lawyer fire off a demand of payment letter... for whatever the amount paid was + recovery cost. I bet your contract has verbage in it protecting him from recovery cost and it is big time one sided..

Did you guy do this on a "hand shake" or is there a contract?????????
If so post the purchase contract so everyone can see who completly failed here. We can see where the "hull truth" actually is, edit the names and addresses to comply with forum rules. If he failed to meet the deadline then 100% money should have been refunded unless you desided to wait, which that would be your fault. Stay on it, file your own suit and let the DA do what its going to do. The DA is not going to get you awarded a settlement not their job, they are going after crim charges, so your lawyer would file for damages.
I am not a lawyer but this is the way I understand things it may be wrong that is why you SHOULD HIRE A LAWYER

So far looks like Greg only plays by Greg's rules & I will be the first to send a engine back !!!

08-20-2011, 11:09 AM
Ok fair enough are the lawyers wanting a % or cash retainer xyz per hour? he never said in the written contract when the motors would be delivered that is issue 1. Emails are good and all, but it's not holding him to a breach of contract. The other items may but then again he has an endless amount of time to deliver the items per the contract right? As in there is not a delievery date? "Greg" does not have a set of rules he can or can't follow other than what the law allows, he can do a bad job or whatever but he still gets to follow the same rules as every businessman. I am lost a bit on who is who with all the pissed off's, so did you get delivery of all your goods listed? I know the motor was sent back because it was not right and other issues.. that may or may not breach the contract IF the contract has the specs in which you ordered.
What I don't get is how would filing a suit (if a valid) suit be a waste of good money?
A. you tie him up in court he shows up or his lawyer shows up, if he has money for a lawyer he has money to refund
B. If you win and are awarded a judgment you can then take the nessessary action to collect on said judgment. If he files bankrupticy and moves the money into other INC's he will be in deep shit.. as the BR court will make him turn over all records of every business he is names on, all personal accounts and they or your lawyer will track down every cent. If they find its insider payments to creditors IE his wife owns XZY INC. and he paid them 250k for services rendered... that money would more than likely be pulled back into the BR court.. Like I said I am lot a lawyer nor am I offering you legal advice as all, just thinking how you can get your money back. Each state works differently but most don't like people who steal money from others.

If you have your paperwork I would start chewing at this guy and force him to close up shop and file chapter 11,13 whatever.. Let it go into receivership and then put the screws to him when a court ordered receiver takes ahold of his business doings.
People mistake a judgement as worthless, its only worthless if you don't plan on spending the money to collect. You could ruin his entire life if everything you say is 100% true..
Hand shakes are a bad way to conduct business as you have learned here which does not help you now, but in the future make sure every T is crossed and I dotted when a purchase agreement is struck. Hold them to a delievery date. I believe if you had a delievery date on the agreement this would be over by now because he would have opened himself up for breach...

Also once a business files for 11 or 13 the IRS likes to red flag them and audit...
You have options, you have some tough choices to make. I would find a lawyer who knows contract dispute and commerical litigation and have at it. The emails may help set a date but it was not in the orginal contract.

unless you are award damages and atty fees.... But you can keep thinking that and take it in the ass on this. The DA is not going to cut you a check which I am sure you are aware of that. Even if he is found guilty that does not mean you are going to get paid unless you sue him and get a judgment or he changes and pays ya which does not seem like it has or is going to happen. I can tell ya this much, if I ordered a motor from someone and paid1,5,10, 20,30,40,50,100k and they boned me I would sue them. I would get my money and or product that I paid for.
It appears you want to rant and complain about it, I understand that I would be pissed as well and doing the same thing you are, but I would also have a lawsuit filed to collect. Coming on here and venting is great but you are not going to get paid or get your motor and other items you ordered.. I don't get it... you think bad press is going to cause him to cave in at this point? Sounds like he hired a lawyer to communicate with you or others about comments made on different websites... so? Time to fire a letter back from your legal staff/person and say no, pay me my money, give me my product... or we will see you in court. Remember it's not free on his side either to fight a suit. If 5 different people sue him thats 5 court dates.. I take back my statement earlier about getting everyone together.. do it individually and suck him dry. My girlfriend is a lawyer and I find it funny when people say "only the lawyers win" I believe that in certain cases such as divorce, ambulance chasers, child custody ect... when it comes to business law, and being defrauded out of 70k the person filing the suit (if its a good suit meaning it is legit)
So keep thinking that the lawyers make all the money and anyone who hires them lose.... and keep being pissed your buddy stole your money and you are not doing anything about it except complain. :thumbsup:

Even if he got a judgement, it can be years before any money actually changes hands. A lawyer isn't going to wait that long for a fee...they will ask for it to be paid and the victim will have to look to the defendant for reimbursement.
I can't believe that DPM is still doing business. How much does it take for the local DA to get an injunction to shut him down? If I were ripped off by this guy, I'd be shouting it out from the highest mountaintop.

ME TOO!!! I am right there with you and these guys I would have a blow horn out in front of their shop calling them out... Not bashing the comments, but action needs to be taken. You are correct it COULD be years, but a lot of people have a huge misconception on how it really works. Sure each state is different. Best case is file, win for XYZ, get judgment do asset search lien assets, or force sale. A judge could 100% force the guy to pay up if he has the assets to cover.. he could force a sale. Lawyer is going to want money yep but so would you for doing your job right? Or do you work for free until they feel like paying ya?
Without action there will not be a reaction positive or negative, no judgment means no chance in hell of getting anything.. The longer they wait the further down the list they get of creditors..
I am thru commenting on this thread getting my BP worked up for nothing.
