Hi Guys, 
Just wondering what options are available to customers who have paid for a charter which never happened and now no contact available with Charter operator.
In Short me and my mates paid for an overnight charter on a fishing Charter advertised on this website, so would of thought of being safe. Weekend of date was bad weather, ok understand, 3 other dates were put up, but due to no communication from operator never eventuated. We are now talking about 3 months past and his phone is off line and even his wife has decided to not answer once she realized we also had her phone number, After 1 phone call. Have quite a few personal details about this operator but would rather keep these to myself and just get our money back before releasing them. 
Anybody have any ideas or have had experience with getting money back from charters not which have not eventuated?
Please would like our money back so that we can spend it with honest charter operators.   
Love Rod

Hi, if they advertise on this site maybe a Pm to grant or another admin might help open the communication channels to help to work it out.

Good luck

That has been tried but shut down by Grant. Why I am looking for other options.
Also seems Boat  is not even in survey    I just completed a survey check on maritime nz site.. that boat not in survey"  Done by another charter operator.  so should not be even offered for paying charters. 
Just looking for legal options, not smashing his boat up as offered by others. but we are talking of over $2500+ owing.

Just a refund would be very nice thank you. then the money could go to better causes, like brewing beer and a day charter. Beer
Very simple.

It's not forum policy to name & shame.

I've tried to make contact with the person involved but have had no response. If you have his details I can only suggest you keep trying to make contact. Appreciate you keeping the details confidential.

We all have tried Smudge. How long does one take before their patience expires? I got given a soppy story over the phone as to why this has occurred. This guy is hiding behind his partners back , a woman's back and doesn't have enough balls to come on here and give a thorough explanation and an apology. Besides that he is the liar and can't hold his word.

I think we know who it is, should be named anyway. Maybe it's not forum policy because in this case the person is heavily involved in the forum and probably mates with moderators. This sort of thing will continue until people realise the harm it does to their reputation. Holding your tongue enables that.

Go to fair go - they would love this one as dont often have marine scenarios to pull the audience. They have no problem name and shaming to the entire nation.

Happy not to name and shame as the point really is, in this sort of problemwhat options are there for us. OK small claims court is one is there others? Fair go would be interesting, but I like my privacy and haven't a face for the TV, radio yes.

Also I am sure Maritime NZ will be very interested in somebody doing charters when not in survey.

I mean, you did post his address on Facebook. Might want to delete that if lawyers get involved.

I do not know the person in question personally, but he has been incredibly helpful to a huge number of forum members over the years and this would seem to be totally out of character, if possible I hope this can be sorted amicably for all. A wise person once said treat others well as you never know just what they are going through. Good luck for happy resolution.
slowly going where everyone else has already been

Tonto it doesn't negate the fact that he is screwing people over this time around. I don't care what his past is to be blunt here. We have been extremely patient, enough is enough
