Lynn Creek Marina Complaint - Buyer Beware - Pontoon Boat
GRAND PRAIRIE, TEXAS -- Buyer beware. I bought a boat from this marina July 2008...as of yet I STILL have not received my title. I tried calling, no returned calls. Nothing was done until AFTER I filed a civil lawsuit. After they received notice of suit, they promptly called me and said they had all the proper paperwork ready to go and would mail it to me. Once I received all the documents, TX Parks & Wildlife informed me that none of the paperwork was correct. Lynn Creek Marina illegally sold me a boat with a landlord's lien. Once they realized they would be taken to court, they started the proper procedure, however, they could not sell the boat until 15 days AFTER public notice was given. They sold me the boat in July of '08 and placed an AD in the paper DEC '08...ummmmm that's AFTER they sold the boat. All notices to the prior owners were mailed in AFTER they got my money (and suit was filed). Makes no sense...just someone TRYING to cover their tracks. Also, they were required to sell the boat in a public auction....I bought it on craigslist.
I am now in the process of filing another suit against them for an illegal sale. STAY AWAY FROM LYNN CREEK MARINA! They are frauds, hang up on customers and apparently sell items that don't legally belong to them.
