Bullseye Indoor Shooting Range And Firearms Store / Loose cannons
On February 8, 2008 Randy Powell owner of Bullseye Indoor Range & Gun Shop in Lawrenceville, Georgia contacted our office for service. Mr. Powell was quoted $250 for two areas each 2000 square ft. of carpet to be cleaned. The store downstairs and offices upstairs. On February 13, 2008 the technician met with the son Jeremy. When the technician asked the son to take a walk through of the areas to be cleaned he became irritated and told him to just clean and began using profanity. The technician requested a signature after advising the son of the total amount of the service. He then contacted his father by phone and handed the phone to the technician. He began yelling at the technician referring to him as "Bubba" who name is Michael and is also African-American. As the technician attempted to explain or resolve the matter, Mr. Powell stated Ã¢"If you charge my card, I"m going to put you out of business!" Mr. Powell's card was charged $50.00 for a minimum service fee in agreement with our service policy.Soon afterwards we started getting unusual phone calls and the slanderous internet postings appeared.
The following is an actual posting:
[ TERRIBLE SERVICE!!! We called made an appointment and told them the sq. footage of our building and they quoted us $250. When the guy showed up(the owners brother, Michael Washington) he was complete ### from the beginning and the told us that it was going to be $500, twice the price that they quoted us on the phone. Obviously we told them that we weren't interested and then they charged our credit card $275 for what they call a missed appointment. Well yea, who is going to schedule an appointment with a scam artest like this. Believe me when I tell you, DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE, THIS COMPANY OR ANYONE DEALING WITH MICHAEL WASHINGTON IS A SCAM!!!]
Done in retaliation this is the actual defamatory statement that was posted online and in violation of Yahoo's guidelines.
This also a violation of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 (a common name for Title V of the Telecommunications Act of 1996)
Tortious interference with business relationships occurs where the tortfeasor acts to prevent the plaintiff from successfully establishing or maintaining business relationships.
We hope that this information is helpful to anyone that may want to do business with these people. You would think that a federally licensed firearms dealer would be held to a higher standard rather than take on the behavior of a common thug.
I would advise anyone who is doing business with these guys to beware of "Loose Cannons"
