International Marine and Auto Investments, Inc.
We had signed a contract with them regarding the selling of our truck. They had found a buyer for us. We signed the contract in September of 2008, and there hasn't been a payment made yet!! We have not received a copy of the contract signed by the seller. International Marine and Auto Investments gave our truck away without following their own contract. To date, they have continually made excuses and told us it wasn't their problem anymore. The first buyer, Victor DeVito, had not made any payments even though he signed the contract. He brought the truck back and handed the keys to Chuck. ( Chuck told us they went to get the truck) SO, we now get information that Chuck and Nathan gave our truck to another buyer. Once again, we have not received a copy of a signed contract or insurance coverage. And you are right...no payment form new buyer. But I must add that Chuck didn't have any problem taking Victor DeVito's downpayment money!! After numerous phone calls and emails to Chuck and Nathan, they continue to give us the runaround. Our perfect credit is now ruined, because of Chuck and Nathans continuous lies. We contacted and attorney from Hayward, Wisconsin and we had a conference call with them. Our attorney told Chuck and Nathan point blank that what they were doing was FRAUD!!! Chuck started screaming, as well as Nathan. They did the only thing they could do and they hung up on us!! great business people, huh? So, it is now the end of January and Chuck still hasn't given us any inkling where our truck is and he says the payments are our peoblem, not his. Oh, yeah, May I mention that he called and left a message letting us know that he doesn't like to be "threatened"!! Because we called him and told him he needs to get the payments due as well as late charges paid up or we are going to let the bank handle it with our attorney and that he WILL NOT WIN!! Needless to say, they are tough guys over the speaker phone who are comitting fraud on every level of the word. Do not do business with these FRAUDS!! IF you ahve any questions or want some information, we will be glad to share with you. Our email is
Again, please take heed and google them and look them up on the BBB. The attorney general of Wisconsin and Michigan has told us that the majority of complaints that are not being dealt with are from out of state deals with them. BEWARE!!!

I purchased an RV through them, every payment they made to the bank bounced from insufficient funds. We finally cancelled the contract and have signed one between ourselves. I am in the process of filing theft of services charges on them in Nevada. They never refunded the security deposit, or dispersed it as was required per the contract.

I unfortunately signed a contract with "Chucky Boy" in March 2007 to find us a "buying partner" for our motor home. If I didn't call John Beauregard of "Great Jokes" EVERY MONTH, my wife and I would not have received our payments (They were LATE every month). I'm sorry to say that my mother-in-law agreed to a similar deal with her motor home and her payments were also late. So, I have 2 isolated incidences to reference and something happened with Great Jokes and International back in September...August was the last payment we both received. Since then, I flew to North Carolina (I'm located in Michigan) to get my motor home out of the crusty repo lot and found out that Great Jokes didn't pay them either. I had to pay the repo guy to get possession of my motor home...$750 PLUS $20 per day for storage...$1, 250 total. THANKS CHUCKY-BOY. My buying partner DISTROYED my motor home and according to the contract, Chucky Boy (International Marine) is responsible to clean it up if I agreed to sign another agreement…yeh…right!

KNOW THIS...International Marine & Auto and Great Jokes are no longer located at 30901 Utica Road, Roseville, MI 48066 and their phone numbers have now been disconnected. Chucky Boy and his posse of thieves skated...didn't give their landlord any notice, owing them months of rent too (big surprise). So, where is he now...if you know, I'd be very interested to find out. I think we should ALL start our own website and *uck Chucky Boy just like he did all of us!!!

They are currently operating as "Ez2buyllc", located at 35005 Automation Dr, Clinton Township, MI 48035. (586) 791-2612. They just changed their name (may 2012) from Platinum Image Motorsports / Blue Water Recreation. It appears that the parent company to all of these companies is Blue Water Partnership. Owner is David Goodman. Complaints need to be filed with the Michigan State Attorney General Consumer Affairs Division, and the Federal Trade Commission.
