Protero,Inc. MFG, WARNING

Bought a Protero,Inc Leaf Collection setup for a wright stander. Paid Protero directly in New Hope ,Mn., 1575.00..When they weren't able to deliver,I received a refund. This was on Nov. 18..The check is still worthless and Bob the owner is still jerking me around with " no money " excuses. Now, I'm forced to file with the District Attorney. Just a heads up for those considering a purchase.

Email him a copy of this link...so he knows that you are letting others know about their lack of desire to refund your money.

Mrgreen3,
I also ordered one for my Farris z2000 60inch that was 65 days ago. Bob gave me a lot of broken promises. So today He said it is on the truck. He gave me a tracking # as well WE WILL SEE??. I have 90 days from the time I paid for it, that my credit card company will dispute matters for money retuned back to my account.
I will keep you up to date on this action.
