@adespotoskyli: But i already admitted that Sick's business practice was unacceptable. i feel bad for everyone affected, from customers to merino. BUT the only point i was making is that Merino could have maybe avoided all this if they did their homework. Hand shake deals don't work. Peace.

@adespotoskyli: You missed the point. Try reading it again, but slower this time.

@justanotherusername: that's where you are wrong: The partial payment should have been when placing an order, the balance prior to shipping. There are many companies that can provide credit references, including banks. I'm in Canada and i can probably find a company to give me a credit rating on a company from England. I'm not talking about these online scammers. A legitimate company. From your standards, you would produce whatever amount of frames for someone without getting a credit reference, getting a credit report, getting some sort of deposit and not even know who you're doing business with? Dude... Wake up. Marino didn't do their due diligence and if you can't see that as an alternative to why they are in this shit, there is nothing further to discuss here. On that same token: I need 1000 frames - Can you make them for me?. I'll pay you when they are ready.... haha...

@justanotherusername: Maybe you should also open up a bit too. By the looks of it, Sick didn't come from money, so the lack thereof was probably from the start, and Marino still got into business with them. I am sure that Sick's behaviour were there from the get-go, yet Marino took a chance. They got into business with dudes that have zero business experience and probably didn't even have a good credit reference. Just saying...

@justanotherusername: I agree with you but the law might be looking at this differently. To be clear, everything Sick did is unacceptable IMHO. I am not suggesting what they did was right, but rather suggesting that Marino, small or big, is now also not acting properly. As a Mom & Pop’s shop, i would do exactly the same. "Sell their products and recoup as much back as possible, so bills can be paid". I would do that. But the Law might look at it from a different angle: Sick has money issues and maybe or maybe not, they tried to make a arrangements with Marino, maybe more then once, (i'm sure) and they probably came short of promises of payment, hence why Marino got pissed and started off-loading the frames. The thing is you are not allowed to sell someone else's product unless someone, usually a court, gives you the right to that product and gives you a favorable resolution. All i am saying is that all these "I'm going to sell your frames because you didn't pay" seems to be very premature. That's also assuming that Sick is NOT business partners with Marino. If they are, then ya, sell their frames off. If they aren't, then they have no right to do so. Proceedings like this take years to get resolved and therefore, it's always better to come into an arrangement with the failing party. Sick’s reputation is gone down the drain, but what Marino did might just be the last nail in the coffin for Sick. There were damages to Sick’s reputation before, but because of what Marino just did, I think there are more damages now, hence why I was only suggesting that they might have a case. We also don’t know everything that happened that is not disclosed here.

@TheMountainViking: wrong analogy. You are obviously missing the point. If Apple does pay a supplier, regardless the reasons, does the factory have the right to sell their product without a court order or judgement? Of course not.

Despite late payment and how flaky Sick has been, Marino has no right selling Sick's product, unless there was a court judgement. I'd say Sick has a good case to file a lawsuit against Marino
