    Don' ask questions. It is considered "trolling" in some locations.

    You Da Mann

    Mann

    I will owe you big time and as stated above I would definitely be up for compensating you for your gas at least.

    I am still trying to work via the State PD have a call in right now to provide more information

    I am also going to try and canvas his neighbors by phone and see if anyone has any info about his location.

    I will keep updating this thread as I get more info.

    PA State Trouper

    I just got off the phone with a State Trouper from PA.

    Looks like they are at least going to investigate this and see what is up

    Trouper said that Chris Still have a license that is linked to the Address in Greencastle.

    He did say he had another active address and that he was going to try and contact him and get to the bottom of this.

    The bad news for Chris is that if I am forced to use the Troopers to recover my Mags it will result in a charge against him and he wiil be going to trial.

    I was asked if I understood that and would I be willing to come up to PA for that if required. I said that I would.

    I hate that is is comeing to this but I see no other way.

    Bottom line you and he had a deal, he didnt follow through and you cannot locate him to recover your multi-thousand dollar investment.

    So go for it!

    here is the only answer i can give right now due to the police situation.

    http://www.automags.org/forums/showthread.php?t=247509


    two quick side notes that i want to say that i noticed real quick on this page while making this post.

    Josh Nearchos is my brother and has been on here looking at buying stuff and so forth. that account has no part with me. I have one and only one account on here: "Chris Nearchos". so please dont hassel him. take everything up with me as i am the one that failed you guys.

    2nd,
    Swamp, I don't blame you for what you did. you only did what was right and could only think the worst has happened. If i owned what you are waiting on, i would be doing the same thing if i was in your place. If you do go through with it, no hard feelings, i completly understand. But because of my life situation right now, I really have to beg for a second chance and get the situation fixed for you.


    I will update and so forth on whats going on once i get things sorted out with swamp and the others.

    my greatest apology to everyone,
    -Chris

    Yes, you are correct. I do have them. But i have not let that project down. It has shaped up to what might be a huge breakthrough in paintball and will be well worth everyone's time and help in that project.

    I will be getting all those boards/frames back out to their owners now that i have completed the project. But the owners will get their promiced outcome. So please just wait as i finish the final programming and get the patent processed.

    Ive had problems with 2 of his products and there is no solution in sight for a fix.

    He also went around and negated on a HUGE deal we had between one another. Lots of money was invested on my end. Money that can not come back to me at this point.

    ~ P8nt




    I totally agree with you P8nt. I am in no way a "longstanding member". I have only done little compared to the real longstanding members who have really done something for the platform.

    And Yes, I have done some good things and you are correct, they are not the best of products to be released for the mag. I admit, they do have some problems sometimes, But I have always set out to fix any problems when the buyers tell me. but a good bit of the time, they dont tell me, so i couldn't help/fix the problem. which is also why i had my items at prices where i only made $5 at max.

    Unfortantly, I do not have 20-30 years of production/engineering knowledge. I am only going off what i have learned from the books/reallife/and practice.

    And if i was you, i would be right along your same lines and spreading the word of what your buisness outcome with me was. cause it is true! I did let you down and didnt get the board you desired released. I am sorry and thats all i can say. I honestly have nothing more i can give to fix the situation. I wish i could have fixed the situation, but i cant now and can only take the blame.

    Have I had this gear at his place I would contact any number possible to know what is going on. He was a bright kid finishing university from what I gathered. So either something went insanely wrong or we got fooled badly

    I am glad you enjoyed your dealings with me. I wish i could have made it that way for everyone. but I have failed a good many people right now and only deserve the outcome. For i have only brought this upon myself and noone else is to blame.

    and yes, I did contact you and few other great Ao'ers about investing in project. In which is moving and being completed. And if you guys and girls want to know what it was for, it was the following.

    - cnc
    - plastic smelter
    - and basic startup cost of high production (i.e. have parts stocked).
    **- patent cost <-- what was added with the edit to the post**

    and yes, the return of the investment was high. but whatelese can i do to find some investers willing to invest in a small business at a time (which still is) hard on the pocket. and i didnt want to wait two or three years to try and fund it all on myself as being a college student is very very hard to do. I have the knowledge but not the pocket. and to be honest, when what i have instored does come to production, money will be no problem which is why i was comfortable giving a high return.


    Finally,

    Bunny--> I am honestly shocked you have not expressed your true anger towards me. For if i was in your shoes, i would be out with a pitch fork and fire. You are the one person that i have let down not just now, but also once before (big time). But i would honestly believe you would have every right to yell and could not argue against it.

    for the people who dont know, over the summer i had taken on a small project with the great help of bunny. I was wanting to replicate a SFL stock style breech so that i could help out all the SFL and X-mag owners that were in need of replacment or wanted more breeches. unfortantly when I went to mold the SFL breech he had sent me for the project, the mold material i used ATE at the ANNO of the breech, caused spotting in the breech metal, and left it in a nasty state. Fortantly, probably the only reason I was not hung on the spot for that by AO is because he was able to hide that mistake of mine when he had the breech reannoed with the rest of the SFL.

    I know the spare main board and ace and other items i sent back to try to make up for the problem wont ever fix what i did wrong and i am really sorry for that. And having your last two boards that needed done makes me really indebt to you and owe you big time for all the problems i have caused you.




    I know everyone is now tired of me just taking the blame and saying sorry. But that is all i can do at the this moment right now. I know its not even close to what needs to be done, but its all i can do right now.

    My greatest apologies,
    -Chris

    Chris I am glad you came out for this issue. You seemed like a good guy and was very surprised to read about these facts. That said life can sometimes takes bad turns: I guess the only main downfault was the lack of communication, which is always the case in business.

    Thanks for keeping AO informed

    Chris

    I have not heard from the PD. I hope that they are going to give me an option to work this out in a civilized fashion. All I can say at this point from my end is that once I get my property back in a timely fashion I will not be vindictive in any way.

    Update: Just received everything back from chris that I needed. I received a tracking number and he packaged everything really well. It sucks it had to come down to this but I'm very pleased with the work that had been done.

    I don't know whats been going on with Chris but hopefully he can come back and redeem himself. Just letting you other guys that it's almost over! No hard feelings Chris. this went alot better then the TAG Predator board....

    Package

    I recieved my first package as expected. Second package is due any day.

    As above wish it had not come to this but I am relieved to have both my X mags back in my hands and the work I asked him fore is done.

    he seems to be working in the right direction so hopefully soon he can get everyone taken care of

    Final Resolution

    Just wanted to state that I did get all my stuff back from Chris and he did complete all the work asked for.

    IF he keeps on this path I can see doing biz with him again down the road.

    I can say it was painless but in the end it came out fine.

    I will be having surgery tomm and off the boards for a while. I will return in a few weeks when my hand has healed from carpal tunnel surgery.

    Grrrrrrrr

    Anybody ever get their Boards back from Chris? I have 4 markers sitting here without boards and Chris has yet to answer any of my emails or messages. I would even settle for the old boards back so I could go throw some paint.

    I can't believe you guys are being this calm about this. Letting it go this long. I would have gotten on a plane and bashed the guys door down. It's your stuff not his! Start filing police reports to get your stuff and money back. The coward only came out when he was facing legal action. Do it again but this time follow through with it!

    according to AO, he hasn't posted since 02-27-2010 and the last post made is lost.

    i really don't know if everything was handled, but i think it just ended up that all this business went down like the TAG boards, or Mongoose stuff. its sad that AO has a long history of good people(at the time, not the end result) with great ideas, but little return on them.

    Wow, haven't seen that name in a while. I was actually able to get my ACE/Emag boards back from him with no issues. He seemed like an okay guy, but I don't think he was ready to invest the amount of time/energy that was needed for the amount of projects /services he was trying to provide. The only thing I have left is an old e-mail address.... chrisnearchos@hotmail.com
