    August 28th I ran across the 2005 Bennington Pontoon Boat. Praise the Lord,

    Someone started this sight. It definetly sounded to good to be true, but he wanted to deal today or tomorrow. We would not bite unless we could see it. It did not seem right. I put in Shane Rodden on Google search and this sight came up. Thank you. You were a huge help in us not getting scammed. I hope they catch this scammer. Sincerely. Pat Price

    Pat, thanks for the reminder of who gets the praise. I’m just a footsoldier! 🙂

    And give yourself some credit for the skepticism … had you not experienced that bad gut feeling, you never would have Googled him.

    Thanks for your kind words.
