Well, that clarifies it a bit; i was mainly trying to figure out (if when you sold me a scangauge for example) you were trying to say that was from you, but this X-1 wasn't, as that would clearly being confusing for people to grasp. ^^Really? so you provided him with the old owner contact info (working or not), the new owner info, etc? I promise i'm well aware of how businesses operate. An LLC is not the same as a corporation on paper. HVM isn't just HVM, it's the person who's filed on that LLC paperwork with the state, and unless he has dissolved that LLC, he may be liable still for what he's done. The LLC public records is the best place to start to handle it legally. You shouldn't post it on the web; but you should be providing it to the customer. Example: you're that cashier, you don't tell the customer "sorry, the old manager left and the new one has nothing to do with your sale so i can't put you in contact with him". If the new manager "takes over" in any fashion, these are the issues he's obligating himself to deal with (Deal with not necessarily meaning he has to refund money, etc). He wanted it to just be a piece of cake to take it over? It's not an attack on him, but it doesn't mean either owner should get to just deal with it when they're ready. That's the part that's bullshit from what i've read here.
