I would like to warn all AMEL - owners.
In Turkey, there is a person, called Riza, who operates under EMEK - Marina. He seems to be an appointed Agent of AMEL.
I had ordered from him a few items, when he told me that he has everything in stock and could send them to Australia within 3 days. After we had placed the order and sent the money, we had to chasse him during 3 Month to get the items. He provided us inbetween with fake bills of ladding and thosand excuses. Finaly we got a Bowthruster motor wich was not new and even broken. We had to get it to a specialised workshop to make it working. The price of EMEK was with 3800 € for a new motor !
Further, and to the wors, he did not provide a ordered repair- kit for the Bowthruster. The Money he got for that was 880€. After the intervention of AMEL La Rochelle, Riza wrote that he will reimburse the money for the not delivered goods. He lied as well to me, as to AMEL, when he sayd that he had sent the money. The 880 € never arrived at our account !
For me it is extremely strainge, that AMEL is working with such crucks. I had mailed the story to the GM oF AMEL, but never got any signe from them. Only, M. Billard from SAV, was helpfull to us, but finaly, he did not get Riza to reimburse the collected 880 €.
EMEK marina, not EMEK Sales or Riza answer any mail, asking the prouve of transfert, and no any other reply.
I strongly recommend al AMEL-Owners not to do any business with Riza. If you aske within the forum, you find other Owners, who had bad experiences with Riza.
If anyone want's more details, i have the whole story on my PC.
