I ordered something online and received the Bakes Listing to the same email address. I did not receive Bakes listing to my MalibuCrew.com email address

I'm not sure that I like the sound of that. If they're getting email addresses from this site, they apparently haven't read the Terms of Use, as that is not allowed.

I doubt they are. Bakes has an company that is brokering the deal, searching buyers, they probably got (I am guessing) Bakes basic customer email list (if at all, Bill Baker (Bakes) sent something directly to his customers when he announced his plans).

I assure you that we are not doing that.

Correct, Falco/sult is the company brokering the deal. This is the letter e-mailed that went out to all of our customers so they were kept in the loop with Bill's plans with Bake's so no customer was blind sided.

Maybe he bought something from them, like a rope or vest, in the past and is on their mailing. Just building on a sale.........that's all!!! ROFL.gif

i.e."We noticed last week that you purchased a O'Neil vest, we are also offering all '09 Wakeboards 15% off, and hell while your picking up a wakeboad, why not just buy the dealership!!!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

We should Biggrin.gif Did you buy into the Malibu Dealer you run now or did you start it up?

Now that is up-sell!!

Pretty sure that's a true story.

I won't be surprised if a customer made that a true story at Bake's. We have so many customers passionate about boating and Malibu. I think that is what Bill is trying to find so the business keeps the same feel that he has built for 21 years.

I didn't get any email and I have purchased through Bakes. Maybe they don't think I can afford their asking price?

I just want to offer Bakes a public apology for making a reactionary, incorrect assumption. The email addresses were not harvested from this site, & I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions in the way that I did. Bakes is a stand-up operation that wouldn't do something like that.
