Surf And Turf Shipping - Dave Fred also known as Dons Stingray Trans dba Stingray Shippers

Don't fall victim to his bad business practices. He will leave you hanging after he picks up your load for days unable to get ahold of him as he screens his calls.

He states he has the mandatory insurance until he totals your toy and gives you the run around. He trys to set up a payment plan to pay for your losses only to wait on a check that never arrives. Uships safety and trust team is about as useless as a boar hogs got nipples. I dont understand how Uship can condone this sort of behavior and then not back it up when their approved shippers fail you.

He gives you fake dot and Mc numbers, as you can verify them with the FMCSA in which i guess he is hoping your not smart enough to do.

Shippers Beware!

Do not use this company if you value your purchases. No insurance tried to claim on drivers personal insurance.

Dave Fred wants to make a payment plan. LOL. Constant phone tag and of course Uship is no help what so ever in the matter. Uship needs to come to better terms and start screening their drivers that they allow to use the Uship service.

Expensive lesson to learn I guess.

I would love to see Judge Judy rip him apart on tv. Even though it will be a complete loss maybe I need to spend the money on flights and take him to court anyways.

Dave aka Don strikes again, lol.

Notice the comparison in his uship accounts dave fred and stingray trans. He lists two trucks and two drivers yet lists three types of trucks.

The terms and conditions are the same on both accounts. The feedback responses are the same. Both accounts did alot of business with cranky ape.

The stingray trans dba stingray shippers says hes in knoxville but actually in maryville with a 423 prefix, Hmm... The stingray account was open around november 2015 about the time dave fred surf and turf shipping account was suspended and still shows that.

Maybe he will pay up when he is served a subpeono from blount county.

Search on the internet and you will find plenty of info from missing or stolen product or damaged product. He hires drivers of the internet for loads in which case is pretty much brokering.

His Uship account was suspended as the website shows but he has plenty of alias. He is going by the name Don. He claims to have D.O.T. numbers but does not.

He claims to have insurance but does not. The sad thing is nobody can seem to shut him down.

Uship needs to find a better way to screen these drivers because people that trust their valuable toys are having to learn the hard way. You can reach Dave Fred at 1 86* 309 **** if you are looking for him as he seems to owe alot of people money.

I know Dave Fred. .i have moved a boat to California and he did not pay me.

2 years later he ask me to move a boat to boston.. He could not pay the gas and tolls. I took the boat back down and dropped it off at a gas station. That cost him alot of time and money.

He lies all the time. Do not work or ship anything with a lair. .. If you do.

Good luck. You will need it.

Plz feel free to ask me anything about it. Thanks

Stingray Transport-Dave/Don still owes me $200 dollars for only making a partial delivery. I agree with everything on this post.

He went as far as sending me pictures of him in a hospital setting because he did not deliver as promised.

He is a snake in the grass. I gave him negative remarks on UShip, I am reporting him to the BBB, and I will report his theft to the IRS.

It really stinks that people keep falling victim to this mans ways. I would report him to Uships trust and safety team it might at least get that account suspended too. He also has a yelp account that you can add a review.

I would report him to FMCSA as well for not holding proper paperwork including the mandatory 75,000 in insurance required by FMCSA. They confirm this prior to issuing a license that takes 4 to 6 weeks to maintain.

I would definitely contact Uships trust and safety team as its alway worth a shot.

If you paid by credit card I would contact Visa or Mastercard and challenge the charges for incomplete execution of the work order and they will handle the dirty work. Sorry for your loss!

And the Dave/Don strikes again, lol!

Guest

He lives with his mom but his actual business address where he resides in the daytime is 642 lynn circle, maryville, tn near grandview.

Guest

He owes me money too! Promises, promises.

I hear that he is going by "DON" now instead of dave.

Guest

Someone needs to file a complaint with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration! You can do so in private.

Uship should request these document to verify accounts. I looked at his uship pages and he states he has 50,000 in coverage but FMCSA requires 75,000 bond for brokering??? So even if he carried 50,000 it would not meet the federal requirements. You have to send those credentials to FMCSA to even receive licensed numbers in which is probably the reason he doesnt hold these credentials.

Even more amazing there is no local business license in any of entity alias's.

I Also noticed at the fine print on Uship and they state its your responsibility to verify these so called credentials in which Im sure are pretty easy to spoof especially for a witty individual like Mr. David Fred that somehow manages to pull the wool over everybody's eyes.
