I believe the owner of Seacam Subsea use to be part of the equinox video housings. Anyhow, you'd do better to complain to the Better Business Bureau. Your legal course would be to take him to small claims. Also for your next purchase, put it on the credit card. Easier to stop payment with a cc rather than lose hair and sleep. Any business that doesn't accept cards, well I'd walk.

In my opinion, the rest of your post is more effective at sharing your experience with the company, and there is not (yet) a need to make general statements that are harder to back up.
Hopefully, we'll get more folks with Seacam Subsea housings to chime in here.

The leader of our dive team, Scott Cassell is featured on the website. We were using his system and have really put it to the test. But after the first few times out we started to get problems with it and leaks that fried a FX-1 camera. We have not requested to be removed from his website however now that it has come to our attention that our problem was not an isolated case we may change our mind.
More important is that nothing was done and we are also out money and time. We have not had any problems with the Sea and Sea housings and have been very happy with them.
In my opinion it is a bad idea to buy anything from that company and I echo the call that Crusty put out.

I was at his house on Thursday--took the HB cops with me to make sure I didn't get arrested. I confronted him about the money he owes (won a judgement in Westminster CA small claims court). He said he wasn't going to pay...I recommended him to two other folks here in Hawaii (before I had my problems) and they are having control problems and leaks. This guy is a pathological liar and seems to feel that he is in the right--I wish I could get away with kicking his ass--but I know I'll end up in jail... I hope you have better luck with him--keep me posted!

IMHO beating the wind out of him will only help to fuel his excuse tank on why he is such a looser....
"I would have had your orders ready but some crazy diver beat me up and I just dont know why?!"
Let that guy founder in his own life......
Besides if you spend 1 minute in cuffs because of him then he has robbed from you and then put you in jail because of it. besides if you break a bone in your hand you will have discomfort when loading your gear into your new housing. B)
His will come......just not from us.

If you want to have more fun, fill out a small claims or app which is an order for appearance for a judgment debtors asset hearing. When he fails to show, then it is just a routine matter for the judge upon your request to issue a bench warrant for his arrest.
