Scale Network is a Lake Mary, Florida company that claims to buy used Cisco, Nortel, Sun Microsystems, Extreme, Juniper and Hewlett Packard network and telecommunication equipment. One of their salespeople, Jody Bellio, contacted me after I had responded to an email from, also located in Lake Mary (oddly enough these supposedly different companies have exactly the same address so the whole thing may just be some sort of scam) regarding networking-telecom equipment I may have and might want to sell. My response was such that I did have some networking-telecom equipment that I could sell.

Jody Bellio said that they were interested in the networking equipment and asked me for more specific information, which I provided. Then he called me on the telephone to confirm the information I had provided. Mr. Bellio requested photographs and I told him that the equipment was in storage and not readily available for photographing. I also expressed to him that I would like to have some idea of what he was going to offer per unit before expending resources to retrieve the items from storage. I clearly told him I wasn't interested in receiving a lowball offer.

He replied that he had a client who was interested in the specific units I had and that it would be worth my time to provide the photographs he was requesting. Jody Bellio clearly stated that upon receipt of the photographs he would make an offer to purchase the units through Scale Network.

Based on his assertion I sent personnel to storage to dig the units out and bring them to my office where I took the requested photographs and emailed them to Scale Network. Based on the previous emails and telephone calls I expected to hear back within a day or so. The following afternoon I sent a follow-up email asking if he had received the photos he had requested. I finally received a reply a day later, but instead of making an offer as he had promised suddenly he was not interested in the units, but claimed that he might convince the Scale Network purchasing manager to buy the units if I would tell him a price. He finally made an offer which I did accept, but then I never heard from him again. I sent two separate emails a week apart askng him the status of his offer and he never replied to either of them.

By making a false offer, the salesperson from Scale Networks had simply wasted my time and effort and in not having the temerity to even tell me he didn't want to purchase the items he demonstrated a complete lack of character and honesty. Anyone choosing to deal with Scale Networks should understand the type of salespeople they employ and the manner in which they do business.
