I have no business or other relationship with Marcus Thompson except that he owes me money

Pittsboro, NC - I am a local graphic designer and businessman licensed in Pittsboro. I have been in this business for 25 years.

I appreciate Dwain Richie and the others that have come forth for their candor regarding dealings with Marcus Thompson. I too have had a similar experience with Mr. Thompson and know of several other individuals that have as well.

Earlier this year Thompson announced, on the Chatham Chatlist, that he and I were “partners” in This was never the case, legally, formally, or otherwise. I want to make it clear to everyone that I have no business, or other relationship with Thompson except that he owes me money for work that I performed at his behest, and that he owes me work that I contracted and paid him for which he has never completed. He does not return phone calls or respond to emails and he currently displays some of my design work on his web site without legal authorization.

I sent Thompson a Cease and Desist demand letter to stop displaying my work on by certified mail on 11/22/13, but he has never picked it up or signed for it. The USPS left him a delivery notice on November 23, 2013, 2:35 pm.

I agree with Mr. Richie’s advice to “BEWARE of Marcus Thompson.” My dealings with Marcus Thompson have been completely unsatisfactory and the cause of great distress for myself and my clientele.
