Stingray Transportation - Theft from David aka Don Fred

Hires/brokers you off of craigslist.Gives you a list of items to buy and a company gas card then sends you on your way.

Your only contact is mostly by text as he never answers his phone unless he needs something like a confirmation code for uships payment process and the end of the load. So *** he will spend 30 dollars to overnight a check instead of spending 5 bucks on two day priority mail. How desperate for money and that should have been a red flag right there. He pays you the first couple of times and gains your trust after battling the paperwork he tries to *** on for every penny he can get away with in hopes that you catch it and question it.

After the second or third paycheck its all down hill. He rights and checks and says hold them until such and such date. By the time your back on the road and he comes up with some sob story of why you cant deposit the money your 2000 miles from home and he cancels your gas card after you dropped off a east coast to west coast load. He made his money and now here you are stranded at thanksgiving hoping to eat dinner with your wife and kids but you cannot get home because you don't have a dime to your name.

I don't understand how a person could be so cold hearted. He definitely must be a poor manager at money. Looks like he filed bankruptcy recently, wife left him, and he lives with his mom? I guess that explain the desperation for ripping people off and ruining lives.

I just wish i didn't put this review off for so long. I just happened to start researching him.

I found out for all you other ripped off drivers of this guy that if you have any of your uncashed checks from him he could possibly have a bench warrant sworn out for him and could be eligible to pay 3 times the face value of each check.Maybe a weekend at blount county detention center might wake him up.

He also owns Surf and turf shipping and Stingray transport. He apparently doesn't operate under surf and turf shipping as the website is down. Stingray transport is his uship id but it states on the uship webpage that they are stingray shippers of knoxville. However, they are located in maryville and have a phone number with a 423 prefix. Hum....Sounds like he is all over the board. His terms and conditions are pretty much the same on his stingray transport and dave fred surf and turf shipping terms and conditions. He lists on uship that they have 2 trucks and 2 drivers but he lists three models of trucks, and feedback thanking various drivers and of course Don aka Dave Fred,hum...Notice both companies do alot of business with cranky ape on both accounts, hum....Notice that stingray transport started their uship account in November of 2015 about the time that the dave fred surf and turf shipping uship account was suspended by uship.
This page still exists:
Just a little info to add. He owes me $$$$ too!

What a ***! He owes me money too. I tried finding arrest records on him with no luck. However I see one of his daughters that is associated with his business address was incarcerated twice in blount county jail for driving under the influence. I hopes shes not a driver, lol...
