Does Saddleman actually exist?

I'm starting to think I got scammed here. I e-mailed 3 different people at Saddleman a bunch of times this week and got nothing in return. I just called and they said there office hours are Mon to Fri from 8 to 5, then the message promptly said "I'm sorry but our offices are currently closed". That makes me ask: does anyone actually have a saddleman seat? Does anyone know anyone with a saddleman seat? Are they really a company? Do they actually exist or did I give an internet scammer 410 of my hard earned dollars over a month ago? I hope I'm jumping the gun here I really do.

Thanks for any help...

If you used Visa to pay, they have a refund guarentee if you get scammed, I believe. I`m not sure about Mastercard or Paypal, etc.

You sound a bit paranoid. but I think Saddleman does exsist. I have seen their wares over the years.

Their website was updated this month, so someone is there. If they went out of business they would not still be paying for phone services.

Try calling them durring office hours. Try every extension until you actualy get to talk to a human being. Leave mulitiple voice mails expressing your worry.

If all else fails, contact another business in their area and ask them if they have a for sale sign on their door..............

I did overlook the time zone, good call. Cali is 3 hours earlier than me in Philly so they still should have been open. I'll try again today and tomorrow and Wednesday and the next day after...
