He claims he does business a lot with people from overseas especially the Japanese and the Chinese who have their own forums that are big. I don't know if there are any sort of complaints there, but I haven't looked either.
Plus there are at least some random rich ass dudes who do buy his stuff. This guy who I think does have an account on head-fi but has never posted and isn't active showed up at a meet to take delivery on an amp. Is that guy aware of the threads? I don't know. Are there probably customers like him who surely aren't? Probably.
Anyway its tough to say without a forsenic accountant really going over his records because then the only source of information is him and like with anything else he says 50/50 chance of truth.
My latest email from him (Yesterday):
Don't worry it will arrive and you will like it. We'll talk tomorrow
and it should be on it's way.
So it's out then? Is there a different tracking #? The one you gave me is still sitting at package transmitted.
No response so i send another:
Yeah just checked it again with no change. Did you get new numbers? Please let me know if so because I will paypal you if that is the case that it is on its way.
No response so I send another:FedEx | Track
Why is this unchanged? Please explain.
(P.S. I censored the tracking # in this post)
So I send another!
Tracking # still unchanged... so all evidence points to it not being shipped. When should I expect you to fly it out to me? Feel free to call me at any time.
I haven't kept this forum up dated but... his prior email to me is this:
Dan, I had many of our shipments picked up and relabeled for USPS
Priority and Express Mail last night. Your amp is much larger and more
valuable than what we can ship with USPS. It will be going out FedEx
for sure in any event. It will be delivered to the FedEx facility and
be shipped by tomorrow, or I will personally fly it out to you.
I noted the dramatic change in tone... I cannot ship it out because my accounts payable person won't let me unless you pay me the balance. I bargained him done to 750 when I get some legit seeming tracking #s... now he won't even respond to my emails to get paid if he isn't yet again trying to lie to me? I wonder if he lost interest since 750 isn't an exciting enough amount laf.
