post #106 of 430

It's sad for Todd, but this amp is ridiculously expensive. More than 15k seriously, where do you stop insanity.

So that's an excuse for Todd to get ripped off???

Off course not, I'm not trying to justify his misfortune. I  just couldn't believe the price.

I think what he was trying to say was that a 15K amp is a lot for an amp.

 

Cheers

The price of high end audio in general is out of control IMO, but that has nothing to do with what happened. This low life needs to get what he deserves, some serious time in prison....

And it is. I just thought it wasn't the time or the place to bring that up.

They've been out of control since the 90's. That's not even EAR's most expensive mono amps. But this is off topic.

 

I wonder why this scum picked up the amps from the FedEx rather than have them delivered.

Wish hunter killers were in real life. Handy for the situation on topic.

Just curious, if some innocent person buys these off from the scumbag without realizing they were stolen.  And the serial numbers are traced to this person, will it be unfair to him/her?

I really wonder what his head-fi name is...

Its best to consult a lawyer in that case. The last time I check, knowingly buying stolen property is also a crime by itself.

Like I said, you got enough for any private detective or bounty hunter to go on. Hire one on the stipulation they will get a percentage of the value of the recovered property. 20% or $3,000 should be enough to get you some results, yeah it would suck to be out 3 grand but isn't it worse being out 15?

 

You and by extension, we, aren't going to be any good at catching the guy.

 

If you really want to do this yourself then start thinking like a bounty hunter. If it were me and I had to find the guy on my own, I'd use VOIP caller ID spoofing to get around the guys call block, provided he hasn't already ditched the cellphone. Then pretend to be from a local radio station, magazine reseller, whatever and announce they've won tickets to a cruise etc, anything to bait the guy into revealing more information, or agreeing to a meet.

 

You would be surprised how stupid people can be when they think they are going to get something for little or no effort.

 

A vicious person might spoof the persons phone number with SIP anonymizers (VOIP) and make a bomb threat or something and it would be traced back to the perps phone number etc.

 

 

PS don't get on my bad side. :)

 

 

 

Oh one more thing, I can't imagine too many of these expensive amps get sold or installed even in some place as large as Los Angeles. I don't know anything about these amps but do they need any special equipment to set up and use them? For instance special cabling, mounting hardware like a rack, professional installation etc, and maybe call some local shops that might do this kind of work and find out if they've sold any parts or done any install work.

 

 

god damned it, sorry for all the edits but one last thing, most businesses have insurance against fraud, theft, etc. Call your insurance company and find out if you can make a claim.
