Are one of the dozens of audiophiles who have paid Brad Vojtech of Revelation Audio Labs for a cable and not gotten it? We are now forming a support group for anyone who has been a victim. We will provide helpful information as to who you can contact to help you, as a victim of fraud, work towards stopping Brad Vojtech from scamming other innocent victims.
NOTE: He is still occasionally shipping cables, usually USB and iPod cables. But most orders, especially for speaker cables, are not being filled, probably because he doesn't have the raw materials to make them. DON'T TAKE A CHANCE! Complaints about unshipped cables go back to 2006!
Before we get to the helpful links and information, here are a few things you can do.

FIRST, talk about Revelation Audio Labs and Brad Vojtech on every audiophile and AV forum you can find. IMPORTANT NOTE: Do a search first to make sure no one else has posted this notice. If you don't see a thread with "Revelation Audio Labs" and "Brad Vojtech" in the title, start one. This will assist anyone who is searching for information to find what they need. Also, when discussing RAL and Vojtech in the individual posts on the thread, make sure you actually include the keywords "Revelation Audio Labs" and "Brad Vojtech" in the body of your comment. This will help our complaints show up high in the google rankings, hopefully warning anyone who is looking for RAL cables.
Keep in mind many forums are cautious and will reflexively lock or delete the thread. Don't give up! Write the forum staff and ask them to reconsider, as a kindness to the audiophile community. Ask them to carefully read this message and check the links to prove we are a serious group with a very real and official complaint, which they can confirm by contacting the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Office of the Attorney General, State of Florida (links below).

SECOND, please include cross-links to threads on other forums regarding this situation. Again, this will help them to show high in the google results.

THIRD, please write a short description of your experience and send it to Stereophile, The Absolute Sound, and any other audio magazine or website you can find. Many of us have written both Stereophile and TAS, but as of yet they have not chosen to investigate for themselves or publish any sort of warning. Keep the pressure on, but politely. An investigation and report by one of the major magazines would be extremely helpful in preventing Brad Vojtech from defrauding more people.
Stereophile: john.atkinson@sourceinterlink.com
The Absolute Sound: support@avguide.com
Positive Feedback: drobinson@positive-feedback.com
(Feel free to add more contact information for other magazines or websites.)

FORTH, pass along the basics of your case and any non-private information to us. We are putting together a master file of all cases. This is required in order to get some of the more serious legal and governmental agencies to pay attention to our case (eg, filing it with the FBI as an "ongoing criminal enterprise"). Please pass along what you can, the advantages will be enormous. Supply only that information you feel comfortable with sharing, or that has been made public when you filed your complaints. If you have previously contacted any governmental organizations regarding this case, a contact and case number will be extremely helpful so all complaints funnel to the same person. Information regarding his use of the United States Postal Service to "not ship" cables while providing alleged USPS tracking numbers (via forged "Click and Ship" invoices) is EXTREMELY helpful. The US Postal Inspection Service is notoriously aggressive, but while they are already looking into this, we need to provide them with enough cases to move us up on their list.

FIFTH, contact PayPal and your credit card company to report your loss, even if the time limit on getting a refund is past! Vojtech is famous for dragging things out and making promises until the deadline for disputes has passed, then ignoring all further communications. Even if you can't get you money back, PayPal and the credit card companies takes these complaints very seriously and if enough of them pile up, he will have his PayPal account suspended, which would be a significant victory in protecting others from future losses.

Here is a list of current threads on other sites. Please quote this section in your reply and if you post on another forum, please include them and a link to this thread in your post. (Again, this is to help with google ranking.)

To ALL who want to get their money back from RAL and Brad Vojtech! 
PayPal accepted my quote about cheating of this shop, they opened a case and close it at the same time because of 45 days missing(it was obvious) to make an account history record...BUT
they said if there will be the same requests from another users they will open the investigation in a private order and unite them. Don't miss chance to get your money!
Thank you.
