    Funny had a buddy of mine call to say " hey man, I think your stolen warwick has popped up on ebay". Well yes it has. I remember a few Indonesia talkbass guys one hear so I figured I'd see what you all can do.
    Heres the bass when I sold it:

    And here it is on ebay right now.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=879258105


    I'm Not sure how to go about trying to get it, but I do have police reports.

    I believe he should have used my pics for ebay, there much nicer :rolleyes:

    Wow. :( That's got to be a bittersweet thing, seeing that on Ebay now. Like Jeff said, I hope you can get the guy (or at least get the bass back!). Good luck.
     
  4. Brian, That really sucks, I hope there is something you or someone can do to get your bass back. She sure looks mighty pretty.... I have heard stories here in San Diego about people visiting Tajuana seeing thier stolen SUV go by with a Federali driving it...:eek: Um! one more thing maybe I missed somthing but didn't you say that you sold it? I don't understand what happend.

    i think what happened is that
    there was a guy in indonesia with a fake cedit card who was commiting fraud.
    he bought the bass.
    and he never got paid for it!
    so that is stolen!
    and here it is.
    what idiots really!!!
    i sure hope you get your bass back!!

    That really sucks about the bass. I think if I was in your shoes i would be steaming. Good luck with getting some compensation. On a bit of a lighter note... I see that you are located in Memphis! I was wondering how you work test drives... I'd love to drop by and play that Cirrus 5 you have on your website.:D Thanks and good luck with the bass affair.

    moparpunk281 is correct. That whatr happened. I was alittle pissed at my credit card service as well because when I asked if everything looked ok on the credit card they said they didn't see any problems, so I felt safe sending it.

    Feel free to give me a call and let me know when you would like to stop by.

    thanks

  8. The one thing I've learned on ebay is to always, always, always wait for the money to make it to your bank account before you even consider making a visit to UPS.
     
  9. I remember the thread when your bass got stolen. That totally sucks. Good luck getting it back, hope you get it back.

    I think it's possible to give 10 bucks to a poor indonesian, i'm sure he ll cut the fingers of that guy... No fingers can't play the bass....

    a woman in my band got her guitar and amp stolen out of her car a couple months ago... she monitored ebay for the next few weeks, and sure enough, it showed up! she contacted the police and ebay and got all her stuff back!

    hope you have the same good luck getting your stuff.

    Hey dude here is a idea! Make the highest bid on the bass and win it! Then when you win it tell him you need his shipping address so you can send him a american money order! Then when you get the addy report it to the police! But personally me id buy it then tell the guy that you were planning a trip there any way so you will pic it up by hand! Then when you get there shoot the little @#$@ in the hand and take it.. Hehe just kidding there has to be a way you an rip him off and get it back!

    ya the highest bid thing sounds like it would work.
    and if not and it happens to be another bass.
    which i am pretty shure that it isn't. then you got yourself a new bass.
    ask him his adress so you can send a money order. because you want really soon.
    or something like that

    If it's the guy that stole it, he won't give out his real address (Brian already had one address, the one he shipped it to - apparently that wasn't enough for local authorities to get him).

    Id talk to the police again and tell them the thing that is going on here and ask them if there is any way to get this back? Say i can see it selling on ebay now! And this person might tell the addy if he wants his money!

    I guess I need to start a new thread "Tennessee talkbass" so we can get JAUQO III-X attention and give us a heads up where he's playing at NAMM.
