    Great news @MaddAnthony_59 hope the scum rots somewhere!!!!! Glad the mystery is resolved and applaud your persistence with this...... One less scum to worry about in this world.

    Btw, a fellow TB'er that dealt with him locally told me he was a real douche when he was confronted about undisclosed issues with the item.....I'm so glad he will be getting what he deserves.

    Yeah, I drove down nearly 4 hours and bought a Status bass from this guy in Portland face to face deal.
    Turned out he sold me a modded bass, and didnt offer any comp, or drive to meet halfway. He was a real douche and blamed me for 'knowing too much about basses'!
    He's about 50-ish (graying), cucasian,
    and I met him at McDonalds, where he
    claimed he worked as their bookkeeper for two McD's at I-205/Portland and Clackamas.

    Been following this thread. I worked in psychology in a former life, so what people do doesn't shock me... but it still does. Just amazing what this guy did. Please post any updates when you have them!

    Guys like you make this an awesome place

    I hope they don't request it back but if they do, I hope they first give you a very nice option to keep it. Your action probably prevented further claims by this guy and hopefully will give others with the same mindset to think twice

    Well done Sir

    I would have no concerns about working a deal with you in the future if the opportunity arose

    Wheels are moving slowly. I have a Police Report made. In INDIANA! Now I need one from NC. After that it is up to Portland PD & UPS to prosecute Dave Walker. But there are 3 or 4 News Stations considering an Ambush Interview with him once we have police reports and give them more details. I'd LOVE to post That Video here!

    Funny thing @/\/\3phesit0, since he is banned from TB, I don't think he can edit any of his previous posts to delete, so all he can do is watch and wait.

    hence the reason for posting the links to where he published his contact info. I used to be a skip trace researcher. :)
    and he has lots more shenanigans posted elsewhere, he is consistent with his username "bassace77" on many other boards.
    he's still posting stuff of Craigslist (apparently into cars too) and digging a little deeper, some pretty seedy "personal habits" (EWWWWW)

    his address is published (go digging on your own) so he should be pretty easy to locate in order to serve. Let me google that for you

    If he is in fact a book keeper, he should be very easy to track down indeed.

    Additionally committing fraud, through US mail (if he used USPS) and across state lines may make these issues Federal offenses. :D

    Yes, he HAD a good Scam going. Until he decided to make a Deal on a RARE (1 of 4 Dolphins with BE Maple Body) bass back on the Site he Scammed it From, with a Friend of mine! The Arrogance will be his Downfall...
