    Dave Walker is NOT my favorite person. I bought a post fender Kubucki off of the guy and he sent me an empty flight case. Claimed a postal worker must have stolen it enroute. The only problem with his story was that he had to mail it priority USPS because of the value and signature required, so it was put on to a plane. They weigh stuff before they load it onto a plane. It was never in the case AND He printed out his own shipping labels at his house. It was never weighed by the P.O. Till it was at the airport. It was NEVER in the case.
    I was able to get a refund from PayPal because of others complaints (they held the funds waiting for my "ok").
    He almost burned me. I consider myself very lucky for the way my deal with Mr. Walker worked out. Others clearly have not been as fortunate.
    The guy should be thrown to the wolves.
    P.S. He is still creeping around on here so I'm sure he's seen this.
    Last time I posted something he sent me a email telling me to cease and desist.... Blah, blah, blah.

    He's cleaning up the crumbs left behind elsewhere on the internet, like a roach that scurried under a cabinet when you turn on the light.

    Wheels turn Slowly, but UPS & Portland PD are putting the pieces together. I don't see this ending well for our Fraudulent Friend...

  6. Crazy. Terrible that there are people out there like this. Hopefully law enforcement does their job on this.

    Charlie, I believe this guy has been doing this for years and every site/post is a new potential for screwing someone.
    Between talkbass, eBay, craigs, and now reverb. This guy was just waiting for his next scam.
    The good folks on talkbass seem to communicate a little more.

    If that's the case then our TB community has done a great public service.

    From the outside, this looks cut and dried. This guy is going to the Graybar Hotel to pay some of his debt to society.

    @MaddAnthony_59 maybe you should edit your title to reflect this scam con artist so someone doing a Google search that inadvertently pulls up this thread...... if I first saw this thread title, I would think it dealt more with UPS instead of low life con-artist.

    I haven't forgotten about you Mr. Walker...... Just in case you were wondering.

    I wonder if they will let his Dokken tribute band be cellcased.... Oops, I mean show cased in jail?
    They could call it "Almost Dokken.... Uncaged". Or Caged! LOL!

    Surprising my man still has all his teeth, both because of his meth habit and because of the sheer volume of people he's pissed off.
