Sadly, this kind of crime is not punished to the extent we all think it should be.

So true.

Here in Massachusetts, our AG said it not a crime of theft to take in excess of $2,000,000 in project work deposits, do one week of work, and then walk away with 98% of the $. Seems Analogous to what this UK crook did.

This Massachusetts case was resolved via civil legal action to get the fellow’s construction license revoked. Had the projects been for the state government, I’m sure the AG would have pursued the case as a crime. At one point I argued that for less than 25% of the legal fees we spent, “Vinny’s cousin” could have permanently prevented that crook from ever cheating anyone again. More civil voices prevailed…

Ever since, I’ve only used services that bill in arrears (excluding a very small token cash deposit). I have had no problem finding any type of high quality reasonably priced service with this approach, including classic car restoration.

Again, so sorry to hear about your misfortune (someday). This is why we so strongly urge members of this forum to go with well established and well known service providers like VSR1, CK, LJ, SFD, etc.

John, a very old friend was the assistant AG in Ma. when Coakley was the AG. As you know, as physician, I cannot accept any gift over 50 dollars, cannot accept anything from a rep. I had a post it pad with the Viagra label on it and a Viagra pen...the one that you open and it expands (truly, not joking). Against the law for me to have so I gave them to my friend and asked that he use it to leave a message on Martha Coakley's desk that I won't be voting for her for senator.

Again, so sad to hear all this.............

Thanks Gents and everyone else for the kind words and messages.

If folk want to message me, I will more than gladly gather the info and push it forward to the Police.
I am also looking into taking a civil case against him but ultimately not much can be done with out knowing where he is. This is where hopefully something will come up on this form or other social media platforms.

The more info people know / have about him, the smaller an area he has to hide in. As I can see the E9 group / following is pretty tight and its only a matter of time.

Surely there is a UK or Polish version of “Ice Pick Willie” or “Tony the Whack”

I’m not condoning this sort of thing …

I wouldn’t immediately assume the colors are different. Check in with the seller!
I noticed in the FB ad that it explicitly says "Not leather." Either that's a really clever way of throwing the local constabulary off track (while also getting less money for them), or it's not your hides. Hopefully the latter.

Yeah it does kind of look like vinyl.
