Unfortunately there are a few unscrupulous people out there who get in the way of honest folks trying to do business and enjoy their hobbies. Following are the names of those that have crossed MY path.
| May, 2012
Took phone order for 2 boxes of .38 S&W for a
total, including shipping, of $87.95. Luis gave me his word that
he would send the remittance by "the next day" which would've
been 5/12. In return for that promise, I shipped immediately and
UPS tracking confirms delivery 5/17/12. Beginning 5/26, and over
the next few days, I phoned and left messages asking that he
call me to discuss the matter. All such calls were ignored. An
email (pasted below) was sent 5/31 and also went unanswered. A
2nd & final email, also pasted below, produced the same result. So,
after 3 years of nothing to report on this page, we have a new "Liar,
Cheat & Deadbeat": LUIS FLORES.
forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

|March/April, 2009. While
setting up at the Louisville Show on 3/6, the following email
(excerpted) was rec'd at home & related to me by my wife:
Delta, PA, 17314
|July, 2008. I bought & pd for 6 bxs of antique ammo, 2 bxs of
which were described as follows (copied & pasted from his orig
July 1st email):
1 box of 20 40-82 Winchester sealed in box
1 box of 50 1873 Winchester ammo The seal is still intact.
After negotiating a price he emailed the following statement, also copied & pasted from his (7/3) email: I will hold the check until you are satisfied.
I sent the check and on 7/11 rec'd the following: Did you receive the ammo? I will be on the road this weekend and will check my e-mail often. Let me know.
To which I responded on 7/11:
since my last email (and 2 subsequent phone calls) ...
I've heard nothing and am wondering what's going on. I
did contact my bank yesterday & found you had cashed the
$1300 check although you'd said that wouldn't happen
till all was satisfied regarding our transaction. As I
thought we had an agreement based on mutual trust I'm
surprised & disappointed in your lack of response as
well as the fact that the check was cashed before we
discussed the exceptions we found in your shipment.
Please be in touch.

|Feb, 2007. I bought & pd for ($299.15) early Winchester .22
Short Hol Pt box on ebay (item#130075347850). Listed (as is
necessary on ebay) as empty box but when I emailed him to ask
about the availability of the contents I rec'd the following
"There [sic] original contents is still in the box. It is unused. I will be happy to GIFT the contents to the high bidder upon the high bidders request. Thanks." (I have hard copy of these emails as proof.)
Box arrived empty. Phone call to seller got promise to come up with the missing shells but they never showed up & further calls went unanswered/unreturned. His website sez he operates under "The Golden Rule". Yeah, right.
