Lonnie Holdaway and the Hurricane CD reissues scam

Recommended Posts

I just got this email from Lonnie's nephew and he wanted someone to pass it along to the HH folks so here it is:

Hi Everyone,

This is David, Lonnie's nephew. This was the easiest way to let everyone know what has happened. Lonnie was in a severe car accident yesterday morning. We have had an unusual amount of snow and ice the last few days, and he was on his way to UPS to mail some items as well as pick some up, when an 18 wheeler came thru an intersection and lowed him in the drivers door. Lonnie was airlifted yesterday afternoon to the Trauma Center in St. Louis, where he underwent surgery for a collapsed lung. I have not been able to leave to go up there due to the weather here, but i spoke with my grandmother(Lonnie's mom) and as of this morning he is in serious but stable condition. I would just like to ask each of you to say a prayer and pass this information on to all his friends, because i know there are alot more people out there that were not in his address book.

I know he has alot of deals going on right now with all the Hurricane Reissues and all the other cd's we have been working on, so if there is anything outstanding please be patient and we will get it all sorted out for you. There are only 3 of us now, and with Lonnie being the "brains" of the company, we are all doing things we have not had to do before. So this is alot of unchartered territory for us. But I just want everyone to know we are going to do our best to keep things on par just like Lonnie would do. If anyone has any questions or needs any help with something please email us and we will get back to you asap. I know Lonnie is a member of the Heavy Harmonies community, so if someone could please let all his friends there know what is going on it would be greatly appreciated.

I will email everyone again later today with the address to the Hospital Lonnie is in, in case any of you want to drop him a card or well wishes. And if any of you want to email them here I will be more than happy to print them off and see that he gets them.

Lastly, if there are any outstanding orders please email me and i will get on that pronto for you and get whatever info i can to get it squared away for any of you. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I will be in touch with you all soon.

Sincerely
David Holdaway

Just for those who may stumble across this thread unaware, and don't read through it to the end, this so-called "accident" never occurred. It was an attempt at a diversion, after Lonnie and/or his nephew David ripped off the community members here (and others) to the tune of several thousand dollars for pre-orders of "reissues" that never existed and were never authorized by the bands involved.

Sorry guys,

The whole affair stinks more than a dead fish. Good "ole" Lonnie already

sent me a fake UPS waybill 10 days ago (which has not been signed or

stamped by UPS), which got approved by UPS that he never delivered the

goods, after he cashed nearly 5000$ from me.

Same thing two days ago - he confirmed that he'll ship again, but the

UPS driver didn't left a waybill - that's completely BS !

 

I'll contact paypal right now to get my money back and I'll inform the

public through melodicrock. com that there is a heavy rip off going on

with this company.

 

If you already have pre-paid your copies I can only advice to cacell the

payment if you have used paypal.

The thing that concerns me more is that he received the original e-mail...so he knows what is going on. Wish I did...

That's how I feel too...I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt also. I have a bad feeling though that the publicity he is going to get from some will not be too good and I hope it doesn't hurt his business. I feel bad even discussing this...his health is most important right now.

My thoughts and prayers are with lonnie at this time. I just now checked my record and i did 3 deals with Lon and 2 of those he send me extra stuff FREE. He also promptly send me Cash for what he had orderd from me, don't know the guy personally but he comes off as a stand-up guy.

 

If anyone has problems contacting him or his family for whaterver reason i have his mailing adress from our last deal if you need to contact him.

 

Godspeed Lon.
