heavyharmonies posted a topic in Good and Bad Traders, Buyers, and SellersThis is a brief summary of the long thread found here, for those who may be new to the community. In short: Lonnie Holdaway of Blytheville Arkansas, formerly an active member of this community, used his credibility to prey upon and defraud a multitude of people both here and elsewhere, out of thousands of dollars. He created a phony record label (Never Say Die Records, later changed to RnR Records), announcing several sought-after reissues, including several Hurricane albums. No permission was ever obtained for any of the material. He took preorders from the public as well as several well-known retailers, only to abscond with the funds. He tried to fool people by inventing a fake automobile accident, hoping to play on people's sympathies. After being caught in several lies, he repeatedly promised to refund the affected parties, but only a few token small refunds were ever made. If you choose to buy from, sell to, or trade with, Lonnie Holdaway, prepare to lose your funds and/or your merchandise. In the event that you have been scammed by Lonnie, you need to do 2 things: go to the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center and file a complaint: http://www.ic3.gov Be clear, concise, and do NOT use inflammatory language or rhetoric, or profanity.
