Lonnie Holdaway and the Hurricane CD reissues scam


Recommended Posts

I would guess not...a lot of tough talk with absolutely no follow through, unfortunately.

 

Shame. I was hoping to read about an ass whoopin. ;)

Did "David" carry on contacting people claiming he'd been scammed as well? There were lots of mentions of legal action, getting the police involved, etc. Did that ever happen?

 

Adriano needs to answer this one, I guess. As far as I know he has been the hardest by this asshole.

I remember when this went down. He made all these CDR's for anyone who asked so the trust would be there. What a fucking thief....Wow. I didn't send him anything for the reissues, thank God. I feel sorry for those who did. Wonder if he did ever get his ass kicked for this....

I was one of his "victims", even though one of the smaller ones (app. $120). What actually happened to this "piece of shit" ? Does anyone know ?

I know most folks never got any money back...but do we know if he ever got in any trouble over this? the way I was buying rarities back then I could have easily fallen for this...I just remember a small voice telling me to not send him money...I asked him to send me one cd as proof he had these rarities and then I would have ordered alot...he quickly disappeared....those were crazy days...I wonder whatever happened to the evil Ramirez Brothers!?

I got all of mine back but I was threatening to drive to his house & pound him. It was just over $100 if memory serves. There were many who got burned badly...he should have gone to jail.

I am so sorry that happened to you Adriano. That scumbag got me for over $120 but that's peanuts compared to the people who lost thousands.

 

And I bet this punkass bitch is still out there scamming people. He seriously does need an ass kicking.

I know this was addressed in a thread or two earlier this year, but in case anyone missed it:

Of particular interest, the last post in the thread:

 

http://www.melodicrock.com/phorum52/read.php?1,944362,945905#msg-945905

 

And for the cherry on top, his GEMM store has been updated TODAY:

 

http://www.gemm.com/c/search.pl?&table=sellers&seller=GMV301315&view=WELCOME

 

He's either just fired it up again, or has done no transactions there. Either way, it looks like he's on the prowl again.

What a douche....bad thing is he could be among us under a different name or anonymous.

He's not too busy at GEMM right now. 15 items listed. 1 out of 1 items ordered in last 180 days was not available. 0 items shipped in past 180 days.

I felt bad for everyone here who got taken. I'm glad I am a cheap SOB and didn't partake.

I just remember how convincing he was and how everyone was so excited. Remember, back then stuff wasn't being re-released left & right. He even added the titles of the bonus tracks. I remember that feeling of being so excited. Dickhead....

i remember that...he really went all out with the deception...I remember thinking nothing of the reissues...it was the rarities from his collection that had me nervous...when you say you have 2 rock boulevards..one sealed...you went a bit too far...the reissues seems legit with all the info he was putting out....I really believed he was doing those...I just had originals of everything and didnt need new releases..even with bonus tracks..
