This situation has gone on long enough! Sadly, CONN-hunter was (apparently) taken in by an unscrupulous person! His options, as stated before, are limited. A criminal trial would do him no good and (in all probability) LO Burton would get off scott free! What is needed in this situation is a civil suit and not in small claims court!!! You sue this sc*mbag for actual damages and then you nail his *ss with punitive damages!! At the very least you can get his business filing for bankruptcy (which, when you think of it, is probably what he would do in order to not have to pay anything....) and who knows? Maybe you'll even get enough money back so you can replace your sax!
Although I'm amazed that this would not be considered a criminal act.
Probably a bad analogy, but if I borrowed somebodies car and removed their high-end rims/tires and replaced them with 4 spare 'donuts' would they have no criminal recourse.
Oh, I also removed the stereo, but did plug it up with a piece of sheet metal.
The only way this is going to stop is if someone (or a few) take him to court.
If not only those on boards like this will know to avoid Lance.
