This is for you Roy Garay!

Recommended Posts

I hate to do this but I can't hold it anymore inside me:

I bought a collection of antique absinthe spoons from Roy Garay back in September 2012. I paid 3 600 ($5 000) but never received anything.

Roy was a known collector (MerdeVerte on the forums), a long-time customer of David and I (since 2006). We trusted him.

He said he shipped the spoons in 3 parcels but I received none of them. He said he never received the parcels back either.

I sent him a lot of emails, I even threatened him after a while, I even filled a Mail Fraud Complaint with U.S. Postal Inspection Service (never heard back from them).

Roy, if you read this, this story has really pissed me off, I tried everything with you, without success, it's about time to refund me!

Sorry for the disruption guys but I had to let it go.

That really sucks Marc!

I remember the guy from a long time ago.

He came out to a show in Houston. I think Jay and Damien were there.

I gave him an Absinthe sample.

Never heard from him after that.

Well this sucks completely. I'm so sorry you had this experience, Marc, and I hope it gets resolved some day.

 

I'm sorry I had to remove his personal information from your post because of liability issues on our end, but I certainly understand why you posted it.

I understand Gwydion.

 

I've been trying to get a reaction from him since late 2012, and in 2013. He doesn't care, not his fault. He has the money, I have nothing.

I'm very persevering, I will call his name until I get a reaction...

I'm very sorry to hear this, Marc, and I hope you receive your (way overdue) satisfaction, at some point.

 

It certainly proves that, sometimes, a screen name (Merde Verte) is quite apropos.

99.9% of folks are as good as gold but that 0.1% sucks enough for all of us.

I am sincerely sorry your trust was taken advantage of, Marc.
