So I wire transfer the money ($6300.00 for the Pre and some cables) to this Dailyaudio with 150 positive feedbacks spanning over a 12 month period.
I did all my Due diligence, so it seemed. This is the information he gave me:
My bank details is:Kasikornbank Public Co.,LTD
Thanon Liep Chai Hat Chomtien Sub-Branch
SWIFT Address KASITHBK
Account Holder name - Valen Kavatsa
Account number - 5032151274
IBAN is the same as account number
My phone is +66848723778
My address is:137 Rama 9 rd.,Bangkok,Thailand,zip 20150
Bank address (if needed) 144/1 Moo 12 Nongprue Banglamung Chonburi 20150 Thailand.
Last I heard from him was Feb. Saturday 12th. 2011.
Money was transferred on Feb. 10.
My emails are not answered. The phone number he gave us does not answer.
I wonder how many others here fell victim to the same guy!.
Right now I am sore and hurt, any smart remarks will just discourage others to come forward. Be compassionate, please.
Are there any Audiogoners in Bangkok who can help?
I have done the transfer cancellation with the Bank, but there is a very slim chance of recovering the money.
I have also sent the email to Audiogon service.
I am at a loss here!
