I've met him, as have several other people here.
I don't think he's trying to rip anyone off; I think he is just procrastinating. He probably doesn't realize that the long delay is causing problems and suspicion, since he doesn't visit here very often any more.

I think he'll come through for you.
If nothing develops in the next few days, perhaps Loren or someone can track him down and see what's up.

Yeah, he got back in touch with us. I think he was just really busy and/or was putting it off. That in combination with not keeping in touch made us get a bit worried, but I think it'll be alright now. Him being a long time member here was the only reason I felt okay mailing a check rather than PayPal.

Yes that would be nice. LOL, It has been close to five weeks now since I sent him the money. You would think he could find time to ship the stuff. Thanks loren for checking.

I just talked to him online. Don't know why he's not posting in this thread. He assured me he's shipping stuff tomorrow. I'm in no way taking responsability for his actions! hahah. Just wanted to reassure you he's not running off with anyone's money.

LOL , I was thinking the same thing. five weeks later no empeg, It has been two weeks with no reply from him at all. I wonder if I sent him some more money for shipping he might send it.

Wow, apparently they have shipped, but neither of us have gotten tracking numbers yet. He said we can each have one of your players if he doesn't follow through.

You guys are being too nice. Didn't one member of the forum get arrested and convicted after not delivering players in a 2 week time frame?? And here we are talking a 6 week time frame??

"old hand" or not I would be a little more irritated after waiting 6 weeks without communication. If he was atleast communicating then it would be different and slightly easier to trust.

At this point, I'll pay someone to pick them up and ship my player to me. IT's weird how he'll actually email me and not thrasher. Then he'll tell me "you can see I never leave the computer much" then tell thrasher, in one of the very few emails "sorry, I'm practically never online".

I should have known something was up when he said he can't take PayPal.

Never again.

Mmm.. if he's as competent as his company, these transactions could take a while.. I just tried to browse the company website from Justin's profile, and it's got tons of broken links and the like. A definite case of truth in advertising.

Cheers

Justin, I've been holding off on posting on many interesting threads for the past few days because I really wanted to use my 3000th post to do something interesting.

Instead I am wasting it on you. Pull your head out of your ass and deal with this situation. This community is a great place, one where someone with as many posts as yourself can usually be implicitly trusted. You are destroying that with your actions (or lack thereof).

I can't believe that you are doing this maliciously, only that you are being completely inept. Maybe you are going through a hard time personally, but that does not excuse this delay.

Argh, don't ya love when you vouch for someone and they scew the pooch?! ... and then promises your empegs to others...haha. No one seemed to reply to my notice that his PHONE NUMBER is in his autoresponder on AIM. Is it not there anymore? Or have you guys tried calling him already? Email is way easier to ignore than phone calls. ;-)

I have a suggestion.
Try to open up a web site about Justin Larsen, explain what he did
and link his company's broken web site there. I think it might work. At least it worked really well with Sal Wise, Jr. - the e-bay scammer, if Justin Spence hadn't published his scams, who knows, nobody would ever get reimbursed...

Well considering I did not own a cumputer till I purchased my empeg. I have a hard enough time updating my empeg letalone build a web site. Good Idea though.

thrasher -

don't you live fairly close? Even if it was a 2-3 hour drive I would do it and get my $$ or empeg back.

Good luck but it looks like he just took your money and might not ever ship/refund unless the law is involved.
