Anybody having knowledge of the whereabouts and true contact details of this person is asked to respond. My wife entrusted a horn to him for sale 12 months ago. He does no longer respond to emails, his previous limited company has been dissolved, and the telephone number listed on his website does not tie to the postcode of the address he gives: the persons on the end of the phone say they do not know him.
Yours, hopefully.....

Chris:
Many thanks for your reply. I don't do FaceBook, but will try the avenues you suggest. And yes, so far as I am concerned, legal action is on the cards.

Hi Geoffrey

I am also having the same problem. I now notice that the website has vanished too.
On checking the Companies House register, it seems hornsaplenty was dissolved and struck off the register in 2014.

Have you had any luck getting in contact/getting paid/getting your horn back?

He sold me a fake Atkinson over ten years ago, before I knew anything about purchasing a horn

I'm sorry to hear of your problems, Marianne.

It's probably now too late to expect any redress. The UK police apparently conducted a thorough investigation and decided there was insufficient evidence to prosecute AW; had they done otherwise it would have opened the doors to a lot of aggrieved clients' ability to get compensation.

This does not preclude private legal action, but you would need solid evidence and I guess that might be difficult. Hopefully you have moved on and are playing a horn that you like.

I am. Thank you very much. I entered an undergrad program with a hideous piece of junk, an unaware buyer for certain, as a prior 40 year flute player. I did, however, with the help of my instructor there, acquire an unlacquered Schmid double, which I adore. I lost thousands from this regrettable experience. I should not have been so naive.
