Hey all. I know I don't come around like I used to, and I haven't forgotten about this place. I still have hopes of one day making a Fett suit. I hope you've all been doing well.
It has slowly become apparent that I have been robbed. I used to live in Tennessee and had my Rubies Fett helmet and gauntlets at the time. A friend... or should I say ex-friend, said he'd fix them up for me. He's kept them at his house over time. We used to work together, so I had no reason to even think he'd steal from me. Then finally, the time came and I was moving to Georgia in early 07. He said he would fix my stuff up for me then send them to me. Casually over the years, I've asked how my stuff was coming along, and I'd get responses like, "Same old." or "I'll get to work on it on my next day off." etc.He was always online invisible because he'd usually get loads of messages from his contacts Now, April 2009. We were just talking like usual (we talked on messanger) and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. We just talked like normal. However, that is the last time I talked to him on messanger. Over the months, I've asked his wife where he is and why he doesn't get on, etc. She just says he's busy, etc. I slow began to suspect him of turning his back on me, yet I didn't want to rush to conclusions just yet. finally, back in October or so, I finally called his house. I know he still has his number, because I searched information. He answered the phone. I knew it was him because I knew from his voice when he answered. and he immediately knew it was me. So, he disguises his voice in low pitch and tells me, "Uh, you got the wrong number," then hangs up on me. The thing is, I knew where he worked. so, I had another family member call him and surprise him, and basically told him I was wanting my things back and left a message at his house number as well. Later that night, his wife messages me asking my address. I asked her if she still had the phone number, and she says yes, They got the messages at work and at home. So in other words, she admitted that it was indeed himAnyway, I've given them time and then called her at work asking about the status of my Fett stuff. She says They've been "busy" and haven't had time. uh.. yeah. The last phone call made was a couple weeks ago, and naturally.. no answer. I think it's apparent he's stealing from me. He KNOWS I've been trying to contact him because I've also had other people pass messages along to him. He has $240 dollars worth of my Fett pieces.
I know some of you probably think I brought this upon myself, and should have gotten my stuff back when I had the chance when I last saw him. Honestly, I agree. I just thought he was my friend and wouldn't do this to me.
can anything else be done? Or has he gotten away with it? Can anyone offer advice?
Just let me know. Thanks all!
