Fraud Alert - Protostar

This has been mentioned on CN before, but there are always defenders of Bryan Greer - that he's very busy (two jobs) and is a "stand up guy". Last year, I even received a nice diagonal and spider in reasonable time, and was pleased. But this year, I think a fraud alert is in order.

I ordered a flocked tube liner and end caps in March. AMEX card was billed on April 4 for $238.60. Bryan sent me a message that they were in stock and would ship "on Monday". When it didn't arrive, I contacted him in May. He apologized. My last email from him was June 6. It's now September 16. Since then, no emails were returned and phone calls are not answered. I tried to reverse the AMEX payment, but they only do so within 3 months. I was a bit too late.

So I tried a different approach. His partner (Dr. Sarah Conroy) has a dental clinic (614-885-7741), and Debbie is a very nice receptionist who kindly took my information and offered to call Bryan on my behalf. Using his private number, she got through quickly, but he claimed he had no knowledge of me or my order. I explained to Debbie that I was disappointed, and would have to pursue the small claims court option.

If anyone has had similar problems and wants to follow it up, his actual address (not the PO Box) is Edward Bryan Greer, 4653 McCurdy Dr., New Albany, Ohio 43054.

James I also was ripped off. I ordered and paid via paypal a curved spider, secondary holder and mirror in August 2013.Yes August 2013. Cost about $280. I received the diagonal mirror about two months later after a email to inquire but never received the curved spider or holder. No response to any to my emails or postal mail to his PO address.. As you know nobody answers the phone. Stay away from this guy. Your rolling the dice. In my opinion with all the complaints about this guy on the other sites forums I cant understand way some astronomy publications still allow him to advertise.
