Thumbs down Beware Of This Guy

Most of us in this hobby are honest hard-working people that would never think of stealing something from someone else. Unfortunately that is what this post is about. I had thought I made a friend with this guy and had gone to several shows with him as well. I took a 1919 Novo(serial # 47000) and a 3/4HP Maytag to his house to paint and to get running. A couple of months went by and I called him and said I needed to get my engines because I wanted to sell them. He informed me that he had moved to Katy, TX and I asked for his new address. The address was not valid so I have no idea where he really lives. He most likely lives in Katy, TX or Houston, TX but most assuredly in Harris County, TX. I have called and left several messages which he has not returned. I am now trying to find him through law enforcement. This guy's name is Sam Augustine and I met him through this forum. Should anyone be approached by this guy PLEASE get as much information from him as you can and call me. If anyone should see my Novo at a show-most likely in Texas-please call me at 832 275-9041. Thank you, Greg Ray

Default Re: Beware Of This Guy

Another tip for finding him. If he has cut all ties this will not work, but it is worth the try. Mail him something, but take it to the post ofice to send it. If he has set up to have his mail forwarded you can ask for "forwarding service". Not sure on the exact term, but something like it. If he has left a forwarding address you will get a reply by mail as to this new address from the post office. Good luck!
