Early October 07 I ordered at Pianosuperstore / ASAPH / Terry Wilson a brand new Ellenburg Piano JE-152 5'2 Baby Grand piano for $10,000 including home made design
Terry Wilson refuse the transaction going through ebay and payment made by credit card.
He requests the full amount paid in advance via wire transfer.
As the company announced on their site to be bonded with Liberty Mutual up to $25,000.00. I do the wire transfer.
The piano ordered is requested with some art designed so Pianosuperstore / ASAPH / Terry Wilson charge for this extra and announce they will process it through their designer Mike Prisco (Saratoga Pianos). The piano is suppose to be shipped to him in the next days.
After more than one month no piano has been sent for design work to Mike Prisco (Saratoga Pianos). But almost 2 months after the order a piano is sent but does not correspond on the one ordered. This one is a old broken piano.
I try to deal with at Pianosuperstore / ASAPH / Terry Wilson to get the brand new piano or my money back. I get $1,064.78 and confirmation that the right brand new piano is on the way. (But as usually it was a lie)
At this time Mike Prisco (Saratoga Pianos, Magdalena's house of pianos) offers me a piano branded Knabe with the design job for $7,500. I confirm the order and send him $2,500 deposit plus the $2,000 he got for the design and the $1,064.78 forwarded by Pianosuperstore.
Mike Prisco (Saratoga Pianos) says he will deliver the piano designed in the next three weeks.
During weeks I asked for pictures to Mike Prisco (Saratoga Pianos, Magdalena's house of pianos), but after more than 4 months nothing arrived and no pianos or money back from him and the one from Pianosuperstore / ASAPH / Terry Wilson.
Mike Prisco (Saratoga Pianos, Magdalena's house of pianos) said the certified check was on the mail....and more lies. Then I decided to take action with :
PROTECTION BUREAU OF STATE ATTORNEY OF NORTH CAROLINA
PROTECTION BUREAU OF STATE ATTORNEYOF NEW YORK
FBI as wire transfers involved interstates and claim is over $10,000
POST & TELECOMMUNICATION COMMISSION as internet ads and communication And so on.
At that time Pianosuperstore / ASAPH / Terry Wilson lawyer sent a letter that he was going under a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy law.
Mike Prisco (Saratoga Pianos, Magdalena's house of pianos) sent several intimidation letters hoping that I will withdraw my actions and claims.
I am not a judge to call that people "con artists" but their behavior may be suitable to criminal charges and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy law protection may not help them especially on my case that escalated after November 2007.
