I won an auction at eBay for a Viva Voce CD, and sent my payment promptly. Dave never sent me my CD, even after he said he'd send one of the extra 4 copies of it he had, because he claimed the post office lost it (which is possible, but still I never even got the alleged 2nd CD). Other stories he told me, that supposedly caused the delays, were a road trip, his absent-minded secretary and a death in the family. I was patient and waited 3 months. By the time I decided I was ripped off, I went to leave negative feedback, I found that I was not allowed to, because the auction was no longer in eBay's database. Since then, I did some detective work and found that he has resubscribed to eBay twice; his latest User ID and email address are davewalls & and also dwalls & Avoid this person at all costs (no pun intended). I hope he gets what's coming to him.

#4 REBUTTAL Individual responds

Just to clarify...

AUTHOR: Dave Walls - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, September 08, 2007

To Jonathan:

You are correct. I mispoke when I stated that the address was a Penn State
address. Never fear, I don't believe that comment will hurt recruiting.

That said, the logic still applies. I attended Delaware Tech Community College
from 1995 to 1997, then transferred to Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA for the remainder of college, from 1997-1999. At no time did I attend Penn State, the University of Pennsylvania, or any other college north of the Delaware state line. Therefore, it didn't really matter to me where the email address came from. It wasn't mine.

In regards to the original auction, 7 years later, I'd still pay the $4 she paid for the auction. I lost $7 in shipping costs for 2 CD's that are probably drink coasters in your house, but who cares..I'm not the one who filed a baseless and false report on a then-unmoderated website. (At least registration is now required..).

My eBay is still the same 7 years later. You know where to find me.

just correcting the rebuttal-ers

AUTHOR: Jonathan - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, December 27, 2006

Concerning the e-mail addresses listed, the rebuttal-ers claimed that one of the addresses listed was a Penn State address. For the record, I was a Penn State Student, and it is NOT a Penn State e-mail account. is an e-mail address for the University of Pennsylvania, which is an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SCHOOL. I just wanted to make that distinction because Mr. Walls and his friend who stuck up for him indicated that this e-mail address was never his because he never went to Penn State. Whether it is his address or not, the deductive logic they tried to use in this case does not work because it is based on a false foundation.

As a former Penn State Student, I just did not want Penn State's name sullied in any way because some people did not bother to find out which university actually belongs to.

In defense...

AUTHOR: Jennifer - ()

POSTED: Monday, August 12, 2002

My name is Jennifer Peacock, and I
am a longtime friend of Dave Walls,
who is wrongfully accused in this post.

Dave regularly sells excess radio equipment,
and music out of his apartment, and
has always treated everyone with the
same respect that he has wanted to be
treated with. He has the highest morals,
and is not the kind of person who would
do the things this person has accused him

In closing, Dave does not deserve to be
accused of something he did not do. He
attended Liberty University in Virginia,
not Penn State, and everything he wrote
is true. Whoever this is accusing him is
flat out wrong, and if I were Dave, I'd
sue her for libel. Dave is too nice of a
person to do that. I'm just glad that she
is not accusing me.

I'm the one ripped off..

AUTHOR: Dave - ()

POSTED: Monday, August 12, 2002


I realize this response is late, but
I never knew it existed until recently,
when a friend told me she saw my name
on here, so I had to look it up.

To be quite frank, this girl has no
idea what she is talking about. She won
the Viva Voce CD, and paid me properly.
I then, still living in Delaware at that
time, gave the CD to my secretary at my job
to mail off, having pre-paid for the postage
myself. (I was working at a radio station,
and selling off excess CD's on eBay.)

Shortly after, I received an email from
her, saying she did not receive the CD.
Not wanting to rip her off, I took the hit
and mailed off another CD to her. At this
time, I was in the process of moving from
DE to Virginia, as I had been offered a new
job. Upon moving to VA, however, I had a
death in the immediate family, forcing me
to travel to DE to attend to family
business, putting my job and life on hold.

Finally, after returning to Virginia 2 weeks
later, I found my email box with 2 emails
from her, again claiming that she didn't get
the CD, and she was upset. I tried emailing
her back to confirm address/phone, or if she
wanted, to return her money. I wasn't going to
send a third CD, because she's either got
both, or something is wrong. She never emailed
me back, and so I decided she forgot about

Let's get a few facts straight:

1) I have only one eBay ID. davewalls and
dwalls are not me. Had she actually tried to
contact those people (I encourage her
to do so), she will find that both are not me)

2) I have only one email address (At the time
of the auction, it was,
which was cancelled last year). I have never
had more than one email address at a time,
nor have I ever attended Penn State. That's
just a flat out lie.

3) Her statement, "I was patient and waited for
three months" is also a flat out lie. This auction ended about the first of August.
I moved to Virginia on August 27,2000, and we
were still attempting to get the transaction
completed. The fact that she would file this
report 2 weeks after, **while** we were still
talking, and while she was still friendly
towards me, proves what a liar she is.

In closing, this "girl", more than likely,
got 2 CD's for $7. She had my phone number,
and never called me. My email address, and
stopped emailing me. My eBay record speaks
for itself. If she had wanted a refund (even
though I got a return receipt from the second
CD, saying it arrived), I would have given
it, because I am a very honest person. I
guess this is what I get for taking someone at
their word.

My eBay record is flawless (minus one negative,
which the seller recanted with positive feedback
a few days later.) I encourage her to
provide some hard evidence if she is
going to accuse me of such an act. My
eBay ID is davewalls (always has been).
Check it out for yourself, and contact
me if you want more details. Thanks.
