I have 2 CDs on CD Baby. Recently I received a letter from somebody calling himself “Sean Macko,” claiming to be a distributor located in England, who said he wanted to buy 100 copies of each. I gave him a price and he said he’d arrange payment and get back to me.
Next thing I know, he says he is sending me a money order for $3,000 more than the agreed upon price, and he will send somebody to my home to pick up the CDs and the extra 3 thousand dollars. (He did not provide his address.) I told him I didn’t want to do business that way, and that I wanted him to send a U.S. Post office money order for the exact price and I would send him the CDs.
Two days ago I received what looks like a money order, from some company I never heard of, in an envelope with no return address.
I wrote the guy and told him this was unacceptable, and that I wanted to return the money order (which of course is a fake) and that if he wants the CDs he will have to send the US Postal money order for the correct amount, and he wrote back an abusive and threatening letter, implying that he was coming to L.A. and I had better give him the 3 thousand and the CDs or else.
I filed a complaint with the FBI. And will soon be doing the same with the L.A.P.D. and applying for a permit to carry a gun. The permit will probably be denied, but I want it on record that I’m being threatened.
