Audio Asylum took the ad down after I showed them I had sold it to him. I asked if he will be banned, and there's been no reply. I also noticed his other ads are still up. I don't know why they would leave them up when he has been shown to be a liar.

I'm currently selling my Modwright LS-100 and a guy emailed to ask when I purchased it. Had to go back a couple years, but imagine my surprise when I find I bought it from cody_the_cat. Now it makes perfect sense as to why the tubes he sent with it were garbage when he said they were good. The guy is a liar and a crook.
abucktwoeighty........I sent you a email....
just an fyi but I sold Cody the Cat a Shelter 90x cartridge on 5-28-17 that needed to be fixed as one channel was not working. I have pictures of the serial number and of the cartridge itself....so contact me if you happen to see this cartridge up for sale. i just checked here, AA and USaudiomart and didnt see anything.
I purchased a Modwright Instruments 36.5 from him last September, fortunately it sounds great but he wanted extra cash for a NOS Mullard 5AR4 and a couple matched 6H30 tubes that he had for it with hardly any hours on them that he said transformed the sound over stock but i told him that i'll stick with what i already offered him for it but with the tubes included, i'm glad i did because the Mullard lit up like a 100 watt light bulb and blew the fuse on the preamp and the 6H30's were also garbage.
Ah! Two years later, this thread is coming to life again.Guess what? science_guy from Seattle also has an account here on Audiogon. He accepted my offer of $3000+fee+shipping for a McIntosh MC275 Mk V with no box or manuals (https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lis9ffd9-mcintosh-mc275-mkvi-tube).
A few hours later, he sent me a text with picture saying the cage was bent. I asked him to cover the $149 replacement cost, while I pay for the shipping. He refused and insisted on refunding. I disagreed, and immediately offered to cover half of the replacement cost + shipping. Shortly after, he sent me another message claiming one of the transformers had a dent, although they appeared fine on the pictures. I haven't heard from him since.
I checked my PayPal account today and saw a pending refund, although I never consented to cancelling the transaction.
Upon logging onto Audiogon, I could no longer find the transaction on my dashboard page. It's like nothing has ever happened. I never knew that you could just delete a transaction like that.
