    I just want to remember that an old member if this forum, Maurice Gotay, who lives in the US is still doing his 'bussiness' that consists in stealing gear from the people that send him to service.

    This old thread explains most of the story:

    It seems that he still is trying to rip anyone off at his eBay store:

    https://www.ebay.com/usr/theoldtechcorner?rt=nc

    This website also gives many information:

    Just FYI: this looks to be him;

    Real "nice" and Serious-looking fella... To paraphrase classic Bulgakov's novel Master and Margarita, I would not sell a gun to this dude ;-)

    Just last week bought Panasonic Walkman off eBay: they butchered resto job, pulled out a few parts and then sold as For parts/not working to a sucker (me!).
    Wish eBay had an option for "avoid this seller": based on the "restoration" attempt I would not want to buy Working item from them...

    I can just imagine the conversations in the Saint Quentin excersise yard....

    "So, what you in for? multiple murder, grand larceny or are you some kind of drug warlord?"

    "Er, no, I swindled someone on a belt repair for a WM-HX390"

    Are you willing to name the seller or post a link to the listing so that we can avoid the seller in question?

    here is my "catch": Panasonic RQ-S15. I should have noticed that pinchroller is missing, but did not. My fault! Seller says that
    "Our lab based in HongKong & Tokyo"
    so probably they have a few guys doing restorations. Whoever tried to fix mine has to learn how to use a soldering iron first, or start thinking about career change :)
