My friend Dalibor has had a knife stolen from him by a thief named Mitchell Howell in Texas. Makers and collectors please beware. Details of Dalibor’s experience below Repost @daliborbergamknives ・・・ hello guys I have to share a very bad experience I had with a customer. This person got a knife from me unnamed from the photo above and once he got it he sold it the next day..to a stand up guy who has nothing to do with this situation Now I know its his knife and he can do whatever he wants with it but after that I was blocked from his IG account and than he issued refund through paypal so now he got the knife sold it and Im out $1200. This happened Dec 22. 2017. He claimed his paypal got blocked and that he will take care of the money in a few weeks.. week by week went by and still no money. He offered to pay through cash app or google wallet but once I provided the payment info for both cash app and gwallet he stopped communication. Knifemakers and knife collectors beware his name is Mitchell Howell from TX USA he turned off his IG hes mitchell.howell on bladeforums and is a gold member. Really dont know what to do more at this point except warn all others not to deal with this person. Thank you for your attention and hope you all have a great day! IMPORTANT Thank you all for offering assistance I really dont want anyone paying him a visit or doing anything unpleasant to him on my behalf.. Im fact I wish he has a great life an honest one where hes not scamming people. #daliborbergamknives #daliborbergamknives
