    Unfortunately one of the possible solutions is to increase the deposit value to around the price of the used market to make it...not worth it. Specially for people that never were part of a loan before.

    It's unfortunate and unfair but at least you get the money back and next time you'll be on the "loaner whitelist".

    So if this guy essentially decided to keep something that doesn't belong to him, can law enforcement become involved? Surely his email/IP address is easily accessible?

    I doubt it is already possible to receive physical goods by email.

    I'm pretty sure he means to have police (or whomever) trace the info to a physical address...

    I meant that the physical address should be already known.

    Speaking as someone who's been fucked up the ass by the post office without consent many times and has lost sleep and hair over it, I have sympathy if they were running into postal issues and were just too scared to admit it. I've been there, it sucks dragon dildo (maybe don't Google that).

    But this beggars belief, two amps months apart. I can't think of any situation at the moment where that scenario might be the case since they were active just a week back and didn't chime in with so much as an "oh shit sorry X happened". I might be growing cynical rather than stoic.

    Whatever the case I hope SBAF gets both amps back in good condition. Jeebus I hope this isn't Camden all over again.

    No communication from the guy (from all accounts) doesn't bode well.

    Nobody in the same area willing to go knock on the guy's door? Can't hurt to try if he's unresponsive

    I take that back. I think he stole it. Before I even posted this thread, I noted last activity was on July 7. That's a month gap, so I was willing to give the benefit of the doubt. I just noticed the last log in as Aug 9, the date I started this post.

    @luximal, please contact us before we assume the worst. Otherwise, we will contact law enforcement where you live and publish your name to enlist the public to get our property back and protect others.

    Personally I think we need stricter rules if you want to join in any loaner program. I never felt happy that giving up at least $20 can at least "get you in the door." Either put a time requirement before even getting the chance to join the loaner or Friends only. Now this guy was a member since 2015, and he didn't post too much over the years. At least to me it sounded like someone only had "certain interest."

    Possible enticement of $20 to have a chance of a loaner was never something that I like. Don't get me, when I donated I like the option to get into a loaner. Now after hanging out here for a while, I'm not too sure.....

    I've met him IRL before on multiple occasions so I want to say the possibility of theft is low. He's loaned much more expensive gear from other sources in the past. I don't have his address so if a mod wants to PM it to me prior to contacting the authorities and releasing his info I will check in on him at least.

    I vote for the childish response of using his email to sign up for a lot weird porn to flood his inbox and maybe give it to a Nigerian prince or two.

    Sorry guys, I was super busy with military training the past year but I have a break this weekend and is about to end this week,

    They are packed up with dust collecting on them, since I haven't touched them for months. I can ship them to whatever address today or tomorrow.
    I've went on sbaf on aug 9 due to a discord pm asking about the situation, but since I was on a military base with shitty wifi and doing training, I have neither the time nor capability to ship the product or explain myself

    As for zdt jr I remember sending a pm where to ship the product to one of the mods, but no one ever got back to me. There were home renovations at that time, so the zdt jr was packed in a closet and I soon forgot about it.

    The lyr 3 is a bit less excusable, as I had a bit of time to ship it. But I was more busy with getting other shit done first, so it was another thing packed up and sitting in a corner.

    Like k4 said, these loaners are things I would not really steal, I own amps, dacs and headphone a order of magnitude in price and am financially comfortable enough to not steal or sell it.

    The most inexcusable thing I've done was forgetting to ship the amps when I had did have time during the weekend breaks from training. It is something I have apologize for and I'll do that by shipping both loaners today at whatever address, paying full expenses. I'll also donate a full $500 CAD to Sbaf to make up for all the bullshit I caused.

    Many thought that it was weird and the first thing was worry.
    Glad that you are ok and I, and I think I speak for most, wish you all the luck with your military training.

    Get back when things calm down a little.

    It's hard to plan for loaners. No idea when it starts and even after it starts you can't really figure out when it arrives. I can understand not being able to do much about long deployments.

    Still, should be able to plan around it. Probably just send it to a local Friend to pick up and drop off (k4star?).

    This is correct.

    By the time I got around to the Lyr 3, I had to go through three people until I got to @luximal, because the others were not interested by this point. I am not blaming them for anything, I certainly understand. Maybe some consideration for a cap a round 1 and then a round 2 if there is still interest. Just throwing out ideas.

    Either way, life happens.
