Stolen Equipment
« on: December 28, 2010, 04:53:57 pm »

Hey Everyone-

There is a big problem that you all need to be aware of. There is a man going around to the sound companies steeling equipment. He is very familiar with each and every component and knows how to “Talk the Talk” of the industry. He is introducing himself as “Tour Technical Director” of Sony Music in his emails and is extremely knowledgeable and knows everything about the products he is asking for, he was also able to provide insurance documents, signed contracts, etc which is standard policy for new clients. So far there are two companies involved in this, Dowlen Sound and Rock N Road Audio but we fear there may be more. Roy believes that when the guy came to his office to pick the equipment up that he saw two Midas Pro6 consoles. The guy was doing business with both companies as:

Wow.  Go big or go home?  That's a very, very nice rig when combined.  Sorry to hear about this, Eric.

When that guy gets caught, he is going to be looking at some serious jail time given the value of the items that he is stealing. I wonder how he is going to try and unload gear of that caliber and price.

Did you not make a photo copy of his drivers license?

Even if they did, I'm sure it's useless. If every high school student and their cousin can get a fake driver's license made so they can buy booze, I'm sure someone who plans to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars in specialized equipment can too.

This kind of reminds me of a conversation that I had with one of my clients.  They had provided a hotel room for another vendor.  The vendor trashed the hotel room and dissapeared.  They had an insurance certificate naming then as an additional insured.  The problem was that they had not followed up on the cert to make sure it was valid or fake before hiring the vendor.  I haven't heard the outcome yet.

Note to self....Check all certs!

Definitely a good warning to call insurance companies to double-check certificates, etc.

I don't know about all the rest of you guys, but that list of gear would never leave our shop without a full confirmation of who, what and where, I have never let something of that kind of value out of my shop, especially when being picked up in someone esles truck, which this must have done. Granted forged documents are too easy to come by, but really, not to question and confirm is just what the smoooothe talker relied on, and he has so far won, did this stuff go on a container within 12 hrs and leave the country, cross the border into canada, not a border state, but there is a lot of acres of wilderness north of colorado. My advise is get a email list, even if it has to be bought, and flood the internet to all production companies, this stuff will not hide easy
