Angry Stereo Times reviewer holding my $80k power cables for ransom

He is a reviewer for Stereo Times Magazine. I sent him many expensive power cables so he could review them. They also cost me $100 to ship them from Sweden to USA, they are very heavy, approx 20 lbs. I sent everything to him for free, he has not paid anything.

After two months he still refuses to send them back if I don't pay hundreds of dollars to him, claiming his old tubes died from my cable. Everyone I asked is saying it's not possible and he's trying to scam me.
I need someone who can pick-up these cables at Overland Park, KS 66085.

For $80,000, I would expect the generating station to be included.

Shouldn't this be tacked onto the original thread on the same topic? It would reduce the clutter on the forum.

I must confess that in a dispute between an expensive cable maker and an expensive cable reviewer I have great difficulty in deciding on which side my sympathies should lay.

I would have, but that thread is locked.

Because of him, I need to go on welfare and sell all my furniture to feed my family. While he owns a luxury ranch.

This one is as well. If you try to reopen or start the same thread again, it will be removed and you will be banned.
