Michael Hamilton Bagpipe Cd Amazon Seller / Michael Hamilton

In September of 2007, I paid Michael Hamilton $4, 000 for 2000 products and the right to sell his products on Amazon and Ebay. He never delivered the products to me. He first told me that he would drop ship the products to my customers. However, he failed to drop ship the products in a timely manner, which resulted in complaints and refunds.

I then asked him to stop drop shipping and instead just send me a portion of the 2, 000 products I paid for. He agreed, but never sent me anything. He told me for months that he was sending me the products I requested from a company called CreateSpace. However, almost a year later and after I filed a lawsuit against him, I subpoenaed CreateSpace for any and all orders by Michael Hamilton to me, and they responded that such an order was never placed.

In October of 2007, I had also paid Michael Hamilton $1, 000 for 50 bagpipes, all of which I never received. Again, he assured me month after month that the pipes were enroute, and yet nothing was ever sent to me, not even a refund. I even pleaded with his wife, via email, to convince her husband to pay me back, but she was just as bad as him. She told me that she knows for a fact that they don't sell bagpipes, and yet I discovered that at the same moment she told me this, Michael Hamilton was selling bagpipes on Craigslist! She also told me that she knows for a fact that they don't have any bagpipes on hand, nor in any storage, and yet during this same time, I was able to ascertain by posing as a prospective buyer that Michael Hamilton had 188 pipes on hand.

After several months of asking for a refund, Michael Hamilton failed to pay me anything. In August of 2008, I finally sued him in the Superior Court of Sonoma County and won, due to the overwhelming evidence against him. I am presently still awaiting my refund.

Anyone who has purchased or is thinking about purchasing Michael Hamilton's on-line Celtic music business should be very cautious, and is welcome to contact me.

    Yes, we also confirm that Michael Hamilton is a Scammer. Liar and we recommend everyone in the USA and as well as other foreign countries to be very careful when doing business with him. Do not ship him any goods or pay in advance. in 2009 and 2010 he took our Scottish Bagpipes, Practice Chanters, Glengarry Hats, Balmorals Hats, Bodhrans and never paid. Ultimately we have to take the lost with some goods return. He is fully bostered, scammer, liars and opportunity hunter. Watch when you do business with him. Even though his all those Bagpipes learning CD's is a stolen stuff from others. As far as we know, he cries on the phone to get favors or sympathies. BE ALERT

    Mr "windsong" purchased and received items inspite of the above statement. Anyone can feel free to contact me to sign an NDA to see the signature on file. 30 pages of shipping information.

    I simply wish to no longer be in business at all as there is too much petty childish behavior

    As for CP-BAGPIPES - Mr Tariq you should be ashamed of yourself.
    You shipped product - delivered extra 30% yes (I paid for 70%) - but your drums had heads unglued and torn off, the pipes ALL were missing product, the balmorals were all childsized and not adult.
    You got back all the "extra" 30% + 65% of the 70% that was paid for - so you owe $7400 to me plus interest.

    Anyone wondering WHY pipes purchased were not delivered feel free to see the photos of the damaged goods.

    Mr LaFave was simply an innocent victim of me getting damaged and worthless goods - and of course he got his money back in full within 2 weeks even before returning goods

    Michael Hamilton, very good in making stories, telling lies and making himself very innocent person. I met him personally in his PA house, where he met me as a potential buyer, who can sell 500 bagpipes per month.

    He fraud two of his partners (Singh) and (sh...). Copy of his one email, speak itself about him


    I sent a $1000 money order yesterday and another $1000 money order today
    tomorrow or thursday I'll send the last $1000 money order
    can you ship the custom drum from that?

    I hope on friday - but plan to by the 18th to buy
    the next shipment of 100 pipes
    the next 50 18" bodhrans


    Never sent the payment, nor Money Orders. Also First Class Mail do not take 10-12 days from CA to NJ - Lier

    He had many plans to take the goods free with next day delivery. This Michael Hamilton owes us $15, 000 for the merchandise and 15, 000.00 for the goods we prepared for him, which he never paid and we never shipped. He has such a nerve to tell people, that he was very innocent, did not have the food for himself and for his child. Shame - shame for you - Send me back more of my goods at least so we can recover our lose somewhat at least.

    Also a note to everybody else in CA and USA, including Pakistan makers and suppliers of Bagpipes, do not ship him anything without taking 100% payment in advance. You will get burn like us.

    You got my samples and sent me your comments. We like to know you lied at that time or lied after getting more then 300 bagpipes. Our goods were worthless at what point? Nobody in good sense keep buying the same goods if those were not of high quality. You can call yourself a stupid, senseless person or a mad man, beginning of the purchase or at the end of the business relations, but you cannot blame us. We still stand behind our goods, their quality, workmanship and high standard. Stop speaking lies, otherwise you will be a more loser then what you are now.
