    I am about to send him $10,000 in cash in a sealed box for 500 Miken Freak bats. I think it is a great deal. He says he is well respected in the sofball community but some people in the US did not like the slow shipping so they just bad mouth and make stuff up about him. He said he is from London, Ontario, CA and will drive over border to ship to speed it up. Any input would be appreciated.

    I've never had dealings with him, but go to worldwideslowpitch.net and ask them (some of those guys are here as well). I haven't heard anyone of them say anything good about him.

    I've dealt with him before and I got everything I paid for......3 months later. He's screwed so many people over that the only way I would deal with him if I were you is if you did the deal face to face. No way would I even consider giving him the money without inspecting every single bat and making sure they weren't no returns. The guy is a swindler and a crook for sure.

    No kidding. Hasn't anyone even done the math, that's $20/bat. I don't think Miken can make them that cheap.

    I saw him in July/August at a tournament. He was passing himself off as a Miken rep. telling teams to give him their ultra 2's for the exchange program. I can't believe some guys actually did it! Man is he short and whiney.

    Dereks bail money

    If you sent it to him then he is out of jail, cause he used it for bail. He is a crook. I helped put him there. Ripped me off last year.

    Hopefully someone can call Tony Christiansen at the Fraud Division of the Waterloo Regional Police Service, he was handling the case against Derek. I was one of the guys Derek ripped off on Ebay. I would be surprised if he were dumb enough to rip anyone off in Ontario since they could easily drive to his house and give him an Easton enema.

    Anyway, someone call up Christiansen and see if Derek is getting properly buggered in a cell somewhere.

    He is not in jail and has never been except when they arrested him, but I recieved a call from Tony last week and told me he will be sentenced in October and pleaded guilty to most charges. It only took about 18 months and its almost over. He scammed me also and everyone will not touch him because he might fall down and die and you will be charged with manslauter.
    ITS NOT WORTH IT!
