On September 16, 2017 I was the winner of 7 different size violin lots with a total of 21 violins via the platform of liveauctioneer.com. On September 18, I called Thos Cornell auction house and I made payment of $3562 over the phone for the violins and I told them that I will be picking up my items on Wednesday, I was told that they are not open on Wednesday, so I said that I will be picking my items over weekends the, and the employee told me that it was ok to come over the week end. When I drove from Boston to Bellport.NY to pick my items I was told that supposedly somebody pick them up before me, and that because my name is not a usual name and the person that pick them up had an ascent and that the auction house worker couldn’t understand him so she concluded that it was me and gave him the violins. | We called the county police department and we filed a complaint. We agreed me and the auction house owner to refund me the money I paid plus my expenses for 1 night hotel stay (Since I drove from Bosotn.ma to pick the violins), gas plus the two days that I to took from work as lost wages. Thomas Cornell the owner of the auction house gave me two checks with a total value of 4125$, but when deposited into my account the check bounced. Because payment was stopped on the checks by the owner, knowing that I live in Boston I could not go back to the auction house right away. All I am asking for is refund for my money plus expences I lost because of this transaction wich is $4125.
