    The Wheels of Justice........Phil Winfield.

    For those with good memories, our favorite scammer and general ne'er-do-well is back in court Sep 26th for the next hearing.

    Two felony counts of obtaining goods by false pretences and five counts of felony conversion.

    Let's hope it's jail time.

    I use to message him about guitars and NEVER got a reply. Not once. Never even answered the phone. Thought that was strange.

    The first time we really met [about 10-12 years ago], he put Greeny in my hands.



    The next time he let me play it on stage with my buddy, Bernard!

    I recently happened upon his new website advertising his high end and vintage guitar stock, but only after clicking through several links did it arrive at 'Maverick Music', which was pretty startling after historical events! As seems to be the case, even after epic public floggings and legal cases, these guys just quietly set up shop once more

    I've long known that some men simply don't know when to stop taking the piss, and then there are those that simply don't know how to. In a perverse way I feel slightly sorry for them, much akin to feeling sorrow for those piteous souls that suffer from similar and more readily identifiable organic mental health conditions.

    There are some well known suspects that couldn't give me a 'Burst. I simply dismiss their presence.

    Winfield is charged with felony conversion and some other very serious major crimes. The cases have been continued numerous times and next come up before the Iredell District Court on May 7th.

    I remember that day Tom (and those that followed) with The Greeny saga. What a guitar! I'm back on the fourm, and man, does it feel good.

    Could it be that the Peter Green LP doesn't have clean title?..could it be that the guitar was used as security for a credit line?, could it be that the guitar was spriited way to Jolly Olde (and sold to you know who) while the debtor filed bankruptcy to clear the line of credit, could it be that the bank (the secured creditor) and its attorneys are still looking for the "security?"........ the Paul Kossof LP is under the same scrutiny.......all good questions.... could it be that I am a witness for the bank?........Hmmm

    Hello John
    As previousy explained to you, I did not receive your funds, Paypal did, they froze the account due to suspected fraudulent activity, I do not have your money paypal has it, ask them for a refund, I have advised you of this before and you have not acted.
    1. global amp is not my website, my address is operational
    2. I do not trade on ebay
    3. my paypal account is operational
    4. telephone is working
    5. I am at the same address, UK & USA i.e. "not on the run"

    You never paid me for the guitar, you paid paypal and they have your funds, not me.

    Re: The Wheels of Justice........Phil Winfield.

    The usual lying B******t from a serial liar and scammer. If anybody is still in any doubt, do not believe a word he says.

    You took the money I sent you from your Paypal account, then Paypal suspended your account because I reported you for fraud! They told me they would have refunded me if there was any money to refund with, there wasn't!

    Paypal is not in business to steal people's money, but you certainly are!!!

    Global Amp certainly was your website, you said 'it's not suspended but just a technical hitch' at the time when I queried it. So yet more of your lies.

    You did trade on eBay because that's how I fell for your scam. I reported your avoiding selling fees and made sure eBay closed your account.

    Just tried your phone No., it now just says not available. It was disconnected, so maybe you paid your phone bill?

    I would love to know your two actual addresses Phil, so I can track you down.

    The local police have your case in-hand so we await the Wheels of Justice......

    AND DO NOT TELL ME I NEVER PAID FOR THE GUITAR!!

    Unfortunately, his court case was delayed, let's hope he's back in court soon.

    Meanwhile, I received this post via another forum today regarding Phil Winfield's business(?) deals.

    "Hey are you local to North Carolina? Because I live here he ripped me off in the last couple months also. If I can help in anyway I will. I know where his storage unit is. I did contact his ex-wife she said he’s a bum also hasn’t paid child support in months. I’m going to go to the police and file a complaint I’ll find out if you can do also"

    Just to keep interested parties up-to-date, another recent victim of Phil Winfield posted this on the Gear Page forum.

    "Hey are you local to North Carolina? Because I live here he ripped me off in the last couple months also. If I can help in any way I will. I know where his storage unit is.
