W0IXE Dishonest Ham

Post by aa4vi » Sat May 08, 2004 3:48 pm

Hi, Does anyone know this gentleman? I have been trying to contact him for over a week by e-mail and telephone with no response. I paid him via a USPS money order with delivery confirmation for an antenna tuner he listed here on 4/20/2004. He said he would ship priority mail. The money order was delivered on 5/1/2004 at 9:58 am Denver time. He listed a lot of other items on the same date. Maybe he has a legitimate reason for not replying although he replied promptly until the money order was delivered. If anyone has had any dealings with Joseph W. Garrison of 5885 W. 30th Ave., Denver, Co. please let me know. Thanks, Larry Carpenter, AA4VI

Update: 05/12/04 I have received an e-mail from Joe saying he was out of town for two weeks due to a family emergency.

Update: 05/22/04 I have still have not received equipment as promised nor a phone call or e-mail from Mr. Garrison. Joe, time is runnning out don't force me to take legal action. Do the right thing, be a ham of integrity.

Update: 05/28/04 Legal action is pending against Mr. Garrison

Update: 06/09/04 Do not deal with this individual http://w0ixe.tripod.com/wixeradiopage/id6.html

Apology? A good thing, but...

Certainly you didn't get out of line. You didn't ask about the "scum sucking bottom dweller" or some such belicose verbage. You were courteous, polite, and exhibited concern. I don't think Mr Garrision would fault you for that. The original poster (AA4VI) even used terms like "gentleman" and "...a legitimate reason for not replying although he replied promptly until..." Those are hardly fighting words! I think you both were well behaved and yet obviously concerned.

I'm sure all are glad that there appears to have been no problem that can't be fixed easily. Hopefully the family emergency is remedied as well.

W0IXE Mr. Joe Garrison Can any one help?

Post by Terry » Tue May 18, 2004 7:22 pm

Ad Message: I received an email from Mr. Joe Garrison after receiving my money and dropping out of site for two weeks. He explained some family problems and stated the equipment I had paid for will be shipped last week. He also was to furnish a tracking number. He has not furnished tracking numbers, answer any emails, and does not answer his phone. What am I to think? There are three other hams in the same fix. Empty promises and poor contact. I understand family problems and have patience but this is getting old. One quick email would help a lot? Can someone in the Denver, CO area help? I can report this to the Denver police, the USPS, the FBI Internet fraud department. I do not wish to do any of these things. I am hoping Mr. Garrison will do the right thing. Terry Morgan N8ERM

Update to post of 5/12/04: I also have not heard anything from Joe Garrison. I received the same e-mail as Terry N8ERM saying he had been out of town for two weeks. His e-mail of 5/12 promised all equipment to be shipped by the end of the week with an e-mail confirming shipment. I have not received any additional e-mail from Joe, nor have I received the antenna tuner. Larry Carpenter, AA4VI

Joe, You have had the money that I paid for the watt meter. You cashed this money order on 04/30/04. You promised you would send the gear I have paid for. I wish you would do the honorable thing and send the gear as promised. You stated in an early email that you were not a crook. Richard Nixon said that also. You are judged by your deeds Joe. If it quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, it's a duck.

Need some info

Post by jackqm » Tue May 25, 2004 7:10 pm

I am filling a complaint with the postal inspector. I spoke with the DA from the country where he resides and here is what I need from everyone who has lost money to this guy. Give me your contact info and the amount you sent him and what item you were trying to purchase from him. Once I get the list I will forward it to both the DA office and the postal inspector.
Please if you can get it to me ASAP as I want to get this taken care of.

Subject: Re: Delivery Confirmation




Hi Larry,
I apologize for the long delay. I had to leave town in an emergency a couple of weeks ago. I had relatives in a serious car accident in Georgia. I was taking care of my grandmother who is in her 90's. No internet there or cell phone coverage in the little town where she lives. Anyway, I appreciate your concern for me and not just thinking I was trying to "rip off" good hams. Looking back at previous e-mails I see I must have taken off shortly after informing some of you guys that I had received payments for equipment. In any event I am sending out all of the purchased equipment by the end of the week. Most will go out today. I will be sending a message to let you know to look out for it.
Again Larry, Thanks for your understanding.
Many 73's
Joe WØIXE

This is the last contact I had with Mr. Garrison.

W0IXE Discontinued Web Page

Post by aa4vi » Fri Sep 03, 2004 2:43 pm

Well it looks like Mr. Garrison has discontinued his ham radio web page that I had posted the link for. He must certainly realize he has lost his respect as a member of the ham radio community. Oh what a tangled web we weave. Joe we are still waiting for our equipment, our money or another story. Just do the right thing.

Joe in case you have forgotten about all of us you have scammed, we haven't forgotten about you. The wheels of justice may turn slow but they keep turning. At least we will let others know about your scams and misdealings. Hopefully we will prevent anyone else from falling victim to you. Larry Carpenter , AA4VI

Well Terry, looks like you have gotten to the bottom of things. I guess that explains why I got no help from the USPS or the Feds. Maybe he has diplomatic immunity. I thought all government employees were 100% honest. :roll:

We haven't forgotten you Joe

Post by aa4vi » Fri Jun 17, 2005 6:42 pm

Joe its been a year since you scammed at least 5 different people including myself who bought equipment from you here on QTH.com. We won't forget and will keep posting untill everyone knows what type of indvidual you are. If anyone knows how to contact Mr. Garrison please let me know and if you see him advertising anything for sale take my advice and do not buy it. People like this give hams a bad reputation. Joe the only way to stop these posts is to live up to your obligations and take responsibility for your actions. Larry Carpenter AA4VI

Post by Terry » Fri Jun 17, 2005 7:09 pm

Joe, yep it has been one year since you cashed my money order and sent nothing. You then promised to send the meter and still nothing. Guess what you are getting for the first Birthday? Yes sir you are correct a big fat nothing, nothing, nothing. Shame on you but I guess the goverment has a few - - - - - -es working for them. Wattergate, Metergate, Radiogate, Microphonegate and another radiogate. Could it be that some day we might see another trial? A Simson, Jackson and a Garrison.... One can only hope to see another one go free. Shame, Shame, Shame.
