Easy solution; Facebook and Paypal will shut him down if they know auctions are being conducted.

Is he auctioning cues or doing a "lottery"? Those are all over FB. If so, his actions remind me of the musical The Producers in reverse. They sold 1000% shares on a show they thought would fail and had people looking for their money when it was a hit. He could sell 26 or 69 spots and have no one complain but the winner, to whom he would give an excuse and maybe a refund for the undelivered cue. The money collected from the losers would be "free".

Some cues are sold through auctions and others through raffles in which he now uses his own software program to generate the winning number. Yes you read that correctly.

I think he was banned here quite some time ago

It always surprises me when I here how many thousands of dollars people will send to internet cuemakers who are little more than assemblers.
Typically they are underfunded so when things start going wrong they're too broke to take care of the issue.
I missed all the drama with this Klown character but if nothing else his cues are ugly.
One guy on Facebook sent him $2400

Ted,

Your statement that certain cuemakers who go bad are underfunded is true but in the case of Chris Walker he is knowingly taking deposits, and payments in full, on cues that he will not deliver. At his current build rate, he is 11 years out and at least one customer was told publicly he will not receive a cue nor a refund.

When his refund list was public, the average refund was $700. Multiply that times the outstanding orders and those promised a refund and the total is $70,000.

With that much down payment, you would think he could have bought real metal lathes and hired some help.

You would think so.. but then again, this is a guy who builds a cue from square stock to a finished cue in a week, and is proud of that fact!

He is up there with Lee Pepper and Tony Zinzola
It's surprising so many people would order one of those things when there are so many
great cuemakers to chose from
