Got to the bottom of this finally. Here's the latest email from ebay member omencuesforlife


Dear workworkallnight,

im not on AZ, and have not posted anything.
i have talked to mr harris and all is ok !
rest easy that you are not a thief !! i apologize ! all is coo

thanks
bye bye !!


- omencuesforlife



I know I am not a thief and everyone else knows that. I will post this on AZ as well.

I appreciate your apology and all is " cool " statement, but when you lied about that you
had posted all over az billiards and also stated you had already talked with Mr. Harris when you certainly had not.

That ticks me and I do have the right to be ticked. Your actions were totally uncalled for and very unprofessional along with showing zero common sense.

It's bad when there is a thief out and about, but, just as bad when people are getting accused as being a thief, especially when it's coming from a cad like you.

Thanks and as you put it.

bye bye !!

I am curious why you trusted this person (Brian Hurst) with the cue that you made? Did you know him to be a good and honest person? I do not think people change from good and honest dealers, into the type of person that this Brian Hurst seems to be. So, why would you trust this type of person with your cue? I am just curious. If Brian Hurst was at one time a a good and respected dealer, then why would he turn into a no good thief? It makes no sense to me why anyone would send their cues to a person like this. What did this guy do to earn the pool communities trust? I imagine it takes a lot of trust to ship off a beautiful cue like that to a person (without receiving any money from that person). I imagine that you must have known him to be a good , honest, and respected dealer before you shipped your cue to him, right? Maybe you trusted him because he has sold cues for you in the past, and you never had any issues with him? I am very sorry to hear about this. Pretty soon, people may not want to trust anyone anymore. This is sad.

Is this the person that you trusted with the SW style cue that you made?

https://www.facebook.com/brian.hurst.3150

Just curious. I see that he is active on facebook. Why not call him out in front of all his friends on Facebook (if you can possibly do that). Not sure if you actually need to be friends with the person to post a message on his page. I do not know much about facebook, but there must be a way that you can contact the guy. If he accepted your cue on consignment, then legally, the cue is still your property, right? If he sells your property, and does not give you your share of the money (however much was agreed on), then that is a crime, I imagine. How can a so called pool cue dealer get away with doing something like this? This is one of the most horrible things that I have ever read about (a pool cue dealer accepting a cue makers cue, without any deposit money on that cue (?), and then selling it without giving the cue maker any of the money). I assume that he sold the cue, and did not send you your share of the money, right? This is just horrible. Sorry to hear about this. Just be more careful about who you trust in the future.

It seems to me that you were worried about your reputation being hurt over 1 persons accusation (about you being some guy that you are not, or about you having a cue that was stolen). You should understand that a lot of people are just very stupid. You should not have gotten so bent out of shape over it. Your ebay and your AZ feedback speaks for itself, and you have nothing but green reps on here, right? So, why did you feel the need to defend yourself. You should have just laughed it off, and ignored the person that made the the silly accusation. It sounds like he was just playing games with you (either that, or he was just very stupid).

justinb386,

In reading your last three posts, you question the cue maker about why he sent something to someone and then post the cue maker has the option of calling this brian hurst out on face book to his friends and speak about dealers trust issues and then you say I should laugh it off and why should I get bent over someone challenging my honor and name that I have worked very hard to earn. The three posts are all over the place.

OK, I consent to the fact that I am not a "grey area" person. I see only right and wrong. I have given my best efforts to say it like it is without being overboard. In dealing with pool cues, sometimes things go south and to act and perform very quickly is the right thing. I am not perfect by any means, but, I have never ignored a person if something went south in their minds.

I do a lot of paper work to make sure my customers and myself have a clear picture of a meeting of the minds. This protects us both.

I appreciate the quick view of my profiles that you say speak for themselves, but, I carry the attitude that I am only as good as my last sale.

I treasure the fact that you can laugh it off when your being accused of being a thief. I am just not that way. Maybe it's because I have cut my teeth in selling cues when your word and a hand shake meant something more than just a plastic card to charge on now a days.

I certainly am not here to be the az member of the year. I am here to represent ( and I am old fashion as I still feel it a total honor to represent a cue maker) cue companies in the highest regard, but, will do it honestly.
I have sent many cues and shafts back to manufactures as if a product that comes in that I am not happy with, I'm not selling it.
If I come off as harsh and unforgiving when I am challenged with bs about who I am or what I do, I am sorry. For the people who actually know me, they know that I am a very easy going person, until a line was crossed.
I try to deliver a product that is better than expected. I do not post hundreds of comments just to ad lib as I usually only like to be involved in positive postings.
The Harris Cue I have for sale was in question as being stolen and I received emails calling me a thief.
NOT HAPPENING !! Period !! If you can laugh this off, well........ok.. then fine. I can't. I am going to squash this as soon as possible and stuck to it all day until the truth was revealed.

worktheknight I think you were justifiable in your reaction. Someone attacking your credibility is not cool especially if you were innocent as you are. I actually think you handled it a lot better than I would have.

It doesn't seem like this guy is hiding if someone needs to get in touch with him.
He seems to play world class pool when he's not at work.

Brian Hurst update - 07-22-2016, 03:35 PM

Hunter, who is a very nice young man and a jamb up player, just called and told me Brian Hurst took the cue I made for him as part of our sponsorship deal.
As Keith McCready said in the color it's like a nightmare, it just keep getting worse and worse.
Thanks
Robert Harris

I'm just seeing this post. This guy Brian Hurst was in my pool hall for one of my tournaments several months ago. He said he was a big cue collector and stuff. He showed me several cues that were in the $2000-$4000 range, but he talked like he didn't know about cues. Told me one of his cues was a museum shick worth $10,000, this was not a $10,000 cue. He also had a cognoscenti and a Vollmer cue with him. I showed him my collection, which lets just say has cues over $20k in it, and he acted like he didn't even know what he was looking at. And that fact that he had a Vollmer cue was odd, because only a real cue person would really know about those cues, and you don't see many in the states, and I could tell this guy wasn't really a cue guy. Now it all makes sense, and I'm wondering if those cues were stolen or not. Only reason I thought at the time they were not stolen is because he had his cues over priced. He wanted $3000 for that Vollmer cue and it was really a $2200 cue. and if it was stolen I figured hed sell it for what ever he could get at cheap price. one of my customers bought the cognoscenti player from brian, and after brain called him trying to sell some more cues, but he had to rent a car to come deliver the cues and all this weird stuff..... my customer smelt something fishy and told brain not to contact him anymore. anyways, just wanted to tell you guys my experience with the guy.

Hey Chuck, I've been a customer of yours and you go above and beyond what is expected from a dealer. If this community was full of people like you we'd be living in a magical community here. There's no need to justify anything to Justin.
