Default Frank prisco dealings (chris lewis) piedmont sport dealings

Hello fellow collectors. Has anyone has dealt with Mr. Frank Prisco? I ask that if you have to please leave your comment below. I may be able to shine a little light based on what happened between Him and I. Frank owns Piedmont Sport and he has recently been shut down from selling on the live auctioneers site for a 15k transaction in which he failed to complete with me. Frank conducted auctions on the site. I am not 100% sure but I do think that to sell on that site, you must be a PA auctioneer. He now sells on amazon under Piedmont Sport

I have been in contact with many other people who have dealt with him and have been victims of bad dealings. Please POST BELOW ON this thread if you have something to share. I may be able to provide some assisitance. I have had to involve legal to attempt recoup my losses. Thankfully, I am in the same state and only a few hours away so it shouldn't be too painful.

If you are out of state or In PA and have conducted business with Piedmont and believe you have been victimized, there may be some help here.... Let me share my story...

I bought several Babe Ruth cards for 15k. They were very quick to call and get payment. They denied accepting a credit card even though there site says they accept them. Piedmont Sport said they sent the merchandise..THEY NEVER DID... And eventually gave me an nontraceable bogus tracking number..... I was shocked that any human being would ship an item of that value with no validated tracking. This was a huge red Flag for us. The tracking they provided was fake. It was never even scanned at the USPS. AFTER MANY NONSENSICAL REASONS WHY THEY WERE NOT SHIPPED, WE WERE HEADING NOWHERE FAST. He proclaimed he had already paid his consignor and now he had to pay me out of his own pocket. I told him that this was not my fault and to issue me my refund. Over a month went by before the CEO of Live Auctioneers got involved. We gave Frank 5 weeks to remit 3k a week until paid in full. He paid me back with my own money for the first four payments for a total 12k He has now dissappeared with no communication. My attorney sent a demand letter giving him a few days to settle. He ignored the letter. NOW HE HAS JUST JUST GONE OFF THE GRID. I have attempted to reach him through various channels all with no success. He has written us off and intends to keep the remainder of what I paid him for a product I never received. This is all one can assume after being told in writing by him that he would not "stiff us" This is where stand at the moment. I am meeting with my legal team to ascertain what can be done to get the money Frank Prisco owes me.

I had a run in with Piedmont auctions about 4-5 months ago won a 48 Bowman Paige and a 33 Goudey Ruth. They did not have a problem calling me after the auction to take my money but never received the cards every time I called it was one excuse after another after the fourth time I ended up disputing the transaction with my credit card. I would recommend not doing any business with these guys.

I contacted Liveauctioneers after winning a US Caramel Ruth card several months back. I smelled a rat before sending payment and eventually saw that the scan came from Heritage Auctions. I told Liveauctioneers about it but not sure they did anything about it.

There was another posting about this guy in the sports water cooler section recently. Perhaps they could be combined? And if I remember correctly, there was a thread several years where Franks attorney posted. Ordering a cease and desist otherwise legal action would be taken.

I seem to recall that name/company combo being posted about here in the past with some shady dealings. On the autograph sub-forum perhaps? Something About an impossible Ruth-signed dollar bill IIRC. This would have been at least a couple of years ago. Sounds like he's been at this quite a while.

long story short, had won a $5k cobb card, received a $500 cobb card. a fellow board member, brian, had suspected, searched and found some similar issues here on the net and the internet and warned me so i opened the package under video surveillance at the post office. when chris was "surprised" he said send it back and i informed him it was being held as evidence.

i was fortunate enough to have dealt with criminals over the past 25 years and gave him ultimatums to file a case. he sent me a check which bounced and after several delays i told him i was filing a criminal case and informing the PA insurance commission (Frank runs an insurance company) he offered me another cobb as temporary payment. after several more delays and realizing i'd never see my $ and would cost too much of my time and $ to file a case in PA since i live in CA, i decided to take a bunch of stuff from his amazon site as repayment and resell it, he agreed and sent me the stuff at my terms. I have recouped about $3500 so far but it isnt worth the headaches. its funny that he still thought i was gonna send back the original cobb. when i told him no, i never heard back from him again.

i have copies of the bounced check, tracking, pictures of the original packaging, emails, a log of my communications of broken promises etc. if you need more information please contact me.

I live in NJ and emailed him that I was willing to meet him in Philadelphia (where he is supposedly located) to pick up the card and make payment in person. Never heard from him.

Again, he used a scan straight from Heritage on the card that I "won". The light and dark areas of the slab from the scanner passing over it were basically a fingerprint match. At that point I knew it was a scam.
