Hi all,
I wondered if anybody has had any luck tracking down Alan and Hornsaplenty at all? I sent him 2 horns to sell in April 2015 - I haven't heard anything from him at all since he acknowledged receipt of my horns. I just googled his company again and see his website has been taken down and I'm extremely worried now about my horns and if I will recoup the costs- or have I lost them. Any help/info from anyone on here would be greatly received.

Many thanks Sally.

Hello

I'm writing with an update to the case and the news are not good.
There are 33 people affected in 8 countries with over 40 horns missing. And we think that might be just the tip of the iceberg as some less worth instruments were found on site during the police investigation but with no known owners so far.
Unfortunately, the police decided that there is insufficient evidence to prove criminal intent and the case has been closed.
Therefore I'm putting a list of missing horns so maybe some of them can still be found. Please bare in mind that all those instruments legally still belongs to their original owners ie. persons who send them to Hornsaplenty.com for sale. The reason is they have never been paid for them by the owner of Hornsaplenty.com as had been agreed with him.
