We had A Auction Friday Night, 3-18-11, A Buyer Registered Under the Name of Luke Adams, Festus, Mo. We took A copy Of Drivers License, And Phone Number. He Spent $472.00, Loaded The Items, Mostly Duck Calls, Misc. Tools, Pocket Knives, Etc. He Did Not pay The Bill, We have Called The Number, The number is Not Good, Talking With Another Local Auctioneer, The Same Man Was at His Auction, At the End of 2010, Registered Under the Same Name, Walked Out with About $2,000 Merchandise there(Also Buying Knives, Tools, Etc), Auctioneers in the Missouri Or Illinois Areas Should Be on The Lookout For This Guy.

We are located in Northeast Missouri (La Plata, MO) and had the same indentification presented to us @ an auction later part of 2010...individual purchased duck calls/knives/tools and loaded up and left without paying. After contacting local law enforcement they tracked down Luke Adams who claims he has nothing to do with this scam....he no longer lives in Festus, MO .... will have to go back to my files and locate name of town he now resides. He was actually prosecuted by some auction companies and the last case was dropped due to the fact that positive ID couldn't be made. Luke Adams claims that his DL was stolen or lost ... telephone # we had was a good number just to a person that said he wasn't Luke Adams and hadn't been to our auction. We have spoken to other Illinois auctioneers which were located over 4 hours from us that have also been scammed. Can't believe this individual is still brave enough to be doing this ..... we have since installed security cameras so that positive ID can be made in future if this situation happens.

Appreciate the "heads up" guys! We'll be watching for this yo-yo. If he shows up in my neck of the woods We tie him to a tree till you or the law gets here. I tell the bidders that he bids against them with no intention to pay. Do you have a physical description? white/black? tall/short? hair length/color? slim/heavy? manner of dress? (Sorry it's the old cop in me coming out)

Ed,
I talked with A Detective From His Area, Said He was Very Familiar With This Guy, And Needs our Sherriffs Dept. To put Out a Warrant And They Will Assist Locating Him. This Guy Did Not Send off Any Red flags When Bidding, When We Sold Choice On Duck Calls, He only Took 2 The First Round (had He taken Them All First Round,Knowing he wasn't Going to Pay His Bill, That Would Had been A Red Flag),
He Knew What He was Doing, Not to Draw Attention.

This Guy is White, Early 30's, Black Slicked Back Hair, Dark Moustache,Aprox 6' Tall.

He is Consistant On What He Buys, Duck Calls, Decoys, Pocket Knives & Tools,And It Appears He travels to Many Areas To Buy, So No telling How Far He May Go. Everytime He uses the Same I.D.,

If He should Appear at any Auction, If You could get a Car Description or Plate Number that may also Help. Please Make Sure Your Cashier Knows this Name, I sure don't Want to See Anyone Else Get Burned.

Thanks John,
We are close enough to you that if he shows up we will issue him a bid number, call police and then call you. Hope this guy gets nailed.

We're having an auction this coming Wednesday with the kind of stuff he buys. I've all ready printed off this info to give the the girls in the trailer and we'll be wathcing for him. I haven't confirmed yet, I will know tomorrow, but I think he might of got somebody else in our area last Sunday on a $300 gun.
