Harvey Mayo

E-mail chess game part II
Caution: very sour!

  Harvey Mayo in Starlog Magazine

The e-mails below are authentic and unabridged, and my comments between are in green

One day I was checked by a very rude e-mail from a guy called "Grey" -- I don't think that's his real name.

Hi, you dumb fuck.

I received an exceptional model from Harvey Mayo and many other pieces of which I commissioned him to do. The quality of his work is impecable. Compared to your bullshit sorry ass website you should keep that shit to yourself. It makes me sick to see low lIfes like yourself talkin shit when you dumb ass couldn't fuckin make a paper airplane. You truly are a disgrace and a piece of shit. If I would ever have the pleasure of meeting such illegal ass mother fuckers as yourselves, I would surely enjoy watchin you and Boris Karloff or whatever is name is run. I hope you decide to cancel your negative views of this individual , because your sorry ass no talent mother fuckers need to get a life and do something else with your TIME�.ha made a funny�

A pleased and return client of Harvey Mayo
If you have any questions feel free to call me (928)7271097

Boris Karloff instead of Borim Luneshar! Nice pun, which I alas saw much later, because Borim likes good old famous moviestars! And I can make a paper airplane for free if Mr. Grey wants one! But this day I was busy and instead of moving the king, I insulted him back and took his queen with my pawn -- very rude, but effective:

O.K. Mr. Dumb Fuck Grey! SHOW ME YOUR MODEL!!!

The time passed and I didn´t get any answer, and soon the mail was forgotten. The ONLY way for Mr. Grey to win, is to send me a recently taken photo of his Time Machine model -- then I will be check-mate. But he didn't send any picture -- because you can't sent a picture of something that doesn't exist. This means that Mr. Grey is bluffing.

But then, one and a halv year later, I got a new e-mail, frome some guy called "Ryan". It looks that Mr. Grey and Mr. Ryan are two different guys, because their telephone numbers are not the same, but if it is a cellphone-number, it is easy to alter. And they are using the same strong, explicit language, which is a clear sign of "sour" said the fox about the rowan-berries. They have no models to show, but Harvey Mayo told them everything good about himself and everything bad about me -- because I only told the truth.

I wanted to respond to your pathetic attempt to ridicule Mr. Harvey Mayo and his work.. It's amazing how you can sit there with all this spare time and talk your shit set up a web site to talk more shit..but you couldn't build shit to save your life.. If you had any artistic or model building ability you wouldn't be spending most of your fucking day trying to discredit the only individual who can asctually build this time machine model.. If all these people who feel the need to express their butthurt all over the internet they need to get a fuckin life already seriously.. In conclusion..if you feel like u have something u like to say personally say to me or you feel the urge to express yourself please feel free to call me @ 928 727 1496..so I can verbally have my way with you�If your up for it..oh yeh one more thing. It amazes me that for the one person who only has the talent and ability to build this miniature, that anyone would criticize or talk shit �because if it were me building these machines for people..and I was the only one capable of doing it�then the more shit people talk the longer they would wait..those who are patient will truly get a piece of art�

Go fuck yourself�because you have all the time in the world..

Mr. Ryan is playing like Bobby Fischer in Reykjavik 1972, insulting me to distract me from the game. But now I decided to play like Boris Spasskij, patiently but clever. An as you can see, this time I used no strong language as Mr. Ryan did, only facts.

I didn't say anything about the quality of the Time Machine models of Harvey Mayo (they are particularly very nice!), only that they for a lot of customers (Time Machine lovers) simply are NON EXISTING. Ok, Ryan! If you ever got your Time Machine model from Harvey Mayo - send me a photo of it and I promise you that I will eat three bananas with black pepper on them! Good luck! No need for me to call you, I will patiently wait for your kind answer; as you said: I have all the time in the world ...

This time I placed a bishop in front of my king. Mr. Ryan can't win this game, because he's got NO Time Machine model from Harvey Mayo to show me! There is NOTHING in the e-mail that says that Mr. Ryan has the model, which means that he is STILL WAITING. The ONLY way for Mr. Ryan to win this e-mail chess-game is to send me a recently taken photo of his model.

...I wonder if I ever must eat those bananas and I wonder what explicit language this/those guys will use after many, many years of futile waiting...


To be continued...


...and then, in August 15 2012, I got a message from Frank Thetonia:

The first number (928 727 1097) is "non-existant at this time" and the second # (928 727 1496) is still active but no one will answer or respond. So much for those two! LOL! And I think those two guys is none other than the son of Harvey Mayo!

And I also think a real customer who complains does not use this type of silly, stupid and ridiculous language in his/her mails and these two mails above from mr. Grey and mr. Ryan are also similar to each other.
Thank you for your kind help, mr. Thetonia!
And yes, I have won the game! No bananas with black pepper for me! And Frank Thetonia won the game too, already in January 25, 2007; here is a copy (PDF-file) of the judgment he won against Harvey Mayo for 4.700 dollars!

... Mr. Mayo is CHECK MATE!

Back to Time Machine models

... and now the date is November 22, 2015, and still no answer from Mr. Grey or Mr. Ryan...
...they are still waiting for their Time Machine models to arrive...
...waiting, waiting and waiting...
...and waiting...
