After reading a number of reviews on this forum I contacted Don Stachowiak so that he could build me a teleportation device for the Whit Haydn routine. He was very responsive and friendly during the discussion process. We discussed a price and a time frame (1 month). After exchanging emails about the details on how I wanted the device to be built, I Paypaled him the discussed amount in full. After close to four months, giving him the benefit of a doubt, and him giving me excuse after excuse, plus ignoring my emails, I realized that he was just taking my money.

I asked for Don to refund me my money or send me the device that I paid for, but I did not receive anything. It has now been 6 months and he still has not refunded me my money nor has he sent me my device.

If anyone is looking to get a teleportation device built DO NOT buy one from Don Stachowiak! I strongly recommend going to Nick Wenger. I ordered one from him, he built it within two days, and it surpassed my expectations.

He owes me one also...very disappointed...I contacted him via his add in the Genii forum saying he was only going to build a couple more, and solicited for chances to get the last ones...I did and even received notes saying it was on the way...now he won't even email me back.

I'm in the same boat. Don owes me a TD as well, and he has stopped communicating. I've ordered one from Nick, which looks much more promising. I'll report how that goes.

I already own a TD, which I purchased used. It is a FABULOUS routine - I can't say enough about it. But my TD sometimes fails to fire, so I want a new one. I'm also sending payment to Whit for performing rights.

I wonder how many people he stole from. He doesn't realize it's a small world, sooner or later what he's been doing will catch up to him.

Best to purchase from someone not to far from you. In the event the deal goes sour, a visit in person might be all they need to produce. If someone is putting the screws to you, they're taking a big risk on cheating the wrong individual. It's a mobile society, so it doesn't take much to show up at one's door to handle it. I hope everyone gets their product.

Did you let Mr. Kaufman know this? Maybe people over there know the guy or what his story is.
