NEED TO SALE FAST
This is all pretty weird. The only J Huttepain in LA is a 40 something adult male so unless his kid is using his bay account, it is hard to understand his involvement. The guy's bay record is perfect on about 90 deals. He would not appear to be someone who is likely to be involved in a racket scam. For the record, bay seller JHuttepain claims complete ignorance of any stolen rackets. He says that rackets are his and he doesn't understand what is going on. But since the rackets for sale on the bay seem to be identical to the ones Topspin Man claims were stolen and the items that Topspin Man claims were to be traded appear in LA Craigslist for sale by J Huttepain and appear to be the exact same ones that were offered for sale by Nguyen (Ng) and Lam in SF and SJ (and by Nguyen on TW), it seems evident he is somehow involved, perhaps unwittingly. A very strange coincidence otherwise. Something doesn't add up here.
Calling Sherlock Holmes, over.
Hopefully the police will figure it all out.
