I'm brand-spanking new to this site, I've leered around for quite a while but finally registered just so I could post a reply to this thread.
If you have any paperwork that shows you gave that guy your hides, sue him in small claims court. It's a pain but that's probably your only recourse. It won't be handled by the police, they will simply say it is civil, not criminal since he didn't forcibly take the items from you. There is no crime because you handed your hides over to him - he is not upholding his end of a contract and that's civil. Sue his ass and good luck! The hard part is getting him to pay even after a judgment, if he has no other income, it will be a difficult task. Also, getting Jesse may not be a bad idea, he's entertaining if nothing else!
Edited to add - the BBB doesn't matter to anyone who isn't a member… I'm guessing a guy that treats his customers like he is wouldn't be a member! Good luck!
