Yeah, It's funny how he keeps on coming back under different names. Beware guys DO NOT BUY OR TRADE ANYHTING WITH THIS PERSON....SEARCH THROUGH THE FEEDBACK AND YOU WILL SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE HE HAS BURNED....I GOT THIS MESSAGE FROM SOMEONE THAT SENT HIM SOME STUFF AND HAS NOT RECEIVED HIS PART OF TEH DEAL YET.

Hey just to let you know

RedNeck15(on RCTech) may be KenChoco - He has the same email address and the same Physical Mailing address. I sent him my hudy setup stands and he was suppose to send me a 1/10 scale version. I feel I've been suckered - This happened before I read your post.

Redneck15 gave me this address to:
KEITH MILES
5218 AMY ST
HOUSTON,TEXAS 77028

I did a google search and found that this addesss was used by KenChoco on RunRyder:

http://runryder.com/helicopter/t199204p1/

His reply in the pm he sent me was that was his "stupid brother in law"

Just thought I would share.

It's just funny how he wants motors and all that, And he dosent show his face anywhere. But I guess if I ripped off as many people as he has I wouldnt show my face at a track either. Hopefully the mods will do something before it's too late again. Is there not a way to ban his IP address or something?

IDK? You think there might be, but if he is using dial up then they would have to figure out a way to ban like a class of IP's, which could potentially block more than just him.

I reported the post in the For Sale section to a mod. I just think its ridiculous that we have to continually monitor things and pick up on when he comes in and out.

What's more interesting is notice when he created the ID - before he got banned last time, meaning that he knows it will happen and creates ID's before it happens and makes sure they do not coincide with his termination times other wise its pretty obvious. Signs of being a professional scammer? I'd say so!

Default I'm fearfull that I will never see my setup stands again :-(

Ya I stumbled upon this thread and got me worried so I did a google on the mailing address - seems like he's doing this on other boards as well.

http://runryder.com/helicopter/t199204p1/

His phone number is there at the bottom of the page.

I also gave him my number to have him call and Guess what no call... No tracking number nothing... Maybe things will work out but for now the future does not look all that bright...

Who do we report this to?

Jeff

He never Posted just PM'd me - I guess I can send the PM to the MOD

I still have hope that things will work out. I guess I like to think that everyone in this hobby is pretty honest...

Hey guys, I recieved the just e-mail with the link here, and will look into things first thing in the morning. I wish I could now, but it takes a while to connect dots - it's 2:00 here, and I have to be up at 7. I'll have it taken care of asap. If anyone has information they would like to send me, PM me!

ip bans very seldom work anymore because ip addy's are not one of a kind. (i have learned this from another forum)in about a year or so everyone will have one ip and no one else will have one alike.i have the same ip as like 5 diff people on a forum that i always get crawler info from so.......that isnt very accurate.we had a huge discusion about this not to long ago at my lhs about scammers and suck.hope you get this worked out.
