Default EVERYONE MUST READ THIS THREAD -- SCAMMER

This should be required reading for anyone buying and selling on here.

Textbook scam, and then he actually comes back to gloat. In hindsight, all the warning signs were there but a few of us fell for it anyway.

yeah its getting about too risky to deal with anyone on this site. This is happening repeatedly and nothing is being done about it. I personally think im done buying on here...least for awhile.

I wish someone would show up at that kids house... drag him out by his ear and literally beat the shit out of him! If I got robbed $400 you could bet I would spend another $200 on an airplane ticket and $50 on a bat!

Default Posting requirements?

Why isn't there a minimum post requirement to be allowed to sell in the sale section? Even if there's no rule though, I still won't buy from a total noob to the site and this is why.

Here is the real dumba$$ part about it; he admitted to ripping people off!! What senior dumba$$ failed to realize that what he posted on this forum (admission of guilt) could be used against him in a criminal case that anyone he ripped off could file. Also, his next post showing no remorse for ripping folks off not only solidifies any plaintiff(s) case, it also puts another nail in his coffin when it comes to sentencing (judges tend to frown upon arrogant criminals that boast about their wrong deeds). Good luck to those that will be going after him; he made your case(s) for you.

it was a joke to newbie2..
The first sign of him being a scammer is he told everyone that he asked like 100 people to use a camera and couldn't get one but he had these R/C cars with thousands into them but couldn't afford a camera .? Come on man give me a break and noone would let him use one for like 10 minutes.... fresh on the site and guys just bought into his ass.... next time check into things guys and do not deal with anyonw who cant produce pictures unless their a known member with good standing.....
NEED TO MAKE IT RULE THAT NO MEMBER CAN EVEN POST IN THE FOR SALE SECTION AT ALL UNLESS THEY HAVE AT LEAST 50 TO 100 POSTS AND THAT WILL HELP STOP THIS CRAP!!!!!!!

At first I was made I lost the $400(still hoping to get it back), But know I just hope that he gets what he deserves. And I should have seen all the signs, but I guess I am just to nice.
