My part of the case is relatively small compaired to the other gentlemen. It's more for the principle of the thing for me... a few hundred dollars can be earned in no time, but If I can help the other guys out, its for the best.

Just a little update on this guy!

Oh boy does the story get better and better...

This case has been transfered to the McNair County Sheriffs office where they are already investigating 7 other counts of internet fraud against this guy! He's been brought up on charges 2 times before this one for the same exact deal, receiving money for goods he never sends. The case is being reviewed by the DA, not only for their own prosecution but Federal prosecution as well.

Funny how the sherrif's office was EXTREMELY hacked off when they learned of 4 other cases (mine including 3 others found during my search for John). He said they get numerous calls every month about this character.

Looks like I'll get to visit the great state of Tennessee when this thing goes to trial.

another little update on this guy...

So far there are 13 cases or counts against this guy for doing the same thing, scamming via Ebay or Forums.

Contact me if you have had bad dealings with him and we'll get you the information and contacts you need to become part of the case. If nothing else, you'll get your money back but we're shooting for bigger things... Federal prosecution.

Talking Hope he's a Penn State fan

What an idiot....He's messed with the wrong bunch of guys. Did he sell RC kits on eBay and never deliver?? One of my buddies tried to get two Tamiya Mini (M03L) and never recieved both of them. The guy that did this changed his username tons of times and kept trying to sell the same kits over and over again. I am sure there are tons of people that do this stuff and get away with it all the time, so it's nice to see someone having to answer for their actions. He'll be the guy selling Cigarettes to the other inmates. Then he'll scam the wrong one and get his ass beat within an inch of his life if he's lucky!!
