Funny Ripp-Off Attempt

I had a reply for my gun in b/s/t threads that said "i have an ego for trade."

So im interested. I go and look at the thread...I say Hmm looks nice. i talk to him on aim, He wont do third party because he Quote"doesnt want to loose his ego"

Now i see he joined april of 06. I look and he has 9 total posts. all of which were offers to get guns in trade for his ego. Now i ask for feedback....thus follows the funny part.

He has 2 total feedback. Both were left on the same day 10 minutes apart. Both people joined april of 2006. I go to the 2 accounts profiles and see they have 1 total posts. yes folks....1 post. It was for his "feedback"

Now I look at interests and occupation. Both had the EXACT same interests ("soccer, paintball") both had the same occupation ("i wish i had one")

Now im falling out of my chair laughing at his attempt. Im talking to him on aim getting his hopes up and he say "you have to ship first". I asked why are you trying to ripp people off? he the blocked me.

Links:

Fake ego thread

fake feedback

Profile for fake feedback number 1

Fake member number 2's profile

This guys member profile

I just find it funny how people can be SO stupid.

Edit- He changed the interests and occupation on one of the 2 accounts

anyone report him yet? Someone just run an IP scan on him and check if it's legit. And yeah, looks pretty fake from here. I mean, what are the chances of 3 april 2006'ers magically doing business together and leaving feedback.

If this isn't taken care of by today, post in the Talk To Mods/Admins about it.

For now, post this in the Theft forum as well with his names to warn everyone about his lame attempt.

ROFLMAO!!!!

Don't people realize that most members of the Nation will look out for others?? If I'd been scammed by him, I'd have had no problem driving the 10 or so hours and whooping his ***. I had to drive to Tennessee last year to get my DM4 back, and the local LEOs were happy to help, once I told them the story. I pressed charges, too

I don't understand that either. I see threads where people offer things then suddenly there's like 5 members screaming that he's a scammer and even providing links... and then there's still like another page after of people offering their high ends still.

If people don't heed the warning, they might as well just get scammed. When they make a thread about it, just tell them, "I told you so" or "I warned you."
