Phillip Gonzales - Scamming from Massachusetts [Arrested - Charged with 3 felonies]

Quote:
PbNation is proud to announce that a scammer has been caught by the authorities and charged for his crimes. Phillip Gonzales, of Mashpee, MA, was arrested by the Harwich, MA police on Thursday, 14 March 2013 and charged with three felony counts of larceny.

Bringing this thief to justice was made possible by the dedication and persistence of the awesome PbNation community, it's staff members, along with the Mashpee police department and Harwich police department. Many members came forward offering support and information which helped catch this thief red handed with stolen property. He now faces three felony counts of larceny.

A huge thanks goes out to all of those who were involved in catching Phillip Gonzales. Remember... if you scam on PbNation the paintball community WILL bring you to justice!


If you have been a victim of Phillip Gonzales you should contact Det. Sgt. Dave Jacek of the Harwich, MA police department at 508-430-7541, ext 104.

If you have been scammed by this person please contact lisa.miranda@sanantonio.gov immediately to start the report process.

Below is some of the information we have been able to gather on the scammer formerly operating out of San Antonio, Texas and currently scamming from Mashpee, Massachusetts. His real name is believed to be Phillip Gonzales and his co-scammer in Texas was Joe Roman. The address used in Texas was 238 Chickering Ave San Antonio, TX 78210. The address most recently used to scam from is 309 S Sandwich Rd Mashpee, MA 02649. Anyone dealing with members from San Antonio, Texas or Mashpee, Massachusetts are strongly advised to be extremely careful. Get the members full name, address, telephone number, email etc. and speak with them and verify it on the internet prior to dealing with them. It is also advised to NEVER ship first to anyone with little to no feedback. Go through a third party if necessary.

This may be one or more people perpetrating these scams.

San Antonio, TX Scammer Info - Back Center Rules, Being Legendary & More

Phillip Gonzales has recently been playing in the Northeast Paintball Series with a team called Hurricanes and another called Toxic..

APPA link: http://paintball-players.org/cgi-bin...XSPdGI9HpBIadx

Here is Phillip Gonzales:
http://www.facebook.com/phillip.gonzales.716

PH#: 508-477-4814
Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Maffei...7299456?ref=ts





Joe Roman (co-scammer) was on a team called Tx Meltdown or San Antonio Meltdown. Retard+3, liquidJ, TxMeltdown24 all have links to this team, and all of those people have concrete links to Back Center Rules, Biscuits and Butter, and Being Legendary.

I found the myspace page for Tx Meltdown, seen here. Looking through the photo galleries produced these two images:

APPA link: http://www.paintball-players.org/cgi...VwvBOHZGURNkyG

Look at the name on the back of the jersey. J Roman and R Roman. J Roman is a name the scammer used many times.


This is J Roman. You can match the paintball pants from the first pic to the pants in this pic.

How did you find out his "real" name ?

This guy has used so many fake names that I'm interested to find out how you actually got his real name. PM it to me if you don't want it public please. Thanks.


To anyone that has been scammed...hampster13 is doing something that should have been done by someone a long time ago. If you have been scammed by Paul/Ramirez, Andy Garza/ being legendary/ Back Center Rules, or sent a package to 602 Saxon St. San Antonio, TX, give hampster13 as much information and assistance as you can. Scammers do get caught, the proof is in the forums here. Past PBNation scammers have been caught, fined, forced to repay money and return stolen property, received criminal records, and some of them have had to spend time in jail !

If you feel like your efforts are going to be wasted, they won't, trust us. This guy will get what's coming to him. Please assist hampster13 in making it happen. The more reports and information the police get about this guy, the harder he is going down.

hampster13 you get a big

Everyone who has been scammed by him needs to contact the San Antonio, Texas police department to file a complaint. The police are more likely to take action if there are a lot of people filing reports.

The authorities can contact PbNation admins by using the contact link at the bottom of the forum or emailing cs@pbnation.com or john@pbnation.com for information. I have gathered a lot of information on this person, but I'm not certain if I can share the information publicly yet.

Myself and railz have repeatedly posted exactly what people need to do. As much as I wish I could, I cannot make the stolen items appear. If the San Antonio police department is telling you to send a certified letter and wait 10 days then I would do that. Make a copy of the letter being sent, keep receipts and any tracking info associated with sending the letter as well. If you do not get a response within 10 days then contact the San Antonion PD again.

LOL @ the screenshots. Someone is starting to sweat a bit, methinks. Too bad he can't order the cops off his property or use deadly force against them. I can't wait until this idiot scammer is tossed in the slammer.

Please keep us updated.

he is trying to convince you otherwise. trying to turn you against us. this guy knows that what he is doing is wrong. so he is going to the OP of this thread and threatening him. and of course we know that those letters wont work. But those letters are our key to filing reports against this guy. and he states that he will shoot you, he wont even think about opening fire if you bring police authorities with you. BOOM! what you got now?

It's obvious that he's crapping his pants. He thought he was so smart, just like Gary Parrot and Mike Costlow. Maybe he would have gotten away with it if he scammed one person and they didn't do much about it. However, there are multiple pissed off people, and rightfully so, and this guy is going down hard.

He should give Gary or Mike a call and ask if they walked around all day lubed up since they knew they were going to get bent over in jail.

Can't wait till you guys take this clown down. Hopefully we can see some pictures of the tears streaming down his ugly face as he cries and realizes that he's about to be used like a Fleshlight for the foreseeable future.
