So, he's unblocked me, and started harassing me again, thank god i'll be able to block him before he can reblock me, I won't have to deal with him anymore...

Hey, StephaKim, why don't you tell him to stop harassing people? Eh? Threatening to stalk me and my family doesn't bode well for your combined image... If you truly are innocent, which I doubt, you might want to consider getting VERY VERY FAR AWAY from Daniel MandelbaumcharliefranksharkfromjawzAlanWelson--Whatever his name is, for all we know, Mandelbaum itself might be an alias...

Either way, he needs to stop harassing me, I will be showing his messages to me to the police. I have the right to defend myself against stalkers. I will be bringing the full gravity of federal law against him for his threats against me.

It's very nice that I have physical and digital copies of evidence of my claims. The best thing he can do right now, is to stop harassing people completely and stop scamming people...

What was the exact "threat" he made against you and your "family"?

He gave you your address in a private message for your own company that you fail to list as where its located. Something many people here have said he must provide and you clearly did not.

He made it clear its not a threat, he's not the "boogie man" and has no intention to call or communicate with you any further.
He also just provided his well know number (for over 7 years its not changed) for you to give to the police so they may call him about your claim.

Its nice you saved the documents as they prove its not a threat, not stalking or anything in between.

You are simply stirring up drama in hopes you will make him angry at YOUR threats to him .
Stop playing games and grow up.

The massive logic fail in that one statement actually caused my brain to reboot, I now have a perfect impression of the middle part of my keyboard on my forehead I deskfaced so hard.

I'm convinced due to the logic fail here, this is Daniel, not Stephanie/Kim...

Plus, Anyone know how to block him after he's blocked you? I need some information.

Called it.

His style of typing is very unique, and I've had no issue visualizing his type of writing. It's almost like he's writing in neon pink words in a sea of black and white. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying this, but if you gave me ten papers, I could pick his out with ease. Even over people trying to pretend to be him. Any other English teachers/English master students would be able to do the same.


Edit-damn phone tried to autocorrect 'pink' to 'link'. Fixed it.

That latest post makes it obvious it's Daniel. The exact same phrase about not changing his number for 7 years that he's used multiple times before. Yet again, a fake "mediator" to just draw attention / distract / make drama.

Regarding the lack of victims, lol. They just give up trying. Suhail AlHashemi comes to mind from the History of Daniel Mandelbaum in the Wargaming Community thread. To quote some excerpts of his emails:

Suhail AlHeshemi wrote:I contacted Matt on Feb. this year (2011), i got eluded into the idea that he could scratch build 2 Thunderhawks (For myself and a friend). I did all the talks with him through my personal email.

At first he would reply instantly (same day or the next). We went over the specifics and after several emails, we both confirmed on the price tag and the completion date (he said it would take 4 weeks). However, as the weeks went by, his replies were slow till the point were i am ignored now.

He asked for half of the cost to begin work, and to receive the other half after showing the complete products. I kept asking for WIP pics, but he never provided any, always stating that he would eventually show me something.

Within weeks, i began to panic because he never showed nor spoke of the commission. I do not recall when it was (i would guess about 3 months), he vanished..... no word, no email, nothing.

I then discovered he had a blog, and that a bunch of people share the blog. I sent an email asking if Matt could reply back to me, i was told that he left the country for work and that his return to the country was not known.

Then comes September and Matt finally replies back. He sent me 2 pictures of a single Thunderhawk in different angles, without saying anything. I did not know what to make out of it and asked for a refund.

I've asked him many times to refund the money sent but he replied back " i dont have the cash, either wait for me to sell the thunderhawks or till i get paid"

His last email (september 27th 2011) i told him "im afraid to send you money, since ive been waiting since feb." , he replies back with "I didnt ask you to send money did i?"

Suhail AlHashemi wrote:It's so funny how Matt or Daniel contacted me a couple of days back (August 2012)... Saying how sorry he feels and how badly he treated me.
He said he would "Get back to me soon" to discuss my refund. I simply laughed at him saying that i do not expect to see my refund and that he has no right to ask for forgiveness.

Haha, and this part was weird... but he specifically said "But i need you to promise..."

I was shocked he expected me to accept ....

He went on "You do not contact nor talk to anyone in Dakka, nor do you share anything"

I think i see why he would say this..... You guys are onto him ^^

Suhail AlHashemi wrote:However, since I'm living abroad and so far away from U.S. , and realising I would never get anything from Daniel. I eventually accepted to move on and disposed of everything. (I'm only left with emails).

I'd like to give him a call and see what he has to say. But I do not expect much. I can't believe he'd send a refund back.

As Tom says, Daniel it's obvious that you never change your stripes, you only do "damage control" to try to keep your scams going, and only refund people to that end. Otherwise, you would have voluntarily refunded people like Suhail AlHashemi, who have no recourse to force you to do so. The most damning part of the above? That it all happened while you supposedly weren't selling anything, running a "clean" blog with other contributors- "Miniature Wargame Conversions". All while running scams like the above in the background!

And that's why this thread exists, so that people realize your pattern of lying, making fake "mediators" or duping real ones, and basically running a ponzi scheme of paying back a few people to keep others in the lurch until their Paypal refund windows run out, or they give up trying to get refunded, etc... just like Suhail did.

There's really nothing more to say to you except that we'll always be watching, and always ready to expose you and have you shut down the moment you pop your head up to try another scam. Take your BS elsewhere, as the whole community is aware of you now and keeping watch for your schemes. You will never again turn a profit running scams on the wargaming community and, as has happened with your last several efforts, you will be exposed more and more quickly and get less and less money out of it. The community is on to you and through sheer weight of numbers will make it impossible for you to effectively scam wargamers for long in any future scheme.

Your pattern is identical and you can't even keep from typing just like yourself above. It'd be hilarious if it wasn't so sad. Oh well, some people never learn, and you're clearly one of them- so we'll be watching for you, always.

How am I Daniel, when you can freely see the picture of me with him on FB.

How can I be guilty by association?

Also to my recollection Daniel tried to call a truce on this by asking a thread be made where any "victims" can post saying anything that they are owed as long as they have proof.

@aerethan: possibly because Daniel no longer has your phone number. Why don't you give it to me with your extension and I'll call you again.


Danny, your boyfriend/husband/whatever, called Aerethian's place of work MANY times and tried to get him fired. That's not a truce by any use of the word in Kronk's book, and Kronk's book has a lot of big words.

But you and Dan are the victims, though. Carry on.

If I actually thought it would help him, I'd even offer to write his apology letter to give to the community to correct his mistakes, write his wrongs, and open a new front with his name on it, brazenly displayed and out in the open. I'd even offer to write a policy for him to offer scam protection against his clients, which would require him to trust his clients. But I've heard what he's done to everyone who tried to help him, and I don't want that level of harassment if/when things go sour. I'd actually only operate here on Dakka by PM, and never give him my name, if he approached me first. He's also have to be truly repentant and accept help depending on my busy schedule. The point of this message, Dan, since I'm sure you're reading, is that you have phenomenal talent. Everyone here knows it. Nobody argued it. If you tried to go straight, you'd make a butt ton of cash. Coming clean, you can become a pillar of the community, not a plague. Nobody here is out for blood, we're here for awesome army men. Help that be a reality, not a falsity.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Nope sorry, no one is interested in doing business with Daniel Mandelbaum. That bridge has burned and the ground has been salted and cursed by gods and men.

Guys, enough with posting just to say how entertained you are, or if you have nothing in particular to add here.

Stay on topic and if there isn't much of note going on, let it be.
