Space Marine Scout with Sniper Rifle

This is the entire transaction report as best as I can lay out for everyone between myself and StarGate. He may run under different names on different websites. We had agreed on 70.00 (shipped) for 10 space marine bikes and 10 scout bikes. The origional post can be found here http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/331541.page. I mailed out the postal money order on 12/16/2010 and to this point have received nothing from him. So far I have contacted him via this site and several online dating sites that I was able to tie him to via his IM information that he lists in his Dakka Profile http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/user/profile/4058.page. Personal Info Redacted - MGMT Believe me when I say I have gone to great lengths to track this guy down and have him respond to me. After calling him via my cell phone and getting no answer I signed up for a Google Voice account and picked a number from his area code. He answered that call and after I identified myself he instantly hung up. At this point I have filed Mail Fraud charges and do not expect this individual to hold up his end of the transaction.

Our IM conversation via Dakka...

2010/12/15 05:11:09
me: Did you already sell off the entire thing? I was interested in the bikes if they are still around.

2010/12/15 21:04:26
him: I have a few bikers left about twenty all together 10 scouts and 10 regular ones

2010/12/16 14:15:56
me: If you are interested in getting them out the door, I would do 60 for the whole lot.

2010/12/16 19:07:30
him: I can do do that , were is it going too go too need a address?

2010/12/16 19:34:48
me: Excellent. Would you prefer PayPal or a money order?
[my address]

2010/12/16 19:42:22
him: money order.
shipping will be about 10 dollars.... do you want custom resin bases too?

2010/12/16 19:59:52
me: Oh I thought that was 60 bucks shipped. But no matter, tis the season and all. If you want to throw in the bases that's fine. Where should I send the money order?

2010/12/16 20:12:07
him: Oh trust me you might get more then those bikers...
I do Casting in resin and metal, If i have extra bikes and guys i'll throw them in plus weapon... (melta, plasma, flamer, powerfist)

I sold off my Original army which was all GW stuff, But i have my Resin army which i break up for people when they want things that are hard too find or to expensive( like bikes and termies) I dont do vechicle, But i do have molds for robed marines, grey knights, termies, Ravenguard(forgeworld) .

If you want more bike, just let me know and i will just bill you for the material which 25 plus shipping( it make about 30 to 40 bikes) and you cant tell the difference

2010/12/16 20:41:41
me: Thanks for the offer on the resin bikes but I think I will pass. I would like to just confirm that the 20 bikes that I will be buying are not resin cast. But other than that we have a deal.

2010/12/16 21:05:01
him: No there not resin cast but the weapons melta guns,flamer,powerfist and the beaky helmets are resin rest of the bikes are plastic.

2010/12/16 21:00:57
me: Also, just thought I wold throw this out to you. I can send via PayPal and mark it as a "personal payment owed" and there won't be any transaction fees. Assuming that you have it set up with a bank account and not a credit card. Or I can just go with the money order at the Post Office.

2010/12/16 21:08:03
him: I just use paypal too send money not too recieve it so its set up as a credit card account. just do a post office M/o it will be find.

I also had a terrible experience with this person. I bought a huge army off of him. As soon as I paid he dropped off the face of the earth for two weeks, then finally he did ship it and when I received the army I found out that a good portion of it was crappy resin reproductions he made in his own garage and crumbled to dust when you handled it. I filed a complaint with paypal and eventually got all my money back but he was the only person I have had trouble dealing with on Dakka. I have no doubt he is still trying to sell his resin counterfeits as real gw models.

Two things spring to mind when reading this,

One, he learned his lesson, that lesson that paypal will pull the money back from his account, so he switched to money order, which has only the slowest people on the planet minding the store.

Please leave the snark and insinuations out of Transaction Reports - MGMT

My advice is follow up with the post office, contact the local law enforcement where he lives, give all his information and ask if they can help. I had a guy try something similar to this back in 05, I called the local PD and the guy I talked to stopped by and boom, got my stuff.
