I have not seen him online and have dropped a PM everyother day, I am 5 Days away from the Claim being decided, though I am not sure how paypal decides, hopefully they favor the one who posts as he still has not written anything.

I was just looking into his posts and saw that he had posted on a North Alamaba players thread.

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/392793.page

Looks like he edited his post out. Is there any way a mod could look into recovering the OP? Please? Thanks!

ADD: He also posted Looking For Game here...

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/420684.page

Another UPDATE: Ive got another of his usernames, skimmed from a WoW forum and Guild page. Let me know if you want it. Ill be looking a little closer at this and will post/share any results i find.

Mods - THIS IS NOT PERSONAL INFORMATION.
It's information about a business. My apologies if this falls under your rules about sharing personal info. I thought about it, and I figured that it would be okay, since it's not personal info for anyone:

I couldn't find any phone #'s for him, but I found this:

Oakhaven
3503 Marvyn Pkwy
Opelika, AL 36804
Phone: (334) 745-0116


http://www.allthealabama.com/Local/Alabama/Opelika/Mobile+Homes+-+Parks+%26+Communities/oakhaven_9060502

That's the info for the mobile home park.

You'd be surprised what kind of assistance you can get from the landlord if you call, tell them what's going on, and ask if they can help you get in touch with their tenant in any way.


One person calling may not get a lot of help, but if everyone in the thread who was ripped off called...

Here are some of his neighbors (Note: he's not listed):

The more info I find, the more I think this guy was using his parents' place for his shenanigans. He has an Xbox Live account under the name of <censored> and has also posted on WoW forums about his crappy little level 20 Paladin using the same email address he used for his Paypal. While these may be the hobbies of a 55 year old man, Im more inclined to think that the picture shown on his Facebook account is more accurate. Using mommy and daddy to perpetrate your crimes is bad news. I bet they are so proud...

If by "the swirling nether," you mean "his miniature case," then I agree.

Really, the same system that a lot of Bartertown users use should be insisted upon by traders here. if you have a lower rating in the Reputable Traders list, you ship first. Period. End of Story. Of course this means that the list needs to be updated much more often. It's up to the traders to watch out for themselves.

Going by this, I'm 90% sure I just saved myself from getting off in the last couple days by sticking to my guns and insisting the other party ship their items before I pay for them. The user has/had two posts total on Dakka, both in his Swap Shop thread. We'll see what they agree to. I'm HIGHLY doubtful it'll go anywhere, as it all smells fishy to me...

Really, the same system that Bartertown uses should try to be implemented here. if you have a lower rating in the Reputable Traders list, you ship first. Period. End of Story.


To be fair, that's not the Bartertown system. It's a common misconception.
While it is the most common convention on the site, and one that I ascribe to myself, it is not something that we officially support. The only system we officially support is that traders should decide between themselves what the trade terms are, including who ships in what order.

Sorry to go off-topic. I won't delve into this further here. I just didn't want that mistake to spread any farther into the thread.

I know this is a little bit of thread jumping, but in relief to myself and another user on Dakka who asked my opinion of the 'ripoff' artist. We didn't lose our models or money. Good luck in your attempts friends.

What I do not get is why he would set up 5+ Trades just to rip us all of when he had a good trade with Martin74 and a sale on Ebay why ruin the start of a good rep?

As a general note (since it came up) I also encourage folks to ask others to ship first if they're unsure about the other trader for some reason... however, in that case I usually end up not wanting to commit to a trade at all, and so rarely end up asking the other party to ship first. I.e., someone with very little in the way of posts/reputation/etc... I would likely only do a very small trade, or none at all.

The other thing that offers by far the most protection is using Paypal... the problem is, many of us have more models sitting around than funds but they do all the work for you and, in most cases (especially in ones like this where many people are aggrieved) they make the right decision.

Is anyone still waiting on a refund from Paypal? Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that those who sent models will be able to get them back without taking further action (i.e. contacting the authorities / filing for mail fraud, or the like, which may not be worth the effort depending on the amount of items sent).

I just had a pretty good trade with the guy. I traded some GK stuff for some BA stuff, and it seemed to work out pretty well. Although, now I'm curious and wondering if I didn't end up with some people's stuff instead....

Mainly looking at Magnix. Do you have pictures of the stuff you sent him?


If I've got a trade you're interested in but you don't have anything on my wanted list, just shoot me a PM and ask! I'm easily distracted!

I have a current purchase from him. He told me the same thing with the shipping delay due to the weather. He told me my item was shipped on Monday, and I should receive it Wednesday. I contacted him for a tracking number, but haven't received anything yet. He has been quite responsive via private messages. I am hoping my stuff comes in tomorrow. I will watch this thread and see if you guys have any updates. If I don't see my stuff in a day or so, I guess I can start a refund/dispute process with PayPal.

I did ask to the mods to do so and never got a response. I think it has something to do with the release of personal information.

Also, Donkee...He will make you wait for a looong time before finally he just stops communicating altogether. Id suggest starting your Paypal Claim RIGHT NOW. This fellow is no good and he has already screwed like 10 people.

Really, I have developed a deep and lasting hatred for this guy and wish the very worst of fates upon him and his family. Yay...

Luna- we are not able to "unedit" messages. Sorry I didn't reply to you about that, Captain_Obvious- I looked into it but once the edit is done the text is gone for good as far as our technical ability to get it, unless there's an external site that saved it.

However, it seems most users have the email address and address of this user- if you don't have it, please PM me and I can give it to you.

Both accounts are being permanently suspended. We generally try to allow an account to stay open for a brief period after a TR is posted, even if the person isn't responding, in case something "real life" is going on and they can't.

However, clearly that isn't the case here. The "Snaffu420" account was created the day this TR was opened. It is entirely possible that items obtained from people ripped off here were being sold off there.

It would be helpful if people who have successfully (or unsuccessfully) traded with Snaffu420 could post here. As always, off-topic posts or posts discussing general policy will need to be deleted to keep this thread free for those involved to coordinate their communications / efforts.

So because i make an account the same day this guy goes scammer crazy means that i am him? last i checked im not a guy for one and for two just because some one lives in the same state does not mean that it is indeed the same person but if you folks here at dakka like to make that stereo type then that is fine by me i was ok befor finding your service and ill be just fine after the fact , maybe if some one had PMed me and Inquired about it my name would have stayed out of many members mouths but it is what it is , to late now but seeing as this other user "lives" in the same area i could have tried helping you guys tracking him down. but its ok if you guys cant tell the difference between a penis and a vagina then ill just chalk that up to to many hours under a bright lamp. Ritides go ahead and suspend the account its of no use for me anymore as you guys pretty much tarnished the name i was trying to build for my self any way have fun guys was a nice place to troll while it lasted and thanks to those of you who have completed successful trades on both ends was a huge help for me! , and those of you wanting to know where i game...i game in Montgomery at visions come see me some time ill gladly meet you there.



oh and PS since ive started trading here ive had no bad feedback maybe a tad of a delay with shipping but i do have small children and being a single mom that does tend to get in the way , anyway ill pack my diaper bag and get out of dodge if you guys are gonna have some stereo typical ignorance towards me , for those of you that are awaiting items have no fear they will get to you in the described condition and again i am sorry for the delay.
