Yes this is happening too often, a list needs to be maintained of these people and shared with sellers, we will all pay higher prices because of scammers.

That's a great idea. Would we have to get permission from a mod to do it? I only ask because we would be putting people's names on it.. This would help with sellers so much. it might be a pain in the a** to check the list every time someone you don't no is making a purchase but it will be worth it in the long run

Hi ,

I will pm the info soon. along with his paypal account address.

The problem is that I like paypal. And everyone use it. I am afraid to sue them as they might decide to close my account somehow. Is that even possible for them to do ?

Because they ripped him off for $1000 dollars and he is trying to get his money back from Visa/PayPal. He is a smaller company so between building the lasers and answering all the emails he gets every day he sometimes get a bit behind.
Just try to be patient with him please.

Yes the thread exists, but as it contains personal data emails, addresses, names, etc, it was decided that the vets section was the best place for it.

If any forum member wishes to check a prospective buyers credentials, all they need do is email a vet with the details.:beer:

There are web sites you can report scammers to where their name is published for anyone to search, I'd find one of those and add it along with his email address.

Offering more than one way to pay will also bring more business, only about 1 in 10 people with Internet access even have a PayPal account, and many people can't use it even if they wanted to because many banks and some visa/mc aren't compatible.

Joker I know that you provide the best customer service that you can due to your busy scheduled. I have one of your hosts that a friend purchased for me to complete on of my builds. Could not be happier with it. I left a reply in the last thread about this jerk! Was not he the one that had friends on here and was going to beat you up and ruin your business on LPF! Its half a year later and this clown is the only one I have ever seen do any thing of this magnitude to one of our best suppliers. I hate this clown more than words can say but I think for the fairness of the forum This one time that his name be brought out in the open so that no one else gets burned by him

Ok added. Hopefully we can stop him scamming others. If you had his LPF user name, that would be helpful too. :beer:
