If it was me I would have sued him by now. Talk to a real person, stop playing around online and deal with it directly. Jake is fortunate to have not caused me any real problems. You sue merely because it will cause the other person a great deal of trouble even if you are in another state.

Honestly, this person is well known for bad deals, it's old news to those who have been here more then a month. God knows what happened that caused him to fall back this badly where it's caught up with him.

On the other hand: It's also extremely inappropriate to give a person's address on a public forum no matter what they did. Save that for PMs.

Has anyone contacted C0ld? Ban this guy fully. IP ban and remove this nonsense. I'll contact C0ld myself. This is going too far and I don't want a person like this on the forum. This makes US all look bad; that's what matters. This forum is more important then one member that is a total mess and a disgrace. My concern is the forum and this is embrassing.
Totally agreed.

i would never do such a thing as giving someones personal details out in public view, no way, i respect mine and others privacy.

i made this thread due to the large number of people complaining about jake.
he is now emailing me and claims he sent the kit back to me.
i guess only time decides

and it seems like a good idea to contact cold

all the newbies standing up for jake sayin give him some time appearantly havent really been here that long....i think it was daguin who once said "jake has been a problem almost since the day he joined"... him and his best lpf friend should have been banned a long time ago.

just my $1 cuz i aint got .02$
I woudn't call myself a newbie, and I'm sticking up for him, at least for a while. He is selling everything to get out of the hobby, so banning him would only have the effect of stopping him sort the problems out

How will banning Jake stop him from sorting out his problems? That is just silly!

Well, for one example, the build he did for "svars1" will just be ignored if he is banned, as he can't contact him.

Also, I know that you are just going to say "he isn't sorting it," but he came back for a reason. What do you think that reason is?

That is totally ridiculous. Jake has been ignoring Svars1 for quite a while... even though he had access to the forum. Why will the fact that Jake is now banned cause him to ignore Svars? What is preventing Jake from emailing him? :thinking:

Svars, do you have Jake's email address?

To scam as many n00bs as possible before he bails..:whistle:and to unload what stock he had left.
There is still a few n00bs on his GB waiting for sleds...Hmmmm

Maybe I'm wrong. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, and with Glenn, bought out all of his stock. If I get them, I'll be happy. If I don't, paypal should take care of it.

The whole issue is stupid. He builds a clientele and makes a pile of friends and then throws it all away over a few bucks. WTF is wrong with him?
