Also, for the record, I did a search on the North Carolina Secretary of State Website and I was unable to find a single solitary listing to for either person's name as a business owner. It's difficult to tell if that a business that closed back in 1998 would still be on there, but I did confirm that it does contain business created from long before then and it also contains old dissolved businesses, too.

I would also be interested in seeing the content of the email that was sent to them by the member, because the answer that Foul posted seems to answer a lot of questions in relation to the previous incarnations that would not be something if they were completely unknown, they would have not ever know to address in their response.

You know, I've actually put together a theory that Game Emporium and bclarkie are a Jekyll & Hyde sort of duo.  Still working out the specifics of that, but the timing is suspicious.

Well, I did some more digging and hilariously enough, I did in fact find Joyce's Facebook profile:

https://www.facebook.com/FOXY62?ref=br_rs

Here is where it gets really good though, as I was scrolling through it, I happened to notice that one of the commenters was "Robert Callahan", which will come as a surprise to no one that is a former alias of the scam artist in question:

https://www.acaeum.com/forum/viewtopic. ... =1#p154661

And in case there is any doubt there, good old Robert Callahan is in fact from Pulaski Virginia:

https://www.facebook.com/robert.callahan.39589?fref=ufi

While searching Robert Callahan's profile, I found none other than Jon Bassett, twice:

https://www.facebook.com/woody.danzler.7

https://www.facebook.com/jon.bassett.399

So yeah, they're one in the same seller.  I'm not sure how they all connect, although this seems to be either someone either operating multiple fake Facebook profiles, a scheme of multiple real people or perhaps "Joyce" has been stealing her friends names to sell on Ebay under them.

No matter what, it would be in everyone's best interests to avoid, avoid, avoid. :)

FTR, in case these profiles start magically disappearing, I have screen shots of all of them.

Feels like old times around here now.

Great job, bclarkie!  I knew there was a reason we've kept you around.

Well, that's because he's (actually) passed away:

I would have to say that the background image in the Robert Callahan FB profile is the nail in the coffin so to speak, as it is the same one that She_Wolf uses for her eBay listings.

Great job BClarkie of hunting down the old info from Eastern Treasure Chest and The Game Emporium, then connecting the dots through their social media profiles.

Honestly, when I read about people like this, and Cougar, etc. I just don't get it.  I know some of the rares are worth real cash, but by and large D&D selling and collecting isn't a very lucrative activity.  Is it really worth all the subterfuge and effort to scam people?  These aren't stolen diamonds we're buying and selling here.   Seems like an awful lot of work for such a small return.  

My two cents.

Does this mean we can start arguing about politics again?

Last Friday I had my monthly Book Club discussion at the Library. The book was David McCullough's 1776. I went ahead and took the Loyalist's Position since I knew no one else would - how can you have a good discussion if everyone agrees with each other?

Had all of my talking points worked out, tons of cited data - completely loaded for Bear.

It was a good time, those Rebel loving ingrates didn't know what hit 'em  :D

You didn't say it had to be Modern politics!

That was a huge amount of work to put in, guys. Well done. Personally I had already decided she was guilty based on the obvious evidence. Grammar always outs. Besides, the default action of someone who is truly innocent is not to come up with explanations of why they are, it is to get ANGRY at the false accusation.

FYI- Just to keep this clear to any who may stumble on here, I updated the title of the thread to reflect the new seller name being used.

Hmmm I purchased two shrink ad&d 2nd edition modules from shewolf a couple of months ago. The prices were reasonable. Should I be worried they're fakes? Like if I open it up is it filled with blank sheets?   :?

We haven't heard of that tactic.  The modules are almost certainly fine; you got lucky, and dealt with him during the run-up phase.

I got lucky too, I bought something from him last week before realizing it was the same person from this thread. Fortunately it was a fairly low value item ($20) and everything worked out OK.

I will definitely be more careful next time checking seller names, and I'd not buy anything of significant value from him for sure.

So many great old names popping up out of the woodwork I thought I'd jump in too. Still lurking. Love you guys, Sherlock himself would doff his cap.
