I'm sure we'll have flushed him out as soon as Blasted Lands and Beastmaker Mountain turn up on eBay.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Buy them on a credit card. Chargeback and screw him before he can screw everyone else.

I am really sorry to dig up this old thread, but an article I just read on CNN is very pertinent to our old friend for whenever he decides to show up again. :roll:

404 Error Message - SI.com

This guy actually almost got prison time for stealing peoples money on EBay and it was for only $1700.00. Being that good ole jonb has been at this through many different screen names over the course of several years, I would strongly suggest that when he does show up again, we really make a determined effort to get this guy tossed in the clink. I can guarentee that he stolen far more than $1700 over the course of his reign of terror, so assuming that enough effort is put into it, I am sure that we can shut him down for good. I still for the life of cannot figure out how he has been able to get away with scamming so many people for so long, but I guess it is just a matter of continuing to follow up in the pursuit of putting this guy down for good.

There was an article in the local paper the other day about a guy who's facing a 4-yr sentence for the same thing, and he bilked people out of about $4000 on ebay.

wow, that seems harsh!  Four years in a cell with Bubba the horny truck driver.  What if he just gave the money back and said sorry?

*bumpidy*

In lieu of the now 4th return of the D&D collectors nemesis jonb7839/TGE/ETC, this thread certainly needs to be bumped for all those around who were here for the most recent incarnation of this moron.  Once again it really needs to be said that avoiding this guy is of utmost importance.

The question is how long before he shows up again? My guess will probably be around November, so keep an eye out.

As far as I can tell, this quote from Mon Jul 04, 2005 9:40 am is the last time he was positively identified.  So either he's gone for good, or he's taking an uncharacteristically long break between scams.

[edit] Damn it, warn me when I'm saying something stupid, B.  Sheesh.

What would make you think this?  Where are the similarities?

Really? I've yet to see you proved wrong, but just how the hell do you know?

(and I thought you'd retired :wink: )


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Primarily:

  • Wytheville, Va.  
  • Over use of "!!" and use of "Rare", when it's anything but.
  • Same starting prices.
  • Multiple underscores in the name. Just like the_game_emporium, the_wizards_of_all_things, the_eastern_treasure_chest, etc.
  • Also, If I remember correctly, in the past he has usually re-started his catastrophes either right before Christmas or right about now in May.
  • The listings are toned down a bit, probably to help avoid detection, but I am about 99.5% sure this is the newest incarnation of our old old friend.

And this one is way too big for me to pass up, at least initially.

:wink:

ETA: It's good to see that they finally decided to NOT go with the all white background this time and move to the all dark green instead.  :lol:
