Unfortunately no not yet, he changes his name every time that he starts selling again. :evil:   Strangely enough, I just got my response to the question I asked from above:

My name is Jerry? What do you mean? Anyway, have a good day anyhow. Thanks Jerry


Hows that for a shocking answer, huh?  :roll:  And lo' and behold his name once agin begins with a "J". :roll:

Where does "Jerry" fit into the family tree?  The bastard love child of Jason and Sarah, perhaps?  Maybe the last living relative after everyone else died in a tragic moving accident (ran over by the moving truck as they zipped up and down Interstate 81 changing addresses).

Seriously, what's with this guy. :?  Doesn't he know that the deer in headlights, "I don't know what you are talking about" response didn't work the first time, so it sure in hell is not going to work on the second, third and forth times.  :roll:

My name is James Corvin....and I have NO idea who the Damn Eastern Treasure Chest is?? Damn I wish I did....I'd Cuss there butt out myself!!  LORD I'll be the First to Admit I've had a Few Problems had got a couple friends from my old hobby shop to help me out with everything. But DAMN I didn't send out a Post Card saying PLEASE send us the sasser virus!? Everyone keeps saying I make Excuses? Well when your email starts bouncing emails when your email box is not even full...saying its over quota and your not even close..and it progressivley gets worse, by shuffling and deleting emails basically at will! I TRULY thought we had an email problem. But when it started spreading on to my other computer files, that when I knew something was really wrong! Nortan never once alerted me to a virus in the computer? I didn't have any idea it was happening. We finally got the bug removed, but they had to clean out our Entire system, and empty our mail box and all...which naturally caused us to Lose ALL our emails. Now guys...I'm now Pro here, and have had to learn as I go. So we were emailing off the information we had in paypal, but with them making you log in again EVERY time you turn your head...that was a pretty slow process. We got Updated to the new Version of the MyEbay...and has GREATLY Helped us, and has made things much easier and faster. I'm TRULY sorry for ANY problems I've had in the begining. But I am a Nice Guy, and have nor EVER had any intention of EVER doing anyone wrong!?  So PLEASE cut me a little slack. When I saw these postings...mentioning the chest, and that I was a CROOK!? That pretty much blew me away! Well I really dont know what else to say. You guys have to have something to talk about...I guess?  :roll:  But Dang it guys...at least let me know who the Hell I'm being accused of being. Damn, Ebay has ALL my info., I dont know what the Deal is with this?

Listing under the name the_wizards_of_all_things


Thats right ladies and gentlemen our old friend jonb7839/TGE/ETC is now back on Ebay looking to take your money and not ship your product. :roll:   Not like this needs to be said or anything, but once again for those of you who don't know already:



AVOID THIS GUY LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!




You know, the one thing being overlooked in the hilarity...



What a pile of RPG shit Jonb has for sale!



Stained, creased, staple rusted items that look worse than used toilet paper.  Is he just testing the waters before tossing out a Blasted Lands?  Or is this the only crap he's got left?

Oh don't worry, he started out slowly last time.  Give it a couple of weeks or so and soon you will see that he has over 100 auctions.  Remember, I originally post the last jonb thread first thing in the morning on March 24, 2005.  Checking here:

viewtopic.php?t=1898&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=156

BTB, mentioned his now increasing sales on April 3rd, 2005:

Beyondthebreach wrote:57 items!  Not bad for someone brand new to ebay!  Hell, I have been selling for two years and I can handle only about 55-65 auctions at one time.  

He must be quite the prodigy.  8)


So, last time it took him about 2 weeks to start to crank it up to a higher level of auctions.  I would anticipate much of the same this time, perhaps even a little longer than last time.

Actually, he bought an item from PS in the second Steve Marsh auction, so his actual postal address should be available. Did anyone check that out at the time?

Things of note.....

1. He reads these forums and is probably atching this unfold.

2. I had extensive converations with him by e-mail last time. He is clearly not the sharpest tool in the box. Quite a bit below average intelligence judging from his correspondence. It shows through in his auctions and the fact that he hasn't managed to learn in the past three years. He can't nderstand how to avoid being spotted and hasn't developed his fraud to a point where he can get away with it even for a short time. He's just a redneck with a computer, not quite bright enough to get through life.

3. Surely someone here can scope him out on the ground. If this guy was in the UK one of us would go take a look and see what he was all about. Once we have our first purchase and an address, why not get a photo of his house and post it for all to see. Maybe there's a 'Children Beware!' sign in his front window. Maybe that's why he's been gone these past 18 months.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . gummy bears.

So he is Jerry ...

Message sent ...

Please join the forums at index.php . Given that you sell RARE D&D items this would be a good place to introduce yourself and gather more interest in purchasing your items.


Lets see the response.

You know, I'm trying to sustain my hatred of this guy but it's hard...

Because he's selling pieces of shit.

I honestly will be surprised if he sells anything he's listed so far for more than his minimum bids.  They look terrible, and read the descriptions.  He's basically advertising beat up pieces of crap.  And those photos?  If we didn't know who he was, we'd post this in the Awful Descriptions thread.  These are photos that actually SCARE YOU AWAY rather than entice you.  
  The story on this guy is he used to post things EVERYONE wanted in decent condition, and then not send the stuff.  He's reduced to posted really beat up, fairly common items.  Unless he picks up the pace, I'm sorry, I'm going to have to go back to Cougie bashing as this guy is less a menace than just a big joke.

CMon Jon B show us some REAL scamming for Gods sake!!!!

Why is it that when I read his auction descriptions all I can think of is one of those sleazy used car salesmen yelling like a madman trying to get everyone within ten miles to hear him?

WOW!!! LOOK AT THIS PIECE OF TOTAL SHIT UP FOR AUCTION!!! BUY FROM ME AND I PROMISE I WON'T SCREW YOU OVER!!!! AT LEAST NOT FOR ANOTHER FEW MONTHS!!!!  SERIOUSLY...MY BROTHER, SISTER, AND UNCLE ALL DIED AND LEFT ME THEIR D&D COLLECTIONS!!!!  I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS STUFF EXCEPT THAT IT IS RARE, RARE, RARE!!!!!!!!!!

I hope the FBI goes looking for him and shoots him with a taser.  :D

I've had to file small claims suits for my office here - you have to pay a sheriff's deputy to serve the deadbeat with papers and there is a small court cost, but if you win you can add your costs to your recovery.

Thanks bclarkie for the heads up on this guy.  I never blocked a bidder before, but this seems a good time to begin.

He's forgotten to wipe the c*m shots off the lense of his camera...
