I never found out why his camera was so blurry....he never replied to me.  :(

Never got a chance to use my fake Ebay/paypal ids  :(

Congrats to BC.....some may think you are  pain in the posterior, but this has to rank as an all time slam dunk, stopping  a known ebay thief and scumbag before he barely got started.  Hopefully the multiple emails sent to Ebay about this person put a lightbulb over someone's head.  Thanks to Brian for being on top of this from the start...it's no secret I frikken hate John/Jerry more than any scumbag ebay thief EVER (see past postings) and except for a one person fatality car crash victim there is nothing I would want to see happen to him more than this.  Hopefully if he rears his head again we'll be here again to kick him down.  
  A bit of speculation here, do you think the emails to ebay got them to check ids, and they noticed similar/the same names on the ids of Game Emporium, Eastern Treasure Chest, Jon B and Wizards?  Or that contact information for the individual was fake?  It's just that I've never seen ebay move so quickly to dump a person unless there was very compelling evidence.
    Happy Holidays!!!!!!

Congrats guys! That was an awesome piece of work. It all started and ended before I could even check his auctions out (see what you miss when you only get on this site once a week).

Hey I can't take full credit for this I am sure that everyone else who emailed Ebay helped the cause out tremendously.  I am just very shocked and surprised that Ebay acted so quickly on it this time.  :o  The shame of it all is that the last time that it happened with jonb7839, that people had to get money stolen from them again beofre Ebay acted.



One other thing though is that I am not going to kid myself into thinking that this is the last time for either though.  I am sure that he is most likely already planning his next go around and probably much sooner than last time since he got kicked to the curb so quickly this time.  As a matter of fact I will not be surprised at all if he start listing stuff under the Undergroundplaza ID any time now.  I think that to cover all my bases that I am also going to report that ID as well just to be sure in the next day or so.  It would probably behoove of everyone else to do the same.  For reference here are the links to both the undergroundplaza ID and the Ebay link to report it if anyone else wants to join in:



Undergroundplaza Ebay ID



Report to Ebay



As long as everyone continues to keep an eye out for any other new suspicious IDs then hopefully we can finally put this a$$ hole to rest for good.  



Just remember that this was not a win for me, this was a win for everyone in this entire community, even those who do not visit this site.  :D

What connections have you made on  Undergroundplaza other than the fact that it is from Polaski, VA?  Auction listing are not even close and if he is buying feedback he is spending alot for it (51 bucks on a jersey)

Auctions are actually quite similar. Lots of exclamation points and the use of red to highlight specific words. Additionally, feedback is very close to how jonb7839/TGE/ETC left thiers in the past.  In conjunction with the fact that this person is also from Pulaski Virginia and the buyer at the time made a pretty self incrimnating comment to the person from who he purchased an item, brought about this suspicion in the first place. This undergroundplaza ID is certainly worth having Ebay check out.  Worst case scenario its not the same person.

The comment that was made earlier in the thread by BTB about buying feedback was made in reference to the_wizards_of_all_things ID as he has just puchsed a couple of items for a $0.01 and $0.06 respectively.  The undergroundplaza ID is an ID that myself and the other person in question believe is what he has been using in the meantime since jonb7839 got suspended.  It might be easier to understand if you read through the whole thread.

Sorry!

Been out of power up here in western Washington for the past 38 hours due to a major windstorm and just wanted a quick synopsis so that I did not have to hunt it up.

Now hunting through threads..............

Bravo Brian, great pursuit of this criminal!  

:P   :P   :P   :P   :P   :P

Early on I nearly got ripped off by the treasure chest myself, and it was only after a ridiculous amount of harassment that my item finally arrived.

Truly a lot of similarities...the background sheet, the oddball over the top description prose. But Hawaii?  Maybe Foul can track him down and take a look !  :wink:

Yeh, I thought the same thing; but who knows?  I can just see him thinking after last time "Hmmm, what's the farthest state away from virginia I can set up my new fake account in?"

I am fairly certain its not him.  :)   I say so, because despite his disgusting tactics, good ole' jonb knows exactly what he is selling and this guy in that auction clearly does not.   Jon's MO is to way overstate things conditions and their rarity and then not deliver what he is supposed to be selling.  Rarely do you ever see such wild misconceptions as they appear in that auction like:

THESE TWO BOOKLETS WENT OUT OF PRINT THE FIRST YEAR THEY WERE PUT OUT ON THE SHELVES AND WERE COSUQUIENTLY PUT OUT IN MULTIPLE PRINTINGS 2ND PRINT TO SIXTH PRINTINGS



Jon loves to say things are RARE!! and HARD TO FIND!! that clearly are not rare or hard to find,  however he would never have listed that M&M book as a 1st print as he would know that its obvious to everyone who knows anything that it is not a 1st print and so it does not make a good con.   Jon is also literate enough to make his auctions readable and they were written like an educated person which is why he is a good con man.  This auction is littered with gramatical errors and spelling mistakes and it looks like it was typed by a homeless person who flunked out of elementary school...or then again perhaps Cougarrinard, same difference.
