Greetings!  I am a newbie to this site. I just thought I was a savy eBayer and  collector until I started reading the posts of this august body.  This is my first posting and an inauspicious start it will be.  I too have been burned by The Game Crematorium.  I gave up trying as it was only a few bucks for a Traveler module.  I spoke to a woman, presumably Sarah, who gave me the following number to reach Jason, 276-228-8217.  I never got an answer.  Like everyone else my e-mails either bounced or went unanswered.  A couple of other eBayers contacted me.  In addition to the report filed with the FBI a complaint has been lodged with a fraud unit in the state of Virginia.  I was made aware of http://www.ebayersthatsuck.com and took my shot at James/Jason/whoever.  I encourage everyone else to do the same.  If this guy shows up on eBay under a different name I am going to have some fun with him, since eBay is incapable of policing obvious fraud or negligence and profitting from it as well.  The silver lining is I found this forum and had a good laugh.  May all of you experience good cube tactics.

Finally someone who does the right thing. It is great news that this whole issue is now handled by the FBI.

Badmike wrote:Hopefully "Jason at college" is taking business management courses.  Games Vomitorium just posted it's 99th negative (unique buyers; they have over 200 in all).  Congrats!  Maybe they can celebrate by actually sending out an order; only six of their last 25 feedback is positive (and five were to the same person). If you haven't gotten your stuff already, I don't think you will, it looks like they have stopped sending anything and are going to disappear and pop up again with a new name in a few months.

As of an hour ago, ONE positive out of their last 25 feedbacks.

Make that criminal law.  It will come in handy sooner.

That dude (TGE) is like fungus... he'll be back.

We need to watch for some of his 'tells' (ie, posting style, retaliatory negs, etc..)

Good Riddance.

What's weird though, is it does seem that he HAS this stuff to sell.  I mean, his pics look original and all.  I would think a fraudster of his type would just have 'stock' pics and actually not have the items.

It's just weird.  Glad he's gone.

Oh well, the Game Emporium is no longer a registered user of Ebay.

And there was much rejoicing in the heavens ...

Let's be sure to keep a lookout for any_suspicious_members that seem to hold to the same template.

I can hear it now ...

You know...if we could prove that the new identity is this piece of shit, then someone could out him, and let the world know that the guy is a waste of sperm.

Lets keep our eyes open.  Remember, sharp eyed guys from this forum were the ones that made the link between Eastern Treasure Chest and Games Emporium; like herpes, they'll pop up again with a new name as "Biff and Polly" strive to steal the money of unsuspecting gamers.  It's been a fun run on this forum giving them hell, let's do it again soon...

I did a little digging around and found this out :wink: :

TGE is located in Wytheville, VA 24382

ETC is located in Pulaski, VA 24301

They are connected directly via I-81 and only 23.5 miles apart 8O !

So keep on the lookout for new sellers from the two areas plus surrounding areas. See map at this link:

Anybody have an actual address for these two?

Anyone want to roadtrip to VA and pee on his lawn just to make sure we have all the bases covered? :)


No prob..(zipping up fly and getting back in car)  ;)
