Beware of member 308's !!! He's a thief!!

Let it be known that files Member 308's ;also know as rick johnson or earl moberg who has addresses in both west palm beach fla and Illinois , has ripped me off for 115.00 sent to him via cashiers bank check for the purchase of a new steyer bolt!! Beware of member 308s as he is a dishonest man and this is not the first incident of this nature committed by earl here on the files according to my research!! Buyers beware!! Thanks to those members out there who are keeping it real and showing up as true community through kind actions and deeds!! Blessings fal guy(gregg)

ADMIN NOTE:
Title and text corrected from "308s" to "308's"

The other member by nearly the same name (the one without the apostrophe and possible the same guy) has not been active on this board since 2014.

Profile for member 308s has not been online here since 2014 and has no negative feedback. Are you sure you are calling out the correct member?

Can you explain your post. After looking at his feedback ratings and comments I am a little confused by your post. One semi bad review out of a long list of good ones. am I missing something.

When he first joined he bid on an auction I had and retracted his bid later due to an "incorrect description" he apparently hadn't read my post looked at the pictures or read the MP rules. Not technically a scammer but not a stand up guy. I couldn't leave feedback as no transaction took place.

Scammer

I alway's send a post money order, This way if you get ripped off, You can call the postal police and they will investigate it. One was a Fal Files member and the other was on Gun Broker.The issue was resolved with the Fal Files member, The Gun Broker person was arrested by the postal police and the guy got 5 years with no parole at all and is at Club Fed.

I am 99% sure I dealt with him a couple of years ago when he was in Florida. I got my stuff finally after almost a month and it wasn’t as discribed ( in my opinion ).... I was just happy I got it after that time.
First he claimed he was too sick to send a package and then later he claimed he didn’t have the money to send it.
I’m not sure what the story really was but I never did leave any feedback... my bad.

Is there a marketplace posting that relates to this transaction?

Please post more details.

Its weird that supposedly the same guy with two nearly-identical user names, and multiple user-feedback ratings under each user name, and only ONE negative feedback, is suddenly a "thief."

Please post more details.

If a member here will confirm that the guy the OP was dealing with is for-sure the same guy that was not active since 2014, I will merge the users to the newer user-name.

So in other words, "Not a scammer".

Start your own thread to bitch instead of doing it this one - where a real scammer is getting hammered.

The FAL Files has always banned confirmed thieves.

Please note that 'he-said-she-said' threads aren't the same thing as 'confirmation'.


And yes, it should be noted that guys with a lot of history and transaction success here are to be used as references with a lot more weight than the strident claims of newbs.

He is still here under the user name falcollector. Under this user name, he ripped off a bunch of people by humping reparked junk. I'm the only person who left him negative feedback. Apparently he is still selling behind the scenes (his feedback shows recent feedback from another shyster pureveggie), despite having not publicly posted since February.

That's twice you've accused the man of being a "shyster" or "sketchy". Yet your negative review only said he paid quickly - no specifics.

When I see 50 glowing reviews, and one negative, it leads me to believe the one making the negative review is the punk.

I have no problem with calling someone out, but try to back it up with actual facts, not some bullshit vague innuendos.

Put up or shut up.

^^^This^^^He gave out that negative feedback because of veggie's "vibe" whatever that is. Yeah Ole' lockjaw has been challenged with that several times, put up or shut up. One of the times when he was called out was for insinuating I cashed his money order and then requested yet another one from him just because I wanted to be a "prick."........

And, he insinuated I never sent a HTS set to him, so when I offered another set he wanted a refund instead. I sent his funds back, and I'm out a nice mathing metric set. I have more sets, so I don't miss the parts, however I do not like being "called" a lier and thief, for less. Than thirty bucks.

The biggest problem with religion is those who claim to know Jesus, then turn around and deny Him with their lifestyle. That is what a unbelieving world, simply finds unbelievable.

Before you die, you should have a will with extra copies. The old saying "No one will screw you faster than family" is bloody well true.

You couldn't provide a date that the set was shipped, not could you produce a tracking number. You were unapologetic and seemed bothered by my inquiries regarding the status of the parts. I had a rifle that needed completion. I chose to take the refund and move on.

You still have not suggested how I could have handled this situation differently, yet you perpetually slander me on this forum.

It seems apparent that yourself and G3Me have an unrelated axe to grind.... Your passive aggressive jabs have only recently taken place (around the same time others called out pureveggie) and our transactions concluded many months ago. Heck, G3Me even gave me positive feedback for the transaction he is bitching about.

And you gave pure veggie negative feedback while saying "This guy pays quick" .

But then call him "sketchy as a seller/trader" And later you call him a shyster. With nothing to back it up.

You could be right - but vague accusations are not facts.

Something like "condition of product not as advertised" or "non-paying buyer" would be useful. "Sketchy" means nothing.

Like I told you, I mailed the parts in a bubble mailer, which doesn't have tracking. So for all I know you received them and are full of shit, which I seriously doubt over less than $30.00. Your version of indifferent, unapologetic and bothered includes my offer to send you a replacement set, since I was trusting that the first sent went missing and you did NOT receive them? Offering a second set at my cost doesn't seem indifferent to me, but that's just my opinion. You wanted a refund, I sent your money back. The statement you made regarding my not having sent them at all, and keeping your money, to me was a insinuation I'm a thief and a lier. Out of nearly 500 transactions on just THIS boards market place, and all the years I've been here, you are the only one to have made such a comment to me. Your behavior is the sole reason I now get tracking on every, single, package, I mail, even to members I've dealt with for years.
You know, some times packages just go missing during transit, it happens, and not just to items I've shipped. Ask anyone on this board if shyte has just gone "missing", it happens. If I'd not deleted the last few months of PMs to clear out my inbox, I'd post them here. In fact, why don't you post your PMs? Maybe you still have them, if not, I can ask Gary if he can bring them back to my inbox.
I don't have a axe to grind, just don't like being accused of shyte I'm not guilty of, even if the accusation is veiled or insinuated.
Found one message in my outbox. I would've shipped them within 48 hours after your PP payment was transferred to my bank. Best timeline I can provide, since I wasn't shipping with tracking on small packages at that time.

Thank you,

Sure, use the friends and family to avoid the fees, and please leave the description fields blank. My PP addy is;
rtandkt at hotmail dot com
I'll need your mailing addy to address the package.
Cheers, Rich.

My procedure is to address the package once I have the buyers shipping info, then once payment is received { as in transferred to my bank or cashed }I package the item and ship the next business day. I didn't get 457 positive feed backs by being a thief.
