aka "Operation Sandy"

Well, I just had my run-in with Steve Jones...

I'm just giving a warning that he was going by "Operation Sandy" and was selling a TK army, some army books and a bunch of WWII stuff.


He didn't get me for much, but this POS is still lurking around.

Did it happen here?

If so, you need to post all of your proof in a separate thread and follow the proper procedures (contacting the FBI, USPS, etc).
You can find all of the important links in Insidius' signature.

If this guy has scammed you, don't let him get away with it. Report him to the authorities. It's the only thing that'll stop a guy like this.

PLEASE, don't just let this die.

squalie Pmed me and asked for some advice about how to go about posting it.
I gave him the usual "post your PM's" and "follow Insidius' links" advice, but I threw in a few formatting suggestions for making it an easier read.

He seemed bound and determined to do whatever he could to get his stuff back, so I expect we'll be seeing a post for him soon.

yeah, but that's not enough to go on. He has to provide proof that it was a deal, that it originated here... all the reporting guidelines from the main "Bad Trader" page.

In the PM, he confirmed to me that it did, indeed, originate here.
Now, it's just a waiting game for him to post his proof.

Just a heads-up for anybody trying to get ahold of him-he has since joined the Canadian Army. No idea which unit, though, but bets would be on the Royal Canadian Regiment.
