We have successfully linked the following accounts together as being the same person (Rick Dunn):
Gen.Patton (Ref Score 6 -No negatives)
Patton (Ref Score -2 -Negative for scamming)
Patton1942 (Ref Score 36 -Negative for scamming)
Patton has received negative references for scamming on TWO of the THREE of these ID's.
Additionally, if you search for Rick by name, you'll find a grand total of FOUR negatives.. all for scamming.
Granted, one looks like it may have been left by the same person, but under a different User ID (and we're looking into that)... but I think 3 is enough, anyway.
While we were looking into Rick, he spoke with another member of site staff. Rick stated that only Patton1942 was him and that he never had any other ID.
Later, I received a PM from him.

Does he think I'm an idiot?
THERE ARE REFERENCES FOR "PATTON" WITH *RICK'S NAME ON THEM*.
Seriously, people. We're not stupid here! We *do* communicate. At least keep your lies consistent.
I even asked him if there were any more I should be aware of while I was "cleaning up the database."
He had no idea that I was already onto him. At this point, I was just letting him dig his own grave a bit deeper.
A bit more searching (a collaborative effort between myself and the ever-impressive imp522) discovered more information on him (the following actually happened PRIOR to his emails above):Patton1942 wrote:Hi yes Sir that's the only one.
That's a TMP ad by Viper911:
Hi I looking for some BTD Dwarf please let me know if you have some you can also email me at rjdunn62 at hotmail dot com
I decided to check patton1942's post history to see if I could tie it to Viper911's post on TMP.
Now, look here:

Hi All looking for BTD Dwarfs box set. please let me know what you have and price.
The ads match.
That's no biggie.
The big deal is that the email address he gave on TMP matches the email on the "Patton" ID that he claimed (at the time) wasn't him. You know... the one with negative references?
So, the Patton email matches the Viper911 email and the Viper911 post matches the patton1942 post.
