    Ok guys new member here.

    Since I remember how leathal mac guys are with scammers I wanted to ask for help.

    I, along with many members have been actively busting this ebay scammer for a few months now, but the FBI, EBAY, and a few other places DO NOT HELP.

    Read this thread http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=3398410#post3398410 to catch up on whats going on.

    Any helpful info on how to bust this guy is appreciated. Or if you would please cut and copy this post to somewhere that you think they would know what to do I would love that!!! :confused: :mad:

    If the email address in his auctions is his, as-in his own personal AOL account, can't we just sign him up for every porn/viagra/mortgage/insurance/degree/whatever spam email ever? Also surely that's enough info to bust him. Do the FBI do anything over there, we're getting one soon so I'd like to know.

    I'll put it here to see if any spam bots get it;

    Good luck! I saw the thread is 20 pages and I'm sorry, but that's a bit much to catch up on.

    Hopefully, you guys will decimate this scam-bag.
