Well I just talked to the sheriff's office in his hometown of Edgewood Md, and they had me contact my local authorities, so I just talked to the PA state police and I am filing a report with them. I guess that's how the system works - don't know if anything will become of it yet.

I have been scammed by this guy as well sent him the money and have not received anything and also sent pm to him with no response.
If you look at his feedback under 400 flyer its good I even saw that a friend of mine had dealt with him so I thought it was all good.
Come to find out hes just a 40yr old scumbag that lives at home with his mommy Gertrude. She must be proud.
Scott Nichols pay up loser get a job like the rest of us and stop scamming people.
Appropriate feedback left as well under his new rr name.

Just talked to the PA State Police. They took down all the info. The first thing they said to do was file and online complaint on one or both of these websites:

Maybe someone from a local heli club could help out? Edgewood is less than 1/2 hour from Baltimore.

Can't squeeze oil from a water spout. The guy probably doesn't have the money anymore. He may be like others with less than stellar reputations that get good feedback when times are ok, only to resort to dishonesty and thievery when times are tough. Unfortunatly, I've seen this with drug addicts in the past.

High Voltage just works better

Do we have a "good guy" and "not so good guy" list on this site yet? Seems like this is one of those guys who should be on the "not so good" list.

Funny thing about online scams - the local Police don't bother.
They look at you and say "You got scammed for $200 bucks? Too bad. Come back when it is $2,000, or $20,000".

The FBI doesn't touch anything that is less than 6-figures - and 100's if not 1000's of people.

These scamers count on that.

The problem with scammers here on RR is once they do their deeds, they close their account and create a new name. Looks like this is what this fella did, as his new name is 400flyer. In addition, he just scammed again with his new name.

Well, I just turned him in to both the office of the Inspector General for the post office and the Internet Crime Complaint Center, using the online forms that I posted previously in this thread.

Noting the comment above from ticedoff8, I don't know if anything will be done to him since this is small potatoes, but at least it made me feel better that I was striking back with what limited tools I have.

Maybe if you other guys that have had problems with this guy take a few minutes and do the same, the multiple complaints will get noticed and action might be taken?

I tried to at the time but was told "Too bad" by the Post office.
Funny thing is a 3rd party got involved with it and presto a RF G3
sim showed up about 2 weeks later.. But that was after multiple weeks..

I also bought a gyro from 400flyer last Thursday, he confirmed receiving the funds right after and no communication since. I emailed him twice over the weekend and saw that he read one and ignoring the other.

I confirmed with the another RR member that PM'ed 400flyer Sunday on an items he has listed that he had replied to him. Selective communication to hook another fish.

I've bought and sold here on RR and never had a problem til now. 400flyer gives pauses to everyone buying on RR but that shouldn't be the case, there are more honest folks than a few bad apple.

400flyer do the right thing and send out the items!!!!

if you have his address, send him something in the mail which will make him think about cleaning up his act.
