Default WARNING!!!! WARNING!!!! Avoid user Stionrye at ALL cost!!!! SCAMMER!!!!!

Mods please dont delete as already myself and one member have been hit by this user in the last month and I personally stopped possible transactions where he could have taken advantage of other people... Hear me out:


ATTENTION ALL BUYERS/SELLERS/SEARCHERS:

This is an announcement letting you, the valued patrons in these B/S/T sections are in danger of having your money stolen (and possibly gear)! Below are the details pertaining to my incident but another member today came to the conclusion that he is getting ripped off. The person doing this right now under our noses is Stionrye. He could quite possibly change his screen name if he doesnt receive an IP perm ban but be on the lookout using his tactics listed here as reference.

My story:

Short and sweet. Posted a WTB thread for intercoolers. He sent me a PM and we talked about the deal. I paid moneygram because he sounded like a straightup guy. Told me he had family in the military. Told me he had family that are police officers (these things are relate to me specifically) so he can build the trust in the deal. I sent the moneygram and boom money gone. Reported it to IC3 and will be calling the feds here soon.

made this thread: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2435322

Now another person came forward and asked me about him and I gave his dad all the info he needed to bash this guy over the phone. They havent heard from him since but they reported it to IC3 as well.

Today another thread popped up claiming he too is being scammed from Stionrye: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2438669

He will be reporting it to IC3 and now there are three valid complaints within less than a month. Thats enough to get the ball rolling.




Look. Do not use ANY method of payment other than PayPal and use goods and services. You can make a claim if something goes wrong and you get your money back. We cant... dont give us **** or harass us we already know we goofed. Dont say "red flag this" "giant red flag that..." ... yeah WE KNOW!

Keep in mind that he is prying on the WTB threads with cheap gear. He keeps his price competitive at first and then will drop the price really low. Then you will talk about everything, pictures, and you get a request for money gram. The deal is usually good so why not (in my case I trusted the guy).

If its too good to be true: request more pictures. request a hand written paper with your SN, his SN, the date/time, whatever else you want and have it in the picture with the parts. This way you know the picture is legit and tha parts are in their possession (well to an extent).

There are many uesful tools. But USE PAYPAL and GOOD/SERVICES not gift.





If anyone knows who this guy is, where he lives, or has been victimized as well... please come forward in here or via PM. Everything will remain confidential if you want to remain anonymous. Thanks for reading and be safe out there.

Corey

He will use that cheap gear to get you to use moneygram. No matter what screen name he will be under; use that as an identifier. If you come across this guy or someone using these tactics PM me the details ASAP!

Yes, this is old scamming trick: dirt cheap deal for high quality parts.
NEVER NEVER USE MONEYGRAM, WESTERN UNION OR ..... there is a new scammer's method, BE AWARE: GREEN DOT MONEY PACK. Most of you have never heard about that. When you do, DON'T DO THAT !
Any electronic method of payment such Paypal or credit card over the phone / online is safe as long as the place/business can be verified.
i understand if you are trying to rip off bank or other financial institution since they rip us off every day, but NEVER people who work hard for their $.
If you need my help in catching him and do what shall be done , lmk. I'm ready and I will use methods most of you would not.

I really hope you guys get your money back and that the fleas from a thousand camels infest this scammers armpits but be careful in what subtle threats you post on this PUBLIC website. This scammer probably is going to get what he deserves but you do not want to end up on the short list for the pigs (aka Police) if something happens to scammie. I am only trying to offer friendly advise. I am surprised the Moderators who are very busy working here to help us all for free did not give you a heads up. You got a friend in Pennsylvania.

Someone did this in another forum I frequent. He's not even a moderator but he figured out the scammers originating IP, address, and some other info. It was pretty cool and I am trying to get in touch with him for this.

To report scammers

GO TO your ORIGINAL THREAD

REPORT THE THREAD TO THE MODERATORS

with all of the pertinent information

Mods will move the thread into scammer central where you all can post your feedback

This is not the correct venue for this type of thread.

This is the Wanted Classifieds.

Thank you.
