    Been Trolled By?: theshoe, SHOE, Cripy, Retali8? etc etc READ HERE!

    I am in the middle of putting together both a federal and civil case agasint John Arbe aka theshoe. If you have been burned by this **** you need to PM me or chat with me about information I can use to contact you and give to the police.

    This isnt another kind of sham and whatnot. The mods can verify that what I am doing is sanctioned by trollhunters.

    So please, anyone of you who have been burned I need your help now.

    You are in the wrong forum. You want to be in the Bad Traders forum.

    To get there, you first need to contact one of the Trading moderators. Just go to the top of that forum and click on their names and PM them about it. They will help you out with this.

    I'll close this now so that there are fewer responses to remove when we move it over to Bad Traders.

    Edit: moved to Bad Traders and re-opened per Pops.

    He runs several schemes to defraud people by using his "connections" thru his company called Elitelan. He stalls and lies and all sorts of garbage. Eventually it took a cop to make him realize the err of his ways:

    Officer Thomas went to his house today and put the fear of god back into his heart. If you have been scammed call his home phone number here:

    954-474-1963

    In addition to his mother's cell phone here:

    954-543-6707

    I was told that they will be making restitution to those who have been victimized by this troll.

    First, a few of his small deals ($100<) have been settled by either constant harassment or PayPal dispute.
    The bulk of his $5K+ stem from fradulently aquiring "Certified Intel Reseller" documentation...offering some good deals on purchases through him and not coming up with any hardware or refunds. Either lieing as to items having shipped, stalling as to items enroute (with no substantiating tracking etc) or out-and-out ignoring communications from those whose payments he'd accepted.

    To date...a bit better than half of those taken have gotten full refunds. Not known about all due to the fact that there are some who never report back letting anyone know and those who sit on thier cans and do nothing
