    Funny. Here on VU he claims to be age 19. His eBay account says member since 2007...

    Is someone being schookered into selling his stuff for him? Or did he lie about his age here? Both?

    He also has a red REO grand LP with black door and Lowpro atty up for 100 bucks on the eBay account. Door looks okay though.

    ECF has closed all of his classified postings btw

    He's 19, I have verified that myself. His parents may of setup an account for him years ago, however that picture of the reo is the same her sent me. It doesn't really show the paint missing or the other issues on the back side. Low pro last I knew was sold....

    Oh that is too funny, I just sent him a message on that ebay item from my account saying that "there still was only 11 batteries in the picture just like on VU"

    LMFAO

    The name that shows up on PayPal for him is Jorge J*******, but he's Jacob9083 on eBay...... strange.

    Yup and the most sickening thing about it I just realized the email he used for his paypal is a play on spelling.. It literally says "goodbye" spelled wrong.

    Funny he describes the mod on ebay as follows:

    "barely used....almost perfect condition"

    Also, I'm pretty sure that one is a Grand that has been milled down to a LP as opposed to one that started off as one. That isn't necessarily a bad thing but the earlier Grands did not have sub ohm contacts or the adjustable 510. It's just better to be as forthcoming as possible imo and in looking at the pics and descriptions he provided, he wasn't doing that.

    My confusion here is that fckaugust8th was the one that was posting all the shady stuff. Why does everyone think that golfer dude is the same person as that? I'm not saying they aren't, we have no way of knowing, really. I'm just curious.

    If they aren't, then a guy with good feedback is being thrown into a pit.

    So while I was looking for mods yesterday, I noticed items in pictures (i.e) things on a desk or floor that were in floridas pics. And than right after someone said Fckaugust used there pic. Than I started really digging, florida and august had a pic in common, and I tagged florida. He than immediately PM'd me and asked me if I new anything about august and blah blah. I told him dude I can see different pics from you 2 with the same stuff on the floor. It's you. Immediately pics started disappearing. Thats when I think he logged into the florida account and didnt turn off the VPN, and messed up the system..

    Yeah, I just used your post to add some additional information regarding that REO ... didn't mean it to sound like you didn't already know.

    Glad you got your stuff back!

    That's what confuses me with all this, he was the one that first suggested swapping items back.

    Unfortunately I think that originally Floridagolferguy was doing tidy business with people, but greed took over and he thought he could play both sides.

    My guess is that he decided to keep the one account clean and scam off the other ... just speculation of course

    This is enough to give me a headache. I'm not gonna see the Griffin 25 I bought from a scammer, but I think I'll go out to the mailbox and get my new Crius Plus - I know that's out there. Lol!

    i just dont get it
    if they are the same person
    i did a trade with floridagolferboi that went almost fine. nothing to make me sweat just annoyed. he shipped 1st class after saying he would ship priority. i shipped priority as we agreed. the merlin he sent me was fine-ish, had an old coil in it and like a few drops of juice.

    now i had kinda decided to not do any more deals with him cuz i wasnt fully happy with him. but we all arent perfect, and i wasnt going to call him out publically for a something this minor

    but had I known fckaugust8th is the same person, I would have had second thoughts

    all i did was see he had at least 1 postove feedback and no negative feedback and figured he was ok to deal with

    oh well lesson learned
    hopefully i get my shit
    i see no reason why i wouldnt if they are the same person, which it seems like they are

    And that's something I'll never understand. When you're paying with PP, it's your money, nothing to any entity as to how you spend it. You can use PP to pay for weapons, but they get their policy panties in a knot over vape gear?

    Best not to do business with people who have not been members here for at least a year.

    I noticed he joined recently and immediately began selling shit.

    Old friend of mine used to do similar. We all played volleyball together, one person paid the league fees, then collected from everyone. I once got a check that said "nookie and booze" in the memo line.
