Here are the names he has gone by:

Mike terry
ronnie wylie
travis dodson

One in bold is the name he gave me, Mike and Ronnie were giving to other users.

The Mike Terry one was the most recent scam: I can link you to the topic but here is a quick little whats going on.

Thekraka was trading me a xbox 360 and iPod touch for cash and a epic. I shipped out by USPS, I shipped at 3:30 requested it to have a one day delay. I knew something wasn't adding up with this kid. Always texting, never talking over the phone. Always avoiding me; I was having my doubts. I shipped by USPS. He sent me a tracking number 8:34 that night! 3 days later I receive a package with bricks in it. I went to the USPS store put a stop / return package.

Now Thekraka sold his xbox 360 to a user on the forum when in fact he told me he couldn't sell me the xbox 360 because he lost his job. Now he's told the last two members on the forum he's 19 and works for starbucks as a asst manager.
He told me he's 20 and didn't have a job!

He also stated he had to sell the xbox 360 for cash because he needs cash and he was going to sell it locally. Now he's buying a epic and just sold my xbox 360 / iPod touch.

Now here he stated he couldn't sell the xbox 360:
http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=304237
" for god sake i lost my job and cant trade my xboxes...I AM SELLING THEM to people in town so i can have money ....i already owe HKAud some cash "

Now here is where he's selling the xbox 360, that very xbox360 that he couldn't sell and is selling now. Those very same parts he was looking to buy is what I had shipped to him.

http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=302707
" WTT XBOX 360/Itouch

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

taking trades for 12''+subs and headunits...an epic-150 or epic-160 is an insta trade =/...also wanting a batt "

Now look at that! He's sure scammed my self, king ranch, and xpanterax.

All of us live in Florida, we all live about 6 or so hours away.

King received a amp from Karka but it was broke. Xpanterax just shipped a battery and a amp for this xbox 360 which is really mine since I bought it back a week 1/2 ago. He'll be scammed just like I was scammed.:verymad:

IP BAN HIM!! VIEW HIS IP TO SEE WHAT OTHER ACCOUNTS HE HAS ON HERE!!!





Here is proof:

This is one of his lies he has, why are you buying and selling items if you can't pay for shipping.

Up close of the red brick from the scammer.

Now this is Travis Dodson at his best... No one do sales with this guy!

This guy has many more bricks in his back yard, would you like a set of his bricks too? You will get some if you do any sales with him!

Many forums do have a system, It's called Itrader :fyi:

With all the scamming and transactions on here I find it absurd, inappropriate, and ridiculous we do not have Itrader.

king ranch
04-11-2008, 12:33 AM
he had it very nicely wrapped up around a huge bed sheet and clothes all around it and clothes folded up for about 5inch layer aound the whole box plus the amp was cntered in the middle and the remote wire and speaker input piece was broke when i got it so i have to order a new piece and get someone to fix it the terminals broke off in the board so its useless right now and i am pizzed about this

i am pretty sure it was broke upon sending dont see how good it was packed would get broke during shipment

I agree, but most of the scamming is happening from newer members buying from people who just signed up with no refs.

Alot of us recognise each other from our posts, and have the common sense to know who to deal with.

Very true, that would be the safest way to trade/sell/buy on here, but as you said, no it's not very pratical when person A is in Cali, and person B in in Florida.

But I do agree with you that we need something like iTrader on here

Randy Savage

He's been banned, and his Classified threads have been closed (not deleted).

He is on a dynamic IP, so an IP ban won't do much.

king ranch
04-11-2008, 12:50 AM
well i wasnt begging him to send the amp i was mad that he said he was shipping the amp but yet posted it for sale so he was trying to scam someone either me or someone who wanted to buy the amp

I sent out A subwoofer in part of a 1 for 1 and 1 for 1 trade. I don't know for a fact yet that Im being scammed. I have a UPS number for a few items that he sent out today. I don;t want to get into many details because of the nature of this website and who is reading it. Im just in a potential bad spot. Either way my action if any taken will be drastic.

King Ranch,

You should determine who was scammed the worst by this guy and give him the amp. I know it's broken but, hey, it's something. OR, you could sell it and split the proceeds among everyone that got scammed by him.

LOL she will eat your leg..First off why would you even consider buying off someone you know nothing about? Not even like you are going through ebay where they can track it down. You are dealing on a forum. Follow your gut if it seems shady, my odds are that it is shady!

i dont think anyone accualy got scammed but it may have been a good try on his part since he shipped some bricks...........BUT...when i was new to the forums i posted an amp for sale at termpro....i had my number in the add and someone gave me a call and wanted to trade me a amp that was worth like 1000+ dollars more than mine even....man i wanted that amp bad but i just knew it was a scam .....but he had pics with his username an date and sounded legit but it seemed to good to be true....but i had to find out lol...he said we had to ship at the same time....i figured i get a brick or a broken amp....but i still had to find out lol.....so i packed up a big bag of dirt and shipped that and set back and waited on my bricks lol.....well the package finally got there and i opend it up and it was the amp in the pics....but i still figured it would be broke...i took it to a local shop and told them to test it...i stood there and watched as they did and the guy could get no sound from it....well i was disapointed but i thought what the hell ill go try it myself just to make sure....i hooked it up in my friends car and while hooking it up i noticed this amp had 2 remote slots...the tech at the shop was only using 1 lol...i hooked up both remotes and it sounded danm good...i was like man i bet that guys pissed..he called me that night and i explained to him why i did what i did and he was still mad at first but i calmed him down and sent his amp out the next day and we were both happy lol.................

Your right sir. I don't think anyone got scammed in this specific case either after reading more in detail. Although I do say we enact rules to combat things like this. A large majority of these scam cases take place with users with low post counts and haven't been here long.

I'm going to start a proposition in the Lounge right now to law down some guidelines for selling.

I think a minimum of 150-200 posts (that way you could research a sellers posts and feel them out based on how they ask questions, post dumb ****, or are serious person if they have little or no refs). This would atleast give the the consumer more ammunition before buying something from a questionable individual.
