He offered 530$ on my E-cocker. I'm happy with the numbers, so I ask him payment methods. We agreed to trade third-party with a proshop near him and payment would come VIA Money-order. Well, he showed me feedback from Wizards.com, and it was rougly 95% positive. The feedback he showed was for the accounts "KevinGuoNator" and "Nyphe". Well, I looked and the user "Nyphe" had "Kevinguonator" on a sticky-post labelled the scammer list. The address he gave me for the proshop matched his home address. I then IM him the following:
When he signed off, that was blocking me. I logged onto my other AIM account, KillBillGates123, and he was signed on. I ask him and he unblocks me and claims an accident. I tell him the same message and in defence he says "I decided to buy a bko, sealed and done". Well, I monitored him and he wasn't on AIM until a bit before I got back home, so he obviously isn't trading for a BKO when we had a pending trade and I was going to ship today. Obvious blatant scammer. Almost ripped me off a marker.kuRaMa l337: Hello. When you showed me yout feedback on that MTG forum, I did some backtracking. For one, you are on the scammer list. Secondly, the "proshop" address matches your home address. Third, you are not Nyphe. Now, I will only trade with you if you send a MO or cashier's check first (which is how most trades go) or pay to use a REPUTABLE third party such as Palmer's Pursuit Shop and the likes.
Auto response from Kevin Guo Nator: eating
Kevin Guo Nator signed off at 2:46:06 PM.
Here's his contact info:
Name- Kevin Guo
AIM - Kevin Guo Nator
Real Address - 12212 Summer Breeze Ct
Charlotte, NC 28277
Fake Address - Kevin Gou
4305 elm tree road
charlotte, NC 28273
My suspicion began when he knew the address of the proshop but not the name of it or the owner's name. So, I assume and have confirmed that it's his home address. DO NOT deal with Kevin Guo a any costs whatsoever. He is a scammer and apparently a repeat-offense one according to the Wizards forums. Personally, If it was my marker, I would have sent it anyways so that I could put this ******* in jail. Who cares about being out 500$ for a few months, its worth it.
I hope this helps somebody avoid being scammed.
