Beware of anything listed using this guys phone number/location. Appears to be a scam. Paid for the Atlas and then he proceeded to text me saying it was shipped, but now won't provide a tracking number.
/forum/engines-trannys-t-cases-sale/1054424-atlas-3-8-1-1150-shipped.html
Here are the other username listings using the same phone number but different details about him. (phone number to watch out for is 916-425-5313)
/forum/axles-tires-wheels-sale/1054165-44-inch-boggers-brand-new-1200-a.html
/forum/axles-tires-wheels-sale/1053644-88-dana-60-out-f350-850-ships-us-48-a.html
I had searched for the phone number before I paid him and nothing had come up in google. Now these other listings are coming up, there may be more, but don't want anyone else to get scammed by this guy. Working now on getting my money back

I am glad you are doing this, Pirate should be able to tell if he is using the same ip address, and what other accounts he may have here also. By the way did he tell you what his name was? On Pay Pal it said his name was Cameron Owens, he refunded me everything but 17 dollars, so I do not have any Idea what he is up to. He was still trying to get people to send money though.

I thought all those deals looked too good to be true. I hope everyone gets their money back.

Jbrown is back...... I am willing bet. This guy took members a while back. No one seemed that upset. He needs to get it.

My guess is that he is using multiple Paypal accounts that aren't linked to banks so that there is no way for Paypal to get the money back from him once he empties them out. Paypal will give you an account, but limits it to $2000 per month just like a student account.

A Cameron Ross Owens had some marijuana possessions, driving under the influence, and a possession of stolen property in the 2000-2002 time frame in Sacramento County.

Google search pulls up a Cameron R. Owens at 4805 Etna, Carmichael, CA 95608 (916) 536-0335
Carmichael is really where 5656 Vega Ct is and about 2 miles away.

Be careful posting up addresses/phone numbers until you're certain it's the same person. Misinformation could get the thread axed.

I'm pretty sure that this guy is way too smart to use his real name for anything. Hopefully we can get him shut down so he can't get anyone else

I tried calling that number, It has been disconnected. I want to know if this guys is using these names as fraud, or if he is really dumb enough to use his name, or a friends name.

$1150 for an Atlas? First post?

As soon as I saw the price I just moved on.

Hope it all works out.

True, But I have also got amazing deals on here before, on axles, links and other stuff. I have never been scammed before, but what do you do? never trust people again. I have sold things for really cheap in the past, and people got really good deals, I always sell things cheap just to make quick sales, so I was hoping a good deal might come back around.

That's how I got my coilovers off here. Low post count, and price too good to be true. (6 12" coilovers with springs for $200 something shipped) That turned out pretty good. I guess you win some/you lose some. I've got a claim in for it and just waiting for a callback.

He wanted me to wire him money to Walmart. So, didn't have to have ID in that name to get it?

This is why he wanted us to wire him money, I have never heard of green dot transfer, so I looked it up, from there website,.

Donít give your MoneyPak number to pay for something you buy through the classifieds or to collect a prize or sweepstakes. If you give your MoneyPak number to a criminal, Green Dot is not responsible to pay you back. Your MoneyPak is not a bank account. The funds are not insured against loss.

,He told me he would have to show two forms of Id to pick up the money, which sounds false. This is the reason I would only do Pay Pal, atleast Pay pal is safer.

The thing is, this guy is obviously from Sacramento, his number was from there, every where he claimed to work on his profiles were from there, someone from there has to know this guy, he knows about 4x4s. I have called on boats before and had a guy from nigeria tell me the boat was in storage and he could not get it out or explain anything about it. I spoke with this guy and he knew what he is talking about.

just playing armchair detective here, but did jeff (brownj) possibly steal a phone to scam some more people here and the phone finally got shut off? he definitely knows what to put in an ad description to get a quick sale. this is a lot like the last shit he pulled here. no offense to any new members here, but i cant trust anyone who hasn't invested some time here to build a reputation.

I might have the facebook page for the registered owner of the 916-425-5313. I'll PM it to someone if they want to check with her if it's her number and if it's a stolen/lost phone.

Edit: for the people that talked to him directly, did he sound like early-mid 20's juggalo?

Edit x2:
The Dana 60 picture that he posted was from this build thread.
http://www.fullsizechevy.com/forum/g...c-etc-etc.html
Definitely a scam since that axle has had a lot done to it since the picture was taken.



Quote:
HP Dana 60 from an 88' Ford F350 purchased from a guy in Portage, Indiana. Shipping was a killer but was the only one I could find that was in my price range. Though I did end up buying another one from a 78' F250 with the narrower spring perches (to be explained later).

Not again.

Sorry, but people need to be more careful about transferring money to new members with deals to good to be true, they usually are.

Any chance this is the fuck face selling air shocks for dirt cheap on other offroad forums a few months back finally moving onto pirate>?
