    Default Another scam alert!

    Do not do any business with "Rudeco". He has scammed me this week. I bought a SG3 from him, and have not received it. He claimed that his fiance "lost the tracking number". Evidently he is unaware that is interstate commerce fraud. From what I see now in his "for sale" post, he also scammed another person.
    His name is Colton Lane, and his e-mail is .
    Be careful!!

    BTW, he won't even respond to my e-mails.

    His post: Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB for Verizon, used 3 weeks.

    Seriously man? I'm sorry. I hate people like this guy. Just ripping good people off. I'll bump this up to make sure people see it.

    If I woulda known you were looking I could have sold you mine once I get my iPhone 5 in.

    Good luck man. I hope PayPal has your back.

    I wonder if you can get an administrator to trace the ip address of the posts and maybe you can figure out how to contact him, and possibly file a class action suit

    I don't think you can go after him for interstate commerce fraud. I don't think that really exists

    Man that's horrible. I am always so nervous about this. I bought my son a pair of those way over-priced headphones on ebay and just knew I was going to receive a broken pair. Turned out ok though.

    I hope you guys get your money back.

    He almost got me too but I held out for willistheyounger transfer to go through. Sorry buddy.

    Anyone who has been victim to this guy needs to file a complaint at , it's a joint task force used to combat scumbags like this guy. If enough people are scammed they will will get the fbi to go after him.

    Contact PayPal and file a dispute. Contact your bank. You can file a fraud charge with your bank. Since money is taken from your bank definitely call them

    I have done some digging on this guy his paypal email he gave me is the name was Robert Gampolo I found his address and phone number on the White Pages website and also found his Facebook page if this is really the guy then he is really fu@*ed because I will be in contact with the police up thewe in Ohio. I. have bought and traded with people on these fourms for a few years now and never thought this would happen all I wanted was a Sprint Galaxy S3.

    That guy that spammed you posts in the Optimus V forums all the time. He has an Optimus V.... all his posts (like his name says) are rude and unintelligent. I don't mean like a typical noob (that's forgivable), but he posts the same stuff three or four times after we already explained it can't be fixed.

    Been keeping an eye on this since you posted it. I was burned by this person a few months ago on Android.net. I went to his public record address on Holly Ave in Mingo Junction OH..... which was an old home address for him and in foreclosure. Tried local PD too, to no avail. Seems whoever this guy really is he uses random names off of Google or eBay because the Robert Gampolo in Mingo Junction , OH has been incarcerated for the past 4 years according to the PD. I just filed a 'unauthorized use' claim with PayPal and got all my money back. PM me guys if you need any help with this .

    That's what I would do, dispute it with PayPal or your bank and it shouldn't be a problem getting your money back

    Why did you file "unauthorized use"? Why not "item not received"?

    You can file as item not received, but unauthorized transaction will get your refund quicker.

    No refund with "gift" or "payment owed", though.
