$12,345.00 USD
Buyer pays shipping
For Sale
SCAM ALERT!!!!

SCAM ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Watch out for someone identifying themselves as Louis Jones. E-mail address he uses is:


[email protected]


Pay Pal account he uses is:


[email protected]


Paid him $73.64 twice, after he insisted the first Pay Pal didn't come thru. He also insisted on using "Family & Friends" payment. Heads-up that when you use this feature, you have no recourse for help thru Pay Pal. Needless to say repeated e-mails asking for either the product or a refund have gone unanswered.


This scammer was recommended to me by:
"Jacobban" who's account is now suspended, go figure!

Sorry to hear you got scammed. I had a similar situation from the same person
Jacobban.

He responded to my wanted ads and his friend had exactly what I was looking for Twice!
I checked his trader rating and join date, I did not respond to either.

Little strange that this friend had exactly what I was looking for in my wanted ad.

Thanks for letting everyone know about this Yahoo!

That's a shame ....wish we had some kind of list we could put scammer names on. I heard That jacobban user name was a Scammer a few months ago...but of course they can always just change names. It's been said over and over on here not to use F and F but guys keep doing it.

Never send PayPal as friends and family when purchasing an item. I just pay the fees to be protected.

Exactly. Also check into the Trader Talk forum. There's many of these scammers that are called out in that very forum. That screen name "Jacobban" came up a few months back in Trader Talk.

It's very unfortunate we have to deal with this crap, but there are a few ways to search into potential sellers(and even buyers).

Be safe my fellow pilots.

Why would you not check your Paypal account before resending payment? Summary would show what has or has not gone through. Lesson hopefully learned. Sadly more and more scammers are infultrating this hobby made up of really good people.

Many people have no shame, no morals or integrity. I know too many people in this hobby to snow someone over.

This is why I posted what I did about the attempted scam this same person tried to get me with. Unfortunately, he got my friend for 50 bucks. He used a different screen name and his friend had a different email. But I would bet every Franklin in my pocket it is the same ass wipe. We must ask ourselves, why is it that there is one person responding to our "WANTED" listings and "HIS" friend has exactly what we are looking for? I really think this fool is going to get caught eventually. I sure would not want to be him when that happens.

Everyone.... please, for your monies safety and for the sake of everyone else.... call these bastards out. And for pete's sake, if they have a 0 rating and just joined like yesterday... get more information before you agree to send money. And never, ever..."NEVER" send money friend and family. Unless of course you know the people or someone can vouch for them. I understand that there are many members here that have not posted much. They just read and look around. They probably don't do many deals here. And if they are legit, they will not mind us asking a few questions for verification purposes. I would in a heart beat send money to people that I know or have dealt with or have some form of verification friends and family. Just investigate and do your home work. And lastly, if a deal is too good to be true.... (3w 150ir2 new and unused for 500 bucks) it probably is a scam.

It's not a good deal, I've been taken for $400.00 and no help with paypal, because I drop the claim before I received the box, I file the claim to get him to ship the jet, once I got a tracking number, I drop the claim, big mistake, when I received my jet, he taken the retracts and hardware kit out of the box, called paypal, no help at all ?????, sorry about your deal.
