*** Starting a new thread so previous one does not get buried ***

ATTENTION: ARC IS A REPEAT CRIMINAL SCAM ARTIST!!!

He has been using cc.com to get goods and money. He has no intention of paying.

ADVICE: NEVER DO ANY KIND OF BUSINESS OR COMMUNICATION WITH THIS CREEP! SHUT THIS A-HOLE DOWN!

NOTE: He uses real-life aliases but his real name may be JOSE CRUZ.

He may also identify himself as Joe or Joey.

He has told others he is from New York.

CC.COM INFO: Registered on 9/16/05. Member No. 9175

LOCATION: Has been listing his address as Yelm, Washington BUT HE MAY NOW BE IN OREGON

HE IS KNOWN TO HAVE RECENTLY MOVED


I have located other people in Yelm, Washington (not cc.com climbers, etc.) who have described him as "predatory." He typically presents himself as a nice, coooperative, humorous, decent person in order to work his way into someone's life, often via internet.

If any suspicion is cast on him and/or if he sets up new scam, he immediately disappears and goes to where he will be unknown. Then, he starts a new scam.

As for any reasons and/or excuses for not paying for something you may try to buy from him or sell to him, please note I have so far found out that:

*he is not married;
*he has no known children;
*he has no regular job - gets money from people by doing odd-jobs, etc;
*he was never a climbing guide;
*any family member may or may not be alive, well, ill or ... *uses this an an excuse for not paying for gear
*he has/had a cell phone
*any address listed is NOT his own or if it is, he is supported by someone else
*he disappears as soon as he gets another scam going in a community

NB: ANYONE IN WASHINGTON WHO HAS BEEN SCAMMED BY ARC SHOULD CALL LAW ENFORCEMENT. IT WILL TAKE FILING A COMPLAINT WITH YOUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY TO INITIATE A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION. (This is what I learned while getting my goods back from ARC)

ARC has been banned, however the individual may reappear as another avatar and may not be immediately recognized.

So as a buyer/trader you should be wary of sketchy characters, and defend yourself from scams as best you can.

I am locking this thread.

It does not need spray

If you have something relevant to add w.r.t. helping people who have been cheated by this person PM me, or another Mod and we will give you access to this thread.

Other avatars this individual has used:

Crampon
Divot
Icefall
Joey

If you have had sour dealings with any of these please let us know.
