I hope they throw the book at the scumbag and make him payback every cent. I hope he does some time and has a hard time hanging on to the soap! :o

I hope they lock him up and throw away the key. Unfortunately there seems to be 2 replacements for everyone you get off the street.

Craigslist is so full of people like that. I wished they caught more of them.

Thanks HALFSCALE for the update.
I have a hard time figuring out why it took so long for law enforcement to move on this guy. We have been reading about him for over two years online and in magazines.

Publicly put this dope on display, in a stockade and let people throw tomatos and eggs at him! And make it clear! You get caught your mext!

Now on another note: I have seem this dopes adds, and thought instantly it was too good to be true! Asked him a few valid questions and came instantly to my senses when he said it was in a shipping container...... Yeah .... Sure ... Then he gave up and disapeared.
The public is very gullible , and these kind pray on them, making the rest too weiry to trust anyone... Very sad ...

I wonder if it's the same guy that has been listing stuff here on Kijiji. Glad they caught the guy. I once replied to one of his ads and he claimed to be a US soldier on leave from Afghanistan. Pretty low IMO. I hope he goes down hard.

I am glad to hear they finally caught the guy. It would be nice if they lock him away for a long time, there will be others to take his place so just because they caught this one there are other a$$holes scumbags out there.

An eye for an eye, or in this case a hand for a hand for stealing from others. Better yet, find a tall oak tree and solve all his problems. Might be a little extreme but it'll definately make an example of him.

I'm not sure on that, this guy was pulling the " i have the rare parts and tractors you need ,really cheap thing". There is an article in this issue of antique truck. He was pulling this crap on their wanted adds long before he got to the tractor guys. Everone figured it was the same scammer because it always led back to the south western corner of Pa.
