    InfernoGT also known as "Trooperstang" and several other names is a pure piece of scat scammer ! He goes by "Arthur Dante" [email protected]. He took me over for 1500 in the sn95 classifieds for a vortech s trim and then tried scamming other members !! Also On NMRADIGITAL he scammed sveral members too! Anyone with some info on this slimeball fill me in

    Yes, I paid with paypal but he used a fake email and paypal account that he seems to have closed right after he scammed me. I'm not a big believer of paypal doing the right thing so i'm hoping so one can help me out with more information and more importantly making sure his scamming spree is over !

    I thought the same thing Nic, the guy that posts regularly in the wheel has a similar name but "Inferno GT" only has 6 posts and joined in july 2010. looks like he posted a few tech answers though which is odd for someone who just intends to rip people off :shrug:

    InfernoGT hasn't logged in since he scammed me, but using his other name he IS logging in and he IS watching these threads. he is also active on the corral and nmradigital I PM'd him with the damning evidence linking his two usernames and he promptly blocked me. I also found his ebay account which he also scammed with . This guy is trash

    Proxy perhaps, but the 2 users mentioned do not share the same IP

    I figured that. I tracked him down and confronted him and he kept throwing the "I'm a state cop" line thinking I'll back down. Most likley thats why he was smart enough to use a proxy and hide his tail so much. Another member has been scammed to and is on crusade with me now.

    Yup, came close to buying this blower. Before I did though, I emailed his email address and got in contact with a good guy from another forum.

    Busted. I hate scammers. Were supposed to be a club.

    We found the name when he slipped up and used the scammer email under his other username "Trooperstang" he also gave his cell number out under that username. That led to finding his real email that he used to register his other account with. That led to his name and address. Or maybe Lash has a crystal ball haha, he may. he somehow found his parents address for me as well. I've given the email and phone number over to a fellow member who was scammed

    There are no other usernames on stangnet that are associated with the username trooperstang.

    machuginah and inferno gt both match.
