i copied this post from member douyouquaxu on ford ranger forum
just thought i should bring this to attention over here
"I'm a moderator on dezertrangers where this was first brought to my attention. There was a user selling some 3.0x16 King shocks for $1000 that normally sell for closer to $2000 used. I sent him my number to work out a way to pick them up (he supposedly lived close to where I work). I come to find out thanks to some detective work from other members that he stole the pics of the shocks from someone else' ad, and has accounts on many other forums scamming people's hard earned money.
Once his IP address got banned, I got 1500 threatening text messages from this guy, who's full name is RYAN SHEPARD. He had my full name, address, DOB, driver's license number, and threatened to destroy what little credit I have as well as send "surprise" packages to my house. My local police wouldn't do anything about it, not even take down my information and the reason I came in.
Now, another member I personally know got scammed out of $1000, as well as other people on different forums that are included in the 3 threads linked below. This POS needs to be caught, and everyone in the mean time needs to be aware of who he is.
Check out the links below, and be careful. He has multiple accounts on different forums scamming multiple different people. If a deal seems too good to be true, IT PROBABLY IS!
