Hello fellow collectors, beware of this fraud, he steals money and makes custom prototypes and sells them as genuine.
His name and adress:

EBAYuserID: BEETLEBUGSANDTHINGS

PERSONAL INFO DELETED

I closed a deal with him, concerning a prototype
vintage Yakface, The "proto" yakface had been discussed on www.toysrgus.com (http://www.toysrgus.com) Prototype Forum :
http://pub23.ezboard.com/fswcacollectorconnectionfrm4.showMessage?topicID=7 0.topic

It looked auchentic and all the big prototype collectors it seemed auchentic also, so I contacted the guy and we agreed on a price(300USD + 20USD for express shipping)
Communications went well, until I
sent the money on a check. He cashed the check
and suddenly he stopped responding my emails, after
sending several emails (1 month)I told him I would have to send
out badtrader alerts and get my money back through
legal matters, then suddenly he responded, but still
didnt answer my questions, for instance I wanted a ID
number for the package, but he couldnt provide it, I
wanted a date for when he had sent the package he
couldnt provide it. All this told me that if he
couldnt document he had sent it he probaly hadent sent
it. After some time rumors about this guy started
coming out amonst the collecting community about this
guy that he had made fake prototypes
example: http://pub23.ezboard.com/fswcacollectorconnectionfrm4.showMessage?topicID=8 7.topic

before and tried
to sell them to some of the heavy collectors in the SW
community, but he was exposed just around when I got
suspicious about him. He also offered me back ground
info on history of the proto yakface, but have never
emailed it.
now over 2 months has gone by and Ive asked him for a refund and his custom figure havent surfaced yet.

I would stay very clear of this guy.
