I imagine that many of you remember the now-long banned forum member "Klinger" who did more than a few shady deals here awhile ago. Well....he has been Back now for some time and true to form, went right back to his modus operandi of selling fake items to Forum Members. Hopefully, no one has purchased any of "Swingcat"s amazing items that he has posted here over the last several months or so, as there is no "Swingcat"-it is only our old friend "Klinger" back, once again, wearing a different face and new name. Only This particular time around, he has now scammed at least One member here out of nearly $1500. If anyone has purchased anything from him, I would strongly suggest that you have the item checked out by one of the hobby experts, as everything he has posted here and subsequently sold to this date has been proven to be Fake.
The main point being here, I imagine, is that no one should ever put total confidence in Any seller's items-even if they are a Forum member here. I saw today, with considerable dismay, for example, that even Pawel Nowak has taken the gall and posted his non-existent items here. Be Careful, People. Even if the items have been vetted here and passed-If, in the event that they Do turn out to be bad afterall-and this is Always possible, be sure that your seller is reputable and willing to refund without question. No method is bulletproof, but it being what it is, it's the best we've got for now!
