I was flabbergasted by this thread before, now I am gobsmacked. I cannot believe there are people here defending 'Jeremy' and suggesting he be given one more chance.
Do a search in this forum for Karkass. Here is just some of what you'll get:http://notebookforums.com/showthread...hlight=karkasshttp://notebookforums.com/showthread...hlight=karkasshttp://notebookforums.com/showthread...hlight=karkasshttp://notebookforums.com/showthread...hlight=karkass
In all of them, apart from the name changes, you'll get the same MO. For the not so bright, that means modus operandi. For those who are still listening to 'Jeremy Karkass etc' and feeling sorry for him, let me spell it out.
He will make a buy or a trade. He will take your computer or your money. After a while you will notice you have no computer or no money. You will confront him over the Net. Many people will come to your defence. It will be long and drawn out. He will select a sympathetic soul and arrange a cash refund/computer return. Nothing will arrive. He will spin a story about a bad time in his life. You will cut him some slack or be stand up so something does arrive. He will promise never to do it again.
Sound familiar. Check the Anandtech links as well. He's been doing this for years. Same MO.
The louder and more prominent complainers kind of get their money/goods back. So I used to wonder why he bothers. But of course you are the noisy tip of a scammy iceberg. Assuming you get anything back. How many others has he ripped off who don't know about Notebook Forums, Anandtech, Heatware etc.
You threatened legal action four weeks ago and didn't do anything. He read those posts and thinks you're bluffing. He thinks you are a pussy and he is laughing at you. Right now, he is reading this post and laughing at you. He is showing the whole thread to his friends and laughing at you.
'Those suckers are giving me another chance!' he is saying as he spends your moneyy on pimply hookers and bad drugs.
Do something. Sue him. Fly down to Texas and smack him in the face. Pay someone to do the same. Get one of the clever people here to make his life a misery, like this:http://notebookforums.com/showthread...ight=Australia
But do something.
Otherwise he's right.
