Angry Joy stolen: David Harris, Greensboro, NC

I have not received my kits or my refund from this guy. Bought some kits from him over on ARC early in July but have gotten nothing. Until I get my kits or refund, he goes up on the bad guys list.

aka: brandonsdad1 on ARC

Same here. David Harris (aka brandonsdad1) of Greensboro NC promised to ship items after repeated enquiries. He said he would follow up with the postal service but to no avail. He promised to refund money to people in the waiting. Until now....nada.
beware of this guy.

Default Had some problems with a guy with the same last name

OK, sounds like a dead beat I dealt with several years ago. Fucker started my totally sealed kit then sent it back once I threatened him. Took me six months to finally get things sorted out. His name was Lynn Harris of Greensboro NC..... ALSO goes by the name VF101guy on ARC.

He also blocked me once he got the last word in...... FUCKING coward hasn't come forward since. Seems he has a new agenda. Been Following his moves over the past few years and I have been trying to warn people.

I have contacted the USPS but since I don't live in country I am SOL. Hope someone near this fucker breaks his knees. Don't want him dead, just fucked for life!!!! Sorry little rant......back to normal life.

Geez, if this is the same fella with a different name, I won't be seeing my refund anytime soon. Crap.

Thanks.

This guy IS Lynn Harris.

Your best bet is to contact the Greensboro NC Police Dept and file a report.

Also was scammed by Lynn Harris. Mastered a bunch of F-14 AM parts that he was supposed to cast and sent money. Never got casts or masters back...

Yeah, the only time I was ever taken was by this bottom feeder. Got my cash and never made good on an EA-6B. Total asshole.

No shit on this one either. I remember him telling me that the masters you had sent got damaged in the mail and then was offering to send them back or something, but never did.

I feel like an ass for even referring you to him, but I didn't know what he was up to back then.

What really pissed me off was when he ripped off VF-101 for about $300-$400 in squadron gear. Their XO called me at work to try and find him since they had faxed me the price list to our DSN line here in the office. What had happened was, Lynn called and placed an order with their coffee mess O, and told them he sent them a check. Hence 101 shipped out what he wanted. After about 2 weeks, he calls them and says he never got the stuff, so the JO who was running the coffee mess, sent him off another batch of goods.

Lynn then calls me and says he never got his stuff, so I call the squadron and talk with the coffee mess Officer, and he says they never got the check, but that they've now shipped stuff to Lynn 3 times, and he owes them money. They turned it over to the XO (who I think turned it over to the feds), and he was trying to handle it. Lynn was using my office line as a POC, and I quickly corrected that.

When 101's XO called me, I gave him Lynn's full name, address, and telephone number. I even had his address in California that he was using because at the time, he was bouncing back and forth between NC and CA.

Needless to say, he's a crook. I've been checking several RC and computer gaming sites that he frequently visits, and on one site that is an "Air Wolf" fan site, he owes several members close to about $1500.

I can't seem to find the other sites this jerk has been ripping people off from. I've tried Google but it only gave me some sites. I'm compiling a list of every site this thief has been on and any aliases he has used. I've already reported him to the US Postal Inspector, Greensboro, NC Police Department, and the FBI for internet crime.

The more evidence, the better. I need your help!

You got that right buddy, I started reading these threads and got a sad feeling.
Hopefully this person gets exactly what he deserves.
