Default Anyone ever deal with newtyer1

I had a rod and reel listed in the classifieds that he made an offer on which was accepted but there's been no response back, he has no posts, looks like he deals with private messages only, and his account may have been closed.

(I tried to post this in the classifieds but now I need 100 posts). Thanks.

TP: Looks like you got real lucky not completing the deal with the scammer newtyer1, he has quite the reputation built up online.

Default Re: Anyone ever deal with newtyer1

I had a couple of PMs from Newtyer1 about my Orvis rod I had listed in classifieds. Never dealt with him before but am glad that I read the posts just shared. Looks like folks have had some strange experiences with him.

I had decided to keep my rod (take it off classifieds) so never proceeded ahead with any further discussions with Newtyer1, so no way to predict what would have happened.

He used the name of the Quantico Marine Base Project Healing Waters coordinator to try to scam a fly tying vise from Regal.

His name is Scott Martin from Staunton, VA. Beware of sending any money or goods to this person.

He claims on Facebook to be a part of PHW among other things

Of note, I saw him using the name 'bamboo1' on another forum. Didn't try to disguise his location etc but did change his usual username.

Well I did receive a PM from newtyer1 this morning saying he'd have to pass on buying the Orvis rod and reel because his wife just gave him a surprise vacation - he's leaving tomorrow. Evidently he's not going fly fishing!

I happened to stumble across his name yesterday on the "Ultralight FFF". Not sure if he is active though.
