  1. #1

    Default Fraud Alert Username Newtyer1!!!!!!

    See this thread on other BBs about "Newtyer1"

    WARNING- Scammer making the rounds on FF forums - The Fly Tying Bench - Fly Tying

    Request for help recovering payment or rod from NewTyer1 aka Scott Martin | Washington Fly Fishing

    He has been on our BB with his scam trying to sell to one of our members:

    If the moderators agree, they should remove him and prevent him from rejoining under another name.

    I did check this and placed the user on the banned IP list here.





    While this thread may be getting some views I want to take that opportunity to say this: Whenever you see someone making a post every minute and then placing an ad in our classifieds you should report the 'New Member'.

    When you click on a classified sale placed by a new member click the user name; choose to "See all posts" by that user, and use sound judgment before entering into a deal with people.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I am sorry to hear of this unsavory character making rounds through the FF community and betraying people's trust. Perhaps you should also warn those on the Southeast Fly fishing Forum as he is an active member there with over 500 posts.

    he is all over the Internet running his sob stories and his scams. Please spread the word and believe me it's all true.

    I bought his tale of woe and sent him a complete reel set up. He complained about it.

    Nothing like the sound of a good old ban hammer falling.

    This reminds me of a thread on 24hourcampfire (I believe) that by the end of it, the guy's name, face, place of work, and pretty much entire life story got thrown up on the internet. Best to get these people out in the open...
