I hope at some point soon they quit playing patty cake with this pos and lock him up good.
Postal fraud would be a good way to get him

That's why he is requesting funds by Western Union like all scammers from Nigeria.

When you see a transaction request by Western Union, all kinds of ALARMS should go off in your mind!

Google the phone number that is calling you. See two posts (#31) above.

Don't put your phone number or email address in your ads. Most ad sites have a blind email system.

If you get such a response from a blind email system, REPORT IT!

Angry Re: Parts Sales Fraud

After reading this post i am almost convinced this may be the same guy scamming a good amish friend. He sent an american express m.o. To a guy in somerset pa for $200.00 for an engine part. He never got it and the m.o. Was cashed. That was over a month ago! The phone number he is using is: 724-797-0949. I doubt if my amish friend wants to persue it but i as his friend would like to see this large problem solved for everybody. David babcock.

Bill Stevens is in jail again. I spoke to a fellow who talked to the police there. He hadn't been charged yet, but the police said he's going away for a long time this time. I don't know what he was charged with this time. He is known to be involved in all kinds of bad behavior.

That's too bad I was really looking forward to the Breeman Caloric salesman sample hot air engine he was going to sell me for $900 The engine was supposed to be in working order. He was only selling it to me because he had another one I didn't need two. He first offered it to me for $500 and then I told him that wasn't enough then he said $900 and I told him I still would pay more if it was the real thing. He couldn't seem to come up with any pictures though

Well, it looks like Stevens is back in jail, but just like the last time, his accomplices are still at it. We've gotten 4-5 calls since the first of the year from people who've been contacted. The story is always the same. Someone has something really desirable for sale at a good price, they want you to send a money order or wire money to someplace in western Pennsylvania. Then you never hear from them again.
Also, there was a guy working Florida swap meets who would talk to you, find out what you were interested in, and what do you know, he just happens to have what you want at home. And he'll sell it cheap! Just give him half now and send the other half when he ships the part to you. But you never hear from him again. Please be careful out there.

This thread reminds me of another scam. This guy was trying to get investors in his product. He showed pictures of it on youtube. Only problem was all you could see was the front of it with a big spinning wheel. He claimed it would run off of a nine volt battery. I sent him an email telling him I wanted to visit his shop for a closeup look at the thing. Never heard from him again and the youtube video disappeared.
