    We were scammed by a fellow named Tyquan Robert Foster that lives in Riverdale GA. The FBI is aware of his location and is investigating him. He hacked into Ken Corben's account and used his name to sell on the Red forum. Since he took our money and never mailed the camera, he committed a federal offense and will be facing federal charges.

    Even though we believed he was a real person in LA, beware of anyone in Georgia selling a Red Epic-w.

    I received an email a few days ago from kshitij.camera@gmail.com requesting more pictures of a filter kit I'm selling here on reduser. Did a quick search on the site and found his name on the scam list. Email is a gmail address, so I believe he is using someone else's name. Site looks sort of real http://www.kshitijcamera.com
    In any case, beware.

  3. #233 John Leahy: Potential scammer 
    Hi all, just a note that I was in comms with John Leahy on his post for the scarlet-W.

    Sounded very legit but when in email communication he would only accept bank transfer wouldn't accept any paypal/esgrow talk and when I asked for a photo of his ID and some references he never replied.

    Can't say for certain at all, but it did raise some red flags for me. If anyone knows he is a trusted seller then please note it here and I will review this, or also if you have had a similar experience let me know.

    I was also in contact with John Leahy over email and made an offer, which he accepted. I then said I’m ready to pay immediately after my standard safety checks: only sending money through PayPal or escrow.com, connecting on real-name social media and a FaceTime or Skype call. In my opinion anyone sending you a camera worth the price of a car would want to do this for their protection as well, but instead he stopped responding to me after the email laying out those safety measures and bumped his post. After he ignored two of my follow up emails, I even responded to his bump post letting him know I’d emailed, and that was ignored as well.

    Not making a solid accusation against John, but that is shady as it gets and reflects your experience, Katie.

    Anyone contacting him tread carefully.
