Just a heads up... to those of you who talked or got conned by this guy... send me a pm.. with relevant information.. i am in the process of filing a mail fraud complaint against this guy since I think he is full of #$##. My bank has asked that I send them all relevant information since they funded the paypal transaction and I have disputed the charges... any additional people who come forward can help bolster that this guy is a con artist and once they get the information about this guy etc.. i can forward it the relevant people to file claims against him. He emailed me after I posted about him and told me that his dad had a heart attack and thats why it is taking so long and he would fix the problem... this guy is all excuses and i do not think he has 5000.00 to begin with. He is probably conning his way to that money. As far as the story about him and his wife being blindsided.. I wont say anything on that.. but if it's a lie... karma really is a #@$#@... its like saying your parents are dead when they really arent.. what a cold hearted dude...anyways... do not deal with this guy and the mods here should suspend his account if he is blatantly ripping people off.

If you have a complaint lodged for mail fraud, then you should have a case/claim number supplied to you. You do not need to coordinate with others to add them to your complaint, anyone else can simply contact their PO and reference your case number with their own complaint. Simply share the case number and let anyone else do what they have to do.

Unfortunately, that name matches a known account of Matt Mason's. It IS him.

 

FORTUNATELY, criticalmess.net has compiled a comprehensive guide for recognizing and detecting his patterns.

 

further, measures have been taken to insure that his local Post office, and the Inspector General of the United States Postal Service are aware of his past transgressions, past IDs, and any other relevant information we could procure.

 

yes, his amounts are petty, but they add up to a significant amount, over a significant amount of time, and that adds up to grand larceny, and what's worse, since it's mail fraud, it's a FEDERAL offense.

 

it's time we stand up and protect our community from those who seek to destroy the bond of trust we forge here in these communities. It's time to stop blaming the victims of this clown for not being aware of the situation, and being taken time and again. It's time to educate ourselves, and protect ourselves from this type of crime. It's not victimless, it's not innocent, and it's time to make him pay, and it's time to make him suffer for what he's done to so many.

 

yes, it's 'at your own risk' but it shouldn't be 'sorry about your luck'. I'm not saying this board owes a responsibility to the victims of this guy, but they should be willing to help beyond simply banning the guy when he pops up.

 

some tips: Any address in and around Kankakee, BEWARE. Make them send first, use paypal, etc. If they refuse to comply, back away slowly, but don't show your back.

 

second, if they DO mention a Kankakee address, NOTIFY THE ADMINISTRATORS, so that they can keep an eye on the guy. Third, if you've already been taken by this guy, THERE IS HELP.

 

At least in Kankakee, the Postal Inspector is aware of this guy's shenanigans, and last I knew, the investigation was ONGOING. If you have been taken by him, here is some helpful contact info:

 

 

US Postal Inspection Service

475 L'Enfant Plaza SW RM 3100

Washington DC 20260-3100

 

www.usps.com/postalinspectors

 

or call the Federal Trade Commission

 

1-877-FTC-HELP (Toll Free)

 

www.ftc.gov

 

and the Internet Crime Complaint Center

 

http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx

 

these people do NOT play around, and any complaint made to them will be treated with the utmost seriousness.

 

the more people who are willing to share their stories, the more we have against him if this ever makes it to court. If you're willing to testify, he's gonna disappear, because he'll be too busy trying not to get stabbed in prison.

Wow, you really think so?

 

a lot of the info I have is because it's public knowledge.

 

I know the investigation is ongoing, and they're still asking for more information, especially regarding new victims. That's the biggest part in this. Most of his victims are angry, but they don't feel they HAVE any options.

 

I've just given them some.

 

the investigators just need to dig and they will find that he is active and unrepentant.

 

trust me, it WILL catch up with him. It's attitudes like yours, synch, that encourage his behavior. It's attitudes like mine that will end the threat completely.

 

I encourage people to educate themselves, and have provided the means to do just that. I have compiled information, and a how-to on recognizing his patterns at criticalmess. I've given the information for the Postal Inspectors.

 

and here's another one:

 

If they insist on doing business with you, MAKE THEM SEND THEIR END OF THE BARGAIN FIRST. AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU USE SHIPPING CONFIRMATION If they do not comply, DO NOT send goods or money.

 

if you have sent the item and it has not arrived, THERE STILL MAY BE HOPE. Fill out a form 1059, they can call the Kankakee post office and stop delivery. This will be added to the FILE they've currently got on this guy, as it is an ongoing FEDERAL investigation. The more people who do this, the more evidence they will have on him, the more evidence they have, the more likely it is that he will end up in JAIL where he belongs!

 

I have piles of information on this guy. So do many others. anybody is free to contact me at criticalmess at ANY time, and I'll be happy to investigate a suspected scammer.

 

one of the simplest and earliest warning signs is a Kankakee or Bourbonnais Illinois address. This is the greatest piece of information that's available. If that town comes up, it should be a gigantic red flag.

 

I suspect ANY Illinois address, until I've cross-referenced it with every known address I currently have record of. I've given you the power and the resources. Don't let him win due to apathy and doubt, or you're just as responsible as he is.

 

fight back. Show no mercy, or sympathy, as I assure you he has none for you or yours. Take him away from his family and home. Make him regret ever crossing you. Make him have to explain to his children that the reason they don't have a father is because he stole toys.

 

I want to be his greatest enemy. I want him to curse my name to the grave. I want him to never forget me, and what I've done to him, and his life. And I want him to know he brought it upon himself, and had every opportunity to repent, and chose not to. I want him to never rest. I want him to question whether or not that guy behind him is somebody he ripped off and is looking to take the cost of their stolen goods out on his ass. I don't want him to have a moment's peace. I want him jumping at shadows and waking up in a panic.

 

I've seen way too many of my friends wanting to drive to his place and take the cost of their loss out on his ass, his property, or worse. I don't want to see those people end up in jail over some stupid #$##, when he's the one who deserves to be behind bars. I'm doing whatever I can to see that that happens. I know and understand your POV. I had the same attitude to begin with "If he hasn't been caught yet, he never will be".

 

well he never will be as long as we keep that attitude. We need to provide as much information as possible to the authorities. Sure he only takes a little at a time out of this community, but it adds up to a LOT, and in the eyes of the law, it doesn't matter. It's still mail fraud, and at the levels we're talking, it's no longer small potatoes, it's Grand Larceny.

 

I do agree with you, Synch, Education is key. Knowing the facts, and the telltale signs will protect people. And they trade at their own risk. But I want them to also know that even if they DO get suckered, because it happens, even to those who know what to look for, that there are still options.

 

I will never be taken in by this fool. I only give him enough rope to hang himself, and I have protected my community so far from his scams. I want to protect the entire subculture of adult toy collectors from him, but I can't do it without help. And without educating people.

It can take a long time to build to an arrest and prosecute, mostly because each account is a petty crime. Its the number of petty crimes by the perp that drive the urgency of the arrest and prosecution. If the authorities are saying that they have started a case, then its very likely they are looking into this case, but..........

 

All those involved in the search need to do something, and its something very important.

You need to put your money where you mouth is:

 

By that, I mean you need to share the case number that the genuine investigating authorities will give you, and the name of the head investigating officer.

They WILL supply this to disseminate to others.

If you cannot supply that, then all you are doing is making idle threats, and it looks like you are making up the threat to pursue this just to intimidate.

There's no need to "coordinate" this at the collector level, just share the case number, and remind the collector communities that have been ripped off that they can access that growing investigation.

 

Doing so will accomplish a couple of things. It will put your claim in against the perp and build the case. It will also add weight to the sentence that can be brought against them, if convicted. And it might also lead towards restitution in any civil action against the perp.

 

See, this is where and why most of these crimes flourish. The victims assume nothing can be done, they write off the losses because its usually $50 or less apiece, and they erase the communication and try to forget about it. Without the email trails, and effort to pursue, the crime remains unchallenged, and those that DO challenge it have a mostly toothless case without the support of numbers.

 

You CAN effect an arrest, I know this for a fact from a situation involving another errant "collector". They do take time to build to a conviction, mostly because its a process of uncovering other crimes and tying together identities.

Rowdy26 has, undoubtedly committed other crimes of different natures--likely other frauds, as it goes with the kinds of behaviours he indulges in.

He may even have a prior record for such crimes.

 

The key thing to remember is for all his "craftiness"...his an effin idiot. He keeps perpetrating, and he keeps getting found out. If a garden-variety collector on the Internet can pierce this guy's ID and MO, then it would not be too hard for a dedicated investigator to build a case that would put him behind bars.

It just takes time, and any of us victimized by the guy can help.

indeed.

 

first off, this guy has likely never had $5000 in his life.

 

and if he did, what he SHOULD be doing with it, is trying to make peace with the people he ripped off, and begging forgiveness, while making preparations for a lengthy stay at his local Lockdown Hotel.

So this person is the same person who posts as Matt Mason for years?

 

What I don't understand is how can the same person rip of so many people year after year?

 

I wish I had a simple answer for you.

 

but it comes down to the fact that the amounts he steals are considered so small that most of his victims chalk it up as a lesson to not trust anybody, and let that be the end of it.

however, they don't realize that it's not the amount of the individual infractions, but the sum total, that the postal service is gonna look at, and at the moment, it's estimated in the thousands, which is easily enough for a federal charge of grand larceny, and mail fraud.

 

but, cases like this take YEARS to prosecute, especially as the Feds take their time gathering evidence, but trust me, they ARE gathering it. I know for a fact that the investigation is ONGOING at least with his local PO in Kankakee.
