      I really feel the way Jimbob feels about scammers as well. But I know, even if the information is put out there, I can't get everyone to read and know how to handle something like this. And part of scamming is, the scammers are slick enough to make people think it is not a scam.

      It is really frustrating, with the internet that, this stuff is so easy to get away with.
      I normally have that prerequisite but in this case he had a good reputation on Mytt and we even had some mutual acquaintances so I thought I could trust him. I think something must've happen that caused him to change his behavior.

      As for the scammers: Some of course are smart enough to change their modus operandi from time to time, i.e. whenever it's necessary. You cannot avoid them 100% of the time.
      It can also be the flag of Canada! Or even Austria! With a little imagination Denmark can work too, it's a very versatile blade

      I really didn't want to remove the handle on this one. The handles on commercial blades are relatively easy to remove but not on my blades so I fear I might ruin it.

      I am sure the handle looks good and there is no need to change it. Hopefully someone wants to buy it.

      Feel free to post photos of it in this thread.

      Several of his deals at MyTT went bad and he has been banned there. I'm sorry it wasn't in time to help you.

      His full name is Juan Manuel Calderón Aldana.

      And definitely worth posting stuff on the guy's social media.
      His Instagram page is not accessible anymore, it seems...
      Instead I found this page:
      https://www.bebee.com/pe/bee/juan-ma...alderon-aldana

      Now, I do not speak spanish, but Google Translate can help...
      "I am an Administrator of the Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences of the University of Lima. Certified as SMC (Scrum Master Certified) and SDC (Scrum Developer Certified) by the ScrumStudy of the United States, in agile methodologies for project management."
      Not sure if he is really associated with this University; perhaps he studied there. But the above mentioned bebee page also mentions "Panorama Global Sports" which seems to be a tt shop. It has or has had a facebook page which I'm also not able to access. Searching for images indicate that this shop is or was a Butterfly distributor.
      Anyway, since chintanmashroo wants to file charges against Juan, he might also want to take a look at Panorama Global Sports.

      Generally I think that these scammers need to be confronted as often as possible. If you look at the "Known scammers" thread over at mytt and read some of the stories, one can see/read that in some cases it actually works. In one instance one mytt member knew one of the scammers personally, confronted him and was eventually able to sort the things out. In another case the club of the scammer was contacted and apparently the scammer was suspended from participation and complained about it and also that the personal information about him should be removed from mytt...

      That being said, it is frustrating to see that for example this czech mf Erik Zegermacher from Trebon is still "on the loose". There are multiple complaints about him (on mytt, a german forum and probably elsewhere too). He plays or played for the club(s) "TJ Jiskra Trebon" and "TJ Calofrig Borovany".

      https://docplayer.cz/147571280-Porad...korbel-ml.html (page 2)
      https://www.elost.cz/st/druzstvo/tj_jiskra_trebon_a-4
      https://www.edb.eu/czech-firm-846035...trebon/contact

      I would imagine that there are ttd and/or mytt members who live more or less nearby Trebon, speak the language and maybe even know other people of these clubs. It might be worth contacting his club(s) and tell them about their criminal club mate, wouldn't it?

      Isn't it safe to assume that he watches rather closely what we are talking about?

      Especially since he got a notification that he got banned for scamming on TTDaily and that I put, in his status that he is an equipment scammer.

      Yeah, I noticed the status change. I found a few other things: I assume that these are pictures which he posted on his Instagram...if you scroll down a little bit you can see that he met Hugo Calderano, Kanak Jha... not bad; and a bunch of blades he probably stole from other people (ahemm..."traded" with other people)
      https://www.pinterest.de/flashpoint4080/

      Let's see how long it will take him to delete his Youtube account...what is he saying by the way, can anyone translate?




      Short update: The following info I received might be interesting for people with a linkedin account and also for chintanmashroo...Juan possibly changed his employer.

      https://pe.linkedin.com/in/juanmanuelcalderonaldana

      This as well, might be good to screenshot. Looks like he recently started a new position at:

      That blade looks great, and I’d buy it as is. But, I have too many at the present time. Nice work.

      This guy Zegermacher was one of the worst and most persistent scammers I ever dealt with at MyTT.

      It would be interesting to hear from chintanmashroo again and if there is any progress in the case in general and in the communication with the police from Lima in particular. I understand that he needed to provide more evidence against Juan...but maybe we will know more by the end of next week.

      So, it seems that our dear scammer from Lima edited some stuff he uploaded online...he edited his bebee page and deleted his YouTube vids...
      https://www.bebee.com/pe/bee/11111linux
      https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuf...wLwWID4QGkgrOg

      That's too bad. He is such a handsome, young, well...scammer.
