    I may have been scammed by a guy going by "ruben contreras".

    I wired him $1900 for a set of Kino Flo 2' 4 banks that he was selling on RedUSER, and since wiring him the money he has gone MIA. No communication, no tracking number, etc., except for marking the lights as Sold on the thread.

    He has other listings for sale, but not sure what the deal is if anyone has tried to buy those items.

    Anybody had any experiences?

    I got scammed by the Frazer guy, also. Was looking for an Arri SR eyepiece.

    Thank goodness, after a few weeks wait, Paypal was able to refund me.

    WARNING

    DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM RUBEN CONTRERAS

    The guy sold me a set of Kino Flo's last month and never shipped them. Ever since i paid, he has stopped all forms of communication with me (email or RedUser).

    After half a dozen messages from me a week after the payment and no communication, he finally replied "I shipped them last week", but would not tell me what shipper, what tracking number, etc. Since then he has gone dark.

    He's still active on RedUser trying to sell his Epic package, and I dont want to see someone get scammed out of over 10X what he took from me.(

    Does anyone have any experience with this piece of scum?

    UPDATE

    Regarding RUBEN CONTRERAS

    Does anyone have any experience with this guy? Does anyone live in Vallejo or San Fransisco, CA? Trying to track him down, but he is MIA. He finally admitted that he didn't ship the gear (made up an excuses about UPS holding it at their warehouse) but now i can't get a hold of him again.

    Filed a report with the Local police dept in the hopes that they'll pull through, but I'd rather reason with the guy himself.

    That's right! Get a new Raven package still in box for $8500!
    I hate scammers.

    I got a suspicious email today from Tony Perez, offering to sell me an EF Mount (I had posted a WTB ad). I looked him up in the member directory here, and he just joined RU a week ago and has no posts.

    Tony Perez is a scam.

    Can't His "bank account is currently not setup for wire transfers. If you're okay with sending it as a money order then I will be fine with accepting the money that way."

    Seriously... dude, at least learn to scam people with wit.
