Default Marketplace scam

Hello just wanted to let everyone know there is a seller on the market place by the name Im assumeing its correct,David Cordeau that has been selling items , Myself and a few others already have paypal claims out. If by any chance he is selling on another site be cautious that this isnt the same person, he has already been suspended from the market place, but he will probably show up somewhere else.His paypal acct says hes from Nova Scotia near Halifax. Just a heads up and sorry to all the honest David cordeaus out there,that will have to prove themselves.

Any known scammers in the RC Universe Marketplace should be reported to the Moderator of that area, JWN (John) and he will take care of it with usually a site ban and IP block.
Does he go by his name or a screen name? Screen names are easier to trace down in here if he's using one but it isn't too hard to look him up by his real name either.

If I'm interested in something in the Marketplace for sale, trade or wanted I do a background check mostly to see if it's just someone who got a membership to sell or is active in the forums. I've seen a lot of them that are here just to sell. That's not really a bad thing as I have seen members that I know that are trustworthy yet don't post here.

I am not finding a member registered with that surname. If you have any suspects please let me know and I will gladly research them further.

Interesting that he does not come up in the search for me - found him via google though. My moderator superpowers dont show me any more than you see though unfortunately.
