Exclamation Major scam alert!!

This is a major scam alert.

User mcjeff47 has scammed, and is in the process of trying to scam, several MO members.

While I have engaged in the usual banning tactics, here is more relevant information about this dirtbag.

First, he uses the name of an actual legitimate DVC Member, G a r y D u b i n, to try to lure in the renter. He also has been known to use the alias Timy Hakim (though I havenít checked whether thatís the name of a real DVC member).

He uses the email address of gboxworldwide@gmail.com to correspond with people.

He uses timyhakim@gmail.com and eddietart@gmail.com as paypal payment addresses.

He uses the following addresses for references:
christiangold@gmx.us
yeungtong232@gmail.com
gdhoiyday@yahoo.com

And finally, he uses 657-464-7079 and 318-995-4370 as cell numbers.

Remember, folks, if it sounds to good to be true, then it damn well is.

Good luck out there.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop, Kim! This is exactly why I feel more comfortable renting from an active member here. Just my personal comfort level, though.

Looks like the same scammer from the thread "one last thing...send me your membership card" as the 657 464-7079 number is the same.
