Let me start by saying I know I am not a regular user here. And no I did not make a purchase from an ad or deal on this forum. I did however pay someone, who frequently posts on this forum, who stole my $. I would like to prevent anyone else from getting scammed by him.

The user's name is SteveHHYou can click the name for his user profile.

My issue with this guy is that he was selling .380 ammo on a forum BersaTalk.com. I contacted him via PM and he said he would ship 7 boxes of WWB .380 ammo for $100. This sounded like a good deal so I sent him a USPS money order in the amount of $100. I will list the events in chronological order to show how this guy has screwed me out of my money and creates one lie after another.

8/17/09 - $100 money order sent to Steve Hasbrouck of Levittown, PA.
8/24/09 - $100 money order is cashed by Steve Hasbrouck at a Fulton Bank
9/01/09 - Around this date I contact Steve via PM on BersaTalk.com and inquire of the status. He says he has not received my money order. I contact him a week later and he still claims that he has not received my money order. BersaTalk.com changes their Forum code to a different format and access to the old forum is restricted so I was unable to pull the PM conversations from there. Steve does not register on the new site so I have no form of contact for him. I search the internet for him and discover his email address. I also track him down to this forum. I later file an inquiry with the USPS on the status of my money order.
9/28/09 - I receive the result of my inquiry with the USPS on the money order.
9/28/09 - I contact Steve via AIM chat and ask what the status of my ammo is. He initially claims he sent it, and that I should take it up with UPS. Once I inform him that is his responsibility he changes his story. He claims that he received my money order but the envelope was "all ripped up and shredded". But the scan of the money order shows it to be in perfect condition. How can an evelope be so damaged without the contents being damaged? He claims he will send me some new ammo when it comes in if he can't get it sorted out with his "shipping company that he uses".
10/08/09 - I contact Steve via PM on this forum as did not see him on AIM after our initial chat nor had I heard from him. He ignores my PM and replies to threads on this forum.
10/09/09 - I send another PM to Steve requesting he just refund my $100 and give a deadline of 10/16/09 to comply. He finally responds and claims he does not have the $100 and that the people at his shipping company do not have the tracking information and he did not keep records of it either. Steve claims he can send some Glaser Silver Saftey slugs in the mean time. He states he has to take care of his family first.

This sparks off a lot of PMs back and forth. I will post those in another post. Over the past few months he has sent me two $10 checks. Each with a signed note stating that he would pay me back the rest later. I have been watching his posts here and have seen that he has no problem spending money on parts for his truck or other luxury items. When I question him about it he claims someone else bought it for him or whatever lie he comes up with at the time.

The bottom line is this. I have come to accept that I will not see the rest of my money. This jerk has lied to me countless times and is nothing more than a scammer who was stringing me along to keep me from taking action. I am posting this to prevent someone else from being scammed by this loser.

he was selling bowties on another forum, and he was told by the moderator that he had his info incorrect about which trucks they fit, bit he insisted that he knew what he was selling.
Yup, he argued that quite a bit IIRC.
Guess I missed that, because that's the forum that the one I bought was advertised on. Maybe I should start reading more before I buy things. :idea:
He had several of them forsale, I can't say you bought it before or after, But I know he had fullsized bowties listed for s-series.
Or if you're just a ****ing slob. That ashtray picture makes me want to vomit.
There was even a thread where he got so much shit for his place being disgusting, that he tried to clean it, and he basically dumped his ashtray out, wiped off his keyboard and took a picture.

and he was also selling a WWII Nazi ring of some sort, that cleary had a Swastika on it, and he was trying to tell everyone that it wasn't a swastika, it just looked like one. :haha:
So you come in here and completely avoid the OP and his "allegations" ? Real classy. How about explaining the 2 installments of ten dollars, yet you're still buying shit in the meantime?
This thread is getting quite disgusting.
It already was when Dr. Steve's grubby ass was even mentioned.
you his sister?
I'm pretty sure she's talking about AW and his feeble attempts to be funny.

If I was lying about not receiving the ammo (that you never shipped) why would someone else post up a thread on BersaTalk.com about you ripping them off as well? It was posted around the same time I contacted you about not receiving my ammo. Face it you scammed us. You are also the reason why there is no longer a For Sale forum on BersaTalk.com

You may have had 7 boxes of ammo to sell and sold it to one person, but kept the ad up when you realized you could keep getting money in. You continuously lied to me over and over again. You made up story after story about how you were SOOO broke you couldn't afford to pay your own bills, had to move in with your parents, didn't have a job, and so on. All while you continued to spend money on other guns, parts for your truck, and whatever else was not as important as paying me back.

And as for paying me back $10 a month for 10 months... I am not a bank. I do not give out interest free loans to strangers on the internet. I never agreed to these terms. I gave you deadline after deadline to pay me back the full amount. You routinely ignored them.

I have filed a claim with the United States Postal Inspection Service. I have contacted the other guy you ripped off and he is also going to file a claim. The US gov't doesn't take mail fraud lightly. I will be posting your communications with the other guy on here shortly.

You brought this upon yourself.

EXCELLENT! bring the hammer down.

So who knows where this guy lives?
It's on the frist page, but I'd like to let Riggz have his chance at teh ownage.
None of my past girlfriend's have been nasty. :dunno:

And if you're referring to that thread in which I was owned, I was wasted, and after I woke up, trust me I ran, and ran fast. :rotf:
Please, don't feed the wildlife.
Can you find a bigger pic? That one is kind of small Jason. :haha:
well damn, you roll your eyes at me if it's too big, so i go smaller, and you just laugh. i dunnnew what to dooooo.
Lighten up francis, let's just laugh at this buttpuppet.
