KB8RCR John Shelton: SELLERS / BUYERS BEWARE

Post by AA8VL » Mon Aug 25, 2003 5:13 pm

John Shelton, KB8RCR called me regarding an 870S I had forsale on QTH. We arranged a meet halfway between columbus and cincinnati, Ohio on a late Sunday evening.

He STOOD me up for three hours with a NO SHOW. I waited for this guy until 1:30 am in the mourning I tried calling his home and cell phone and they were turned off. After I left a dozen messages on his cell phone he finally called me back the next afternoon telling me he was in a car accident on the way up(a semi ran him off the road). John also said that his wife had to pick him up and they didnt get home until 4am in the morning. He then told me he would be up the evening to pick up this radio. I waited...waited...waited and he never showed. Tried calling his cell phone and it was off.

NOW, I called his home phone and his wife answered. She said he was never in an accident and she thought he was coming back to columbus to pick another radio up.

Turns out these excuses were for him to get away from his wife to commit...............well you can guess the rest.

So in closing I was stood up twice. Wasted 5 hours of my time between driving and waiting for this guy the first time. And wasted another evening waiting for him to pick up this radio...all while he is probably cheating on his xyl. John has never called me again. Not to apologize...NOTHING!

Here is Johns info in case anyone else has been taken advantage of:

JOHN SHELTON

I've had a bad dealing with JOHN SHELTON of Cincinnati , OH. also. His call is KB8RCR. I sent him a money order for some equipment and never got it. He won't answer the phone or return calls or emails. I read he's ripped off many other people. I am a detective for the the police department. Maybe this guy has screwed with the wrong person finally. I'll see what I can do about him.

You could get a full time job on the Classifieds working as a Detective, catching those Fraudsters.

Would the Police Dept cover your Wages and expences to help Amateur Radio.

It goes to show Fraudsters can only burn a certain amount of people until they get the wrong one.
Well Done Harley, keep us updated.

Fill his wife in!

Somebody should call his wife and fill her in on what is happening! Better yet get a female to call.

Observation:

There is nothing told, so far, to indicate what the man was actually doing when he was supposed to be meeting for swaps. Such factual information is totally missing.

Question:

Why have some reached the conclusion that the man was cheating on his wife? This is a serious charge to make in a public forum.
