I was contacted by crew member Lucky13 as he suspected he was being scammed by another crew member, Dark_Rider. His initial request was simple: when had Dark_Rider last visited the site. here is Dark_Rider's site registry:



He used "jimmydarkmoon@comcast.net" as his registered email address. Lucky13 also asked if I had any IP information since he intended to proceed with a police report. When I looked at Dark_Rider's posting history, I found a "coincidence" with his posting. He shared IP addresses with another user, Taggert_LOA.

68.39.145.82 was an IP in New Jersey and 71.68.216.180 is an IP from Myrtle Beach, SC.




For those of you unfamiliar, Taggert_LOA lived in New Jersey and has since moved to South Carolina.

I decided to look into Dark_Rider's post history. He apparently knows Joe and introduces himself as Derek:

(I have locked the thread so no changes can be made.)

The odd part is, Dark_Rider apparently told Lucky13 and apparently Taggert_LOA his name was Damian. Taggert_LOA sent PMs to Lucky13 to "help" him track down Damian/Dark_Rider. Here's how that went down, via Lucky13:


It's then I realize the email address supplied to Lucky13 was "allanon_dhc@yahoo.com" and I read it as "All Anon" or, in other words "all anonymous." I decide to do a search to see if I can find any other uses of "allanon_DHC" and I do:

oh, Hey! Look, it's Taggert_LOA as his AIM name and Allanon_DHC as his yahoo! handle all on one registration:


So....what happens if I do a search for "jimmydarkmoon@comcast.net?" If you guessed "I found a post where a person with Taggert_LOA as part of the username gives 'jimmydarkmoon@comcast.net" as his contact information, you're correct!


So, if you've been scammed by a guy named Joe MacDowall using any of the above names or email addresses, I'm sure he's got a good reason for it. He may also try to represent himself as John Taggert, btw:

He has also used Kent Speedy as an alias: http://www.turbododge.com/forums/f7/f28/312215-help-needed-anybody-know-how-contact.html

so there you have it, fellow crew members. One member "allegedly" claiming to be two separate people. One person who has had a very lengthy time as a member of this site, who people were concerned about being in the hospital and sick. People have tried to help this person out multiple times. I even spent into the wee hours of the morning trying to find actual contact information on him when he insinuated he was going to commit suicide, so I could get him help.

If Joe can explain this in some really amazing sort of way, I'm all ears. I have a zero tolerance policy for scammers and liars (there's a link to the TOS in my sig) so I'm interested in feedback from other members.

Lucky13 is welcome to chime in with his story too.
