Was talking about doing a hardware deal with pokerme. Said he was from the US but needed to stay away from BTCrow. I asked for some more information so we can talk, and he gave me this contact information

John Graven
8863 New Athens Darmstadt Road
New Athens, IL 62264
My current number is 573-424-2559

A quick search for that phone number turns up this topic from April - June a scammer AprilShowers who is using the exact same phone number - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=189646.new

The address they gave is a for-sale home in the middle of nowhere. http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/8863-New-Athens-Darmstadt-Rd-New-Athens-IL-62264/2118240663_zpid/

ChinaPump PMed me earlier, asking me to write down "Pokerme" note and attached it to the Avalon mini miner to take a picture to show him that I owed that miner.

Hence, ChinaPump and this AprilShowers/PokerMe are the same scammers.

Hmmm, I was supposed to purchase an Avalon from pokerme using local pickup. I wonder how they were planning on scamming me?

he would just give you an avalon case with a tire iron in it so it was heavy enough to pass for the real thing! Genius!

This swindler cheated me by 0.66 BTC, but the blame is mine, that did believe him and I was an absolute Newbie.
That is the topic that I made for the occasion and the strangest thing is that the Admins of this forum still have not banned him:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=335721.msg3603947#msg3603947

Give us a link to his current account to put his "negative trust".
