    You are lucky he was baddddd news.

    I'm gonna need to wake the real old timers for this one. I think Pearson's Luckys went down for good in 2001.

    Jeff is driving around CR with a brand new Hummer. He scammed the people he was working for a couple hundred thousand. The company was selling coffee franchises and he offered their clients much more than coffee franchises behind their back. They would send money directly to his bank account but he didn't deliver on what he promised.

    After a few months of doing this, the FTC shut down the company and now the owners are in a law suit while Jeff left and went his merry way.

    What a shock.
    And now he keeps a low profile driving a hummer?
    He has really stolen a lot of money through the years.

    Anyone else have a scammer they would like to throw out?

    Let's go waaaay back. How about Dunes Jim? Or how about NAB Bill or even one of my very favorite Grand Central scammer Peter?

    Where are these guys now? Any others?

    Come on, John - you're the expert. Let's have the top 10 list - heck you could reserve offshoremostwanted.com and turn it into some kind of bizzare auction site.

    Once one of the guys is found, there's an auction and the highest bidder gets to spend 10 minutes in a room with the respective guy armed with a piece of wood with a liberal scattering of rusty nails.

    Every time I hear from people in CR who see him Pearson isn't keeping a low profile at all. You'd think he would but he's out and about all the time. He usually has a bodyguard or two with him and/or a big old shotgun he likes to carry around but they see him quite a bit.

    He's a big MF'er too, not someone most of us would want to approach by ourselves even if he did owe us money.

    The big scammers love their body guards. Tej and K come to mind.

    Let's see.. I'm going to need some help and certainly some spelling help with some of these last names.

    How about Anthony V. (whats his last name?) from Securebux? He is top 5 material.

    There's ole Charlie Therwanker(ok, help me out with this one too) from Aces Gold

    Eddie Hadeed from AladinsGold

    Whats was the guys name who ran BetPanAm initally? He was also sued for stealing $1 million from VIP?

    How about Ido from Yahoops.

    Joe Russo from BetUS and Tej ***** from Royal are both top 5 locks.

    I mentioned NAB Bill.. hmm, There were a lot of small timers. Gonna have to work on this one.

    Surely that wasn't his name.

    I'll bet he was referred to as Charlie The Wanker by people who he stiffed.

    Yea, although they haven't stiffed anyone lately, or at least today.

    There is one name in the payment processing businesses that folks avoid like the plague.

    Whats the guys name from Penn, with ESB connections?? Sounds like a relative of Bin Laden its like Aiteya or something?

    Nick Nolter is the name. I don't know who I would put as the number scammer offshore. This guy or Tej. Or maybe it's a tie.

    Why does Tej get such a bad name?

    I hear he's always happy to show off his gun collection to even a small winner in his book.

    Tej figured out it was a very good business model to open a casino or sportsbook up and not bother setting up a withdraw dept. After a few months and folks screaming scam, he's close it down and open another. This was repeated about 100 times.

    OK, who is going to help me with that ESB guys name? He is in jail right now I think.

    Yea I see Peter from Dunes has resurfaced. Now that was one bizzare story. I think the linesman was caught coked to the moon wearing womens lingere. Meanwhile Dunes Jim came on the forum and said anyone being a smart ass and asking for a payout while things were tight would go to the end of the line.

    Man it was the Wild, Wild West in them there days.....
