looking through some old posts and found this one.
If any of the members who lost money to this guy care to know, In the end he was banned from ANB and went on to lose his job and girlfriend, a couple of years later he asked to rejoin the club after running into another member on the street and was flatly refused. To the best of my knowledge he's never played Airsoft since and isn't welcome at any of our events, although there's been some new "back yard" clubs starting up and I have no control over who they let play. I'm also glad to say this sort of thing has only ever happen with one other player in our club over the course of seven years, so we've been staying on top of it.
Rest assured, if you screw someone the Airsoft Gods will screw back.
