Complete BS!

I'm neither selling any guitars right now, nor posting any!

You either remove this accusation, or I'll pursue action for slander!

I've had a Soundclick account since 2008.
How the F canI send an invoice for anything from Soundclick?

I'm telling you right now--remove the accusation--last warning!

I even told you to back off that deal if it didn't feel right.

Re: don't buy from ELECTRICEARCANDY! AlaskaBat's scam!!

just wait man good thing my brother is with internet fraude police, lets see what he says.
i never said you send the invoice from soundclick, you send it with ioffer where your shop is called electric ear candy.
should be more careful if you try to scam people into sending you money, if didn't google the name of the account the money was ordered to, together with your electric ear candy name, i probably never would have stumbled upon the combination of : Rop Tipton - electric ear candy - AlaskaBat.
but well i did! can't blame me for it only your own stupidity!!

edit: haha and yeah right sue me!

Do another Google search for electric ear candy---I found a few dozen different places using that.

Internet police? Who cares. You come here and post accusations like that based on nothing, and I'll let the mods handle it!

Is my name on that site with the guitar listed?

Was my name on any emails?

I could easily start a blog with the name Jister on it, and that doesn't mean anything.

THANK YOU!

Please note the accusations, slander, name-calling, etc. Then--go to the other thread and read the info he posted about HER--not HIM. Also make note of the most recent post about an invoice from Texas. It would be pretty hard for my to FLY down to Texas to retrieve funds that aren't even in my name.

Also--trying to keep a level head here, but the defamatory remarks are uncalled for......long fuse.......long fuse.........

Maybe you could explain the crap I had/am dealing with concerning stolen identity---he's certainly not going to believe me.
The only deal I've done recently was right here--with djrjems--ask him if he got his guitar. According to him--he loves it!

Re: don't buy from ELECTRICEARCANDY! AlaskaBat's scam!!

well you are Rob Tipton or at least RJ Tipton is AlaskaBat, and everywhere i google it's connected to electric ear candy. the same electir ear candy that tried to sell me a 777VDY for 1200$ that i had to pay with a money order, you just forgot the money order was made out to Rob Tipton then? and rob tipton (the husband that supposedly disappeared) did have the guitar because he proved that with a picture with my name on a paper sticking on the guitar.

@ ibanezfreak777 i just try to prevent people from being scammed no harm in that.

Re: don't buy from ELECTRICEARCANDY! AlaskaBat's scam!!

I'll never understand how/why people send money to strangers far away and actually believe 100% they'll receive something.
I'd never send money to a stranger EVEN if he told me he was the pope.
Some ask to be scammed.

Alaskabat is going through a dealing with concerning stolen identity so probably more will come here with acusations.
Dudes, use your brains, stop GIVING money to strangers.

Re: don't buy from ELECTRICEARCANDY! AlaskaBat's scam!!

TO ALL CONCERNED:

I don't sell on eBay.
I haven't been selling anywhere else but here for over a year. Yes, a couple of transactions were a little sour due to delays from my surgeries. But--they were all taken care of in the end.
The last transaction I did was with DJRJEMS right here in our classifieds. It was my RG770BK for his RG620X GK. Ask him if there were any issues with the transaction.

As I mentioned in another thread about a month ago--I was hacked. Not sure how, but there has been a person in Australia opening bank accounts in my name and with my personal info.
Charges on a few on my cards from Australia, Cleveland Ohio, Los Angeles, and several others. I have filed complaints with the FBI, FTC, and my local police. I'm slowly getting it cleared, and hopefully the person will get caught.

However--according to Jister--the transaction in question is with a girl named Lisa, and not even my name. He got My name by Googling Electric Ear Candy, which is a name I've used for my Soundclick page for several years. I also use it for my home studio.
Since it's not copyrighted or trademarked--there are also several other places that use that same name.
Just because I use Electric Ear Candy as my studio name does not mean I own every single site/person that uses that or something similar.

These accusations by Jister are ridiculous!
He's been paranoid about the transaction since day 1--in fact, he only joined the site to ask about it. I'll admit--that was a good idea, as I always say it's better to ask first that get burned later.

If you read my replies in his thread about it, I waffle. Why? Because at first he didn't have enough info, then he started getting what seemed to be legit info.
I even stated that if he didn't feel good about it--then back away from it. If this was me trying to sell an item--would I tell a person to back away? No--don't think so.

So, all of you munching popcorn reading all of this---take all of this into consideration.
I've been a contributing member of this site for over 4 years. I've had several great transactions in our classifieds. Had a few sour ones withing my surgery time frame--but got them worked out.
I'm also the first one to jump into threads where members are questioning possible transactions outside of Jemsite--and telling them the same thing. If it doesn't feel right--back off.
