Well its obvious he has been uncovered as a con artist throughout the phpBB communities, as he has now removed his site from email messages and changed his email address.

I am so surprised he still has the nerve to keep going this way, I really don't know why he just doesn't use the correct channels like everyone else.

The net can be a very shady place, be careful folks.

I have seen this reported on a few forums now. It's good that the word is getting out.
