No idea who he is or what happened to cause his hissy fit, but I do know he sold hundreds of dollars worth of t-shirts on the basis all profit would be given to charity, so saying he's now going to keep the money with no explanation is not cool.

Look at his FB profile - everything is about Star Wars. His profile pic is Star Wars, his cover photo is Star Wars, every photo or post he makes is Star Wars. It's people like this I find are the biggest drama queens. It's not healthy to get so sucked up in one thing that it rules your life. That's why they have these big bust ups.

When people have entirely non-personal profiles it makes me wonder if they are even real names that they are using

No idea whats got him into a tizz either - sounds like greed if he'd promised the cash to charity

I have my suspicions about what happened here, but I want to wait and see what explanation he offers before I jump to any conclusions.

No matter how bad a situation he was in, it's no excuse to take money from the group.

Be interested to know if any of you guys in the UK have ever heard of the guy. Might be helpful as to some of my suspicions.

His attention seeking posting and use of geo tags on maps is very reminiscent of one other notable FB fraud...

But I dont know him at all and he could have genuinely been upset by someone at Miami airport :roll:
