One of the admins has asked for a photo of his plane tickets and he's told them to go fuck their mother then blocked them. Nice one Gazza.

I could find his profile yesterday but can't today and having had no dealings with him and not being in the same group he can't possibly have blocked me so I would have to say this has just been a scam from the start

All very strange. I particularly don't get how his story has any relevance to quitting collecting.

Its bad form keeping the t-shirts money if the profits wer for charity. I reread the op I think hes just quitting fb groups I don't think hes quitting collecting, maybe some guy did really screw him over as he said. Obviously he would have thought it was someone he could trust. And he has been just really pissed off and put up the post in the heat of the moment.

That's a pretty shocking story if it's true but if you were desperate for money, why would you go to these lengths to rob someones stuff when the victim will know exactly who did it and just go straight to the police?

That's a good point maybe it is a scam as some have said, its hard to know.

looks pretty nailed on attention seeking rather than scamming - he'll be loving all the discussion going on about him. I'd put money on him being Jake Repas.

I hope I've not confused him with someone else, but he's the guy that has had multiple identities on Facebook, exposing frauds of his own creation and a general Walter Mitty type. Not dodgy but clearly not all there. He's had so many identities that I'm now worried that I've confused him with someone else :lol:

Either way, you should be fine

If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.
