    Ouch, Ouch, Ouch. Thanks for sharing. What do you do to ease the pain?

    I try to recall having been through worse. ( first marriage, personal injuries, health etc. )

    A co-worker set me straight one day when he said "you can't win every time".
    So the pain lingers, but I do recall many wins.

  3. Well, he sounds like he was a helluva guy. If it's the same guy that everybody is talking about that stole from them, it couldn't have happened to a better guy.
     
  4. Sure would be nice if the OP would chime in and add some more details :rolleyes:o_O
     
  5. this is a sad deal, I'd think for that kind of $ someone could make those garnish out of some other garnish to look rite, and have $ left over..

    By saying John Kovar was one helluva guy, are you referring to the man himself or the place that he is currently residing at?

    I've known a few guys in my life that I couldn't trust after they died anymore than I could trust them when they were still alive. Dying doesn't change a thing with some people. Relatives, too.
     
  9. So, is this person still stealing and scamming from beyond the grave? Or......

  12. Again I need a sarcasm sign. Sounds like a criminal that needed his teeth kicked out.

    The only John Kovar that passed in 2019 was a Dr. in Florida and no John Kolvrood in 2019, according to Google search of obits, legacy, etc. - that I could find (but that doesn't necessarily mean it's not out there). So, unless his family planted him in the backyard.......or maybe @Mac VP remembers his post on the subject? Either way, moot point now, because some Stu Padasso is still out there thieving.
    On a side note: The OP hasn't chimed back in to say how the transaction took place. Ebay, Model A Trader, response from a seller to a "want to buy" ad?

  18. So either a dead man scammed the OP o_O, someone posing as a dead man scammed the OPo_O or this scam actually happened several years ago, before the scammer passed and the OP is just getting around to warning us :rolleyes: OR ... the OP is warning us from his own grave :eek:, to be aware of being scammed once we too join the afterlife ... :confused:

    I don't think it's the end of the story it just appears the story ends here :mad: (at least until the OP decides a more detailed explanation would be relevant to this story).

    Here's a warning from me ... I stepped in a puddle that was a LOT deeper than it looked, keep an eye out for it and if you spot it, walk around it :rolleyes: You are very welcome ;)

    I use American Express whenever possible. The few times I've had a purchase go bad, Amex took care of it. PayPal also accepts Amex.

    Why has the OP not come back here to tell us if this was a Hamb transaction? if it was we need to know so the offender can be banned

    Oh crap...John is my real name, Jack is a nickname for John...but I swear, it's NOT me, Honest.

    Also, I'm not dead;)
     
  23. Whoa... Wait a minute! Could it be that Jonh Kovar and D.B. Cooper are one and the same???
    Curious minds want to know!
    Actually, if this IS a current deal, it could be John Jr. Sometimes the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    His sidekick went by the handle “plain Jane” maybe she still follows the same business model.

    he got me one time on a 78 case. It wasn’t worth the shipping, I just chalked it up to experience
