[First post updated, 06/03/10]

Japhei is one of the most notorious scammers in the Neo Community (as well as the Capcom community). He mainly deals with MVS bootlegs. He tends to reappear here constantly, needing attention and victims.

[As this thread went on, we discovered he also has a massive criminal record (see post 157 onward)]

Name: [highlight]McMahon, Casey Michael[/highlight] (Japhei)
DOB: 10/10/1980

Casey lives in Tampa, FL, though he has routed things through other states like CA. However he's pretty wiley in changing them frequently now. In order to help protect members from his repeated solicitations, I thought we should simply collect all his known addresses and name information and post in this thread.

If you see him on another forum/site, including eBay, feel free to share it too.

That way if some random account does start soliciting people, they can simply refer to this thread and compare the addresses that they will be sending money. Sort of like the old Black Book Shawn featured in the Neo Store.

We already know his scamming ass is on the website as "garysheffield", and we've marked the account as such.

If you have info, but want to stay anonymous, feel free to contact an Admin or Mod like myself via Private Message, and we will be happy to add it

We know he reads this thread.

Did Gamers Abyss not compile a load on him before deciding that he was bored?

It was so much simpler then. Nobody thought being called Grizzley was cool then...

Out of curiosity is there also a list of people that have been scammed and for what?

Just think it might help for some perspective.

Thanks,

Jesus Christ! I can't believe that Japhei is still scamming people. Is this his full-time occupation or what? And his girl isn't really hot at all. :make_fac:

That chick is pretty cute. We should all chip in and pay Merc to track her down, take her out for dinner, and "turn her out proper". :kekeke:

And post pics, of course. :buttrock:

He was trying to scam people over at shmups.com with overinflated prices and his usual tricks.

Check out this thread: http://forums.shmups.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3383

He started with the handle of BlastAway and used the alias of David Annis and admitted in the thread that he was ArcadeGod and liven in Boca Raton, Fla. :rolleyes:

Notice that dark ass dungeon-looking wall in the background behind his girl. Even his apartment is fit for a thief.

Aracdegod = FUCKING SCAMMING DOG

Hi Guys,

THIS FUCKTARD PISSES ME OFF! I bought Demolsih Fist and Rumble Fish and he scammed me on both! He didn't send me my artwork or manuals.

I lodged complains with Paypal to say the not all parts where rec'd. That got instant responses from the Jerk!

I have sent an email this morning saying "where is my tracking number for the artworks and manuals"

IF HE DOESN'T RESPOND IM GOING TO MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY TO DO A CHARGE BACK.

See abit of the email trail below!

Gee.. thanks for the speedy reply and the answer about
where the manual for Demolish Fist is NOT.

Don't bother leaving me positive feedback because I
will leave you negative feedback cos of your lack of
communication and understanding.

You put in a chargeback on the Atomiswave motherboard and it has been received.


I will be contacting your local police if chargeback is not dropped immediately

Whatever was left out of your shipment was by accident but artwork Is not worth $250

I will be gathering your info now for prosecution

Make the right choice of face the consequences.

You are commiting fraud because you filed charge backs on 3 ITEMS totalling

$80 Demolish Fist cart
$160 Atomiswave motherboard
$150 Rumblefish Cart

You have received all three items and Tracking numbers have already been submitted to the authorities.

And Shipping was Paid on our Behalf for these items Receipts have been kept.

A Chargeback withdrawing funds totalling more then $400 have been taken from our account.

In the US that is FELONY fraud and you can face 3 years in prison.

Please drop the complaint immediately your artwork was mailed as emailed prior to you

2. Rumble Fish Manual and ARTWORK

Why is it so hard to understand?

Yes I will drop the complaint. I didn't want to go
down this road in the first place but I felt you
weren't listening and didn't care. Look at it like
this.

I have bought some gear off you and paid promptly. I
have rec'd my stuff but I don't have a clue on how it
works and no artwork?

I never wanted a refund and never wanted to cause a
problem but sometimes people don't listen unless made
too.

I am not doing a charge back on all the item and I am
not wanting a full refund or even a partial refund.
All I want is a garantee that your going to send me my
stuff and I will leave it at that.

sorry but you have sent so many email I am trying to
catch up.


Sorry for the long post but I really hate this guy now! I even tried to offer an buy more stuff off him and now he is ignoring me.

Add me as another person scammed. Sent two bootlegs (Garou:MOTW and Strikers 1945 Plus), sent them right back. After about a year, got a refund (postal money order) for the garou cart, but still out >$100 for Strikers. If you need personal info for the police or any records, let me know via PM. Happy to help with the police any way I can, and will go to small claims court if I ever visit Florida.

Arcadegod

OK - I can confirm 2 things.

1. Arcadegod is 2 people.

2. He is still lurking on this forum.

I know this because he sent me an email advising me to take this stuff off Neo-Geo.com.

I have just replied to him/them saying I will remove it but in light of what BlackSpy and ord1000 have just said I WON'T !!! be removing anything now until I get my shit the guy OWES me.

He has the nerv of saying we won't do business again and hopes I luv the artwork he sent + I am immature for acting the way I have because "things have not gone my way"

WHAT THE FUCK? All I ever wanted is what I PAID FOR!

what a dick

arcade god right. I almost bought some rare items from him but he couldnt produce a picture. He doesnt have that much negative feed back. I guess its good I didnt get anything from him. He would have gotten me too. Im brand new to collecting anything neo geo so I gather he has that advantage over the newbies.
Hey I just thought of a way to get hime off ebay. When he puts his stuff up, he has alot now. Start an auction for a penny and have it say something like.
ARCADE GOD MVS he will rip you off, show a picture of something then inside link this forum and others about him. He cant give anybody negative feedback and he can do nothing about it even if he changes his name. He still can be followed and people will be able to tell. He wouldnt scam or be able to sell shit.
