I believe he has been kicked off Ebay twice in the last month.Ruined a number of auctions by not paying after using Buy It Now.

John is nothing but trouble to deal with. He bought a certain amplifier from a friend of mine and auditioned the unit and was very happy with the deal. He emails my friend many months later saying the amp is junk and certain components were incorrect and inadequate.

Junk?? It didn't seem that way X months ago....don't even try dealing with him.

Beware !!!, John Bowering , a Liar and a Thief, has again posted another ad for his electronic gear. He now uses the user name ... yahoo. I thought this guy was banned from this CAM site. I believe that he is known by the local police.

John Bowering, a Liar and a Thief !!!, new user name ... yahoo, continues to post electronic gear for sale. Be very careful with this person. He has also scammed people by selling junk motorcycle stuff. There are more fraud warnings on this guy from other CAM members in ' Phoenix Rising, Co-incidence, Bad Spelling, Stuck Keyboard ? ' He was banned from this site but still posts ads.

Did you send him a PM or E-mail? it's pretty tough to monitor all the threads that go on here...

He's showing sold and sale pending on his items, perhaps CAM should be alerting the potential buyers (victims?). The feedback is bad but then 9 fbs from John Cosntable qualifies as a stalker....

Yes I have,several times in fact. John Bowering aka Mark Utley aka CB aka Yahoo etc etc still posts ads with impunity!! He has a few up right now.

Does this in fact demonstrate how those in charge feel about the security of the buyers here on CAM?I hope not. Please look into this!!

He is still here!! Has a new ad for a Mac 240. I guess no mod. or Admin. cares about a known scammer on the site.So it appears that buyer beware is the word of the day.
I have a nice collection of interesting pm's also,threats and all.A very nice fellow!!!

I don't understand why John Bowering is allowed to use such foul language on this CAM site. ..... in particular his feedback for ' theheat ' and previous postings under many aliases. I also don't understand why Bowering is allowed to post ads since he was banned from using this site. I hope some corrective action is provided.

I've banned Yahoo's account and other accounts from that IP.

In the future if you wish to post reports of scams please help me out and post the URLs to the spam accounts - this would greatly help me out.

I also got thrown off this thread because vintage deleted all his original posts so it looked to me like he was recanting on his report. Sorry everyone.

Thanks
