This guy is a bigger scam artist than the parents of that "Falcon" kid that did/didn't take a joy ride in his dads flying saucer shaped balloon yesterday. Can you say publicity stunt?

His listing says he bought the kite from "doomwheels" but there aren't any kites for sale there.

$1,500 for a DEFECTIVE 7m kite!?!?!
He obviously just put the auction up to just badmouth doomwheels!
I think we could be dealing with a sociopath with too much time on his hands.

Now that is RICH !:smilegrin:

Doomwheels is more a concept than a company ! Kind of hard to buy your kites from a " good idea " :rolleyes:

I knew I loved the fact this forum isn't sponsored the day I joined. I just never knew it would be this fun !:bigok:

To the best of my understanding this site is simply a person giving back to the community . A place to freely support each other with advice on the sport without commercial influence. CLEARLY a concept that Jonesband1998 seems to have trouble absorbing. :rolleyes:

Isn't doomwheels the superadmin on this site? I was under the impression he helped start or create this forum. It just sounds like a personal attack against anything to do with the PKF.

This guy already uses basterdized versions of our usernames to give bogus positive feedback for his products on his lame site. Next thing you know this guy will start slandering us as individuals.

It sounds like the first recourse for all of us that use and enjoy this site is to follow any of the ebay links posted earlier, and post a formal complaint about this seller and their illegitimate claims about this site and the responsible sellers of kites and gear that are part of our kiting community here on the PKF.

This is what he is saying about us in the link he has on his ebay items eznet.biz/powerkiteforum.htm

This guy has been a sneaky, treacherous louse that deserves nothing more than a proper lesson in grass roots mobilizing and action - click on those links and let your voice be heard - even if you're a reader and have never posted - let your voice be counted by complaining to ebay about this individuals behavior.

why isnt ebay doing anything about it?

you have a whole forum telling he's a fraud and we can all produce where the real kite comes from and what it should really retail for.

What more do they need???

I don't know why they aren't acting - maybe because he has hundreds of likely phoney positive feedback.

I've reported three of his ads.

Got to hand it to the guy, He knows what to say. How can you give a 2 year warranty on a kite?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=28038...
Look at some of the reply's he got along the way, the more you dig into his back ground the worse it looks.
Maybe we should all do some searching to see if there are any more out there. I'm glad I have nothing else better to do with my time than to look for morons like him, and I'm sure everyone else has nothing to do either.

Please do NOT quote or repost his comments. He would like to use search engines to broadcast his complaints. Let's not aid him here.

The search engine bit is a good point. We wouldn't want to help him get a good google ranking. Quick, everyone change any link you had pointing to his ebay page :roll:

the whole reason this guy is upset is BECAUSE our discussions come up under google... someone searches for MATADORA BUGGY, google picks up on it in our forum (where we know the seller is infringing copyrights, and generally trying to misrepresent himself), and it comes up on google what a ripopff everyone thinks he is....

personally, i think everyone should know about this guy posing as legitimate.... what we need to stop posting is "______ under investigation______", not, "kyson industries and matadora kite buggy is a ripoff of legitimate businesses"....

Right, but if we keep posting links to his ebay pages, then those will come up higher in the google ranking (further up the search page). Thus we don't want to post links to his pages, just complaints about him.

Jonesband is a douche. He posts damaged goods for prices he knows won't sell because he probably doesn't even own the listed product solely for the purpose of slandering legitimate kite sites and businesses.

He must lead a rather pitiful life.

I just compared notes with Bob, 100% match up, these guys are now on my ignore list...

Anything they do have no bearing on what we do here, except for the few poor souls who get suckered by him before tapping into a real kiting community... It is kind of nice to know I'm doing my job well enough to piss him off this much though. ;)

This dweeb has been bashing the traction kite people for a year, now he takes his fight to the Rev makers. Really, all you designers, manufacturers, retailers, et al need to:

- just get together
- chip in a little
- find a lawyer among you
and give this sociopath the ole class-action heave-ho once and for all.

Hell, video the summons delivery and any following court proceedings. Then post them pay-per-view on the web. That way you get you money back and the rest of us get a good laugh! Some of us could get together and have a Jonesbanned viewing party, like the Super Bowl!
