Frankvonwolfgeist is trying to sell some large lots of CDs/LPs and is trying to get payments quickly, but has no evidence of even having the records. I sent him a PM about a lot of 17 LPs, and he continued sending emails every few minutes for a couple hours, often 2-5 by the time I managed to reply. I asked him for pictures of the LPs and at first he literally sent me pictures of some individual LPs that turn up with Google Image Search. Some pictures had other LPs in it, he couldn't consistently say what he actually had, and at one point claimed that he couldn't take pictures because they were already boxed up, and he would send me a ton of extra stuff that happened to be in the box.
He also sent me this picture of the "unopened, unplayed" LPs: 5 on the list, plus a Mayhem LP! Looks like they just came off an inkjet printer.http://i.imgur.com/rTujjvz.jpg
His associates posted shady feedback on him, so I checked out the accounts:
-Seedofthestorms posted about forming a band in Quebec, but his IP points to Toms River, NJ just like Frankvonwolfgeist. He has also made most of the updates to Wolfgeist's artist page, including adding his real name as "FJY". Seems to be a different person.
-balderslight is an account registered to firstname.lastname@example.org
, which is also in frankvonwolfgeist's profile.
A quick search gives us enough information that we can avoid the guy.
Frank J. Yuro aka "Frank von Wolfgeist"http://www.metal-archives.com/artists/Wolfgeistemail@example.com@firstname.lastname@example.org
His real name is shown in the email on "The Darkest Hour" distro's website. He told me that all the items he was selling came from his friend's label by this name. His alias is in the email on the other distro link below.http://thedarkesthourdistro.webs.com/thefulldistro.htmhttp://herrwolfgeist.wix.com/forgedinhonour
One of Frank Yuro's profile pictures on Facebook has "Herr Wolfgeist" on it.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =1&theater
