Through the course of my investigation, I discovered more shenanigans, as well as a link to something more insidious.
Brother Stern's profile:
Stern's email is email@example.com
No associated Facebook account & Google search pulled up nothing.
Precious' email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Facebook for that email is http://www.facebook.com/precious.brumley
(Note, PLEASE do not contact or harass Precious. I suspect he just used her email address. I have messaged her on Facebook already, myself.)
Oh, but wait...
In one of Precious' trade threads (now archived for posterity) "she" posted a link to her Photobucket account.
Let's take a ook at Precious' PBucket link:
Why does this matter? Take note of the last bit of that link (/Snaffu420/).
Now, I know what you're thinking. There's no member here with that ID and no history in any threads of that ID being problematic. You'd be right if you kept your information to just Bartertown:
http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/po ... 27066.page
(Note the title of the thread)
On DakkaDakka he's accused of scamming people as Dashootyestgit & snaffu420. Check that thread over. It's 5 pages (as of now) full of complaints & lists of scammed models.
I've culled the following information on him so far and am hoping to get more:
Ebay account:David Gibson
3503 Marvyn Parkway
Opelika, AL 36804
http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d ... llFeedback
Using that information, I've found this Facebook profile:
http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php? ... 0627207114
His profile currently shows him "Married to Precious Johnson" and links to the same profile linked above.
I've been unable to find David's phone number, but I've located this:
That is the mobile home park where his address is:Oakhaven
3503 Marvyn Pkwy
Opelika, AL 36804
Phone: (334) 745-0116

Here are some of his neighbors (Note: he's not listed):

I sent the following message to Precious:
Hi, Precious. You don't know me, but I thought that you should be aware that David Gibson is using your name and email address, as well as multiple email addresses of his own, to trade game materials (Warhammer 40K miniatures, etc. - I presume you know what those are.) online.
He is being accused by numerous people of making off with their models and/or money and not providing his side of the trade or sale to them (i.e.; theft).
On the site where I am an administrator he used his information and yours (your email address that is attached to this Facebook account, which is how I located you) to open two separate accounts. The only reason to do that on my site (bartertown.com) is if you intend on ripping people off, since the site is solely dedicated to trading and selling game materials.
If you would like, I can provide links to a page on my site and a page on another that show the information we've amassed on him, as well and the numerous rip offs he's accused of.
Any help you could provide, as his wife, would be hugely appreciated by ALL involved. There is discussion of contacting the police, having him arrested, and pressing Federal Mail Fraud charges.
Thank you for your help.
That's what I've got so far. I'll update this thread as I get more.
