Walker Smith aka landrine mcbride

Got me a scammer boys!

This douche canoe tried selling me some water dragons. I got an email from the scanner email walker Smith uses these days. The same time I got the copy and pasted message from "landrine" (what, did you flip to a random Lord of the rings page and pick a name?)

Google search shows nothing
Facebook says she doesn't exist
Google+ has nothing on the new email account

I'll post the texts, emails, and all the other goodies shortly. Watch your back friends, they just keep trying.

P.S. if you wanna see where they stole their pictures from, go to youtube and check this bad boy out

As one of the other moderators shared with me, "sometimes less is more" when running searches.
If the phone number is: (646) 450-5243
a search of only "5243" is often more effective here on Fauna instead.

It's cool, I got an infraction for being too rude rather than good karma for calling out a scammer. Thanks guys....

He's a little busy beaver, he contacted me today, in response to my wanted ad for Conspics, it's pretty funny he uses the exact wording just changes the species.

Start reading from the bottom up, it's copy & paste emails.

Hello are you still looking for San Esteban Spiny-tailed Iguana (Ctenosaura conspicuosa)

The photos he sent of the conspics belong to Hubert Cumberdale.

Definitely a scam artist.

Avoid like the Plague!
