Watch out for that Steve guy from Australia that Chad mentions.
His former e-mail address was: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have no 100% proof, but it looks he also used to be registered under "Dexter" on www.dragonslairfans.com
He has the same avatar there:http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?action=profile;u=46
Same first name, same age, same location, same avatar = too many "coincidences".
He seemed genuine enough on the Dragonslairfans forum, very active beginning 2009. I was looking for someone that could vectorize my Puckman CPO for reproduction. He took up the challenge and even also offered to do the Euro Joust marquee for me. There were some preview files posted and things looked to be very bright in the beginning.
So, since he was collecting all home version of DL and SA, I knew some Jaguar version for sale here and thought I would send them as an advanced "Thank You". Shipped them in May and he received the discs. Proof here:http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=628.msg6517#msg6517
All in all it cost me about 60 Euro's to buy and ship those games which seemed fair as a compensation for his hours put into the artwork.
Next, comms become more rare. Promises, promises and more promises, but no files. The Joust "was ready" but I never received the ready file when I asked him to mail it.
Then in august he posts that he would like to know how much his collection of SA and DL home versions is worth.http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=913.msg7887#msg7887
I'm appalled because I send him the Jaguar versions in may, and now in august he wants to sell the complete collection, before I even got the artwork ? So responds that he was "checking the water".....yeah, right.
Next comes up this thread, another guy (from Australia) also screwed by a certain Steve from Australia (ding-ding!):http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=1007.0
I heard some things. One moment he was moving house but he had left behind his PC and the files were on it some thousands miles away. Who moves house and doesn't move their PC ?
Next I hear he's recently been divorced, but from the OP of the last mentioned thread I hear through e-mail he has been divorced several years ago.
Anyway, it could be just a sad story, but just beware of him !
Here's a pic of the guy:
He's hasn't been posting to the Dragonslairforum, but his last login was on October 01, 2009, 11:52:59 AM
