Jeff Jones alert
Posted by Anonymous on Monday, March 3, 2003 6:43 PM
Armorama.com has banned Jeff Jones for unethical business practices. He has recently been found to be using the alias "James Johnson" and "Dylan Jones". The email address he has listed is jamesjohnson@ incamail.com. For those of you who choose to avoid doing business with Mr Jones, these names should be added to you watch lists.

Going by the handle Flightsimm now. I got him all fired up when I suggested what I'm about to relate. Find out where your bad apple resides and use the city/state as your red flag! He can change his name a million times but every rat has a hiddy hole! Traverse City, MI

I got his list once. I thought his prices were to high. I have never had any contact with him again. I am glad I didn't with all of this negative feedbacks.

Never heard of the guy, but from this thread I can only gather that he tries to sell kits on forums at or even a little higher than regular prices.
From the opinions presented here, however, it seems that his "crimes" (watch out! Don't wanna get sued!) must be much worse than that!
Is he really that bad?

Well Ill put it this way DONT DEAL WITH THIS GUY! His problem is more than just high prices....its receiving money without ever sending the kits promised. What absolutely amazes me is that the people who have been ripped by him in the past never filed mail fraud charges. Mail fraud is a felony and federal offense at that. In some of my net searching thanks to a few others plus some stuff Ive dug up on my own....I have yet to find a single good thing about this guy!

Thanks, Chris!
I figured the rascal must be pretty nasty to have elicited such a harsh reaction!
I'll certainly avoid him!
