Got ripped off by Don Ross (screen names hellboy/Don R). Details in the following link:

ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=109&t=310744 <--edit to make the link hot - TRG

Anyone know this guy or had dealings with him? I'm calling the Wise county Sheriff tomorrow to see if they can help.

Thanks,

Guy

Another very good reason why I NEVER do gun deals unless they are face to face.

Anyone have any background on this guy? I swear I've heard the name several times in a negative context.

I remember the original can of worms he created. I was amazed at the shit storm that ensued after my first trip to the farm a couple years back.

The Sheriif's office probably has his number on speed dial.

Last time DonR said he had a stroke and that is why he was a thief.
What will be his problem now?

Fucken white trash loser.





I thought he was just a lonely guy, ilikelegs?

I would have at least threatened to kick his ass for the stunt he pulled with you in the parking lot. (Don "played" like he was going to shoot ilikelegs - with a real pistol in his hands)

If he didn't redirect the muzzle immediately and give a heartfelt apology, then the ass-kicking would commence. Yes - even in front of Kelly and the kids.

After I heard of that, I asked that they not contact me again.

Pity - they were really personable folks and I liked them a lot.

Seeing him have the shakes after he did that with me calling his bluff was enough satisfaction for me at the time.



Just pointing out that you were compassionate.


I have a mental image of you grinning with a cigarette hanging out of your mouth - ala Hun Farm pistolas pic.

You are holding a freshly ripped of arm in each hand.

pointing the gun at my gut and said " I ought to shoot you right now for all the trouble you caused me".

I told him to take his best shot and do it quickly. Told him ETH was across the street video taping us and
that TxLewis has him in his cross hairs.

He started saying, where are they? I don't see them.

Then realized I was joking and got the shakes after that.

He put his gun on his passenger seat...I picked it up and dropped the mag out and saw it was loaded.

He was just joking around, but had his wife and kids not been there in the car,
I would have done things a lot differently.


Haven't spoken to the piece of shit since then and do not plan too.




what "trouble" did he think you caused him?

Got a hold of the Wise County Sheriff (Sheriff Walker, no less) today. He was very helpful. He sent an investigator out to Don Ross' house to see if he could get some action-didn't hear back from him by the time I left work.

By chance (?) I got the following email today:

"Sorry for the delay. I have your guns ready to ship to you. My father is in the hospital, and not expected to come out, and the family has been spending most of our time there. I'll try to get them sent out today or tomorrow."

I have heard this I'll ship today or tomorrow thing about 20 times now. We'll see...............

Dang I don't know this guy, but it is almost getting to the point that when you join ARF you should have to sign a waiver that you have been warned about this guy

For the record wife/kids or whatever... anyone pulls a weapon on me will be dropped with the quickness. He was lucky he isnt 6 feet under. He got someone who was much more forgiving than anyone I know would have been.

Gotta remember that this was between friends.

Sorry it read to me that the guy was pissed at ilikelegs and was acting hostile. IMHO he was a very nice guy (ILL that is)
Needless to say I think most people can do without "friends" who point loaded weapons at them

Guy293- Keep at it with the popo...seems like they helped someone else here get a deal done a few months back. Good Luck
Link Posted: 11/30/2005 5:49:59 AM EDT
it's kind of funny how every email someone has posted in the times he's screwed people he says something about how either he is dying, sick, or someone he knows is dying. How this guy is still alive or not in jail is a mystery to me. He'll probably piss off the wrong guy next time, then the world will be a better place.

I'm sure he is. Anyone that would marry her is out of their fricking mind. I went to high school with her, and back then she was one of the scummiest people in the school. I can't imagine what she's like now.

Haven't heard from Don since his email about how he was ready to ship them but his father was dying in the hospital. Sent another email but no response from him. Probably another personal or family crisis keeping him from both responding to me and shipping my guns

Talked with the Sheriff again-evidently both of Don's phones numbers I had aren't working. He said he had an investigator assigned to the case to try to locate Don. I'm guessing this isn't his highest priority case, but things aren't moving very fast.

Guess I'm going to go ahead and file a small claims court claim against him-If the sheriff doesn't locate him I'll hire a private investigator to look him up and serve him.

I'm really, really, really tired of Don Ross.
Link Posted: 12/9/2005 4:16:41 PM EDT
technically, he stole firearms from you, therefore, call the ATFE/FBI and see if you have a criminal case... plus taking funds across state lines makes it a federal offense too.... did you use the postal service too? :D

Link Posted: 12/15/2005 5:59:51 PM EDT
I found a couple of new phone numbers he might be using and sent them to the sheriff. Got an email from the investigator handling the case on Wednesday-he was going to email me today some time with an update and I hadn't heard anything by the time I left work.

Sent Don another couple of emails since his told me that his dad was in the hosptial dying for the 10th time-I get return receipts that he read them but no responses.

Any new updates?
Link Posted: 12/28/2005 6:10:08 PM EDT
I got an email today from Don asking how much of a refund would "make things fair". I contacted the Sheriff's department and they did indeed get in touch with Don and told him he had until the end of this week to "make things right".

Don wanted to refund my money via paypal, but that seems too easy to dispute, cancel, etc. I asked for a postal money order and he sent me an email tonight that he sent payment today via priority mail.

Hopefully I will get my money back, but I won't hold my breath until the check arrives and clears my bank.

I'll post when it arrives and if every goes well. Thanks for all the help and advice to everyone on this site.

It's amazing how quickly he seems to come up with money when the sheriff gives him a ring. After all, he was broke from losing his job due to the stroke he had, then spending all that time with his dying father in the hospital, then waiting for his disability check to arrive, etc.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 3:41:24 PM EDT
Got a postal money order in the mail today-looks legit, so I'll deposit it and see. Looks like the saga is over thanks to the Wise County sheriff's office.

Glad to hear you got your money back. It sucks that it damn near took prosecution for him to do the right thing.

with all the complaints, I wonder if there is a law where he could face charges for selling the same item to multiple people at the same time, never intending to deliver...
