    Hi Mark,

    I’m tangled up in this whole BTTW fiasco. Sold him Shiro Neon for $565 via f&f. I see in mid January you were in a trade with him (Shiro Neon for a Karroll KC3), did you receive the Neon from him? Or did he receive the Neon from you? Asking because I would gladly receive a Neon from him instead of the money he said he’ll repay me with. If not just to expedite the recoupment process. Thanks.

    Yeah, he got the Neon. Not sure if he still has it though with all the raffles he seems to be doing. I hope he makes you whole though. Good luck!

    Nothing is ever going to change with Heath Helton. He is just an out of control sociopath, that feels entitled to waste other people’s time, money, and resources.

    Yet another example of heath helton and his ways . Messed over all these people, can't pay them back, but has the funds to buy new knives . He is openly displaying it for all to see on reddit, but they refuse to call him on it . Unreal stupidity .

    Well, at least it’s cemented my resolve to avoid reddit.

    POS.

    It would seem so. I'd really like to see the proof he was supposed to provide those fools about this whole fiasco. I doubt he came through with it and clearly they didn't follow through with re-enstating his ban.

    Never posted here before but Heath Helton and people like Heath Helton make me a little angry. Fortunately Heath Helton and people like Heath Helton won't deter me from participating and buying/selling in this amazing community.

    I love that when I Google Heath helton, this thread pops up first thing....even before images. Lol. What a piece of garbage. Heath Helton, if you're reading this....which I am sure you are.....you need to take your tiny balls to the bank and start sending money orders out to all these people you have screwed. One day, you're going to run into one of these guys and pay the hard way.

    The type of person that has the time, money, and means to go after Heath Helton, is also street wise and savvy enough, not to get involved with him in the first place.
    He seems to prey on a younger and immature crowd, that has limited resources to pursue restitution, when wronged.

    I'd like to share with everyone involved that despite the fact BTTW has been inactive on Reddit for 2 weeks he still continues to private message our users asking about sales, trades, and buying. Most recently as of 5 hours ago. Take it as you will.

    Maybe (hopefully) his market is shrinking due to this thread and the word getting out. (I can't remember if there was any info on other sites besides reddit.)

    Guess who I just saw on Massdrop's discussion page for the latest FerrumForge colab? Three guesses. ;). His comment to the moderator? "Just send me a proto already!". Any guesses as to what he mostly buys there? Sure buys a bunch of new knives for someone that owes so many people, and swears he's paying them back.

    I hope so. Seems his only safe haven now is at knife_raffles with the rest of the... well, lol. Only reason I haven't banned the name yet is because I haven't had it confirmed that red flair will show through a banned account. Instead he just has red flair so anytime he messages someone they message us to see what's up. That's how I found out he's still messaging people despite being inactive. If Reddit admins confirm that flair will show through banning he's gone. But even being banned he can still lurk and PM.
