I can’t send you a private message because you don’t have a paid subscription but I have a lot of information. If you pass along your email or precinct number I am happy to callHello, I am an officer currently working a mail fraud and theft by deception case. If you have any further information or feel you have been scammed by either of these individuals please contact me via the private messages here. I will gladly provide my credentials and case information.
If you can have anyone you know who has been scammed contact me, I would appreciate it. I can send you my contact information privately.Not to beat a dead horse but Jimmy Lovejoy has been known as a notorious scammer on FB for a while. It would be in everyone’s best interest to join EDC Deal or No Deal (FBs GBU). Used to be scammers ran from BF to go scam on FB/IG; now it appears that the inverse is happening.
I have extensive communications with James “Jimmy” Lovejoy and made a deal to buy 5 knives from him. [snip] I was very focused on getting the package out and getting a tracking number. He was in communication with me and provided me with the tracking number.
Package showed delivered or out for delivery and by sheer luck of circumstance I am away and, against my better judgement, he had begged me to release part of the funds.
Package later than day, only has 2 of the 5.
I immediately reached out to Jimmy who said he thought THEY were supposed to arrive at the same time. “They're in 2 boxes both shod have been delivered together though.” This was the first time there was any mention of a mystery second package. I asked him for tracking number for the newly discovered of second package. I asked him why he didn’t tell me there was a second package and why when I asked for tracking info he didn’t provide it to me. His answer “I thought incase the hold wasn't lifted or there was some bs with getting it I'd have something to fall back on” which makes absolutely no sense because he would have already sent the package and delivery to me would have been out of his control.
Don't just file a claim with Paypal or just your credit card company, take it to the US Postal Inspector before seriously entertaining a trip to Georgia to local police.No harm in giving it a shot. I do think I did part on credit. I really appreciate that you all responded and engaged the way you did. I am happy to answer any other questions you have or any other suggestions. If there is a way to communicate with him as admins to just inquire about this claim and see his side, maybe he’ll respond to you. I would be very happy to have read this all wrong but there’s really no excuse for him being deceitful with shipping and non communicative when especially when things seem wrong. As they say if it looks like a duck and quacks like one you’re dealing with a scumbag.
