this is so ridiculous it is unfortunately hilarious to a point.
i joined BO forums to get more insight into collecting after a 6 year hiatus, but to see how much the industry has "changed" to the point you see someone like this that claims they have a brother have a fall, is now getting worse, and having medical bills that are up to 22k when in canada its free to a point, and you don't have to pay right off the bat, especially if that person is still getting treatment... sigh.

if the person is hurt, prayers still go out to him. kudos to rookie fan though, i would not have sat tight at the age of 17 for $400; u did some awesome research.

Wow...now that you make that connection...I have something to add...

So I had a deal in place with my_omni the day directly before his 'accident' for all of my preferred swatch booklets...he seemed like a good dude, I even turned down another offer for them (or some of them) because I wanted to give him time to get better and still have a shot at them. Long story short Lebron(whatever the number is) contacted me a week or do ago asking for those same cards...I didnt think anything of it since people are interested in those, but now with all the other evidence it seems like something fishy is going on...

I'm actually placing all preferred booklets in a corridor towards my son's bedroom.....

like a hall of the greats or something hehe...i hope you could help me out..thanks man..'

wow.. i am guessing his "son" is imaginary aswell,hoping you would be extra kind on the prices because you would be led on to believe they were gonna go to his kid I wonder how many people he has taken advantage of with his clever claims?

IF THIS GUY IS TRYING TO GET MONEY FOR HIS BROTHER, THEN WHY DID HE AGREE TO BUY MY ELUSIVE AUTO SET FOR $175. WHY IS HE BUYING A SET OF BASICALLY SCRUB AUTOS AND SPENDING $175. THEN HE PUTS ME ON HOLD FOR 2 DAYS AND SAYS HE SPENT THE MONEY ON ANOTHER CARD?

Since everyone else wants proof of everything in the basketball forums, why aren't we demanding copies of the medical bills?
Because you won't get them. They don't exist as we have universal healthcare and the govt pays the bills.

Total scam

Yup the guy posted about his accident on the 20th of September and somehow he got the lebron account set up on the 20th of September as well. Why wasn't his brother with him at the hospital watching over instead of making an account on BO the same day his brother get's in an accident?

Also he somehow joined a group break when there are expenses to be paid? He made more purchases then selling when again why is he even on the site when your brother is getting worse daily?

Lastly, serious injuries financially have a way of working out especially in Europe and Canada with the healthcare system and didn't he mention he was injured at work? So shouldn't there be workers comp and insurance to kick in?

What a piece of #@#@#@#@.. Funny how scammers always have brothers when they get caught. Probably just a pale virgin nerd that's balls haven't dropped. Sad

Yeah he did pay him. But with all the new stories released the guy is a flat out scammer. He made up the story and has tried to lie his way out of this. Ban his IP and his neighborhood so he never comes back.

This is what I think might have happened:

Omni really did hurt his back and never received the card, but his little brother did, and just hid the fact from his big brother who really is in the hospital with back troubles. I suspect that's why the lebron623 immediately paid for the item (plus extra) after his shady actions got found out by the OP. It just doesn't sound like a pure scam to me because usually in a normal scam the person who lost out doesn't get their money back so easily. Thoughts?

You are from CA you might be his cousin.. Statements invalid.


Listen this clown said he needed money for bills, and there have been multiple people post messages where "Lebron" is trying to buy lots, autos etc.

Are you trying to defend him and make excuses like the other guy from CA?? If you aren't then obviously you wouldn't be. Do you people puff out your chest when your typing to seem tough??

That's possible, but that's not the only possibility.

Shaun941 you must be a internet troll, and if you aren't and truly think this way, I feel sorry for you bro.
