Please avoid Mr Tony Gibson from Marshall Islands...

Please be aware of Mr Tony Gibson of Tony Gibson Supply LTD. He has used a few names, including eric peterson from American Samoa a few months back. This time he's Tony Gipson from Marshall Islands. His scam is pretty simple, he pretty much buys whatever you have at full price and then asks you to contact his freight forwarder for a shipping quote, usually an AOL email with a generic shipping company name (TNX freight, etc) The fake freight company will give you a quote, usually around $3500. Tony then pays you that amount plus the price of your equipment with the expectation you will pay the freight forwarder via bank wire the $3500. Obviously you will never see the bank wire money again.
Credit card is stolen and you will get charged back. Both times I dealt with him, the billing address is in Tennessee. Please be on the look out for him, I'm sure he will be back with another name and another stolen card.

He contacted me as Eric Peterson from American Samoa a few months ago. He wanted to buy a piece of equipment he knew nothing about and wanted to pay with a stolen credit card. I told him to pay with Paypal. He refused. Bye bye Eric.

Pretty much anybody who contacts you with a similar request is operating this scam.

Had a similar thing happen to me by Tony Gipson. Wanted to buy some $6K worth of scientific equipment I had listed on eBay. Took it down, and sent Gipson a Paypal Request for Payment. He told me he would have his shipper come and get the stuff. However, he never paid and never responded after he told me he was having trouble paying with Paypal. I can only think that he might have been using a stolen credit card. Gipson used this number 408-625-0248 out of San Jose, CA.
After the no contact from him, I canceled the eBay invoice and relisted the stuff on eBay.
