Re: [yoink] Dealer Problem [In reply to] Can't Post

My understanding is that there are a few people who are trying to take him to court.

I am considering the option, as is a friend of mine.
For this to have any chance, we need everyone directly affected by him so we can lodge a case together. Numbers always make the case stronger.

What do we hope to get out of this? Well I know we'll get nothing because he has (apparently) jack shit.

But I might get some kind of satisfaction that the Australian justice system isn't entirely f*&$%d.

I started a new job, moved away from home, family and friends for more money to fund this rig. Whilst there I had my house broken into, had possessions stolen, had my bike stolen and been violated.

Many of these things were going to be sold to or used as collateral to fund my rig. The mountains I moved, the promises I made and the assistance I received from locals to make a dream of mine come true, only to have this grub take everything of mine (literally) and then ask for more and keep giving lame ass excuses.

So what I'm after is for some way to justify what I lost was worth it. Unfortunately he won't go to jail, he will get a two year suspended sentence with a parole period of 18 months following, but it will be better than him having a good time enjoying the spoils of my money.

In reply to:
Posting the address from an anonymous username in the hope that someone else will actually do something with it based on nothing more than your word is the height of cowardice on your part and would be the height of stupidity on someone elses.

I'm pretty sure the police know where he lives...

I really really doubt you'd be saying the same thing if you'd lost 2 - 8.5 $ grand.. Pirate

To the person who gave out the address - good step in the right direction, we need all the info we can get..

This bring me some level of relief knowing that Gary spent the money and didn't squander it on something like gambling.... Hookers and blow are legit business expenses.

Re: [Emu] Dealer Problem [In reply to] Can't Post

The problem with painting his address all over the internet is you make yourself a target if something were to happen to him, e.g. Gary gets murdered, you may have given someone the opportunity to perform a crime.

Also it is encouraging people to go to his place to 'sort out business' affecting the 'people' that may be in the process of coming to some sort of an agreement with him....

Plus it's just plain petty bullshit that a two year old would do, have some balls and face up. Don't lower yourself to his level, because he'll beat you with experience.

I'm not saying everyone should break into his apartment with baseball bats with nails and try to sort this the old fashioned way...

I'm just saying it's a good thing that someone is providing an address..

As far as I understand, beforehand nobody knew where he was hiding? So why's this a bad thing?

!
Allow me to elaborate on this. Anyone who has had their house broken into, or had a possession stolen will understand the sickening feeling that comes with such an event.

In my case, it upset me more than when my Grandmother died, and she was my ENTIRE world, until I found skydiving.

So I pretty much started a COMPLETELY new life to fund this hole left from her death, only to once again have my world completely and utterly destroyed again.

So yes, I felt violated, it felt like I had been raped of my chance to once again be happy.

It would be all to easy to take matters into my own hands and see that he can never walk or talk again, but I'm not going to jail for that scum piece of dirt.

Re: [Bildo] Dealer Problem [In reply to] Can't Post

I had to drop my studies, move to a different country and work a shit job in order to pay off the rig..

The only difference is that I'm a bit more lucky, I got my container + reserve, but no main canopy, so I only got partially fucked, but hey 2000 $ is not just some pennies and I feel screwed up pretty much the same as the people who lost their entire rigs!

One thing I learned hard, never trust DZ.com and their reviews of "good and bad" deals. PiratePiratePirate

And yet, still nobody knows where he is "hiding". We do know, however, the address and appearance of the bungalow where someone with a boat in the driveway lives, because an anonymous asshole posted the info online.

Is that Gary's bungalow? I don't know. What I do know is that it is not only incredibly childish to post this information online, it will probably constitute sufficient cause for prosecution if anything malicious happens at that home and/or to the people who live there.

Frankly I'm very surprised the mods haven't removed the post. Seems to me, given their strict axe-weilding ways, they would have removed that potentially injurious posting soon after it was published.

I feel badly for those who were ripped off by KK and Gary, but keep it in the courts where it belongs.

Unstable7, you're not just an anonymous asshole moron. You're just a garden variety asshole moron.

The OP is not complaining about their life choices. They are just saying that they have an tremendous intrinsic value attached to the funds that they were cheated out of.

classifying one's choices as bad is an extremely subjective thing to do.

Pretty much what likestojump said.

Overall I'm not complaining about my life choices, nobody forced me yes, but it's a huge bummer that I and a lot of others had to go through similar things just to be screwed in the end...

Re: Dealer Problem [In reply to] Can't Post

To Gary aka KKrew:
Since you've stolen from skydivers, I will share the ancient wisdom of the steps to restore your reputation in the skydiving world:
1 - Go take a vacation in south africa for a while
2 - Get job at sunpath
3 - Test new reserve container and get new TSO on their dime.
4 - When sunpath gets pissed, quit and open gear manufacturing shop with your shiny new TSO'd rig.
5 - Sell rigs and teach rigging.

Follow these steps and you will soon be loved again.

Angelic

Clearly not as sharp in the mind as you are sharp in the tongue.

What pains me sparky is skydivers not getting behind other jumpers when something like this happens. Yeah sure the majority do, but there's always the element of bottom feeders that trawl these forums looking to feed off others' misfortunes.

It probably makes you feel superior in intelligence to berate those who have lost cash from this inept dealer sparky, but I see no reason why a community minded jumper would get online and have a go at those that have lost out. This doesn't happen in any other sport I'm a part of and I'm amazed by what I've seen come out here.

You clearly have nothing to add to this thread so do us all a favour and pest around some other thread that interests you more than that short, sharp boost of self-esteem you get when you lay a boot into the downtrodden.

That is all.

More anonymous remarks from the peanut gallery.

Since no one else has come forward on being touched up I see no point in pursuing it.

I'm in the market for a complete rig with a 160-170 main.
average size/weight male.

Willing to spend 3k. Who can help out?
Im in NSW, AUS.
