No that he is in the news an his so called "reputation" is in the spotlight for all the local hams an non hams to see, hopefully maybe now the FCC and FBI will do something and put an end to his shenanigans for good.   Makes you wonder why the FCC won't revoke his license instead of keeping granting him new calls like they been doing. They got to been aware of his scam stunt from the numerous people he scammed that filed complaints about him ???

I think a extended stay in a nice 8x10 grey room is well needed for him and his wife as she's just as guilty as he is.

The FCC won't revoke his call until there've been many, many more complaints filed and proven.  After all, look at K1MAN in Maine.  His licence is still up on the renewal list under 'administrative review,' so he's still on the air!

Hey!  Now 650 views in just over 27 hours!

Well guys, it's up to US to do this. I can't really go into detail, but lets just say there are many "agencies" and "bureaus" looking into this. I can't tell you how happy I am to see this going forward, and all I ever asked of him was to send my property back. Seriously, I even said I would reimburse him for the shipping. Either you're the dumbest person alive, or seriously are such a career criminal that you take the risk, no matter the outcome.


I for one say we make a petition. I've already heard about 50-60 people have already contacted the FCC and ARRL. Immediate revocation of his license would be a START, but that still won't stop him from conning people out of property. If you're going to go after him, go after everything. Throw the book at him to make an example.

remember, make sure to repost the news link on EVERY possible media outlet you can, share on your facebook account, retweet....ANYTHING YOU CAN DO....Send it to other news agencies. Information is power. This should be a test of our teamwork.

Local News: An online email newspaper in a town of 6,700.
OTOH, him being in a small town is a good thing.
MUCH more likely to be known and recognized.
Well, it's a start!
I've been reading ham and radio forums
for a long time and this guy is almost as notorious
as whats-his-name over at Radio Mart. And he
has the temerity to post photos of himself on the
Net with his quad runners, motorcycles, and
other boy toys.....no doubt helped funded by ill
gotten gains from hard working hams.

This a**bite makes me puke.
I hope and pray he gets what's coming to him.
The fellows scammed won't get their money or gear back,
but it'd be nice to see Pinson behind bars for a few years,
ending up some big dude's BGFF!  ;D

Scamming through the mail is a Federal felony,
too bad the Federal prisons are far, far nicer than the
state prisons!

See if they'll pick up the story; it's a bigger paper.

Anyone going to help with this?

UPDATE:

1. He's still in the news
2. until he returns property, his amazon and ebay accounts are suspended.
3. possible grand larceny charges


More to come i'm sure. Many hams are now involved making this some together, and thank you for that. He's pissed off enough people to become famous because of it.

And think, all I wanted was my silly iPad back  ::)

Glad to see that ebay and amazon finally stepped up an suspended his accounts hope they suspended his wifes accounts while they were at it. Guys like this guy are a disgrace to the ham world!  He deserves what ever happens to him from the FCC and FBI and any one else that goes after him.

Yes, his wife's accounts have also been suspended.  :)

Awesome.  Love your follow-through.  If only more would follow your lead and stand up to thieves and scammers.

Update. I should be getting my iPad back today, most likely damaged by Don. Still though, I am glad to see it come back to me. Still not getting my hopes up because he most likely has packed a box with dirt. I'm sure he will say "oops wrong box" or something clever like that. All I care is that Don and his wife have lost all capability to do ANY online selling on Ebay, Amazon and other sites. He's now under investigation for grand larceny. I said it would catch up to you Don.

I would not have gotten this far if it was not for the Credit Bureau of Ypsilanti. They are amazing.

We will see what FEDEX brings in today. Hopefully it's not ticking.

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

If you have the capability and a bit of time, make a video of the package from its delivered and unopened state, through unsealing the package and examining the contents.  If all is fine, you don't need the video.

If there's a serious problem as you suspect there could be, you'll have evidence of it.

Already ready for that. Good thing the guy running the Bureau is also a long time detective and friend of mine. All bases are covered.

 ;D

Yep, not suprised one bit. My totally brand new iPad arrived, dented to hell, but working. HOWEVER Mr Donald Pinson literally decided do take a crap IN THE BOX, ruining the case. Thanks Don, you are a worthless chunk of human waste. But, at least now I have my property back, and you and the wife are now completely shut down.............permanently. By the way, that's a criminal offence as well. Enjoy your time in washington, because thats the only state you'll be selling in. Your online days are over, forever.

I still am laughing about it though. I did call it. Check my post from earlier today! I said there would be a suprise inside. Too bad Don decided to mail his brain with my iPad.  ;D :D ;D :D

Don's email to me after I got my iPad back- dented, won't charge and almost started a fire.  Thank god I didn't charge it overnight.   As far as I'm concerned, this was deliberately done to start a fire.  He is a terrorist in my opinion.  I have 2 children.  What if there was a fire?


your up in the night! never struck anything with a hammer! taped it on a bed rail to try and get it to work. I knew you would not take your comments back as well as I knew you would not have reimbursed for shipping. you send out a no good item and then make a big deal about it. A police officer you say well cool! then he can be my witness I sent it back. don't have any idea what your talking about for shit never sent you no shit. anyway have a good life...new you were a flake from the start.


Sorry for his total lack of English.  "Taped" is "tapped" in my  dictionary.   "New" should be "knew" This thing is dented all over. 

This guy is worthless.

Don and his wife can now have the luxury of NEVER having another online account on eBay or amazon, furthermore his $4000 in PayPal is seized. Good luck selling in a town of 6000 residents. After this you'll probably be traded for packs of cigarettes in the "grey bar" motel.

Sending raw feces through the postal service is a federal offense, and in today's political/social climate, could be considered a terroristic act, along with intentionally sending a charged, but damaged lithium polymer battery.

Human fecal samples are sent through the mail for medical 
testing all the time, albeit properly packaged and marked.
I have received these "Occult Stool Sample" collection kits
with a return mailer from my Health Care Provider for years.
(Occult Stool is a blood-in-stool test)

It MIGHT be a violation of 18 USC ยง 1716 - Injurious articles as nonmailable
But I haven't waded through the boilerplate. Have at it.

Mailing somebody a turd could be construed as "terrorist threat",
harassment, or stalking.......IF it puts the recipient in a "state
of fear of bodily injury".

"Mr." Pinson certainly is an illiterate scumbag. Give him hell.
