Vince Barbagallo aka VinnyBigBird, aka Alan, aka all of the names you see in my title.......Has been ripping people off by the thousands since 2005. His game is slick, but he's getting sloppy. He'll change his name soon enough, but he's stolen hundreds of thousands from his victims and is still at it using ebay to sell Industrial Machinery, such as hydryalic presses and large band saws. His old scheme was to "sell" Fusion Fiber Splicer equipment. Require payment up front, never accepting credit cards unlerss he was scamming a new employer victim, always wire was his preference. He'd never ship or ship a unless broken unit, then take the $ and run. He's been doing this out of MN, MI, NY, PA, OH and who knows where else.
NEW EBAY ID: Machinerytech and email attached is firstname.lastname@example.org also used to own "American Splicing, LLC" where he took some people for literally a few hundred grand. Unfortunately, he's moved around as he always does, from state to state leaching off of the women he's conned as well.... sad.
He's using divorce, "mental hospitalization" and contemplation of suicide to spark empathy from the people he's stolen from. Vince is admitting to stealing from and promising to pay us back, even lying and saying he's seeking "legal counsel" to find out his rights, etc etc. How can someone steal SO much from SO many and still continue to operate?! It is sad that he has pushed us all to this point, but we need RESOLVE!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT buy from or sell to this person. If a person named "Alan" is following the same M.O. please realize that it's Vince. From the dozens of people I've encountered, we are calculating several HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars stolen.
PLEASE THINK BEFORE YOU TRANSFER YOUR $!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
