View Full Version : oobuck is a thief !!!!

January 12, 2009, 11:54 AM
oobuck (Michael Avila aka Michael Ayala aka Michael Aleman) of Cicero, IL or Chicago, IL has ripped off at least three of us here for $275 each for 16 Pmags. He used three different names and addresses in his replies to the various individuals he has scammed since last summer.

Names used: Michael Avila, Michael Ayala, and Michael Aleman

IP addresses and e-mail:
Mike in Chicago ( (working on it)
unknown at this time ( (working on it)
Mike Ayala in Chicago IL ( ([email protected])

Mailing addresses and email:
Michael Aleman
4845 S Western Blvd.
Chicago IL 60609

Michael Aleman
2806 S 50th Av.
Cicero IL 60804

Michael Avila ([email protected])
1533 S.Laramie Ave
Cicero, IL 60804

He has perpetuated his fraud on at least two internet boards. See links.

Link to original TFL add below.


Link to Sturmgewehr add below.


Hopefully the mods will at least deal with this guys account before he gets to someone else.

Anybody seen the mods in awhile???

Any advice on how to proceed would be great. This POS has stolen $825 from the three of us so far, don't want to see anybody else get taken.

All individuals taken by this guy are encouraged to send me an e-mail with your contact info, description of items posted for sale and your monetary loss, and the screen name, e-mail address, payment sent to name and payment sent to mailing address of ripoff seller to me so I can start compiling a data base of victims.

I believe our collective complaint against this guy with Illinois state fraud investigators will carry much more weight than individual complaints to the USPS.

Help me shut this weasel d**k down.

Keep your pants on,everybody will get a refund please check your pm.

Refund? One wonders why he sold the same 16 magazines to 3 different people in the first place?

Actually I don't wonder. He thought he could get away with it......

January 12, 2009, 05:18 PM
I almost jumped on the mags too when he first posted them....glad I didn't as well.

I've been lucky, never been ripped off yet (knock on wood)and I do alot of trading/buying/selling online. :cool:

January 12, 2009, 05:19 PM
You and me both........

Just found this Thread. I got screwed as well. You guys use USPS MO? We can contact USPS LE to pursue this guy for intentional fraud.

Email me [email protected]

Your USPS "refund" # is not active at this time.

If I am wrong about you, I will post a retraction in this public forum.

If not, I will post the contents of the PM reply I just sent to you.

Make it right with me, 25birdman, and srryan1.

Or prepare to be outed with your various name and addresses, plus ISP on every firearm related board I belong to. That is most of them. This info will also be forwarded to the USPS postal fraud section and the Chicago PD.

Make it right.

Screw the refund, you guys need to see who is in the fight, oobuck probably has "issues" that will prevent him from refunding what he already has taken from us.

Copy of PM:

Re: Pmags



Your tracking number is not valid at this time.

If you are telling the truth about having two sets of these to sell, why I am not receiving one of them, as I was the original poster to respond with payment to your add.

If I receive mags as agreed, or a full refund, I will withdraw my complaint posts regarding you.

At this point, I still beleive you are a weasel d**k who is negotiating for time before the postal inspector, hopefully with Chicago PD in tow, shows up at one of the two addresses and names for payment you have used to perpetuate your scam. I wonder what the Chicago PD will think of you selling mags whose capacity makes them illegal to posess where you live. I would never had ordered if I knew you couldn't have them to begin with. Maybe BATFE would be interested in your activities. I hear the weather in the Cook County jail is beautiful this time of year.

Make it right, to me, 25birdman, and srryan1 or I will make this my mission to pursue you wherever you go on the internet. I have computer friends tracking your ISP address as we speak. You, your family, girlfriend, public library, wherever you are internet based at will not be able to hide. This information will be added to the postal fraud complaint.

Deliver goods as promised, or prepare for your internet scam life to get more interesting and less profitable.

Count on it needle d**k.

Sincerely, rezman

Imagine my surprise 25birdman also posted payment sent.

Sent PM and email to you regarding this yesterday. No reply.

Please reply to this post ASAP. It could be you had two sets of these to sell.

It could be you sold the same set twice.

LMK what is going on, Kelly

Don't mean to interrupt, but check that tracking number again. USPS is kind of slow to update the status; it's caused me some angst before (totally unrelated to "oobuck")

January 13, 2009, 06:22 AM
Yeah it usually takes a full day until the USPS confirmation numbers show any information.

But anyway. Finding out this guy lives in Chicago adds a whole new twist to this, doesn't it? Selling mags he can't even legally own? He never had them. He thought he could just take money from honest people and get away with it. I hope he rots.

Update to add more info on this situation.

The del cofirm number is now active.

We also have another individual who was taken for a ride on the Sturmgewehr board for mini 14 mags, with payment sent to a Michael Aleman at a third Chicago mailing address.

I will have your ISP info soon Michael.

Make it right to everybody you have taken money from, and I will go back in my cave.

Otherwise, following you will become my #1 hobby.

Post this guys name and address(es) so no one else gets taken. Screen names are easy to change.

Any advice on how to proceed would be great.

PM sent to the OP

That's it - all further communications must use email.

rezman - I understand your ire and your frustration, but that is no excuse to use TFL as your cursing/sounding board. Your most recent post has been deleted, I'm not even going to try to edit it.
