    I'm ashamed he is from Texas! The scoundrel needs to get what he deserves! We need to give him a necktie party with a short rope and a tall tree. Please catch this bastard!

    I just read a post from Pipestud on Smokers Forums (who Kyle also tried to scam) that Houston law enforcement are closing in on him after his most recent theft. Word is getting around, too. DoverPipes cross- posted his warning on Tamp & Puff and Brothers of Briar as well. Good job, Dover!

    I replied to a post on another forum where this guy says he's a soldier and he and his comrades are running short of tobacco.
    This guys address has me a bit worried, along with his name. He goes by "frozen northern".
    Here's the addy:

    Kyle Cooper
    387ESPTS/CE
    APO AE 09855

    "Somewhere in the sand".

    This sound funny or am I just being paranoid?

    You would think "he and his comrades" would have families and friends to solve the problem, no?

    Yeah, you'd think so. Something just doesn't feel right.

    As for Mr. Black, I traded some tobacco with him a couple years ago before all this scamming went down. The trade worked out well for both parties. Maybe he's returned to set the hook. Hmm....

    I looked up that APO, and it's in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. For both my own sake and the soldier's, I think I'll keep my nose clean and not try and ship tobacco to a country with an oppressive, barbaric, religious regime like that. It's probably illegal over there, and apparently you can't even get it from the PX.

    Address is legit. But honestly, as much as we may want to help out our troops, quite a few e-trailers ship to APO for free. That on top of making a paycheck that is tax free, plus bonuses for hazardous duty, they could pick up a few samplers.

    As it has been mentioned, friends and family should be the ones helping out for a situation like this.

    He got me in a trade on another forum. he pops up now and then on different forums offering to make trades. he keeps your stuff and never sends what he promises to you. He is the only person that has ever got me as most pipers are honest but guys like him make some not trust others on the forums.
