    Scammer Alert, Dutch guy Wilco Stap scamming toy and comic collectors
    Several toy collectors, some members of SB, as well as comic/magazine collectors have recently been scammed buy this guy in trades. He often gains trust by completing initial trades then stealing the second batch of traded items. Reports of this guy scamming for over a decade on various collecting forums, including VHS, books, etc, have been uncovered. The packages have been sent to Enkhuizen, Noord Holland the Netherlands. Those of us who've been scammed are trying to locate him or compile information to make public in the area and provide to local police. He's scammed people from the US, Canada, Germany, France, and likely all over the world. If you have any leads or have been a victim please feel free to contact me! We are focusing on making info public on IG in hopes of finding someone who knows him. Look here for more info: https://www.instagram.com/monstaislandczar/?hl=en
    I doubt we'll recover goods or money, or actually find this scumbag, but our main goal is to stop him from scamming our community as he has hit a lot of folks over the past month.

    Thanks for letting this be known, I had no idea about this dude. It’s sad that someone would do this... gaining trust through legit trades and then pulling a huge scam is pretty despicable.
    So does he sell his stolen goods through that eBay handle? Is there an option to report someone for selling stolen goods? Maybe they’d halt his account or something... then again, this is eBay we’re talking about.
    All I can say is he better not show his face at any toy shows, I’m sure a lot of people will want to deck him in the face :lol:
