I researched this guy's background online but didn't find anything of serious concern. Sorry - this is way OT but it might be of interest to whoever got taken by him. His Facebook profile... http://facebook.com/profile.php/… Santa Barbara County civil court records list his name in several cases. But the criminal court records aren't accessible online, so I can't determine if he was ever charged with theft or fraud. http://www.sbcourts.org/pubindex/CIVILindex.php And this last site is... odd. http://cpixel.com/searchp.asp/… He's does a lot of chatting on gaming websites, home electronics sites, and also on GardenWeb, under the username warrengk. If nothing else, at least now you can put a face with the name.
