Not even on the first 6 pages.
Perhaps one of the mods can change the thread title to reflect that Nick Rainey has scammed people ITT.

re: MI_turtle WSOP Main Event 1.25 Mark-up - ITT Nick Rainey scams people for thousands of $.

Situation sucks obviously.

I've talked with him a couple times in the last month or so. My best guess is he pays you after he moves to Canada & gets a few months of solid grinding in. Last I heard he planned to move in September...

I wish he was better at keeping you guys posted/being more straightforward. But I'd be surprised if he doesn't pay up by the end of the year. Maybe not the news you hoped for but when you're waiting on $ like this I figure hearing something is better than hearing nothing. GL all.

BF-- Which mod confirmed Funnerwithbunner was not bunner and changed the undertitle? Sorry, but its still bothering me that a 2p2 mod knew who this was and never said anything or made notes on the account etc..

It wasn't a mod; as I mentioned previously, mods can't change undertitles.

Mat didn't know a thing about who OP was. Bunner asked Mat to give OP an undertitle so people wouldn't confuse the two of them, so he did.

Done, to the best of my ability - I'm not sure exactly how much $ is owed at this point.

It seems he still owes Entim $2k and thecortster $1250.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

Cool, thanks. I was still wondering about that because something like this couldve be prevented completely with a little notation that this was Nick Rainey. In fact, not that it really matters now, but, if Mat really wanted to clarify that Nick was not Bunner he wouldn't changed undertitle to "formerly banned, now MP approved, MI_turtle".

Remember, when Mat changed the title, no one (certainly not Mat) had any idea it was Nick Rainey, as there were no IP matches. Mat knows Bunner personally, so when Bunner says "Hey, that's not me, can you give that guy an undertitle so no one confuses us", he probably just changed it without any interaction with OP. Or he might've told OP he was doing it, but that wouldn't have made a difference.

I still haven't been paid. He said that he sent me a check, but I double checked and I never got it, although I got all ~30 or so of the other checks from WSOP.

I told him to send it to my new address, will keep you all updated. It was for $1k

Re: MI_turtle WSOP Main Event 1.25 Mark-up - ITT Nick Rainey scams people for thousands of $.

fn scammer. I hope everyone gets paid back,I got to see how sketchy Nick is real fast.
On 7/14 after he scammed ,as many of you saw he opened a thread selling all his stuff,I jumped on buying his slot machine,because it was a sweet deal and if I give him cash in person hopefully it would of got sent to the investors.

So in pm's he promised to sell it to me and said no rush that he would be going to canada at the end of the month.He told me where he lived and i live like 18hrs from him so i set it up with a friend in La to make the 4 hr drive to meet him and on the 7/16 he starting freaking out that he needed the money and was driving to canada in a few days now and so i said i can meet him on the way since oregon is on the way,he says No now im flying.so I said i would have my friend come the next day.

He pm's me that night" if you dont call me in 45 minutes im selling it to someone else",I pm him a few hours later he says its sold and that i took forever. I tell him what i think about him then and he replys that I took forever and have no reason to be mad.

I'm not surprised about this after hearing what he has done and its not a big deal at all what happend to me,but just wanted everyone to know that he is most likely in canada as of 7/18 and I think I have his current phone number if anyone wants it if they dont have it.

COCAIN IS A HELL OF A DRUG NICK

"My condo is right downtown and less then two minute walk to great cafes, restaurants, bars, and beautiful parks right on the water. I have a nice ocean view from my bedroom and balcony."

Anybody want to take a stab at what monthly rent costs on something like this? Think he could pay some of the people itt back with that money?
