Re: Chino Rheem SCUM part two (more scams)

unfortunately these situations will always be a negative freeroll. all it takes is one time to completely screw you over.

this is why most people ask the other party to send first... if i was the one asking i would send first and if it was the other guy asking he's send first, even with friends i'd done dozens of xfers with, only way to really protect yourself.

Bernie MADEOFF. Chicno RHEEM. I'm starting to think that someone's last name is a true indication of their character

Shouldn't a person's associations say something about his or her character and integrity?

Taking an extreme example, if someone were close friends and constantly defended a convicted rapist of little girls or an old nazi hiding in Venezuela, wouldn't that affect your opinion of that person.

Chino isn't either of these (maybe simply due to the lack of opportunity), but he is reported by many respected members of the community as a scammer and definitely confirmed to be one at this point.

Still, Grinder stands up for him all the time while keeping himself free of any responsiblity by apparently not vouching for him, and I have a hard time considering this "innocence". (that and obviously banking online tourneys in his wife's name)

Re: Chino Rheem SCUM part two (more scams)

This guy is a born scumbag, Mizrachi is tarnishing his own image by continuing to be associated with him.

Re: Chino Rheem SCUM part two (more scams)

Possible silver lining: OP is from Montreal and has the last name Molson, 40K might just be a drop in the bucket for him (Chino remains repulsive scum of course)

I do not see why it wouldn't make sense for OP to think that Chino had the capital to back up a $20k transfer.

Re: Chino Rheem SCUM part two (more scams)

OP Have you ever confronted Chino in person? Surely in the last year you have bumped in to him... 40k is a lot of cheddar to shrug off

There's so many people with motive to go after Chino I think they'd have to rename that episode "First 248 Hours"....
