    But if you're REALLY bored, he's not the only one who used to used to be on here under a different screen name... Although I haven't really been that interesting either time. It's cool to see everyone that's still here though. I love PM

    Ahahahahaha.... Apparently he even got into scamming the cannabis community. Here's a reddit thread with a couple more of his businesses and a list of scams he's pulled.

    I know, right?!
    I would have stopped talking, and when he looked up, I would have then said "excuse me for interrupting your day".
    To which he would have replied "WHAT?" with that dumb look on his face. To which I would have replied "WHAT? Your fired, that's WHAT!"

    Surely facial recog software is common enough now that any number of law enforcement agencies could plug in his mug shot and find his most recent location—although not being wanted for murder he's probably not a very high priority. Oddlly, today it's more difficult to stay anonymous in a heavily-surveilled city than out in the boonies. Probably not too many street cameras in AR.

    I continue to be amazed how many people can't put the damned thing down for 2 seconds and focus on what is happening around them. FWIW I just got rid of my cell altogether and reverted to old school copper phone line at home. Life went on before they were invented, and people had to use their heads back then.

    I have a 12 year old flip phone with duct tape holding the battery in. Being a one man band I need it for business. Landline service is poor where I am at. A lot of companies are dumping their landline service.

    Is it a Motorola Razr? Or a Star Tac?

    Those were the coolest phones that existed when I was in middle/high school

    When darin was doing the speng thing, the shop he was in was right across the street from me (about 1/2 mile).
    I wish I would have taken the time to find all those threads back then. I would have just told all those people exactly where he was.
    This issue would have probably handled itself, if people knew where to find him. I also wish he would have somehow scammed Johnny Angel worse than he did! Johnny would have taken care of him. Steal $1k from Johnny, he will spend $1m burying your ass.
    Now that he has an honest to goodness $100k judgement against him (+ $5k attorney fees) it will be significantly harder for him to do anything with his own name. I would think? I don't know the ins/outs of being a scammer? He was already doing things under other peoples names. I would imagine now he is definitely going to have to find people to front his frauds? Pretty sure people cant legally change their names without a SSI background check. No way he could get through that. So, his next avenue will probably be straight up identity theft. I remember there being a stink tied to that Ferris dude whose money fronted speng. I think his name was Mark Ferris? Where they were stealing credit-card info. I am sure if that was the case, darin knows more than he should about that racket.
    Whatever happens, I am sure this is his career. He won't change. Unless he finally crosses the wrong person. And they change him permanently. From breathing, to not breathing.

    I had a Razr before I got this one. It is an LG, thicker than a Razr, with rounded edges. This is my 3rd cell phone in 25 years. The first one was destroyed when I dove down an embankment avoiding an out of control car while waiting for a tow truck to load my motorcycle with a flat tire. The Razr stopped working one button at a time. I was told my current phone will eventually die when the technology is no longer supported.
