Scammers Run Scammers Exposed Facebook Group

You’d think a Facebook group devoted to exposing scammers in the sports card hobby would be a safe place.

Think again.

In the often shady world of sports cards – things are not always what they seem

Last April, disgraced breaker Nathan Burns of Grand Slam Collectibles broke 25 cases of Heroes of Sport – a product riddled with trimmed cards from convicted felon Will Jaimet.

The product exposed the shady world of card trimming, and eventually led to an FBI investigation.

You’d think Burns, Jaimet, and the others associated with the scam would be exposed on sites devoted to exposing scammers.

Think again.

Burns is an advertiser on the Scammers Exposed Facebook group.

Any negative comments about Burns are scrubbed. And he’s not the only one.

Last year Stephen Michael, owner of Filthbomb Breaks, sold a trimmed Mickey Mantle to a collector. When the collector posted about the incident on the Facebook group – the post was deleted.

Why?

Because Filthbomb Breaks was an advertiser.

But it gets worse …..

Chris Gilmore

For over a year, collectors have been waiting on Chris Gilmore, a moderator on the Scammers Exposed page, and breaker for Vintage Breaks to deliver on a group PSA submission.

The collectors are still waiting.

The supposed 45-day turnaround has lasted over a year.

Gilmore’s response: “Just tell them all to f*ck off”

After a victimized collector got upset about the long wait, Ron Steven Marion, another admin of the Scammers Exposed Facebook Group, messaged the collectors’ place of employment and threatened to leave negative reviews about the business.

Marion later bragged about it to the group.

Collectors are still waiting for their cards.

Some victims feel Gilmore kept the customers’ cards for himself – and the delay is due to the fact he needed to purchase cards in lesser condition to submit.

If you question where your cards are a year later – moderators of the Scammers Exposed Group will call the HR department where you work.

This hobby is full of greedy scumbags.

Recently another moderator of the Facebook Scammers Exposed, Drew Herndon, invited Luis Molina – who runs a cleaning/trimming service for getting cards higher grades onto The Hobby Hotline Show. (link takes you to where the interview starts).

Despite being banned by all the major grading services since 2018, Luis is allowed to promote his service.

A search of Luis’ name in the Scammers website reveals:

Wonder if he’s a paying advertiser as well?

Ultimately the Facebook Scammers Exposed group & website is simply a slush fund to collect bounties from other scammers – and a feeding ground for the moderators to conduct scams themselves.

With card values never being higher – you wonder why dorks like this have to stoop to these levels. But the hobby seems to attract cockroaches. Be careful.


**2021 UPDATE**

Ron Marion is charged with running an illegal online raffle for a Dodge Challenger he owned. 

**2022 UPDATE**

Chris Gilmore found swapping out packs on camera while selling packs for Vintage Breaks.

  • Funny seeing these “Anonymous” posts……ppl too scared to post their damn names and get raked over the coals…..these are the retards of the hobby….the ones helping out the scammers and inbreds of the hobby

  • Now theyve got Onar Bargior running the page….hes under investigation for blackmailing women and threatening to send their families photos hes got them to send him via online gaming. Hes under investigation in West Palm Beach Florida. So if its not ok to scam….why is it ok to practically be a sexual predator to where when the women dont actually put out and only send picks he blackmails them???? The hobby has become a joke. I blasted Onars ass on a bunch of pages and was removed for it quickly. Guess they have more to cover up then scams huh

  • The nonsense that Drew, a now known scammer, pulled while we (ATC) and Mojo were on the show, was deplorable. Doesn’t surprise me that he waited until none of us were on to let his friend come on. We started the Hobby Hotline and invited that a-hat on to co-host. Drew is a POS scammer just like the rest of them.

  • What a bunch of morons. They must moonlight as Antifa when they leave the house. The people that lost cards should just go to that queers house and beat the dog piss out of him.

  • If there was any doubt about the Sports Card Scammers Exposed group having some nefarious shit going on, that ended tonight. They just perpetrated one of the biggest scams I’ve ever seen. They razzed a car for thousands of dollars, didn’t do it live, screwed it up 3 times, and still haven’t declared a winner. I feel terrible for the people that thought they won a car/cash.

  • Biggest scam ever in the hobby is taking place on the page as we speak. One of the admins in your article just scammed the group out of $21k after he tried to razz his car. Can’t make this up.

  • Please tell me whoever wrote this article sees the Scammers page now imploding due to the admin razzing off his car and completely botching the whole thing?

    • Ironically, they have a rule where if anyone talks about calling employers or other family members, they ban the person for being a “keyboard warrior”. The rules don’t apply to them.

      Also, check out the deal with Ron razzing his car for $21k. Let’s just say they’ve run the razz 3 times, and each time there were major issues, and Ron threatened to put anyone wanting a refund for his total incompetence on the scammer’s list. Another mod wisely deleted that post, but there are screenshots… well, should be, seems the mods are deleting anything that shows just how absolutely corrupt Ron is in this whole deal.

  • I wonder why the author didn’t even bother to post his name? Oh wait. Could be someone with someone with credibility.

  • Man….seeing some of these comments……they must have some pretty dirty knees ….Talk about sucking off the SSX admins…..SSX has been scamming for a long time……i brought most of this up last year in my scammers group

  • What a fucking retard to make this, you sound like a fucking jealous fuck. Haha

  • Cockroach just like the author of this sight. I remember when Josh Cade smacked you like the little bitch you are lol
