Yea - good luck! The owner of those forums is using the mailing list given to him by WBCCI to populate his forums to now send out messages to WBCCI members. I am betting that the person who owns those forums is no longer even a member of WBCCI - an issue that befell him when he first presented the forums to the club.
No - I would expect to continue to get email messages from him. I can say that the good thing about being on his Miserable Users block on his site - I just am not on his Christmas List! Yea!!!

Regardless of all the other garbage, fortunately it appears getting removed from the list is rather simple, with an unsubscribe and a do not contact link at the bottom of the email. Was a quick one, now we'll see if we still get stuff from them.

I did this a couple of months ago and still got the Christmas message. Also, ultimately the info is coming from AS. I reported change of owner info to AS on my used unit when I became aware of the Actibrake recall. I then received WBCCI information (presumably because AS informed them of new owner info)....THEN I got these "invites".

I got a Christmas message! I was worried I wouldn't I laugh because the 2006 Bambi is still listed for sale on their site. I bought it in January. If anyone wants to pay me 32,500 I might think about it.

Be carefull with this website. The website owner sold me an airstream that had been already sold six month before my purchase ( like yours). He scammed me and keep the money I sent him. After I have posted a complaint to department of Justice of North Carolina, he modified his website, but he has never returned back my money. It seems he continues to scam Airstream buyers by saling Airstream already sold before on his website. Thanks for your alert.

Yea, we all know - there are so many who have felt the destructive hand of Cortez (or is it Cortes this week). From individuals, to the WBCCI itself, many have felt his destructive path.

Search these forums or Google in general and you will likely see more negative items about him than positive, if you find something positive at all. I agree that he is not to be trusted - I have not seen him do anything that warrants praise.

Guess this is not going to go away anytime soon. There's been a reaction and a story that aired tonight on WBTV North Carolina Cyber Assassination - WBTV 3 News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic for Charlotte, NC
Gibson says he has been a victim of character assassnation and will be sueing. Click the video on the right side for the full story. Besides video footage of Buttercup, AirForums is named in the broadcast and also talks about the WBCCI website. I wonder if attorney letters will be soon to follow.

I have a good friend. He found a supply of screw on porch lights. For some reason all the vintage people have to have these. So he lists them on Ebay for exactly what it cost him. Once the vintage crowd caught wind they were available, a bidding frenzy took place. Fools from all over rushed in to bid them up real high. Then someone on this very forum found his source and accused him of exploiting the community. He was even called a "scammer." My friend could not be further from a scammer. I can say that, but others said other wise.

International money fraud is a serious crime. I doubt anyone is taking it lightly if indeed it happened.

Market fallen out?

Many folks will tell you running a legitimate business can be tough in today’s internet age. The very internet that is used to feed you can quickly turn and bite as well regardless of one’s actions. Add to that the base cost of running a legitimate business, business licenses, State Corporation papers, insurance, workmen’s compensation, rent/mortgage, Auto/RV Dealers license’s, zoning cost, commercial business hazard material cost and disposal (strippers/grease/paint/etc...) repair tools and equipment, etc…, etc... the base cost along with a United States economy that has had a major down turn reducing the amount of expendable income in many households for the “nice to have” things in life has cause many businesses that fall under those categories (RV’s, Boats, Planes, Motorcycles, ATV’s, Vintage autos, Antique’s, etc..) to close their doors over the past few years. Now add to that the cost of acquiring your inventory going up as other people enter the business trying to make a “quick buck”, owners doing research to learn the value before putting that old thing up for sale (good deals getting harder and harder to find compared to just a few years back) to then have the “retail” value going down because of the bad economy and lack of expendable income, one is lucky to even cover the base cost net alone make a couple of hundred thousand dollars like some may have back during the bubble.

Could the cause of the decline in ones business be because of negative information on the very thing they are also using to sell their product called the internet or could the cause be the economy, reduced expendable income and overall increased cost of doing business and general downturn in the market? There have been a lot of very good hardworking business owners that have seen sales drop to a trickle or even closed their doors over the past four years.

The market has fallen out of many things over the past few years, Airstreams are no different.

Just to tell you, that this guy (Gibson) has not been a victim of cyber assassination, as he said, but many people wrote in Internet forum to tell the bad stories they had with him. I called the TV in North Carolina, to tell them who was this guy and how he scammed me. They ask me to prouve them that I had been scammed by him. I sent them all documents like bill of sale for Airstream purchase and shipping documents, transfer funds documents to Gibson's account ... And finaly they close the forum opened around this pretexted assassination! I never heard again about them. What I can tell you is that 1,5 years after I bought the vintage Airstream on his websiteb (vintage-airstream.com), I never got my trailer and the guy kept my funds. if it is not a scam! All vintage forum in Europe has flaged this guy as a scammer to prevent any other buyer to be scam again. My next step is to go to Charlotte, to see the face of him.
