Reefwerks/Jonathan Hirsch: Liar, Thief, Scammer

Postby PinkLady on Tue Sep 27, 2011 1:23 am

This jerkwad has been screwing people left and right all over the place, including me. Look at all these threads where he scammed people, sent broken items, dropped communication after taking money, etc. He's screwed over 20 people that I can count, likely more that don't post on forums. He is still posting and trying to sell all over Craigslist and various forums. He is also using stolen pictures from ReefCentral members and advertising them as his own builds. These are tons of reviews and threads where he scammed people:

I know what your saying about this guy. I had a bad expierence with him aswell. Promised me a 125 gallon aquarium and custom made stand that he said he had there and his business. Then he said i wouldnt like it cuz it was scratched but, he was getting another one in. It was one excuse after another and abunch of lies. O then there was the famous death in the family. I would not deal with this guy and I hope you dont either. He likes to contact you if your looking for aquarium so beware.

I've had quite a few people contacting me lately saying he is still running the same old game.

I sent the guy that ordered a PM, and posted this same info on Jonathan's sponsor thread. He has lines thrown out into every reef forum you can think of, snagging more and more suckers as he gets banned one by one from other forums. I loathe people like this that use people with no remorse, and KEEP doing it.
