    Please all BeEXTREMELY careful When buying On The Internet

    I sent a THIEF Michael Greyshock (Motherlode Mike) $575.00 for a metal detector. on March 3rd 2020. Kept telling me some run around. March 31 told me it was sent UPS would not give me a tracking number. Nothing ever came. He will not reply back or answer my phone calls any more 530-802-3874 . I have filed a complaint with the F B I waiting for there reply. Told me he lives in California. Let me tell a little more about this THIEF !!! He sells Dirt with so called gold inside it. He ALSO writes stories for a few prospecting magazines. He tricked me into sending him the payment as a gift through Paypal. He KNEW WHAT THE HELL he was doing I did not. If anyone has any more info on him let me know. DO NOT EVER SEND a PAYMENT to ANYONE as a GIFT through Paypal !!!~

    I even went as far as to ask others about him and was told NOT ONE COMPLAINT !!!

    DO NOT EVER SEND a payment to SOMEONE through paypal as a gift ( I thought as A GIFT I was charged NOT SO !!! I have been on the internet since 1984 this was my FIRST really bad deal !!!

    Just know what and who your dealing with and what for !!11

    That's a shame, Gare. Maybe he'll step in front of a bus, or something equally painful. Hate thieves and liars.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Gare, in the end he will not benefit from stealing your money.

    I am a firm believer in "The Eternal Law of Retribution", and
    that retribution will not come postmortem...fear not..before he
    croaks, nature will balance the scales.

    I'm so sorry that happened to you and these guys are right, he will get his tenfold.

    If the FBI doesn't get back to you soon, call the police or sheriff in the town he lives in, they should take care of it.

    Good Luck,

    I have contacted the two parties and have given information to both. I think that this has been a gross misunderstanding, buoyed my extensive personal problems. Happy to have done my part.

    Gare paid for detector on March 3rd, was told it was physically being shipped March 30 by Motherlode Mike and Gare has not received detector yet and Motherlode Mike has ignored all communication attempts since.

    Roverboy, stay out of it, this is between Motherlode Mike, Gare and TreasureNet. I know for a fact Gare did not ask you to get involved nor did TreasureNet. All Gare wants at this point is his money back.

    Roverboy is unable to reply further.

    Motherlode Mike has Gare phone number and email and has made no attempt to contact Gare or return his money or detector, sale is over 60 days old, more than enough time to have resolved this issue.
