Title: Knitterhemd scamming people
Post by: Paper_Boy on June 01, 2018, 07:09:09 AM
I’ve witnessed many lows in the war2 community, but never thought I would observe a Nigerian prince type scam. Jesk and I were talking and it’s come to our attention Knitter has scammed at least 5 war2 players so far out of money. He will claim it’s part of a short term loan or some shit and just vanishes on some Lex Luther shit. I think most then parties involved wish to remain annonymous but just be warned, i’d hate to see Swift lose his millions and relegated to gaming inside the Starbucks bathroom. I remember the war2  community has at times been compassionate, just don’t let scum bags take advantage of you …Say you’re some fucked up orphan who never learned right from wrong, it’s 1 thing to scam strangers but to pretending to befriend people merely as a cheap ploy to take advantage of the better nature of humanity. 1 of the consequences there will be a deep reluctance for those rare cases where people actually needed help. I'd rather not associate or game with someone that desperate and shady

While personally I have no grudge against Knitterhemd, I would like to verify what Paper_Boy more or less said.

I did send some money to Knitter in order for him to organize a Lan Party at Germany. Which he never did... Knitter didn't pretend to be my pal or something, neither he asked me directly. He was just asking money in order to organize a Warcraft Lan party. I liked the idea, so I supported it :-). It just never come true, neither he offered to return the money.

It was money I had earned with casting some fun replays so I didn't really minded :-D (Easy come; Easy go) but people should be aware of the incident.

Although paperboy is annoying af I don't think his dumb strats make him a scumbag. Unless there's something else you're referring to.

with allstar it was just tks idea to give him a donation ("moneybomb") because allstars life was a mess, so not really something allstar did wrong.  then allstar came back again once or twice requesting more lol

seems Christian is scummier than that if it's not up front that youre just giving him $$ to keep.

I have given knitter money when he asked me for it, do I expect it back? No.
When you give someone money you shouldn't ever expect to see it again.
Am I upset with knitter? No. He has been very inactive as of late am I imagine the reason being is because he doesn't wanna show his face to the community which is unfortunate.

it’s 1 thing to scam strangers but to pretending to befriend people merely as a cheap ploy to take advantage of the better nature of humanity. 1 of the consequences there will be a deep reluctance for those rare cases where people actually needed help.

I would say that while we are all cordial with each other and friendly we are all not actual "friends." You may think someone you chat with on discord and the server are your friends but let's be real you can't really say someone is your friend unless you actual meet them in real life.
People may disagree with me but loaning money to someone who you befriended on the internet whom you have never met and expect to get it back is kinda unreasonable.

I did also give Knitt money and thinking the same way as Tora. If he was able host the lan it would have been awsome, if not...whatever. It is just money and it wasnt that much. Its like gambling, you shouldnt spend money you dont have afford.

No hard feelings from my side, I like Knitt as I know him when playing War2. I rather see him come back play then I see the my money coming back.

fine but if he says it's to throw a LAN event and then he doesnt throw the LAN event, then he's stealing

I am also starting up the Knitterhemd Refund Fund for all the victims.

Please PM me to make a donation to me by PayPal to reimburse all those who faced personal losses at the hand of Knitterhemd.

Minimum recommended donation is $50. Now is not a time to be greedy. Think of the victims. We all need to band together to help this worthy cause.








Note: 85% of funds received will be for administration fees.

Don’t misread me. Knitter should come clean as to what is motivations were.
 All I’m saying is users should accept the risk of theft when loaning money to people they interact with on the internet.

I have probably given ~$500 to various people who will remain anonymous to protect their identity. This does not include what I have freely given in my recent archers competition. I have never been paid back. It sucks but it wasn't a lot of money relative to me and I knew based on past experience with how many in this community operate, that I would not get it back. So I am not butt hurt.

That being said, who wants to LAN with me in Florida?

i mean him ruining games as a watcher, being blatantly racist, accusing people of hacking that he knows aren't just to be a pain in the ass, the list goes on

I'm not sure how you are able to maintain such paltry understanding of the PaperBoy situation.

http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,3430.0.html (http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,3430.0.html)

As you can see, he is a solid community favorite.

Some of us are into the badly-behaved-watcher shenanigans. I mean, it's fun and funny as long as it's sporadically applied. The hackusations are rampant at all times in all places, and you would only be sensitive to it if you have something to hide and can produce a paucity of screenshots when asked. Anything you want to share, foonat?

The racism thing...he needs discipline and training, yes. I volunteer.

Not quite as bad as Mystical stealing like $12,000 from Tabac[Man]  .... but still pretty shitty.

apparently they had a tournament of some sort going on (not war2 related). Mystical had the $$$. Tabac won the tournament. Myst only gave him like $8,000 of the $12,000 and said some other guy took the rest of the money lol

Iam one of the guys who got scammed. Knitter has told me like 20 times that he is going to pay me back ”next day”. He has had so many different excuses like broken computer, being on vaccation and so on. Im a former internet poker player and recognize this low life behaviour from poker addicts who tries to scam people out of money to get to continue to play. I know Knitter has been talking alot about sportsbetting.

I got a shitload of the convos with Knitter saved and will post it here some dag when Iam able to.
