KleptoSkuld is a scammer

I bought two patches from KleptoSkuld and he never sent them to me. Ripped me off for $40. Don’t buy from this guy.

Sorry to say this but that piece of shit it’s probably the most famous scammer on Facebook groups and here for sure. PayPal claim it’s all you need to do and never send payments as friends. Sorry to read that you paid for stuff that it’s 100% secure you will never get.

“Cover the fee”

The fee = $.000002

MortalFate's picture

It's always encouraged to pay as goods and services here.

DoctorDeath's picture

ALWAYS USE PAYPAL PROTECTION

also - he hasnt logged in for ~2 weeks and i see he has a lot of PM's that he hasnt replied to.. so maybe something is up.. unsure

DoctorDeath's picture

added a warning to his page, hopefully he resolves it

DoctorDeath, can you add a warning to a scammer which goes by the name VickyDown?

Heavy Metal Chemist's picture

I bought from him a while back (Tygers of Pan Tang patch) and it arrived in about a month. Currently I'm waiting for another patch and the 20th of February he told me he would send it on the 22nd. So far I haven't received it but I paid with the 'services and goods' option. I hope it arrives but forum entry is concerning.

Klepto's not a scammer; he's a reliable guy but I guess he's not the most consistent at TSS (no hard feelings if you read this big dog, hahaha). I've dealt with him a couple times; he can be either on top of his game or totally behind. And by the looks of it he hasn't even logged in here for the last two weeks.

Edit: Maybe he less scrupulous than I initially believed!

I’ve bought from him too, The first time I bought something off of him it was an original Morgoth Resurrection Absurd patch and the second was an og Carcass tools of the trade patch. Both of those were separate transactions and both of those patches got delivered. Then he messaged me asking me if I was interested in buying an og Sadus Swallowed in Black Patch and on January he offered me an og Judas Priest Painkiller patch, I paid for both (thankfully through goods and services) and those are the ones that haven’t arrived. When I messaged him the first time around he was pretty cool and enthusiastic, then at the end after he sold me the other 2 patches he was talking more plain. I don’t know if this is relevant but he started selling off his collection. He doesn’t strike me as a scammer, but he definitely had odd behavior towards the end and eventually stopped logging onto TSS. Maybe he got involved in a nasty situation? I don’t know. I don’t want to assume because I don’t really know anything, but my point is maybe he’s not a scammer and possibly got involved with the wrong crowd. I already filled a claim for the money (he hasn’t responded to that either by the way) because I don’t want to lose it, but I’m really hoping he makes a return and has a valid reason, hopefully he’s ok. But I’m also not denying the possibility that he could be attempting to scam us. Be safe stay metal \m/

Edit: At first I actually thought Klepto had some stuff going on in his private life but I see now that he’s a massive prick for taking advantage of everyone he could before leaving.

This is a concerning message to be honest. I've also bought the Judas Priest - Painkiller patch from him 🤔 Also I don't like jumping to conclusions, and it could be that Klepto has two Painkiller patches (like he had two Resurrection Absurd patches). Yesterday I threw out a few messages via several channels and I will give him a few days to respond. In case he doesn't reply I will also feel free to file a paypal claim.

I also bought a patch from him. I had a tracking number - the patch was nearly here, but the stupid postman didn't find me and the letter was sent back to the US (got this information from german post service, so there WAS a letter on ot's way to me). Until he stayed offline I was in frequent contact with Klepto Skuld. He has contacted USPS that the letter went missing on it's way back and from his messages I had the feeling that he really wants to solve the problem. Still having hope - though I am a bit worried now.

Heavy Metal Chemist's picture

Did you ask him to send registered or did he do that by himself? The first patch I bought from him arrived safely with unregistered shipping.

Klepto generally has been responsive with me as well. Since the 20th of February I didn't hear anything from him anymore. Obviously, something could be going on in his life, but now slowly multiple 'stories' trickle in which are a bit worrying. He decided to sell his patches because he needed the cash (https://tshirtslayer.com/patch/morgoth-patches-1st-lot-3-total). Hopefully this is not the tip of the iceberg and that he decided to make cash in a bad way.
As said, I dropped him 3 messages (email, TSS, and Facebook). Hopefully I get a reply, or that the patch arrives in the coming days, but otherwise I fear the worst.

Bladerunner's picture

I suggested tracked and insured and I believe he did use that - at least I have a tracking number and a number for the missing item request. USPS lost track of the letter, which is not the seller's fault. But if he left TSS forever I have a problem, since only the seller can make insurance requests to USPS. I want to believe that he will pop up again, he seemed to be a good guy. Fingers crossed then!

bad_american1992's picture

Similar experience, he sent me a Massacre patch but scribbled the address badly and the postman returned it to sender, since they couldn't make out where I lived. 10 months later it made it back to him, and I had him ship it with tracking that time. It arrived no issue and then I bought a Blind Guardian patch off of him a few weeks later with no issue.

RnReiner's picture

I'm wondering how this thread can only be a couple of days old. Given that so many users here are active both on TSS and in the respective groups on FB it comes as a surprise that - apparently - the fact that this guy is a notorious scammer has gone unnoticed around here. Sorry for your (potential) losses, fellows, but KleptoSkuld is among the 3-5 people I'd never even consider trading with.

Heavy Metal Chemist's picture

He definitely went under my radar. Here on TSS he has a respectable reputation and that is where I based my willingness to deal with him on. I bought one patch from him and it was all perfect, so there was for me no reason to believe that he would not be trustworthy this time around.
Luckily I paid for services/goods so I'm confident I don't loose anything, however, I rather get the patch 😅

RnReiner's picture

Well, fingers crossed! :)

Beneath_Remains's picture

I texted him on TSS and on FB he kept bullshitting me over and over again for 2 months and never sent anything he scammed me for a Catacomb PTPP

The_Cyborg_Slayer's picture

I bought some patches from him recently. Not the best communication on his part but he still delivered. I opted to pay the fee so I could get payment protection. I dunno.

SpeedMetalKale's picture

Yep, he scammed me as well sadly. Never dealing with him again! He's on Facebook, and he's very active on there and will purposely ignore your messages.

Heavy Metal Chemist's picture

Sorry to hear that mate. My paypal claim on him is still pending. He has been ignoring messages for ages now. I don't care too much since I will receive my money back.

SpeedMetalKale's picture

Thanks man! It was smart of you to do 'Pay for goods and services'. Thankfully I only spent 10 bucks! I was even considering buying his expensive vintage ADX logo patch, so thank God I didn't!

UndeadAgain's picture

Also posted on this thread on Facebook but same dude (Morta Skuld on FB) duped me out of the NA patch. Fuck this guy, he can stick a rake up his ass sideways.

MortalFate's picture

Strangely, he won't bother to check on a thread about himself. Any suggestion what I should respond?

Beneath_Remains's picture

He’s probably using an alternative account instead of actually logging into his main account.

MortalFate's picture

What goes around DOES come around.

Heavy Metal Chemist's picture

That is of today? 😂 The guy was "selling" his patches because he needed money...now he is desperate for money once again, but this time because all the paypal claims 😂 Can't feel for him though. People were giving him good money for the patches, but scammers don't get any sympathy from me.

Beneath_Remains's picture

Oh wait he logged back in?

MortalFate's picture

Yes, check his profile.

bad_american1992's picture

That was a good trick hahaha

MortalFate's picture

That patch would definitely look cool framed! Lol

MortalFate's picture

Yes, that's today. Not surprised he'd sign on for that offer. Don't think it's unreasonable but I won't do it.

Beneath_Remains's picture

He doesn’t deserve any money from people AT ALL

Heavy Metal Chemist's picture

Block that dude and don't even bother trying to get your patch. It is hard to take a loss, but staying frustrated only has a negative effect on you as he clearly doesn't care. Don't give him that satisfaction.
What goes around comes around, and he will feel the consequences of his actions one way or another.

Doc: I don't know how much it takes for you to delete accounts, but this isn't a case of some vague allegations anymore. This guy is a hardcore scammer and I feel it is justified to suspend his account.

If doc deletes kleptos account I’m becoming a supporter

This guy's been going at it for years. It's been know around here, FB groups and more. It's always a cycle of doing a couple (usually smaller value) sales/trades to build up some sort of rep, then he goes back to fucking people over on the big ones. As long as he has a platform he'll keep doing it.

SOAD4.0's picture

Damn, sad to hear that. I did a trade with him a while back and everything worked out fine. Wonder what made him decide to start ripping people off....

Heavy Metal Chemist's picture

This is part of the charade I think. He makes a deal with someone on a 'less valuable' item (in my case, Tygers of Pan Tang - The Cage tour patch). He holds his end of the deal perfectly, so you trust him. The next deal then involves a 'hot item' (in my case, original Priest - Painkiller) and that is where he tries to screw you over. Luckily I paid using services/goods so I got my money back, but some people thought they could trust him and lost.

The stories are many, not only here, but also on facebook. 'Where there is smoke, there is fire', but in this case the whole forest is an inferno. Kleptoskuld (Morta Skuld on facebook) is a damn scammer and I hope Doc is willing to take proper action so he can't do it here anymore.

DoctorDeath's picture

I have removed George's sword and blocked him from Patreon, I'll delete his account soon enough

What I simply do NOT understand is that people here will still send him money EVEN WHEN THERE'S A HUGE WARNING ON HIS PAGE AND ON EVERY PRIVATE MESSAGE HE SENDS

fucking!!!! half of me is like, yeah, sometimes we get scammers here, but probably 1 in 30,000 people (which is probably better than in real life!), the other half is like, why the fuck do people still send money to someone, that they dont know, on the other side of the planet, who has a big warning on his account that he's a scammer

Heavy Metal Chemist's picture

Thanks for taking proper action Doc 🤘🙂🤘 I also understand your point that it is not the smartest move of people to make a deal after you placed the scammer notification.

SpeedMetalKale's picture

Thanks a lot for doing this Doc!! He had that scammer tag after I dealt with him. I actually had dealt with him before and it was ok. I think that's his tactic. He gets you to trust him, then flat out scams you later on 😒

MortalFate's picture

Why not put his identity out there?

Beneath_Remains's picture

Everyone knows that pricks name it’s pointless
He goes by George Younghorse which is probably some BS made up name
