I have my doubts about this one:
http://www.armorama.com/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=Mike-132
Profile looks a bit like a spammer but I have not made up my mind yet (names, e-mails, IP, nation/state don't match).
The store on e-bay looks empty but the feedback profile fits the "mission statement" (loads of AKAN paints).
Wait and observe.

The IP-nr belongs to Dhaka in Bangladesh which is far from the United States. IP-nr also turned up "dirty" in an abuse-database.
Real name and email was too different, e-mail only turned up once in Google and that was as creator/owner of an incomplete web-page about yoga which linked to another web-site which did not exist.
Evidence enough for me and I needed to kill a spammer, it's been a long time since the last one ....

No spam, just suspicious.

Searching on the e-mail adress didn't turn up anything dirty.
The IP-nr is allocated to Shaw Communications Inc with headquarters in Alberta (Canada) so the users claim of United States could possibly be incorrect since Shaw only provides services in Canada.
The kickstarter link does go to a fundraiser campaign and the producer name 'Steepled Hat Studios' seems to exist and make wargaming pieces and environments.
I found a blog post written by some Dustin talking about a kickstarter campaign for an iron age farmstead.

I would say this is legit.

This one is a bit suspicious.

I don't know if the link goes to a real kickstarter project or not.

Suspended one.
This one tried to get clever and use a user name which was not a first name - surname combination.
The single post was more than enough evidence for a suspension though ....

An old spammer I found via KitMaker Gallery comments. Probably the same person as kennynguyen123 since he spammed the same picture with a similar link.

Two profiles by the same guy.

The first is a US account where I followed his messages.
https://armorama.kitmaker.net/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=CGI_furniture

And that led me to a second account from Scotland.
https://armorama.kitmaker.net/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=CGIFurniture




Thanks Gary!
I needed something to cheer me up today.
Someone had already suspended the first account, CGI_Furniture but CGIFurniture was still there so I could suspend it

Perhaps I should create the occasional spam account just to keep you entertained.
