    Hello everyone,

    This is being posted as a public service to the Commodore and Amiga enthusiast communities.

    Sean Robinson, a known scammer, con artist, liar, and thief is once
    again making the rounds of the classic arcade, computer, and console communities. Yes, this is the same Sean Robinson who was involved with
    the founding of the Commodore Computer Club USA (https://www.commodorecomputerclub.com/). He is mostly active in the
    Pacific Northwest these days, though is accomplished at screwing people
    over in online transactions.

    Sean has spent time in jail in California for felony defrauding of
    arcade game collectors. For more information regarding that (and a
    copy of the court documents from before Sean had the conviction
    expunged from his record), please visit the following link:

    For a more up-to-date copy of the court documents from after the
    expungement took place as well as additional info regarding his more
    recent scamming activity:

    And, for more juiciness regarding his involvement with the Coleco
    Chameleon and how he swindled money out of that debacle:

    You may be tempted to think that he's paid his debt to society and
    changed his ways. Don't be. Sean is pathologically incapable of
    behaving with honesty, integrity, or any sort of moral or ethical sense
    when it comes to having even a shred of decency in financial dealings.
    He's been doing this for over 20 years at this point, and time and time again we've seen how his behavior simply will not change.

    Additionally, if you are aware of Sean Robinson being involved with (or
    is becoming involved with) a club, event, or other organization, please
    make the appropriate person(s) aware of his past.

    Please help spread the word about this person. The sooner he is
    completely ostracized from any community he may be seeking to harm the better-off we'll all be.

    Thank you,

    The Society for Preventing Sean Robinson from Ever Escaping His Past.

    I have also had an issue with with guy. I bought a huge lot of Commodore related stuff from him and he never delivered. Took him to Small Claims Court (Clark County Washington Case No. 20C2401-3). He tried to lie his way through the trial, but with my
    evidence (he is a very sloppy conman/scammer) the judge ruled in my favor. I did collect all the money plus court fees. He also tried to pull a fast one on me after the trial, where he had pretend fake lawyer dress me down over how the
    repayment was
    going to happen. The funny part was he tired to offer me Commodore hardware has
    part of his repayment.

    The club seems to be active still -- leastaways, the website is getting
    regular updates. What was the extent of his involvement with the club?
    I'm asking because there are an awful lot of pages on the club's
    website that are written in the first person (such as "A lot of people
    ask me when I got into the Commodore 64 computer and I tell them it was
    around December 1983 because that's when I received my first C64 from my grandparents..." at <https://www.commodorecomputerclub.com/christmas-1983-my-first-commodore-64/> and "For a little background about myself, I’ve been involved with the Commodore 64 computer for over 36 years now, basically since I was a
    little kid..." at <https://www.commodorecomputerclub.com/about/>) but
    they don't contain any bylines or other information identifying the
    author. Is all this material written by Robinson or is it some other
    member?

    Regards,
    Tristan

    He is the leader of the club.

    Yes, to the best of my knowledge, all of it is written by Sean.
