I'm writing this to warn people about this ambiguous person, theavalon or avalon in Clubsnap.

Hp No: 98552455
Reference: If you wish, you can refer to this thread in VR or this thread in Clubsnap.
His pm to me:

Long story short, we agreed to deal for his camera on the 10th November, which is today. Actually he wanted to deal on Saturday, 8th November if i could make it. At first i couldn't, but eventually i readjusted my schedule since he wanted to deal on Saturday. So i tried calling him up to faster confirm cos i had exams to study for.
Hence, i tried to sell my old camera to fund my purchase of his, and when i finally got a buyer, he went missing.
Then i tried msging him, calling him, to no avail. In fact, he asked one girl to answer his phone everytime i called, and to say that he's not around. Then i got suspicious.
So i thought nvm, wait till Monday see how first. But until today he did not call me back nor reply my msgs. Then i saw this msg by a fellow forumer in his thread:
And therefore, my warning to VRZoners here. With the current trader's rating in place, negative feedback is a taboo here but i guess this guy deserves it for not only scamming me but other forumers as well.Originally Posted by dog_bone
Warning for all Users, the seller, AVALON aka ryan lin has been disappearing from deals for a few times already. Please do not waste your time dealing with this person as he will not turn up for the during the arranged time and place. I have waited for him for 1 hour at the meeting place and he disappeared ever since and is not contactable. Whatever is his intentions, pls refrain from dealing with him in case u waste your valuable time. He has done this several times on several forum, including CLUBSNAP. He is also heavily in debt from what i have research, from a reliable source, owing a foreign student S$9k. The company that he claims he is working for is also bogus. Therefore, DO NOT hand him any money prior to an dealings.
I hope this serves as a warning for all VRZoners, and i hope moderators can help to spread the word and prevent other forumers from being piloted/scammed.
