Ivan was a well-known Geekhack user who ran a lot of group buys, but got forcibly removed because he never shipped a bunch of items and promptly disappeared.

from nicks reddit post:

TLDR:

IvanIvanovich had 3 group buys open in 2015 on geekhack, he didn't place the order for two of them (Miami Nights GMK, and a Red Scarf keyboard buy), but he did receive all the black on black pbt, and black blanks (but didn't pay IMSTO). Now, three years later I guess he ran out of money and is selling the sets from the group buy. A couple weeks ago he sold 30 sets of blanks, now he is selling printed sets. It is 100% him, the name on his ebay account is the same, his old ebay user id matches a old email Ivan used, and he lives in the same place.

you know, someone posted the links for the blank sets to me a while back....

I cancelled my order because of the russian email account.... call me crazy but it seemed strange.

Good to know I managed to not let Ivan get more GHer's money

If this is indeed Ivan, I have no idea how he has manged to maintain a 100% positive feedback rating.  I'm also surprised that no one has played 'scam the scammer', considering how much power eBay has given to buyers these days.

Holy crap. Our little hobby is so fun, and I despise anyone who would take advantage of us.

A little hard to report the item under the specific category of stolen items, as eBay in that case demands only law enforcement report such.
