I am surprised he feels it is worth paying for multiple memberships, maybe he is enjoying the cat-and-mouse of it.

They usually use stolen credit card numbers.

He must have quite the collection of both cars and houses, 4 356's in different locations!

Easiest way to not get scammed by one of these guys is ask for a phone number, if you don't get a response, you have your answer.
