Today, I have seen David Roda Marco's name reappears on Facebook. He is a Spanish "entomologist". Be very careful if he offers you some butterflies for sale, do not send money in advance.
When I was 20 year old (and naive), he offered me some rare Himalayan species for sale. I paid via Western Union (in those times, there weren't Paypal) and never received my specimens. I know that other entomologists had problems with him too.
As he is knowledgeable and isn't Cameroonian or Peruvian, people easily trusts him.
I seem to remember reading a thread about his apparently less than satisfactory behaviour on the Insectnet Trading Reports section last year, and that he has several aliases. I have never come across him myself and hesitate to make any comments about his activities since everything I have heard is second hand. However, anyone in contact with him should be cautious considering his supposed bad reputation.

Vernon Antoine Brou Jr. I have posted about this scammer before in this group, but I see all of that has been removed from the list. This scammer has many aliases and has created many fake Facebook identities. He has been banned from InsectNet for the past 10 years as well, as that is where he cheated many individuals from across the world. I am very glad I kept the correspondence and information about this dishonest person in my records. Beware of anyone you are unfamiliar with from Barcelona Spain. The honest entomologist living in Barcelona may want to visit this person and donate to him a set of crutches, or even better a wheelchair.•
Michael Barz thanks a lot vernon, so we will put him in our list.
Anton Gologan put on the list
Sebastián Larrea Meza Thank you very much for keeping records of scammers Ramel and Vernon, I almost make an exchange and eventually being scammed. Good group
