NO LONGER AVAILABLE - I HAVE TRANFSERRED TRIP TO MY DAUGHTER. IGNORE BELOW.

I paid $2179.00 for RMI's Emmons Expedition Skills Seminar June 15-21, 2017. This is a six-day instructional mountaineering course with a summit attempt on Mt. Rainier via the Emmons Glacier route. I injured my knee and cannot attend. RMI (Rainier Mountaineering Inc.) has a no refunds policy but they allow transfers to another individual. I would like to sell it. If interested please call or text me at (806) 236-4279 or email: RobertTaylor79109@gmail.com.

Very doubtful this is a scam. He posted this on ST as well. I'd tend to believe him, but of course I'm sure this can be verified with RMI before any cash changes hands. Odd thread to call scam on.

Odd thread to call a scam on? Not with the amount of scams by people just joining and looking to sell things just in the past few months on here. I actually was looking for a few guidebooks, a "member" contacted me and even had a picture of an old guidebook to seem legit, till I paid. No book...no communication and the person's account/page was deleted!

The guy has no info...a personal blank page and just became a forum member as of today with what appears to be a first post looking to sell a high dollar item.

I'd rather be cautious and wrong about it than nieve... if he's legit he'll understand, and if legit i wish him the best at either rescheduling it or selling it. Heck if I had the time and cash I'd buy it!

If a scammer takes the time to make a webpage with this much detail he deserves to get paid.

Caution and due diligence are important, but this guy seems legit.

I can't believe you fell for the old Texas Cardiothoracic surgeon scam.

:-)

I agree, not a scam- seems like a great opportunity for someone to save a few bucks on a guided course and for Dr Taylor to recoup some of his money.

I'm working those dates.

Not a scam.   Posted in the Mountaineering Club of Alaska FB page too.  Seems like RMI being shitty though... shouldn't it be a deposit until you arrive?

It's a deposit until 90 days before the trip...Atleast thats how it is with IMG. After that it's a done deal. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
