    Additional Post on FRAUD/SCAM ALERT ED TRICE, Liquid Nitrogen Overclocking Inc

    Hey everyone

    I think that this is an important post to make here so as to update the community of builders with a warning about this guy/company.

    It is true that for a few years I was a builder for LNO but as of last Aug 2012 I left LNO and have had nothing to do with Ed Trice or LNO after he tried to pull a scam on me and very funny stuff going on. He later got another builder involved and scammed this guy, he can post here if he wants to.

    As time has gone on I have been contacted by several clients/attorneys trying to get in contact with Ed, it seems he disappeared for awhile.

    Without a whole long story on my part I think these two threads started by his latest scam victim is about the most complete list of his actions yet. You can also google "Ed Trice" to see how he has scammed the chess community years ago.

    I believe there was a big mess on facebooks WestCoastMods group about him so he makes the rounds and is prolly looking for another builder.

    There is no way I would ever be involved with any of that and that's the reason I left this whole mess.
    My word is worth far more then a few $'s, maybe that's why I am broke LOL

    See the latest stuff on this scammer.

    He claims on his facebook page that Brazx's F1 ln2 pot that was used as a cascade evap is his project.

    Here is Manicdan's suitcase computer he built, yup claims that one as his project also. Then look a little further and you can see my Single Stage Phase unit that was built by Ron.

    I feel sorry for the people that often get swindled by characters like this, it happens even to the best of us.

    Im glad you got out of that right on time ,you are one of the most helpful and stand up guy I know off. Bill you always do the right thing and that speaks a lot about the wonderful person you are. Seems there are so many scammers/frauds/bad business lately its just keep going downhill for some people we used to trust we our souls , to find out later not everything you hear and see is true ,at the end the true and reality always comes thru , always justice will be served at the end ,nobody is above the Law.

    Had a lot of free time, went through the thread, Close to $50000, damn big money. The victim seems to be loaded, , though how come such a fraud went for so long is astounding. If I am not wrong, he was even associated with OCA buckeye?

    Some quotes:
    Supermicro is not an established overclock vendor.

    Well, not too impressive, all they did was cluster together 700,000+ cores to claim that title.
    Yeah cause clustering so many cores surely was an easy thing.

    The legit comments were a nice reading, thank you.

    Yes back in the day it was OCA where he first showed up. After a bit Kal gave him the boot.

    Interesting.... just received a phone call from Delaware Title Loan (This is an auto loan company) asking for me.

    I said how can I help you ?

    Do you know a Mr. Ed Trice ?
    Yes how can I help you ?
    Mr. Trice put down in his loan paper work that we could call you if we are having trouble contacting Mr. Trice...
    I left Mr. Ed's company almost a year ago and have had no contact with him in almost a year, how ever old clients, attorneys and other people he has scammed have been contacting me ...

    Oh really !!!!

    Maybe Mr. Ed hasn't made his Red Viper car payments and has gone AWOL.... REPO time

    Why is he using me as a contact in loan documents ?

    Because he is bitter toward you, he wants you to suffer in the wake of his failure

    Like I said, Ed Trice and Ariel Castro would be good buds.
