If you’re planning to scam someone in the poker world, perhaps Chris Moneymaker isn’t the man to pick on. The 2003 WSOP Main Event champ and ACR ambassador this week retweeted his warning about alleged scammer David Mckim…
Following up on this post from before. Still no payment has been made to me or @TBensbenz
. gave him a week grace period but looks like a complete scammer, steer clear of @DavidMckim11 https://t.co/cQucKJsl2Y

As we reported last week, Moneymaker called out Mckim for failing to pay what he owes from deals made. At the time, Mckim seemed genuinely contrite at being called out.
He responded: “It’s a misunderstanding. I owe money from agreements made and have yet to fulfil my side of the deal(s) due to reasons outside of my control. However, we are on the road to getting this right.”
However, it appears that despite his promises, not a cent has been returned, and Chris Moneymaker isn’t the only one still waiting for his money.
He sent me photos of him winning thousands last month on BoL. Has been nothing but lies for 4 months straight. He acts like it’s not his fault. He is the worst type of scammer in the poker community.

Having given Mckim the benefit of the doubt, it now seems that his excuses were just that and he has little or no intention of paying what he owes.
The flurry of public denials that he is a scammer have been followed by radio silence, not responding to journalists’ calls for comment on the latest allegations.
It wasn’t long before Mckim’s Twitter feed was being picked up on as signs that he is out looking for easy bucks rather than facing up to his responsibilities to the poker community…
Guy…he’s doing everything possible to get the money… 😏 pic.twitter.com/eFlcAp3FGL
