Beware of Calgary Scammer Steve Utah “Smith”
THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, meet the Calgary degenerate gambler/poker player Steve Utah that goes by his creative alias Steve Smith around Calgary. He will smooth talk you and pretend to be the nicest guy so when he needs to borrow money to gamble at poker tournaments. You’ll feel like he’s trustworthy. He owes a number of people money but ducks them or tries to make excuses like he’s out of town, mom’s sick, mom died, he’s waiting for a transfer, he’s reached his weekly max, he’ll get you the money tomorrow, etc.
When confronting him, he’ll try to deflect the argument to make the other person look like the bad guy by saying oh yeah well I did pay you, you didn’t lend it to me, etc etc. Dude needs to borrow $65 to play a poker tournament in Calgary. Most often he will play evening tournaments Grey Eagle Mondays/Fri/Sat, Cash Casino Tuesdays/Sundays , sometimes Deerfoot Wednesdays and can be seen during major tournament series if he can scam some money. Most often he will play PLO tournaments and satellites to win his way into bigger tourneys. He brags about having $11M in Australia in trust but he only gets $1000 per week sent to him – um yeah, sure he does. That’s why he can’t scrape together $65 and dresses like a bum. If you have $11M that belongs to you, why would you get $1000 per week or $52,000 per year? In 30 years, you would have received $1,560,000 out of $11M ? Why not take that money and live a comfortable life somewhere rather than scamming people for a couple hundred to a couple of grand? Why would you need to work even with $11M?
Favorite scam of his is that he is waiting for a transfer and it hasn’t hit his email yet, can you lend him the money and you’ll get it in the next hour – then he says it didn’t come through and he’ll get you tomorrow when he checks with the bank. Smart people have caught on and make him transfer, deposit into their account before giving him money. He’s a vulgar arrogant a*s who tried to hit on the women in the poker room (players, waitresses, dealers, etc.) promising to take them to Australia and how they should f**k even though he has a disabled wife and kid at home – but that’s ok as we have an “arrangement.”
All around douche bag. To top it off, he’s a rat who’s running from getting his ass kicked as he ratted out the Australian gangs:

This is the piece of sh*t we’re dealing with. He works in construction doing different jobs.
I wonder if he is the father of Johnny from Point Break (new version). They have the same nose.- nik
