    I wouldn't go that far.  I get the feeling that PP3 isn't necessarily trying to scam people by exaggerating his chess abilities,


    Are you serious?  The guy consistently refers to his "estimated near expert 2000 rating" while his real rating (which he won't post on his coaching profile) is more than 600 points below that?  The only person in the world making that estimate is himself.  What's the purpose of having ratings if everyone is just allowed to instead say what they think theirs should really be?

     I was referring to the first paragraph on his coaching profile.

    I completely agree.  My point was that his "2000 rating" may come from delusions of grandeur as opposed to a malicious intent to make some pocket change using dishonest means.  I might be wrong though.

    If he removed staff-imposed corrections on his coaching profile (as Goldendog said) and re-posted his original lies, that seems to me to make his intentions pretty clear.

    You're probably right.  I just found that hard to believe initially since he's doing such a terrible job at fooling anyone.
