Contribute to the forum, by saying what a f....head this guy is.

Send the US$ 900 back or send the skirts to our forum colleague you scammer piece of shit. Fucking sad low life piece of human garbage. Karma is a bitch and it is coming for you."
Thanks man! Small update, his account has been banned. Doesn't mean he isn't or can't create another one. Keep an eye out though. I had no idea you could check other ppls activity in the forum, so him being active on 2/5 lends me to believe the obvious. Thanks for everyone's comments and support.

Hope you manage to get your money back or manage to get some legal penalties in the SOB.

Good luck man.

And nice M5 you got. Looks pretty good.

Sad sign of the world we live in and these type of faceless crimes.

I'm in the Financial industry and every day there's a new scam or fraud attempt.

OP, enjoy your car and hopefully you can get the $$ back.

In the end, it's just $ ... certainly could be a whole lot worse.

Looks like he took his FB page down yesterday.

Alex, if you're reading this, just return the money man. Don't be that guy.

I mean... if this guy was actually dumb enough to scam with his real name and number that's a whole new level. OP: thanks for the heads up. I wouldn't be shy about email others from the strikers FC organization. They clearly know him.

Where this POS lives can be found on https://www.usphonebook.com/ with the information supplied by OP. A letter from your attorney might be a proper step.

I know if someone had posted a link that showed my kid's info and pictures, I'd have given the money back.

I was going to say take it easy guys maybe something happen to the poor guy but seeing that he's been active up to 2 days ago that isn't cool.

Real Clown shit...smh... makes all the good guys look like scumbags and that isn't fair at all, the most high sit high and look low so this guy will get what's coming to him.

This is a bit off topic, but You're totally right. I heard the other day people are on ebay selling legit new items for ~50% of their value. You buy from them, they buy the item from the company with a stolen credit card. Whatever company they buy from his happy, they get paid. Ebay is happy they get paid. Seller is happy, they get paid. Buyer is happy. Only one that gets screwed is the person or credit card company after the payment is reported as fraudulent.

So many scams out there these days...

I heard about that. Happens all the time.

My cousin was working a deal on a commercial property. He was ready to wire transfer $45K to them, he received an email from them with the wire details. He wired the money and then got a confirmation email from them confirming receipt of transfer. Two weeks go by and the lawyers called my cousin stating that they never received payment. After investigation, turns out my cousin got scammed/phished. They had spoofed their lawyers email address. Bank /FBI checked the other account and it was closed. Opened with phony info. My cousin was out $45K. Lesson learned to always verify by phone the account info before transferring.

Crazy happening out there.

Interesting I have been scammed on here before but didn't go after it cause he lived in upstate NY.

Yep... for my fund we finally just set a policy saying no wires go out without a good old fashioned telephone conversation confirming wiring details.

Scammers are good enough that its about the only thing they can't trick you on.
