He replied and said he will be making this right with everyone.

Surely i heard these words from issuers alot already. "Dont worry, i make sure you will make your money back", "Ill do anything to make it work". Problem is, i often still waited months later. Roll Eyes

So did he say something about what timeframe he means? And what is the hindrance for him in the meanwhile?

I will send you a pm and ask you if the second phone number i got from him is the same you got.

Well I can not say for sure either way (I like to think that he is telling the truth and will make everyone whole though). I only have his info from a project we were working on last year with a mutual friend.

Sebastian - we have different numbers I assume yours is a google voice number or something? We do have the same number - you just added a bunch of numbers to dial it from your country I assume.

It seems to be not only the country code i guess. Maybe its a service where you get nearly similar numbers for landline and smartphone or so.

I don't really think so. That's what he's been saying to me since we exchanged the Bitcoins. And he never sent me any of the $5000 he owes me since November/December 2014.

I dont understand why you waited SO long. I mean i waited a month too but it was not that much money. Is it change money for you? At least you should have threaten him with a scam accusation threat. That was what worked for me at the end. I gave him a week time and claimed after that i will open a thread.

Maybe OP would have had driven better with that too. First threaten to open a thread instead opening one from the start. Though im not sure if it would have helped with your amount. :/

I wasnt. He sent the coins, or let someone send for him, after i threatened him to open up a scam accusation thread.

And i think its way too early for legal actions. You would have costs without them making sense. He now is under real pressure. When he doesnt come through then such actions might be worth it.

Maidak has been really sketchy for the past 1 year or so.  He constantly messaged me on Skype looking for me to invest in projects with him.  It seemed that the project that I invested into was secondary to the investment itself.  Here's some examples of the weird / sketchy convos I've had with him.  Maidak strikes me as the type of guy who acts very successful, but it's all just smoke and mirrors.  He's claimed to me that he has made 6 digits many years, but in hindsight I think he's been making peanuts for a long time.

Here's some examples of him trying to push absolute trash investments on me.

That is extremely sketchy. I saw on his group buy thread that he claimed to make 6 figures running his website. Judging by the amount of money he stole, I would say that is probably not true.

11 days later it looks like that was not much more than an excuse.

Guess im lucky that i could get my money out when a month later he goes scammy.  Roll Eyes

If this goes longer then maybe all his contact details arent valid from the start. Local Voip-Number maybe and other things? If someone wants to set such thing up then this would be possible.

Anyone who boasts about this stuff is very likely just blowing hot air up your arse. It's like when people make out they're hot shot traders or investors but need your money to do it. If you're so good at trading why do you need my money? Make it yourself. Maidak is unfortunately very likely just a long-conner. Nothing you can really do about those people other than only trade with people you absolutely trust which isn't always as easy as that.

I think people should post all the info they have on maidak but I'd be surprised if most of it wasn't bs. Even that poor quality picture of him looks to me like it was probably just found on the internet somewhere.

People should have a strong indication of his identity considering that he often sold Bitcoin via ways that required him to show his ID that would need to match what the sender put as the receiver's name. I believe that he would also have some things shipped to him over time which would help confirm his physical location. Some money transmission services will also confirm at least the general location where he was when he picked up money.

What ID? People can easily buy fake drivers licenses for around $100 or maybe even less and that's probably all most require, though hopefully he did leave some real info behind. Some people don't intend to scam from the get-go either but get themselves into a tricky situation and get desperate or just decide to take what they can get. If people do have this info I think now is the time to start collecting it and posting it to see what people can track down.

When people would send him money via money gram or Walmart to Walmart then whoever is sending money would need to write the name of the person who they are sending to and he would need to show the agent an ID that matches that name in order to pick up cash.

Sure he could use a fake ID to pick up the money however that would be very risky to use, especially over long periods of time. If he didn't plan on scamming from the start and didn't have any reason to keep his identity secret (like because he was busting scams for example) then I would doubt he would go through the trouble of using a fake ID

This is my impression with Maidak.  I believe he made some mistakes and possibly took some bad luck in real life (there was a discussion earlier about him being in hospital).  I'd still like to see a concrete list of who he owes and how much to each.  People keep popping in here and saying "o what a scumbag" or "I talked to his brother" and I think it's confused the issue a bit.  OP talks about 400$ but someone else was talking about 10K.  What's the actual state-of-affairs.  Can we compile an actual list of who is owed?

The hospital and brother situations are likely just excuses in my opinion. Maybe it is true but they seem like the first port of call for scammers to buy some time to me. They also wouldn't explain why he was still taking money in and this has been going on for quite some time so that's why I don't buy it.

He contacted me for selling some BTC through Western Union some day ago. So I don't think he gave valid excuse of hospital.

There is surely something fishy.

Did you send him it? Sounds like he doesn't plan on stopping scamming anyone soon. What's his skype? You can get his IP if he's online but he might be using a proxy or something.

His response was that he couldn't send WU because he is in India so I would doubt he sent him money, especially considering how expensive it is to send money overseas.

No I did not sent because I can't send WU because of Indian govt. rule. We can only receive.

He is still online on away mode.
