I just got the same email from Ari.

This is the contact info I have for Tom.  Can someone confirm whether it's correct (I think the phone number may no longer be active).

P.O. Box 246
Hannibal, NY 13074

Telephone:
3155140269

PO box wont help a lot I think Does tom revelatead his real name in past or does ppl send him ten sof thousands in btc without know his real name and having just a po box and a prepaid phone? Sounds like crazy if...

As far as we know, his name is Thomas Van Riper.

He got a Bitcoin vanity licence plate last year, so Ari's lawyers could probably track him that if anyone has a picture of the licence plate (it was on his Google+ account but he's deleted that account now and I can't find a picture in Google cache but he may have posted it here as well - it was in March 2012).

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=66927.msg778314#msg778314

Dave had access to the merchant account so he should be able to provide all of the details related to that account.

The domain registration info for BTCFPGA uses the PO box address.

http://www.ip-adress.com/whois/btcfpga.com

This was the street address for his computer repair shop.  It's also the address given on several domains Tom registered.

121 Lyon Street, Fulton, NY 13069 - New York,

Tel: (315) 514-0269

He was still using that phone number late last year but the website for the computer repair shop is now blank.

Fulton is significantly larger (so more commercial) than Hannibal (which is more rural). So, he probably worked in Fulton and just lives in/near Hannibal where his PO Box was located.

I'm curious as to how fast authorities will respond if we aggregate our complaints and focus them at the proper authorities. Is there any one thread yet where we can do this - i.e. focus & coordinate a collective response? or Has anyone taken action to contact any authorities for themselves yet?

||bit

I informed the real Ari about this thread and the whole story, I guess he will made some justice action too. Anyway if this guy ( thomas Van Riper seem his real identity, google will give you same head than the picture with license plate) was frauding using my name company I wont let this happend without sentence... Specially he's american also easy to reach...real name, real face, he have a shop physical...Well I'm just sad for ppl who paid with BTC as they will be never refund and it will be hard to proof anything with BTC as ever...

Seem Thomas Van Riper is his real name, this is now confirmed. Free for Ari or customers of bAsic scammed to continu the process... Anyway this scam case will be more to easy to fix than some others...Good luck for people scammed in BTC to recover their funds (I never ordered from bAsic)

With no other known source of income, it looks like them bitcoins Tom has is going to go toward food to feed 6 hungry individuals, rent/mortgage, utilities, insurance, did I mention food?, car payment(s), groceries, clothing for growing children, and more food.

During the course of being funny, above, I just realized something. For him to cash out any significant coins, he may have to go through a known clearinghouse. Something to think about.

Think harder. Bitcoins are easy to launder.

Laundering is easy. Protecting your family is more difficult. His whole family is easily uncovered using Google and Facebook. Though his family is not poor, Tom seems to prefer renting low profile housing and has moved frequently over the years.

I can see clearly now:

Tom: "Wait, the electric utility bill is included in the monthly rent? I'll take it! When can I move in?"

A couple of months later, Landlord says: "I'm sorry, but you have been using a lot more electricity than my prior tenants; I'm sending you a bill for what you owe me".

The next day, Tom is gone!

He got the licence plate in March last year.  He was still using the Fulton Street address for his PC repair business late last year but the website for that business is now gone.  It's still a reasonable starting point for lawyers, though.

How do people think they can totally get away with scamming a bunch of people with vast computer knowledge unless they are single and willing to leave the country...quickly.

I mean this community is easy to scam because of greed, but once you have the loot you need to skeedaddle.

Hell hath no fury like a nerd with internet access...

Well it's not like any of those who have successfully scammed the community so far have had to go into hiding...

I'm sure there are secret underground bunkers all over the world where Trendon Shavers, Bruce Wagner, Tom Williams, Zhou Tong, Amir Taaki and Co. sit around scared witless of the mighty internet nerds revenge.

For, verily, it shalt come to pass in the days of the digit-age, that HE shalt send his virtualous minions and exact revenge upon the evil hearted. And HE shalt cry out "Beware, evildoers, that art now in my domain! My name is LEGION, for we are many. Let us send forth the spike!" and there shalt be wailing and the gnashing of teeth heard all across the lands.
