You are nicer than I am bro. I would have responded with something like:

Word, I agree.  If you have dox on a scammer then that's when the gloves come off and the tables turn.  But bravo to the op here for pushing back.   Some is always better than none.  I sometimes wonder what the bitcointalk scammers look like, what countries they're from, and everything else.

they start to figure why not do it again and then again and so forth.  There might be a pause between the first two, but that is only because he is scared and then once he gets away with it that second time.

Some of this story happened in this very forum! Won't tell you usernames though

https://blog.haschek.at/2016/how-a-scammer-stole-500-dollars-from-me

I hate clicking links that redirect me to blogs.

Why don`t you describe your story on your thread description OP?

And why don`t you tell the username of that scammer?

Most of the scammers are kids or teens. Angry

Well, hopefully not. He may be scared now, but I do hope that it's not just that, instead he already did learn the lesson and don't do it again. @OP you did great, I think that time you're not thinking so much about the money, but your concern is to make him understand and realize that what he did is wrong and he must not do it again.

That's quite a resourceful dude (the writer of the article, not the scammer). Hats off to him. Glad he was able to mostly recover his losses.

Nice story with a nice enough ending for both parties  Smiley  Personally in a situation like this, I would take full responsibility for my decision to send first. I would write off the $500 as a loss and move on. That the other guy later on turns to be a scammer has nothing to do with my initial decision to go first. I basically took a $500 gamble that he was trustworthy and lost. It has absolutely nothing to do with the other guy.

Very good, just one question; in case i want to record someone's IP, what tool i have to use(exactly like you made)? and, if he change his IP, what would happen?

Well I used my Open Source image hosting site PictShare. You can buy your own domain, host your own instance and only share images via your server. This way you have the IP address of everyone looking at the pictures.

This of course only works on bad scammers since the "better" ones use Tor or proxies so you don't know where they are connecting from

Thanks! Well this one came from Arizona, US and is originally from india

I think that scammers can live anywhere not only "poor countries". Many might hide behind a proxy from said country - you can never be sure

TL;DR: Won gift cards, sold to scammer, he deleted his accounts and never paid, i hunted him down, told his brother, got everything back

He also gave me his credentials for his account in this forum (it's not the one I'm currently using), I cancelled "deals" in progress and going to delete the whole shameful account soon.

It's funny really his account is full of posts where he wanted to trade something and then posted things like "sold, can be closed" when I definitley see that nobody ever contacted him. I asked him what's up with that and he said he wanted do build trust on this platform by faking sales but he didn't get rep votes for that, so that was kind of useless

Forget telling his parents he should have been taught a lesson by getting slapped stupid Cheesy

Yes Crime should be stopped at the beginning. Getting hit in the beginning is a great way to stop a cycle that could go on and on until an eventual major fall. Otherwise it will become an habit and the amount of crime/ fraud / scam will  just go On and On.

  • Your privacy settings on facebook are only as good as your friend's
  • Don't re-use usernames on the web (creed is your enemy)
  • Use an escrow service if you want to make trades via bitcoin

This is very right, most people don't aware about how important your privacy is. They linked all of their accounts on the web without realizing that people can easily find them and know who they are.

Woah this is only few of the stories that are making my attention caught and taking my time just to read the whole article.

Kudos to Christian Haschek he has a future to become an online investigator. I like the way he investigates all those accounts of the scammer.

And very funny that the scammer became scared in the end.

All ended well but is it good decision not to tell his parents what happened? So, thus he will not learn the lesson and he will think that can doing bad things without getting punished. I'm not claiming that this kid is a criminal but you are probably not the first nor the last he scamed. And there is no guarantee that he will not continue doing it. Maybe his parents don't have the clue what is he doing on Internet and this may end bad.

Ok, I have read some article a while ago, where a killer were caught for theft as a child and then released back into his guardians care. The

guardian then assaulted him and he ended up on the streets. He then kept on stealing to survive, and one day broke into a house, where a

women were sleeping in one of the rooms. She heard something and then confronted him, a struggle occurred and he stabbed her to

death. So ask yourself... would this have turned out better, if the law entered at the very start? We do not know, and hope for the best

outcome.  Roll Eyes
