I have been scammed quite a few times till now but nothing like this one.
So, here is the entire story.

I got scammed last year by this user https://localbitcoins.com/accounts/profile/TanishaRoy/ when I was selling BTC on LBC.
Now I know that he is a fraud and was selling dogs on quickr and asking those dog buyers to deposit funds into my bank account.
This Indian guy named Ravindra Kumar Tanisha (more details about the scam can be found here http://www.livelifeandexpress.com/2016/09/online-scam-behind-adoption-beware.html).

I received money from 10-12 different people from all over India and gave him BTC every time. I was very honest and never questioned about origin of funds (that was my biggest mistake and I paid a lot of money for it)
After 3 weeks my bank account was frozen and when enquired I found out that one of these dog buyers had opened police complaint against me and police has asked my bank to freeze my account (that's the worst phase of my life till now).
I was in different city and this police order came to my bank from different city. On the very last day when I was about to visit this particular police station to find out more about the case and resolve the issue, I luckily got a call from the girl who has opened this police complaint. After talking with her I found about what was happening and she asked to me refund her money which I did.

Few days later two more buyers contacted me and told the same and asked me to issue them refund which I did.
Till now it's been a loss of INR 70k for me.

So, I need some help to find more about this guy and ask him to refund my btc. He is not picking up my phone calls. I don't have his address and lbc and police didn't help me at all.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Few days back I received this email on my work email id and asked me to call on mobile number +91-8610443520 and asked me to return him 50% amount that as per him he has sent to my bank account.

I lost amount of Rs.3 lakhs to this account. With help of my CBI friend I tracked the details of you. I raised the complaint there. I will send you mail from my official id on Monday.

This is the below PM that someone on the forum sent me regarding the above two addresses.







Hello All,




Can you please help me to identify these 2 addresses. I would like to know the name of the person to whom they belong. If it's not possible then every information related to these 2 addresses would be welcome.




3FDe6JQ6av7xoDWNL6xmSogDysrt8UUsex




3BtEAeNFUdM5gfFnTAVWu8jCEAWxNNSmCy




Thanks a lot in advance guys!








Hi there,




Seen your post, you seem kinda cool (not involved in bs) hope this info can help you.




I hate someone getting scammed :mad:  I bear no responsibility for this information :




3FDe6JQ6av7xoDWNL6xmSogDysrt8UUsex  an exchanger Vilkov.com +380 (63) 363-44-44 Kiev, Darnytskyi raion, vulytsia Arkhitektora Verbytskoho, 32A, of. 311




3BtEAeNFUdM5gfFnTAVWu8jCEAWxNNSmCy  Easy Crypto Coin a mining co which looks scammy as heck But, whatever ECC was called before is where to start (sorry I can't spend time more diggin)




IF this does help you........all I ask is do the same for someone else  Cheesy




Peace!




MB2U


You said that 3FDe6JQ6av7xoDWNL6xmSogDysrt8UUsex belongs to Vilkov and 3BtEAeNFUdM5gfFnTAVWu8jCEAWxNNSmCy to some ECC but it seems to be wrong, because https://www.walletexplorer.com states that they belong to the same wallet and judging by activity, it's a wallet of some service, that isn't directly linked to vilkov.




This should be the wallet of vilkov: https://www.walletexplorer.com/wallet/008d0b1404070b5c?from_address=12345678932gNZNABzjRy99XyzVR3yhQ34




But I've never done any transaction tracing, so I might be wrong with this part.




Can you please tell me the source of your information?





Actually, yes you are wrong just a little.




I gave you information to START you on the path to finding out where your money is/went. From there YOU have to figure it out.  Again, I only set you on the path.




I catch scammers, if you can tell from my past postings.  I cannot give you my source otherwise, it will be harder to catch the next scammer.




Anyways, I hope you do eventually solve your problem.  I've done all I can to help you.




Best Wishes

MB2U


Your information should make some logical sense also. That's when I can do some research.





Then please disregard the information I gave.  My apologies for wasting your time.

Hey sorry I almost forget about this !
1. Why don't you share that number with cops ? They can track calls,location and all the related connections.
2. You can ask that girl how did they find him on quickr or for his username/email on quickr ?
3. You know the system works in India,I doubt you'll get anything productive from here.The only resource you have which can link you to the final culprit is that phone number.

I have been scammed quite a few times till now but nothing like this one.
So, here is the entire story.

I got scammed last year when I was selling BTC on LBC.

This Indian guy named Ravindra Kumar Tanisha who is from Meerut, UP with mobile number +91-8610443520 used to buy BTC from me. He bought BTC for around 3 weeks from me.

Later on I found that he is a fraud and was selling dogs on quikr and asking those dog buyers to deposit funds into my bank account.

I received money from 10-12 different people from all over India and gave him BTC everytime. I was very honest and never questioned about origin of funds (that was my biggest mistake and I paid a lot of money for it)

After 3 weeks my bank account was frozen and when enquired I found out that one of these dog buyers had opened police complaint against me and police has asked my bank to freeze my account (that's the worst phase of my life till now).

I was in different city and this police order came to my bank from different city. On the very last day when I was about to visit this particular police station to find out more about the case and resolve the issue, I luckily got a call from the girl who has opened this police complaint. After talking with her I found about what was happening and she asked to me refund her money which I did.
Few days later two more buyers contacted me and told the same and asked me to issue them refund which I did.

Till now it's been a loss of INR 70k for me.

So, I need some help to find more about this guy and ask him to refund my btc. He is not picking up my phone calls. I don't have his address and lbc and police didn't help me at all.

Any help would be much appreciated.

You should confront the cops about the situation. You could have also explained what happened to the buyers who got refunds so that maybe they could have worked with you on fixing this issue. If you file a police complaint and give them enough evidence, they may be able to open an investigation against this scammer.

This area is up for grabs! PM me if you're interested.

1. Cops won't take so much pains for a common Indian unless I offer them bribe.
2. His quickr account has been deleted.
3. Yes, I checked that on True Caller and its says some "Jayaraman Chennai Cu" in India
