Behold Adam Mcloughlin!

http://s10.postimg.org/c1f1f1y9x/531598_4032106914209_1404277481_n.jpg

A friend of mine was scammed on eBay recently for £240 following the classic chargeback fraud. Disturbingly, they moved the BTC to an account (1LRRMtR4eaCGWTJToGxHsUki1aHCiqUMft) that has around £15k worth of BTC - they may well have scammed people for that amount! Most scammers try to hide their identity but apparently not in this case. All information presented here is publicly available and sourced from numerous directories and account profiles.

By posting their details below I hope to make people aware that Adam is a scammer and prevent further scams:

That's even better - what he did is more shameful to family members than friends anyway.

Good question.

My friend deleted their PayPal in disgust after they were scammed but they were able to send me screenshots of the scammer sending them an eBay message and reversing the payment after receiving the bitcoins. There are several things here that guarantee Adam is a scammer and not someone who had their PayPal and eBay hacked:

1. PayPal chargeback scams are extremely common and the scumbag's weapon of choice when it comes to scamming.

2. In light of the above, PayPal chargeback scams for Bitcoins are notorious - a google search will reveal just how bad this situation is.

3. If Adam was the victim of a hacker - why did he reverse the transaction minutes after receiving the Bitcoins? Why did they not contact the seller?

4. I've looked into Adam's details and I can see he works in IT at Ricoh in Birmingham. Evidently Adam does therefore know a few things about computers - ergo he is aware of the value of Bitcoin and how to scam people through the internet.

Tonight I will send a message to every single one of Adam's friends linking to this thread so that he is exposed as the cowardly scammer that he is. For the record - I am not the individual scammed and my hatred for scammers stems from a broken promise involving a Saudi bank account and a princess from Lagos who declared her undying love for me. The purpose of revealing this information is to ensure that Adam cannot exploit anyone else in the future. The person scammed is currently in the process of filing to take Adam to the small court and sue for fraud.

Definitely a drug addict. This guy is ugly, also. He looks like the type who wouldn't survive going to court though, so sue the fuck out of him and get the BTC back.

You're on a witch-hunt with nothing but speculative information.  None of your points are definitive evidence that this was the individual who scammed your friend.  Your first two points have no initial relation to the individual Adam, their just points about paypal scams.  The third point is easily explained if the user has email notices of paypal payments, seeing a payment go out would make me initiate a dispute quickly.  The third point is pure assumptions.

Stop while you're ahead.  You should get definitive proof that this guy was the scammer before you go and try to ruin his reputation.  You dont have that, I think its sick that the mods let this post stand.

In the interest of the scammed party's legal proclivities I have reneged on any activity that could be founded on speculative legality. I have sent Adam's father a message with a link to this page. Hopefully they can speak to Adam and mitigate the incoming criminal record. Otherwise, the scammed party is taking them to court. Let's see if the magistrate is as stupid as PayPal.

Yours dearest,

Me

Poor guy if he got hacked, if he really did scam what a scum bag.

This is something that I did discuss at length with my friend. There's simply too much evidence showing that this is a scam - evidence I have made clear earlier.

Evidence is based on proven facts.  You did not witness the individual committing any crimes, you can't say you have clear evidence.

Again why in the end I say simply. . Be safe.  This could easily backfire.  Though I do understand the reasons behind posting dox. You must realize you are not the law... If you have solid proof then be ballzy and post dox. Otherwise you might be borrowing trouble.  Case in example. .. the poor bastard everyone called and made threats to during the pirate40 drama.

LOL you really think he's going to get in trouble for posting dox? Nobody is going to jack shit about it, bet on that. That's like telling somebody "Be careful about scamming .01 BTC, because you could get into a lot of trouble! ROFL... wait, nevermind I just realized your post was meant to be a joke. Sorry, I'm slow this morning.. still waking up. ugh.

paypal accounts couldn't get hacked could they?  Just throwing it out there that you could be posting a hacking victims personal info.

Good question.

My friend deleted their PayPal in disgust after they were scammed but they were able to send me screenshots of the scammer sending them an eBay message and reversing the payment after receiving the bitcoins. There are several things here that guarantee Adam is a scammer and not someone who had their PayPal and eBay hacked:

1. PayPal chargeback scams are extremely common and the scumbag's weapon of choice when it comes to scamming.

2. In light of the above, PayPal chargeback scams for Bitcoins are notorious - a google search will reveal just how bad this situation is.

3. If Adam was the victim of a hacker - why did he reverse the transaction minutes after receiving the Bitcoins? Why did they not contact the seller?

4. I've looked into Adam's details and I can see he works in IT at Ricoh in Birmingham. Evidently Adam does therefore know a few things about computers - ergo he is aware of the value of Bitcoin and how to scam people through the internet.

Tonight I will send a message to every single one of Adam's friends linking to this thread so that he is exposed as the cowardly scammer that he is. For the record - I am not the individual scammed and my hatred for scammers stems from a broken promise involving a Saudi bank account and a princess from Lagos who declared her undying love for me. The purpose of revealing this information is to ensure that Adam cannot exploit anyone else in the future. The person scammed is currently in the process of filing to take Adam to the small court and sue for fraud.

You're on a witch-hunt with nothing but speculative information.  None of your points are definitive evidence that this was the individual who scammed your friend.  Your first two points have no initial relation to the individual Adam, their just points about paypal scams.  The third point is easily explained if the user has email notices of paypal payments, seeing a payment go out would make me initiate a dispute quickly.  The third point is pure assumptions.

Stop while you're ahead.  You should get definitive proof that this guy was the scammer before you go and try to ruin his reputation.  You dont have that, I think its sick that the mods let this post stand.

The first two points do indeed relate to the individual Adam since what relates to Adam is the textbook execution of the ubiquitous Bitcoin PayPal scam. What pertains to Adam's character is quite irrelevant. It would be asinine to suggest that the fact that Adam's actions followed the Bitcoin scam blueprint to the letter is an irrelevant piece of information. Your logic would appear absurd when applied to other criminal proceedings.

The third point contained no assumptions so your refutation is simply wrong and circumvents the real point of providing an adequate explanation for details that are otherwise inexplicable.
