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.
