Hi guys,

I'm in the process of finding and suing Shylok, real name Aihab Abogalil, from Greece and/or Israel.
Maybe he's active on more names, so here is the story, if you recognize parts of it, be careful.

- He offered to sell me 300 BlockErupter and USB hubs
- At that time i hadn't heard of Escrow yet so I agreed to buy from him
- First he wanted Western Union and pushed me transfering money on a sunday, which I didn't do
- His promise was he had guys at his warehouse who could ship for him, even on sunday evening
- It started to feel dodgy so we agreed on me paying half in BTC, him shipping a part, me paying the rest, him shipping the rest. This was my mistake for being too greedy to get the Erupters, I should've stopped it here
- He sent me a copy of his ID (see below) and a mail from an official DELL employee account (or at least thats what it looks like)
- 4 BTC were paid, he stayed in touch a little coming up with weird excuses for not shipping
- Excuses were he was out of fiat money to pay for shipping, no time, etc
- After a few days he stopped replying
- I made him a deadline to ship something or send the BTC back but no reply
- A little later I got a mail from his hotmail account, where a "friend" of his told he was out of the country because a family relative died
- I said I would give him a week to sort things
- After not hearing anything again I made him another deadline, which just passed

I've edited this and other posts in this thread to remove some personal information from both him and me.

Buyers: please be aware and don't be as stupid as I was
Scammers: be warned, not everybody will just accept being scammed...

On his facebook are messages of him buying a new computer, a new phone, a new Versace suit. Guess how he got that money huh... And he has blocked me now, so seems it's really this guy.

I'm already taking legal steps with the police and Dutch ambassy in Greece and his employer. I'm not posting more details here in public as I'm sure he'll read this at some point.

What kind of information are you looking for? It looks like you have pretty much everything you need.

It's still not accurate enough even if that was from his house.

How is it not accurate? I posted the address with it (edited in the post). If you contact the authorities,give his name and location they will find him for sure.
I didn't set the marker in Bing Maps. Facebook linked it there. If he used WiFi to post it, it'll certainly be his address.

It points to the middle of a street. He could be up to (i'm just putting random numbers here) 500m, 1000m or more away. Unless the police does something, this area isn't that much helpful. One would have to cover many houses and buildings and thousands of people.

You do know the police can search in their system at what address someone is registered right? If you give them an approximate location, they can verify if you're talking about the same person.

Just got contacted by 2 other people he scammed.

All information will go to the Greek police and we'll take it from there. I'll include the address location and point where we got it from so the police knows it's not the exact address but it's the area.

Keep the information coming guys!
