Someone who live in Athens could call the Police to get this scammer and at least give us our money back!

I'm definitely following this thread.  This is going to be so much fun.  Yea, best of luck catching him.  He's lucky he ran into you, a nice guy who calls the police.  If he ended up scamming somebody with a different "idea" of justice... oh boy.  Because he DEFINITELY is not very careful about his personal information.


Just a thought:  What if every time he scams, he uses this name and passport picture (one he might have found somewhere online), and this is all leading to some random dude who has no idea what's going on?  I know it's unlikely since he's bragging of getting a recent new computer... but still.

You'd be amazed how many people leave so much info about themselves. People are completely careless since the rise of social media.

Again... I'm really hoping that he is not using some poor soul's name and passport photo.  Again, doubt it because he is cheering himself on his new alienware and stuff, but still, a smart thief, when asked for his passport picture, will usually find many such pictures on a quick google search...

There are too many things that are linked to eachother. On his ICQ page is also a picture of him, his Skype dat of birth matches and plenty of other details that are easily overlooked. This guy has scammed people on a WoW forum 2 years ago and probably thought he could get away with it again.

You're already doing it by promoting scam on your signature.

Actually no.
Google yourself, your emails and all of that. I'm doing this on a regular basis. If you're doing it right you're safe.

Thanks everybody for all your support in getting information and just messages saying you hope we're catching him.

I'm going to stop sharing details from here as the legal processes are starting.
All I can say here is that his boss emailed me asking me to call him, and my embassy has agreed to help me with reporting him to the greek police.

I hope he's reading this and starting to shit his pants.

Major steps in this process will be placed in future updates (as long as it's allowed by the police etc.)
