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.)

That's great to hear! I hope you can bring justice to this guy!
Let me know if you want me to edit my posts (and delete the private info).

EDIT:  I bet he is reading all this: Last Active: Today at 10:29:39 AM Grin

For legal reasons I'll be removing all personal information from this thread. Everyting is written down (and sent to the right people who will take it from here)
I've also written down the names of people who have assisted me, I'll contact you by PM in a little while.

I'll keep this topic open to post updates. First to inform people who showed interest in this process and second to (hopefully) scare away some (potential) scammers so they'll think twice before trying to rip somebody off.

i got a PM from shylock as reply to my post here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=354554
maybe he can help? ;-)
he offers services to track down thieves (at least he should be capable to track down himself) ;-)

here his PM:
"hey mate , i saw you tread about the stolen btc ,
i work with some law enforcement agencies israelly and i have access to some tracking abilities that will make it very easy to track and catch your thief , even if he did it from a public wifi or something i can still track the physical address of his computer and match it with other networks , i will guarantee you that you will have your thief and i accept your offer of payment of 10 btc but i must insist on payment of half the ammount upfront to insure my work dont go for vain.
let me know if it suits you"

Moderator: could you please mark shylock as scammer?

Thanks for your input. The list of people he scammed, or tried to scam, keeps growing and growing.
Obviously, he doesn't work with "law enforcement agencies"

I'd only like to know the date/time when he sent this PM.

You know Bitcoin is officially a legit currency by the U.S. Supreme Court, so he can get sued, I hope you get that bastard OP.

I think the nature law is however hard on him. The stealing is not in accepted socially so he will get what he desirves. One wy or another.

I have however discovered another forum scammer. I think that there should be some approval before buying selling on this forum.

I think that doesn't happen. The forum clearly states they won't remove posts from scammers or such and they leave it up to everybody else to use their brains.
The only thing we can do is use the trust option which is clearly visible once it's negative.

BIG UPDATE

Just got a call from his boss. They checked his email and verified he used his work email to scam people.
Following this he got instantly FIRED.

If you're reading this; eat that bitch, but this was only step 1.

Now into suing him to get the actual money back. Fortunately, him being fired can actually work as proof against him, since his work has verified he used his work mail to scam people.

This is very good news. Congratulations on this! I hope you get your money back soon (and I hope he has to sell his Alienware computer in order to pay you back Grin).

Keep us updated!

Who helped you contact the company?  Wink
The address is below  Tongue.

Jk aside, good work. Tell the boss to notify the IT department so that they keep the emails.

Well in all honesty, he did himself by sending mails to me from his Dell address.

But no worries, all names are written down of people who helped me, when I get my money back I'll share Smiley

Dear Jeffrey,

I am also scammed by this person, I have sent him an ultimatium to either pay me back.. Or I will go after him. Could you contact me so we could coördinate our efforts? Great work on the employer part! karma is a b....

I have much written documentation, and I could verify/proof his identity from a prior identified bitcoin transaction. This guy is careless in scamming, funny thing is.. Even if it is concidered as a financial asset, good or immaterial asset.. He has broken the law.

Im also a Dutch native but I believe the forum would not appreciate a Dutch conversation here.

You can contact me on rotterdamfinance@gmail.com

Groeten / Kind regards,
