    This was probably the first time... I really grasped the magnitude of the internet, and how... dangerous/powerful it can be when put into experienced hands. This had to do with BassPro? Or however his nickname is... I'm sure a lot of you remember this story, but it just popped into my head. Don't remember how the story goes 100% but it went something like...

    BassPro wanted to do a JV with one of the 'reputable' members here
    BassPro gave the member a good chunk of money (high $x,xxx or something)
    That member dissapears
    BassPro gets dissapointed, and tells this to BHW...

    One thing lead to another...

    BassBro had his PayPal account name?
    Then they tracked his IP..
    From his IP they tracked his website
    from his website they tracked his name
    from his name they tracked his Facebook
    from his Facebook they got his pictures, phone number, where he goes to school, etc.
    Pictures were posted here.
    Some members from BHW went to see that dude..

    Money was returned?

    BassBro I think is in USA? Other member was in India... thousands miles away... yet it was all done fairly quickly...

    So much power... LOL

    If you're going to rip someone off, at least do it with an alias.

    That was easy, what was crazy is the story with the FBI and this Anonymous member, as I can remind.
    They got him, because he posted a picture of "just" the boobs of his girlfriend :D

    Check against all pictures on FB -> Profile found with 100% similarities -> busted!

    This way even 5 socks, 3 VPN's & neighbours WLAN won't help you ;)

    I come from a land downunder
    we had an irate (and incredibly stupid) customer yesterday threatening to "take down" our company. She was threatening Consumer affairs, department of fair trading and current affair TV shows(???)

    took me about 2 minutes to get to her facebook page and ebay dress store. she stupidly befriended my fish, so now I have her private phone number as well. All I had was her hotmail address.

    It all died down - but she has no idea how close she came to having to start a new business as you should never piss off a blackhatter if you have a online prescence.
