    Hey, my name's Tony and I have signed up to this forum specifically to post
    details about an ex-friend of mine who is attempting to garner investment
    from users of this forum and then run off with the money. Before I call
    him out I'd like to post a few details about myself since I am new here
    and you know nothing about me yet.

    As I said, my name's Tony and I reside in Florida and have done ever
    since I was 6. I am embarrassed to say so but I am a convicted drug dealer
    and have served 9 months in prison for possession of marijuana (got caught
    with 18 grams and got out very lightly). Since then I have not touched
    drugs and have opened a small cab business with a few employees - nothing
    major but it gets me by.

    So anyway, back to the main point of this post. When I was 24 and dealing,
    I met a guy named John (USProxyKing) who used to occasionally buy weed off me
    I knew I wasn't his main dealer because he only ever used me for 1-2 weeks at a
    time and then he wouldn't speak to me for a few months and then the cycle would
    continue.

    So anyway, I lose touch with the guy for like a year and a half and then he suddenly
    starts buying a ton of shit (primarily coke) off me. When I say a ton, I mean at
    least 4 ounces and sometimes this guy was seeing me twice per day. I knew he was
    fucked - one day he met me and he was literally on deaths doorstep. I refused to
    sell him anything but he would hassle me every day so I continued dealing to this
    guy until I found out he was in rehab.

    Soon after he was out of rehab he called me asking me if I was still dealing,
    I said "yes" and he bought some pot, nothing major. So I give the guy his buds
    and he starts talking to me explaining how he's just finished his rehab and he never
    wants to get hooked on anything again. Good for him, I thought, and we talked
    casually for a bit. I told the guy I had to go meet another client and he suggested
    we meet up some time - I thought nothing of it, just small talk so I said "sure" and
    went off to my duties.

    A few days later I get a call from him, not a pot-craving but
    him asking me to meet up with him and a few lads. At first I thought "is this guy
    serious?" but at the time I was suffering from severe depression and was quite vulnerable.
    So I said yes and the next thing I know we're at a brewery chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool.
    I head home the night after thinking this guy's pretty chill but I don't speak to the guy
    for about a month. I get a call from my partner saying one of our packages from cali got
    seized and I shit my pants cause it had my address on it. I knew I made a fucking stupid
    move so I needed to move all our shit out fast (about $1.4k of marijuana and a little coke).

    So I look through my phone panicking and see John's number. I ring him (second big mistake)
    asking if I could store some stuff at his place but he starts worrying that he might get caught
    with intent to supply and with his rehab record it won't go down well. I eventually managed to
    encourage him to store the stuff at his place under the condition that he could smoke $400 worth
    and I would collect the rest some time the next week. When I get back home the cops are already
    there and they've raided my house. They managed to find 18g worth of marijuana in my house and
    arrested me. As I said earlier, I got sent down for 9 months and I promised myself not to deal
    again. When I got out I literally had nothing so my first resort is heading back to John's house
    and seeing if he still has my stash. I get down there and luckily he's still living there and
    luckily he's smoked all the pot as well (if he hadn't I'd of probably got back into dealing).

    So I told him I still want my $1000 back and he agrees to give it back to me but not at the minute
    as he didn't have it. So I started scabbing (cabbing illegally) and then once I got enough dough
    I set up a small cab business in FL. So a year later, I'm getting by and go ask John for my money.
    He tells me he hasn't got it and since I needed some good Karma, and as he had unknowingly saved me
    from getting back into the game, I told him "forget it" and he thanked me. While I was at his place,
    I saw another guy I used to deal to who I will refer to as "friend" since he doesn't want his name
    put up here. I assumed they were smoking pot or whatever. So as I'm leaving, friend also leaves
    and tells me that John was bullshitting me and he's just secured about $30,000 by scamming people online.

    I lose it and head towards the door but friend stops me and tells me it's not worth it. So, as I'm
    speaking to friend he gives me more details (this forum) and tells me he's hosting a conference in
    about an hour. We head to friend's house and set up a Skype account, add John and then get invited
    to the conference. We listen in and I add a few people from the conference. I initially thought friend
    was lying so I mess around with a few of the people. We find out that some of them have already invested
    and the minimum investment is $5,000... So here I am posting the thread on this guy. If you invested,
    I'm really sorry but I don't have many more details on this guy (I don't even know his surname)
    apart from his address. Also, he's in possession of $3k worth of shrooms - I'm assuming he's dealing
    now since no one person would ever need that much at their disposal.

    Another thing worth mentioning... In one post he stated his brother pretended he stole his computer or
    something? Again, this is bullshit - he doesn't get on with his brother but his brother had nothing
    to do with it. He in fact failed to pay credit back on a computer he bought and tried to change the
    name on the record (something along the lines of that) and then he refused to give it back. I'm not
    quite sure on the exact details but I know for sure it wasn't his brother who said he stole it.
    I'm not sure whether I care anymore. The fact that some people fell for this scam makes me lose faith
    in humanity. There were also a few people calling him out in the forum but people still invested.
    I guess those who invested can see this as an expensive lesson - don't trust anyone.

    tl;dr - If you sent USProxyKing any money, you got scammed big time, if you haven't... don't.

    That was quite a read. Do you have any proof though? I mean, anything concrete. Pictures, log files, anything else? All people would have to go on is your word, and since nobody here really knows you, that isn't much.

    I am not saying you aren't telling the truth or anything, but making a shitlist thread here without proof is like playing russian roulette with just yourself - doesn't end well.

    Interesting read. But like above said, if proof isn't posted- it is likely this thread will just be removed.

    Can someone put a link of this thread in the JV thread started by USproxyking? I don't have the post count to do so. Thank you in advance.

    I can tell you I dealt with him on a DSL project as well and it was a scam. He lied to me time after time. I talked to him about the JV he had listed and it did not make sense.

    Wow, removing this thread is like letting a shark lose in a fish tank and expecting fish to live. This guy is a Class A scammer, I don't want him getting his hands on any more.

    I'm working on getting some proof but at the moment I don't have any and probably won't get any. The last thing you do as a dealer is document anything. If you told me 3 years ago any of my customers, and this guy in particular, would screw me over I wouldn't believe you. I can't express how much of a lying back stabber this guy is in words.

    Will keep you updated if I manage to get any proof. Gimme a few days.

    Apparently his JV has something to do with robocalling - cool sound fair - 100% ROI per day should of raised a lot of red flags - and while it did raise a few, everyone bashed on the guys who raised them which is sad.

    To put this into perspective, if you invested $3k, you're gonna get $1m back in a year. It all just seems to good to be true even for someone like me who just signed up today and hasn't dabbled in any of this stuff.

    Seems like he just feeds all his partners lies.

    The shitlist has rules .. But I would like this thread to stay up till the guy makes some response .... As this is BHW not HYIP -scam world. ... And allowing members to get scammed should not be allowed.

    Anyway let's see what the mods think.

    I'm trying to reply but this moderation system lets nothing through...

    At Mudbutt: It's sad. What's worse is when i tried telling the investors on skype they acted like I was nuts and started correcting my grammar and defend-ing the guy.

    I believe you. When I first inquired to his 'investment' I just wanted to see what it was all about. I just didn't see a way where you could get that much wealth that fast on an investment unless you won the lottery or was that guy from that movie limitless. It did seem fishy. And somewhere in his thread I believe it was people were complaining and saying how he and his partner didn't have any plans or anything laid out and they kept pushing back the date by months or whatever. Sounds like a classic scam to me. Make people think that in say 2 weeks you will start, they invest, and then a problem occurs and now it will take 6-8 weeks.

    I knew that JV was fishy from the beginning. I still don't get why members on here backed him up every time a flag was raised.
