    Hi,

    I have been scammed by I guy who bought my ios keyword service. He placed a dispute on the payment on PayPal and won the case.

    That sucks sooo bad. Now I want to make his life miserable. I have his name, his address and a phone number. He lives in Chicago, so all Americans on BHW, what can I do with this information I have on him.

    The amount I lost was more than $5k, so you understand that I'm pissed off!

    I found his Twitter, linkedin, kickstarter account. I emailed him on his Gmail. He have now ended all those accounts.

    Please help me out here!

    What kind of help do you expect to get? There's not much anyone can do, unless you want to pay him a visit.

    Did it happen or originate from here? If not, well, you wasted your time posting. We are not Anonymous, we are not here for justice, we are here for money.

    Well, thanks for your answer.

    I won't be able to go and visit him (i live on the other side of our planet).

    I want everyone to know who this jerk are. I want to embarrass him. I want his mother to know how her son is. Do anyone here live in Chicago? Is it possible to find out if anyone else lives on the same address? Can I get hold of any of his relatives phone numbers?

    I guess it's real. I found his webpage and did a whois check. The address exist and when I search the phone number I get a hit on the guy.

    All that information is probably available though a variety of sources but, how much time and energy are you willing to spend on something that will get you no financial gain, especially when you are in a hole from this 5K+?

    I'd be hot as all get out too... probably a little hotter, but I don't know that for 5K I would do a whole lot as it just makes sense to find more business and make some cash.

    I don't think you have an any viable recourse honestly as it is not a lot of money and, like you say, you are on the other side of the planet.

    Give me his address, I will go round his house and sausage him in the face with my bellend. That gotta hurt.

    Seriously, some of these c$$ts fold if you threaten them with the police, they are just chances. Some don't.

    One thing I think I will do is to send a letter to the address with a flyer saying that he is a scammer and a picture (yeah, there is a picture from his now deactivated LinkedIn account). And then threaten that I will put this flyer up on the whole neighborhood (via a fiverr gig). If anyone did that to me, I would be embarrassed... :)

    Ah, that's to bad that I didn't do that. I got mail from PayPal that they where gonna take the money from my account. I did a withdrawal on the money I had left and got -$5000 on my account. Did not bother until I got a letter from the Swedish authority's that I had to pay the money. That sucks!

    dang, since you're out of the country I guess there really isn't much you can do. What's even worse is you provide a digital service - it's so hard to win a dispute if you don't send a physical product and get a signature upon receipt.

    Maybe micky is right. send him some threats saying you're gonna take him to small claims court or something. hire some debt collectors to harass him and his family.

    Avoid using PayPal's automated email submission center -- that email goes straight to New Delhi, India where you will get a prompt reply back that has nothing to do with what you asked in the first place. For faster results, email the following departments (where people with decision making authority can help you):


    [email protected] (Michael Moldenburg, Paypal Complaints)


    [email protected] (Scott Thompson, PayPal President)


    [email protected] (Mary Hentges, CFO PayPal)


    [email protected] (PayPal Office of Executive Escalations)


    [email protected] (Mike Vergara, Senior Director Accounts Protection)


    [email protected] (Catherine Wong, Senior Product Manager Merchant Services)
