    Someone tried to scam me the other day on eBay. I paid with PayPal and after the transaction he deleted his complete eBay account. It was a fresh account. So I opened a dispute on PayPal and denied PayPal's access to my bank account. All my money is safe.

    So I started searching for this guy. I only have a yahoo email. But the email is not used for anything else. No online profile or social network. He's a ghost. So I went on yahoo and clicked the "forgot email" option. Well looks like there's a phone connected to this account for recovery.

    I want to call him and give him a good scare and tell him that I have his address, phone and everything and I'm going to hand everything to the police.

    Is there someone that can help me find his number?

    Forget about it man. You cannot prove anything so just let it go.

    Then giving him a call would scare him to death and think again before trying to scam someone else

    It's a Belgium's phone, I can see the first 2 digits and the last 2.
    04xx xx xx 37. Most likely 0472 xx xx 37.

    That is not what BHW is all about... we are about finding twists and turns to generate revenue though internet marketing.

    As to getting revenge on this person, that is not a BHW thing.

    We are anti-revenge, anit-negative SEO, anti-screwing a guy because we got screwed.

    Move on, forget it, live life and prosper.
