I may have missed something but....
- Is it on this forum that the scam took place? If so , have you listed this member's name, ? I think other members need to know who he is so at least they would not consider doing business with him, and maybe help more...
- If it wasnt through this forum, then what forum?
- What was the exact scam? There was a guy recently selling tuner or AMG wheels, then supposedly using DHL , then blaming on DHL loosing the " supposedly " shipped goods....I hope it is not the same guy!
- You must have his real name, if so , I am not an attorney, but I dont think there is anything wrong with listing it. Something not quite the same happened recently on the other forum ( MB ) and it was finally resolved peacefully on the forum.
I think asking for member's help makes total sense but more info need to be given ( maybe it is there and I didnt see it ) . You may find other members who have been scammed by your guy also. Scammers are two kinds I figured...stupid ones that leave themselves wide open , smarter ones ( like what happened to me ) who do this on regular basis and have tons of people looking for them. Stupidly I sold my Rolex to a " Collector " in Canada ( $3.5K ), who paid with a Forged bank draft, it took three months for my bank to realize it was fake! Tons of people after him, we know where he lives, plate # etc. and I still dont think we ll ever see that money!
At any rate, be safe, and best of luck. Do check with Internet Fraud Gov. Agencies, Mail Fraud units, in addition to the police. At best , you ll get your money, at worst, you ll stick the guy with a felony charge on his record.
Again, best of luck.
