It was an awesome scam if you look at it and pull your big boy pants up a little. There are several questionable members on this site that have joined during the same time, "bought" from him and so on. All part of the scam, most times scammers do not work alone. Watch TV and you will see the shows about this stuff. THEY DONT WORK ALONE!

For those that actually lost money I hope that it wasn't your last dime as you shouldnt have been buying cards anyways.
Those that bought the last of his mystery lots have only gotten tracking, and have not received anything, so they might be ok as of now. Not sure bout anyone else though.

I am not sure everyone on that list is from here. I could only hope he miscalculated the transfer timing and paypal got wind of it maybe from somewhere else instead. Maybe they had an internal flag once it reached an amount based on a couple early claims . Either one is a good reason to beat feet to "Hong Kong". The gig was up no matter how you slice it

What does going to Hong Kong have to do with anything, you act like he can't access a computer while he's there.

In the back of my mind I always thought to myself, man this guy could seriously screw over a ton of people.

I had always hoped I was wrong.

Lesson hopefully learned though. After everyone basically anointed him God, maybe people will think twice now.

To the OP. Since you guys talked pretty regularly, did he ever mention Hong Kong before today?

To all reading this thread, I suggest adding the first line of my sig to yours - I added it maybe 6 months ago after I was sick of seeing people unwittingly fooled into paying gift. Maybe it helps the next person realize that there is just too much risk involved.

for those who don't see this one that has been re-bumped, I feel the real part of the scam may have started in November to where it really is today:
Can someone answer me this?.....

Agreed, I always thought this guy was too good to be true.

Even though throwing thousands of dollars to a complete stranger, especially via gift, is very ill advised, I hope it works out for all involved.

My head is spinning right now.
