As stupid as a pig can be, I was scammed twice by 2 persons in 1-2 months time. Why is it so difficult to be honest? I guess it is just human nature to be greedy. The first case happened on Nov 30th when I agree to buy 2 accounts for USD 250 from this person with an ICQ nickname Sxx Wxxxx. It was really a very fast transaction as he said he really needed the money in 2 days. Like a pig, I believed him. I gotten him to send me an invoice for the transaction which include his real life name, address, and telephone. As usual, I had all the ICQ conversations recorded. After the money was sent, I gave him the MTCN via ICQ then after I had no more reply. Straight away, I felt so disappointed and stupid. The second case make me felt very disppointed and sad. I HOPE ALL PEOPLE IN UO WILL BE AWARE OF THIS PERSON. I think many people know him, BCC Guild Leader. He is the person whom I lended him the LUNA plot which was in LUNA, right at WEST GATE. The one which is the Casino & Auction House run by the guild BCC. The Casino is recently interview by stratic, just in case you do not which one it is. It is on news in Great Lakes on Stratic. Just yesterday, he told me he did not enough money to pay for his internet connection and he had talked to the ISP to allow him a few more months to pay. But it was already due but he still did not have enough money to settle the bill. Looking at the successful opening of the casino and the auction, he asked me to help him with that. He offered me a list of rares for USD 225. And he also agreed to buy them back for USD 300 after 2 weeks. Like always, I asked him to send me an invoice with all those details. But this time I asked for a cell phone number. He gave me. I sent a text message to him to verify that he had the cell phone. Then today, after I gave him the MTCN and the password to collect the payment, he started to make up a story. He said while he was at WU, the staff there told him the payment was collected. According to WU procedure, the person who is collecting the payment will have to produce an identification card for verification. Without that, you will not get the payment. Furthermore, the payment I send has a password to it. Which means, the person not only need to provide an identity card but also the password for the collection. I sent him the MTCN and password via text message by cell phone at 1:17pm Michigan time. Then I try to get him on ICQ, but no reply. Then around 1:30pm i gotten a reply from him asking if i had sent the payment. So I told him I had sent the MTCN to him via text message, but he said he did not receive. So I send it again via ICQ. Soon after I given him all the details, he said he needed like 1 hr travelling time, to and fro, and asked me to wait. Then when he finally ICQ me again at around 3:30pm, he told me WU said the payment was collected. It is not about how much I lost due to being too stupid to trust just anyone over the internet. It is the kind of disppointment when you place your trust on that person and in return that person betray you. I will like stratics to take note of this. I hope all other UO Forums & Sites will take note of this person. A PERSON AS CUNNING AS HE IS, IS REALLY SCARY. I never thought of a person can be so good to you at one moment will stab you to death next moment. Should I be reporting this to the police? I know there are several website which people can lodge a complain for internet fraud. I HOPE AND WISH NO ONE ELSE WILL MAKE THE MISTAKES I MAKE. PLEASE ICQ ME IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO IT IS. I HAVE ALL THE ICQ HISTORY AND EMAILS SAVE.
