    No that is my name, he made it look like he was sending the payment to me. His name was Scott.

    Emp, I bank with the Halifax, and they told me that while it is just my word against his - nothing can be done, maybe that will change if enough of us put a case forward and explain that this guy is ripping off many people and using a Halifax account?....

    I've contacted my bank and put in a complaint which they will pass on to Halifax - if they see his account as fraudulent then they will freeze it and hold any funds that are inside of it. From there who knows what they will do, maybe they will trace it to his other accounts and stop them too, etc.

    Richard, call the Halifax and ask to speak to the fraud dept, and explain you experience quoting his sort code and account number, in fact I would suggest that to all that have had an experince with him, the more that do it, the more chance we have of the Halifax doing something about it!...

    Thanks Canada for the advice.

    I already have called their fraud department but the data protection act bla bla bla. No good.

    I know data protection is the barrier but if enough calls get logged to convince the Halifax that serious fraud is being committed using an account of their's, they have the power to freeze the assets (if they haven't already been transferred).

    This makes interesting reading:

    Damned spammers



    I am getting so fed up with the Nigerian Scam spammers. They have invaded places where they just have no damned business. No sane person would ever fall for this crap anyway. Heck we've all been tempted by stuff that's too good to be true. I was taken in by a UK con artist Scott Leigh Canarn who was jailed for a ponzi scheme after investigation by the UK Serious Fraud Office. His scheme was more credible than the Nigerian Scam.

    I completely agree, with the information we have we should go down the PI route, please put your name forward if you want to pursue that option, we'll get our money back at least..

    Ultravox how much do you think that would cost?

    It costs more if you aren't collecting money, because he's happier to accept 10% of what he collects.
    I'll dig it out in an hour or so.

    Thanks very much for that Ultravox.

    So who is willing to get a little consortium together to track this guy and retrieve our money?

    Please m8 if you could elaborate more on " because he's happier to accept 10% of what he collects. "

    Does this mean he either takes 10% (or as you stated in a later tread 20% now) and we dont pay anything else.

    Or do we have to pay 300-500 Euro and then on top of that he will ask for a 20% of what money he might get out of Scott?

    How did he go about things from your own experience? How long did he take etc.
    Knowing we got a whole lot of info about this guy, how long you reckon he could take?

    Thanks again,

    John.:niceone:

    It's now 300-500 + 20% of what he collects.
    Took him less than a week, had my money the week after.
    However, I had the guys National Tax card, so it was much easier to trace him.

    OK.

    Not bad, that's pretty fast :) I bet you was happy getting your cash back and knowing the scammer got his :D

    Any ways I think we will ask for a discount since we are in recession time :( we need to save every little penny.

    I hope he will be able to accept £300 plus 15% of £4725 which is around £700 so if every one here wants to try and get their money back minus 15% and 50-80 pounds for the P.I service.

    write to me or paulgreeny83,

    my msn/email is ******************

    One of us will post further details once we have spoken with the PI company.

    Thnx again ultra, God bless ya!

    See above. Scott Leigh Canarn. Also take a look at the screenshot I sent you all. It has SL Canarn in the details.

    Another tactic I'm aware of that has been used to get back money;
    Try emailing Scott and telling him you have all his details and will post all over the internet. If they are a 16yr old kid doing a few scams on the side, this will definitely give them a kick.
