    Hi everyone, unfortunately I have been scammed by someone who reached out to me after seeing my post on TWF. It was very naive of me but lesson learnt. Its a guy from India that messages you saying he can get cheap electronics. He goes by the name of Gaurav. Im sending this so everyone is aware as he will try to hunt members from this forum. I will post his email and details if forum rules allow

    Hi, what do you mean? If you can give me further information it would be very helpful. Do you have any of his real information so I could report it? What did he do to you?

    Looking at ChanV thread, this is a serial scammer. I lost £350. ChanV sent £350 to M Hamza. If I could get more info from ChanV we could find who this person is. From the account and sort code we could find out who M Hamza is. I will report this person to police, action fraud etc and from his details we could find the other fraudster.

    My only other info I have is similar. Probably fake email address he contacted me through etc. He said he will pay me by Sunday, however, I dont trust him. Ill be contacting my bank and telling him about M Hamza and acc and sort code that scammed ChanV. I believe this is a big scam gang. From those details they should be able to trace him and get his real details.

    this guy stole 460 € from me but i will send it to voodoo. I’m investigating him with a friend. I do not want to do more information but the administrator of TWF must take this seriously and protect our data because this guy I did not trust him from the start I played his game but he will end up in wheelchair all his life.
    ChanV likes this.

    [QUOTE = "Ace-Baron, post: 1383244, membre: 104948"] Mes seules autres informations que j'ai sont similaires. Probablement une fausse adresse e-mail, il m'a contacté, etc. Il a dit qu'il me paierait dimanche, mais je ne lui fais pas confiance. Je vais contacter ma banque et lui parler de M Hamza et du code d'accès et de tri qui a fraudé ChanV. Je crois que c'est un gros gang d'escroquerie. À partir de ces détails, ils devraient pouvoir le retrouver et obtenir ses vrais détails. [/ QUOTE]he lies. you're never going to get your money back and he doesn't live in India too. he is a scam

    We take this VERY seriously and took the appropriate action to remove the user from the forum as soon as it became evident he was a scammer.

    However as the user was not a registered advertiser no one should have been dealing with him, that is the risk you take and I'm not sure how the forum is responsible for your lack of due dilligence when dealing with a random person on the internet.

    We cannot send an email to hundreds of thousands of users over this single matter, that is a ludicrous suggestion.

    If users follow the rules, there would not be these types of issues (dealing only with registered advertisers).

    Hopefully I can get money back from bank, even though I paid by bitcoin. I'm going to tell them M hamza and ejaz Ahmed details. Any other names?
