gtlobo is a scammer...beware!!!

daisbuysdaisbuys Posts: 167
Just to let you all know that I have been scammed by a member called gtlobo.

memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=108799

Basically He replied to my post regarding wanting CRC Vouchers.

I gave him £50 for £100's worth of chain reaction vouchers and he has not sent me the codes!!!

It has been 24 hours since payment, he's been on here numerous times today (last being 7pm) and has failed to reply to any of my messages!

I initially paid by pay pal goods, and he said it was pending at his end so refunded me the pay pal payment and asked me to do a bank transfer....to which I stupidly agreed to!

My own fault I suppose, as I never got a mobile number off him or even had photographic evidence of these vouchers, live and learn I suppose!

    Well have the courtesy to reply to the numerous messages AND emails I have sent you then! And you have my email by the way from the pay pal payments I sent you!

    You stated you had no internet just now by PM but you were still able to log in numerous times yesterday!!

    He's taking the right royal pi55!!

    Haven't heard from him since that last pm Thursday morning!

    He's even logged in tonight at 9pm, and not even a PM acknowledgment or anything!

    The guy is an utter ars3hole, and if you read this you can keep the £50 you stole of me and I hope karma bites you in the ars3 big time!!!!!

    And one more thing, here's the crime reference number for you as a friendly reminder that you will have a knock on your door very soon NFRC140200547373

    What an absolute jerk. You must be extremely hard up to steal £50! I can't understand why anyone would risk their freedom, and reputation for steal such paltry amounts. To me it seems he set out to scam from the beginning because I personally have never seen any payments under £500 take a long time to process, so his statement about the payment "pending" is utter nonsense.

    I really hoped it was some kind of misunderstanding but it seems like a clear cut case of gtlobo being a lowlife, scamming piece of pond scum! (I am sorry for the strong wording but people like this vex me to no end!)

    I hope mods pass on your details to the relevant law enforcement agents. Although if I were the victim, I personally would be inclined to pay this chap a visit and dish out my own brand of justice. :mrgreen:

    Looks like this Adam Craig Rees is our guy!!!

    Mods, over to you with banning this weasel.

    PS I believe he uses AOL as his IP address, but numerous AOL users share the same IP so he can always set up a new account! Clever little cun7!!

    If he is under a community order and has scammed you whilst doing it then he will be in big trouble.

    I'd try and call the local police and see if you can get any joy that way?
  • daisbuysdaisbuys Posts: 167
    I'm in touch with two of the lads he has scammed recently, who are in turn are in touch with Dorset police!

    Keep you all updated on this rat!

    That sentence is a complete joke!

    This member seems to be logging in from a mobile, so no point blocking his IP address, but I can confirm that he is banned.

    The problem is that whilst people can log on via their mobiles they will get a different IP address each time, so it is impossible to block it as otherwise genuine members will be blocked if they use the same IP address later on.

    No point blocking his email, as he will only set another up, all we can ask is that people be vigilant, don't pay by Bank Transfer without knowing the seller and don't pay via PayPal gift.

    Read my advice thread below: -

    Update....He has just refunded me in full my £50!

    Maybe the police knocked on his door or he just didn't fancy a visit of associates of mine....will never know?

    But thanks to the forum members on here sending me in the right direction to his previous scams and of his whereabouts....

    Morale of the story, don't pay by bank transfer, cheques, postal order and pay by pay pal gift no matter how long the seller has been a member on the forum.
