Default Scammed by WideWideWide

Whats up guys my name is Joseph and I was scammed from this guy, I was interested in buying a bfg 7800gtx OC when this guy had sent me a pm on the 10th of december, saying he happend to have one for sale, I asked him how much it would be and he said was willing to do $300, I said sure because he actually had pics of the item, or what looked like real pics, so with a few emails later he said he would only do Western Union, so I was like well ok, so I went ahead and paid $200 now on the 15th of December and would pay the rest the week after, today is now the 2nd of January and no emails nothing, no package, and I feel I am out of the $200, what can I do? I contacted Western Union already and they wont do anything, THe guy lives in Flordia, and I have his full name and address, what is my next move? Administratiors if you can pull up ip info on him that would be great, so I can go that route, I want my money back now!

I think he meant to get on msn and talk to each other of some sort of way to get this guy.

Thats what i was assuming, but, thats not how me made it out, lol but still msn.. screw that. Act like men, talk on the phone, get a plane ticket, go down there and knock the shit out him. not really of course, but really, get the police involved.

Both of his IP addresses appear to be bogus.
Don't ask me for them as posting them in a public forum is against the law. But there are ways around that too. Just look at the data at twisted forum. It's the same thing.

I said posting them is against the law. You can open the forum to a lawsuite.
