You should have searched on his Pokerstars' name, his Twoplustwo name, and his AIM name.
He should get some kind of avatar saying he is a scammer, if this forum is able to put Bonus Hore on Brett avatar I believe they can put scammer.
Bonus Whore is a "good thing" and Brett requested it.
So people can see that he is a scammer because not everyone does a search on players name.
Everyone who is trying not to be scammed by total strangers on the internet does search on everything they can think of, read the OP, follow the advice, and ask for others' opinions.
I won't post any of your many PMs to me, but here's what I replied to one of them with. Maybe some others might be interested?
"If it's so easy to create a new Pokerstars account every tme he scams someone, and deals with creating a new bank account every time, then we may as well give up the alleged scammers list.
He could go on a scamming spree because he can open a new account here at Twoplustwo every day if he wants to. It's totally anonymous so there is no check who opens accounts here nor how many. Dozens of people here have dozens of gimmick accounts here for different forums and purposes and we rarely know or guess whose they are.
That is one of the reasons it would be pointless to label an account "Scammer". He would simply never use that one again.
The best way not to be scammed by a total stranger on the internet is not to do p2p transfers. If someone thinks they "have to", then any prudent person would do as many checks and searches as they could before transferring, and they would certainly follow some or all of the sensible suggestions in the OP.
TBH, no one feels any sympathy for someone who doesn't take any precautions whatsoever, and then whines continuously when the obvious happens.
The OP and the alleged scammers list are there to try to help people. People can't be forced to read them or do their own searches, but if they don't, they need to accept it was 100% their own fault they were scammed, (allegedly).
Finally, Twoplustwo isn't in the position to, nor has the desire to to be judge and jury in cases of alleged scams, where the person accusing the other could be a malicious liar in the first place.
Finally, and ironically, you are rapidly heading towards the position where it will be you that is banned for being a nuisance in the forums. I am giving you leeway at this time because you were (allegedly) scammed, but I am now asking that you drop the matter now that you have informed everyone of what happened to you, and it is on all the relevant search engines to help others in the future.
