Don Ohonjo is a scammer/thief

so don ohonjo (aka legendoflink on 2+2), a former friend of mine has owed me over $13,000 for almost two years now and has no intentions of paying me back. (more about that story in this thread i created about the situation.) it was also discovered that he was posting under the Pegusus account which is a known scammer who owes money to other 2+2 members by refusing to pay debts to people in the HSNL sports discussion thread.

now there is a website outlining the situation so hopefully it will prevent anyone else from being scammed or stolen from by don

Re: Don Ohonjo is a scammer/thief

I thought I read two threads like this before. One guy calls another a cheater yet they share accounts or one guy doesnt pay up and the other starts a website about it. Very nice to include the guys fathers name and former address as well.

Re: Don Ohonjo is a scammer/thief

why don't you hire a private detective for 500.00 -1K to find out his address in Vegas. Show up and beat the **** out of him or call the law. I'm sure hes broke and isn't paying you anyways.

Re: Don Ohonjo is a scammer/thief

This thread is epic just for the white guy throwing up a west coast.

OP, does he have the $13k and is not paying you, or he is just a busto degen?

Re: Don Ohonjo is a scammer/thief

Isn't this the point in the thread where the guy is suppose to post about his life issues and that he had all intentions of paying OP back, but now he won't do to this public trashing, etc etc etc.

Re: Don Ohonjo is a scammer/thief

it's just a question of which account he's gonna post on. legendoflink and go old school? pegusus and bring back the scammer vibe? maybe his new account that i wont mention (unless he tries to start booking sports bets and making trades anywhere on 2p2)

Sounds like you have taken the wrong approach here tbh. It is unlikely someone who is your friend hangs out with you for a long time for the sole purpose of stealing $13k. It sounds like he's busto from what you describe.

If he is a sick gambler you might be out of luck, but maybe an offer to get him away from such gambling might be +EV.

$13k is a lot, but not end of world. Suggest you write off this as a bad debt and continue on with life...lots of people in same situation for much more these days.

I suggest you read the Justin Smith threads on NWP to see how a thread like this turns out. It will make you laugh at least.

LOL. you're like an abused wife that still protects the guy that beats the **** out of her. Why the hell do you care to "not mention" his new account. This may sound harsh, but this personality trait may be something that left you susceptible to lending and not getting paid back.
