Starsregproblems / cantbeat/ wxink / xblink / Michael Gregory scammed me for 20k
- SRP / cantbeat(ps) /xwink /xblink / michael gregory owes me money and he has fail in deadline MANY times pulling lies constantly.
-money: Shared action where he used to play live (3k) , loan for 6k, I back him 50/50 to play on Mraggr0 888 with 5k, he ran it up to 17k(aprox) cashed out (5k+6k=11k) and I never got money.
Ill try narrate this as good as possible, but english is not my main language. Also im doing this to prevent other people to borrowing him money or trust him economically.
Me and StarsRegProblems became friends late 2013 , basically trolling on twitter. We started talking on whatsapp and skype and became what i consider good friends. Despite I live in Chile and he in Canada we used to be closed and talk to each other very often.
Early this year Michael Gregory (starsregproblems) played supposedly some 25/50 games back where he used to live and we won some money . I just said to him 5% or whatever from time to time, and he booked some scores so I made from that I think closely to $2.400 , he asked me for $600 aprox for whatever reason and i sent it on paypal. I dont remember exact amount but i know its $3.000 from early this year, if he says its not i could post chat logs, whatsapp pic, etc.
I was not worried about him delaying the payment everytime i asked for it because he kind of helped me with my plo game. I felt i owed him money for his help and in one talk he said something like: "send me $400 and forget about this". I did it and sent on paypal , all the money owed is after this.
I kept asking from time to time (once a month probably) to transfer me money ($3.000) and he ketp saying things like: "tomorrow" " im gonna deposit on stars" " ill have to do some wire transfers" , but never happen.
Later on , probably May (I can check transfers dates exactly but doesnt affect the story), he said he needed to move to the other canadian coast, and was really low on cash and it was on a hurry, he asked me for 6k.
He sounded like in a hurry and he was my friend so i sent on paypal.
I asked for money later and the typical answer was: "sure, give me couple of says".
Later on , In June, we were talking on skype and he told me he didnt feel like grinding, but maybe if i was his backer he would get motivated to play. He asked me for 4-6k to play on 888, on MrAggr0 account, I sent him 5k. He had some some swing but probably 3 weeks later he told me he was going to cash out something like 16k+ (im not sure but i think it was something like 16.800 , i could be wrong about the exact amount tho). I told him it was better than he find someone to get an exchange , 888 usd for any of MY poker accounts so i could get paid the whole money he owed me. He kept saying he was blocked from 2p2, or twitter blocked, bla bla bla...
I kept asking for my money, and he said that i shouldnt be worried that he would get it asap. After couple of weeks with this delay he told me he finally cashed out money to Canada! , and he had gotten the cash in his hands.
I was mad and asked him for my share+debt and he said i should relax, that he would wire me or something like that.
Later he told me he gave that money to his parents because they r accountants and they ususally invest his money.
So i snapped like 1 month ago asking for my money, full amount right away 3k(shares) + 6k(borrow/loan) + 5k(backing plan) + 6k(50% profit) = 20k , and he told me many excuses, and the typical: "couple of days" .
i then just went to low content on plo thread to share my anger, and he suddenly tried to get in touch with me and do things right. He didnt/doesnt want to be outed.
he told me recently he is cash broke, that he has plenty of money invested everywhere but couldnt get a dimme to pay me. The 35k left he had ,he lost it playing it somewhere like 2-3 weeks ago.
After that he told me he got someone to back him to play on PS , i saw him playing a couple of days there, lost and then left.
In all the talks we had he always slipped that he had ton of money, despite getting destroyed in cantbeat account he said he had invested 300k with uncles, he had invested with parents, he plays big live games 10/20+ , etc etc etc... That was one of the reasons i always felt secure i couldt trust him with $.
Last email we had he said this:
"I propose something that allows me to show my commitment to paying you back in a prompt manner, with routine payments.
Moving my money around, could still take a little time, but again, you don't want details, so here is what I propose.
Im stating that I will begin payments to you starting on thursday the 23rd. I will send a payment via paypal (cheques take too long with mail and to clear, so I feel that option is best) for the amount of 1500$. I know that isnt alot of money, but its what I can do via circumstance until I get my money. If I get my money sooner, I will send before then, and will notify you via email or whatsapp. Not only am I moving money around from investments, but I have inquired to the bank about increasing my credit. Im stating again, that if that should happen, that I will pay you before the next 2 weeks and will notify you of that circumstance.
Following that, I can do the same amount, exactly 2 weeks later, and so on. I wish for this not to drag on that long, and when I get a bigger payment to pay you, i will do so as I cant keep living with this hanging on my mind constantly." (extract , other parts will be share if necesary)
Yesterday 23rd i tried talking to him, btu he was working all day!. when he got home he felt asleep and didnt send me the mone. Today I woke up check my accou t and havent got any transfer. Checked whatsapp and he said he felt asleep, nothing else.
I told him about this thread, sent him the cliffs just to be sure about whole story, he again asked me for some days to pay me, ast chance and the typical talk.
Im done, I dont think he will ever pay me , I dont think he neved had the intention to pay me.
- I also think that he is a big liar, i cant trust him in many things he says because it just doesnt make any sense. Obviously that is now, thats why he cheated me with the money. Just dont trust him
- He said in convos he is xwink/xblink, he made money from there and jump into ftp games. He told me details how he battled people back in the days and how was action. I dont know if i should believe this, but it makes ton of sense.
- he always said that he had some High stakes regs that were friends to him, i feel this is part of the lies that he pulls so people trust him econopmically. he told me he was friend with ansky, greg merson, joe, high mtt(superhighrollers stuff), etc.. (he told me today that he isnt friend with ansky, just casual talk.)
Feel free to ask me anything.
and yes, i know im an idiot , just trying to warn other idiots to not fall in this trap.
