Z has allegedly been going around offering to provide people with funds on ACR Poker and then after people send him money, he fails to deliver the ACR P2P transfer.

Victim blaming isn't the solution to eradicating the poker world of scammers and fraudsters.

But it's a good lesson for others.
You can out a scammer while pointing out a massive mistake people made.
That doesn't mean they deserved to be scammed but it does make it a lot more likely it would happen.

Agree with this. We're in an interesting era of what I call "victim shaming shaming." Not that long ago, society was too quick to spew "they were asking for it" and "it's their fault for letting it happen" type of rhetoric. Pretty toxic, for sure. But now the pendulum has swung so far the other way that no one is allowed to comment on how people should be vigilant about protecting themselves, lest they be accused of victim blaming.

I look forward to an era when we can say stuff like "criminals are bad, and also here's what people can do to make sure criminals are unsuccessful." (I suppose that's every NordVPN ad ever done.)

That said, whomever who gets scammed isn't necessarily stupid. OP, any further info on how this guy pulls this off? After all, it's altogether likely that assuming this is true Booska isn't exactly a complete stranger to the victim by the time he convinces them to send him money.

Doug Polk has recalled on several occasions a time when someone took control of his computer and superused him. If memory serves, the access to get to that laptop came from a fairly long con in which the scammer gained Doug's trust.

Yes it is. People should learn to never send money to randoms.

Of course calling him out is also a good thing.

Actually pointing out to fools not to be fools is the best way to get rid of scammers and fraud. Without the suckers the scammers have no incentive to remain and no effect on anyone if they do.

OP, I'd suggest letting these people know they are welcome to post about their issues on our forum themselves. This isn't meant as a venue for people to post third party accounts of alleged scams. Thanks.
