I did.

It took me a couple days to realize he was playing on Lock with my money, it's not exactly what I expected. It then took Lock a couple days to look into it and freeze the account. At that point there was 49 cents in the account.

Good post thanks. I'm considering all my options at the moment.

I am in contact with Eric Hardt (hambone4k) via email. He is still claiming he was hacked, and that it may have been a friend of his but he can't accuse anyone till he has evidence (I'm paraphrasing his words). I asked him several questions that he has not answered yet that really don't add up with his story, in my opinion.

He continues to log on to 2+2 (you can see his last activity by clicking on his name) but refuses to comment in this thread. If my name was being smeared for something I had not done I would stand up for myself and explain exactly what happened. I find it interesting that he says nothing publicly.

I highly doubt his friend did it. Mainly because why would there still be activity on the account after the initial day. When he makes his thread he continues to play on the account. If he was truly honest he would have sent back what he had left once he claimed to be hacked.

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

imo you've waited wasted enough time waiting around already. Even if his "friend" did hack his account (terrible excuse btw) does that change the fact that he still owes you the money??? It's time to call some lawyers

Agree 100%..... I feel bad for OP but he needs to now Man up (no disrespect) and actually get the ball moving.... I would also contact the police and the investigator that was helping you.. BTW i would request interest from your money (which is 2% per month) just an fyi

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

So it appears he has no interest in paying or even care that his name is being smeared. What next bcg? This sucks. I was so surprised to see this thread was still lurking with him showing no remorse

This does not matter. He owes you the money regardless. Don't get bogged down by things that are irrelevant.

Can you go into more detail? I think he's reading this thread and I'd like more opinions on this specific point.

He thinks that if he was hacked and never talked to me (I don't think this is what happened anyway) then he isn't liable, please share opinions.

He has to send the wire regardless.

-His security is his problem. Recovering his funds is his problem.
-Him losing your funds after a deal is agreed upon is not your problem..

He needs to reach down and find his spine and ride it the f#$# out of the depths of scum he lives in.

If it quacks like a duck and sh*#s like a duck then it is a ....

That opens the flood gates for everyone. First off how much was left after he said he was hacked? There was a decent amount and he was still playing not the so called "hacker." Listen he is lying and there is a way to prove it.

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

He owes it all plus interest. End of story. He might or might not be reading this thread. He's probably opened another account to play poker on. I dont know exactly what Clamper had done as far as contacting the police, but I think thats your best bet. This guy is not just gonna say "my bad" and pay up. Getting a lawyer is pointless, because he's probably broke anyway, otherwise he likely wouldnt have stolen the 8k. All we can do is keep this thread bumped so hopefully he doesnt scam anybody else.

So let me get this straight, now that it's clear to him that no one is going to buy the anonymous hacker story. He comes up with "my friend hacked me" so it's plausible someone did it from his PC, thus justifying the IP address match. What was the period of time/days that the intial contact was made to the bulk of the money getting lost?

It seems incredibly odd that he never talked to you, since it took him about a week after he degen'd the money away before he even brought that up as a possibility.

Just based on how calmly he reacted to being "hacked" makes it blatantly obvious that Eric Hardt (Hambone4k) is a scamming scammer who scams poorly.

Seems obvious but I guess I can respond at ****** level to make it clear...

Y'all agreed on a trade.

You transferred.

You are now owed money by the owner of the account that you transferred to.

Period. End of story.

---

Anything that happened in HIS account is not your responsibility or problem.

He is responsible for his account's security, not you.

If he was hacked they stole from HIM, not you.

This is absurdly obvious.

---

If you believe that he was hacked then it would be reasonable for you to give him more time, put him on a payment plan, or otherwise make it easier for him to recover and repay. But you'd just be being a nice guy. He owes you the money as promised.

You fulfilled your part of the deal. He did not.

The friend hacked me line is just ******ed. First off there is a way that it could have went through his computer and him being hacked. However, this was not the case here. Just think about it logically. He was hacked but activity is still happening on the account in question. That makes no sense at all. OMG someone is playing on my account. Ok let me just ignore it. Why didn't he send you back what he had left once he came on here instead of letting whoever lose the rest of it?

He obviously does not know about network security. If he did he would not claim his account was hacked. Mainly because it is so easy to determine if you were hacked. The story just seems so unlikely because so many things would have had to happen for it to be true.

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

Some people seem to be missing the point here. If someone hacks your 2+2 account, makes a deal under your name, should you be liable for the transaction? I'm not sure what the answer is and it would certainly depend on the facts and circumstances of the inidividual case, but the answer is certainly not clear cut.

Hambone's position appears to be that ALL his accounts were hacked, including his 2+2 and AIM. The alleged hacker then proceeded to make a deal with the op, not Hambone.

That said, I think it is incredibly unlikely that this is what happened here--that all accounts, including 2+2, bank account, AIM, and poker accounts were hacked unbeknownst to Hambone, all to joyride with $8k on a poker site. But people here saying that "They had a deal, and he owes them the money" are not addressing the situation properly, since Hambone is basically asserting that he never made a deal.

Right, and not only asserting someone hacked all accounts, but a friend did it right from his computer. It's not like this all went down over a matter of an hour or two, it was over DAYS. His story has more holes then the Titanic.

Seems clear that Hambone is trying to muddy the waters and create plausible deniability in hopes this will all blow over. OP don't let that happen.

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

If he's going to claim a "friend did it" , then certainly he's willing to provide said friends irl information to both bcgt and any local authorities since it amounts to theft.

Of course that will never happen since a random buddy didnt have access to his account for all that play.

This.

Hambone4k where u at man? You shoulda been all over this thread by now defending yourself. I dont understand, whats the deal with all the hiding in the shadows?

The silence is making you look more and more guilty.

Please, I think we would all give you a little more credit if you would just post your current explanation for all of this. Most of us are guessing as to what it is, but if you are really telling the truth, why dont you just post an update on what you know so far. surely you know something more seeing as how the money was lost from your normal IP address.
