But I think the thread title could be more direct if someone tells me how to I will
In that case the title of this thread should certainly be changed. At first glance it looks like you are claiming that these two players scammed you. If I were JoeBanana5 or Scobidoo and happen to log on and see this thread title, I would be very (justifiably) upset.

Hey Hambone4k, are you still in Oak Lawn?

Edit: Nevermind, I found the answer.

I'm sure the McDonough County Sheriff’s office and the Department of Homeland Security Customs Enforcement wouldn't mind hearing about you being 'hacked'. I'll venture a guess that they'd be very interested, and probably finish my investigation for me.

Are you going to call them, or shall I?

The clock is ticking.

That's not your address, but you've been there. My mistake. Here's a better address.

9*** M****d Ave

I have a phone number. I could call you, but I won't. I'll leave that to the professionals.

Re: I got scammed JoeBanana5 and Scobidoo PLEASE READ

OP you should PM a mod or admin to get the title changed... to something better

Regardless of him getting hacked(I'd said it's close to 0%, but possible... I guess), he owes you the 8k. It's up to him to get the 8k back if he was hacked.(I recommend getting Clamper to help if he was hacked.)

I'm working on changing the title now

Uh, yeah. Let me get this straight, OP, he's saying that you shipped him poker funds and then someone hacked his account and lost the funds, so now he won't send you the wire transfer he promised? What, did someone hack his bank account, too? The most annoying thing about some criminals, is they are too stupid too really think through their side of the story. So their fates are usually not pretty. But that will be little consolattion to you of course unless the site/reps are able to help you recoupe your funds.

my 2 cents

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

He owes you 8k either way. Seems close to zero percent chance he was hacked, which makes him a scammer.

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

Damn this is an ugly spot for the OP.

Agree with apefish. Even if he was hacked....which is super unlikely....he still owes you the $8k and should be taking steps to arrange a payment plan instead of playing sngs all day.

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

I posted in the other thread that he claims to be hacked in. It is weird that he claims to have done a trade that more than 99.99% he did not do. Here is the link to the post I made. Obviously he is shady and shows that he was trying to boast his trades so he can go for the big scam.

He's playing poker with OP's money. That's theft.

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

Update is only that I have not been contacted by hambone4k whatsoever and that he has been playing super turbo sng's like djg1979 reported. Why he has not contacted since I sent the 8k leads me to believe that there is no way he was hacked and he intended on scamming me the entire time.

I am in contact with LockShane who has spoken to Lock Security and corroborated that logic. He said that the account was played on from the same IP address which does not make it seem like a hacked account (obviously).

I am going to release more info about this situation the longer I go without him paying me my 8k. Here is the AIM conversation we had minutes before I sent the money to his Lock account (Smitty1717). I believe this to be his real name and if you type Eric Hardt poker into google there are a fair amount of results.

[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
hey this bcgt178 from 2+2 you there?
Mar 6, 2012 5:08 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
yah I'm around for a few more minutes. Whats going on man
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
not much, i havent used aim in forever either this is kind of hilarious. just wanted to discuss the Lock deal
Mar 6, 2012 5:10 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
Yah, I didn't even have it on this computer. Using some kind of annoying web-based one
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
same here, its weird. easier than 2+2 msgs tho. k so i can do 4k-5k what were you looking for again?
Mar 6, 2012 5:11 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
I said 5k, but another deal fell through so I can buy up to 8
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
alright. what price did you want for 5k .9?
Mar 6, 2012 5:13 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
yah
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
just an fyi, I wouldn't be able to send until tomorrow morning. I gotta leave in about 10 minutes and wouldn't be able to today
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
i was thinking more like .925
tomorrow is fine
Mar 6, 2012 5:14 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
I can't pay that much
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
what price can you do for 7k
Mar 6, 2012 5:15 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
the absolute most I'd be willing to pay is .915
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
and would want 7k or no?
Mar 6, 2012 5:17 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
yah
up to 8
Mar 6, 2012 5:19 PM
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
k
i'd do 8k for .921
can transfer first if your references/2+2 history is strong
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
I have 50k worth of transfers in the thread which I'm sure you can verify
Mar 6, 2012 5:20 PM
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
k i'll check but i believe you
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
i'll check later let's figure this out now
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
ok
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
i know you have to go
Mar 6, 2012 5:21 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
I'm not paying more then .92 on absolutely any amount
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
If it gets done by tomorrow morning, I'll buy any amount up to 8k for .92
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
i can definitely get it done tonight
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
otherwise I'm pretty confident I can buy smaller amounts for less, it's just easier not having to pay a couple different methods
Mar 6, 2012 5:22 PM
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
yea i hear ya
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
yea i can do 8k for .92
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
so if you want to do 8k for 7360, I'll do that
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
yea i'm good with that
how will you be paying BoA is preferable or wire
Mar 6, 2012 5:23 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
I can do either
Mar 6, 2012 5:25 PM
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
k BoA then please
if you give me your Lock name i'll check out your refs and send tomorrow morning
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt

Smitty1717
Yah, feel free to check. Most of my transfers are highly rep'd people.. carpe dylan, a 1 i s h a, fees, ike, etc..
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
k sounds good i've dealt with them before
Mar 6, 2012 5:26 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
but I gotta get going. I'll be checking my ipad semi-regularly for the next few hours so feel free to pm me on 2p2
[Garrett Thompson (GT178)]
so: 8k Lock for 7360 BoA, I'll send tonight and you'll transfer BoA by when/
?
Mar 6, 2012 5:27 PM
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
by 1130 central time
[Eric Hardt (Stunner158)]
Eric Hardt
k, pm me if you need anything
Mar 6, 2012 5:28 PM

Agreed. Already looking into legal action as it seems he has no plans of getting in contact with me.

They said his account has "next to no funds in it" when I said they should lock his account and send me any and all money in it. Yet he is playing $250 sngs.
