What legal action can be taken regards to online poker debt? I was under the impression that you could cheat/scam/bot as much as you want with almost 0 chance of legal recourse.

He probably doesnt, he lost a lot yesterday. I dont know when you contacted Lock but they should have locked his account when you reported him.

Do they really do this? I thought they just flat out dont get involved in things like this.

^It has to be an extreme case. I think a guy scamming and joyriding 8k reached that level

I wouldn't be so sure.

EDIT: And it's only after really looking through that thread that I saw that Clamper13 seemed to have played a big part in that scammer getting convicted. Eric Hardt has made a huge mistake.

Eric Hardt has refused to pay the money he owes

You're welcome to post anything, but I'll advise against it.

The guy left plenty of rope laying around. I fashioned it into a snug noose and emailed my findings to his local PD and Sheriff's Department.

No need to unleash any Internet vigilantism on him. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. If the police agree with me, this new trouble will bring him enough unwanted attention.

I'll update when I hear anything.

By coincidence I was simultaneously tracking him, but I played no part in his conviction.

That's the one.

Come on, this dude's brilliant scam was just to steal somebody's money then start a thread claiming to have been hacked.

This isn't an answer for clamper, but I'll say this as a former marketplace mod and one time scam sniffer here in the zoo- most people who do stuff like this don't have nearly the foresight to make themselves hard to find with even a quick look at whatever info is already out there.

Re: Scammed by Hambone4k?

I read through most of hambones 45 WHOLE posts here and I am failing to find what makes him have any solid refs. He uses Fees as a ref. He sent first for god sake. Did anybody vouch for him?

Anyways, sorry OP somebody has to say it in every thread like this. Hope it works out for you.

Not to mention a lot of information is available for free online. A bunch of information is there on everyone. Public info.

I have no interest in hacking. It's not the way I get things done.

I don't want to reveal too much lest future scammers improve their attempts at concealment. Suffice it to say that it involves a lot of research. Once I start digging I go wherever it leads.
