Re: Person to person transfers [First post is "MUST READ" for Posting Rules; or receive points]

I got scammed by a user with the name DavaiNikolai on this site. I see he is now banned. He contacted me after I made a post here about needing Party and having stars.

He PMed me and he sent first $2302 from (Chrops1) on Party and then I sent $2140.86 on Stars to (Vex Leidhus) on December 24th 2017. All communication was via PMs here.

All transfers went through but I got an email quickly from Party asking if it was a trade for money on another site and I told them that it was. I was then told that this was against their rules and to not do it again. Fast forward to 3 weeks ago and I got another email from Party security asking the same questions about whether I know the user and then being told that they are putting a hold on the $2302 sent to me while they investigate. Finally they updated me a few days ago and told me that they have returned this money to the player and won't give me any further information on it since the case is closed.

I don't know what to do to get the funds back or who to talk to. Apologies if this shouldn't be posted here and I realise that there should have been further posts in this thread confirming that a trade was happening and with which usernames. It seems another user has posted for trades using this Party account in this thread in the last year, LetsgiveitaSPEW.

Please see https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/s...postcount=7537 and the following few posts. In post https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/s...stcount=161221 he said his PartyPoker SN was DonMolly.

LetsgiveitaSPEW was banned last October.

I believe other players have reported him to PokerStars, so you should inform them, too. bansky11 got his money back - maybe if PS banned him before Vex Leidhus lost your money, they'll be holding it and might return it to you?

Good luck.

Edit: You should also tell PS Security that he may or may not also be chrops341, from https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/s...stcount=160843.

Thank you for the advice. Pokerstars said they couldn't do anything because reversing a transfer would set a bad precedent and they didn't mention anything about whether he is banned or not.

After escalating through Party security I managed to get my funds returned there. The email support were terrible and wouldn't give me any information or idea that they were listening to me. I eventually got a phone call and the person there was very reasonable and said they would make me whole, even though he hinted that they had been scammed by the user, so a bad deposit or something. Email support said the case was closed and I couldn't get any refund but it is always best to escalate.

As discussed by PM, you received infractions for your recent posts stating that your BCP SN is "play money pro" because you had previously stated that your BCP SN is "playmoneypro".

You have now told me that your BCP SN is in fact "play money pro", with the spaces, so I will reverse the recent infractions and impose them on your previous posts, instead.

Thank you for clearing this up.

These are things you should find out BEFORE trading with some one.

Sucks you got scammed but you gotta help yourself first in order to get help here after.

Maybe contact stars might work.

Re: Person to person transfers [First post is "MUST READ" for Posting Rules; or receive points]

I feel like I have been patient in this matter. I have done trades with "justblaze47" a few times with no issues. This last trade was for the least amount ($100) of any of our transactions. Yesterday I PM’ed him that I would post if I did not get a response about the transaction. We have each other’s phone number but he said his phone was dead or messed up and later saying it was stolen.

4/11 I sent $100 to justblaze47 and was told I would receive venmo the following day.
4/13 I text asking for payment
4/14 I text asking for payment
4/15 I received text saying his venmo was busted bc his phone died. He said he messaged me on 2+2 and would send venmo shortly…He did not do either of these things. (I had responded to his text that I just wanted communication on the matter).
4/19 I sent a text and PM saying I never received the payment that he had said he would send 4 days ago.
4/20 He asked if he could send it back on ACR bc of phone problems and Venmo problems.
4/21 I responded in the morning that it would be fine if he sent it back on ACR, I also said that I do not mind delays as long as there is communication of what is going on.
4/22 He PM me saying he would send it back so we can do future trades, he said his phone was stolen, that’s what caused the delay.
An hour later he text me saying he would send the $100 on venmo plus more so he could grind. (I did not receive any payment)
4/26 I PM’ed that I would post if I did not receive payment or a response by today.
(No response but it shows that he logged onto 2p2 today)


Long story short I sent $100 to “justblaze47” from my ACR “Yo_11
I never received payment or good communication about the issue.

In the process of getting scammed by POCKET ACES OOO. I sent $100 first to his ACR SITONURFACEZ for $100 Zelle. He has gone off the grid.

Scott, Pocket Rockets OOO, sent me $105 via Zelle after 3 full days. Since this kind of behavior has become common for him recently, I’d avoid trading with him, maybe only accepting him sending first using non-reversible methods. Very stressful.

Re: P2P transfers: CHAT thread : No trading ITT

This could be a BBV post. It’s not an unheard of story, but it is very new for me. SimpleFast505, Sam Le from the Portland, OR - scratch that he tells me he lives in Phoenix - area, stole $5,900 in BTC from me today. He is someone who I’ve traded with a dozen times including for similar amounts though this was our biggest transaction.

He gambled away the BTC and claims he has absolutely nothing of value to realistically pay me back any time soon. Though his texts allude to him wanting to make an effort, we all know someone who is completely busto with no income isn’t going to magically find $6k overnight.

This post probably accomplishes nothing, but some of you may enjoy hearing of my sorrow. Having this money stolen from me will keep me from going to Vegas this summer. I’m dating someone who works in the poker industry, so I will (more important than money) likely lose her because I won’t be able to be with her until she returns after the Series.

All of this was certainly a possibility, but I thought the likelihood close to 0 given my professional relationship and experiences with Sam. I am so hurt.

Re: P2P transfers: CHAT thread : No trading ITT

How are UK based players getting their money off WPN? BTC seems iffy cuz the time taken you can lose alot. Obv Stars trades you have to play through, Party you have to play through 15% of the transfer, what about 888 do you have to play through transfers there too? Any other options? It appears skrill/neteller etc is an option to euro players on WPN...

We're entering an odd time in online poker when this is your last option rather than your first.

WPN locks the BTC price when they process your cashout, not at the time you submit it.

Re: P2P transfers: CHAT thread : No trading ITT

Haven't traded or posted in a while, was curious how I might go about doing a trade to acquire BTC(bitcoin), in exchange for a gift card or something along those lines. Having issues with my local credit union's debit card being able to buy BTC directly from exchanges like I normally do. I realize it wouldn't be a direct poker site account trade but it is to obtain BTC to put on a pokersite/Bovada.

Subject to the rules of thread in the OP of https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/5...s-only-504897/, you may be able to post there. As you infer, the IP thread is only for trades that are directly to or from poker sites.

Hi guys,
Where would a good place be, to sell cash in Vegas, for any other means of payment (like online wallets or wire transfers etc).
I won't be "recognized" in the hsnl xfer thread, since I played hsn not in the states and mostly. It with players from that thread.

I appreciate any advice. Thanks

PM BigBadBabar, tell him your playing history, and ask him if you can post in that thread. If you're trying to arrange to meet someone reputable in a casino to exchange your cash for another means of payment, I don't see why he shouldn't allow it. (Obviously, from your pov, take great care and do your full homework on the person before meeting him; in public.)
