How does someone log that many hands when its only their hobby? That seems very fishy. Even if someone is a pro that is still a ton of hands.

yeah, some are able to play that much but its rare.

I played 50K hands one month, averaging 30h week... not 12 tabling obviously but still 125K hands is ton of hands

I'm curious that if it was a scam and he was just going to keep the $500, why bother sending 28 PT graphs? Seems like a lot of uneccessary effort since he already had the money. He could have just disappeared once it was transferred. And if he was going to send graphs, wouldn't it make more sense to lose it all and say he was bust? Did you discuss what would happen if he went bust?

Unless he just wanted to torment you more by showing what he was doing with your money

Two things spring to mind upon reading this thread for the first time:

1. Prodigy, while I feel great sympathy for what happened to you you need a good smack in the head - what the hell were you thinking?

2. I was waiting for Seb to show up and fire a (probably well deserved) rocket up your ass for being dumb and then he shows great restraint and, dare I say it, even a little compassion! Must be Christmas

By the way, best way to get this moving is to pursue it on 2+2 in BBV - they seem to have a reasonable record of hunting down scammers over there. Although often a bit of public shaming in a measured and non-emotional way often draws the guy out of the woodwork claiming his email was down and offering to pay up to save his reputation.

Easy you pay off two plus two admins to give you his IP address. You get some nerds to trace who the fuck he is. When you figure that out you hire a goon to go knee cap him.

Then the goon returns if the dude hasn't paid 10% compound interest per day on top within a week of the knee capping.

Simple.

Perhaps next time before staking someone, you could follow advice from Moe from the Simpson's:

Moe: Sure, Homer, I can loan you all the money you need. However,
since you have no collateral, I'm going to have to break your
legs in advance.
Homer: Gosh, Moe, I use these all the time. Couldn't you just bash my
head in?
Moe: Hey, hey: are you a loan shark? Do you understand how finance
works? [grabs a sledgehammer] Now let's do this thing.

Maybe the guys dead in a ditch after celebrating a $2k windfall with hookers, cocaine and a bottle of jack.

Or you could have been scamoo-ed

Either way, i wouldn't waste another pennycent on this.
