Let's keep this thread bumped to the top until there is a resolution.

I have sent a message to mdtran by his yahoo address that he used to collect the funds through paypal. If he doesn't respond soon I'll use the FBI internet link to file a complaint.

No response. My suspicions are being confirmed. It looks like we'll have to take legal action, but I don't think we'll see the money again.

I have his phone number, address, and names, numbers, and addresses of 8 or 9 of his relatives, friends, and business contacts in the same area. I'm going to give him until midnight Oct 1, to not only respond, but make progress on refunds.

I've made some edits to the above post. I have attempted to contact mdtran by DM, and appreciate the frustration but we can't support implicit threats.

If you have his number, just call him?

There was nothing threatening about my post, I wanted him to know, that I know who and where he is. He stole thousands of dollars from us, the least we can do is go to where he lives and works to attempt to recover.

This whole thing seems a bit strange?

How many people actually gave him money, there is a lot less activity in this thread than I would've thought considering ~10 people gave him money?

It is also a bit strange that he gave out his actual number and address and then to disappear.

Plus he has seen the thread as he has signed on a few times, and had been a forum member for a while.

Anyway, best of luck to you. I'd probably start by calling the local police station if you have his address, and just report a theft and that you know the name and location of the person and getting them to interview him.

Where did he post or give out his actual phone number or address?

I may have misunderstood - but you said you had his personal details.
You misunderstood, albeit partially. I had friends with resources dig up his information, along with his family, and business connections.

No, they will not get involved, and that is probably the correct decision from the legal/liability standpoint. You might want to PM jlobo941 as he claims to have the address and phone number for mdtran, and I think a link to the FBI, which will help in starting a investigation.

They'll always do more to protect the identity and comfort of the scammer, than the victims....

Does anyone live in Oregon, near Portland? PM me.

I too, tried to email mdtran through his Yahoo address. No response. I am in the St. Louis area. Let me know if/how I can help.

I tried several addresses as well with no response. The Paypal method of sending the funds may make this a bit difficult to recover. It was a known risk but I'd also like to either recover some funds or get the unit.
