Got ripped off

Well guys, I dropped my gaurd for a bit, and got ripped off. I normally would have picked up on it and, Don't know why I did this time. But the facts of the matter are, that I got burned! What was the price for getting screwed? $237.50 Yep. I've turned it in to Western Union and hopefully I'll get my money back. But I will NEVER AGAIN deal with anyone that is not a known member here in good standing. I have done several transactions with various people here and, I guess that's why I didn't think anything about it. What was the ash-hole's name that burned me? James Quazada. Of course, a person could have any name as the contact. Main thing is, like I said, NEVER do business with ANYONE that's not a member here in good standing. I never will again. So, to all you scammers out there, I hope your legs grow together!!

Re: Got ripped off

That happened to me once. It upset me to no end. His mistake was he actually had a business in Indianapolis. After the DA and the courts got through with him it was a pleasure to see justice done.

As part of what Western Union said I had to do to have any chance of getting my money refunded by them, was to make a report with local police. I did that and cops told me it was a civil matter. Well, to do that I'd have to first, find the WPOS and then, go thru all the process. If I were to find this person, well, let's just say he'd be very sorry he did what he did. No, that's not a threat, that's a forking PROMISE!!!

Re: Got ripped off

BS it's a civil matter! That wasn't your friend, someone you knew. It is theft and there are laws against it that the police are hired to enforce, not sit at a desk and turn matters away. In fact, it's interstate theft which is worse. Maybe we wouldn't want to kick people's asses if it meant a bunch of paperwork (fortunately not!)

I completely agree with you! This is the kind of thing that leads to people being seriously hurt or killed!! I myself wouldn't kill someone over this, but there are people that would. I would however, kick someones butt over it though.

Re: Got ripped off

'65, try this link. You can do an online report. I won't get in the middle of whether the officer was right or wrong in not doing a report. However, since it was an internet scam, you can do this report. https://police.fortworthtexas.gov/On...-police-report

Honestly though, I won't be surprised if the crime doesn't get investigated. We get lots of these, where I work, and unfortunately, they take a lot of time to investigate. Also, like in this case, they cross state lines, which muddies the waters even more.

The cops aren't going to investigate this at all. The cop that came for the report acted like a di(k about it. I explained that I was only doing what Western Union said I needed to do, but he was still an azz. I kinda agree about that, but I was just trying to get my money back.

Re: Got ripped off

I understand and hear what you are saying. If you do an online report, it most likely will not get investigated, but it may help you get your money back from Western Union.
