Found 11th Aug 2016
Hi all,

I am aware that I am not the only person to have recently been defrauded by Debrene who took advantage of peoples good will and nature on the forums to commit fraud. After much deliberation I have spoken to Action Fraud who have confirmed the more of us who report it the better chance Karma will bite him. If you raise a report please quote my reference of NFRC160801513777 so that they can link the cases.

Regards

Who is Debrene?

Original Poster

I was indeed, I fell for something hook line and sinker and found out others have too, not expecting to get my money back. More of a live and learn experience, just hoping the police can do something. Have let the admins know that I was planning on raising the thread as they have had reports from others regarding the user.

Thank you



You should ask the Mods to clarify no other user shared the same IP Address

I wouldn't bother with Action Fraud, find other members who have been ripped off, club together to hire a romanian hacker to get your money back and inflict whatever retribution you think deserve.

Many could well have done.

Maybe, maybe not. I do think the OP should publish all the info they have. Telephone number, email, name etc etc

Essentially I was looking for a 2DS, the user contacted me directly offering me one at a reasonable price. I followed the same process I had previously on the site and sent the money, the user is now unreachable and I have no item. I've said before I was a mug for handing the money over and I'm not expecting anything to happen with the police but there's no harm trying.

So did you follow the site rules and agree the deal in a thread and exchange and verify contact details? I guess you got lucky first time but were going to get ripped off in the end if you just accepted a deal via pm and sent money to a new user without verifying their contact info. Put it down as a lesson learnt and read the fs / ft rules.

Of course, but the buyer wouldn't have deleted their comment accepting the deal.
