Good to know but stupid question. What stops this person from opening a new account and coming back?

It is difficult. We can and do ban by IP address, but a motivated individual can find ways around these things.

Re: I got scammed by user Mindtricks who also has username Nostalgic

I'd like to go to the police. I have the photo of "Tony" and apparently his suspected name is Kevin Cheung. Do we have other details? What city is he in? The most incriminating piece of evidence is the email address associated to his bank account. The police should be able to track that to a legit account and go from there, but any and all details help.

I'm sure, by now, he's figured out how. Appreciate the effort nonetheless!

Sorry to the OP. I never doubted your misfortune, but my deal with the user was all above board, so it's just befuddling that I didn't get ripped off, or that someone could be so two-faced. Regardless, I hope you find some way of reimbursement.

Can the mods provide me with his IP address to give to the police? I know it is asking a lot.
