    Nothing was criminal about what I wrote. And it was a one time contact. I don't see any problem. I have a clear opinion about that. Maybe an extreme opinion but I try to do everything (within a legal frame) to solve it without authorities first if the guy is young and naive but keeps threatening me. If there was any harassment, then from him.

    I write it again, it was a polite one-time message asking them to help to solve this in a human way. Everything else is bs and has the intention to change the role of victim and offender. He was the victim from the beginning.

    @xynames

    I really tried everything to solve this. But he didn't want to listen, threatened and lied. It was impossible. From NamePros he demanded that I shall buy the domain a second time, imagine!

    I mean what he did to this logo designer should tell you what type of person we are dealing with.

    And I didn't threaten the family. It was the opposite. I was polite and the father (if he's real) threatens me. I am not so stupid that I send threats to other people.

    In the end, I don't care much, sooner or later, he will fxck his own life completely, if he continues to scam people. And my feeling tells me that there could be more "unclear things" already, for other cases. We will see. I don't want to know what happened to all the coins in his casinos.

    Following an investigation, the NamePros team has marked this case as "Intentional Fraud"
    now.

    Furthermore, the "father's" account has been closed. No comment.

    IMPORTANT: He has obviously created new accounts again and tries to defraud other people with other domains if I read the full text correctly.

    Please be careful!

    Ive done deals with tens of thousands of dollars worth of ETH and BTC on Namepros. Ive never had any problems, but I requested or more like asked, if the domain could be pushed or transfered to my account first. Thats a normal standard since crypto transactions can not get reversed. I now see that the whole story is getting way too much disturbing, so this is the only contribution I want to make....

    they wont mention his country but when another thread pops up, they will be quick to mention Nigeria that has no relationship with the thread.

    Whois shows fake details. Shouldn't this be grounds for name suspension by registrar?

    In this case the guy chose Libya. I suspect just because it ends in ly. So if it was gambling.com, he'd claim Nigeria as his home. Clearly he did not have honorable intentions from the beginning. I am amazed flippa is turning a blind eye just for couple of hundred dollars.

    Am I missing something? I was under the impression that using escrow.com solved the problem of ever having to worry about getting scammed on a domain or any other product. Is this not the case? And why use Paypal instead of escrow if dealing with a stranger? Paypal speed is great when dealing with a trusted party but doesn't having chargeback potential make it not ideal? Also, I thought I read in Paypal's TOS that they don't provide seller protection for digital goods but only products that can be proven with tracking numbers and proof of delivery?

    It seems like this matter is not going to be resolved, and the domain will just find a new home if the seller is serious about the Flippa deal. I personally don't think that was his father, because if it was him he should apologize for his son behaviour first before asking to stop harassing his family.

    I'm also glad that Nigeria or Morocco weren't mentioned in this thread :xf.laugh:

    Didn’t see anyone explain, so not sure if you care or got the correct answer but a “denuncia” in spanish I believe is why he used that word, which is a formal action filed civil or criminal which translated literally in english is “denounce”, Its a language issue. Another example FYI, a “Demanda” is not a “Demand”, but in Spanish basically the word used for for a “lawsuit”.

    Well, his crimes will be resolved. Probably not now and in this particular case but one day because such people don't stop and feel invincible. Just read what the logo designer said and with what disgusting method he tried to get back the payment. But if everybody reports every single theft, then they will stop him earlier. That's why I will report it.

    Flippa: Everybody must decide for himself if this is a trustworthy company.

    If it was the father, then I understand why the son is like this. But I don't think it was the father. Because I have heard that he created several new accounts again and obviously still tries to scam people with other domains. So careful please, people!

    I'm not Spanish. But in Spanish and in many other languages, there's only one single word for this action, at least in everyday language.

    You have completely confused me now. And what is the single word I am missed?I saw reference to Spain somewhere and just was attempted to help. Using the word “Denounce” makes zero sense in legal terms as XY noted.

    Here's Flippa's statement. So you prove that the domain has been sold and paid by providing the double signed contract and proofs of payment, but they state that the seller hasn't breached any Flippa terms. Yeah, sure. For money, they collaborate with thieves and allow that the domain is sold again. There have not been any concerns lmao.

    A lot of crimes these days are committed by people from outside Nigeria but claim to be from Nigeria. Since the middle of last year, I can say about 1000 of these guys have been rounded up at various places across the country in Nigeria. Yesterday, I read about 11 of them were arrest.

    The big dogs among them are outside Nigeria... oh well, it is a shame we will be in this mess for a very long time.

  20. Investigation:

    All of the evidence reviewed shows that @Oliver Maggs intentionally tried to sell Gambly.com to multiple members without an intent (Or capability) of sending them all the domain name that they paid for.

    As an example of this, @Oliver Maggs accepted PayPal funds from one member and said he would transfer the domain soon, but a few minutes later, Oliver Maggs was instructing a second member to send him money for the same domain name, even though Oliver had just closed an agreed-upon deal on that domain with the other member.

    @Oliver Maggs's account is heavily restricted and notated to prevent this from happening again. We can provide all information we have available to anyone affected and interested in pursuing legal action.

    Important reminder:

    Do not use other apps or services to communicate about deals you're doing on NamePros. Oliver repeatedly tried to move the conversation off of NamePros to WhatsApp and Skype, and if you do that, then it could significantly increase your risk of being defrauded and we won't be able to offer the same level of assistance. Furthermore, that should be a red flag to you if someone wants to take the conversation elsewhere.

    All communication must take place on NamePros for us to be able to assist.


    Hope that helps,

    This weekend, another victim (no domainer!) of Oliver Maggs contacted me. He found this thread by googling for the scammer who stole $450 from him one year ago.

    It appears that Oliver Maggs is a famous scammer, and that he has stolen funds from people over many months. From domainers, web designers, eGamers, etc.

    The only way to stop him is to go to https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

    When there are several reports by different people, then the chance is higher that something happens. So even if you just lost 200 or 300, please take these ten minutes and report it online. It's very easy.

    Would reporting him to the law society in his area do some good(?) Maybe also making false threats(?)

    Well, this thread appears when somebody googles his name. He had the choice between returning stolen funds and getting his reputation destroyed.
