Let's Catch A Thief!! (Update: CAUGHT!) - Page 25

post #361 of 430

good read glad to hear of the success

 

 

I'm on a lot of automotive sites and I've seen countless idiots try and do the same (steal some high profile car that's customized to boot).  Usually the community is on it like white on rice!!! :P

Pityfull most of the times those big bosses ( i even think that the boss they are now looking for is not even the big boss but a local coordinator) stay out of reach.....and far far away..thats the problem with modern communication... mad.gif

It's a shell game, you never get to see the real wizard, but taking down punks like those guys is always a good thing.

Bottom line is Todd got his stuff back, we can only hope it does not happen to him again....

Hopefully he exercises stricter standards and precautions when selling such pricey gear, e.g, a phone call with a number that matches either his home/work address or credit card for confirmation in addition to having all personal info checked out.

I don't get it, the guy who filed the complain used his home IP address? I've got a hard time believing that he wouldn't use a foreign VPN/proxy or a hacked wifi account confused.gif

 

Anyway, great read and glad that thieves got caught =)

Most criminals (fortunately) are dumb, and that's why they get caught. Consider the worthless punks behind the Boston Marathon attacks. We're really fortunate that very rarely are terrorists actually intelligent (ie Unabomber) and those who are generally aren't preoccupied with mass terror but rather some super idealistic cause, or there would really be mayhem. Then again, I suppose that's because intelligent people realize theres greater net utility to be had being a law abiding citizen and using their intelligence than committing crimes. 

 

This is why I don't think there's a bigger boss or anything. I think this idiot is really the ring leader and also explains why all of the goods were found in his apartment. He had a string of successes and got cocky. And now he gets to spend the next few years in jail.

nobody said that.  his emails were sent thru gmail which doesnt pass on IP information.  the order was placed from what looked like a residential broadband account near Sacramento.  Todd's EAR 509 order was placed from an IP address that resolved to about 80 miles east of Sacramento
