Let's Catch A Thief!! (Update: CAUGHT!) - Page 26

post #376 of 430

I think it's more like the mules gave him away, but I still don't understand why he would whine to the FBI? Prolly just bluffing in order to get a refund? He knew his cover was blown out and the money would have been refunded on the stolen CC, so why would he care. I guess he should have left the country or moved to another state and used another fake identity as soon as he opened the dummy parcel as it should have really rung the bell that his days were counted.

 

Luckily, there is no "perfect" way to run this kind of scam and I believe he got caught up by the "shark feeders" syndrome in which ppl always seem to believe that they are unstoppable......until their arm goes away evil_smiley.gif

Funny the guy that picked up stuff pleaded guilty to 2 counts and got 180 days in jail and is out now.  Where the justice?

He got sentenced to 180 days (6 months) but only was in jail for like a couple of weeks, if that, likely due to over-crowding.

 

It's rare that those sentenced actually end up serving their full sentence as there are always more criminals coming in who did worse crimes I guess.

I'm not saying he didn't deserve to serve his full sentence, but truthfully, he's just kind of a petty idiot, not the brains behind this. And with limited jail space, he's pretty much small fry.

A real stand up guy, Justin. If I wasn't so reliant on my Amazon store card, I'd give all my business to you.

Someone tried to steal a pair of Audeze LCD-2 today. When your billing phone number is an elementary school FAX line hundreds of miles away, that's a little suspicious. Then the guy calls me from a UK phone number and says he is "confused" by my questions...

this one looks to be a bit more sophisticated.  what they're actually doing is hiring Americans who think they are being employed as package forwarders, not knowing they are receiving and sending stolen merchandise.  at the same time they steal the identities of the people they've hired to make more money.
