Publicizing  names as a safety awareness is worthless.  Instead we should educate  folks to use common sense. 

Very surprised to see you say that.
Do we say that rather than arresting a thief, we should tell people to get better security systems on their house?

Both approaches need to be taken. Education, and punishment for those responsible.
Them being busted and ppl seeing their friends messed over as a result is the strongest lesson there is.

Just spoke to the guy I know who out in cash. He hasn't gotten anything back. He's still convinced the whole thing is legit. Trying to explain to me that there is the guy from monsey who went to LA and then to Paris and verified the whole thing. And he can't be lying....
@Emkay is the monsey guy the guy you know? name starts with an S?

Yeah, because we all know Paris is where the real money is.

Someone should call the FBI. Every day that passes is creating more victims.

I don't think it's up to us to decide who how or when to punish him, or even give him up to others (Feds) so others can punish him.
But we do have to stop this and publicizing his name might be the first step. Just the word punishment didn't sound right to me.

The word 'punishment' doesn't sound right?
Who does it sound right for? A thief? Rapist? Murderer?  I'm sorry to get extreme here, but that's an extremely juveline thing to write, and I've never seen you write that way before.

If they're screwing ppl over, and have done this time and time again, then punishment is the only way to make it stop.

Any way you can provide me with some proof so I can bring it to this guy (maybe it will help him if he knows earlier jess not getting his $$. He'll dispute so he stops paying interest on his charges...)

I don't have proof and frankly proof probably does not exist, I never said he won't get his money although he has better chances betting on flea races.
I have been following this for a while and I have tons of data points that don't add up. Everything just points to a scam. I am not entirely sure what the scam is though I have a pretty good idea, I just don't see any way for this to end well for anybody

Worth making a post on this crap or does it just legitimize it?
Either way it'll turn into a p$%^ing contest I'm afraid.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I think the smartest thing for you is not to say anything, you don't want the name Dansdeals associated with this in any way.

What about a post on pyramid schemes in general?

Was this S dude involved in MHA or any other shady stuff?
Does he think everything is legit?
