blakamin: I had a "parts wanted" ad.
Guy rang me up, I paid, never recieved the item.... he went to jail over xmas.
He scammed me and 15 other people to the tune of $8k
He was 17..
Was on Stuff.co.nz when he got sentenced to a year inside
edit. TM sent me an email warning me that someone had looked at my ad that was a scammer.
I emailed and told them, yeah, I know, he scammed me and I reported it to you... Only then did I get a reply.
The New Plymouth police were good tho.
One year for scamming 8k? I wish career crims would get harsh sentences like that!
