\threads\scam.htm
:lol:

hahaha, that brings back some memories. And a good story too...
Something nobody else knows (well now you know) is that the creator of that scam actually contacted me a few time by email, and then a few years later by phone!

One day I recieved a random strange phone call from him requesting to finally remove his name from all those posts etc because: "he was in seach for a new job and he didn't wanted his new potential boss to find out what he did".

The requests went from cold hard threating ("blahblah or else I do this and that to you, I found out where you live, I'm that good!!!".... me: "wow, nice, my address can be found in public posts, congratz in finding out! ps: I know where you live too"....him: <silence for a while>) to pathetic plees (I could swear he was actually sobbing) "oh pretty pretty please, I'm so not going to find a new job now, if you could only please remove my name and all that info from there, please please, I ask you nicely, I know what I did was wrong, etc etc blahblah and sob sob sob"... to threating again. I think he actually tried to bribe me too at one point.

He also explained (more like trying to find an excuse if you ask me) that his friend used his computer without him knowing it (hence why his name would be in the file properties) to write the thing. And that he only recorded a video for it and didn't actually participated in making the thing. However, minutes later he contradicted that while trying to find another excuse. The gold was when he said he mailed me a link to a "respectable" forum so I could see for myself that he was not the script kiddie we portrayed him to be in that msgplus thread..... the forum was a hackers forum with all kinds of (messenger) malware where many programs had his name as 'creator' and it appeared that he was a very active elite member if not mod of that forum!... so roflol...

It's such a pity I don't have a record of that phone call.
(note: he called me from another country, so I was also trying to string him along, making this a very expensive phone call for him... in the end I think it was nearly an hour I had him on the phone).
