    Help!!! I got scammed by nerdyperdy

    sigh.. I am so mad that I didn't do my research on this dude before buying a wii from him. And I should have stopped the transaction when he wanted me to give the money as a gift instead of a payment...
    So I just need help, post reply on what I should do, I'll gladly give more information if I get people to talk in the this thread.
    By the way I have made the conclusion that it was a scam around last week but hesitated to post because there could be a small chance that he just can't access his email account. But he hasn't logged on the forum site since the day I gave him the $100 dollars (over a month). The item was priced at $200 but he made me believe him when he said he would require $100 dollars for shipping it and giving me the item first, then when I received the item I would then pay the next $100 payment. I sent over 100 emails to this guy, even got his twitter and face book (apparently he is a drug abuser *Doggone*) and he only replied to about 20 of them...
    the $100 isn't that big of a deal but I am so mad that I was stupid enough to get tricked, by a person who was already known as a scammer

    Can you please link us to the specific thread he was publically advertising in on this forum?

    yes here is the link the the thread NerdyPerdy made
    http://www.wiihacks.com/buy-sell-tra...20gig-hdd.html
    another thing I should have taken in to consideration was why no one bought it and it was posted on October, I saw it on December

    After a little googling, it looks like WiiHacks isn't the only place this "nerdyperdy" guy has scammed someone.

    sadly I was so excited that I didn't even bother to do additional research. I mean this guy was BANNED from another forum because he pulled a stunt like this to another individual.
    I hate being tricked, I'm ussually a smart consumer but this was my first time conducting business at a forum website so I really didn't know how the transaction was going to occur. =\

    Hmmm, I hate so see someone come along and with the potential to mess up a good thing for everyone.
    Unfortunetly there is nothing we can do about your situation, but will need to converse with other staff to think of a better method for managing this section and it's participants, so as not to reflect badly upon our site and this section of it. If such a thing is even possible.

    Well atleast this guy only ripped me off $100 instead of the full $200, but still I'm $100 poorer.
    I'm spamming his face book email, and email for a reply.
    Please remember, I'm not 100% sure this was a scam, but he doesn't have good credibility, he has done a scam before so that doesn't really put him in a good position.
    There is always the chance that he could just be gone somewhere, or possible dead *he is a drug abuser* but I would still consider this a scam, he is not cooperating with me...

    Can you provide links to other scam situations, so that I can at least procede with the banning of this member?

    here is some specific links if you prefer

    SCAMMED BY NerdyPerdy!!! DON'T DEAL WITH HIM - Page 2

    wtt white 16 gig 3gs for same but 3g

    I'll summarize it as well so this guy buys two phones from NerdyPerdy and he gets 2 broken processors instead and he is extremely mad. I understand and relate. lol

    Actually I would say the exact same thing this guy wrote

    Here is the quote from the guy that got scammed (the profanity is from this guy NOT me so don't edit it, it shows the state of mind of this person)

    Unfortunetely, can't let the profanity fly here. Links to the issues was sufficient.
