So i just planned to visit all of the places with the last names in his general area. (small town) The first one was a hit. I knocked and he came out and looked like he had seen a host. He had just bought a miata. He had done no work to my head, so i told him he needed to go to the atm and get me my cash back. It worked out well, maybe because i was twice his size.
Lets hope thats how my situation turns out haha.

spoof your callerID to appear as a local caller to his cell phone. Call him and use various methods to determine his identity. Come on guys, you're slipping.

UPDATE:

So I managed to get the PS3 to run for a minute. His user name is ALEC. So I assume he was not kidding about his name.

I wonder if that guy I called actually is the father of the Alec that scammed me? Would someone else mind calling and trying to find out? (Already used my number).

Also, anyone know if I could pull any useful data off the ps3 harddrive? (I know, it is encrypted)

Comon guys, Alec was sloppy here. We gotta be able to figure this out.

sjmarcy needs some sort of a medal or something. I laughed at some of these posts a lil more than the turtle ******* the shoe vid, and that resulted in at least some laughing.

Isn't his data stored in the PS3 marketplace thing? I know it holds my credit card number and name for purchases. My system is updating right now but I'll take a look later today and let you know. I think its PSN -> account mgmt -> ??

I'm not a turbo guy…so there is that…

Besides I don't stalk, buy PS3s without looking them over, email-bomb people, etc.
