I'm sorry, but I do think it is a bit much to be digging up all of this guy's personal info.

[...]I found an address that seems more viable.[...]


I don't know what your source for that address is, but it close to where I had him pegged living at.

Read through the Moreno Valley local paper's website (http://blog.pe.com/crime-blotter/) and didn't see anything mentioned that would validate his story.

*again* though, I stress - the lack of evidence doesn't mean the story we're being told isn't true. It simply means that it cannot be verified based on the limited information we're being provided.

Wouldn't you be more fucked up for being ok with being swindled? So I should trick everyone in America out of a dollar, but it's ok, because you only lost a dollar.

I'm not trying to defend OR, but posting someone's personal inflammation online isn't exactly the rational thing to do here. It opens up his family to harassment. Granted, his entire family could be assholes but I gotta say that the way some people are acting in this thread is beyond unreasonable.

And honestly, how much could they have possibly made from this? They asked for $600 and I doubt they made much more after they met that quota. Also, I don't think they allowed for more than $10 per person (though I could be wrong here). There are worse people out there to go after.

You don't understand. This is CAG. That $10 could have gone towards adding another cheap shitty game we would never play to our backlogs.

Silly question - but if someone was going to go through the effort to harass someone over this, couldn't they find all this same information themselves? I've found several things regarding Mr. Boaz (although nothing to support the robbery story) online and I don't have much experience stalking folks.

If you didn't want people to harrass him then why did you post all of his info on a public forum?

My bad, looking at the forum on my phone and mixed up ava pics. Still, the only reason anyone would post a private phone number online would be to encourage harrassment.

Or because the information was cut and pasted, in whole, from another online source and the person who posted it sincerely would like for someone to manage to find something that supports the claims made by the person to whom the information belongs?

No idea, but if they did make 1,000 boxes like they claim, that's $10,000+.

I'm not going to claim and say posting the address what I did was the best idea but I felt everyone who felt they got ripped off and feels this is a scam I gave them a starting point. I found a lot of addresses from this individual and there a lot of people that scam many.

If you feel what I posted was unnecessary quit your complaining and message a mod about it. What I posted is no different than what is posted in the eBay scammer thread, take for what you want and anybody that says it's only $10 is right but $10 across 1000 people is going a bit too far.

Yes, they can. But you don't want your contact information floating around along with words like fraud, thief, and scammer around the internet. There are plenty of internet vigilantes around and I don't think I need to explain how mob mentality works.

No idea, but if they did make 1,000 boxes like they claim, that's $10,000+.

I think both of you are mistaken... are you guys sure they actually collected $10,000 in donations? They only wanted $600 to begin with and then once they met that quota, they said they would continue to accept donations for boxes to help fund the site.

I highly doubt they received another 940 donations for $10 after their quota was met. I'm guessing they decided to have 1,000 boxes made because of bulk discounts, not because they received $10,000 in donations.

And honestly, if you're not sure that's the right address... then you should probably remove it. You don't wanna get an innocent family harassed like Spike Lee did... twice.

I was one of the first donors have adamantly tried to defend them until this theft fiasco but you guys need to be a bit more rational here.

If the lack of information I've dug up has shown me anything, if Mr. Boaz really doesn't want his name associated with "fraud, thief, and scammer", then he is the only one who can provide the information that shows he isn't.

When you tell a story, you can't just expect random strangers to believe every word of it without any evidence.

His story does have a lot of holes, but you guys don't exactly have any real non-circumstantial evidence to suggest he is lying. And just because there is a lack of information on him doesn't really mean much. Public domain information is only there if someone puts it there, it's possible that he's a private person.

Additionally, if this was a scam, he could have easily ran off and not come back to post his story. But in posting his story, he put his name out there. And even then, he could have disappeared but he's still around OR (I think?).

I agree - and have stated many, many times - I have found no information that shows he is lying.

There's two realistic possibilities - either he's lying or he's telling the truth.

If he's telling the truth, then we random folks on the internet have a chance of finding something - but there's one guy who can, without doubt, provide evidence either way. And he refuses to do so. Until he does, then he can't really be too upset that the rest of us are doing our best.

I can't argue against that. You are right that he could have quelled things quickly by showing a police report (even though it's meaningless) or something... not sure if it's bad judgement or if he didn't file the report because he was running a meth lab and didn't want the cops around.
