SCAMMED BY Grubarek

Dear All,

I am posting this in this forum because I am trying to use every resource I can to expose someone who scammed me.

I play a game called KnightOnline over the net. I responded to a post in another forum to buy a character in this game for US Dollars. After many pm;s back and forth I worked out a deal with this fellow. I sent him a Western Union for the character and pmed him the information to receive the cash. He gave me the information for the account and everything seemed fine. About 10 days later I tried to log on to the account and found out he had somehow changed the user name and pw on the account. This leaves me not only out the cash from the WU but also valuable items in the game as well. After repeated attempts to work things out with this guy I still have nothing. I am reporting this scam to WU and will exhaust every resource I can to expose this person. Here is his exact information:

Pawel or Zbyszek Grubarek
Skomiena Czarna 11
Poland

Email: "Zybs" - Grubarek@hotmail

I have proof of this transaction. I am hoping that someone in Poland can do something, anything to help me in this matter. You are welcome to contact me through this forum and posting.

Thank you for your time. I hope this never happens to any of you.

When I hear such stories about "somehow" changing username/password, I tend to think it doesn't hold water. I feel that either you screw something up in the system or don't exactly know how to login to the system or how it works. There are very little chances someone could just change this information. I assume the one who could login (you) could have changed it too - so why didn't you change it right after you logged in..

Did you write a letter [snail mail] and ask what is going on. If so, how long is it since you wrote. What advice did WU give you ?

There could be a simple solution to this, but by showing your hand the way you have is not going to help.

This post may as well be written in Mongolian, Characters for sale, Important things in the game? I'm confused does that mean people actually pay money for non physical items which can't be used outside a computer?

This will never happen to me as I have never played a computer game,
