Scammed by bleeding_through (Anthony Bryant)

*****UPDATE, as of October 17, 2011 all money has been refunded*****


Figured I would make this thread as I noticed today Anthony (bleeding_through) is still active on Pbnation and trying to sell a marker. I realize that this happened quite some time ago and my only reason for posting is I don't want to see anyone else get scammed by this kid

To make a long story short last year I paid for a 2k5'd shock tech timmy which Anthony never shipped. I tried to file a claim with paypal but unfortunately it was rejected as it was filed after the 30 day limited. My mistake for trusting him and giving him enough time to set things straight. Due to personal reasons I was unable to pursue things further at the time and cut my losses and moved on. Below Ive included a series of text messages and PMs between Anthony and myself detailing the transaction.

Quick update with this situation. Anthony contacted me Tuesday October 4th wishing to resolve this issue by offering to refund my money. Hes now ignored two of my PMs and no money has been transferred to my Paypal account. Not a good way to set things right. Its been almost a year since he ripped me off and I couldn't care less about the money as I would rather everyone know what kind of person he is Correspondence is below.

You have posted very complete information on this thread. It's very clear to anyone that he didn't complete his end of the transaction. You may want to point him to this thread to show him that the whole PBN community knows what he's doing. It's too bad that you didn't bring this issue here sooner. I'm not sure if it's too late to file with the police department. In any case the mod (USAFWD) and/or forum captain (jmorisaki) will review the case, and hopefully get hold of him. He may be banned for scam if he doesn't resolve this issue.

If you payed by credit card call them and explain the situation and open a claim with them. The credit card company has a different claim process then paypal.

As well as it is not to late to file a police report. You have up to three years to file a complaint for theft. Go to your police department and file a police report as well as a ic3.gov form. It is not to late to do something seeing as you have all the information you need to prove your point.

Thanks for providing probably the clearest situation here in theft report . As stated above it's not too late to file a police report, and if that neg feedback is from him you can easily get a mod to remove that according to what I've seen.

Did you post negative feedback?
It could be in the screenshots somewhere but I didn't see it.

Another quick update for the thread. I sent another PM to Anthony late last week but he is simply ignoring my messages now. Hes really not leaving me many options to resolve this.

I've been tipped off by a member on this site that I should get in contact with his first sergeant or equivalent of his unit since he is a active coast guard. Apparently they have the power to reduce his pay and directly deposit it to me until all money is refunded. I have all the details I need of his unit and just need to make a phone call. So that's one option.


Hardpainball: Thank you. Your right, I wish I did bring this up sooner. But Iím okay knowing now that the community knows exactly what kind of person Anthony is. I hope a moderator does try to contact him and or bans him since I donít think this will be resolved any time soon.

Hgr: The funds were transferred from my account and no credit card was used, so Iím SOL on that one. Thanks for the info. Iím going to hold off on filing a report with the police department for the moment.

Happyfeet1030: Hey no problem. I wanted to provide everything I possibly could for this transaction so that there isnít a single doubt what kind of person Anthony is. Also he never left negative feedback for me, nor have I had any in the 9 years Iíve been active on this site.

Aerosaaber: I did post negative feedback from Anthony last year in this feedback thread.

I have never heard of a commanding officer can dock his pay and send it to you. But I'm sure they'd be happy to make his life a living hell until he comes through.

This is true. The military can do that. This is a back up guaranty, and makes it safer to deal with military personnel.

That is not true. What his unit can do is counsel him on his requirement to pay a just debt but since the military did not enter into that contract, unless you have a court order to garnish his wages they can not deduct money from his pay and send it to you. Not that the OP did but if that were the case, what would stop someone with pretty good computer skills from making up those screenshots and sending them to the CO of every military member requesting money.

OP still need to provide reliable proof of the deal. He needs to contact the scammer's 1st Sergeant with the proof.

I hope to see the OP verify this which would mean this is on it's way to resolution.
