Exclamation Any and all mods: Help is needed in bringing a known scammer down.

From the Theft Report thread:

I've been working w/ the Brooksfield PD in taking a Joseph M. Dono down. I've done all I can by myself, and now I need the help of the moderators.

I've been on the phone with Det. Gomes, and this Joseph Dono is of course lying. She said it's his word vs. mine, at this point. He is claiming that TMX Enz0 2 was not him. If I can obtain the IP, or anything that will help me prove that TMX Enz0 2 and Joseph Dono are one in the same, Det. Gomes will be able to charge him under another statute.

Original Theft Report

Thanks in advance.

You'll need to get the Police to contact Tony for the actual details (e-mail [email protected]), but an initial IP search and e-mail search definitely leads me to believe they are the same person.

That user is "Ban On Sight" from PBNation, for fraud and spamming.

Many of his username contact e-mails have 'dono' in the e-mail.

We have all his usernames, IP information, AIM information and everything available at a moments notice for when the police contact us.

Thanks for your consideration guys!

I talked to Det. Gomes today, and she got my message about e-mailing Tony. She said she did, and is waiting on a reply. Please work promptly.

Thanks again,
Richie

Just got off of the phone w/ Det. Gomes. Mr. Dono aka PB HardTarget aka tmx_enz0 2 was arrested 2 days ago.

Det. Gomes compiled the 2 recently scammed by him (one of which was me), and a few previous cases that she's had on him. He is being charged with mail fraud, and the complied cases will show the court a pattern of this scamming.

He's due for court in Nov.

I will keep you guys posted as this case unfolds. Justice is so close to being served. It's no longer about restitution (although it'd be nice), but about having people like him pay for his wrong doings.

Update: Mr. Dono has gone through is Nov. and early Jan. court dates. I've filled out all restitution paperwork, and he's been found guilty. I was just called a couple of days ago by someone affiliated with the case asking my permission for him to have a cleared record (since he's a first-time offender) if he pays his restitution and does all his community service.

I agreed only because the other option would be for him to re-enter the court system w/o that option (and that would take another 4+ months). I just want to get paid back already.

I feel like this guy got exactly what was coming to him, and I hope he's learned a lesson from all of this scamming.

I will keep you guys posted as I get paid my restitution.

About 7 months since this whole ordeal started... but I bet it would've been quicker if he didn't live in FL and me in IL.

I owe it to persistence, and being pissed off just enough that someone would have the nerve to try to scam me.
