A scam artist screwed with the wrong forum. After paying for parts they didn't receive, members of the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club collected evidence on the guilty party, managed to discover his real identity, then alerted police.
The sting was lead by NASIOC member Team Scream, who collected evidence from several victims, traced the perp's ID back through local chapters then presented police in Dalles, Oregon with a ready made case. Two days ago, he received this email from a detective there:
"I wanted to let you know that I have arrested and charged [Redacted] in relation to this case. He was charged with two counts ID Theft, one count of Theft 1, and Computer Crime. All of these are felonies in Oregon. He will most likely be going to prison for a period of time based on his past criminal convictions. He was using Riggs name without his knowledge. If you want to pass this on to the other victims in this case, by all means do so. If you have any questions feel free to call or e-mail. Thanks for your assistance."
Go forum, go!
