    Solved >> someone tried to steal a Heatware Identity .. details inside

    http://forums.anandtech.com/messagev...VIEWTMP=Linear


    anyone know why this guy would post on AT and not here first?

    seems that he would post all of that here since his heat shows most deals here and none at AT

    IP address is exact match for TeraTank. Under this account, this turkey claimed omega65's heat as his own. His profile says he's from Philadelphia, Pa, but his IP is from Castle Rock, Co.

    ahah, 10 99$ 74G Raptor, a bunch of FX-55 and 4000+ and 270$ 6800GTs... not a very clever scammer, he could've at least tried to be a little less obvious... same email but gmail vs netscape, both from Pennsylvania, I'd contact Trollhunters and Omega asap...

    Re: Need some help.. I think someone might be trying to steal Omega65's Heat and scam

    read my comments at the end of the thread on AT

    WHY would the guy post at AT where he has NEVER sold anything before >> INSTEAD of HERE



    I emailed the heat address and never got a reply


    I will take $15 bets that the guy on AT is not the real owner of that heat.. post your name here if you want to take that bet... I put my 208-0-0 heat as collateral that I will pay the bet

    Yes Omega is a very good trader but OP actually thinks this is a troll using his heat.

    Exactly.. Omega is an excellent trader as evidenced by HIS heat

    The person posting at AT chose to make a username similar to Omega65's and then try to do a little "identity theft" and sell over $5000 worth of goods

    The super low prices sucker in those people who don't do their homework.

    I trust that.. my comments over there were directed at anyone who wanted to jump the gun and pay....

    I would rather miss out on a great deal than get scammed

    If this is not omega and I suspect it is not, I have dealt with Wali before and he is a excellent guy to deal with.
