    again, tell him you will do it and you just need his name and address to ship it to.. reverse psychology to get what u need to report it but also report it to the law if need be.

    Don't think I want to do that. I am talking to verizon fraud division on Monday. They are very good at what they do. They can find him. That's if they are interested. He hasn't broken a law....that was presented to me earlier. But he has INTENT to break the law. Said Asurion will want to know too.
    If anyone is laughing at me. Please don't. I also had my credit card compromised two weeks ago. Card in my possession. My bank was suspicious and they are on the trail.....technology is amazing today!

    I told him to politely take a flying leap. Don't think he would and I have blocked him. I appreciate your suggestions but there are ways to get his information. I don't know why he has singled me out. But he has made a huge mistake. HUGE

    Glad you're not banned.

    And he did make a huge mistake. Don't take this the wrong way but he probably singled you out because you're a woman. Truth is he must not realize women are just as capable as men in any subject. The local Honda dealership was amazed at how much my best friend (girl) knew about car maintenance and warranties.

    Is this thread really necessary?
    I mean it's just common sense, you're not going to send your phone in the mail to a stranger.
    If you're not smart enough to figure that one out there is really no help for you.

    Yes, they are needed. If you one day get a PM from someone that you may not know, asking for a phone from you and to defraud your insurance company, sure you might have the common sense to say no, but what about that one time when you are in a particular mood and say awwww, I am so sorry, sure I will.

    Then you can say, "hey, I read about this on android central one day, I shouldn't listen to this person and report them".

    Yes, of course it's necessary; people have lapses in common sense. How else to explain marriage?

    They could find him but they won't. If he's not using Verizon's mobile or wired Internet they'd have to issue subpoenas to get IP addresses and user logs. That's a big deal (you may recall the uproar when the RIAA and content creators try to get IP addresses for copyright infringers) and they won't do it for something this insignificant. That's why someone asked you to get the information another way. And even so, while Verizon may claim to care when you talk to them on the phone (to match your outrage and make you confident that justice will surely prevail) it is more likely that little or nothing will be done. There's bigger fish to fry.

    The credit card analogy is completely not apt. And what happened to you with your credit card happens all the time. The whole mention of it is irrelevant. Perhaps its purpose was to engender some sympathy towards you, but you haven't been harmed by either recent, apparently traumatic, episode.

    And as for the multiple thread question, I would just have responded to the original one with an update.

    We all appreciate what appears to be a sincere, deep since of justice. But the pursuit of justice and the reality of a world with limited resources are often at odds.

    I agree, other than getting him off the forums the thread serves no purpose. It's not like you're forced to use your insurance to get a phone for him - and obviously he just wants you to get a new phone for him so that he can resale it and try to make more money off of it. Just ignore the person, block his email address, block his forum handle, and Verizon/Sprint allows you to block phone numbers from their website for free (AT&T users aren't so fortunate, not sure about T-Mobile).

    Then move on.

    This thread was fun to read, though :-)

    I don't. I am assuming it's a he because that's how the OP referred to him.

    I prefer to call human beings he or she instead of it, and anything more is simply too much to type so often...

    There's no reason to think that someone trying to run a scam is going to give you his/her real name.

    That's true, but it's foolish to think that his name is definitely Ray because he said it is.

    I think the OP was just bringing this scam to everyone's attention. I don't understand trashing them for trying to raise awareness. The tone in which some posters responded to the OP was not called for, in my opinion. Come on Android people, don't go down that road, let's keep it cool here.
