I do believe that I'm savvy enough not to be taken in by a fraudster, known in the UK as a 'rogue trader'. But I have been. Despite doing what I thought was enough due diligence on the trader prior to handing over any money. I'm often on the lookout for different Hikvision products to explore, ideally at low prices (Scots upbringing), so when I found a collection of new (and new to me) devices for sale on Gumtree at a price that seemed too good to be true - they were. After a month, no delivery, despite multiple promises. And my emails and texts and phone calls now blocked. In the big scheme of things, not that big a deal. More of an embarrassment. What is fascinating though, once you get over the feeling of expectations dashed, is how much information the internet can provide. Facebook pages, website content, whois domain name lookups, reverse whois lookups (great for investigative work), UK Companies House searches (multiple compulsorily dissolved companies - that says something), links to family members and friends, Google StreetView etc etc. The connections just grow and grow. Once it's out there, it's out there. I feel just like one of the Chinese teens who get class credits for filling out their target research portfolio in support of the APT. But that was in another life. I'll hopefully be finding out how the UK courts system deals with this type of unwanted situation. There is a 'Simple Procedure' Court process in Scotland that's remarkably well supported by advice and guidance. Once some time-based pre-requisites have been completed I'll be initiating that. Without wanting to prejudice any future activity by giving too much away - and admittedly a bit of a long shot (but there was a Facebook post that got quickly deleted) I wondered if any Scottish members of this forum had any dealings with any CCTV supply and install companies in the central belt of Scotland, specifically in the Livingston, West Lothian area. If so - I'd be interested to hear from you.
