How do I track down this f*cker?

Okay, here's the situation. I bought something off someone on craigslist(in excess of $350). I have bought and sold literally hundreds of things online but I guess I should have known I would eventually get screwed. This guy seemed legit and I talked to him on the phone multiple times and he really sounded genuine. As soon as he received the money order(last monday) his phone was disconnected...weird. Everytime I call, from any phone I get voicemail before it even rings. He lives in Dallas so if I can find him I would love to go get my money back. Being smart I sent him a USPS money order that detailed exactly what it was for, so hopefully they will refund me but I HIGHLY doubt it. I have an address and a name but I don't think either of them are really his. Since I spoke with him on email a few times I decided to Myspace his email and his profile is set to private and he keeps refusing my friend request(go figure, haha). Well the name he gave me and the name that shows up on his Myspace are different, it also says he's 24 and lives in Texas(since he's set to private that is all the info I can get). His email is an AOL account so if anyone has any tips on how to track down this PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PM me ASAP!!!!! Thanks guys.

PM'd. I don't want him knowing I am actively seeking his out just yet. I'd much rather just show up and surprise him. I PM'd you his email so that not everyone tries to add him.

Maybe if a girl adds him he'd be more receptive.

Googled his email(minus the @aol.com) and he posts on some rx-8 forums and on one post he referenced his email AND phone number for another member to get ahold of him. I am now googling the name he goes by on the RX-8 site and reading his past 71 posts to see if he has a real name. On his voicemail for the new number he says it's Kevin blah blah blah, which is the name I get when searching his myspace, whereas he gave me the name David.

Got ahold of him. Apparantely the guy who I was dealing with is a real person and for some reason he had been emailing me from his brother's email. Brother sounded real nice(so did he though) and I explained the situation fully. I also informed him that with a few simple searches I tracked down his alternate emails, cell and house phone numbers, business contacts, and home adress. He said he would get back with me ASAP, I said you have tonight and tomorrow I will be at the police station filing charges with him AND his brother.

Yuppp, I'm feeling good now. I now love the internet one again. While I was at it I googled my email and went ahead and deleted it in any posts that popped up. His brother just called me back and said he got ahold of his fiancee who was fully aware of the situation. She said his cell wasn't working but he would definately call me as soon as he got home tonight.

If you need hep with the RX-8 site lead an employee and friend of mine is the head moderator/administrator on that board.

PM me if I can help with anything.
