WARNING: Watch out for this scam artist - Grfldno

Hey folks I just wanted to make you aware of a player that goes by Grfldno on both full tilt poker and poker stars. He has been creating tonnes of gimmick accounts on twoplustwo poker forum and scamming people over the past few months. Our latest victim was yesterday that he scammed for $100.00.

Scammers in the poker community are not welcomed so please be aware of this person. Remember if you take part in player to player transfers, please do your research.

Would a mod here be able to add in his screen name into the title? We want it to be well known to watch out for him. This way, google will send people right to this thread.

Thanks :)

Yea - I will edit the title. We don't allow public transfer requests - but some members get them by pm so it is good to have a heads up.

This guy may have already tried to hit here. I got a PM a couple of days ago from a guy who said his name was Brad and he wanted to trade something. I just deleted it, but now it has me wondering if it was him.

Thanks for the warning, but I have to wonder why anyone falls victim to these scams to begin with? We need to be less naive, because the world is full of people eager to take advantage of you if you'll let them.

Just to re-affirm what the OP just said. Anyone doing player-player transfers needs to be very very careful who they use, really if you have any other method (even if it takes a few days), its worth it.

You will have very little recourse with a pokersite if you get scammed.

There are tons of internet scammers out there taking advantage of the poker community. They make 20 accounts on all the sites (even PS and FTP do little to stop them - well until they cost PS or FTP money), they especially love to create tons of AIM/MSN accounts then add you and try to fleece you for money in a variety of ways, they even are succesful at trying to mimic well-known players in a multitude of ways.

There are a bunch who make so much I am sure it is their entire source of income. They have a ton of angles to shoot to get their money.

If you ever want a peek in how some of these guys work, you can take a look at 2+2 transfer thread, or some of the abuse threads at parttimepoker where these guys try to run off with money...

They get their money mostly from money transfers, staking arrangements, even long-term begging from rail and AIM

Its funny that this person contacted me on facebook after a failure tranfer, Which only went wrong, I've never scammed a single person, And neither will I.

This person have lifethreaten me on facebook, and said that the police would get me and also that he would make my name known all over internet (That part he tries really hard to obviously, because he directly beg you to put my name on google)

Anyways, When that's said, I really do not care about what anyone thing/belive about me, I know the truth..

PS; He also told me that he had talked to pokerstars and Fulltilt and said they were gonna ban me.
PSS; I actually called both sites, and none of them had heard of me..

So this kid either wants attention by overeacting, or he's just plain retarded.

I wanted to actually tell you the truth, So you choose wether to belive it or not,

Kindly Regards,

The person that wanted a tranfer just tranfered the money to me before making a deal, and If someone just tranfers money to me, I dont complain..

Yes, I am banned from 2p2(Which isnt a big deal for me, since I dont like the forum anyways, its full of kids)

Railbirds? I dont know about that site anyways, so if I am banned there, It really doesnt hurt me.

So go on and ban me here aswell, As I know the truth, and really dont care what any other human being thinks :)

So did you keep his money or did you transfer it back to him?

seeing as (a) he asked for it, (b) we don't really want him disappearing then popping back up in the future and scamming someone and (c) a quick search of 2p2 reveals that he's talking crap i just banned him.

The way he said they transferred before deal was made leads me to believe the scumbag kept it.

Fella, you just admitted taking funds that did not belong to you...up until then, I was about to say that nobody should be acclaimed "guilty" until proven. Sounds like you are still a kid (in mind).

Regardless, if you took money that does not belong to you, you should turn around and return it ASAP...ever heard of karma.

Do what is right, Wally
