  Information
Name:
   Stig Olsen
Email Address:
   oamateur45@gmail.com
I have received an email from a person who calles himself Stig Olsen, based in Sweden (Motala), offering me a product that I had posted on a forum (wanted). The forum is an official paragliding site of Germany (dhv.de).
He emailed me directly stating that he wanted to sell me the product because he had it and needed money to buy a guitar for his son.
He did sent me photos, which turned out to be copied from another site and theu occured later to be retouched very badly.

Well, I was dumb to accept his offer and I made a bank transfer.
But of course I didn\'t get anything and never heard of him again.

He gave the following information:
Name.. Stig Olsen
IBAN: SE48 9150 0000 0915 9552 0866
BIC: SKIASESS
Bank..Skandiabanken
Bank address .. Motala, Sweden
My address is Ulaxgatan 61 SE-59131 Motala, Sweden.

By contactig the bank they said they could not do anything for me, maybe the police.
I have reported the fraud to the police in the Linköping County (Ostergatland) and they have filed this report, but probably can do nothing against it, because the persons name is probably not Stig Olsen and probably he isn\'t Swedish also.

I lost my money and have learned a lesson, but it is a shame that trust that trust is seriously violated!

I hope seriously that other people will not be affected by him.
