For the first time in a very long time he has started paying me again, with monthly 3 figure amounts.
He has a very long way to go, but anything helps to reduce the debt and increase his credibility.
Don't know what caused this sudden change, but don't care as long as I'm getting some $$$'s back.
He has paid me again.
I really hope I can post one day that he is an honest guy and paid me back everything I gave him.
Until then, although his 3 figure payments are low, anything helps.
You said he owes you five figures and is paying you back three figures a month. So if we take the low end of that he owes you $10,000 and is paying you back $100 per month. If this is correct and assuming he continues to pay the same amount every month that will be $1,200 annually and the loan would take 8 years and 4 months to pay back. All of this probably without interest. So at best you're a break even proposition but then you have not accounted for deflation, stress this situation has caused you, etc.
Update on the scam artists Dmytro Romanyuk aka Damian Ray and his accomplice wife, who then also became a victim of his through marriage fraud.
I had posted links on the original thread post to the probable work place of his "wife" that the Japanese PI found.
Isn't it funny then that the link to the hair salon staff with her name is gone. I'm sure she found out and deleted her info since the PI called there and asked her some personal questions. I'm still considering paying him to follow her home and get her address to enforce judgement in Japan. The PI also says he has used other alternative methods of getting people to pay debts before, but he was vague about it. Yakuza perhaps? He has also mentioned other creative ways he has of embarrassing people enough so they give in and pay, but they all cost big bucks of course. A Japanese guy I met on facebook that met Damian in Japan told me that most PI's in Japan are associated with the Yakuza anyways, and do the PI gig on the side as a real job. But Damian is paying now, although barely enough to keep up with the interest. I'm assuming Rieko is paying him nothing and everything he pays me is coming from his ESL job somewhere in Japan.
The massage parlour link also had a clear picture of her and that picture is now gone, so both links to her name and her pic are now dead. Not a coincidence I think:
He paid again...kudos to him.
It's amazing that he's actually paying you. Perhaps this guy is genuinely turning over a new leaf in his life and regrets what he did in the past. If so, you should forgive him (once you get paid back in full).
Another payment, no April fools.
That's 5 now.
Can you move this to the scam and rip off section?
I posted in the rant section by mistake...thanks.
Ok done. Does he know about this thread? Is that why hes paying you now?

He's been paying me a few hundred monthly for a year, so we are into the thousands by now.
Still quite a ways to go though before we're square.
