Yet another forum offering the scammer help for my supposed blackmailing him.
http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1918155
There were some people on that forum were quick to jump to the conclusion that the scammer who posted was legitimate.
Fortunately some members of that forum questioned the scammer's post and the thread is closed.
The scammer again stated:
I am the owner of a roof repair business in the UK and I have major problems with a blog owner who is posting false negative reviews about my website. This person asked me for money in order to remove the bad reviews. I paid him. He asked to be paid by a service called Liberty Reserve, I had to send a wire transfer to a website he provided. I paid 300 pounds. Then he removed the reviews. Now he is back and asking for more money. I am desperate, I don't know what to do, a friend who understands about computers advised me that I must search an online community and ask for advice. I am 42 years old and I only know how to use the internet and my email. When the false negative reviews appeared on google, I lost 80% of my customers, people calling my office calling us scammers. It was horrible. Please, I need some advice if possible.

...and another:
http://packetpunks.com/Thread-Help-me-please
Apparently there is some confusion on this forum as to what is going on.
"metal", supposedly one of the forum administrators, posted:
"RE: Help me, please
How do you know it was not legit? Is it a scam? The guy was PMing me. Acid said he got the guys password for him."
Acid refers to another forum member who posted on the thread and supposedly has my password.
Acid apparently has engaged in private conversations with StuartSHart, the scammer.
Has "metal" read my blog?
Does "metal" condone members of his forum hacking other people's accounts?
"metal" has a link in his posts as his signature:
"This is my website of web design. Me and Gpizzle designed this forums."
That link leads to:
http://qualitycomputerri.com/
Would I use his services now that I know he condones this type of behavior on a forum he runs?
Looks like the moderator "RS BADGER" is the only one who posted on the thread that has a brain.
"Delete this thread its spammed all over the net every forum imaginable has this posted on it"

He's at it again.
The scammer has now "enlisted" the services of members at:
www.hackforums.net
to try to get this blog killed.
Yet again people are falling for his story that I am/have blackmailed him.

Here is new his post at:
http://www.hackforums.net/showthread.php?tid=634503&page=1

Data from his previous post:

I would like to thank the admins of the Black Hat SEO blackhatworld.com site for deleting the thread containing the lies posted by the scammer and threats by Black Hat SEO forum members.
I will be more than happy to post those threats on my blog if I get any more harrassment by those forum members.
I am sure they do not represent other members or the the owner of blackhatworld.com

I had an interesting afternoon to say the least.
I went over my daily list of domains to find fake ones and posted some in the spoof site post on this blog, the rest I handed off to an associate at aa419.org to post.

I then decided to open the chat on the blog in case any intended victims had questions or information about these scam sites I deal with on a daily basis.
I noticed the chat area filled up and people started to message me with things like:

No Muie: Hello!

87.174.254.239: You have put up false scam reports on your blog, and are emailing people asking for money, otherwise their business will fail.
No Muie: Oh please, stop
No Muie: I'm laughing too much
87.174.254.239: Smart guy, but unfortunately, loads of people have reported your blog to blogspot, good luck with it all :)
87.174.254.239: Your blog will be taken down soon, so get ready to purchase a domain, lowlife.
No Muie: loads of who? the Indians?
87.174.254.239: Actually, I'm from Germany, scumbag.
No Muie: ya ya ya
87.174.254.239: I just read a thread on a forum where i'm active, and a guy who's received threats from you.
87.174.254.239: Bad mouthing their business, calling them scammers.
87.174.254.239: And then, asking for big amounts of money to take down the post.
No Muie: hmm
No Muie: you are on the same drugs as them?
87.174.254.239: What the f**k are you talking about?
87.174.254.239: I'm just helping those guys out, what you've fu**ed with.
87.174.254.239: Asking for money.
87.174.254.239: You lowlife miserable f**k.
No Muie: I have not, as you suggest, blackmailed anyone.
87.174.254.239: Really?
87.174.254.239: This is no_muie again. I was thinking that your last payment was not enough. I need more money in order to continue fighting crime. People like you, in construction business, should pay us crime fighters because we work day and night to make the web a safer place for everybody. I need 1000 pounds now. If you morons don't pay, the negative reviews of your website will be up again and this will means the end of your business. By the way, click on one of the ads if you access my blog and don't try to report me, I will know.
87.174.254.239: ;)
No Muie: Thats funny, who wrote that?
87.174.254.239: All your emails have been sent to Google (Blogspot).
87.174.254.239: Good luck.
No Muie: Thatnks for stopping by.
No Muie: oops thanks
87.174.254.239: Expect your blog to be deleted in a bit.

So I decided to go to the link and see what the chatter was about.
Here is what the scammer posted on the site:

http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/226969-we-have-problem-harassment-blog.html

The scammer stareounut :
We have a problem with harassment from a blog

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We have a website for roof repairs and construction work. There is a guy out there, that has a blog, netscammers.blogspot, who is claiming to catch scammers and fraudsters. One day, like 4 people told us they have found os online but they think that we are scammers. when we searched the address of our website on google, first result was a posting from this guy stating that we are scammers. We contacted this person, called no_muie, and he said that we need to pay him in order to get removed. He asked for 300 pounds. We paid and he removed us. All the bad results disappeared from google. Now, he is back. He asks for more money from us, or else. We are desperate, we don't know what to do. We have many customers and companies that we work with, what if this guy comes back with the postings. We don't want to pay him more money, he will just keep on asking if we just pay. Please, help us, we can pay you to help us get rid of this troll. contact us . Thank you very much.

The scammer even posted a link to what is supposedly an email exchange I had with him demanding money:
http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/8602/nomuie.jpg

The worst aspect to this story is the fact that the people who are on this forum posted tips for the scammer to report me, my blog and my Twitter account.
Some users posted things about spamming my email and using methods to have my blog taken down.
I'm thankful that a couple of people warned me about what was happening.
As for the rest, I can't believe they fell for the scammers fake story.
...and I bet the scammer is having a good laugh.....

Now the scammer has started a discussion here:
http://www.topix.com/forum/news/topix/TU71R6AJS0QR7HV59

Notice all the posters are listed as being from Reston, Va??
This indicates the scammer is replying to his own thread using multiple accounts and AOL as a proxy.
