So Last year Me, my bro, and a couple of my buddies split the buy in to a big money league (300$) run by this guy on sportsline. We had never met the dude, but we looked and saw that he had run 10+ leagues each year, talked to him on the phone, and seemed like a reliable, good hearted guy.
Well anyways, We ended up winning the league. He wa splanning on keeping this league running for a long period of time with the same core of owners.(redraft) well when the year was over, i guess he took some of the criticisms/complaints we made about the league personally, and ended up booting us out of the league.
We have Email Adresses and AIM Screen names of most of the other members of the league. So the Commish E-Mailed us saying that the payment was being sent by PayPal,a dn that we should be getting it any time.
Well, the Payment didnt come. We emailed him back saying that we never got the $$, and that if he could we would like to see a receipt of the payment he made via paypal. he made some type of excuse up claiming he couldnt get the proof of it. So we emailed/IM some league members telling them that we didnt get our money, and the commish counteracted by telling the league members that he sent the money out, and that we were just trying to couse trouble, etc... b/c we got kicked out of the league.
After some time had passed, we recieved some emails/IMs saying that this dude was failing to pay out the $$ in mulitple of his other leagues.
So Obviously this guy is getting away with stealing money.
We are caught in a bind and dont know what to do... does anyone have some help to offer or the legal ramifications of a problem such as this??
any help would be much appreciated
The Future is here
