"WorldPeace" is Scum, Tried to Extort me via DoS

by OHYEAH on July 17th, 2015

Disclaimer: I am not blaming betcoin for this issue.

I'm making this post to raise awareness that this kind of thing can happen and how it can be avoided. I also want to make sure as many people as possible know what a piece of shit worldpeace is, and hope to see his account banned.

Yesterday during my session my internet suddently just stopped working. After a minute or two of resetting network adapters and stuff, I rebooted the router and it came back.

At the time I was in 2 $20 sattys, the $55 5k and the $33 10k as well as some cash games.

At my 10k table, "toworldpeace" came into chat and said something like "you want another 5 min twitchy? Check skype"

I had a new request, from "Leon" (worldpeace) Here is complete convo I had with him before realizing it was happening through skype and shutting it down. (I dont know what the removed message said)

This message has been removed.
[7/16/2015 7:06:13 PM] *** leon would like to add you on Skype

Hi twitchyseal, I'd like to add you as a contact. ***
[7/16/2015 7:09:21 PM] *** twitchyseal has shared contact details with leon. ***
[7/16/2015 7:09:23 PM] twitchyseal: hi
[7/16/2015 7:09:35 PM] leon: I was ddosing u for 5mins
[7/16/2015 7:09:37 PM] twitchyseal: what was that
[7/16/2015 7:09:37 PM] leon: i can ddose u
[7/16/2015 7:09:48 PM] twitchyseal: why
[7/16/2015 7:09:57 PM] twitchyseal: so I lose satty
[7/16/2015 7:10:04 PM] leon: earlier i sent u 5mins dc
[7/16/2015 7:10:11 PM] leon: booting ur router
[7/16/2015 7:10:16 PM] leon: next time will be longer
[7/16/2015 7:10:25 PM] twitchyseal: why
[7/16/2015 7:10:30 PM] leon: cause im mad
[7/16/2015 7:10:33 PM] leon: u knock me out
[7/16/2015 7:10:38 PM] leon: of tourney yesterday
[7/16/2015 7:10:42 PM] leon: i demand a fucking refund
[7/16/2015 7:10:44 PM] leon: and i will stop
[7/16/2015 7:11:34 PM] *** twitchyseal blocked leon ***

At this point he started threating me at my tables, telling me to get back on skype or else, promising to dos me even longer. He eventually told me in chat to send him $20, and asking how i could be so stupid he was going to cost me so much more etc... There's absolutely no way I'd send this guy $1, even if it cost me hundreds or more. So I ignored him/told him to ead a few times.

This went on for 45 min - an hour. I was constantly restarting computer, router, attempting to release my ip, attempting to gooogle wtf to do and talk to friends. Eventually I figured out how to stop him.

I'm not going to spell out exactly what I did, but it just takes a quick "skype ddos protection" to figure out what you might not be doing already.

Also, if you're friends with worldpeace on skype, and aren't an expert on this kinda thing BLOCK HIM NOW

I was only able to manage a few screen shots of the chat due to the constant restarting and force closing everything, but here they are.

I sent betcoin support everything I had last night, and will be making sure WPNTD know exactly what happened and what account(s) are responsible.

I'm not blaming anyone but myself for letting it happen.

Just pointing out that when this happened months, absolutely nothing was done to prevent it from happening again (other than making him post an lol apology)

The day after this thread was made he won the daily coin, got congratulated by plo8 in the forum and cashed out no problem.

plo8monster: I was not aware of this
Thu, 10/08/2015 - 18:58

Unfortunately i wasnt aware of this when i congratulated him (im just a congratulations kinda guy, sorry)

Due to the new issue and thread, i just now am seeing this.
I hate it that this is even possible. If as a site, If we can implement anything to help, well then you can count on that. It seems to have become a problem and Andrew is researching it. I spoke with him this morning about it.
Meanwhile, we as a community do all we can to keep each other informed and offer solutions like the newer thread has https://www.betcoin.ag/urgent-player-name-mustalainen-attacking-site-and...

I am truly sorry this is happening, it is such low character.
there will always be cheats in poker, Betcoin will do it best to protect you and you guys do please, follow the advise in the thread, regarding skype.

(thank you Oh Yeah ...you are a great member of the .ag, I know i personally appreciate you, and the information you post to help players, it does not go unnoticed)
