I'm not sure if anyone here is following the bitcointalk thread but things have have taken a turn for the bizarre and Alpha have sunk to a new low.
I'll quickly summarise:
14th Nov about 12 AM a message is left on the answering machine of my home phone. Repeating my bitcointalk username over and over in a text- speak voice. The same night at about 1 AM another message is left, this time in the same voice the caller says my username then goes on to state my real name and address, my wife's name. He then says "you are not anonymous" and threatens to take action if I do not stop my "online harassment"
I only noticed the messages a week later as the line is pretty much unused in my office I deleted the first one as I thought it was a crank call then I heard the second and realised it was a bit more serious. I'm a big guy and not easily intimidated but decided to inform the police to get it on the record. They told me not to mention the calls on the forum as it would alert the perp that he had the right target, but to post as normal and see what developed.
Yesterday (27th) a well known Alpha shill Raj_Kapur joins btctalk and accuses me of scamming him out of $500 in btc which he claims to have paid me for filing a small claim for him against Alpha. He then proceeds to post my real name, home phone number, full home and email address, coincidently the same information contained in the threatening phone call. This is such a cack-handed and bungled job that they forget to remove Raj_Kapur's numerous posts here where he flat out attacks me and admits he didn't even buy a miner.
After calling him out and asking for proof of his allegations ie a btc addy, emails, pm's, or evidence he is even an Alpha customer Raj has just replied with more threats and accusations and hasn't provided a shred. I think it's safe to say this pathetic attempt to intimidate and lie has backfired. Now I have no reason to keep this quiet and can reveal just what a complete bunch of scumbags these idiots are.
I've uploaded a recording of the message here https://mega.co.nz/#!nI9mXL5C!HyhAFkySRVcsRr45BOpmPbHzuQDaJRoz8z7sduJZCiI
And this is the thread post of Raj_Kapur https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=314402.msg9667987#msg9667987
keep reading the subsequent pages for my response.
Its fair to say this has reached a new low, unfortunately for Alpha this stunt has elevated a nuisance call to criminal harassment and Surrey CID (Criminal Investigation Division) are now looking into it. Even dumber was the fact that I was pretty much done with Alpha and was concentrating my time on getting a KNC refund. Now I'm not going to rest until I put them in front of a judge.
These guys are truly pathetic and should have their own episode of worlds dumbest criminals. I'm not going to stop until they are exposed as the lying, cheating scum that they are.
