I needed some help with C++ computer programming. I went to www.tutorselect.com and put in my request for tutoring. Thomas Kielbasinski responded to my request and we agreed on $100 for 5 hours of tutoring. Thomas Kielbasinski was not able to make our first meeting as he had to visit someone in the hospital. The second day we set 2 PM PST / his 5 PM EST....I sent Thomas Kielbasinski a connectin to GoToMeeting via Skype and he refused to use it. He then blocked me on Skype.
I have his phone number, (((Redacted))) so I tried to call....he didn't answer.
I called again and my number had been blocked.
I used my home phone and again no answer follwed by blocking.
Since I had sent him the money through Google Wallet, I contacted them and they directed me to contact my bank.
I contacted my bank and we are in the process of creating a charge back for the money.
I looked for his name on the Internet and I find he has been doing this same scenario over and over.
From information on this site I contacted the police in Somerset, PA.
They know him and get reports like this about weekly. I assume a lot more of his scams go unreported.
He is likely doing a fairly good living as a scammer.
If you are scammed as well contact the Somerset Police Department at 814-445-4596.
Also, contact the District Attorney at 814-445-1458 and add your complaint to the stack.
If you are scammed on TutorSelect.com (he seems to do many tutor sites so make sure it is the same one) the number for them is 1-727-796-0847. The owner is Kenneth Smith at 2519 N McMullen Booth Road Suite 510-278; Clearwater, Florida 33761. I don't believe that Kenneth is part of the scam as the owner of the website so he should be interested in clearing out scammers using his site. I did put in a call and left a message but so far no response.
