Sefa Gol, the man who ran Odeonweb.com, has resurfaced running the website sellgamesonline.com and apparently owning a store called Action Toys in the Longview, TX mall. I have compiled some information about him for the people who were ripped off by his hosting operation. Here's the proof:
1. Two websites showing the Stafford, TX business address for Odeonweb:
2. Harris County tax information showing Sefa Gol as the owner of the aforementioned Stafford apartment:
3. Whois information for sellgamesonline.com showing 'email@example.com' as the administrative contact:
Note the Longview, TX SBC DSL IP address
5. I called his business and Sefa himself, going by his middle name 'Emre', admitted that he was the Sefa Gol from Odeonweb.
6. Here's Sefa showing his penchant for covert advertising by posing as a 20-year-old and subtly plugging his new site mere days after it was created:
Here are several threads from these forums regarding Odeonweb and their penchant for thievery:
The last one identifies Odeonweb's Paypal account as belonging to Sefa Gol.
Finally, here is where you can contact Sefa and ask him questions regarding where your money is and/or how completely legitimate his current operation is:
