The short story goes like this: Adam was finally arrested on April 2nd, thanks to two amazingly brave women. The women work for a company in nyc that had been scammed by Adam as well. When he would not return their goods, they googled his name and found my original blog post about the scam, and immediately took it upon themselves to go to his apartment and demand their stuff back. And because they had seen the photo of my necklace on my blog, they were able to retrieve it that same day along with their own goods! (hooray for blogging making a difference eh?!)
I'm grateful to these women for their bravery, and grateful to the DA's office for jumping on the case and prosecuting this scumbag so quickly. I am thankful the ordeal is over with, that he's getting what he deserves, and frankly am amazed that the necklace is coming back to me. It's not in my possession just yet however - the lawyers have to hang on to it a bit longer as evidence, but it feels good to know that it's safe and will be returned to me soon.
Thankfully now I can focus on my life and my work again, learn from the experience and move forward.
Thanks for reading!
*NOTE*Adam was released on bail last week and is now apparently reading my blog. He left some nasty comments which I've reported and removed from this posting.
