How can Dropbox links be disabled? I was scammed by another user.

Explorer | Level 3

PLEASE READ IMMEDIATELY!
I recently listed my hair online to sell. I was then scammed by a complete creeper and he used Dropbox to do it. He used it to send pictures of peoples hair he had previously purchased as proof he was legit. He offered me $6,000 to cut my hair and send it to him. He then showed me all these files he has on Dropbox of all these other woman who have sold him their hair.
Pictures of receipts too with their drivers licenses in them...
It’s all a scam and he (AFTER I CUT MY HAIR) disabled all the links to every Dropbox proof he showed me. I have screenshots of some but not all of the Dropbox links he sent. PLEASE REMOVE THIS USER AND DO NOT ALLOW HIM TO FURTHER SCAM OTHER INNOCENT DROPBOX USERS OUT OF THEIR HAIR!! Reach out to me for whatever you need.

Hey there @TalithaKosy, I'm sorry to hear about the situation!

 

In this case, I can suggest reporting this as abuse with the steps outlined here.

 

You could use the linked form, choose "other" and add in the shared links that you mentioned along with any other relevant info you have.

 

Sorry that I can't be of much more help than that, but please let me know if you have any questions.

 

I hope you have a great start to your week!
