Just make the report.
If he is verified, very easy for police to find him.

In 2017, I did preorders on carou and got GPUs cheap at around 400 and flip for under 600 lol. I used some to mine ethereum. Made good profits.

But these days, different.

Will be funny if you report to police & nothing happened to him

Anyway pre orders is a joke
Some sellers just post advert and say pre order.
So basically no capital laid out by him and he just wait for people to pass him money

I doubt if problems occur like orders damaged etc, he'll do anything.
So why bother
