Vitalijs Blazevics This man started working the same day i started, i meet him even before i started working at Fleda hostel in Brno. He looked like a regular guy and i made the mistake of befriend him. We even were in the same clases the first week, so what could possible go wrong?
A lot. Turns out after i lend him some money to pay the next month rent, he dissapeared with even more money when he was supposed to pay me back, when he got his paycheck. So a week before the payday he didn't go back to work, this was barely 1 month after starting at IBM. I send a email to their superiors to ask about his whereabouts but to no avail, i tried various times with HHRR and it wasn't until he didn't return the laptop that they started firing him...
Now i remember he told me he worked for a gambling company in gibraltar, so he is most likely a professional scammer. Don't let him entertain you with stories about losing his money on London and traveling all of Europe by hitchhiking .
Update: only 2 webpages i found about him on the net: a job page and a page in czech? .
there we can check his last know mobile and mail.
I was introduced via friends and told he was waiting for his first salary - This is my report to couchsurfers:-

OK brief background I am British and work for IBM in BRNO CZ I have hosted
a couple of times
I live 2 streets away from FLEDA hostel in Brno - I previously lived there
for 5 months so know the bar staff and customers alike.
I met Vitaly while he was staying there(Fleda) (it is a hostel
+bar+nightclub+concert hall) via some other friends. At that time he was
also working at IBM
He started to stay with me to save Hostel fees while he was waiting for his
first salary. He seemed like a nice chap.
He did not like ibm so resigned - which I thought was a bit rash - but he
was confident to get another job (he is very qualified)
I wanted to upgrade replace my computer but I am a mainframe spécialist not
desktop - so he said he would order and assemble parts to build a desktop.
So he got about 550 Euros from me. In the meantime he got a job offer in
Athens and within days was gone.
When I went to the computer place he had not paid a penny - just complétéd
Must say it has put me off hosting for the time being.
