Sorry to hear your friend got ripped off. I hate people who pull a sorry trick like that.

Only other suggestion I can make is for your friend to have private conversations with officers from a few of the large kinships on your server. Kin names you see often. Use social panel search to find online count to guesstimate size. Be polite. Explain that you got ripped off by an individual and you just wanted to let some of the big kins know so that they could warn their members about him. Just a few private conversations is enough for word to get out.

If and when the lotteries return, save a copy of the lottery page listing all your characters and servers. It will age out of date over time, but it's still a list of servers, names, and classes for future reference.
