robtex shows email@example.com (responsible for epcsoftware.com) as a contact addy, along with firstname.lastname@example.org (responsible for ombhost.com).
This bounced, so I tried 'abuse@ombhost', which has bounced as well.
I also used the 'abuse' addy for the following IPS.

After 10 days delay I received package by TNT.
Caterpillar program on 14 DVDs, but 7 of them vere scratched and I coudln't read them, he burnt the DVDs but even didn't check them.I can't use it.
I also received the old versions of Perkins , Deutz, Cummins ONAN and other software instead of new ones as it was advertised on the website and I haven't received serial numbers , keygens, etc...
I haven't received several pieces of software at all.
AFter that I asked for keygens. I sent dozens emails and at last he sent me 7 keygens, all of them need some files, or are protected with password and do not work.
In fact , I paid $750.00 and received nothing and he doesn't reply to my emails. It looks , as he is just laughing at us. I don't understand , it he has this software and keygens, why does he do this.
I can't beleive that this person just steals customer's money and we can't stop him.
Here is the full address of his company, it was printed on TNT envelope
ARAS KARGO TASIMACILIK AS.
Ziya Gokalp mh ataturk bulvar

@alex2k, welcome to AFI! Sorry to hear of your misfortune. Hold onto everything you have with this transaction (receipts, emails, etc.). It can be used as proof of this scammer's activities. But since you paid via Western Union, there's little chance you'll get a refund. Keep in mind that keygens are warez that are used to circumvent the software's protection and are therefore illegal.
Being that, we will attempt to put this criminal out of business, but it won't be easy. The site is hosted in Turkey on sgstelecom.com, so this is going to be a tough one to take down (but not impossible). His web site might already be under DDOS attacks, because it is extremely slow to come up at this moment. I do not recommend having the site taken down at this time. The companies, whose software is being compromised on the site, need to see for themselves what is going on.
Next step is to report all the illegal software to the vendors listed on the web site. I am currently taking snapshots of the web site for proof, in case it goes down. Because of all the vendors involved, this is going to take some time. Hopefully, I can get some help with this task.
I'm having a bit of a tough time trying to find links for Turkish LEA. Does anyone here have that info?
Interpol also might find the web site interesting.
Thank you for your promt reply.
Unfortunatelly, I don't have the receipt, I already threw it out but I have all the emails and the TNT package. And I have all his advertisement emails, saved.
I already realized that I lost my money and almost don't have a chance for a refund, but we have to punish him and close his website.
If you need any kind of my support or need any details, please contact me.
This may be hard.
Turkey signed the Cybercrime Convention on the 10th of November 2010, but I am unable to find a section that handles this.
The closest I can find so far, would be that the Police and the Gendarmarie each have a department that perform duties relevant to the collection and analysis of intelligence and countering criminal acts. Emniyet İstihbarat Daire is the Police force's intelligence wing, second one is Intelligence Department of Gendarmerie General Command.
Whether they have set up a "cybercrime" section is unknown.
I can't understand why you included our website to this thread? We are not selling any keygens or other illegal software. Actual link is to software that is developed for special needs of workshops. For me it looks like you try to make some problems for your business competitors in such dirty way. It's sad that there are such people who are unfamiliar with business ethics.
Defrauding people on the internet--- that's how you got here in the first place. Selling things to people, taking their money and then not delivering the product--that's called fraud. The keygen issue was later.
