Title: Scammed out of $70 btc by : virtual_giftcards
Post by: DopeKid313 on March 25, 2016, 02:47:57 PM

Here's his thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1401270.msg14308659#msg14308659
Here's his profile link : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=805206

So I casually added him on Skype.. I don't really have much to say but screenshots will do

So when I tried posting on his thread I guess he has the power to delete posts? I honestly don't understand that he can delete posts on his own thread lmao...so there's no telling who is getting scammed by him...  I know I won't get my btc back but I at least wanna get him banned

Every last post made over the last nine days by virtual_giftcards that has the skype virtual.cards11 contained in that day's post has been edited within the last half an hour from what I can tell.

Sir, you are no scammer. You legit. No kidding.

BUT... can you explain this (https://archive.is/Z8Ahe#selection-611.0-611.14)? It clearly stated that you posted "virtual.cards1" in your thread. You need a better excuse, IMO. Very fail, sir.

Edit:
LOL. suchmoon is faster than me. xD

Nice, you got him. Good job suchmoon!
Thank you for preventing this guy to escape what he deserves!

I hope next time the victim will not get scammed again by another user. Please use escrow to be safe, and know what u are doing.

Like thats a huge redflag lol.

Someone editing the thread after something is pointed it out is just a way of saying "fuck" someone saw my mistake.

Plus continues to hide it to do continue business.

Feel free to slap GC buyers around too... I mean - dealing on skype, sending first, and a 40% discount on an Amazon GC - how many red flags does one need.

Your correct but of course no one will go first with me especially because of my false rep I received awhile ago lol I just tried to be nice I've been scammed before you really have no idea how bad I needed agc that day too I was saving for a laptop lol so was trying to collect much as possible... Really appreciate that you helped though (: thank you man but he'll just buy an account with the btc so there's no point I've heard that this is one of the worse sites to exchange on (NO OFFENSE TO ANYONE AT ALL) because there's people like that guy who uses stupidity over smart me myself would never scam I don't like it being done too me so I wouldn't do it to anyone because people like me work and earn are money it just Isn't handed over for nothing so $70 is a big deal to me I don't have that much to just blow off I totally learned my lesson and next time I will use escrow or just use paxful like I usually do...

I didn't have time early this morning to post a note here that minutes after going off line an activity zero user started up in the digital goods section, I posted a comment, but didn't have tie to flag with feedback, now my post is gone, I can only presume that someone else spotted it and has had the user / thread removed?

If you are getting something that is too good to be true, you need to be extremely careful with each and every action, specially the "Send Money" button.

BTW, pretty clever & lame excuse of the mistake in Skype ID.

Not really, take a screen grab via archive.is or similar and then state "This is the Skype you said, here is the proof..." and there is no argument.  Adding a one and saying "Oh no, you've got it wrong!" is just wrong in itself.
