Title: Selling the rest of my btc stash!
Post by: Citiz3n on May 26, 2011, 01:16:04 PM
Hey all, been a miner for a while, never traded much through the forums, more on mt gox but i am selling the rest of my bitcoins for paypal.
I have 48 bitcoins remaining in my account and will take any amount around the current mt gox price. I'm happy to sell as many or as little
as you'd like and would like a fast easy transaction. I have a good rating on bitcoin-otc look me up :)
Pm me if you are interested in doing business.

You should diversify it sounds like :) I can give you 10 silver American Eagles, delivered, for 48 BTC. That works out to under $5 over spot each, plus free shipping. I can also do a 10oz silver bar + 1 silver eagle if you prefer. This is well below what you'd pay at Apmex or a coin shop.

Let me know, I've got an eBay account I can message you from for rep, and we can do ClearCoin on it if you can confirm your rep.

He's the one taking the risk here; you can always get your money back (with varying amounts of trouble) if he doesn't deliver.

But what if he will use the ClearCoin service? :)

If he doesn't release the coins in a reasonable amount of time, revoke the payment.  He'll be stuck waiting until the escrow clears up and you'll have your money back.

SCAMMER! I sent him $30 and he refused to send the bitcoins, do not trade with him!

Post by: mrh235 on May 27, 2011, 03:54:34 AM
i paid him as well and he stopped responding as soon as he got the cash. supposedly it didnt "clear," but usually when i send people payments via paypal it clears instantly

this user seems to also be impersonating a user called "citiz3n" on another site who is legit. (this is the legit one's page:

paypal wont do a thing, ive dealt with them before like this, its impossible to get money back
unless you paid with a credit card.

Not your fault, he was pretty convincing, and with credit card you can contact your credit company and issue a chargeback

Post by: acamus on May 27, 2011, 05:18:50 AM
na i didn't, first post really made me suspect something fishy so i told him to go over to otc but he wouldn't. Then, i posted the hash of his paypal email this made me really suspicious:

" im happy to go without clearcoin if you want to? you seem trustworthy enough. but if you really want to, ok.
My paypal is the-miner@hotmail.com "

Isn't the miner that other scammer?


Title: Re: Selling the rest of my btc stash!
Post by: dharper on May 27, 2011, 07:28:34 AM
Ffs.. got me too, apparently. I'll be issuing chargebacks with PayPal and my bank.

For future reference:

  and
  Use an escrow (ClearCoin)

Ohh...
So the-miner and citiz3n turned out to be scammers.
Phew! I was smelling something fishy... and guess I was right.

I was in negotiations with both of these guys.

"never traded much through the forums" and 1 post should have been a give away. Why a tiny lie? I don't know.


Title: Re: Selling the rest of my btc stash!
Post by: Eric on May 27, 2011, 11:52:43 AM
