1  Economy / Trading Discussion / Anyone booked profit when btc touched $ 400 ? on: November 06, 2015, 08:05:55 PM
Is there anyone who has booked the profit by selling the btc when the price was around $400 ? I have some coins but missed the opportunity and the prices are down again. I was hoping that the price will go beyond $500 but unfortunately it crashed.

4  Economy / Scam Accusations / Guy asks me to send 7 Bitcoins first- trying to deploy scam tactics,users Beware on: July 29, 2015, 03:30:40 PM
This guy and me are going back and forth for a long time about buying amazon gift cards, he has agreed to sell me 5,300$ worth of amazon gift cards,
but he does not insist to use escrow, wants me to send first, just saw that his Localbitcoins account is also staff banned as he had pulled exit scam, now i chatted with him for so many hours asking him to accept escrow of default trust members, so that trade will be safe but he insists no escrow is required and asks me to send btc first, i have dealt with so many people like him before and he has a green trust also, most likely a bought account, which he can trick people to scam them out of Bitcoins. So community be warned.

He agreed for LBC escrow from his most likely bought account and then backed out saying the LBC fees are high, a scam tactic.

He doesn't deserve the green trust which most likely it is a bought account and can  use to scam others saying he has more trust etc.

5  Economy / Scam Accusations / Who are some of the biggest scam artists in bitcointalk? on: July 24, 2015, 02:39:13 PM
I would like to know about them to educate myself and as well as the readers of thread to be aware of various forms of scams and stay clear of them,

to start with, i heard of a guy named Pirateat40  who was a ponzi owner

from Bitcoin wiki page

Pirateat40 (called Pirate) , Trendon Shavers,  was the operator of the largest scam in bitcoin history: he operated a ponzi scheme which initially promised a guaranteed a daily profit of 1%, and then disappeared with an unknown amount of bitcoins in August 2012. Thoughts were that the amount was about 500,000 bitcoins, valued around US $5 million at the time. These amounts were soon quashed once investigators realized a large hoard of coins found in their analysis did not belong to Pirate, but instead to a black market website with which Pirate used to mix his funds to hide the actual amounts he had held/stolen.

SEC (The U.S Securities and Exchange Commission) charged Trendon Shavers with defrauding investors in a Ponzi scheme.




If you can get different guys name and brief detail of scam, we can understand the evolution of scams in the forum and will educate people to not fall for such scams or trust them with their money.
