Better go back to Franklin Delano Roosevelt if we're talking presidents who - knowingly or unknowingly - doomed us to the financial enslavement of wild, free money printing.  He's the one who took America off of the gold standard.

Wow.  A ton of 5-BTC Cas peeled.   Really hoping someone didn't get robbed.  Don't understand why they wouldn't have sold them at approx 7 BTC each instead of selling.  I guess it's a hassle and the market isn't that liquid, but that is about $700,000 potentially left on the table.

I honestly thought the thread was over on Saturday and auction was over with OP being decided not to sell?  Sorry.

I did tell you that, and it did happen.

Hi, I was the auction winner. I don’t think “scam” is quite the right word here but given the repost on eBay and the suspicions all around I think if everyone is okay with it, we simply void the auction and start over.  However, if that would result in me or the seller getting flagged and never being able to buy/sell on this forum again, then I am willing to buy at the agreed upon price of 1.07 and then go through a careful escrow process to complete the transaction.

Sorry for the fuss on this auction.

What would you take for two each of all 4 colors (so 8 total stamps)?
94  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Thread re opened due to buyer accusing me of shipping an empty package. on: April 27, 2017, 09:24:47 PM
Come on guys - it was not an attempted scam.  I didn't notice the weight on the package.  I am not trying to perpetrate some scam for $200 bucks.   Seller didn't notice the weight in the picture for hours either. 

And let me ask you: if you buy something using bitcoin and you get an empty envelope, which do YOU think was more likely - that the seller jobbed you or that the package was mysteriously stolen.  I certainly would think it's the seller.  Turned out I was wrong.

I'll accept stupid, but not scammer. 
95  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Thread re opened due to buyer accusing me of shipping an empty package. on: April 27, 2017, 09:04:27 PM
Please post the image of the receipt with the weight, or message it to me directly if it shows personal address, etc.  If it's legit then I will drop my complaint.  I am not lying about the envelope being sealed and empty, but if I see a receipt showing that there was an actual weighted item shipped to me, then I will have to be satisfied that someone swiped the item along the way.

I'm getting bored of this shit now. It's nearly midnight here.... I'll give you a clue... look at the pictures you PM,d me

There is one that I had to remove from this thread......



Shipping weight was 0.25kg which works out to 8.8oz shipping weight, the image was still cached on my system from when I saw the label issue.

You're right, it does say that....  I guess if that is accurate then it must have weighed that much when shipped....

I feel pretty stupid for not having realized that it would say the weight on there.  I don't see a way for that to have been faked so...

The envelope was empty and sealed when, and yet weighed over 1/2 pound when shipped.  Conclusion: someone stole it somewhere along the way and resealed it after.

My apologies, TMAN.  You acted in a good faith.  You did nothing wrong. 

Sorry also for the thread and the time spent analyzing.  Sad

So everyone is believing that TMAN just happens to emigrating and his computer is in storage right now? 

I don't know what else to say.   He's got the BTC and I've got no Kialara.  I guess I am screwed.

I accept responsibility for not having surged into action the instant I realized I had been shipped an empty worthless envelope, but I doubt it would have mattered.

I guess all's fair in the wild, wild Bitcoin west.

If insurance was paid for file a claim with the shipper and let them sort it out.

I can't as it is 2 weeks after it was signed for. TNT will laugh at me.. especially as the package was not signed for as damaged or open or empty.. really who would open a Jiffy bag that feels empty when you are expecting a metal bar??? Even more so why wait 2 weeks??

In PM he mentions traveling yet above no mention of that being the cause of the delay

I don't understand this. Are you saying TNT erases its records after 13 days?  That sound pretty far fetched to me.

I live in an apartment complex and the package was received by the apartment manager.  By the time I had it in hand, the delivery company was long gone.  I was handed this package.

Travel was part of the personal business - what of it?  It's not "inconsistent" it's simply fleshing out what I messaged the seller directly.  Do you immediately tell of your personal backstory in every circumstance?  As the issue has escalated to a broader audience, I chose to frame it differently.

TMAN, in answer to why you would do this over such a petty sum, I honestly don't know. Again, all I know is that when I got the envelope it was sealed and yet empty. 

I am wondering why if it was insured it didn't come to me personally - why was a third-party (my apartment manager) allowed to sign for it?  I paid for insurance with the shipping so isn't the onus on you to send it to me with directions that it actually be received and signed by me?

I am the buyer in this situation.  

I sent the bitcoin for the Kialara after some positive exchanges with TMAN regarding this and other pieces.  He has a good trust score and was very responsive and I got a good vibe, and so I (lazily perhaps) opted to just send him the BTC for the item when I won, with no escrow.

All seemed to be going well and he provided a tracking number, and I paid to have it insured.

When I got the package, it was obviously empty AND SEALED.   Seller is saying that it is "sliced open" but it was not.  Maybe he's seeing some sort of fold in the tape from the picture, but it was literally just a sealed, empty envelope.

As soon as I picked it up my immediate thought was "dammit, I should have escrowed."  

Second thought:  "I know I got a real steal of a price on that auction, I guess he wasn't inclined to part with it for such a low price."

Third thought was:  "how can I ever "prove" that in fact it was an empty envelope when he first sent it?  When I contact the seller, he'll just say that it was stolen by some unknown person somewhere along the line.   He'll have proof that he sent the envelope and it will be his word against mine as to whether the item was ever actually in there or not.  He cleverly did this in a way that makes it almost impossible for me to get my BTC back."

Frankly, I despaired and figured I was just out the BTC, caveat emptor.  It wasn't a ton of money so I wasn't devastated, and my inclination was to just learn my lesson and move on.   I was also very busy with personal life issues, so I put it on the backburner  

As I kept thinking about it, I figured it was at least worth reaching out TMAN to ask why he would feel the need to stiff me.   So I messaged him yesterday about it.

He denied it and asked for pictures, which I sent.  He claimed that the pictures show that the envelope was sliced, but it was not.  It was a sealed envelope.  Unless someone was thoughtful enough to re-tape it shut after robbing it, the item just wasn't in there in the first place.

I will say that I am heartened that the seller volunteered to reopen this thread and basically throw this out to the community for judgement.  That shows a certain amount of good-will and I am hopeful that he will make this right.  

All I know is that I sent the BTC for the Kialara and received an empty, sealed envelope in return.  Just because I delayed in messaging him about it and didn't immediately start rampaging and complaining and down-voting him doesn't change that fact.  Also, just because I have been quiet on the forum for three years doesn't make me a liar either.  I got burned hard on the Activeminer scam and lost a small fortune, so I haven't been on here much at all since then.

Thank you
