Import private key: No transaction is generated.  All the coins are still in that address, but now you can manage them through Electrum.

Sweep private key: A transaction is created that sweeps all the currency from the key(s) into an address in your current wallet.

Like TryNinja said; If you have a wallet backed up by a seed phrase, and then import a key, that key is not backed up by the seed phrase.  The currency on those imported keys is not backed up by your seed phrase.  If you ever needed to restore your wallet from seed, you would have to import the key again to access it's contents.  If you sweep the key all the coins are moved to your current wallet, and therefor backed up by the seed.

4  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: What is Sweep in Electrum wallet? on: November 14, 2019, 03:43:40 PM
It allows you to input private keys from another wallet and create a transaction to "sweep" all the bitcoin from those keys, and send them to your current wallet.

6  Economy / Services / Re: [FREE ESCROW] DireWolfM14ís Escrow Service [FREE ESCROW] on: November 14, 2019, 12:10:19 AM
I'm not trying to create an illusion of safety, especially for the guy accepting PayPal.  Any one who's is ought to know the risks, and won't fail to remind them of the risks.  But I do think I can prevent a situation like this from happening.

That person would still be just a chargeback (or a doctored PDF) away from being fucked.

Here's the flipside:

A seasoned scammer (SS) posts: "I buy BTC and I pay with PayPal."
An apprehensive newbie (AN) says: "PayPal is reversible! Unsafe!"
SS: "But look, DireWolf provides escrow for it and he has an M14 so you know it's super safe."
AN: "Ah ok, I've heard that escrow makes everything safe, let's do it."

I think this may facilitate transactions that wouldn't otherwise happen, or larger/riskier transactions than prudent. PayPal scammers will start using you as a prop in their schemes even if they don't actually use your services.

take on that roll

ahem...

Edit: BTW the seller can scam too. Let's say they receive PayPal funds but claim they didn't. What would you do then?

Great, convincing arguments.

I will provide my service for currency exchanges, but I will not act as a middle man for PayPal or any other fiat-based payment service providers.  Anyone selling cryptocurrency for fiat payments through a provider like PayPal will have to receive the payment directly, and assume all risk of charge-backs.  I will not be held accountable for buyers who charge-back fiat payments.  Buyers who pay for trades using PayPal and similar fiat-based service providers will be asked to provide a PDF print-out of their transaction page, screen shots will not be accepted.

How is a PDF any better than a screenshot? I think you should just say "no" to PayPal and other reversible transactions. There is no way to make them safer and you might inadvertently create an illusion of safety.

A PDF print-out of the page will include the whole page, not just the part that's visible on the user's screen.  It's just an effort to get the all the pertinent information.

I'm not trying to create an illusion of safety, especially for the guy accepting PayPal.  Any one who does accept PayPal ought to know the risks, and I won't fail to remind them of the risks.  But I do think I can prevent a situation like this from happening.

8  Economy / Services / [FREE ESCROW] DireWolfM14ís Escrow Service [FREE ESCROW] on: November 13, 2019, 10:06:36 PM
    DireWolfM14ís Escrow Service    




To help support Bitcoin, the forum, the community, and in an effort to prevent scams I want to provide Escrow services free of charge.  I have no experience providing escrow services, so this will be my first foray.



Why should you trust me?
You shouldnít.  Iím just a semi-anonymous figure on the internet, but Iím far less likely to scam you than that newbie from whom youíre about to buy BloodBath&Beyond gift-cards.  I love this forum, I value my integrity and reputation more than money, and I would never do anything to hurt others.  Put all that together and you may allow me to help you trade safely.



Why am I offering my service for free?
I donít want to work for free, but I will if it keeps just one person from being scammed.  I want to help bring bitcoin to the mainstream, I want the forum to feel like a safe place for traders, sellers, and buyers, and I want to thwart scammers before they have a chance.  My service is free, so thereís no reason not to use an escrow provider, thereís no excuse to get scammed.  It may cost you a little extra time to coordinate the deal, but I wonít charge you a dime.



What services do I offer for free?
Any trade between two individuals.  Physical or digital goods, currency exchanges, whatever you can think of thatís legal.  The more I know about what youíre trading the safer you will be (in case arbitration is needed,) but I donít really need to know what youíre trading.  I will not provide escrow services for Bitcointalk.org account sales.

Currency exchanges involving reversible, fiat-based payment services like (but not limited to,) PayPal will not be accepted due the high risk of charge-backs.

Escrow services for advertising campaigns, bounties, games and rounds, and other businesses are available for a nominal fee.



How it works:
The two parties come to an agreement on price, delivery, inspection period, and any other logistics that may relate to the trade.  Once the particulars are settled, I am contacted by PM with both parties included in a group discussion.  I will provide a unique address or addresses for your trade.  All addresses will be signed with my PGP key.

Once I share the address(es) with the party the buyer will send the payment.  The buyer will then share the transaction ID with the me and the seller.  Once the payment has been made the seller will deliver the item.  Any information relative to delivery (i.e. tracking numbers) will be shared.  Once the buyer has received and inspected the item, the payment will be forwarded to the seller.

Transaction fees will be deducted from the amount sent to the final recipient.  I will not be accountable for transaction fees.  Transactions will be sent with minimal fees, unless I am instructed otherwise.



Communications:
All communication must be established here on the forum.  Communication for trades may be held here in this thread, or through private messages.  I will not communicate with anyone regarding escrow services outside the forum, unless previously agreed upon.  If members are unable to communicate effectively due to PM restrictions, we may move the discussion to a third party app, such as Keybase or Telegram, but not until it has been agreed upon here on the forum.

I will never contact you to solicit my services.  If some one approaches you claiming to be me and offering escrow services, they are trying to scam you.  Be wary of impostors.  



Tips are accepted:
If you feel like Iíve helped you I wonít object to a contribution.

the 2 man are 1 and its you
if you know it before,whey you dont insert your telegram link in topic?
why you dont mention before about this problem?
why you type your username when you say there is another one?
im sure 2 account are 1 and its you
maybe inm neiwbe here (registered since 2013) but im pro member in most hack forums and i know all this trick well
you can unblock me and refund me and i forget it

I'm sorry you got scammed, I wish there was some way to help you fix your issue.  But, there's no way you can prove that Podgor is the same guy that scammed you.  Podgor did warn of scammers impersonating him on Telegram, I quoted one of those posts above.

As for the screenshots I posted; don't bother trusting them.  Search Telegram yourself.

This is probably the guy who blocked you:
Code:
amazonbaiance

Here's another impersonator:
Code:
amazonbalances

Here's Podgor:
Code:
amazonbalance
11  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: user " Podgor" scam for amazon wishlist and gift card on: November 13, 2019, 04:54:33 PM
I've never dealt with Podgor, I have no affiliation with him, I don't recall ever interacting with him on the forum, and I don't buy or sell gift cards.  In other words I have no dog in this fight.

I searched Telegram for user "AmazonBaiance" (note the search bar,) and here's what I found:




I also searched for user "AmazonBalance" and found another user that goes by the name "AmazonBalances" with the same front page as the one above:

12  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: user " Podgor" scam for amazon wishlist and gift card on: November 13, 2019, 04:05:41 PM
Podgor has posted that he is @AmazonBalance on Telegram.

Telegram @AmazonBalance
[Archive]


But I also found this:

(ALWAYS CHECK IF YOU ADDED THE PROPER LOGIN, I HAVE IMPERSONATORS USING MY LOGIN IN THEIR NAMES)
Telegram & ICQ: AmazonBalance (I have an impersonator using "i" instead of "L" BE CAREFUL)
[Archive]

Are you sure you were dealing with the same guy?  It's hard to tell from the screenshots.

Freedom of speech is not only worth a high cost, as eddie13 has said, it also pays dividends.  If wasn't for the freedom of speech that trolls enjoy, it would be harder to identify what despicable people they are.

If you're talking about some one who may be blackmailing a member to remove support for a scam-flag, he'll get his in the end.  It's no secret what happened, and it's only a matter of time before his actions are exposed.

They are still not paying the three of us. I am also waiting for them to log in.

Have you tried sending the OP a private message?  Who are the other two participants that haven't been paid?

This thread was a mess from the get go.  The OP was multi-posting and had a few posts deleted.  There was no particular order or coherent policy for selecting participants.
15  Economy / Lending / Re: $75k - $100k BITCOIN LOAN on: November 12, 2019, 11:16:40 PM
No need to be jealous. I have higher expenses than middle class people (£3,500 mortgage in london monthly + monthly council tax), £800 monthly car loan, and I was hoping to bring my wife and children to a nice place this christmas. The $25,000 are money that satisfy what poor people see as "greedy needs". It's money that I am totally sure I will repay back only that would be helpful in this christmas period because it helps me. If I don't get it it's fine because I will survive without spending too much. Just that I wanted  to go out for christmas somewhere else like in new york and enjoy my christmas and probably new year. This is what we all like, enjoying our life right? Or do you guys try to convince yourself people should not spend money?  Kiss

Must be nice to live such a lavish lifestyle on some one else's dime.  Maybe you need to stop pretending your so rich and live within your means.  You may even be able to save enough to keep your business afloat, and possibly retire some day.  Just a thought.
16  Economy / Services / Re: [FULL] ChipMixer Signature Campaign | Sr Member+ | Up to 0.0375 BTC/w on: November 12, 2019, 08:46:45 PM
I guess my point is that the whole "not necessarily against the forums rules, but frowned upon"-type tagging can, in my opinion, be a bit harsh at times...

Technically speaking, scamming people isn't against the (non-existent) "forum rules" either, but I doubt DarkStar_ would allow a proven scammer to remain on this campaign, even if he still had more positive than negative reviews.


especially when some members operate what is effectively a "zero tolerance with no chance of appeal" approach to trust. Undecided

I'm not one of those who red-tagged bill gator's account, but I do count myself as one of those who have a zero-tolerance policy for account sales.  It's a fraud from the word "go."  Having said that, I really felt bad for bill when he was removed from this campaign.  I think it was the right move for the health of the campaign, advertisers need to be trusted to be effective.
17  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Zerbis is a Scammer on: November 12, 2019, 06:51:51 PM
@OP, I'm sorry for your loss.  You should create a flag as well, here's the link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;addflag=949547

Zerbis sent me a PM on the 9th asking for a 0.025BTC loan.  When I rejected his request for a no-collateral loan he offered some shitcoin as collateral.  His trade history made me consider it, although briefly.  I rejected his request due to his activity, and the only exchange that has buy orders for that shitcoin is Yobit.

Due to his lack of recent activity and the amount he was asking for, I felt there was a strong possibility he was gearing up for an exit scam.  I hope I'm wrong, and he'll be back to compensate you for your loss.

Kinky.

If you have property you're better off going to a bank.  Most lenders here aren't in Brazil, so going to go through all the procedures and expenses of securing your property for a loan is impractical.  
19  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Re: Ordered Ledger Backup Pack - Nano X + Nano S on: November 12, 2019, 05:30:16 PM
Most people lost their money because their devices were shipped from resellers who included a pregenerated seed. You should be safe since you ordered the pack from their official account.

An easy way to check for that attack vector is to allow the wallet to generate a seed, write it down, reset the device, and go through the initialization steps again.  If the wallet generates the same seed twice it's a forgery, or has been tampered with to produce a specific seed to which a hacker has access.  A genuine wallet will never generate the same seed twice.
