1  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: WorldWideBTC is a scam on: January 17, 2015, 04:14:16 PM
WorldwideBTC has scammed me for to Antminer S3's and PS3 that were supposed to be collateral on a loan. He had positive feedback at the time of my dealings with him. Now I'm noticing he's getting negative feedback and some accusations.  I have and address and an email that are only a few days old for him.  I'm also trying to reel him in with more collateral which every time you send him something it is now not enough and is wanting more.  But can not get him to answer.  But if I can get him to answer me I will be working with internet crimes burro to send him a little surprise.  But he calls himself Garrott Gardner. So watch out!   

I never received anything from you aside from a fake Rolex. Pro tip - if you want to pull a collateral scam, don't send a Rolex that clearly comes from Hong Kong.

I'd imagine what happened is that someone else stole the packages from outside of my door. Open hall and all that. Sorry for your loss.

Btw - if anyone wants the PMs between this guy and me, you can get a decent laugh out of his scam attempts. He gives sob stories which change after every PM - everything from health problems to family tragedies to whatever. He wanted a 3 BTC loan in exchange for a COUNTERFEIT Rolex watch. He had a "bill of sale" and everything. Supposedly worth $2,000. Yeah right.

Nice try, but no dice. The reality of the situation is that you will not get a loan for a fake rolex. You will not get a (at the time) $800 loan for two Antminer S3s. I understand you WANTED that to happen (So you could run with the loan funds), but now you know better.

You can't shit a shitter. You just learned that.

And that folks, is exactly what I needed.  Matches the account the funds were sent to, and I have all his comments and PM's saved and sent to wifes office. 

I will be contacting people from the old threads also that he was involved in.  The feds generally do not get involved in Wire Fraud cases like this until a threshhold is met (amt of money taken), because it is not really worth their time.  However, they protect their own.  Wrong person to fuck with I suppose.  Oopsie daisy smart guy.

Please message me if he scammed you in the past.  Any info or linked threads sent to me will help also.  I do not need your info, other than a way for the authorities to maybe reach you. 

He is probably broke, so we won't get the money back right away.  They will take his taxes every year after he gets done serving his time, or if he just gets Supervised Release (the Fed's version of probation).  However, scamming a member of the US Gov. family is sort of frowned on.  My wife's office recently had a man sentenced to 36 months for a wire fraud scam similar to this for an amount just under 5k, because the judge refused a plea as a victim happened to be in the US Gov as well.  Judge's discretion in sentencing is nice...they don't have to give a reason, so no appear wins in that regard as long as it falls in the guidlines.

None of that is going to happen. I'd imagine that someone accessed this forum account illegally and used this as an opportunity to slander my name. Oh well.

As you'll need evidence beyond ANY reasonable doubt that this happened, AND you'll have to prove that you received no bitcoins (And that I provided no service for you whatsoever, depending on what the bank payment was for).

You know what? I'm not even going to bother.

1: You can't find me.

2: I'm moving within two weeks.

3: Nothing will come of this. I'll post again in a month to taunt you. Smiley
3  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: If you were scammed by Kruniak, WorldwideBTC, or any user using the name Gardner on: January 14, 2015, 02:57:56 AM
Post if scammed by any of these users.  Then PM me.
All of the members scammed by him are old time members such as myself. If you want to find them, John used to be a moderator here, BCB is a chat legend on Bitcoin freenode IRC channel #bitcoin-OTC and others can be asked.

Trust me this was a situation where the whole community wanted him dead but no one had the power to do anything cause they weren't in the right place. At the time, the scam he performed was worth about $5000-$6000, I'm sure he has scammed for more at some point.

It's not that they weren't in the right place. It's that they had no balls. Period.

I said it back then and I'll say it again. If you had any balls at all you would simply drive to my apartment and shoot me in the chest at my doorway.

*edit* Also, the amount of BTC "relocated" was more in the dollar range of $3500. If you claim to know who I am, then you know that outside of a "job", I'm brutally honest to a fault. Get your facts straight Smiley *edit*

The irony (It's not as funny as it sounds) is that the account "Kruniac" did get hacked. I just tried to fucking login and couldn't (password), and the secret question has been changed to something chinese like "Where is XiangHuang" or some shit.

I'm a little pissed, because I was going to use the Kruniac account to shit in the scam thread. =/
5  Economy / Currency exchange / Re: WTB BTC have BoA on: January 14, 2015, 02:47:31 AM
Sent WorldwideBTC 550.00 BoA transfer.

He claimed for days that is was not cleared, whn I know it was cleared that same day.  Refuses to pay.

Stay away.  I will be filing a report through my wife's office, if he slipped in any way, he will be caught.  If not, good scam asshole.

Ref:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=919127.new#new
Message the people who he has obviously traded with in the past. I see that Maidak sold him BTC for moneygram, see if he still has the name he sent to, if possible. This can be a clear cut case, but will need some effort. At the very least, you can show bank of america the fraud and they can get involved and at the minimum shut down his account and possibly recover the funds for you.

Now I realize who WorldWide BTC is...he rang a bell by the way he acted in this thread. Here is who he is. Garrott Gardner. Scammed for a lot back in 2013. Heres the link to the thread, there are more if you do some digging. I believe someone sent him some of the BTC he scammed to sell and the seller pulled a "robin hood" and instead of sending the scammer $ he sent the BTC back to the scammer's victims. He even mentions himself in this thread because Garrott moved across country with his scam and was not touched unfortunately. Its the same guy.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=229612.0;all

His name is Garrott Gardner. He has scammed before. See above.

Here is the profile of his old BTC account (probably one of many) that he has used to scam successfully. See his posts for the same arrogant "I'm invincible attitude" and last name Gardner:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=120425

Yawn. Another day, another dollar.

Evidence?

You stated from your own account the btc address you were sending to.

Period.

No transaction.

You used your own account (Gardner was the name).  You are done.  Maybe the idiot cops you dealt with before didnt do shit.  But you fucked the wrong person.

I am done replying.  Next reply from me will be posting your mugshot.

Good. I did what I wanted to do here. The legend continues.

And yeah, there must have been some kind of glitch with the Fuckcoin or whatever. Luckily, I gave you that consulting work you talked to me about on the phone. Or the other untraceable, intangible product that you wanted that you can't actually prove exists or doesn't exist.

Yawn.

I've shit bigger things than you, son. Smiley

That's Kruniac to you, fella. Who are you, anyway? Why the newbie account?

I'm genuinely curious as to why established folks around here create newbie accounts.

One thing is certain - the burden of proof isn't on ME (or whomever) to show that they DID send bitcoins. The burden of proof is on the VICTIM to prove that they never received goods. As Bitcoins are untraceable to an IP, and a digital good that has no static owner....


....You get the point.

As far as I'm concerned, you got your bitcoins. Prove that you didn't.
He has proved that he sent you a specific address to send the bitcoin to. Unless there is a transaction confirmed by the network for the amount of bitcoin that you owe him to the address he gave you then he has proven that you did not give him the bitcoin as agreed.

He could have sent me anything. That address could be invalid. I barely know what a "botchcoin" is, or whatever you call it. XD
9  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: WorldWideBTC scammer on: January 14, 2015, 02:39:33 AM
Actually, I kind of want to call my bank (hypothetically) and tell him that some scammer is threatening to contact them about something called "bitecoins" or some such voodoo. Whatever you kids are into now adays.

Me? I'm just a humble web developer who accepts bank transfers for work. Who sells everyday goods at reasonable prices. I think I might have sold that "Rock" guy a laptop or something.


...Maybe it was an amazon gift card. An electronic one. Hm. I don't recall.

The truly hilarious thing is that people's accounts get hacked.

Let me spell that out.

PEOPLE. ON THIS FORUM. ILLEGALLY. ACCESS. ACCOUNTS.

And yet the FBI isn't hauling people off? Hmm...

People run away with <$4,000 worth of Bitcoins in group buys that are scams. They run ponzis (WHICH ARE FUCKING ILLEGAL) and run off with the money. Let's not even talk about TradeFortress.

...These people are never prosecuted. Bitcoins aren't something you can chase down. There is no paper trail. There cannot be a theft. You simply are over your head, here.
You are acting a lot like segvec acted when he was caught scaring 14+ btc from SellingHBOgo. Do you happen to be his alt?

No. I'm an older name than that. Truth be told, I wasn't really around/paying attention for that drama. I think I read some red trust about it, but I don't know the details.

What fraud? Prove there was fraud.

That's the center of my point - there is no evidence of fraud. You can't SHOW BoA anything, because it's not there. What're you going to do? Say "HE NEVER SENT MAH BITCOINZ". Then you get a blank stare.

Or at the very least, they'll say "Okay. Give us evidence that you never received the bitcoins". Please do so.

If you can PROVE TO ME that you never received any bitcoins, I'll send you $600 in the mail.

I'll go $450 on this. <.<

This guy is a known scammer. Stole $550 from a newbie. Stay away, just check his trust rating and the references.

That shouldn't stop an escrow transaction. Everyone is safe that way.

Escrow solves all problems.

Guess you didn't confirm receipt either...oh wait, you did.

http://gyazo.com/83c8d7ebc09707d7c62f27d30ce84608


And just as a heads up....although Theymos won't give out users IP's to random requests, he will for a police or court order, his own words.  He can expect that request shortly.

Yeah, I want to see you link an IP to 1 out of 4 or more people who share a living area. I want to see that happen. Frankly, the mailman could have sent you that PM.
I like how you think you know the law so well....truth is, you make some valid points, but not all.

When the IP matches, they may not get you....but they will get the owner of that IP, so maybe your grandmother will get arrested.

You are scum...feel good about yourself?



Except you're wrong. See, there wasn't a cyber crime committed from this IP. You can't prove otherwise.

If my grandmother (All of whom are deceased, but I digress) was the account holder of this IP, it wouldn't matter. What would she be charged with? Lmao.

You legal beagles. You think you got it all sorted, then someone shits on your parade. There is no IP problem here. There is a burden of proof problem. Prove that you NEVER RECEIVED BITCOINS from whomever you sent funds to. You cannot do that. Welcome to crypto.


Let me tell you a little story. Once upon a time there was this guy. He scammed users out of about ~27 BTC. Some of those coins were recovered, but overall, he got away with a decent chunk of change. They had his identity. They had his IP. They had his PHYSICAL LOCATION.

HIS PHYSICAL LOCATION.

Do you know what happened? Wailing. Gnashing of teeth. Sadness. Fury. Nothing.

Nothing but a lot of "heavyweight" BTC businessmen balling their fists and shaking them at the computer screen. Nothing but words, threats, and a lot of annoying (and confusing) phone calls to various legal entities.

Meanwhile the guy moved across the country and went about his business.

If something unfortunate happened to you -that sucks. Get over it. You send funds to anonymous people on the internet for "bitcoins" (which aren't even a fucking thing), you take risks. Welcome to ANONYMOUS CRYPTO CURRENCY.

You don't need to get anyone where the OP lives involved. All he needs to do is contact the local police who would start an investigation into the bank account you told him to deposit funds into. Once that happens your identity will quickly be determined and by your own posts on here you are blatantly admitting to have no intention of giving the OP the bitcoin you sold him. This should be an open and shut case

No. Just no.

No one is going to start an investigation into a bank account receiving funds, because nothing illegitimate happened during the fund transfer.

No one is admitting ANYTHING. Smiley We're all talking hypothetically here, folks.

One thing is certain - the burden of proof isn't on ME (or whomever) to show that they DID send bitcoins. The burden of proof is on the VICTIM to prove that they never received goods. As Bitcoins are untraceable to an IP, and a digital good that has no static owner....

Yea.  Glad 550.00 isnt a huge amount of money for me.

I'll reverse in the morning.  I took precautions also.  I just didnt want to reverse if he was legit.  Guess not.

And the forum still allows sold accounts. SMH

This account was never bought by anyone. Smiley
15  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: WorldWideBTC scammer on: January 14, 2015, 02:10:39 AM
I'm not even interested in running this guy into the ground any more. I want to see how someone from MO is going to use his DA wife to pursue something across half the country to "catch" an anonymous username which is associated with a location rather than an entity.

I mean.. Do you think this is my first time at bat, sir? You sent money to someone's bank account "for bitcoins". As far as I know, you got your coins. Prove that you DIDN'T RECEIVE SOMETHING. XD

Welcome to anonymous cryptocurrency. Although since it's just you complaining, I'm not going to get as much of a kick out of this as I did last time I graced this section of the forums.

So, you didnt PM me a bank account and info to send $550.00 to?

You didn't address what I had said.

Quote
I REALLY want you to prove that I'm the controller of that account, and that the controller of that account and the person who uses this forum account are the same.

SOMEONE sends you SOME info and you send money to it. How is that my problem? Can you prove that the owner of that account and the person who PMed you are the same person? I dunno. Lots of roommates around. Might have left a browser window open at the library (while I was teaching blind children to read). Could have muttered out login details in my sleep with a hooker. You never know!

Also, let's say you send money to an account, hypothetically. Prove that you never received bitcoins.

I'm DYING to see this.

See, around here it works like this - You say "HEY I NEVER RECEIVED THE COINS", then people say "Hey you. Prove you sent those coins or you're a scammer!"

In the REAL WORLD, you say "HEY, I NEVER RECEIVED THOSE COINS", then the legal system says "...He's innocent until you prove otherwise.".

Prove that...

1: The person who was in contact with you is me.

2: The account belongs to me.

3: The entire situation was set up and executed by me (As a human being and US citizen, not as an internet persona).

4: You received nothing in return for your money.

If you can do any of those things, I'll mail you a wad of bills.
