This is bullshit!  Please refund a fair settlement to settle and cancel this contract at 3 BTC.  My customer #16410.

Screw the Police.  

I don't mind being Dox'd because I haven't done anything wrong, save for being dumb enough to put too much faith in everyone and giving them the benefit of the doubt.  But I refuse to change my ways due to the fact that this attitude is more powerful that simply thinking you're smart enough to avoid the scams.

Let me tell you a Story,

Once upon a time; there was a dumb 27 year old Florida Gators fan that went nuts during their haydays, and always went out drinking when his team played important in conference, or rivalry games.  

Well, one time, this person drove home drunk and paid the price with a DUI

5 years later, this same person decided to google his own name and was shocked to see that there were scam artists JUST LIKE the owners of PB mining; that wrote simple powershell scripts to scrape mugshot photos from police websites, and then indexed them on google (where the police websites were protected from the search spiders by bot scripts).  

In fear, This now 32 year old paid $400 to have his mugshot taken down, in fear that someone in his job would see it, possibly affecting his career.  

Upon paying this $400, the image was IMEDIATELY removed; when the site said it would hire a crack team of lawyers to remove the image.  Now, this person may make dumb decisions, but he knows enough to know that a legitimate legal process takes more than 5 mins.

So he started doing some research and was SHOCKED to find out that kids as young as 14 years old were being subjected to this humiliation, and the potential destruction of any job prospects if nothing was done.

So, this person decided to put his contacts into motion.

1.  Wired magazine in order to hit the AP:  http://www.wired.com/2011/08/mugshots/

2.  Hit the AP:  http://gizmodo.com/5949333/how-people-profit-from-your-online-mug-shot-and-ruin-your-life-forever

3.  Have AP coverage inspire local journalists to do a piece in order to attract attention of local lawmakers:  http://archive.sltrib.com/article.php?id=16747469&itype=storyID  

3.  Propose Legeslative Action and succede;  http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/55600434-78/online-photos-lake-salt.html.csp

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsopenrecords/56096488-222/mug-shots-bill-winder.html.csp

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/56132741-78/council-sheriff-county-grama.html.csp

4.  Take legeslative action to other states: be it through state reps or through class action suits:

     Georgia:  http://www.wjbf.com/story/26047721/mugshots-removed-from-law-enforcement-websites-because-of-new-law

     Ohio:  http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2014/01/ohio_lawsuit_over_online_mug_s.html

5.  Once you get a few Statewide debates going... you go for the kill:

     https://www.google.com/search?q=New+York+Times+Mugshot+websites&btnG=Search&hl=en&gbv=1

6  (side note) I move back to Florida and immediately the pinellas county sherriff stops publishing mugshots lol.  guess he wanted my vote over the headache... which he got.


Bottom Line is, these scammers don't fear the law.... They fear AWARENESS.  I am a platnium member of the Electronic Fronteir Foundation:  I have a great job and have plenty of money to play with... I don't play dirty, But I play hard.  

So, PBmining... I don't mind being Dox'd as I don't care what people know about me; as long as I'm trying to do the right thing and help other people who have been wronged in the same way I have.  How many kids signed up for your service?  did you do enough to verify their age?  How many elderly people did you swindle out of their savings.  

I have David Kravetts on Speed dial, I am also good friends with David Segal's (NY Times) brother Mark.  Here are my stipulations; which, I find to be more than fair given your initial post:

 Post your Plan for recovery by Jan 15th or I press my speed dial buttons.

You know where to reach me.  P0intGame@safe-mail.net    go ahead and search for that email on your website.

OK so I'm going to be honest, I have my eggs in one basket, the PBMining basket, I'm worried it's a sinking ship that many on here are saying has sunk already the customers just don't know it yet as they are buying time.

Can I please get an update on this? What do people know? Where is it going? Is it recoverable?

Of course I've messaged them direct but with zero success despite the fact they have been online since my emails have been sent.

I understand they will be very popular at the moment for all the wrong reasons but they need to give us something more, it's not like we can sell the gh/s like on cex.io and get the hell out, we are stuck here on this ship right in the cargo hold with all the TNT.

I emailed pb mining and got this response:


PBMining Admin 
 

Dec 24 (5 days ago)

to me

 


pb mining is currently a failing business and a recovery is trying to be made. if you feel you have suffered a loss i am sincerely sorry, our losses are very large as well. there are thousands of customers affected by this.  other options are also being looked at for sources of recovery.
