Newbie status, with the post starting with "OK so", ergo (that means 'therefore') this has to be an excellent OP to read.

theymos, what are the chances of you creating a Trollbie section on this forum?

It looks like everything is set.  I will be sure to post plenty of pics!

Almost, just a tad slow on their end waiting for an email, probably due to it being Friday and all, for I heard a many machines a runnin' in the background when I spoke with Mike.

Thanks, CC, for taking part in all this, knowing that you'll do your damndest to get the banner televised, or at least in front of a camera hoping that it was televised live. We all look forward to seeing all the pics you take come Monday or so, for Sunday would be to late to get them posted unless you're using a smartphone.

The intent to launder money is not at all clear, though.  Money laundering is a specific intent offense.  While that need not necessarily be as specific as, say, intent to launder the proceeds of cocaine sales by Pablo Escobar to fund terrorists, just to pick a glaring example, it certainly has to be more specific than just an intention to collect fees on processing transactions that seem a little fishy.

Yeah.  Money laundering is attempting to disguise the unlawful origin of money.  At most, Shrem knew that some of the money would likely be used to buy drugs.  There wasn't evidence that it had an illicit origin.

Still, some of the stuff Shrem allegedly wrote looks really bad for him.  You've got to wonder what he was thinking.

my point is bitco you are incorrect about your facts and should look more into it.  Spitzer was transferring smaller amounts through friends that were far below the 10k you quoted.   He was caught through the reporting of suspicious transfers and was not told he was reported.
Your casino 1099 comment is incorrect also.  go cash a $700 ticket.   they do not write out 1099s.   But yes, you as an american do have a responsibility to report all income you make.  Your $600 reference is the trigger point that a business must issue a 1099 and have a current W9 on file for the person (or LLC) that they have done business with.
I guess my larger point is, when you are not sure about the law, you should not post things that are incorrect.  
What did I post that was incorrect?  Are you claiming that reporting of gambling income is not subject to the $600 threshold of 26 USC 6041 ?

The Spitzer case is a separate issue.  Suspicious activity reports can be filed for amounts less than $10000.  There is a $10000 threshold for currency transaction reports. You are mixing up several different things here.
I cannot educate you unless you care to learn.  You would be mistaken (and likely confused) on your first question and you are ALSO incorrect that the "threshold" is $10,000.
This is the last I will say to you.   If you wish to learn more, go to a casino and see what happens when you win $601...    You do not know what you are speaking of.   You are mixing google searches up and applying them to other things....
If you wish to test your $10,000 theory which you either take from the customs form for the US or from some other google search that you did, it will be simple for you to do.   If you have $9,000 in your bank account.   Go down and withdraw $4,000 (or $2,000 if you have more patience).   Then do it at another branch OR do it again the next day BUT DO NOT take out more than $10k.   If they do not ask someone to come over, do it one more time the next day.    See if you get it as quickly and without a supervisor having to "approve" the teller doing it.     See if they ask if what you want the money for (then they are deciding whether you are suspicious or not).  You might learn something.
Or if you know anyone in vegas or that works at a book or a cage in a casino, ask them.
Enough time wasted on that.

At my bank, I have a $2,000 daily limit, reduced a year ago from $5,000, then to $3,000 a couple months later, currently at setting at two.

Question: Does the IRS read this forum?

Still waiting.  Cry This is like waiting for a baby to be born (I think), for I got knots in my stomach. The CC is now covered with sweat waiting to be used. And I have to pee. And I think I broke the F5 key on this here laptop. Anybody want to change places with me? Shit! Now I have to take a shit! When will this madness come to an end?

The idea is awesome, but i have some doubts about the realization. Are we sure it is not a scam? How will it be launched? Who is exactly working on  that? That "donate now before it is too late" just make the alarm rings

changed to "limited Space donate if you feel like supporting this project" i don't want people to feel scammy about this project . its is supposed to be fun

as far as realization. I will complete this mission without a dime from anyone. I can cover the cost

To be fair, I haven't called your endeavor a scam, but have made light of it at your expense due to the general sentiment expressed in your thread. I suggest maintaining being light-hearted toward any naysayers, having fun while moving forward with your quest to the stars, bud.

Looks like an elaborate scam to me.

Here's another one, of which I'm not sure how many bitcoins will be fleeced with this scam: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=442864.0 When will these fuckers ever learn that paying for shit outta their own pockets is not the proper way to conduct a scam?

Just got off the phone with Mike (Michael) of Manhattan Banner, a fine outfit, and he stated that there'll be no problem with printing and delivering the banner to the Waldorf Astoria where a fellow Bitcoiner (mentioned on the other thread, but withheld hear just in case, not wanting to take anything for granted) will take possession of it.

Simply waiting now for a quote via email (~5 Minutes), of which I'll pay via CC (sorry, but they don't take bitcoins at this time) for the printing and delivery of the following image to be printed on a vinyl banner.

I am looking at both news updates, and I cant find a single word about the approved Certifications, which makes me wonder how that customer walked out with his miner as they claim (and as he claim).

Quote
I got my picture taken, saw the box, and then had to leave without it because they could not legally give it to me.

He is having the miner hosted at Cointerra until the certifications are complete.

3294  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: HashFast announces specs for new ASIC: 400GH/s on: January 31, 2014, 07:29:40 PM

Any indication that is actually him and not just a guy with the same name or someone who thought it would be funny to make an account by that name?

Look at his post in the IceShill thread, it sure looks like he is informed about HF:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=269216.msg4858348#msg4858348

Yeah, I saw that.   A lot of the other posts from that account seem immature and unprofessional though seems like a bone headed move for the CEO of a company under so much scrutiny to be acting like that.

Have you seriously not seen the Kottmeier posts of him posing nearly nude and the video of him submitting his resume after already being fully employed, along with his partner Skropenis, by HashFast?
3295  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: HashFast announces specs for new ASIC: 400GH/s on: January 31, 2014, 07:18:01 PM
the HFB comes with a one page manual "Welcome to your new Baby Jet" and a 3 (three) page "Cover our ass Limited Hardware Warranties" stating you are SOL when the hardware does not work as it's always your fault when it breaks.
Now, this is funny.

It's clear the lawyer has completely taken over any common sense
Looks like so... Btw, have anyone ever noticed that one of the business address we have of HF is exactly the same as the lawyers' business address?

Welcome to the new offices of Ettinger, Barber, de Castro, Johnson, Skropenis, Screwem, Cheatem & Howe.

BTW, there's no reason for bitcoiners to swarm over to http://capacitor.squarespace.com/board/, for there's nothing, I repeat, nothing, Bitcoin related that can be gleaned there.

On a side note, I wonder how large the biggest bed in the world is and, is it big enough?

3297  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin-themed banner to be waved during Super Bowl XLVIII in MetLife Stadium. on: January 31, 2014, 05:58:26 PM
I'm hyped! Are you waiting for a call, because you sent a request. Or are you already waiting for a notification that it is ready to be picked up?

just wanted to tell you - it does not scan with my apps. running Nexus 5/ ZXing Barcode scanner scanning from big computer screen.

I really don't understand how than can happen with a Nexus 5. I downloaded ZXing Barcode scanner and it scanned instantly (monitor & laptop screen). Less than a second - and I have a Nexus 4. Maybe the app or phone is broken, otherwise it should definitely scan.

The problem always is with phones that have a very bad camera (>3MP), so a Nexus 5 should have no problem at all. There are also some poorly code apps. Google Goggles is the best QR reader that I've tried so far.


I'm waiting for a call from Michael to place the order, blasting him an email at the same time. I'm sure that Manhattan Banner is up to the task, willing to pay virtually whatever (nominal rate, of course) to have the banner printed and delivered to the Waldorf Astoria's front desk, located only about a mile away.

So close, I can taste it. Currently waiting for a return call from http://manhattanbanner.com/, located about a mile away from the Waldorf.
3299  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Poll: Bitcoin Foundation needs Andreas? on: January 31, 2014, 05:25:41 PM
They see him as a liability.  The foundation is dominated by statists who want to play nice with regulators.  

Hence, being voted in during the next election.

Fuck it! We'll draft him.  Grin
