2  Economy / Digital goods / [WTS] Quirky.com giftcards @ 50% discount! on: March 19, 2014, 01:09:27 PM
I have earned quite a bit by joining Quirky.com early, before the crowd. Now I have some $ accumulated on my account, but the payout fees, paperwork and taxes for oversees payout is making it complicated for me to cash out. Oversees delivery + customs fees are making it inefficient for me to spend my accumulated $ on goods for myself. I can however buy gift cards for you that allows you to buy physical goods on the quirky.com webshop. You can spend the gift card on both goods and delivery, so if you live in the US its a real bargain for you.

You pay me in BTC and I offer 50% off on the nominal values of gift cards. The gift card codes are sent directly to you by Quirky.com and you can verify the gift card balance online on their website. I won't even now the codes myself. I am willing to go first if you are a reputable forum member. PM me if interested.



I am on this board since 2011. I am not an active trader, I mostly just hang around and participate in logo and graphics competitions. Nevertheless I completed a few mutually beneficial OTC transactions with other forum members before.

There are 2 parts to the trick:
1] The dice is drawn on transparent background, and the dots on the face are a solid color that matches the forum background. This way while the entire pic is against the forum background, both the sides of the dice and the dots are grey and blend in with the forum background. As soon as you drag it against the green background, you will see the green shining through the transparent areas, while the dots will appear grey on green solid.

2] The pic is actually an animated gif cycling various rolls of the dice. The moment you drag the pic, the gif freezes to the frame that happens to be displayed. Thus the random element of the roll. The 2 dice are the same gif, except with a different frame cycling frequency. Thus it makes them roll separately and random.

You need a picture banner?

Hello,
I am looking for a logo for a kids salon called HAPPY BALLOON !!! If i like your logo i will pay 0.1 BTC Wish you luck!!! Please shoot me with questions if you like.

BR,
Gondel

Try making balloons which together look like scissors.
Like a pair of scissors shown with the handle-like part up
[ur=http://www.tweezerman.com/uploaded_files/images/products/b_6320733628686da67fde9e36922355287200_Scissors.jpgl]Like in this image from google xD[/url]

And then , replace balloons on the two finger-holes on the scissor..


I am confused. The OP is gondel, yet this input comes from jambola2.
Is gondel = jambola2? Or is jambola2 just adding his 2 cents? Or he is the secret owner of the happy balloons studio?
 Huh

Another balloon, scissor, comb theme:



No text.

No text but with clouds?

Scissor and a comb floating away on a happy balloon ride, slightly on the pixar "UP" theme?

I should get those bitcoins because if you watch long enough you will see my avatar blink.
And a blinking unicorn is just bound to be worth 0.05 BTCs.

 Shocked

It's cheap, but I have some time and like to draw.
How is this?

If you wait for a few confirmations you'll be fine.

The worst that could happen is you unwittingly participate in a scam on somebody else.  Scammer contacts you to buy your product.  Scammer contacts another guy to sell some product of similar value.  Scammer convinces him to send first-- to YOUR bitcoin address.  Scammer tells you he's paid you, you send him your product.  As far as you're concerned, everything is fine.  But unknown to you, some other guy just sent you bitcoins and is going to get nothing in return, and the scammer is going to get your product for free.  You could ensure this doesn't happen by asking the scammer to sign a message with the address he used to pay you.

This happens on IRC all the time when scammers buy cryptocurrencies.  They get a third party to paypal you, you send them the coins, they disappear, the third party then files a dispute with paypal, you're out the coins, the third party has a bunch of hassle, and both you and the third party think you're mad at each other, not even realizing that you were both communicating not with each other but with the scammer.  So neither of you even knows there was a scammer involved, you both just think it's the other guy who ripped you off.  But the truth is the scammer facilitated everything, telling you he's the third guy and telling the third guy he's you.

All of this being said-- it's 99% likely OP that the guy is on the up and up.  Most scammers don't send crypto, and don't offer to go first.  If it's less than a few hundred dollars worth, I would just believe him... as long as he does indeed send first.  This stuff I'm talking about is just possibilities to be aware of-- I don't think it's actually happening in your case OP.

That's good to know, I was not aware of this setup.

Still, you delivered your goods and got your money. So technically, you are not the sucker in this scheme. Except that the participant can guilt you into sharing the loss, or can raise a case against your forum userId to be marked as a scammer. Still, with proof of shipment you can defend yourself against scammer accusations on the board. There is a temptation to share the loss of the innocent party, but you are not obliged to as you did nothing wrong.

I am still unclear why a scammer would make this elaborate scheme. It sounds complicated enough since you have to scam 2 people at the same time. Why not just rip off the buyer? What's the upside of complicating it?

Generally, if you are on the receiving side of the Bitcoins and the Bitcoins are there with 6+ confirmations you are unlikely to be scammed.
Most scams are technically unsophisticated and work on the reverse:
Send me your bitcoins first, and then you will:
- receive goods
- receive services
- receive interest
which of course will never happen.

Beware of lending and "investments", and only do Paypal with trusted counterparties. Generally if a deal looks to good, its probably scam. Don't be shy to ask why it's worth for the other guy. If he can't tell you a plausible story how he is making a profit on the deal or why its worth for him to do it, just walk away.

Oh, I thought it was like "Can I be scammed?".
I was like, sure! If you want to be scammed, just send all your earnings to: 17cETm8zDugFKuNQMprW6GgAFEpmrcPUA.
I will scam you if that's what you are into  Grin

There are all kinds of people, so maybe there are some who are into scam fetish? That would be a very highly specialized niche, but I am willing to fill that market gap, if someone is interested!

I hope whoever was so pissed about getting that tip threw it away. Just to realize now that the tip he was so righteously pissed off about is worth $116 now.
