1182  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: I was just scammed on: October 08, 2014, 06:43:07 AM
OP you got scammed by someone posing as Michail1...not the real Michail1. Learn from this and do not let it happen again. I can assure you Michail1 does not hide his identity and would never scam...

Sorry for you loss  Embarrassed

I often trade here and OTC...look at what happens ->  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=335426 (a fake me trying to scam one of my auctions)

Scammers here are shameless....they make names all the time that are similar to scam.

Since this was brought up.....
You can find user accounts that scammers have made to simulate nicks by clicking on MEMBERS, then search for members.  Simply searching for  `  (backtick) will show over 100 nicks.
Well known people like TomatoCage has several scammer nicks created to simulate him.
I searched for Blazedout to find not only   Blazedout419` (backtick at the end), but also Blazedout4I9  (1 replaced with a I)
Hell, even Theymos has several scammer nicks associated.   o replaced with 0.    Some with ` at the beginning and some at the end or a spacebar then backtick at the end.

TitanBTC (The coin mint has a scammer impersonating him as well (account created only just over 2 weeks ago)  != TitanBTC `   (space backtick)
The tactic is that he may post a sale item.  Someone shows interest via the thread, and the scammer uses the similar nick (backticks or transposed letters) to send a message to the interested party directly in hopes to scam him without the real seller ever knowing.

Looks like the scammer created  michail  on 4/13/2014.  This ties in with the bitcoinclassifieds.net ad as well.
And, I contacted bitcoinclassifieds.net regarding the scam, and they have shut down the account using my name as of yesterday.

Lastly, although I didn't want to confuse the matter more, we are talking about two different scammers.
This all started with the scammer known as the Siberian.  Broken English / poor grammar.  The ad was showing from Luxemburg whereas I am in Seattle.
The second scammer is well known on IRC scamming people by using proxies and setting his nick to trusted accounts.  He has better English, but not by much.  He doesn't use proper grammar.  Never capitalizes his sentences.  Uses short wording like; ur instead of you're, ill instead of I'll, and well instead of we'll.   He has been careful not to use his real IP; however, he has clicked a few links put up by people to track his location and if anyone knows how/what to do with an IP (since it has been the same in the 3 times I was informed), I would be happy to talk to you about it.   Law enforcement maybe?  (Long list of nicks used)

OP - You said you sent the information on to an exchange.  I am guessing to where you sent the coins.  I truely hope you get your XF back, although I don't think they would spend much time on it.

I have spent enough time on this thread.  Good luck.

<Genitrust> ok cool
[/tt]


I'm confused by this part of your post, are you saying the "scammer" somehow verified they were Michail1 by logging into your site? Have to say that Michail came across extremely defensive, like, more than necessary when this was posted. Remember zolace turned from a trusted character into a scammer because he got greedy one day.

No.  What he is showing is that the scammer 'told' him that he was verified as me.   It would be like me taking a photo of Bill Gates from the internet and showing it to you and saying.... See, I am Bill Gates.
The verifying BOT on Freenode didn't tell him that the scammer was verified.  He simply checked my verification string and pasted it to him in a message.    Just because you have a signature line in an email saying your name is Bob, doesn't mean you are really Bob.
1184  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: I was just scammed on: October 07, 2014, 01:38:16 AM
Uhhh, you never talked to me other than the SINGLE message I quoted in this thread.   PLEASE post a single chat log message from me.  Please, just a single verifiable one.

Also, I don't have gmail.
My email addresses are:  Michail1@aol.com (as stated) and Michail@Michail.com



1185  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: I was just scammed on: October 07, 2014, 01:26:20 AM
So, you have nothing to offer as any proof?
No signed contract, no logs, no nothing?   I mean really, simply nothing but a fake name?   No links or anything?

You also mentioned you have friends looking into it.  Great, please post any information you have.  Of course, anything made up would be worthless.
You haven't even replied to any of my questions for comments, logs, IPs, or anything.
1186  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: I was just scammed on: October 07, 2014, 01:21:01 AM
I just got this message from akula999

It's convenient that you posted everything you did. Also, I've had some friends look into this matter.
Last chance. Please give me back either 1500 XC or it's equivalent in BTC so that I can repurchase.

Remember, no one likes scam artists.

You're welcome to keep this public.  I would prefer it.  Why don't you post the logs publicly?
At this point, I just think you're trying to get free BTC / XF without any kind of proof of being scammed at all (especially by me or the inventor or LTC).
1187  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: I was just scammed on: October 07, 2014, 12:44:56 AM
Correction.   I didn't know what XC is/was.

PS.  BobbyL isn't even an account on bitcointalk.  I would guess it would be short for Bobby Lee (inventor of LTC) whom I also highly doubt would be interested in your 3.5 worth of XC.  

Just did a google search on the email address you came up with which leads to a classified ad to:
http://www.bitcoinclassifieds.net/ad/7640_582_btc_for_change/

"Greetings to all traders, I have 528 BTC, I want to replace my btc for other currencies, an advantage LTC, NMC, PPC, XPM, FTC, I hope you will contact me for good rate , this is just the beginning Smiley thanks you can email me passat.ltc@gmail.com http://imgur.com/pJVs0fH"

Note 582 vs 528.

The ad is more than 30 days old.  Nice 'picture' of a wallet with plenty of coin going in it.   Additional checking shows that the actual (valid) address in the picture NEVER had 528 coin, let alone 582, in it.  So, even the picture of the address is fake and over 5 months old.

Speaking of 'pictures'..... If I post a picture of Bill Gates, would you believe I am Mr. Gates himself.  I mean, if someone tells you they are me, why would you believe them.  I am still interested in how you contacted the scammer in the first place.  What on Earth made you believe it was me without the slightest in checking?

The only real 'Michail Hoffman' I could find died in 1862, although there is another from New York with a youtube video.

I have never had a bitcoinclassified account until I just created it because of this scam....

1188  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: I was just scammed on: October 07, 2014, 12:17:47 AM
I was just informed of this thread.

First, I don't trade in ANY alt coin. EVER.  Never even heard of XF.
I have never spoken to you.

I am VERY easy to find.  I only have ONE user name.  Just google my name (first name is enough) and/or my user name.

Since you're easy to post names of people without showing any proof, then it's your own fault for not at least checking the identify of the person you were scammed by.

MANY people know who I am.  I use my real name, my accounts on ALL forums, email addresses, and domains all have my REAL information with my real address, etc.

I am Michail1
I use Michail1@aol.com
I have Michail1.com, 1michail1.com, michail.com
I always log in from TWO ip addresses (home and work).
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=31539

Do you know who I am or who BobbyL is?   Heh.   I would bet a large sum of bitcoin that you are not being honest with the names you are using.
Take note that Michail1 is not the same as 'Michail1 or MichalL1 or Michael1, etc.   B0bby1 is diff than BobbyL or `BobbyL , etc.

Please post your logs of the scam you claim to have been hit by.  Make it public.  But, be careful whom you blame.

Hell, you may even be able to get the forum OP to see who you were talking to, but it would be easier if you simply check your own messages.  Again, I don't trade anything other than BTC and I don't do it in the forums.  I only buy Casascius coins within this forum.

Added Kialara bearer bars

The maker website can be found here:

Are you selling these?

I can't get maxfield to respond to me.  I tried his email, his domain, and even his ebay auction.
1191  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [WTS] Very Rare Casascius 25 BTC - 2011 Coin on: August 23, 2014, 04:06:01 PM
I do not think anyone here would have an issue sending to Charlie first...everyone in Bitcoin land knows who he is.  I would send him payment first no questions asked.

Blazie...
Oh great.  I just said I wouldn't do that and now you're forcing me to reconsider.   Smiley
Agreed, everyone knows whom he is. 
1192  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [WTS] Very Rare Casascius 25 BTC - 2011 Coin on: August 23, 2014, 04:06:49 AM
What is your preference for payment?   Coins or cash?

Anything non reversible. BTC, mail order, ect.
If there was a way to "reverse" cash, every casino in vegas would be bankrupt.
What is your lowest cash price to sell this coin?   

27.5BTC

Ummm, that was a little confusing.  I think he was asking for a lowest cash price.

I am offering 27BTC for it.
1193  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Silver Wallets a new kind of physical storage for your bitcoin on: August 19, 2014, 07:33:03 PM

All of our coins are proof strikes!

'proof it'    Smiley

Ummm, how do we put in a Pkey, sticker, and still send it in as proof strike?   Heh.   JK.
Looking forward to getting mine.
1194  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Silver Wallets a new kind of physical storage for your bitcoin on: August 09, 2014, 03:33:36 AM
One business day delay?  That's just unacceptable in Bitcoin.  Ha!   Way better than Two weeks.   Just kidding.
Thanks for the update.
1195  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Casascius Bearer Bars - Protective Airtite Case ? on: August 08, 2014, 07:21:04 PM
Can I see a pic of the bar? I wanna know if it's safe so it's worth buying

What do you mean by 'safe'?  It's not meant to protect the coin/bar.  It is more meant as a display.

Judgement call on being worth buying.  You might have spent $600 on the bar plus whatever was added to the bar, so I think spending $20 on the case is well worth it.  Smiley

It is sandwitched between two layers of a type of film (not sticky).  So, you can open and close the case as often as you want (reposition, etc).
If gives the appearance that the object is floating.  When you take a picture or angled right, you can see the film.
1196  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Casascius Bearer Bars - Protective Airtite Case ? on: August 08, 2014, 04:40:32 PM
Well, not the type of case people are searching for; however, I currently have my bars in these until something better comes along....

Nimbus Frame
http://www.lindner-usa.com/pg5_englisch/sonstige-sammelgebiete/nimbus-frames.html

Many diff sizes avail.  Not my site.
I will post pics of a bar or two or coins in them if requested.

1197  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Silver Wallets a new kind of physical storage for your bitcoin on: August 08, 2014, 04:07:16 PM
I was told they were going to possibly ship Friday.  I think that is today.  Yeah!
1198  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Casascius Bearer Bars - Protective Airtite Case ? on: August 08, 2014, 04:59:39 AM
Bump (as I would like to find something as well).
1199  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [WTS] 2013 All Silver Casascius coins!! on: August 02, 2014, 08:04:33 PM
Beautiful!

Do you have a price in mind for buy all or half of them?
1200  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Silver Wallets a new kind of physical storage for your bitcoin on: July 29, 2014, 02:13:24 AM
I would be interested in a Gold wallet (NOT PLATING).
Serial #11

My guess is you would be far cheaper than Titan since you don't include the 1BTC in private key/printing, etc.   Smiley

If you do a 1/2oz coin, I would be interested in that as well.
