1  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Find Trendon Shavers in person thread... [BTCST, BTS&T, pirateat40] on: October 26, 2012, 12:20:34 PM
Bitlane, we are trying to collect all Trendon Shavers deposit and transaction information.  However it is up to the individuals if they want to do that publicly or privately.

Forgive my concern, in regards to the following point....but, as far as 'Info Collecting' ? You seemed to have me a bit confused as to your not knowing who 'the other guy' was in that pic of Trendon and his brother Rylan.

Perhaps we should speak on the telephone, because if some of the current 'investigating' parties are just now making personal connections and figuring out who the players are/were......I must say, that is about 6+ months BEHIND the 'curve' as it were.
If you are just starting out, you will find it difficult as Trendon has had over 6 months to attempt to cover tracks and although I have a TON of info, I actively collected it all beginning in January up to now.

I am all for you being the 'leader' of this pack, but let's make sure that time is not being spent simply bringing you up to speed, otherwise, BrightAnarchist should be spearheading this.

Again, forgive me if I am off the mark here. Feel free to straighten me out. Wink

Also, why do you love the Barron.  I didn't bother to follow that thread.

TheBaron provided me with a nice little smoking gun...... IP/TxID/BTCST/GPUMAX Connection etc. Basically just enough info to implicate more people (the entire GPUMAX registered partners etc) with a 100% undeniable connection to this fraud thanks to coin tracing etc.

Bah, I'm busy with moving on with my life right now. But I should give up the info:

Basically I had a long chat with his last employer, who is a great guy but flat out told me that Trendon is a total con man. He stole money from the company (The Lending Partners) in a wide variety of ways. He headed up IT there and routed orders through his "personal" account, which was just a trick for him to skim off the top of all the orders. Eventually he started charging pirated software, and then ultimately just made up reams of fake orders to steal directly from the company. He ended up stealing tens of thousands before they figured it all out. Unfortunately, before they figured it out, he had also borrowed about 13K from the company's owner (apparently he was very convincing, and sometimes did bizarre "random acts of kindness" and was "charming" when necessary), and when he finally threatened Trendon with legal action Trendon just told him that he was planning on declaring bankruptcy and that he had no assets - so they dropped the case.

The guy is a compulsive liar with a massive fantasy-based ego as well. Before they fired him, they noticed he would say all kinds of bullshit like that he went to MIT for a year (fake), he was a pool hustler (he could barely play), an amazing blackjack player (barely knew anything), as basketball superstar (could barely play) etc, etc. It got to the point where he lied so much that everyone in the office thought it was almost funny: they'd say "what'd Trendon make up this week?"

He even asked the owner for 2 million at one point, telling him he could turn it into 3 million in ~one week~ - but he wouldn't tell him any details, including who it would go to or anything! When I told him about btcst and what is going on, he said not only was he not surprised, but he said along the lines of "this was where it had to go because he just can't help himself, he has to feed his ego. He's a con man, it's who he is." He called the delays/excuses "classic Trendon" and said he pulled the exact same shit when he was asked to repay the company.

I suppose a die-hard would say my conversation is not 100% proof that btcst was a scam, but after hearing this character reference from a trustworthy source, combined with everything else that has happened, I'd say the chances of him repaying are about as likely as me jumping 10 stories high (hey, Trendon can do it! really!)

Too bad they didn't get him the first time. It would have saved a lot of people a lot of pain and loss.

This is priceless. Nice job.



BrightAnarchist: You had said something previously about knowing 'with near certainty' that pirateat40 has 10% of the coins left. Any info on that?

I was just following the coins from the deposit addresses. They move in a very bizarre manner, not like normal transactions, but more like deliberate laundering. Basically, one address moves coins sequentially from one address to another (very rapidly, looks scripted), and after each hop a very tiny amount of coins is split off into another address. After hundreds of hops it finally gets to the point where the coins reach 0 and a "leaf" is found. Then all of the tiny addresses recombine later into large accounts.

Here are some of the stashes, you can follow your nose from input addresses to reach these points:

This one has 40K BTC in it:
https://blockchain.info/address/1BqcwhKevdBKeos72b8E32Swjrp4iDVnjP

Another big one with about 7K BTC, coins are still moving (it's ALIVE!):
https://blockchain.info/address/1NuTLFADAHJZqUQ9ogAqroCzDhsGjV5vyE

Again, inputs from BTCST can be directly traced here, and the path definitely does not look like a series of "natural" transactions, but definitely deliberate laundering. Walk the chain yourself, it's boring but you'll see what I mean pretty quick.

I guess we can't be 100% certain though I suppose, so I apologize if saying that was too hasty, but honestly what's the point of a scam if there's no profit? He's got something (although certainly not 500K lol). It's just common sense.

How are you tracking/tracing things ?
I, myself, can only stare at the blockchain.info site for so long till I go cross-eyed....lol
Good Info none the less.

How is that 10K BTC investment with pirate going for ya? Still compounding interest? What are we at now 25k BTC? ROFL!~  Cheesy

Good one.  I guess you got me there.  Burned.  Or whatever the kids say nowdays.  My current guess:  it is worth zero.  Thanks for asking.

Would you care to finally share the transaction information for that 'deposit' now that we are all at this point ?

One thing to remember when talking to the involved Government Agencies is to IMPLICATE AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE and let them (the interested agencies) sort out who belongs and who doesn't.

Many of us have CLEAR proof that GPUMAX and BTCST co-mingled funds in a shared wallet, so to offer up the GPUMAX board of directors onto the final chopping block shouldn't be overlooked.

It's best that I 'hang back' from this thread, as I honestly have nothing new to add and 99.9% of the information that I have was gathered LONG before (6 months) prior to the collapse, beginning with the now infamous 'Hot Check Warrant' that I was too scared to inform people about, but still reported it to a trusted forum staff member for advice on how to proceed.

I will conclude with saying that I found out a long time ago that a Civil Case would be pointless, so during the course of this, I have been in contact with every and any Government Agency that was willing to listen to me because I had already come to terms with the fact that I would never see a penny back, so to re-iterate, SCORCHED EARTH has been and will continue to be my #1 goal throughout the conclusion of this situation.

I for one would sure like some info on his lawyer, because the Government won't say shit after all complaints are filled, other than it's being 'looked into' and for a Civil Claim, I have to throw more good money after bad to hire someone to track him down and serve him papers in person.

Hopefully the Government can hang a large enough felony on him that he ends up some big black guy's bitch and I can kiss my BTC away with less regret.

Dear User,

We regret to inform you that GPUMAX will be permanently closing on October 31st, 2012.

While we strongly believe in Bitcoin's continued success, our vision has always been to provide our users with the greatest opportunities to utilize their GPU processing power. Creating a mining marketplace was meant to be the first of many such opportunities, however, due to the events of recent months, we feel that the best course of action is to cease all operations.

Thank you for participating in our beta.

Regards,

The GPUMAX Team
