Your link indicates you are in north carolina. So you are complying with all of Which means you have 9 other partners hundreds of thousands of dollars (minimum) and all deposits can be withdrawn in US legal tender (as per the regulation)?

What he said.

I'd like to know their names also, your partners in this 100% legitimate credit union. Not only for myself but the other investors in line behind me.

Are you sure the Sweeeedes are for serious about this...

This picture seems to be entitled ASIC Preview #1:

It's even an off-grid, self-powered unit, apparently.

But will it work with cgminer/bfgminer, that's the real question.

julz I called my CC company and requested chargeback. I had a unit in the first round (low 700's) I don't feel like getting involved in this thread (especially now that cablepair is singing to people) but I thought I would let you know my situation.

these type of threads are BULLSHIT

we have always honored our refund requests but a thread like this basically just kills my business

Ask yourself this question:

Do you want a nice friendly refund as we have been giving or do you want to completely put me out of business?

 because if you completely put me out of business than you are going to have to come to NY to take me to small claims court.

ask yourself this question, do you really want to come to NY to take me to small claims court? or do you just want to wait your turn and quietly get your requested refund as hundreds of people already have. Keep with the mob mentality its only going to keep you separated from your money longer.

this thread is bad for anyone seeking a refund, and the mods need to take notice and remove threads such as this.

this is not good for you. Please stop.

im reporting this to the mods myself - I encourage others to do the same.


Tom - this thread is the direct result of an information vacuum.
What would be good for business is a simple email to those who have asked for refunds to at the very least acknowledge receipt.

The last I heard from your team regarding refunds - was that CC chargebacks were recommended.
I've only held off on that because a) I believe I still have a little time left in my chargeback window
b) I *don't* want to cause your business harm if I can help it.

Fix your tone - and provide more info.  PLEASE.

I would just like to acknowledge to MNW that I read this and also that I somehow feel sorry for you that you got involved in the internet relay chats over in #btcst so many moons ago. I never participated in any particular betting or forum conversations on this matter, but I'm very aware of it.

Let me summarize a very critical moment when "steamboat" a person or individual who was authenticated to IRC nickserv as pirateat40 said to MNW:

"OK MNW the time is up, now make a trade with me an unload all that debt. Let them blame it on me."

MNW replied no that it was his responsibility.

"steamboat" says something about how MNW doesn't want this responsibility it is too big.

I say something about how if MNW were to make this "debt swap" he would lose all credibility.

MNW agrees with me and proceeds down this path, decisively.

I forget the particulars on the dates but it happened like this and I witnessed the moment MNW could have walked away and blamed this on someone else easily and he did not, he accepted his fate at that very moment in time. This was at least a week before he was scammer-tagged.

I don't really condone any of it or have any association with Matthew, I just thought I'd share.

When reps for a company are advising people to DO A CHARGEBACK you have to be an idiot to not RUN (not walk, RUN) for the exit.  There are chargeback fees of $25 to $50 on top of the cost of the refund.   It never makes sense for a company to request chargebacks over just issuing a refund.  Too many chargebacks means the comapny will lose their merchant account and likely see their reserve frozen for 180 days.  That is something that benefits nobody.

So a company NEVER asks customers to do a chargeback.  Ever.  For any reason.  The fact that anyone in the company is making that request should scare the crap out of any customer soon to be unsecured creditor of an insolvent company.

What he said. I followed suit yesterday on bASIC. Chargeback is scary ju-ju.

I still like the idea of "solo pool" where the highest hasher wins everything and everyone else gets nothing.

Yes, please switch to litecoins or whatever new alt-coin comes next. gpu-based bitcoin mining is the future, but only for the brave suckers.... In the meantime I'll redeem these 2 million coinlab shares.

98  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: [Q] Selling bitcoins using PayPal - What's the risk? on: December 07, 2012, 01:16:06 AM
I believe you are at risk for paypal charge-back in general for 180 days; 6 months. Gift, not gift, I do not think it matters. Maybe this is just a myth we spread in -otc but I believe it to be true, myself.

I can tell you that I have been questioned on a large-ish gift transaction, something to the effect of 28 days after the fact, by paypal. I responded and questioned their security practices and the issue slipped away...

Personal transaction -> Payment Owed (or the reverse) is usually considered good practice and above-board, but YMMV, especially if you are a business entity.

Nothing personal against you guys as CoinLab, but personally I see no reason to continue to point my gear at you guys.  With the block reward being reduced, quite clearly the profit margin has significantly decreased for all miners, regardless of what gear they are using.  That being said, while personally my GPU systems are still profitable, every little bit counts now more than ever.  I can see no reason to stay here until/unless the HPC client is released and providing work.  There are just to many other pools out there with far more features, and lower fees.

I wish you all the best of luck, and I hope I will be back soon with the release of the HPC client and work.

What, you have no more loyalty points to redeem or something?!

I have all my "Loyalty Points" left, I just see no reason to use them at this time.

I basically agree with TheHarbinger about the no reason to mine at coinlab unless they get the HPC client rocking and rolling, with the exception of the loyalty points though. My thoughts are that If you believe the value of BTC will rise, it is prudent to redeem those points now, rather than later. This is because Coinlab is repaying in USD and then converting to BTC based on market forces.
