So this was their response (PM):

"Yes go fuck yourself we scammed you and you are never getting a cent back."

Has their account be hacked or is this a fake account? Admin???

63  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: mt gox claims on: May 25, 2015, 09:35:35 PM
Please send an email to support@mtgox.com - we will need to do additional verification to process your claim.

well hello monsieur gox. I shall send you an email very soon. Thanks for getting back to me... I did give you my email address and phone number with a request that you contact me. Wink

EDIT: Just tried sending an email to support@mtgox.com and it failed. Do you have a working address?

Thanks

I did a similar thing - locked myself out of my account! I ended up sending the papers via snail mail. It was received and signed for about a week later. Now im just waiting to hear from them... I guess  Undecided

This is far too elaborate to be anything other than a job done to order

I know, in my opinion these guys probably have no idea the extent they've been setup. Who knows what was really in some of those boxes? Someone gave the orders to get a crew together. These guys were the unlucky ones chosen...

Yes 8 people appeared in court today for conspiracy to burgle. 1 has been bailed and another arrested today. Apparently they recovered a bag containing 'many high value items' they believe are from the vault. Looks like their balls were bigger than their brains...

Cool. I blocked my number Wink

Seems a bit expensive though. What is the average price of calls?

Anyone heard anything back from kraken or mtgox after filing a claim? I locked myself out of my account somehow and ended up sending the completed paperwork to Japan where it was received a week ago. Haven't heard anything. Don't know what to expect to be honest!

Where your friend is located?
In some countries the prisoner has to burden the costs for the imprisonment if too much money is left on the bank account. If this is true for your friend, keeping (too much) fiat money is the wrong choice.

UK. He does plan on keepiing a little bit in the bank for living whilst in prison, you can earn money but it's something stupid like £2.50 a day. The crimes he is convicted of do not come with any possible fines. I think he is however worried about the government (or someone) getting their hands on his assets. Putting it all into bitcoin puts him in full control of his money regardless of it's value. That's one thing I like about bitcoin. I don't think we're talking about much more than £10,000. And I think most of that is cash Wink. He is worried about what to do with it I think.

A friend of mine is unfortunately going to prison for up to a year, possibly more. He told me he plans on putting all his fiat into bitcoin while he's away. Can't work out if that's a good idea or not, he said he may trust me to keep an eye on them and to cash them out if the price tanks. I don't really want that responsibility but am happy to help him however I can, if that's what he wants.

Do you think this is a good idea?

Personally I think it's risky, if he kept it in fiat then he would have the same amount of money when he comes out. He is clearly hoping for profit and sees that him not being able to touch them as a good thing.

Converting everything to bitcoin is definitely too risky in my opinion. keeping a percentage (probably 10-33%) would be OK IMO.
You also need to have clear rules on what 'tanking' means. you don't want him to be unhappy with your decisions when he gets back.


Yeah exactly. I don't know if I want that responsibility. Not sure how much money he's talking about either. I'm guessing around £5-10k

74  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: JUST HAD 0.92329 BTC STOLEN - HOW??? on: May 04, 2015, 07:32:11 AM
So is this a flaw in Electrum?

I don't think so. There are too many inconsistencies in this story.

 - The thief targets a small wallet (0.92 btc), and tags his transaction with "3lectrum Fail" on blockchain.info.
   A real a thief in possession of an exploit would target large wallets first, and he would try not to attract attention on his exploit.
 - The OP ignores my first request to publish his seed, but calls for donations instead.
 - On my second request, the OP says that he is concerned about the security implications of disclosing his seed, which suggests that he still has the seed, or believes he has it.
   However, less than one hour later, he said that he has deleted (and even shredded!) the file containing it.
 - When I asked the OP if he has paper backup of his seed, he says he has none. Yet, in one of his first posts he said "That's ll the btc I had"
 - The OP claims to be "very tech savvy". However, he deletes his wallet file, preventing further investigation.
   A tech savvy person would not destroy evidence just after being hacked.

So, either the OP made up that story, or he has no clue about security.


Think what you will. Never thought I'd be on receiving end of this notorious witch hunting Wink

Thanks

By the way, looks like this wasn't the first time OP said he got hacked:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=202087.0

Umm.... something suspicious is going on here methinks.

Here is a post he made another time his account got hacked:

The original minerd code is actually fine. You do have to realize that most antiviruses will flag it as a virus because of Botnet operators.

OP and second post seem to have downloaded minerd that was modified for YAC. If the source code wasn't posted, you shouldn't have downloaded it. Look into compiling source code yourself instead of downloading pre-compiled binaries. ALWAYS CHECK if source code is available.

Could you provide a link to the miner file you downloaded? The bitcointalk thread would be best. It appears as if whoever wrote that code (potentially YAC founder) did it to promote his coin. Did you guys look at the posts that were made to see what they said? Are they promoting the hell out of the coin?

TBH there's not a lot anyone could get from this PC and I am pretty reckless with this machine I'll admit! New installs are a regular occurrence.... Of course I was stupid to download those binaries, it's that whole human nature (greed) thing ya know?

Different PC, and my bitcointalk account was compromised through a session hijack. It's just got used to spam the hell out of the forum :/

This computer I'm using at the moment is very secure.

Please stop trying to taint my name. I respect this community and i'll be damned if you start calling me a scammer! Wink

Fuck sake. I sold my gopro to buy those coins. Unbelievable!
77  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: Can someone check this out. Is it a bug in electrum? on: May 03, 2015, 11:49:13 AM
I've already deleted that wallet, cleared it out and shredded it. Shit. Is there anyway to retrieve it?

The wallet is not needed. Did you have a paper backup of the seed?

No and I'm kicking myself for it. It was only a throwaway wallet/address.
