Since it seems this thread is doing some damage for my reputation and since it's not quite clear apparently that I don't endorse scams and ponzi schemes, I would like to publicly apologize for this thread. This was a foolish, stupid and very arrogant thread. At the time I wrote this, I had fully fallen for pirate scam. it wasn't enough that I had fallen for this, I felt obligated to scream my stupidity at the face of the world because I really thought trendon shavers was legit and a victim of others people that tried to warn us of his scam.

This has been a great lesson for me, trust me. I had lost coins on this, I have not profited from this scheme nor do I plan to scam anybody with new scheme.

Sorry everyone

Raphael

------

Now that Pirateat40 closed down his operatations thanks to all the fud that was going on and growing on the forum, I expect everyone that spreads this fud, accused and insulted Pirate and the people that supported him to apologize.

Not only did Pirate brought us a great opportunity for investors (once in a lifetime actually), he did help stabilise and grow steadily bitcoin price, volume exchange, and thus contributed to the success of bitcoin. For that, Pirate, I want to thank you. You've done a wonderful work, and I hope you're stay around here.

Now, apologies on.

INow that Pirateat40 closed down his operatations thanks to all the fud that was going on and growing on the forum, I expect everyone that spreads this fud, accused and insulted Pirate and the people that supported him to apologize.

Do you really think that FUD is the reason why he shut down? Bullshit thread is bullshit. Don't count your chickens just yet anyway.

Of course it is. He needs large amount of coins to operate, why do you think he was paying 7% a week for?

Go read what he said, then. FUD is definitely not why he shut down.

If everyone turns out to get their coins back, then I'll be very, very happy I was wrong.

If he returns the funds it will be a boost for the bitcoin economy, 30k + coins now available for investment elsewhere.

The FUD was actually getting Pirate more investments, so you're very welcome!

Anyway, I'm hesitant to go one way or another on this until Monday.

Come on, he announced he is shutting down and paying back. What do you think he is doing? Catching the plane to Brazil this weekend?

And I doubt the FUD lead to more investments.

Well, I for one AM SORRY.....but I never spread FUD.

Pirate was well aware of my problem and the fact that he stated in his closing thread that he has been in contact with his lenders over the past week, letting them know what was happening....only serves to strengthen my claim. I was ignored.

Quote
I’ve spoken with my clients over the last week and come to an agreement that would allow me to close down my operation within a week.  Currently my reserve (operating wallets) are drained from fulfilling the withdraw spree that happened after the rate drop announcement.  All withdraws at this point will be delayed until Monday when the shutdown process begins..

If I had received some of that COMMUNICATION, I would have been more than happy to keep my mouth shut, but it was the LACK OF COMMUNICATION that I simply couldn't take any longer.

Sorry things didn't work out for everyone.

I doubt he spoke with his lenders, even the largest ones.

Ah, if I had a bitcoin for every scammer or dupe who blamed the failure of their doomed scheme on negativity, on all the nay-sayers who pointed out the obvious warning signs.

I will apologize publicly if all funds are returned.
I doubt this is going to happen somehow but I still won't apologize. If you invest all your money in something that's literally indistinguishable from a Ponzi scheme and somehow, against all the odds, you've managed to get lucky and invest in the one Ponzi-like scheme out of innumerable others that's somehow not actually a Ponzi, why should I or anyone else apologize for telling you that you're an idiot. After all, you still are - just an idiot that got lucky.

I will apologize to pirate if he was not running a scam.  However, if I see anything like his operation pop up in the future, I will not hesitate to call it out as a ponzi again.

+1. I think it's honest for people to have been calling it a ponzi, and I'm happy that people were urging caution w.r.t. pirateat40. Live and let live Smiley
