I am not going to do it.

Someone will.

It WILL place heat on this guy whether you think so or not.
So, how much did you invest in pirate?


Welllll, I had about 80 - 100 BTC invested in Pirate through BTCMAX BEFORE he dropped rates.

Once he did, I cashed out completely.

THEN, I decided to make a few small investments in Bitcoinmax and another derivative security. These total under 10 BTC.

I've been a ghost on this forum for a while but have just signed up for an account. After severely pissing off the first person I came into contact with here today (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=93252.40) I thought I'd try and contribute something to this forum by researching pirate aka Trendon Shavers aka Don Shrents who's probably in Nigeria by now having swashbuckling adventures on the high seas with all your money ahaaaaa!

To do this I've cross referenced what we know about Trendon Shavers with the internet and I'll take you through the results step by step:

Firstly what do we know about him:

-He lives in Dallas Texas (source https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=47173.msg563605#msg563605)
-His name or alias is Trendon Shavers
-He's got involvement with gpumax and some other ponzi scheme (sorry I didn't bother to research the name)

OK so if you do a google search for Trendon Shavers Dallas, you get several links to a company called Business Cognition.

We know this is his business for several reasons

1) Their Website went down the same time he defaulted whatever you know what I mean (the last cached copy of www.buscog.com is dated the 14th of August) http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://www.buscog.com/&hl=en&prmd=imvns&strip=0

The who is data for www.buscog.com shows the following http://www.networksolutions.com/whois-search/buscog.com

      Shrents, Don  support@buscog.com
      Business Cognition
      5100 Eldoardo Pkwy
      Mckinney, Texas 75070
      United States
      +1.5738736366

Don Shrents is an annogram of Trendon Shs (the missing letters aver are an annogram of Vear (Vear is a village in Vestfold, Norway, located in the municipalities of Stokke and Tønsberg. Of its population (2005) of 3,520, 1,256 reside in Tønsberg and 2,264 in Stokke))

GPUMAX is also registered to Don Shrents http://whois.domaintools.com/gpumax.com

Summary of what Business Cognition does:

At Business Cognition we understand how rising expenses can affect your bottom line. We use the power of our client base to provide you with the tools and services required to both optimize your expenses and maximize your profits.

5100 West Eldorado Parkway #102  McKinney, TX 75070
(888) 929-1117at

Source: http://www.merchantcircle.com/business/Business.Cognition.LLC..888-929-1117

This suggests he uses a combination of pooled money and bullshit to fuck about with money in some way. BTW the cached version of google was blank grey if anyone wants to search using the other major search engines you might find a decent cached copy of his sight that's a bit more enlightening.

Little more than a year ago a Dallas user by the name of Shrents was complaining about $1 a month being expensive for something and letturing a company on doing "Ethical Business"

Michael Thalasinos http://www.linkedin.com/pub/michael-thalasinos/54/a8/396

Summary, he's either used an allias with the people from this community or an allias with business customers, his main business which has been running for 4 years disappeared at the exact same time all your money did!! He hasn't paid any money back, he suffers from narcissism and he's only 30...... good luck!

You may or may not be able to call him about this on the telephone number above or this one 9729844673 or this one 888-929-1117! source  http://www.directorycentral.com/business/tx/mckinney/business-cognition-40132719.html and the link somewhere above!



Seems the cache is no longer working for me.  Anyone take screenshots?

I'm not sure why paying out everyone at once will piss anyone off (aside from the ponzi trolls).    If everyone gets their money, then great Smiley

[2012/08/26 19:03:35] <pirateat40> I'd just like to say, I never expected all this madness when I shutdown BS&T.  It's been a lot more work than I could have even thought and I simply messed up. In hindsight, I shouldn't have stopped things so suddenly. Although it was nice to finally get some sleep, things have been spiraling out of control this week and pushing my personal deadlines.

[2012/08/26 19:06:09] <pirateat40> At this point and in an attempt to stop the bleeding (interest) I'm going to be forced to payout everyone at once, which I'm sure will piss off enough people to counter the lack of payouts but I don't see any other way of handling this.

[2012/08/26 19:09:47] <pirateat40> My concern is not "winning" the bet as much as it is "donating" the winnings.  With the events of this week causing delays, 5K worth of coins is a piece of sand compared to the amount of money I'm losing every hour.

[2012/08/26 19:13:46] <pirateat40> I'm doing everything in my power within the contracts of the "Real World" to get things moving as fast as possible.  If, I end up losing the bets and spending everything I worked for to make things right I will.  I will not be giving any additional times or dates until I know exactly when things will happen.

[2012/08/26 19:17:40] <@pirateat40> I know you guys want updates and communication, but I'm somewhat muted by the personal attacks and legalities of whats going on. There is a lot more to this story than just "Send me back my coins."  If I had all the coins just sitting around I would've has this wrapped up a long time ago.

This is good news for the true believers. They will always be able to dream of getting their money back.

Why would one need to payout everyone at once (after two weeks where interest has increased the amount owed by ~$1M) in order to stop the bleeding?  We is paying 1% per day on the oustanding balance.  The way to reduce the bleeding is simple ... pay down some/all of the debt.  The quicker and the more he pays the less capitalized interest he accrues.

Hypothetically if Pirate had paid 100K BTC on Friday it would have saved him almost 10K in interest so far.  
Hell Pirate claimed to have 30K in personal (non ponzi) BTC.  Using that to pay down the debt early would have saved him 3K in BTC.

Even weirder is why he thinks that would that piss people off "Oh man I got my money all at once... grr."

I hope he had some really good dreams; it has and continues to cost him ~$2,000 per hour.
