I thought the same thing at first, but...

If someone robs a supermarket, and you help them out in doing so, are you at fault?
If someone sets fire to a house, and you help them out in doing so, are you at fault?
If someone steals a bunch of people's money in a ponzi, and you help them out in doing so, are you at fault?

Your logic is flawed my friend.  This would only be accurate if he had prior knowledge that it was in fact a ponzi scheme. As far as I know, there is no evidence to support that.

Even the dimmest bulb knew it was a scam after time had passed. Those that kept selling and collecting for the scam are just as culpable as the brains behind the scheme.

Yeah, that's an even better argument than the previous one...There is absolutely no way to prove this.  It's an assumption, and last time I checked, assumptions weren't considered legal evidence.

Then the choice is that the guy you're dealing with is either an idiot or a crook.

I don't think that the act of running a pass-through, by itself, is scamming, as long as the pass-through details and risks were disclosed appropriately.
I disagree. Running a PPT was paying Pirate to make you and your investors the recipients of obviously fraudulent transfers of other people's money. If that's not scamming, what is? But as I've said elsewhere, I'm willing to give PPT operators who aren't on record as saying they knew or suspected it was a Ponzi a free pass this one time. But in the future, I will be holding people to a higher standard.


Been tented to give you a lot of +++++ for that.

But they , at least in the case of bitcoinmax are still running ponzis themselves........if you see the facts, "Running a PPT was paying Pirate to make you and your investors the

recipients of obviously fraudulent transfers of other people's money. If that's not scamming, what is?"  am really completly shocked about your itellectual corruptness and

ignorance to make those other people whole again.  Intellectual abetter and abider of theft i´d call it.

Of course you can´t see your own prostata to be incontinent this time again Wink

Are you sure you want to resurrect this dead body?

There's already a whole lot of fresh corpses we can make forensics into now...

Somebody could make a funerary, that would be bitcoin's killer biz, excuse me for the redundancy...  Cheesy
