I am surprised as to how many people are willing to invest in obvious ponzis and other similar scams. The reason these ponzi's keep popping up is because people are so willing to gamble that they can ROI prior to the operator of the ponzi running away with customer money

OP, the best thing you can do is to learn from the mistake and do your best to not let it happen again. I'm sorry you lost money.

It may not make you feel any better, but when I was new to the community in 2012 I was scammed for 3 BTC by someone on this forum pretending to be a homeless girl. Then I was scammed for 50 LTC by someone offering some crazy return per week.

At the time it wasn't much money but now I look back and I would definitely enjoy having 3 extra bitcoins and 50 LTC.

I take much less risk now. Think long term, not chase after quick profits.

Sorry to hear that you got scammed ( or you made it up)! Anyways, A scammer scammed me 0.4 BTC at 999dice and this is what i did Tongue


You cannot do anything since the nature of bitcoin doesn't allow to reverse transactions!

The pics are funny, but I guessed crying did not make sense in this case.

Call me Natasha or Natasia; No risk, no gain; if you would like to GROW or RISK your bitcoin on high yield investment programs, here's a list of Paying programs http://investspot.biz/BitCoin-HYIPs.html  Be always warned NOT to invest what you can't afford to lose in any kind of investment activities.

Because there are only two categories:
1) people, who want earn more profits for their investments
2) martians

Just ask yourself why are you here, in bitcoin community?

First of all I will never invest in a Ponzi scheme.
Secondly I don't gamble with bitcoin at all.
And if I have to gamble I use Facebook to play games with virtual money,so I have no fear of losing my money.

Bitcoin isn't a Ponzi or gambling. It's a casino chip. Casino chips just hold and transfer value. They don't gamble. They can't play a game alone. They don't make bad investments. But, without them all those sins can't happen. Casino chips and Bitcoin are facilitators. They make the process of committing crimes easier. They are just like guns. Guns don't kill people. Guns just lay there being a hunk of metal. Someone needs to pick it up and use it to sniper the people in the shopping mall. The gun is just the facilitator that provides the ability to be a psycho sniper.

All i would do is learn from my mistake. Warn others about it. Try to retrieve back my coins. If i fail to do so, i would move on and be more careful in future.

This is the answer I've ever heard.
Are you drunk or fall off on your head Huh
Bitcoin is a currency that can be used for anything. It's not just gamble or a Ponzi scheme.

Not me. I do not want more bitcoins. I am sure that they will cost nothing in nearest future.
I can prove it and wrote it number of times in this forum.
But you do not want to listen.

I try to not give up. Running after the scammer until i find him and i get my coins back. Or sent him to jail.

Of course that makes only sense when the amount scammed is reasonable.

Be nice if everyone would report the spam from this "Marcy" - they appear to be spamming enough to have hit "Senior Member" level in post in an amazing under 1 day JUST spamming every thread all over.

Oh, really, but I guess most bitcoiners are here at an aim of earning more bitcoins.

Latest ponzi--Ethereum  Grin

Wow man, that's crazy! I thought the same.
And we were saying in one other thread that people are cashing out, hence the btc price collapse of these days. I don't know if that is connected but it seems strange.
