There have been unregulated markets before, 13th century Bruges
 Wall Street in 1929
Junk bonds in the 80s
It's The Wild Wild West
Everybody's getting scammed
Then regulation creeps in
It's already happening to bitcoin

Did you get scammed for 5.5 BTC? Seriously?
You need to tune your scam-radar, mine is a little over sensitive sometimes, but better be extra careful then get your ass scammed.

I got scammed by bter and probably from a couple of dice site (likewise probability of an event 1:1.000.000.000) with few rolls....

What you can do ?
Firstly "disrupt" their business, with a thread like this, secondly try to call authorities, like police etc...
Then, you can wait but is really difficult get btc back, due it's nature you can't fight a good scammer, don't trust investment site , if an opportunity is good, yes it's smell of fake/scam.

did you get scammed by bter because of their wallet hack (at least what they said happened). i didn't follow the news afterwards to see what happened to them, but i see that their website is still working.
did they refund their users?

I was scammed of more than 60% of all my coins in 2013. I became dejected and thought about quitting the Bitcoin sector all together. But then, after a few months I realized that it was my fault that I trusted unknown people. How can I blame Bitcoin for my own mistakes? But I know a few people who quit the Bitcoin sector, after falling victim to the various scams (esp. the Mt Gox scam).

I never invested in any ponzi scheme because that is very strange to send money any unknown person for just hope to get back 2x, 3x, that is very sad to know you had lost 5.5 btc so are we really in 2015?

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

Yeah, we can do nothing except crying.

Hello buddies,

It would be sad story if our bitcoin get scammed.  Cry

But it does happen from time to times, as we are all human beings, we are kind of greedy, we all want more bitcoins, and we all want the bitcoin in our wallet growing and growing ...

Then, we may get scammed by some online games, get scammed by gambling, get scammed by some investment programs, get scammed by ponzi schemes...etc., we send them our bitcoin base on their promising promises, but after the payment we'll never get their delivery as return ...  and we may even get scammed by our best friends as well ...

I've been scammed by a ponzi program called Rockwell Partner, I was scammed 5.5 BTC there.
I could do nothing expect shouting everywhere it was a scammer.

What did you do to fight against the scammers when your bitcoin was scammed?

Sorry to hear that, be careful next time when you invest your BTC.

I would tell them that it's a bad idea to get other's bitcoin by scamming, then I would make a thread in bitcoin forums to warn people about the scammer so people will not be scammed

probably, as long as your country rules accept bitcoin as a legal currency

you ought to be thinking ripe for play or other investments that indicates scammed,
if you've already fooled you can do is just give up because it is almost impossible in cases like this will help the police find and arrest the perpetrators

Hello buddy,

Sucks to be you.  My bitcoin was never scammed because I'm not stupid enough to engage in Ponzi schemes, nor do I gamble.  If you got scammed by your best friend, well, you need to evaluate your concept of friendship.

That is true, last week I was looking to sell one of my senior member account, and the buyer asked me not to involve any escrow as escrow have their own charges, he said me that you give me user name and password and I will send bitcoins to your address, how can I trust him without knowing him, so whatever trade you do, involve escrow in it or else don't trade.
