sold 1.5 BTC and got paid $459 via PayPal.  The payments were reversed. I investigated the address i sent the coins to and many coins were going to the same address, meaning no way for them to know who to pay. What is worse, there were many attempted double spends from that address.

http://minerscenter.com/

here is the address:

19CrVPsyhvTM431kN5A3xJ5f6ux5gphgF9

blockchain.info suggests this is sketchy at best. record of attempted doublespends:

https://blockchain.info/address/19CrVPsyhvTM431kN5A3xJ5f6ux5gphgF9


this is being advertised on marketwatch:

Never actually heard of them but on your behalf I've informed their support/chat agent , you may hear from them soon if you yourself haven't informed them about this.

So I guess this is the right time to say "I told you so".
What business could ever be profitable by buying at a 10% surplus?

If it sounds too good to be true, it is.

Sorry, but no " sorry for your loss " from my side. This was the most obvious scam I've seen in quite some time, here.

.edit:
It wasn't only advertised on marketwatch. Though those were paid articles by the owner, just the same as you can buy articles on Yahoo finance.
I contacted some of the other sites this scumbag had articles on and demanded deleting of the articles, which one of them actually did.
Guess it want enough. Greed is just too strong.

.edit2: their "chat agent" is the scammer himself.

UPDATE: The payment wasn't from some business, but from a personal PayPal account. When I asked the chat agent why the payment was reversed, he said it was an anti-spam measure from Paypal and not him. He then repaid from a DIFFERENT Paypal account and the funds are still in MY Paypal account, but I'm not touching them.  I went back and asked him who got my bitcoins, the first person or the second share person. His/her response made no sense. He responded that Miner's Center got the coins as both people were investors.  HUH?  How does that work? "Investors" pay differently but share "profits" equally?

I rechecked the recipient address from a blockexplorer and BTC is still pouring into it and being taken out just as fast.

The chat agent/scammer kept trying to reassure me by claiming this is a real business in Delaware.  Delaware is the state where anybody with a P.O. Box can incorporate.  It was less than reassuring. I told him I was going to wait before selling him anymore because I was uncomfortable with the risk of doing business with an unknown entity.  He said the special promotion was going to end on Monday.  Yeah, right.  There's always some reason not to do due diligence.  I can't absolutely say for certain this is a scam, but it's sketchy as hell and I wouldn't recommend selling them any more coins than you are prepared to write off.  The other risk is you might get your Paypal account shut down.

When I kept him busy yesterday (told him I was going to sell him 900 BTC, lol), the special promo offer was ending in two hours.

Really, anybody even considering to send BTC there must be seriously lacking a brain.
Also, if you use the bank wire method to receive money, prepare for the police stepping up at your door - if you actually receive the money at all. There is no way the bank accounts being used to paying are not stolen, and you guys are being used to get the money out of those accounts using a non reversible payment method.

Don't touch this crap. It's obvious it's a scam.

As expected, the repayment from Paypal was reversed today.  This is almost certainly a scam.

"Almost certainly"? You're kidding me, right?

Just read what they're offering, and without further thinking, you know for certain that it's a fuckin scam.
