Hi everyone I'm really greatful I found this forum I'm more knowledgeable than I was when I impulsively bought this amazon gift card code with the promise of a transaction that would give me BTC at market price. A guy on Localbitcoins had set up a local transaction that he wouldn't escrow and kept insisiting that I just send him the claim code. After that I was contacted by JakeZ who I believe also tried to scam me. I told him I wanted to do the transaction with an escrow service he offered to go through BTCrow I received this email as "confirmation"
Hello,

It looked suspicious to me I couldnt find a transaction ID to verify with BTCrow so I didnt send him the codes out of fear I was being scammed I now have a 350 dollar Amazon Gift Card physical card purchased legitimately no funny business would just like to get a  decent amount of BTC in return for it. If any senior members can help me out I'd appreciate it

I can't tell if this is a scam accusation or an offer to sell. If you're trying to sell the gift card, I'd go to the digital goods section and post further information there.
