After a public post to a moderator, I get this in my message board.

Hi fastdice.com,

Thank you for following the auction rules and contacting me prior to placing a bid for advertising on Bitcointalk.

I am willing to accept your bids but ask that you place the amount bid in the below Escrow address :

1GqeP38r2hfAGKUYfxxxr2YbfJs9TTCt5u (Changed)

If you are successful at winning advertising slots the funds will be used for payment, if you are unsuccessful then the funds will be returned immediately.


AFTER I CALLED HIM OUT, I GET THIS


enjoy multiple neg feedbacks coming your way.

people will avoid your site like the plague by the time im done.


IS IT A EMPTY THREAT OR IS THERE SOMETHING THAT HE CAN HARM MY PROFILE?
IS THIS PRETTY COMMON?

Empty threat, report these type of accounts here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1147644.0
Even if he does post negative feedback on your account, it will be considered as a troll retreat by any sane person. Just have a look at some of the negative trust on my trust page, or Vod's or an active DT member

Yes, it is common, you can always report them in the meta section, can you reveal the username of the person so we know who it is?

According to the modlog, no he wasn't, seems he didn't have any posts. Stupid scam attempt to say the least.

I've had pretty much the same thing happen to me. I left a negative trust on a similar impostor (probably the same guy operating all these impostor accounts) using my main account and received the following PM shortly after:

Quote from: BITMAIN `
Kiss your account goodbye.

I am about the neg the shit out of it over the next few months with everything from newbie to sr. member accounts.

Through enough shit and some sticks.

Should have kept your fuckin nose out.

Nothing ever came from it though, so I wouldn't worry about it. Just report the message and it'll be dealt with it.

Thanks for feedback.
It all started from here
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1253630.0

User posing as the auction holder.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=661490

Then private messages and assume more will come. I assume he/they are lurking in here daily to find their suckers

For reasons coming up, I have to keep a high quality rep so a bit concerned.

Thanks all again.

I reported it to admin, But will add to the post you say.,.

He's already banned. Doubt he will follow through with his threats as all he would do would be expose his alts for others to neg bomb. Even if someone does send you unjust negatives they will be untrusted and without validity most will ignore or disregard them.
