Suspected hacked account: - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=50315 - augustocroppo (this name can potentially change)

This account has not posted since mid 2014 then makes a thread offering to buy bitcoin with PayPal and locks the thread. Even more suspicious is the fact that it is somewhat known that VIP accounts have been targets for getting hacked ever since the forum was hacked earlier this year.

It's Password was last changed November 16, 2015, 12:20:25 AM and was not previously changed in the preceding 30 days.

Looks like it. Along with another donator account that hasn't posted since 2013, locked them both.

I remember seeing a member Donator signing up for secondstrade campaign after long period of inactivity, if you can check trash(if user deleted posts go there that is) you might wanna check that account as well.

I would think signing up for a signature campaign, especially secondstrade is more of an indication that the account was sold.

Also only deleted threads go to the trashcan (accessible to all mods) while deleted posts are only viewable to admins and need to be looked up by user and by thread (IIRC). So you would need to know the handle of the account to see the deleted post.

Searched all donators and the most likely "candidate" is : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=82948
I think I remember that avatar from secondstrade post as well
