Nice, very funny.  It seems you have a decent number of people posting on your site already.

The link in your sig doesn't work, by the way.

How nice of you to dilute my two chances of winning with several more weeks worth of competition, instead of honoring your word and then starting another contest.

The "B-B-B-but Mt Gox got hax07'd" excuse was old a week ago.

If you advertise a contest and induce people to make purchases based on it, you really should keep your promise, and not renege because of some other site's problems.

Otherwise, your project may deserve to gain a reputation for being a scam (or at least, scam-friendly) site.

As I was just saying,

Quote
I should have used an escrow system like ClearCoin, but foolishly wanted to support a new bitcoin start-up ASAP.

I should have known better than to trust a conflict-of-interest riddled deal, whereby an operator of the site would act as a participant in their own system.

I hope somebody else avoids my foolish mistake, and avoids doing any kind of business with the scam site ForBitCoin.com.


Here's what happened (screenshots available if anyone cares to see them).

Dude posted this youtube.com/watch?v=kuxlU1u5y8A showing off his silver, and offering to sell it for bitcoins on forbitcoin.com.

Seems legit, right?  So I send him 15 bitcoins, $450 worth at the time.

Instead of sending me the item for which I've just paid, dude waits around and starts bringing up shipping options, never mentioned in the original ad.

By the time we get on the same page, the price of bitcoins has plummeted, and the price of silver has risen.

Now dude expects me to eat the losses he incurred after the sale of my item.

I tell him that not how it works at eBay works, or any other lawfully regulated point of sale.

He ignore this and keeps trying to extort more money out of me, using my silver bar as a hostage.


Dude is going to have some fun in the FBI party van.  Then the US Postal Inspectors will have their way with him.

If there's anything left (remote, but non-zero, possibility) then I'll take him to court myself, with a civil suit.


Brad Mills seems like a decent guy, though he still hasn't sent me the silver coin I paid him for over a month ago.

I don't know how he got mixed up with the Chinese silver scammer with the Tennassee ID, but he should sever that relationship for the sake of his own legal liability.

I can understand the Canadian postal strike causing delays, but this is absurd.
