Escrow.ms got arrested.

The busting of an international syndicate of debit card cloners on Tuesday has unearthed the use of bitcoins to avoid detection. The money siphoned from ATM machines was converted into the cryptocurrency and distributed among the people involved in the crime.

Pankaj Bhardwaj, operations manager of a bitcoin trading firm in Pitampura, was arrested on Tuesday, thought the crime branch is still on the trail of the suspected kingpin, Sumair Sheikh, who is believed to be based in Dubai. Since the accused had access to crucial information related to the ATM cards, the cops also suspect a bank official's role in the racket.

Pankaj Bhardwaj was part of an India based bitcoin exchange. They have evicted him as well...

Quote
"Bhardwaj revealed to us that Sheikh would procure data related to debit/credit cards through his sources," said DCP (crime) Bhisham Singh. "His associates would clone the cards and withdraw the money and send it to Delhi. Sheikh instructed Bhardwaj to transmit the money to Dubai through the bitcoin route."

Quote
Bhardwaj has confessed to having sent Sheikh bitcoins equivalent to more than Rs 30 lakh in the past four-five months. The police also recovered cash totaling Rs 8 lakh from Bhardwaj's house.

New people won't get scam by this culprit. He is well known escrow and got huge +ve feedback, so don't believe and loose your amount / bitcoin. he is in jail now for cloning ATM cards. This is Cyber Crime.

Just a warning to all people.

Question the OP if you like, but from what I know it was common knowledge that escrow.ms was working at coinsecure and that his name is Pankaj

You can't say that every forum member that offers escrow services is involved in cibercrime, because that isn't true. Just because a tree as some bad apples doesn't mean that all the apples in the tree are bad

Mmmm hmmmm.  And this thread is about one particular rotten apple, escrow.ms.  I don't think anyone here was making a generalization about how corrupt the escrowers or default trust people are here on bitcointalk.  Master-P might be the other huge exception, but these are exceptions not the rule.

This topic has already been discussed a lot in this thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1359877.0
So I don't see any need of additional threads to discuss on this matter

Edit : You got negative from escrow.ms. So that's why you are bumping this matter in order to remove him from DT, right ?  Grin
