Now I know Monbox is a 1000% legit escrow. Well this "brand new" user is trying to set him up for a huge scam.
He sent me this...
!!! WARNING: This user is a newbie. If you are expecting a message from a more veteran member, then this is an imposter !!!

Hi 12Bananas21,

Ill take the 5 bitcoin, payment by Western Union.


Escrow is a must for me to keep the transaction safe.

I suggest monbux for escrow -

He is on the forum approved Escrow list:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=855778.0

monbux profile:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=133846

His feedback from previous Escrow trades:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;u=133846

If you want to trade let me know and ill drop monbux a pm with all the details for escrow.


Thanks,
John.



Well obviously I'm not stupid. He must be. I smelled scam because I got almost the EXACT SAME message from a scammer a week ago saying this...
!!! WARNING: This user is a newbie. If you are expecting a message from a more veteran member, then this is an imposter !!!

I'm selling 2.6 Btc at 1:1 Btc-e rate. Cash deposit. 5/3. Escrow I'll be used here or Lbc

Ill take 2.6BTC if you are willing to use Escrow.

I suggest monbux.

monbux, he is on the forum approved Escrow list:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=855778.0

His profile:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=133846

His feedback from previous Escrow trades:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;u=133846




Well go back to the first one...
So I responded "okay let's go".

He then sends this...
!!! WARNING: This user is a newbie. If you are expecting a message from a more veteran member, then this is an imposter !!!

Just had a pm back from monbux -

Hi MrWDune,

No problem acting as Escrow for your currency exchange.

Can you please forward the link below to my main Escrow thread on the forum to the 12Bananas21:
"Link removed"

@ 12Bananas21 when you have sent the BTC to the Escrow address in the first post in my thread please pm myself and the buyer the transaction I.D

@ MrWDune when you have verified the funds have been sent you are safe to send payment to 12Bananas21

@ 12Bananas21 please pm when you have received payment so I can release the bitcoin to MrWDune

Cheers,
monbux


Obvious I see a link and click it... Well just in case he changes it... The link is NOT A BITCOINTALK LINK. So I've taken the pleasure of screen capping it with my iPhone :-)

So yeah. I'm tired of this. The two users are

Please remove the link in the quote from your post in case they throw up a phishing page. Yeah, people here actually fall for that.

Phishing page /fake escrow page appears to be gone now but who knows if it's gonna be readded.

Its the same guy who tried and was successful(in scamming 1+ BTC) in impersonating OgNasty, must've boosted his bloated ego.
