>With regard to BTC refunds, I have sent all refund requests to Tom for processing.  I have also processed all credit card refund requests at this time.  I can't guarantee that the funds were there to back these refunds - I have no way to know this, and Tom never confirmed having done the bank transfer.

At this point, if you are thinking of sending me a refund request, I recommend you do a chargeback instead.

I will continue to update the community with any new information I can provide.

I don't know anything about it.

I don't know who Tom is.

But someone grabbed some money and ran.

The only ASIC scam was Butterfly Labs and all others were just shills operating in behalf of BFL to make ASIC market look legit.

Just as sure that Pirateat40 was going to scam from beginning.

The people who preordered any ASIC are strangely silent. It reminds me 1 guy 1 cup video. They by now probably realize how badly they are screwed, but they still remain completely silent while picking out shards of glass from bleeding rectum.

Yes it is especially if you know the video

Hope this pic is safe for catholic parents. Kids are used to this stuff on internets.

To be honest I expected the situation to be much more dramatic by now. Or maybe this is just the calm before the storm?  Smiley

Actually this is normal psychological reaction of humans. Ignore the bad news as they don't exist if it is possible.

And I was afraid that I did not preorder the minirig with bitcoins and bank loan. I even told some gangsters about possibility to make BTC for their needs and considered having few minirigs operating. I was so right to talk them into waiting some time to see how actually they perform.

Like someone's sig says, everything about bitcoins is both a scam, and legit at the same time. Until you open the box.

I am a pragmatist, and fully believe BFLabs will send you a weighted down box. Until I see pics of people that actually get the chips, then I wholeheartedly will believe they didn't scam anyone.
