HOw scammy does this sound?

BTC-e offered me a first time buyer offer whereby I sent them 8btc to an address on the promise of getting 10btc back for helping to improve traffic.
I was talking via sykpe to "btc-e.support @ europe" and sent the coin last Weds (5 days ago).
I checked my address at the time on blockchain but there was no confirmations there, it's only just occurred to me this might be a scam

Have I been complete tool? Has anyone else experienced this offer/heard of anyone else having done so?

Man I feel sick...

"btc-e.support @ europe" is not a username. What was the Skype username?

That is not BTC-E's Skype username. Their support username is btc-e.support. Someone simply made a new account with ".eu" tagged to the end and robbed you. Please be more careful with your internet gold as giving it over to scammers gives them more reason to try.

This genius contacted me on the forums saying that he had bulk btc for sale. He mentions that he has 10,000 BTC asks for international money transfer as payment.

His skype profile says he is from cameroon and only has one skype contact (me).
99,9% this guy is up to no good

His skype username: bitexchanger

Good call. I'll add this one when I get in front of a real computer.

I made this list yday and since then nckfor has already been outted as a scammer. Look for scams forthcoming from the following users:

c1010010
Cereal
TCollar
Starmie
l0lface
bahehs
nckfor
BobsBurgers
XXthetimeisnowXX
gacbmmml

TCollar?  Really.  I am curious as to why.

I have not requested any money / bitcoin from anyone nor do I plan to.  I do not even ask for "tips".

I totally dig your scam exposing posts though so I am not offended that I am on the list.
