This man: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=94037
seems to be suspicious. He requested loan from me, in private message, "for funding new HYIP program".

Very useful info. I only joined the forum 3 days ago. Since then I have made about 22 successful transactions for currency exchange. Sadly, another 5 were scammers who stole my payment in various different ways. I will list them when I can discern the right place to do so...Good learning curve, anyway

From an experience I've just had, always be suspicious of people who have taken out several loans at once and they haven't taken steps to repay, chances are it's a grab and run strategy.

On this note, always ask if they can provide collateral.

I seen this guy trying to say you're a scammer, lolz. Had you gone through the reputation thread? Scammer galore.

I have, but it's gotten to the point that it's hard to keep up culling all the potential scammers from honest traders. Can you edit out your quote from me plz? It was just a misunderstanding and I'm going back and editing my knee-jerk responses. Thanks man Smiley

I think the very nature of Bitcoins are an invitation for scammers looking for easy payout.  Glad I read this, thanks for posting.

The number of "old" members scamming seems to be much higher than newbs scamming. I have been scammed by a so called "veteran (Hero Member)" of this forum and I detected 3 more "old member" scammers in just a day of posting in the Marketplace. This forum should have a much better feedback/trust system as right now it seems out of 10 members , 9 are trying to scam (account age no bar)
