Response to locked thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137140.0
You asked how it could be a scam...here's your answer.
First of all, its interesting you locked the thread.
Second of all, the BTC address you have listed on your site for donations to the charity is
1B4pDiGiHkTAZvGsjWintcY3by6AvVSVLu
But, the address the charity's official site has for donations is:
1NoA98grVfXfVqysU4ijM9jhMBD8vmrUC8
Also, you stated you donated 30 BTC to the charity. As noted by someone, only 29.xx BTC had been donated to the charity to date. I believe a number of people made smaller donations totaling that amount-because who is going to donate 29.xx BTC-thats a strange amount. I asked for proof you sent the coins yourself. I was looking for a screenshot or something-nothing from you.

I am only making a "thing" out of this because it is truly terrible to run a scam like this. Any scam is wrong-you're taking people's hard earned bitcoins for yourself. But in this case, you'd be taking bitcoins from a legitimate charity, and thus people who REALLY need them.

I hope I am wrong. Please post a screenshot of you donating to the charity's address, and I will not call you a scammer.

Wow. siesatsu is a fucking scumbag. Just think by stealing bitcoins that would have gone to a legitimate charity, you are killing innocent children. Murderer.

Looks like a legit charity, but I agree that he's probably using it to front his scam. This topic probably belongs in scam accusations though.

Wow, well I guess you're right, he is-indirectly. Unfortunately whenever someone mentions donating to a charity people's red flags go up. Sad that its that way but it is. Some people have no conscience.

Yeah, I looked up the charity and it looks legit. But the OP I don]t believe is affiliated in any way with it. And you're right, it probably does. I just replied on here because OP did.

I gotcha. And yeah, he's not affiliated with them at all. His story of being "moved by them" was pretty damn flimsy.

First of all, its interesting you locked the thread.

I locked it because he had many duplicate topics. He's also banned (temporarily) for this.

I left this instance of the topic open:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137131.0

I agree that it seems very suspicious, especially since siesatsu is a new user and he was spamming his charity all over the forum.
