Hey everyone

I'm new to the forum and I'd like to introduce myself by telling the story from me trying to purchase bitcoins via PSC: Recently I tried buying bitcoins via PSC (CHF)...I got a couple of offers but everytime I sent the code, I never heard anything again yet the card is still valued with CHF 150.00.

Has anyone ever tried to buy bitcoins via PSC? I am still sitting on my card with the feeling of having wasted money because no one wants to cut a deal  Cry And those trading-sites are extremly expensive in my opinion.

Kind regards

How did you get scammed?
Would be interested in knowing so that we dont make the same mistake- these con artists are really tricky and are always coming up with new ways to screw people over...
On a different note- the actual topic of the thread - i have never had a problem using the paysafecard, granted i have never tried using it in this forum (i am new), but on amazon, itunes, steam, etc it works flawlessly!

How I got scammed? That is why I say I am stupid, really stupid!! He wasn't even tricky.

1. He was a new user, registered for about a day
2. He asked me for the code to send along with my bitcoin-address
3. I asked him if I could give him just two of my three codes first to see if he is a scammer (why didn't I send just one? or a cheaper one? ^^)
4. He told me he would use a bitcoin-anonymiser and it would take a little longer

and yeah, never received the coins - why the hell did I trust him? That was plain stupid, and I always thougt "no way I am gonna get scammed" haha yeah  Grin Learning something for the next time

Oh and he said he would give me 9 BTC for about $160.00 and that wasn't suspicious 'cause it costs right about that amount on MT.GOX

edit: Question: How would you trade with PSC? Make an escrow or what? That is what confused me and why I trusted him I guess...

Use escrow. Better still, trade with someone trusted.

My BTC Tip Jar: 1Pgvfy19uwtYe5o9dg3zZsAjgCPt3XZqz9 , GPG ID: B3AAEEB0 ,OTC ID: johnthedong
Escrow service is available on a case by case basis! (PM Me to verify I'm the escrow!)

oh man... sorry about that... not a nice experience.. and definitely not a cheap one!
I ask myself why there isnt a way to just buy BTC using the paysafecard directly, instead of having to go through users... isnt there a store or something?

Aparently, matonis has asked Paysafecard and got an answer here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=61517.0

Seems like they "would not be able to control" what the money is being used for. But I don't get it. Since when is this their business? If I bought soap with PSC and sold it for something else, what's the difference?

Same reason Paypal rejects anything related to bitcoins. "They lose control"
