Just a "heads up" on this case......

I have just received  an  encrypted email, one where I had to log into THEIR system to read the email and reply.
the Bank have been following this case/new-site & the forum.

They are STRONGLY of the opinion  that a 'Card replacement' is in order for any CC related to this case.
Since the original cards were processed and the 3 digit security number was supplied to validate the transactions, there is nothing to prevent the CC being re-billed or the card details being 'used' illegally.
Since the details  (address & cardholder details, card number & security digits) are in the possession of a 3rd party

Might be worth cross-posting this advice to the threads in the Custom Hardware forum, too.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Hopefully Citi has contacted whoever provides the merchant account and filled them in.

They can also sell the numbers on the blackmarket.

Was this out of the blue because of suspicious activity on your card, or is it just SOP is cases like this where a chargeback has been done and the cardholder says that the merchant might not be reputable?

I got a email and call from the bank as well, they couldn't tell me exactly where the card numbers were compromised from or what even happened for that matter, but i thought there might have been a connection. I have also been issued a new debit card (the one I used to pay for my bASIC). They said that they will update me with that info once the investigation has been finished. If there is a connection I will update.

I want to wait a couple more weeks and see if any progress is made.

There's no hurry in this case. He can't even access his account, so a scammer tag isn't going to help anyone (other than making some people feel better).

Can you explain the "He can't even access his account"?
Has his account been locked?

His account was compromised a few weeks ago, so I locked it. He needs to send me a PGP signature or some other strong identity verification if he wants the password reset. I've exchanged emails with someone claiming to be him, but he hasn't sent me a PGP signature yet.

Tom has a history of losing access to his machines by getting hacked.

Hmm.. real shocker here.. he's obviously screwing over a lot of folks, but let's go ahead and slow roll this one some more.. 

True, that tagging him as a scammer for forum users to see is sort of moot at this point, but why he still gets any benefit of the doubt is still amazing, regardless of what he has done in the past.

I still don't buy the compromised/hacked account crap either... perhaps it should be "account is suspended due to being an incompetent drunk".

Bottoms up!

I think this is my first scammer accusation. I don't believe he did this on purpose but the fact of the matter is he not only stole my money; he absolutely fucked my chances of being an early ASIC adopter.

So, his user name was immune prior to changing it to Cablepair. That explains why he's used it elsewhere on the net.

security problems are going to be the end of bitcoin users who can't protect our own investments. And I'm not even talking about files that are broadcast across the world via web, I'm talking about my own personal computer. How fucking stupid are some of us?!

Bold, just about sums it up.

From the last post of the same thread:

Quote
further more not only have I made right on that situation but I have also conducted thousands of dollars in positive transactions on this forum since then, there is not a single person on this forum or any where else that can call me a scammer.

That being the case, guess it's time to close this thread.
