I haven't clicked the thread yet, but I'm going to take a wild guess and say his account was just created recently.  How far off am I?
How did you guess that? /sarcasm

as soon as i read the word romania I stopped reading.

Odd! That's the point of which I wanted to read further, for I knew it'll be good. Besides, the universe of people wanting such a device is limited: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=139704.0

Excuse me !?

just do some basic google research. the country of romania has slowly and steadily building a terrible
reputation for online crimes since the year 2000. from ebay auction fraud, online blackmail, scam websites,
etc.. you name it. when you have talented programmers and comp sci people unable to find good work...
well some turn to the easy money online crime can bring.

If you do a specific google search using terms as Romania and cyber crime you will certainly have the results you want, the same way you would find "relevant" results if you use terms like Romania and alien sightings.

On the other hand if you use terms like top online crime countries (I did what you asked for) you find top results like:
http://tech.ca.msn.com/the-worst-countries-for-cybercrime
http://www.forbes.com/2007/07/13/cybercrime-world-regions-tech-cx_ag_0716cybercrime.html  >>
http://www.forbes.com/2007/07/13/cybercrime-world-regions-tech-cx_ag_0716cybercrime_slide_2.html

A nice graphic by Symantec:

from: http://www.enigmasoftware.com/top-20-countries-the-most-cybercrime/

According to those US is still number one while Romania is not even mentioned.

I have no doubts that if you search deep enough you WILL find Romania mentioned in this context because is true that we have an increased number of cyber-crimes like many other countries. We also have an increased number of reports of alien sightings.

While I am convinced myself that the Romanian ASIC is a plain (and naive) scam your dismissal of it just because it came from Romania is just a case of prejudice against a country.

After I did my "basic google research" at your suggestion I found out that US is the most involved country in online crimes (online blackmail, scam websites, etc.. you name it).
 
Should I have the same prejudice about US or should I just use my common sense?

I guess you're not aware that Romanian is the second language at the Microsoft US headquarters. You can imagine we also have top workers at Google, Yahoo, etc. so employment is not a problem, at least not for IT. Don't be so shallow and do your homework when judging a whole country. bASIC has scammed us big time, you don't see people say US is a cybercrime country, although its in the top like philips showed(yet not so correctly considering US computers are being hacked and used as proxies)

Just a quick factcheck: all of BTC finance currently comes out of Romania. This is because all you Aussies, Brits, 'Mericans and so forth weren't smart enough to do it, and so MP had to come do it for you. Chillax on the jingo bs, it's out of place.

I will just leave this here.

http://www.wired.com/magazine/2011/01/ff_hackerville_romania/

But yea, stereotyping a whole country is not very nice. But a lot of people do it for safety reasons.
No different when I sell on ebay and stereotype a whole countries postal service as terribly bad and
refuse to ship there. So if anyone is offended I apologize but this scam was just so stereotypical
I chuckled when I read the romanian connection.

How funny, but so far, most of the scams come from USA. Pirate@40, bASIC, etc.. We should do a list by countries then.

The question then becomes who uploaded that and what was his ulterior motive. One might think for instance of a situation where someone would upload content like that explicitly for the purpose of then accusing the hoster of hosting such content.

For the record, the only thing I ever saw on that chan were escorts advertising their services.
