To fellow users of bitcointalk.org,

I haven't been on this forum for very long and I have already encountered more scammers and scams than I have ever before. I've lost about $500 already through several scammers on this website which led to the creation of my list. Though this will not fully put an end to scams, I only hope to control it to help out the bitcointalk community. please put this list to good use.

This list will be updated over time.
Here is a list of scammers/potential scammers I've encountered on bitcointalk.org:

Scammers
elliwilli
Accusation: Escrow service is a scam
Story: Initially provided an "escrow service" and stole $358.75.
Proof: http://imgur.com/a/t6Fvp

Potential Scammers
ghibly79
Accusation: OP might have sold the original account.
Story: Contacted me on Skype asking to send BTC first in a onevanilla trade and then asks to send half (both are extremely common OneVanilla red flags)
Proof: http://imgur.com/a/3245r

Impersonator on Skype was not actual user.

If you wish to contribute to the list, reply below with a story, amount, proof, and accusation.

Reason: Initially provided an "escrow service" and stole $358.75.
If you did trust someone with $350, just for the sake of them having ONE trusted feedback, you've been acting carelessly.
As I can see neither the old owner (and of also not the new owner, asuming it has changed hands) had been trusted with any kind of money before.
Their sole feedback came from doing a job, for which they probably have only been paid once it has been completed.
In no way, the user had a reputation sufficient enough to be trusted with several 100 dollars.

I agree, it was mainly my fault but at the time I wasn't very familiar with how much of btctalk.org were scammers.

Usually most people go with a minimum of +17 feedback or higher.

Depending on what amount value of course..

Which are people usually like dannyhamilton or someones been around for awhile.

What's the skype ID (not the name showing) you added? Doesn't sound like ghibly79.

You asking HIM to send first is also a red flag. ID or address usually means nothing here. Just something to keep in mind  Smiley

Someone contacting you on skype (not through a bitcointalk PM), pretending to be member_xyz over here,
without any confirmation from the actual account, most likely isn't that person.

Does this topic not belong to the reputation section because there is not a scam yet

Man, you got contacted by some impersonator on skype. It's written on top of my international thread in red capital letters not to trust that channel and always verify through other methods it's me.

Regards.

I apologize for that. Thanks for clearing this up with me and also learned something new.
