I need to make a purchase but I am 2.3 BTC short. I have cash but of course it's late on a Sunday so it's impossibrruuu! for me to buy any BTC right now.

Is anyone willing to lend me anything up to this amount? until tomorrow, possibly Tuesday?

It's literally a case of me going to the bank - buying BTC - paying you back. Simples.


Thanks.

Ben.

2.3btc is over $100.  Would you give $100 to a random stranger on the street if he promised to pay you back in a couple days?

If it's that simple why would you need a loan? Just wait a few days for the funds to clear.

No, but I will happily provide proofs (ID, Utility Bill etc.) if requested, I am fully aware of what I'm asking for yes. I don't want to taint my name on this forum at all as I've got some ASICs on order and this is the place to be  Wink

I'd like to think there's someone out there that is 'rich' enough (in bitcoins) to lend a few though.


Tell me where to stick it by all means, I figured I had nothing to lose by asking  Embarrassed

Pure impatience I guess  Undecided

8 posts?  How long would it take you to abandon this account after you don't pay back $100, make a new account and write 8 posts?

A: Not long.  A very good hourly rate.

Valid points, I've had this account since (late) January and only made my first posts recently. (It took me a long time to rack up that 4 hours  Cheesy)

At the end of the day I can prove I am a real person if anyone is willing to lend. I'm not scammer - innocent until proven guilty? I guess I'm in the wrong place for me to use that line Wink

Anybody seriously considering loaning to this guy, just donate .1 BTC to my sig and It'll be like you just recovered the 2.2 BTC you would have lost.

There's a really horrible attitude on this forum.... I guess it's for good reason though  Undecided

What is everyone's problem?

I asked a favour, all you have to do is say no. Job done. Huh

I do obviously understand the cheek of just straight up asking to borrow $100+. I'm going nowhere though so hopefully some trust will build somewhere down the line.... When/If my ASICs arrive I imagine I will be in the position to loan a couple of BTC here and there Wink but of course you/we are all scammers here (apparently) so I guess I'll just hold on to this 'trust no one' attitude and keep them all for my greedy self Cheesy

Thanks.

Quite the opposite. Only a very narrow segment of forum members are suspected of being scammers. Out of sheer coincidence (?) 99% of them post here in this subforum. But don't take my word for it; look at the list of people who fit the profile of a scammer vs. those who also fit the profile but actually ended up completing a successful loan. Out of all the people who fit the profile, there's been a grand total of four (yes, FOUR) who have successfully repaid their loans since I started keeping track.

wow, that's some really shitty statistics....

I guess I entered the game with the wrong attitude but as I say, I'll be here for a while, I will learn your ways Wink

Plus I went out and bought (gasp!) my 2.3 BTC this morning so it's all gravy baby.

blockchain.info.

It's the easiest way for me, not too bothered about the fees (1.97 - 3.97%). Best option in the UK I reckon - I can just send money using pingit via my phone and I have BTC in my wallet 5 minutes later. Not too shabby...

It's not you man. There have been soooooooo many scammers here that the default position is to assume you are a crook. Even though I have a *high post count and have been here a while, I think i would be grilled also. It's not personal.
