12 hours passed still no payment.

theirs any chance to ban this person?



Scammers aren't banned on this forum, they're given red trust by DT... Altough it seems very odd that somebody with green trust would scam for $60. On the other hand, he's still a member. I have no idear how much his account would be worth, given the positive trust he got from a DT member.

BTW: this is the account of free-bit.co.in : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=341170
BTW2: it would be nice if you followed this scam report format: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=260073.0

Much better Smiley

There are a couple things that might happen:
  • this might all be a big misunderstanding... 12 hours isn't a long time... Maybe he had some computerproblems, or didn't agree with some of the terms or something... Maybe he comes online and fixes the problem
  • somebody from DT might come online, look at your proof and PM's free-bit.co.in. If he can prove he did send the account, nothing will probably happen. If he can't prove anything, he "might" get red trust from a DT member... If this happens, two things can happen:
    • He might decide his bitcointalk account is worth more than $60, and he sends you the steam account to get the red trust removed
    • He might decide his bitcointalk account is worth less than $60, and he doesn't send you the steam account, making his bitcointalk account worthless

This seems to be the estimated value of such an account (light green member):
http://www.bctalkaccountpricer.info/?token=m5tr6ptp   => 0.03426638BTC ~$22 at current preev rate.

I hope it's all just a misunderstanding, but it does look his account is worth less than the sum you sent him  Sad

I dont know how many times it said on this forum, but escrow is the only way to go.

You choose without any reputable escrow person that can act like a third party then you will find these situations too often.

The beauty of escrow is esp with digital products / if it was bad - then you show the proof of the escrow holder so they know whats going on.

I had a problem with my PC.HDD died,I bought a new one.

As my old HDD died and there was all login info for steam and gmail (changed to new ones, not his old ones) I can't access that steam account.You should definitely contact steam support to retrieve your account.

I didn't want to scam anyone or had any intentions of scamming.

Again, I'm sorry for the problems I caused you.

My HDD died on July 3 and I bought a new one on July 5.It wasn't fixed, I had no warranty.So,I just bought a new one.

I'm sorry that I caused you this problem.
