I just messaged you to do a deal with me. If you did it with me instead you know that I trusted to not do what this guy just did to you.  Roll Eyes
Even if I ask for a bit more than most do, atleast you would have your skrill with out any trouble and hassle free. Lips sealed

It seems people don't learn the lesson that you should never send bitcoin first.  The amount you sent is more than his account is worth, and thus it's profitable for him to abandon it or claim he was hacked.

If the original Backside walkaround can prove to me they are the old owner of this account, I can update the email address to the email address of their choosing.
Backside walkaround has lost access to their account as they used someone else's email address to sign up, and the owner of the email address got tired of random email notifications from this site after a few months and reset the password.

There is no real way to use what you have put up here and prove that the TX was between you and him.  You may be able to use PM's that you exchanged and such, but in a wide technical sense you and that Bitcoin address and not linked that I can see here.

Go back to school again and learn or stop posting only because you are getting paid few cents. Nonsense,its very clear as i stated in op,he blocked me,locked his exchange thread,i sent btc to the given address,i have the conversation record,you stupid can't see the tx id?he received btc from me,doesn't matter from which address I used for btc tx, from which school you learn about how to investigate a case?do you know this scammer MasonIII ?
Bring him here if you really want to contribute a little,otherwise shut up and stop interrogate for few sent.

Gently man without the cents, nobody is interested in your scam story, and do not forget that if you drop some cents to use the services of an escrow; you will avoid this scam.

Better thought out version. (Leaving original for transparency since this is sensitive topic in general).

I have regained control of my account and have sent a PM reply to everyone in my inbox that the hacker messaged while using this account. For full transparency, it seems that there were three transaction type things that were completed over the past few days by the hacker. They are with imbest, HiringYou, and PokemonGoArena. I will be addressing each case below. Hopefully the actual individual can also chime in and we can settle these situations. I use the word "seems" below because I am only able to infer from the PM's and posts made by the hacker on this account as to what occurred.

PokemonGoArena:

The topic seems to stem from this topic: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1612522.msg16200370#msg16200370

From the screenshot provided in the PM (included below) it seems that he/she sent $1 in BTC to the hacker for some service. Pokemon could you clarify whether that service was rendered along with some evidence if possible? There also seems to be some talk about servers which may be associated with task as mentioned above.

I will be happy to send the $1 in BTC upon your reply that this would be appropriate in rectifying the situation.

https://gyazo.com/be4d3684aff3689d8149539050b023b5



HiringYou:

The issue seems to be a WTB amazon GC where I was sent amazon gift cards and no payment was made to HiringYou as seen a few posts above. However, it seems that the amazon gift card codes that were PM'ed to me are invalid and therefore there should be no claim to repayment. I am checking via the gift card balance checker online (link included). If anyone has thoughts as to how the two seemingly invalid codes could actually have been valid; please let me know (via a reply on this thread ideally so I can keep everything transparent).

Please let me know if you have issues with how this is being dealt given what information I can find in my account. If there is any other additional information, please do let me know.

[2] Screenshot of PM with HiringYou including the gift card code: https://gyazo.com/4f200878ef5cfd899545238faa91e2e5
*Given that there might be the thought that I have doctored the screenshot, is there any admin that could verify it in my actual account? Please PM me if you are highly trusted and willing to do so.

[3] Amazon gift code claim link (to verify it is invalid): https://www.amazon.com/gc/redeem/



imbest:

You started this thread and have provided your side of the argument which seems to be a Skrill for BTC transaction. The claim seems to be for 0.0342 BTC or approximately $22. I have included the PM's below.

I will be happy to pay you the same amount of BTC (0.0342) if you feel that that would rectify the situation to your satisfaction. After the situation is resolved, could you please remove the negative feedback on my account as well.

[4] Screenshot of PM with imbest: https://gyazo.com/cfce294be2090349b62e888c9f74d255


If there is anyone else that has had issues/concerns regarding my account, particularly over the past few days; please post here or PM me (or do both) and I will try my best to correct the situation.

Regards

MasonIII

What do you mean by "I am back in control of my account?", So now you are telling that your account got hacked and now you got back your account. Can you give more details about when your account got hacked and how did you claimed it.

If this is what you are meaning by the full reply you have posted here. Then think properly because in this forum if any account got hacked it is very hard to get back.

were you really hacked ? if so then why didn't the hacker change your account's password ? i cannot see that your password was changed in the last 30 days atleast. you changed your password today just to look like you are back in the control of your account. btw, i think that you scammed the op and now you are giving this reason just because you dont want a red trust. it is a very bad act.

Equator,

I posted that quick reply immediately to try and stave off further concerns. I have just posted a more detailed accounting of my account's actions and the consequences that have resulted from the hacker's actions.

As to giving more details about my account being hacked. I do not know why the hacker did not change the password or anything, I just noticed that someone was logging into my btc-e account which sends me an email whenever there is a successful login. I also noticed that there were posts I did not make. In terms of claiming it, since neither the email nor the password was changed I just changed my password. If there are other methods of recovery and/or security, please let me know so that I can work towards fulfilling those steps and assuaging your concerns.

Edwardard,

I was hacked in the sense that someone used my account for actions I did not commit. I do not know why the hacker did not change my account's password. As I mention in my reply to equator, I just happened upon noticing the situation. I did change my password today (very very recently to this post) as that was the only method I found to "re-secure" my account. In terms of your opinion that I scammed the op and am giving this reason to avoid a red trust there are 2 main thoughts.

1) I have already received a red (negative) trust from him so I assume you mean to prevent other individuals from adding onto it. I hope that by dealing with everything in a transparent manner on this thread, I can fix this issue and ideally have those removed / provide enough evidence for future users to disregard.

2) I am offering to refund the op (and the other individual in which BTC was exchanged) after we can clear up the entire situation (as seen in the edited post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1611759.msg16200606#msg16200606). This was posted AFTER your post and I completely understand your thought process since this forum is largely anonymous and these situations occur quite often. That is why I am offering to refund the op and taking responsibility (as the amount puts it within my means monetarily) for my account.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns that I could answer and put to rest regarding the situation.  

Regards,

MasonIII

A last update on the actions I have taken (again, for transparency).

- Messaged everyone in my inbox over the past few days to notify them that their interactions were with a hacker using my account and that I am now back in control of it.
- For the three people mentioned above where transactions were carried out, I messaged them directing them to this thread so that we can correct the situation accordingly.
- Messaged the 4 people (aside from imbest as he falls into the previous point) who gave me negative feedback to explain the situation, directing them to this thread so that after everything is resolved to their satisfaction they could consider removing their negative feedback.
- Replied to the two posts concerning my statement of reclaiming my account and hopefully addressed their concerns.

For others who have doubts, please continue to share your concern and/or anything I can do to prove that I have reclaimed my account.

He blocked me right after he received btc from me,a wrost scammer,

Username: MasonIII
Profile link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=23779

Proof that he received btc: https://blockchain.info/address/1PCSpQPgB1MvePN3zVTXMzr6uxvycDpPcj
His exchange thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1611707.msg16189107#msg16189107.
His Addy: 1PCSpQPgB1MvePN3zVTXMzr6uxvycDpPcj


He blocked me a few minutes later




What I beleieve MasonIII is right. Because Why would he do such a act for only 21$ using his own account.
Food for thought bro @imbest. May be someone has hacked into MasonIII account and as he is Sr. Member.


My message to @imbest:
For more assurance imbest can ask admin to MansonIII's location activity (IP address) and check whether his recent ip coming from the same location or another.

I am posting this because 2 weeks back somewhat same kind of thing happened to me when I did tried to login paypal then I checked recent location activity find that someone did try to logged into my account but thanks to paypal they blocked him from accessing it as that ip coming from other region (Pali).

Message to @Admin:
     It would make bitcointalk more secure if you provide a 2 step verification process so that these kind of activity don't occur in future.


Message to @MasonIII:
     You should have checked your mail immediately when you find suspicious activity to your account.
Why didn't you immediately tried to login and check the activity on your account because trading are not done at same time you could tell report this earlier. Now create a strong password and remember to to check the email notification whenever check your email.

What ever you are telling is not believable because if anyone hacked your account in the sense you did not operated your account for some days and in that mean time the hacker hacked your account, but did not changed your password,

What ever the story you are cooking, i think the food is not cooked properly, because no one can digest what ever you are telling the reason.

what ever the main reason for opening this thread was that OP has got scammed and right now you are ready to clear the deal. Then i think this thread should be locked by OP if he has got his payment or Bitcoin which ever.

Hello MasonIII,

I'm sorry but I don't think you know how Amazon GC's work. I checked both Amazon GC's before sending them to you and they were both valid.

Of course they're now both invalid. After they are redeemed they go invalid and your 'hacker' obviously redeemed them right after I sent them or else there would be no point in scamming the GC's.

I have proof of receiving these on my email and only on my email by clients from Reddit.

I can also get Amazon chat support to prove these were valid but unfortunately you or your 'hacker' redeemed them.

Right after sending the Amazon GC's I got blocked by your account and couldn't send any further PM's.

I will be adding negative reputation and I will be opening a scam report if this doesn't get solved.

Cheers.
