Hey PG,

I just read the majority of the instawallet claims thread where you requested your 1132 BTC from 3 different addresses.

Did you not keep a copy of the transaction where you sent 1000 BTC to the large address?

If not, was it funded from an exchange? Surely there was a deposit address on instawallet.

I'm neutral in all of this but I can't help that bousac (or whatever) and davout have treated users with such disrespect by not giving information on the auditing party as well as the police report # etc.

Shame.

I'll do what I can to post on this topic and create my own threads should I have enough to work with concerning the matter.

You know me I love calling out scammers and pussies who can't help but be lazy and steal from others.

Hey, bud. I still feel bad for us not getting a photo together in LV.

After InstaWallet came back online, all three URL pages didn't have bitcoin wallet addresses on them. Eventually, the 1Jpp... wallet did appear after I submitted the claims, for that one was well documented on this forum, but immediately two claims were made against it, thus it could then be red-flagged, to be refunded, if ever, at a later date. Initially, davout denied the claim, but upon presenting the exact same info via email, I was reunited with those funds.

The other two I don't know the addresses because InstaWallet has been withholding that from me from day one. Without the addresses, I can't trace back, albeit that may be a daunting task, for even with the last transaction I preformed with the 1Jpp... wallet to a known address, InstaWallet somehow put layers of transactions between the two that today I've yet to unravel after spending several hours on that task alone.

The only thing that comes to mind is that davout, acting as CTO of InstaWallet, created or borrowed a clone from Mark Karpeles some sort of tumbling software. I have been able to find a myriad transactions going in and out of Bitcoin-Central, then in and out of davout's main bitcoin wallet address, of which 1,384.35491053 BTC can now be seen here: https://blockchain.info/address/16d1yGrEDqSY1xhCnAUWrkahGY2mkWdAYk.

Prior to the "hack", David didn't have much, yet, after the "hack", he ends up with more than what I once had. Ironically, he knew which three wallets I had prior to the "hack" by simply looking at the IP address of whence the wallet on record came from. Once he had that, he announced to the community that we was going to be outta pocket, of which time frame the "hack" occurred on April 1, 2013, and not returning to the forum till the 18th, leaving Boussac to create, than maintain the InstaWallet claims thread, of which they have now conveniently closed, in spite of one of their non-customers (they honestly believe that InstaWallet didn't have any), me, still having two major claims with them, having expressed such since the onset of said claims thread.

To date, the independent auditor has yet to be named. Probably because there fuckin' wasn't one. Perhaps, in a year or two, Boussac will link the name in the French section of this forum like he did with the police report after it was asked for close to a hundred times in spite of him having an official InstaWallet claims thread open.

Again, anybody having funds in the Bitcoin-Central exchange best get them out ASAP, for the clock is tickin' on that son of a bitch going down. I'm pretty sure that Gilitt is still waiting for some return on their $400K VC investment, of which they witnessed three other entities built then crashed and burned. Paymium only has one entity left - Bitcoin-Central - and that ain't looking too hot from what I've been hearing through the grapevine.

PG,

Perhaps I am not understanding something....how did you get your bitcoins into instawallet? Did you transfer them from an exchange etc?

This would be the first place I would think to show account ownership based on how the account was funded (via BTC).

Sorry if I am not understanding this.

BTW perhaps we will meet up at another BTC conference and we can get a photo! That would be awesome!  Grin Grin Grin

So, what you're saying is that the following depicting Paymium's financials is inaccurate?
Not really - it's just irrelevant if you want to know Bitcoin-Central has enough reserves in both bitcoins and euros. Paymium could be bankrupt, but still close Bitcoin-Central properly and refund all its users (or not, if they don't have the reserves).

For euros, look at Lemon Way, and for bitcoins... no way to know for now.

And since the only information is from 2012 and only has percentages... I'm not sure what you can even think of the state of Paymium. Many French companies don't send their financials, or somehow Societe.com (which isn't an official government website) doesn't have them.

I'm seeing hard figures, not percentages: http://www.societe.com/bilan/paymium/533264800201212311.html
