just saw this on twitter. Sending anyone your wallet.dat is NEVER a good idea.

Noted.

I saw another one a few days ago where they claimed they would encrypt your wallet for you. Can't say I have the link anymore (Genius, I know...)

tl;dr Don't send your wallet.

http://allofthem.net/bitcoins/

lol - "verify your wallet" - why in the world should it not be valid?! Cheesy
Nice try though - it is almost like "Send me 1 BTC and send you 2".

Well, as soon as the internet is involved a lot of people stop thinking and then this scam will work (ie "adding personal info to some profile for everybody to see", "showing all your 'friends' where you throw up last weekend", ... Wink )

For kicks, I renamed a 150kb jpg to wallet.dat.  This was the response:

Code:
YOUR BITCOIN WALLET WITH HASH d40a5e9f0e87bc7c32782f8aa349e6b861307b9c IS VALID FOR 2011-06-14T06:28:20UTC

Phew!  Glad I got that one sorted out, I was afraid my wallet wasn't working right!

Right, never send your wallet to anyone, except if you want to send bitcoins to them.  Keep many backups, encrypted especially if online. Savings wallets should always be offline (on computers that never touch the internet).

The best part is, this was the jpg:



So if he is trying to figure out what the file actually is, and renames it to a .jpg... well, he'll know that I saw what he did there.  Tongue

With so many stupid people all over the internet, I bet he probably already made some (if not a lot of) coins!

I should start one of those myself  Grin  [/not]

This is very encouraging to all the new miners who believe Bitcoin is a scam.

Where there is money, there will be cut-purses.
I can't believe this primitive method could have success.
