Hi all

This user contacted me via PM and ask me to contact him.

"Hey man i have sportsaccess account please add my skype: officialdecrypted@outlook.com so we dont have to wait 360 secdons."

After that I contacted him via Skype and agreed on a deal of $10 for a streamseasy account.

I have indeed transferred 0.0142 bitcoin to him.
After that he completely did not reply again on Skype and
Is claiming on his trust profile that there was no such deal.

Please be careful of this user.
If you really want to give him the benefit of doubts, please ask him to go first or ask him to pay for escrow.

I do not want any other member to fall into the same situation as me.

The $10 , I treat it as a handout to him to feed his family.
It is pathetic that there are some people that has to scam $10.

Screenshots? Raw text of the PM's?

Or... Just nothing but words. Follow the right format and submit some evidence or anything other than your words.
Otherwise, how is anyone supposed to believe you, a Newbie? (especially since your trade was completely confidential) It's your word against his.



OP is referring to one of two Decrypteds, one which is a Jr Member and the other a Newbie. There should have been precautions to such risky trades.

Hi.

I do have the full Skype conversation.
But it is a hassle to upload it as it is so long.
I knew I am a newbie and people might not believe me.
It is okay.

I am just sharing what I encountered.
I just hope people can be more careful when dealing with anybody on this forum.

Never thought that there are so many scammer here.
I will just stick to my list of trusted sellers in the future.
They are as good as anyone here.

I treat it as another lesson.

Let me stop you right there!

You think people might not believe me, but you're unwilling to upload the full Skype conversation? I'm not saying that it's unlikely that Decrypted IS a scammer, but if you really want to be believed, then you should show the evidence. If it's a hassle, just copy & paste it into pastebin for raw text. At least SOMETHING would help.

I am just sharing what I encountered.

Yeah, but we have no evidence. Obviously, not many people would trade with newbies without an escrow as insurance, but it would help to see proof.

Use escrow in all dealings, especially when you don't know who the other person is obviously.

Assuming you are on Windows, you can use keyboard shortcut Start + PrtScn or Ctrl + PrtScn or Alt + PrtScn (not sure which Grin) to take a screenshot.
You will have Paint on your PC, use it to black out things we don't need to know. C:\Users\usernamehere\Pictures\Screenshots -> right click -> Edit
