Hi.
I'm one of the staff members at HexPay.org, and we have recently been notified about a scammer who has scammed a lot of users from this forum. All his products have been removed, and his accounts banned.
We will compile all information we know about the user in this thread.


Know usernames:
rottenfruits https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=809527
jackshephard  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=816171
sir.morninglight Huh
rAISellers https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=832420
splitups https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=812963
tonguetides https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=810722
romanticks https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=810733


Emails:

I seems his original email is:
personwithemail33@gmail.com

And after this he created a new protonmail for each scammer profile
BattalgiaTR@protonmail.com
splitups@protonmail.com
mr.infinity@protonmail.com
sir.morninglight@protonmail.com

IP Addresses:
Seems he's sudanese, or living in sudan since all his earlier accounts have logins from a mobile ISP there.

Hi.
I'm one of the staff members at HexPay.org, and we have recently been notified about a scammer who has scammed a lot of users from this forum.

It's not just this guy. It's many. In fact, I'd say the overwhelming majority of users on this forum who use such autobuy link sites as yours are selling either hacked or non-existent stuff. It's become rife in the Digital Goods/Invites sections.

5 out of 6 of your accounts were created together here,along with many others.
Some of the other accounts on this list are also selling same stuff here, untroubled by mods and admin here.


I have added 4 more farmed accounts to this rota list.
(found zupdawg and 3 others. zupdawg sig for 1xbit. scam. Who is their manager?

Make that 40 accounts all on the same rota, registered over 11 days. Probably more to find.
Hope it is becoming clear to everyone what is happening here.

Okay I've tagged all of them. I'm sure that he/she will be back with more accounts though.

I'm well aware of that. The same things happen here. Maybe you should consider holding the funds until the buyer has confirmed receipt. That would significantly deter scammers. If these scammers get the funds instantly then it's prime for abuse.

Okay I've tagged all of them. I'm sure that he/she will be back with more accounts though.

They were all already banned apart from splitups.

It's not just this guy. It's many. In fact, I'd say the overwhelming majority of users on this forum who use such autobuy link sites as yours are selling either hacked or non-existent stuff. It's become rife in the Digital Goods/Invites sections.

Unfortunately it's hard to police since when we receive reports of a scammer, they just create a new account and recreate the scam products.

I'm well aware of that. The same things happen here. Maybe you should consider holding the funds until the buyer has confirmed receipt. That would significantly deter scammers. If these scammers get the funds instantly then it's prime for abuse.

Okay I've tagged all of them. I'm sure that he/she will be back with more accounts though.

They were all already banned apart from splitups.
Hi.
I'm one of the staff members at HexPay.org, and we have recently been notified about a scammer who has scammed a lot of users from this forum.

It's a free service, we don't have the resources to escrow payments, nor the time. It works fine on other forums.

Code:
Correct - It's up to the buyer to make sure the seller is legit, and sadly due to the poor moderation and terrible features of the BTCtalk marketplace (who thought it was a good idea to let noobs self moderate sales threads!?) scammers will try to get your money.
Many others use our site with no problems, and on forums where scam reports are not ignored and the marketplace is moderated it works a lot better.
Lately, we have written some code that finds a lot of these GC scams and hopefully deletes them before users purchase them.
