Here's the link someone posted claiming it was another person's profile.

http://%22%20https//bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=865791

It looks sketchy so I'm asking if I should move my bitcoins. I should right?

Looks dodgy to me.

legit links light up green when you hover the mouse over them

correct profile link to the person:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=865791

known scammer with lots of negative trust

Well not screwed. The URL is encoded with some ASCII . %22%20= " (" followed by a space).

You can decode the URL here : http://ascii.cl/url-decoding.htm

It's just a mangled link, someone probably used the [url] bbcode wrong. If you follow link after this part - http://%22%20https// - then you will go to the trust page of wantt0sell.

Thank you for that sir. It seems it was just an error on their part. I moved my coins into cold storage anyway but whatever. Thanks guys! False alarm! I won't be clicking any random links anymore. I was on a phone so I can't hover.
