We already 4K yacoin for 1.8 BTC. But he created a fake Escrow.

Quote from: John (John K.)
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

The escrow address for nnuuij11111(the seller) and FocusMedia(the buyer) transaction would be:

1LLb35gvtADmhSQvskie5MKvNpFsaSqjtc - Bitcoin

Please state and agree to the conditions (if item is received damaged, item lost with tracking, customs fee etc) beforehand.

If possible, GPG sign your agreement to prevent any discrepancies later on and please ship with tracking to prevent problems during delivery. GPG signing is not a requirement, and any verbal exchange in the form of private messages or posts on bitcointalk.org, or email is effective as a ‘statement of condition’.

The fine print:
This Contract is solely generated for the purpose of facilitating the transaction between the seller and the buyer, which refers to the pseudonyms used on bitcointalk.org.
The escrow holder, John, assumes and gives no liability or guarantees on the satisfaction of all parties involved, although he agrees to mediate and facilitate the deal to the fullest extent he is capable of. On the event that any problems arises, he will release the escrow to whichever party that presents him with the most convincing proof and/or after an open discussion with others or theymos.
The verbal acceptance by both parties (or the failure to reject) and the sending of Bitcoins to the escrow address above constitutes the acceptance of the terms and conditions stated, and the activation of this Contract.

Please understand that I am assuming the risk of holding the escrowed Bitcoins, and I am using my own time to facilitate this transaction.
If possible, please tip me at 1NB1KFnFqnP3WSDZQrWV3pfmph5fWRyadz .

Thank you.

John (the escrow holder)

For anyone watching this, the scammer sent the fake contract to OP directly like in other scams. Thank god OP was intelligent enough to drop me a PM...

Well played, OP. I thought he had actually sent funds to that address.

He can log in, but cannot post/PM or anything. The scammer's probably checking to see if that account is active or not, and moving to his next account again.  Undecided

Related question:  Are scammer tags still being used?  When was the last one issued?
Thanks.

They are, since a few days ago. Only the admin can issue scammer tags here (otherwise I would've gave him one instead of banning), and he's currently MIA.  Undecided
