WARNING: SCAM

Quote from: anyroll
YOU HAVE WON THE 10 BITCOIN GIVEAWAY!

Your Number Guess Was Closest To the Selected Number, Making You The Giveaway Winner!

Out of the 800+ number guesses I received your number was the winning one, now that's some damn good luck!  Cheesy
Hopefully this surprise has made your day truly epic, and I hope you spread some of the good fortune from which you have received to others.

I've been sitting on a few still valid BTC-E redeemable codes that I would prefer to use for this giveaway. Send me a PM on the exchange and I will fund your account
ASAP. https://btc-e.com/exchange*

If for whatever reason you don't use BTC-E message me here and we can work something else out. Please make sure to let people know you won my giveaway, I'l be making a new thread revealing the selected numberand il send you the link to verify you recieved the funds.Keep your eyes peeled for my next alt-currency giveaway coming up!

Cheers!

* address has been changed, originally http://btceexchange.comze.com/exchange.html (DO NOT ENTER YOUR USER+PASSWORD HERE, DO NOT!!)

I got this pm today with a link to the address above. The page was a 1:1 clone of btc-e.com. It is a fishing pm, ignore it or report it to admins.
If you go to a website, ALWAYS check the url. Check it twice! Never enter your username/password on a page which url doesn't match to the original one.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

Sad thing is this is going to work with some people. Just like the viruses where it says if you pay X it will clean your computer. We should have an open source application for bitcoins that blacklist scamming website adresses and ips. Might do something about that soon, open source of course.

Yeah we had this awhile ago newbies should always be wary of links like this, I almost got caught out because the guy was actually asking people to post retrieval addresses and everything so it seemed more legitimate than the usual cons but when they start asking you to create accounts at places that's when you should think twice.
