Just found this thread in the Beginner's & Help board, member Tonnes is directing people to export their private keys as a way to obtain their bitcoin cash. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2063572.0

What a scam!



I'm a believer in users of bitcoin understanding what their doing, a free market, let the buyer beware. But this is just senseless poaching. As the popularity of Bitcoin has risen so has the influx of new users who aren't educated that sharing a pass phrase or a private key is like handing over the keys to your vault to a stranger.

We need to fight these people! Spread the word to the newbies you know and share the negative trust to those who are setting up these scam posts!

I don't get it. Why would you call this a scam?

What is wrong with his tutorial? He is only helping Blockchain users to export their private keys, so they can have access to their BCC with a compatible wallet, like Electron Cash. He is not asking people to send him those private keys.

It should give a negative trust because i saw some  many newbie are promoting bitcoin cash right now and i heard a lots of bitcoin holders their bitcoins are gone after they export the private keys in electron cash. And also i heard that Satoshi never said they made a new coin and i think they are just adding a piece of code(segwit)
Hope they can take action about this issue because more ignorance are become victim and scam about bitcoin cash that actually are useless..
As you can seen the price right now of bitcoin is increasing and more stay use bitcoin because this is the only bitcoin that made by satoshi nakamoto..

Just to prevent new comers to export their private keys to electron cash that many of us never get back  their bitcoin after they import the private keys in electron cash..

What? Even if you disagree with the ideas behind Bitcoin cash, it is real. And you can't call that a scam.

Where are those bitcoin holders claiming that they got robbed after using Electron Cash? I haven't seen one single comment about this issue. What I saw, was people using Electron Cash to dump their BCC in the market, which they actually succeed on doing.

And also i heard that Satoshi never said they made a new coin and i think they are just adding a piece of code(segwit)
???

Just to prevent new comers to export their private keys to electron cash that many of us never get back  their bitcoin after they import the private keys in electron cash..
And where exactly is the proof of that? I have used Electron Cash and so far I didn't got hacked or stolen by anyone.

I was  looking for the thread but i can't found the post but there are some thread telling electron cash wallet is fake or scam
Like this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2061056.0

And some thread like this one looks like his bcc was sent automatically look at this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2059091.0

Since never tested it and i just collecting information from other post i confused if i can trust BCC or not..  Sorry about telling bcc is scam but i just honestly confused if its safe to import my private keys in the eletron cash that until now still not tested yet because of some post about BCC wallet.

But now i saw some responds from others and looks the wallet is already been fix with a new version of eletron cash..  i apology about this post i'm just delay reading back the old post that i read..  and i just want to be careful about importing the private keys because i was using it for a long time..

No scam here.

The tutorial is identical to the method explained here:

https://github.com/OmniLayer/omniwallet/wiki/Exporting-Private-Key-from-Blockchain.info-and-Importing-to-Omniwallet.org

Learn, read, research and think before crying scam.

Alright, I take it back. Totally sorry for my overreaction. I was only trying to protect others who have been scammed via the exact same type of tutorial. Next time I'll do more research before making accusations.

Sorry Tonnes!
