I don't want to go into figures, but I placed quite a significant amount of money in a bit.ac wallet. I waited for the 'website renovations' (oh how naive- cringe!) to be completed and had no access to the site since July 31st. I followed the blockchain trail (apologies if that isn't the correct terminology, a bit of a newb here) and even I can see that the money sat in wallet for 26 minutes until it was transferred out. I don't suppose it will be making its way back.

I will, and have accepted it as a mix of my own naivety and some fairly low level human activity. Such is life. I will make the money 1001 times over, but that person will alway be a grubby, lying little thief. Although I understand that in some cultural circles this is merely the wolves preying on the lambs, and therefore perfectly natural behaviour.

It is such a strange kind of theft, because no one stole my bag and climbed in my bedroom window..and I will never have the opportunity to punch them really hard in the face for taking my things. In the real world it matters not if you are a wolf..as in the cold, dark hills of the bitcoin world, you will end up a fluffy, bleating, bleeding victim.

Lessons learned. I shall not be discouraged, but I will gain more knowledge and prevent any such mistakes in the future. If you have been burned, I feel your pain...if you are shaking your head at me...well, don't. hehe ;-) peace

@kurt0015

If you have so much information of this scammer, why you do not report the authorities instead of posting here in the forum, you know that this can have very serious consequences?

Imagine if some crazy makes revenge with his own hands?

And you have created an account to post this. report him to authorities.

@Slow death: Already reported..

Removed some information ;-) It was not my intention to make someone take revenge. It was my intention to stop everyone from doing business with this person.
So nobody else will lose any money.
