I've been around these forums for a while. I mostly just read and trade. I don't post much.

I feel I've learned scammer behavior quite easily, as it's pretty predictable.

Forum user Lecture was selling some 800 point microsoft cards for slightly under market value. Link : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=210347.0

I offered even less (lowballed him) and he instantly accepted. Okay, great deal...

I then realized he was someone that literally just reigstered, so I asked him to either go first, or use escrow. Boom silence, after seeing him log in and out after that message.


I then went through his previous posts, He is attempting to sell stuff without escrow (someone even complained about him not accepting escrow), and has even took out a BTC loan from somebody.

Come on guys, there's red flags all over this. I hope it turns out he's not a scammer and he didn't get anyone (lecture if you are legit I apologize), but I just thought I'd point out the obvious before people deal with him and take realistic precautions before you just hand someone money.

Hmmm. My spidersense is tingling too, but should you post names here on a suspicion ?

It's called scam accusations, not "maybe scammers"

Well I didn't see any post rules stickied so I just went with it.

I'd rather put a warning up so at least people are aware they should trade smart with the guy.
