Introduced in this thread and this thread.

I probably should have given it a little more time, but decided to take a gamble since I hadn't seen one of these sites offer $50 MPs before.  Sent to the address given with this transaction.  The transaction before that to the same address is by user bithanz, who purchased hours before me.

Considering it's the very day the site "opened" and the site simply pockets the BTC, never confirms receiving it, doesn't respond to email asking what's up, and most importantly, doesn't send the MP, it looks like this one is a scam right out of the gate.

I probably should have checked the shady whois information first.

Anyone else notice the these two people have roughly the same Last Active time?

They were both online a few min ago.

I recon he used a dummy account maybe to transfer his own BTC as a trap for anyone else.

He's Online atm. Has he even contacted you about this?

*edit* just seen I put the same address, corrected now.

I do see that the posters in that thread are mostly noobs.  The accused is a noob.  I will now take the time to point out to any and all that sending first to a noob is a stupid thing to do.  Even if that noob has a website.  I am not saying that to cast aspersions on anyone, I'm certain none of you meant any harm but for the sake of the community PLEASE DO NOT SEND FIRST to a noob under ANY circumstances.

This site, suspected to be the same as the accused, has disturbing anti authority sentiment and poor use of English.

To be fair, without admin help we cannot even connect that this "Marc" is the accused.  I do not want to spread any more FUD.

We have until the end of the month of March to pay the bills, im trying my hardest to come up with the most useful programming articles for anyone and everyone for free. But just because i give them away for free, doesnt mean it doesnt cost me anything.

Im asking anyone that has some spare bitcoin to donate it, and im willing to do this "Kickstarter" style, with benefits. The links use Mt.Gox, which is the largest bitcoin payment processor. I may add other links for other forms of payment later.

Other Payment Methods:
Bitcoin: 1CcfS9atFAReCaGeYvEwmuV1Ft6wvCGgPm
Dwolla: 812-576-3590

Flexcoin: 1LGV7XDpFrBEAas5oo8Fhik8x3ZXJCh2zK

The site also has several articles about jquery which is used to program websites, like the accused appears to have done.

Good spot, as far as I can see it is him or at least the same person who has set both sites up, he's used the same nameservers on both sites I have linked him too, which I suspect is a shared hosting account where you can simply use shared hosting by registering a domain and pointing the nameservers at ns1.x10hosting.com & ns1.x10hosting.com (looks like that is a free something or other).
