This site still legit? ... I sent funds for a escrow tx, and they are still showing up as  0 funds received...even after 7+ confirmations on the network =(...

Verified payment address correct ...

EDIT: nm, it just was flagged as received.... looks like it took 8 confirmations or something...

anywho, hope rest of process goes smoothly =)

READ THIS.

Have I lost my funds due to a loop hole in btcrow.com terms and conditions!

EDIT had a message from btcrow.com

Quote
No, you won't lose your money.

We do not release escrows automatically after the inspection period.

So I guess its a waiting game, Question is how long do I wait to see if the items actually got shipped?

I wish to thank btcrow.com for rapid replies to my messages. Also please note, I am not attacking any party involved, Those that know me, Know, I have seen more than my fair share of scams, I am merely seeking the truth and trying to make the BTC world a little safer for us all.

what happens if buyer gets product, marks as received too, but doesn't release escrow for the seller?

do you have some sort of auto escrow release?

We don't have an auto release feature.

For this situation the seller can request release of escrow. This will send another email to the buyer with instructions of how to release the escrow.

If the buyer consistently fails to release and does not raise a dispute we will manually release the escrow.

Is this site safe enough to do a 3.85 BTC deal? (like $1500+)

They saved my butt on a BTC7 deal in September so I would say yes!

I used this site once a few months ago. There were technical difficulties at the time, but the support staff acted fairly fast.

Ok so I emailed the address I actually
Recieved original emails from and got a response 30mins later. Unsure if that was coincidence or not. Anyways I think its just a small error from site nothing more. Just get nervous with that much coin action floating in space. I will update soon as I hear something or receive coins. Btw it was same email as when buyer clicked ok to release funds only this time the exact amount was listed unlike the original email confirmation.

Site is still legit !!! Got my coins, they did take a while as I mentioned from the last few posts. Sorry for the multiple replies, but if anything this just gives BTCrow more built up trust. I can say I would use again, shit happens sometimes, understandable. Thanks BTCrow for coming through.

I'm fairly certain your site is being used by scammers, similar to this post: https://localbitcoins.com/forums/#!/fraud#craigslist-scam-for-knc-jup

I contacted a Craiglist seller that insisted I use BTCRow for escrow even though we are planning a face-to-face exchange. Here is a copy of the complete email invoice he sent me, which looks pretty legit at first glance. I'm sure it's a scam, I just wanted to post it here to make sure and perhaps raise awareness if it is.

So.... is this really from you?

There has been a CL scammer trying to spoof btcrow.com emails. Most email providers flag these emails as junk because the sending IP does not match our SPF record.

Pattern the scammer uses

1. Selling mining hardware on Craigslist for BTC.
2. Sends a BTC payment address in a spoofed email.
3. Misspells the victims email address (e.g. user@gmaii.com) so their intended victim does not receive the genuine btcrow.com email.
4. Sometimes uses a fake BTCrow.com page (on free web hosting) in order to fool victims.

We have posted simple security tips prominently over BTCrow.com. Following these tips will ensure a safe transaction.

The most important factor is to confirm details of your transaction on BTCrow.com. We have added a page where the viewer must type their email address before viewing a transaction. This ensures the viewer's email address matches what we have on record.

Unfortunately some people have been scammed by this person. Most of these did not follow the security precautions or did not visit the BTCrow.com site to check if the transaction was genuine. They simply sent bitcoins to the BTC address in the spoofed email.

Has anyone had luck with them lately, used them for a TX last Friday, released funds Saturday as I am the buyer.. In any case seller still doesn't have the BTC and is obviously getting very concerned either I or BTCrow.com scammed him.

My buyer had to actually go back and release funds a 2nd time, unsure why it didnt work 1st time. I recieved letter confirming funds were released but they never appeared, buyer got back on and repeated procedure to release and they showed up in under 24hrs.

Just wanted to follow-up and say it went well, due to the amount (over 5BTC) a manual verification took place but it was released when they did it..
