It was mentioned that people are scamming trying to get you to use their own "business escrows" or having you pay for shipment before going to escrow.  I think this person who is named "Min3rking" on bitcointalk tried to scam me.

Here is a screenshot of our skype conversation:  http://prntscr.com/gz2van.  The format looks strange because I deleted his contact and blocked him after our conversation.  I needed to use a 3rd party tool to open the skype logs.

Here is a screenshot of the PM's he sent me on bitcointalk:  http://prntscr.com/gz2w1o

Here are his previous posts on bitcointalk:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1211064;sa=showPosts.  Notice that he says he has antminers available for Nov/Dec batch in his posts (which would mean he doesn't have them yet), while in his Skype conversation with me he says that he has them in hand already in China.

Your post should not be in this section, you should move to the scam section

I think you should also use the appropriate format for scam accusation
