Contacted me, wanted to sell 20 btc for 50.00 each lol.

He insisted I wesrn union him 250.00 then he send e coins, then I send the rest.  Really? Lol

I offered to pay full price and also pay an escrow.  He refused obviously.

Do not trade.  I'm sure he will be back with a new account later tonight.

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

WORST.

SCAM.

EVER.

As a general rule, it's insanity to send money for ANYTHING via Western Union up front. That's Nigerian-level scam.

So he PMed you out of the blue?

So he has a marketplace thread or something? Maybe link the post you found him at - gives some context.

Lol western union, that's funny

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.
