Hi guys,

I was searching for some information about a scam that was pulled on me two days ago; I sold one bitcoin on ebay, got paid with paypal and sent the coin, then immediately there was a claim filed and the money was taken away.  The address I sent it to was 18HHRpghTbFcNb7zeEwBgSRp3UFq7cBFG5 , so I was looking through blockexplorer for info, googled one of the addresses my stolen bitcoin was sent to, and came up with NathanKBarrows from Hackforums.net

One of his posts mentioned a wallet stealer from their forums stole 25k BTC, and I thought I remembered someone here recently losing that many.

I'm not sure how helpful this information is, if at all, but I wanted to share it with the community.

I would have just linked to the forum post, but it requires a membership to that forum, so I used the google cache and took a screenshot:

Just to make that sure, you didn't pay bitcoins with Paypal, right? As everybody as been warned about the risks doing so I guess you didn't. So how did you pay?

Let this be a lesson to you: Never accept PayPal as payment for Bitcoins.  It is PayPal's policy not to support Bitcoin, and they are happy to reverse any/all transactions related to Bitcoins.  If you want to sell Bitcoins, use one of the plethora of trading sites - particularly the ones that offer escrow services.

I don't think he was complaining about his loss of 1 BTC, but rather his discovery of the trail of 25k BTC from elsewhere.
