What happened::
ProspectorsPR contacted me by whatsapp and requested for a loan of 0.25 BTC. We then talked and I said I can only offer him a loan of 0.15. I told him to post on my thread and he did. We agreed on 50,000 TGT, which was thought to be around 130% of the loan value.
Here is the quoted message-

Username: ProspectorsPR
Loan Amount: 0.15
Length of Loan:3*24 Hours
Bitcoin Address: 1PUSfjLkhay5n2uFkHvvcRcXMA7pUizC2C
Reason: Investment
Collateral offered: 48,000 Targetcoin
Accepted
Please send 2,000 more tgt (total 50,000) to 0x69F3c21E2d9B18Dc50AE579A1DbF6251CA929457.



He then sent me "TGT" here-

Username: ProspectorsPR
Loan Amount: 0.15
Length of Loan:3*24 Hours
Bitcoin Address: 1PUSfjLkhay5n2uFkHvvcRcXMA7pUizC2C
Reason: Investment
Collateral offered: 48,000 Targetcoin
Accepted
Please send 2,000 more tgt (total 50,000) to 0x69F3c21E2d9B18Dc50AE579A1DbF6251CA929457.



sent you TGT.
https://etherscan.io/tx/0x3f46cf011f6a6b4730778a258619e84ebdf7634a6af50026827579e5925aed83

What I didn't know, that it was actually some shitcoin made to look like tgt, so had no value at all. I'm not good with ETH, so I didn't know that I wasn't the real TGT.

Yes, I confirm, that he "sent" me EDO  coins , which have never been credited to my wallet. Instant after sending "collateral", he very intensive bombed me with pm's to send him BTC and I surprised that after few hour he stopped  and even another day on his side was silent.

"YassinBTC" tried to scam me with the same strategy. He's not tagged yet so if lauda can tag him, that would be great.

Have to say, they are behaving like alts. I wouldn't be surprised if yassinBTC was an alt of prospectorPR since they both scam in the same way, both use whatsapp to communicate with their victims and just talk in the same fashion.

Always check the smart contract address. See if it is legit or just a random token created out of nowhere.

Done.

Another downside of the shitcoin mETH that has no use cases other than ICOs and scammy contracts.

I really wish we could start introducing ip/hardware bans.

EDIT- Gonna go start a thread about hardware bans in the morning. Alt accounts/scammers are becoming really fucking annoying now.

Man i feel you. This is why it's a good idea to receive your collateral with an exchange that has the coin listed to ensure that you are receiving the legit token and not just some random, worthless token created by a scammer.

Targetcoin is way too volatile to even be valid collateral in my opinion, since no major exchanges list it with high volume trading.

So this is all kralle again?

It's sort of weird how people don't trust hero members out there with money but instead are trusting a junior member with their money. The same user also scammed 0.12 BTC from dkpp https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=992829.

One day, this guy will get caught. Even if he doesn't, with the money scammed we can be sure he will spend it on nothing good.

This guy is a thief, he hacked my ETH address and sweeped all the DAY tokens which was worth 12 ETH and again swept YESTERDAY token from my wallet. I even complained the chronological team that my address has been hacked but they did nothing and instead told me that address once submitted cannot be changed.
In fact i will blame Chronologic team for this hack, should not they must change the address, If they would had did so then i would had 17 ETH, sadly none can be trusted.

Would maybe have been better if someone could've linked this thread to me before now when I stumbled across it now.

Though it's nice recieving this information anyway even now, thanks aTriz. I have no idea how eth works that was probably the issue (I mainly deal in litecoin, dogecoin, bitcoin and a couple of other altcoins so an ERC token is really not my forte).

Anyway, it's not a great loss and hopefully ProspectusPR will spend it wisely (but I really doubt that) - buy yourself and ASIC or run a full node just do something useful. 0.2BTC lost to newbies in a month (wew) - the time to notice that WHENEVER YOU DEAL WITH A NEWBIE YOU ARE ALMOST 100% LIKELY TO BE SCAMMED!
