When refreshing the FTP directory periodically, three .dat files appeared.  I have downloaded them and removed them from the FTP server.  After starting up bitcoind with them I will report on any addresses they contain that have been seen in the block chain.  If they turn out to be your addresses, create a new wallet on a secure machine and spend all of your coins to one of its addresses ASAP.

EDIT: More keep popping up every so often.  I am downloading and deleting all that I find.

Dude, you are a goddamn rock star! Love to see this kind of crap foiled

Maybe run the addresses through this list that was scraped earlier today?
http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=24346.0

I wonder if unemployed still has the unfiltered list... (any address added to a sig after this was released can't be trusted)
Backed that up earlier and was even checking those first few addresses cd posted (obviously curious for myself and any other forum members, in a weird way, the list came at a convenient time lol)

The list is at http://pastehtml.com/view/ayrpygp5m.html

Not related directly with this particular scam, I guess. But if could also be the first steps in information warfare to discredit BTC.
I don't wear a tin foil hat, but if this seems like he has an agenda so it seasy to believe something like this.

Just a note:
The website is almost textbook selling-crap-website, with the awards the seeming expertise and so on.

His name is Brett,

he is also linked to http://www.prankcallradio.net/

and he was implicated earlier in a bitcoin heist on OTC, but I wasn't involved so I can't vouch either way.

http://bitcoin-otc.com/viewratingdetail.php?nick=FooDSt4mP&sign=NEG&type=RECV&sortby=rater_nick&sortorder=ASC

Google his nick FooDSt4mP. Way too much information comes up on this guy.

Has anyone else received an email from "Bitcoin Mining Accelerator"? With the text as follows:

==

Hi there, we'd like to invite you to be a beta tester of our awesome new Bitcoin Mining Accelerator program called "Coin Miner".

We have been keeping it under wraps developing it for the past few months and are ready to get people to test it out.
Basically how it works is that it automatically safely software overclocks your GPU to a stable level for optimum mining performance.
This way you don't have to fiddle with BIOS overclocks, MSI Afterburner or any other overclocking software - this does it automatically on the fly.

We are currently achieving around a 23% increase in Mhash/s mining speed. Some users have seen even higher gains.

The program is in Beta right now so we are offering it for free to anyone that wants to try it out.
If you are interested, check out our site: (a link to a counter, with a bogus website)....

A reaction against encouraging anyone to watching a video by some ignorant fuck reading his screencapped emails “exposing” the “journalistic hitman” ex post facto is completely rational. There is nothing emotional about it.

[deleted] mods moved this post form another thread, no longer makes sense.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

...
18a1RoNu3WRneMimHEUYAB9FTmnhymagW1
The coins that are now at this address belonged to a guy who used his email address as the label for his primary receiving address.  I've contacted him and he is in full panicmode (not a native English speaker, so I don't think the "I have your coins, they are safe" part got through completely).  So these coins at least are accounted for.

Just for the record, I would like to give you props for your efforts. You are awesome.
I'm just doing what I would want someone else to do if my wallet were stolen.  Smiley

That one recalls me one day when I went to bathroom at a mall, in the toilet paper dispenser I found a wallet, it has all the guy's documents but no money in it. There was a card with the owner's gf number, I called her to return the wallet, the guy came pick the wallet and looked at me as if I was the robber, not even a "thank you".  Angry

This guy has his coins back now.  The bulk of the remaining coins came from these two addresses in the same wallet:

18AUW2KuwqiCJVWDTBmBtDj5GPYM2znnWv
1FLSA6bs2iAeZXJ85jBV3bUCq8J7G7XVyk

If they are yours, please contact me with some evidence (a copy of your wallet.dat to start and we can work from there) and we'll see what can be worked out.

If nobody claims them, I would like the community to decide what should be done with them.  I don't want to be a part of that discussion since, by controlling the funds, I have a conflict of interest.

I guess this thread is the right place to introduce you all to my new project: The Bitcoin ShitList - The place to report all the bad stuff/scams that happen around the bitcoin community.

If any of you(forum users with good reputation) wants to volunteer to help with the website, design included i will be very happy to have help. I'm sure it will need moderators to weed out bad submissions and to investigate if the claims/complaints are valid or not. Wink

You guys think it's a good idea?
