That's really quite cunning.

I think you need to come up with a new procedure for escrow so that people know that each instance is a real escrow instance.

E.g. a website you own and publish with a list of escrow amounts, dates and for whom. It can then be up to the users to verify each other's identities.

If this post was useful, interesting or entertaining, then you've misunderstood. 1N6rmaDiPf8ke3mx8217NykAMDZXkX713x

I always send out escrow contracts directly via PM, and signed with my public key to prevent such MITM attacks. I guess I could set up a site for this, but escrowing is just a hobby for me...

Pretty sure the buyers (bidders) are scammers as well. I discovered a flaw with Ebay's Buyer/Seller protection awhile back while buying and selling BTC.

The buyer will get his money (and disappear with it), and never send the unit. The bidder will then be refunded his money via protection. Making Ebay/Paypal the guys that lose out while the scammers run off with the free money. Note the very low rating of the seller and bidders. They are burn accounts.

I was right in the middle of reporting it when it disappeared.  Smiley

Lol I just clicked link in OP to check it out. This is your Asic?

Meh - I guess you'll at least get a slightly better hash rate than a GPU...

Lol, more power efficient too.  Someone should make an ASIC that runs off of human power!

I wouldn't worry about it, even the guy who accused you of scamming by posting a fake contract was called out pretty quickly.  Most people familiar with Bitcoin are familiar with verifying public keys.
