OKay. I had at first just written a vulgar string of swears in response to this ridiculous thread, but then I realized that was probably due to the wee early morning hours getting the best of me, so here's a more thought out response.
Alright, I'll make it official. Mybitcoin is not a company to do business with. Avoid them at all costs.
Thanks for making it 'official'. Who the **** are you again?
Over a week ago my login credentials didn't work. Only at that time did I realize that mybitcoin has no way to recover passwords.
Strike #1 for MyBitCoin. The free
, solo run, cheap ass website doesn't have a password recovery that could potentially hand accounts away to hackers. I'll bite. +1 for you.
I found previous threads where people had trouble with mybitcoin (duh) and tried the email under whois (firstname.lastname@example.org
) which didn't work. I created a second account to send a message about my first account, but now, days later, still no response.
You should have quit while you were ahead.
For support, please use the messaging system in the login area.
Basically you've proven your un-resourceful, blind as a bat, or both.
Please also avoid their banner ad company, Link2voip, also. Nothing against them, but maybe if Link2voip feels a little shun they will pressure mybitcoin to come clean.
No hold on a second. You haven't even finished your story about how the big bad wolf had big sharp teeth, and you're already ready to kill his neighbors just because they're black? I say proof or GTFO.
Mybitcoin's behavior is a little confusing because they apparently were, at one time, a good service. They have put a considerable effort into their site, they seem to have ambitions to expand as a bitcoin business, and their proprietor, Mr Williams, came forth and acted all CEOish during the recent Mt Gox debacle.
A) You know nothing of anyone, do kindly stfu.
B) You just explained yourself why the accounts are being locked down, fool. (read: FREE SITE + major security upset in the Bitcoin community = go **** yourself).
I have asked Bruce Wagner of bitcoinme.com to stop promoting them and he said he would, but we'll see.
So all I need to do is claim that something happened to me by any company in the world and Bruce Wagner (wtf is that?) will boycott them? Cool. Let me make up a list right now!
I lost 0.5 BTC to them during an autopay when they went down on the 3rd. I emailed and received no response so far. FFS it's only 0.5 BTC, but it's my 1/2 coin not theirs. I will be patient, but I will not send any more coins to them until this is cleared up and may just send directly to Gox in the future.
See lettucebee? This is how you complain about a company correctly. It's pretty simple, you just need to A) provide some bit of believable information, in this case being that a very small amount of was 'lost' during something that is well known to be error prone, B) attempts to be cordial and wait, C) a plea to say that instead of marching up and down the street exhausting ones bowels upon the passers by as you chant a satanic poem about Mybitcoin, it might just be good enough to keep waiting-- since you don't have a choice anyway, and of course the most important part of all that you're missing, D) ("I will be patient, but I will not send any more coins") common sense, which you're dangerously low on. Did you lose a lot? Did mommy not warn you about sending large amounts in cryptocurrency to OPENLY RECOGNIZED anonymously run organizations for unwarrantied services?
My loss is a bit more substantial. Let me know if you hear anything.
Blah blah blah, and my daddy has a corvette. Would you mind sharing with us how many bitcoins it was to maybe help us understand your insanity? There are forgivable ranges, but by the look of things, you're just raging for the hell of it.
Entrusting your money to a web site registered to a PO Box in the West Indies..
OH NO! NOT THE WEST INDIES! HOLY SHIT!
...with numerous complaints of theft is a bad idea.
And where are these complaints exactly? I see exactly 3 complaints on the crappily designed (probably by the OP for this exact purpose no doubt) bitcoinfeedback.com, and all of them are pretty much the exact same thing--- they have nothing to do with theft at all. They have something to do with some fuckhead forgetting his password or having it reset during the security breach, and then flipping out and killing people because they haven't learned any patience.
It really looks like their business model is to steal accounts
I've actually thought about this too, and it IS in fact possible, so +1.
..just not all of them at once (since that would make it too obvious that they were a scam all along).
Are you calling them a scam? Isn't it great how angry mobs work? We've gone from one douchebag claiming without proof, to another douchebag crying scam. Let's see how many simple minded fools will follow along!
We're in the process of revising the BitcoinMe.com page where we recommend how to Buy, Use, and Store your Bitcoins.
Wow. Did anyone ask? Sounds like the op just likes making friends who will agree with him, and someone else likes using other people's rage threads for self promotion. STOP WASTING THE INTERNET.
Well, another disaster and bad publicity for bitcoin.
Oh yea, can't wait till slashdot gets a hold of how horrible customer support is over at the one man show mybitcoin.com.
Be a real merchants who with an open attitude to the publicity and take responsibilities.
Wow man...that was actually..deep and insightful. except you're kind of missing one thing....Mybitcoin is not a business, asshole. It's a free website that one of the vets involved in Bitcoin, bitcoin.org, etc decided to do as a service to the rest of the community. Got a problem with it? DONT USE IT.
Please don't hide behind the Tor net and start a weird business like mybitcoin
This statement (and all following statements for that matter) is more ridiculous than your lack of command of the English language for someone living in America. A) Who said it's a business? B) Why would anyone involved in a 'business' related to a currency centered around anonminity and basically standing up to all of the world's forces NOT be anonymous? So, basically you prefer Satoshi to be brought out to public view before you believe in Bitcoin too? What kind of mental acrobatics must you be doing to think you're right?
We will see some other liars who..
Christ. Just like I said. Idiots begat idiots. Let's not forget that the FIRST POST IS HEARSAY.
Using an "online wallet service" is a terrible idea.
It has it's uses, but yes, it's a risk everyone will have to come to terms with and there are ways to minimize those risks.
You're entrusting your money to an anonymous scammer.
That's right kids! Anyone at ALL who EVER OFFERS A SERVICE ONLINE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO UPLOAD YOU WALLET IS AUTOMATICALLY A SCAMMER. CHRIST. STFU.
Some trustworthy centralization is unavoidable.
You obviously have no idea how your country stays safe or in power.
Again, Flexcoin.com is Ponzi game.
I didn't quote the rest, because my brain wouldn't stop hurting after reading this far into your drivel. It's 'scheme' btw you idiot.
Lettucebee, I sympathize with your situation. You may have found one of the threads I started when you did your forum history search for MyBitcoin-related threads. I've had various problems with them over the last 8 months. I don't really believe the owner/operator of the site is trying to scam people though. He's probably just overwhelmed with the level of work required to maintain a free site. I've suggested that there is a market opportunity for a fee-for-service version of MyBitcoin. Maybe make it free to hold personal wallets but charge businesses for the API. At any rate, I hope you recover your coins.
Imagine that. A veteran user had something intelligent AND nice to say about the situation that provided both insight and some kind of solution. I hope one day I can deliver one post responses and not need to deal with things in the way I'm dealing with them right now, but sometimes....CHRIST.
Well, obviously. That's why when you work you're paid in hamburgers.
Actually, judging by their understanding of common sensical principles, I'd say they probably DO get paid in hamburgers as they work at McDonalds.
We're in Pennsylvania... not Mexico.....
Buddy, I'm sorry about the ridiculous things that that retard is saying about you, because it all IS total bullshit-- that being said, anyone who names themselves "The founder" on a website called "bitcoin.org" is a little bit of a prick in my book.
As i tried to say, i am happy with mybitcoin. But perhaps a paid for e-wallet with support would be nice for nervous people.
That's putting it lightly... more like medicated.
For the record, Bruce Wagner has always responded quickly and thoughtfully to my pleas. Thank you, Bruce. You seem like a swell fellow!
Aww. why don't you two get married, then you can co-own all the threads you end up cross spamming anyway!
No issues with mybitcoin, not sure how there is allways some vague user making claims like OP yet actually provide no evidence of said claim.
And there it is people. I use MyBitCoin. I've never had an issue! I've had lots of issues! What's the difference between those two statements? Perception. And issue is just that-- something to resolve. You retards seem to have begun to associate having problems with being a scammer. Pop a pill and take a seat, its going to be an extremely long ride with Bitcoin.
Reports seem to be very consistent.
(1) Lose your password.
(2) No communication.
(3) In effect, they've kept your money.
Let's hope that's not really their business plan... not really their intention.
Jesus H. Titty fucking Christ. Are you a failed children's story writer? #1 is user ignorance. #2 is an obvious DUH considering the users are using all the most abstract means of contact known to man (read: "I EMAILED THE DNS EMAIL", also read: "Use the message box on the website to contact me -mybitcoin owner"), and #3 is still unproved ballfunk.
Hmmm, well I've never had a problem with MyBitcoin. I just cashed out because you guys are making me worried,
And the crowd of freaks grows! Literally!
He lost 1000 Bitcoins on MyBitcoin.com
Bruce, I have a friend who claims you stole his purse. here is an OPEN INVITATION TO YOU. (rofl)
Seriously guys. If you LOST MONEY, POST PROOF. Stop with this spraying of diarrhea on the walls. I'm not saying MyBitCoin is safe-- hell, no place is
. I wouldn't trust ANY of you to hold my wallet, much less the door for me on the way out of a building. That doesn't mean that it's a SCAM. Your libelous and ridiculously abusing and ignorant banter has driven me insane, and for those of you who can't understand where my aggression is coming from-- this is the 999th thread I've read where people blindly believe what the poster is posting and go along with it like some rerun of high school idiocy. I have no idea what I'm going to do when I read #1000. I'll probably just donate all my BTC to that OP cause I'm random and cool like that.
Apparently you cant read. It's not our fault you're stupid.
Your comment was the longest of all...I'm just saying...The crazy guy is usually the one screaming for everyone to shut up when nobody is even saying anything.
