Sup everyone. I'm from NYC. Sort of new to BTC. I've herd about it in passing but had no idea how hard it would actually be to get just a couple of coins lol. I'd like to buy at least 2, off of one of the trusted members/vendors here just to get my feet way.

Peace

Send cash (or a U.S. postal money order) to my P.O. Box and I'll send you some bitcoin.

Use bitcoin.de or any other exchange, that's the safest way to buy.

Just make sure to always use escrow, if you buy here on the forums.

An interesting article about bitcoin trading in union square park:

I personally use coinbase.com for all of my buying and selling.

Make sure and use escrow even if you think you are trading with a trusted member. Also, I would highly recommend JohnK escrow as he is highly trusted to reduce your risk of being scammed

On this same note as aststa mentioned, people purchase and sell old forum accounts here, so be careful with whom you do business with. Always use escrow, Always!

Edit: food for thought, 300 BTC stolen just recently in a group buy.

Thanks for this, a meet up group was pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I would use one of the websites/exchanges but between the fees, set up times, non-ease of use, etc... They all just seem like headaches. Unless your really looking to invest in/get into Bitcoin heavily.

Couldn't I just trade in person and you know sort of take my money back, and maybe a little compensation package if they tried to scam lol

Woahhhhhhh lol. I'm at least glad you guys seem to ostracize/identify posters fairly quickly when you find out their scammers
