So, I needed some ASICMINER shares transferred (from one address I own to another I own) for the first time and I emailed Friedcat a few days ago, and he has not responded. Am I supposed to do something else? Also, what's to prevent some random person from emailing Friedcat and fraudulently transferring my shares to his BTC address? Is it in Friedcat's ledger that ThrillHou has X shares because the person I bought those from told him that?

Somebody Halp I need my BTC now and as we all know here, time is money!

PM him; sign a message with your btc address to prove ownership.

Also keep in mind, one downside of owning direct shares is that they are not as liquid as PT shares.  My last share transfer request was sent on June 29th and I didn't receive confirmation of the transfer until July 10th.  I think that may have been a bit of a fluke because I've had other transfers that only took 4 days.

He's usually very quick; always made it before the next div if done by monday.

Still not sure how to "sign a message with your btc address to prove ownership."

I'm sorry I'm still at a loss on what to do, mainly because I still don't get the concept of a signed message and how to use it. Is a signed message a message from my client(Electrum) which says I own the address?  Did Friedcat perhaps ignore my earlier PM through this site because the message was not signed and therefore any punk could just say they want the shares transferred to their account? I am guessing the signed message has something to do with preventing this kind of scam?

BTW the address I am transferring the shares from is a paper wallet, the new address for the shares will be in Electrum. Not sure if that makes a difference or not, since it is implied from the replies here that I can sign my message through electrum?

Anybody care to keep prodding me in the right direction? My humble thanks

You'll have to import the paper wallet into Electrum before you can sign a message with the private key associated with that address.  (Sorry, I don't use Electrum, so I'm not sure what the specific steps are to do this.)
