Skipbay69 is claiming to sell an Antminer S9 on this thread:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2629836.0


So this guy is def not legit. He sent me an email back with pictures (inclusive of date/time stamps to make them look incredibly real), as I'm sure he did for you all as well. If any of you have been emailing him and received photos, they are not real. You can find them all over the web, including at the below links:

https://www.avizo.sk/rubriky/pc/komponenty/inzerat-19719873-zbrusu-novy-bitmain-antminer-s9-13-5th

I want to give this guy the benefit of the doubt and say he was just too lazy to take pictures of his own stuff, or he doesn't have it at his house yet, or something like that...but I know better.

I don't know what prompts these disgusting human beings to scam honest people out of their hard earned money, but it's despicable. Do you all really think you can get away with this? If legal issues don't come your way, karma will find a way to make you pay. You do realize that right? You don't get to mess with other people's lives...and just get away with it. People have kids, jobs, are just trying to make a living and earn some extra income for themselves...so whatever justification you're using, it doesn't apply. Lots of people are just trying to earn some extra cash. They're not huge corporations who maybe you can justify stealing from here and there, it's not some huge evil organization with all kinds of illegal things going on, it's just people. Normal, everyday people. That's who you're screwing over.

How are the forums ok with this? You're telling me there's nothing that can be done? You're insane if you think people believe that. Some of the mods need to step up, or step down and let others lead who have a moral compass.

Thanks for the heads up. Scammers are some of the lowest of the low to me. Jail time is not enough punishment. I made a post in meta about how newbies should not be allowed to post in the marketplace. This wouldn’t  eliminate it ,but I still believe it would help prevent scammers from just joining the site and posting a scam. Other forums I belong to do it that way to help keep the marketplace to contributing members of the community.

It's funny you say that because I just thought to myself how messed up other marketplace's would be if newbies were allowed to post. Of course, I never would have been allowed to post this or other things, but I would have been ok with it if it meant knowing the people posting there were somewhat trusted on the site. I would have still been able to PM them or use their off-site contact info to reach out and make the purchase. Tsk tsk.
