It has come to my attention in the last two weeks that there is someone trying to scam people and trying to say that I am them. I will post the chats below that have been sent to me via PM. Both times the people that were being lied to contacted me and asked me to verify I was who they were talking to. Due to this any business I do from now on I will be SIGNING with a BTC address I own (ONLY this one): 1King16MnUwPtmVPPPm3dRbB52BDKH2zFs

Heres my first signed message:

"This is Kingofsports from bitcointalk on 8/11/13."

HJEHCk+Htwn1hm4D83l8kPKW2I8X+Aa2F5CI2iRdCkWxPLvQWb0R0JWMZsML/Y5HR6kkGDHGwi4nfap97n2JvH4=

IF SOMEONE CONTACTS YOU ASKING TO TRADE MAKE SURE TO VERIFY THIS! Check the FULL address, and not just see 1king and believe its me. Its very easy to create a similar vanity address.

You can verify signed bitcoin address messages here: http://brainwallet.org/#verify


Who do I think is the person trying to scam under my name?

I am pretty certain it is the person who stalks me everywhere I go and accuses me of being related to someone who supposedly scammed for 1 BTC. The thread can be found here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=244843.0

Numberfive who is nickfor2, a known repeat scammer here and on seals, continuously calls me out and even offered to accept wagers that I would scam again. I stick to my reputation and have scammed no one. I cannot say for certain this is his doing but in a way this would double benefit him, he could blackmail/call me out as a scammer because someone would say they were scammed by me when really it was him who scammed someone. Anyways I wanted to post this to make sure I cover myself.

If someone claims to be me, Ask for "me" to verify the address: 1King16MnUwPtmVPPPm3dRbB52BDKH2zFs and ask "me" to sign whatever message you want to prove my authenticity. I am taking a small break from bitcoins so honestly any trades I do will only be for-profit flips at this moment.

If I offer to sell something for under the cheapest exchange price like btc-e or bitstamp OR offer to pay above mtgox or other exchanges this should be instantly a red flag. I do not pay above market or sell for below market generally.

Evidence chats are below.

I figured as much Wink No worries, I have been looking for some fitting escrow for days and he has been saying that he is you through a gmail acct and torchat.  Thanks for the quick response!  He is apparently trying to sell me 2.5k worth of LTC at the rate of $2.0 per and I was to pay in MoneyPaks.  I can send you the convos if you want, but we didn't transact as I was waiting for him to message me from this acct. I asked about 3 times, he said that the messages sent and that I must have a problem with my acc.
Also,
Torchat id:b2erpjpc3i2ogh6a(CatchMeOnSeals)

I'll just give u the gmail as I just realized that Torchat doesn't save.  There was alot fishy about the transaction (starting with the inconsistent names). It's alot of stuff :/ Thanks again for the response, I am a newbie but this was pretty transparent.  It also isn't in perfect order, sorry.

                        Hey,
                        I have the MPs, but still want to do escrow.  Everything about this transaction is a bit off :/  I hope you don't take offense to this, it is just from a safety point of view.  If you send the equivalent of the first MP (I don't expect you to) that would be fine, but, other than that I think that escrow will be necessary.  Any response from John K? I'll be looking for some other escrow tonight.  Sorry about the long wait!

And to send you the money I just give you the scratch off number?

I pm'ed John K a while ago when you first contacted me, about 5pm. He hasn't responded since. Hes online at various times but many do PM him so his box could be full.

                                        i understand. Its weird u dont trust but okay :-) If thats the casue I can exchange 1 now and just send the ltc in good faith. then u can pay the rest tomorrow so u dont waste money. up to you again.

                                            Sounds good, I can make a separate moneypak to pay for the escrow.  Unfortunately, my bank only allows me to spend so much in purchases per day (and only withdraw 600$ per day). So, I have 2 MP right now and can get the 3rd tomorrow morning along with one to pay John K.  It's not that I don't have trust in you, I just want to be as safe as possible since I am more of a newbie on the website.  The first two MPs are 834 and the third will be 832 when I get it tomorrow.  What time would be good for you? Morning or afternoon is fine for me.

                                            Thanks again!

The above conversation was the most recent attempt to scam saying they were me. The first one reported to me happened about 2 weeks and I cannot seem to find the PM in my inbox, I must have deleted it. If you are that person who PMed about it couple weeks ago and have the chats from skype please post them here. Thanks.

Sucks

Due to this any business I do from now on I will be SIGNING with a BTC address I own (ONLY this one): 1King16MnUwPtmVPPPm3dRbB52BDKH2zFs

Heres my first signed message:

"This is Kingofsports from bitcointalk on 8/11/13."

At least you are advertising the right remedy.

Hey man, I'm getting alot of flack for having my email mentioned in this post (smalloy08).  Could you please mention that I am not the one scamming but the one being scammed?  Also that it was a prospective Litecoin purchase? Thanks again.
