tl;dr

Did http://bitcoin-otc.com/viewratingdetail.php?nick=legitnick1 (legitnick before he lost his original key) sell his forum account, or is it actually him scamming on his own account? I did a FTF cash trade with him, http://www.linkedin.com/pub/nick-legotte/64/507/92

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

Obama owns legitnick. He sold his account...or was hacked.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.

I cant believe someone fell for that

this times like, 5 billion. people these days

***USERNAME r3wd (who posted in this thread) might be a legitnick sockpuppet*****

In the thread below, username "obama" (likely another legitnick sockpuppet used in his "award" pm's), offers to buy r3wt's account:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=238432.msg2591196#msg2591196

Mods should forbid account trading.

for the love of god, this!

My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

Would be pointless, there's no way to actually enforce it.

Not entirely pointless. Account sales will decrease if there wasn't open threads "BUYING BITCOINTALK FORUM ACCOUNTS"! People will have to visit another forum in order to bst accounts.

What's the difference it will still happen regardless. They will just manipulate google search results so searching for 'bitcointalk' shows SELL UR ACCOUNT HERE on the first page or advertise on reddit/twitter and other social media.

Also install Common Sense 1.0 and don't click on a PM that says "Download this mtgox.exe winning self-archiving wallet!".

Mods could also use SMF plugins to look for heavy PM traffic and hellban that user, so they keep sending PMs but they aren't actually being sent, letting the bot run itself out and waste time doing nothing. Or DOS them with timeouts and errors http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=471231.0

This is nothing that a good sandbox can't fix.  It's hard to believe anyone on bitcointalkscam.org would fall for this. How many times does the frying pan need to hit you in the head before you duck?

Anyone who fell for this needs to make absolutely sure they have wiped their hard drive and changed passwords.  Today the scammers bid over $300 on my eBay account, bought $300 worth of gift cards on Amazon for Hotmail accounts, spent about $35 on PayPal, and had my blockchain.info wallet sent to my email address.  Then they tried to initiate password resets on dwolla, coinbase, and bitinstant.

They did all of that over the course of about fifteen minutes.  The Obama alias is also watching the forums and has even posted in some of the current scam threads.

This might be gravedigging, but I received an interesting PM from someone today.

Quote from: confidental, I don't spread names
I jokingly offered to sell my account for $3.50 to this obvious skid/scammer but then he offered me $50 for my account so I agreed to it and I have emails that verify this transaction. I wasn't aware that he would use my account maliciously.

I'm not sure how much help it would be but I can provide a wallet address that he was using and if I knew this is what he was up to I would have gotten more info on him.

I can verify that I am who I say I am by using my bitcoin-otc key.

There was no mention of this users name. No PMs before. I just got this PM out of the blue, and nothing else. With the $3.50 though, I instantly know who it is.

legitnick was offered $50 for his account and apparently had no idea of what the person would do. Maybe his account should be returned to him?

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.
