This is his profile https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=378715

This is his thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2751042.msg30539476#msg30539476 , for some reason I can't post there., the topic is locked.

This is his skype: curexineurope

He scammed me of $1,000 in amazon cards. He hasn't logged for a week here and now he started to up his scam thread.

He sent the BTC for one card and after I sent him 2 cards he sent no BTC and got offline. Haven't heard back for him for over a week. Contacted him on skype and here but he didn't answer. Today he started to post on his thread.

Do not deal with him! He will scam you!

He was a scammer self-moderating his thread by locking it.  Sadly, your money is gone forever, you should have never sent someone like that so much money without ESCROW.

You can report the Amazon gift cards as stolen and try to get his Amazon account closed.

Here is my thread pertaining to the problems of self-moderated threads in the marketplace: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2929216.0

Yeah, I know that. Is my fault, I am the stupid one Smiley. I am not here for my money, I am here to warn the others...

Maybe someone will ban him. Or make him come here on this thread to answer...

The admins/mods do not ban people for scamming.  Other users will give him negative trust and that is it.

The only thing you can do is contact amazon and tell them your gift cards are stolen.  This will not get your money back, but it may mess up his amazon account if he hasn't already completely spent the GCs.

The negative trust would do the trick for him/her to come here and discuss the accusation. If the account doesn't care that much for v1ljar, forget about any settlement.
As a tip for future trades, it is recommended to archive links that is related to your deals (http://archive.is/Mrls0). It can help you as an evidence to prove things when it turns out to be a bad trade.

This guy has been scamming since 2015(look at his previous negatives), simply giving negative trust does not do the trick.. -.-

Did you report your Amazon gift cards yet!?!

Sorry I might have confused you. I meant that, negative trust will do the trick if it comes from a DT in which the rating will reflect upon his account.
Also, it would probably lessen the chances for him/her to scam more people when they've see the red paint. (and not just some hidden untrusted -ve)

Never trade without escrow with guys that have a locked and/or self moderated thread. Always check trusted and untrusted feedbacks. Untrusted ones are not always relevant, but when many people say the same thing about someone, you can be sure it's true.

Newbies shouldn't be allowed to use the thread locking and self-moderating feature. It's a tool used to enhance the success rate of their scams. I have seen a few scam threads locked and all I could do was report it to the moderators. They still have a window of opportunity to scam someone up until a moderator deletes the thread or a DT member tags the scammer.

Restricting the locking and self-moderating feature to more advanced members might help stop throwaway accounts from creating scam threads. Would be nice to see this considered and introduced.

Do the moderators actually do anything ? as they usually ignore reports about scammers.

Nobody seems to have done anything to neg this person, yet.

This is a warning to others, even if you're dealing with gift cards odesn't mean that you can get away with not using escrow. OP's example is a good one, if you're offering up legit gift cards, and they get redeemed, the process of recovering the gift cards will be long and in the end, the scammer probably has alerady spent your gift cards.

Almost all of the locked threads with only the OP spamming his bumps, are going to be scams. They should all be negged for doing this.

I have seen a few scam threads locked and all I could do was report it to the moderators.

Moderators don't deal with scam reports. That's up to DT members to give out negative trust to warn people. But deleting scam threads could be possible.

That would explain why this site has so many scammers.

Reported his thread 1 week ago, still up. He just posted today again. Nobody cares so takes this as a warning as moderators don't do anything...

Also I don't get it how someone can lock his thread and post whatever he wants? WTF? Is this for real? This is perfect for scammers.
