Sold my miner to him. He paid me 13 BTC + a "new" 7990. He also owed me 0.5BTC, but since I shipped the miner to him he has ignored all my messages and essentially disappeared. I now sadly question if the 7990 is new, suspect it was used likely part of his mining rig or something.  Very odd transaction. Advise caution when dealing with this guy. He seems to like to avoid Escrow and will pay first but then doesn't pay remainder Sad Sad.

Thanks for reporting him. I will look out and avoid doing business with him.

That doesn't makes much sense. The guy comes through with 13BTC and scams you for .5. Funny world, hope this is just a misunderstanding.

Easy. He wanted the mining equipment, he got it and he saved $60. That's a decent amount.

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.
