Don't feel sorry for me.  Feel sorry for yourself.  You are the one with the failed business.
Yours is not a legitimate business.  It is a sham.  'trustworthy services'?  'Honesty'?  You can write it a 1000 times more and it won't change the facts that your operations are not.

I don't discuss my business with random whiny forumites for the same reason I don't discuss quantum physics with my golden retriever, neither is mentally equipped to understand the very basics of the subject at hand.


I am merely sharing with my peers my experience trying to open an account on your website.

Which basically boils down to "the coffee didn't come with a temperature warning, I therefore burnt myself. I am angry about it and demand that someone pays attention to my whining".


Some idiot name 'devout' - got real smart and snappy

Don't hate your betters, learn a lesson.
The lesson is : "please" works better than dumb threats when you're seeking assistance.


I learned the service isn't an actual functioning serious business

You apparently did not learn anything here, however you did demonstrate your inability to distinguish a fast-food from a correctly operated money service business. You're not ordering fries here, you're requesting an account to be opened in your name with a licensed financial insitution performing legally required checks and correct due diligence on their new business relationships.


After 10 days now, the 'verification process' is still not complete when you advertise between 24 - 48 hours

Sit down, make yourself a cup of tea. Now think, think harder. Good! You just realized there may be a connection between this fact and your previous request, which was : "close my account".

Your account has been closed, your data archived. You have been blacklisted and will be refused service from now on.

I personnaly have opened an account in bitcoin central, sent documents saturday night, account validated sunday evening.

I am worried that I've been scammed.
My advice: Stay Away!!!!  

I live in same city than the owners of the exchange, if they are scamers, I can physically kick them ass

And I don't think they would create a registered compagny, using registered bank accounts for customers to scam them.

It's pretty sure in those conditions they will finish in jail if they do this.

In more confident using exchanges fully registered with banks, and european laws, that's why I use bitcoin.de, and have registered on bitcoin-central.net  Wink

Both (bank accounts are not available yet in bitcoin.de, but it's coming) are covered by europeans bank law for fiat deposits to a level of 100 000€, no fear that they run with money, and if the company goes bankrupt, I'm covered.

I don't have bought bitcoin on their site for now, but it's just because volume is still low for now.

So in my opinion, for european users, those two websites (one is OTC, other is real exchange) are the better covered against incidents for buying bitcoins Smiley

Well, I don't advocate violence so please don't kick their asses.  Besides, nobody kicks ass in France anyway.  The worse thing they'll ever do is 'fart in your general direction'. 

I think the only solution is to stick with a safe exchange company like BitStamp.  Clearly, these rookies are struggling no matter how much they like to advertise they are a legitimate company.

The way you quote my post is funny, you're a funny guy

It's like if I have been interviewed by Fox  Grin

It's kind of bizarre that people assume this kind of thing, you could also be denied entry, get your ass kicked or whatever.


And I don't think they would create a registered compagny, using registered bank accounts for customers to scam them.

It's pretty sure in those conditions they will finish in jail if they do this.

Thank you, finally someone speaking some plain old common sense!

Words of wisdom :-)

Yup, other exchanges work in a sort of flawed way where the user deposits are considered to be corporate property, and can be seized, frozen and whatnot, for whatever reason, like it happened to mtgox in France (without much consequences), in the US (making them insolvent), and like it'll happen eventually to bitstamp.


The worse thing they'll ever do is 'fart in your general direction'.

I'll assume your address and my compass are accurate, so consider it just happened.


It's like if I have been interviewed by Fox  Grin

You made me chuckle :-)

Alert:tvbcof and his new TKeenan alias is actually a troll trying to derail bitcoin start ups in any way he can, essentially by foul calomny.

tvbcof is displaying now his xenophobia openly. That is why he is targeting specifically a Paris-based business.

Ouch!  You cut me to the the quick, man!

It's not like I asserted that all French people have poor hygiene habits and offensive body odor because of this.  Or maybe I did...I don't remember.  Anyway, some of my best friends or French.  Hmmm...actually that's not true.  I don't think I really have any French friends.  I had a Belgian co-worker not long ago an he was pretty cool though.  French, Belgian, Mongolian, whatever.  It's all about the same thing to us xenophobes.

tvbcof - All of my lulz!!1

Boussac - listen here Frenchy, interwebs srs business.  playing the 'race card' like you have just done here sends an open invitation for responses of this flavor. 

then again, you raise an interesting point: should no-cap crypto-coin businesses be afforded some form of special treatment, a handycap adjustment if you will, if they're french?  i say NO to special treatment for the french!

Fortunately, they are almost completely non-existent in technology and matters relating to the Internet.  When they do come, the come like this feeble group.  Very limply arrive - and quickly disappear.  And that is the end of the story for Bitcoin-Central.   Pfffftt!!!  Just like a French fart.
You are right: my accusations of xenophobia are completely misguided. You are simply suffering from brain damage caused by too much watching Fox news.
I do feel sorry for you and you cannot change that. Now you are going on my ignore list for good if you don't mind.

I did not know nationality was race. There are people of all shapes and colors around here.
Thanks for enlightening me with your knowledge and wisdom.

By the way, read the posts before you write because someone else first mentionned that I may be from a country where people talk funny.
I try to conceal this handicap but my poor command of the English language and my blog address probably betrayed me.

...
I just learned that Bitstamp is the exchange which you guys dream about making.  It is an actual organization with real professionals and stuff like that.
...

Please do be a little bit careful about this.  Boussac was eventually DOX'd in spite of the general care Bitcoin-Central took to hide their identities.  Or at least he gave some name for his presentation in San Jose earlier this year.

To the best of my knowledge the operators of Bitstamp have not been identified.  As is the case with ~davout, one of the operators of Bitstamp is has admin capabilities on this board (~hazek) but that is not a guarantee of easy tracking should it come to that, and certainly should not be used as an indication of honesty or integrity.  Sometimes I feel it is the opposite in fact.

For my part, I only do business with outfits that don't try to obscure the identities of their principles.  Currently I patronize Coinbase and Blockchain.info in part because of this.

An unlicensed money business, ignorant of FATCA (read: they'll get anally raped as soon as they set foot in the US), that can't properly round a fee, that is being effortlessly MITM'd by the NSA (yes cloudflare I'm looking at you), run by a couple slovenian freshmen? Hah. They have a very successful lemonade stand, good for them!


Not a bunch of pillocks playing about on the internet pretending to make a business.  

This is rather cute coming from a pretend-lawyer whose website comments section advertises penis enlargement products and leaks your contracts templates all over the internet ;-)

You're such a priceless little fella.


To the best of my knowledge

And that's why no one gives a single shit about your "knowledge".


Currently I patronize Coinbase and Blockchain.info

Go back to the newbie jail, or the self-moderated section, you'll avoid getting yourself bitchslapped back and forth :-)

Finally.

BTW, how's that police investigation coming along?

And dija figure out what your take on the unclaimed wallets ended up being?  At the rate Bitcoin is going up it should pay all you guy's salaries for years, eh?

Finally.

Trolling is a art that you do not seem to master.
Or maybe you're actually unable to perform a basic google search, is that so?
Oh god, it doesn't even require googling, most decent browsers will take you to paymium.com directly if you type "paymium" in the address bar.

So my question here, is "Finally what?".


BTW, how's that police investigation coming along?

You seem confused. If the difference between a private investigator and a police officer is unclear to you I suggest you go find out.


And dija figure out what your take on the unclaimed wallets ended up being?

Please, let me know by PM (or publicly if you so wish), if there is a way for us to compile an accurate financial reporting document that you can independently cross-check without trusting us. Describe all the information that should be included and how it could be cross-checked independently.


Now let us go back on topic, which, for the record is "I was scammed because BC's verification process took more time than the advertised general time-frame", a particular case of the more general problem "my fries came cold".

Fucking typical French - going after the fries thing.  You frogs LOVE McDonalds.  Go to any town in the whole country - biggest line is at McDonalds.

Yup, I'm loving it. But do you see the morbidly obese crowd you're used to in said lines? Nah. Why would that be?
Sometimes I get cold fries, I go to the counter, I say "could you change my fries, they're cold", which I usually follow by "please" and conclude by a "thank you" upon reception of additionnal fries in the acceptable temperature range. Oh, and every fucking time I forget to ask for extra salt, so I have to go back, stupid me.


Dude - it was your smart fucking answer to an inquiry which made me think you are a scammer.

Look at the mtgox withdrawal delay thread, these people have reasons to be angry!
But you... Seriously, you're waiting in line like everyone else for a few days more than advertised and you get all agitated and all "approve my account or else"?

(And for the record, despite your account being locked on our side your verification process went on with our partner and you have a verified account with them since a week or so)


you could use those penis adverts

Haha, that Napoleon complex thing again? Do you know that saying? "The flaws we see in others..."


can you please provide a link?

No fucking way. I don't disclose identifying information about past, current, or to-be customers, and certainly not to make some random point on some random internet message board.


So I want to know - are you now willing to admit your service is merely vaporware?

That's what it'll be to you unless you get invited back in :-)


At least two of us

Look, you're new here, no problem with that, for now you just need to know that tvbcof has some sort of weird obsession with me. Go figure.


you've done nothing to indicate Bitcoin-Central is nothing more than BS.

Right. Now I'm going to thank you for your visit and genuinely wish you luck and happiness, you know where to find me.

Davout is probably tied up working on his 'military grade' computers so I'll be helpful and answer for him:

  "Hey douche: Take your meds."

(I took the liberty of adding a French word for added effect.)
