Ok. So here is what I have gather from reading that link:
Malick is a known scammer (epassport fiasco).
Now, you claim that Paxum is run by the same Malick. I have read 10 out of the 15 pages of the thread, please point me to a link if there is anything interesting after that because all Ive seen is speculation. What I have gather from the thread:User nanaimogold says that he expects it to be owned by Malick, the scammer
Nanaimogold also says
Paxum is not an e-currency, it is a payment processor designed to replace epassporte.
Their banking is in Belize. Only their support office is in Quebec.
They are aggressively going after the *ahem* "adult" business.
I expect this is owned by Chris Mallick.http://chris-mallick.org/
He ripped me off in '03 - the old "change the rules after I get your money" game.
The reason for putting a call centre in Quebec is due to the different laws regarding lying to people over the phone. Under English common law, this is criminal. Under the French civil tradition, it's not.But then he backs down
That's why almost all phone scams operate from Quebec. It's almost never the Québécois running these scams, US Americans and Nigerians are almost always to blame.
Beware area code 514
Hey guys, I said I think it's the same people. At least one of their support people is the same. The epassporte guys lied and a lot of people were hurt when they did not get paid. Mallick made that movie and now Paxum starts up and domn, it sure looks like epassporteNow a Paxum rep appears and denies any relation with Malick:
WM is an e-currency. It's a private issue. Paxum is a payment processor. They carry national currencies. there is a huge difference.
It seems confirmed that Paxum has nothing to do with Malick, the scammer, (nanaigold stops the accusation), but the Paxum rep admits that a guy employed previously in epassaporte worked with them for two weeks only
I wanted to pop in here and clear up a few things that seem to be being said about Paxum in this thread that are misleading...
Paxum is a Canadian Incorporated Company. We are located and based out of Quebec, Canada. We are registered with FINTRAC as a Money Services Business (link - http://www10.fintrac-canafe.gc.ca/ms...19556-eng.html
Paxum is an EWALLET PAYMENT SERVICEPaxum has absolutely NOTHING to do with Chris Mallick or Epassporte in ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM.
We are not an e-currency. We are not a payment processor, we are an EWALLET PAYMENT SERVICE.
With Paxum there are two parts to your account; the Paxum ewallet and the Paxum Mastercard. Everyone gets an ewallet when they sign up, and everyone can request the Paxum Mastercard as soon as their account is verified (whether you have funds in your account or not) and it will be shipped out absolutely free.
Verification takes 24 hours usually and requires a photo ID and a proof of address.
Signup is free, there are no monthly fees. We offer Peer 2 Peer (P2P) as well as Business to Peer (B2P), B2B and P2B payments through our service.
Clients have a number of funding and withdrawal options for their Paxum account; wire, check, ACH (in US), withdraw to an already existing credit/debit card, and of course withdraw to the Paxum Mastercard (one of our most popular options).
At the moment the Paxum ewallet and Mastercard are both available only in USD. When clients use the Paxum Mastercard to make withdrawals there is NO ADDITIONAL PERCENTAGE ADDED to the Forex Fee. Many of our International clients truly appreciate this feature since it saves them a considerable amount of money.
With regards to the banks we use; we use the Bank of Montreal (BMO) in Canada, and we use the Choice Bank of Belize as issuer of our International Mastercards.
I'd be more than happy to answer any specific questions anyone has about Paxum so that you can have a clear understanding of our company and what we can offer you as a customer.
We also provide a full list of fees and limits on our site - www.paxum.com

PS - nanaimogold - we do not have any staff members on our team who used to work for Epassporte.
The owner of Paxum is Octav Moise, you can look it up if you'd like to. Chris Mallick has absolutely nothing to do with Paxum.
With regards to Michael Olsen; he worked for Paxum for a couple of weeks and then chose to take a position with a different company that was about to launch their own version of an ewallet payment service. That company is called Redpass.
Since Michael has not been with the company for more than 3 months, and his tenure with Paxum was so brief, it did not seem relevant to go into details. However, since you claim I was not being entirely forthwith I've just provided as much detail as there is in relation to any previous Epassporte employee working for Paxum. Michael's employment with Paxum was very short.
With regards to PhD and your suggestion that we crossed his palm with silver; I feel the need to point out that Paxum doesn't even have a referral program. We do not believe in those kind of tactics and have always preferred to enjoy word of mouth customers. We have not paid PhD anything to say anything that he is saying.
Heck, I don't even have the ability to send PM's yet!
I'm sorry you don't feel that you can trust Paxum enough to become one of our customers. It is up to every individual to make their own financial decisions and I respect yours. However, if you ever have any questions or if you change your mind and want to give us a try, I'd be happy to help you get set up with an account.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I hope the weather in Nanaimo is better nowadays than it was when I lived there!
This is all that is relevant on the first 10 pages. Nanaimogold does not provide any more prove and in fact does not acuse Paxum of bein owned by the scammer any more.
I have no relation with any of the companies involved here. That said, its a bit random that just after the MtGox/AurumXchange deal (http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=30982.0
), AurumXchange comes here to bad mouth the new Trade Hill partner. Hopefully you are doing with the best of intentions.
All I want to say is that if you are doing this to help the Bitcoin economy avoid another fiasco, thank you. But if this turns out to be one or various companies using bad tactics and spreading FUD and FEAR to damage competitors at the expense of the reputation of the Bitcoin economy, I promise you that I will use the little reputation I might have gather in this forums to spread the word so people dont use your services.
EDIT: There has been some serious "pr work" in the forums lately by interested parties, trying to appear as normal users. All this has to stop.
