a) people should start using heatware - it's pretty standard and people have been using it for years for trades / sales

b) we need a trolls section, that is heavily moderated - and mods need to start banning them (if they aren't already)
this,i bought/sold/traded right when i came to this forum and no one had a problem because i've got 50 positive feedback on heatware

nope, not gonna happen. i asked theymos for IP of the guy that scammed 9 confirmed people (maybe more), and best theymos did was marked him as "scammer" in the title.

best rule to avoid being scammed it to not give BTC as payment to new members that have very little transaction history. only use reversible type of payments in case something like this goes wrong. i learned that the hard way.

So...... apparently he's not a scammer, but he just ran off with my bitcoins without sending me anything? Awesome. -_-

so what kind of "investigation" did you guys do? if the guy got the BTC, did not ship the item, and never returned to say a single thing, it's pretty obvious. what did you guys have to investigate, and how did you do it?

1. There is no evidence that any Bitcoins were ever sent.
2. There is no evidence that, if the Bitcoins were sent, you guys aren't lying to get someone marked as a scammer. None of you are reputable.
3. There is strong evidence that this guy doesn't scam people.

Although no response to our query was received, that doesn't prove or disprove anything.

In order to mark someone as a scammer, the evidence has to be pretty strong. That is not the case in this thread. Of course, I would never personally buy something from this guy after this.

Quote from: ssateneth on July 31, 2011, 07:26:23 am
Very very attractive price. I'm pretty sure I want this.

I need to clear up something at insight.com first before we would exchange any BTC (they pulled a bait and switch on me trying to sell me 6570's when it was advertised at 5850's so I need to get my money back and the charge reversed before they even ship me anything)

I live in Wisconsin, USA. You said Ireland; would there be any particularly nasty custom charges you think?

HIM
Hey,

I've had that before, they sell you a 5850 but send a 6850 and then they say I shouldn't worry because the only difference is that the 6850 is newer... Like I would believe that Tongue. And now I don't buy anything any more in that shop Cheesy.

When do you think you will have the coins ready? It isn't a real problem, but it's just that I would like to have the card sold by the end of the summer Tongue.

As for the shipping, I don't think it will be a big problem as I don't send it in the original box and add to the shipping label that it is for spare parts or something like that. If you want, I can even take off the cooler to be sure. But you will need to reattach it once you have it and add some new thermal paste, I can also send some if you want (0.2 BTC extra).


Yours sincerely,

Evan Browne

I am hoping I'll get insight.com issue resolved by monday, and have my funds released by tuesday, so if all goes well, tuesday/wednesday.
As for detaching stuff, nah, just leave it as is.

Hey,


That's good to hear that you didn't lose your money.

Now, as for buying more coins or just mining it, how long would each take?  Tongue

And I'm sorry but I don't have any riser cables.

4 days isn't that bad, you can chose the method you like, but I expect the coins to be read at Sunday at last. If not, I'll search for an other buyer.

Do you agree with these terms?

Hey,

That's good to hear. Can you send me your shipping address, then I can prepare the package and maybe even ship it today.
Also, you can transfer the coins to 1J7Me6F7Y4FiJpA3kLWGCmp115KTJuBrqm.

At this point he doesn't reply to me at all. I tried his email, filled up his PM box here on forums trying to get a hold of him, and apparently he has an ebay profile evanbrowne94. I sent him this message

Hey,


Impressive profile you have there. I'm OK with waiting a few days, but if all your coins are on mybitcoin.com, I wouldn't hope to much, they're scammers.


Yours sincerely,

Evan Browne

Hey Peter,

You can transfer the coins now if you want, then I can still ship it today and then it will arrive on Monday (not 100% sure, but it probably will).
My local post office closes at closes at 5PM so we still have some time.

Something is missing in your story, since you sent the Bitcoins on the 8th.
