References only go so far.  They tell you that the person is not known to be a thief, not that they wont steal in the future.  Its like job references or a credit agency reference..  They should be used to reduce risk but you should not use them as a guarentee that someone is trustworthy.

This whole thing will never work if you can't trust the exchanges that you're poring money into. Mt. Gox, for example, is a place I think we can safely say IS safe, even if their registration requirements are a bit strict (need an id and proof of address). Other than them, though, I'm suspicious of everything.

In other words, Bitcoin is like Paypal. Don't send money to unverified strangers.
it's not necessarily about trust, but due diligence.

use a phone book, make sure the name matches the address, and the phone number is real. Call them.
Same thing people do with PayPal when verifying customers.

People who are identified won't be very likely to scam you.

you always need to start somewhere - just find who you think is the most trustworthy, invest a little trust in them and it will either grow from there or not - is that not just a basic lesson in life?

I don't trust any online wallets but I have to deal with them for now until the official Bitcoin client finishes syncing. Thank the net it's finally at 98%.

ya, like is the lack of trust why we have to post in the newbie section before we can reply to the thread that lead us to the sight?  Wow, it took me 3 months to figure that one out.   But this seems to be that place to be to hook up with fellow bitcoiners!

Being involved in internet business for about 10 years, I can agree to trust nobody. The minute you so, is the moment you first get taken advantage of. It's a cruel way to look at things, but the internet is full of scammers left and right.

What if you get asked by a wallet inspector?
