I'd like to put out a 5 BTC bounty for whomever can reveal the person behind premiumBTC@gmail.com--they gave me a lovely welcome to the btc world---and I'd love to thank them for it in as public a way as possible...
The fact that he uses a GMail account should have been your first clue.


Actually we were texting his number is/was +1 647 795 3222. Number appears to be disconnected now...

Only got an e-mail after payment was sent. Unfortunately headers were scrambled on that e-mail so there's not someone with my relative lack of sophistication can do...

Wtvs life goes on... Now I will always use escrow and be more careful of encryption with wallets etc... Tough intro to the world but I'm certain that my complacency would have been more painful in the future...

Best,

Um, okay...


Then what Wallets do you suggest? Which security systems do you approve? I mean, if we as newbies are not supposed to enact trust on vets, then WHY in Pygmie nutsack should we even venture into the world of BTC?

BitcoinHarlemite some trusted Bitcoin wallets are Blockchain.info , Electrum , and the Armory . The armory is probably the most secure wallets out of them all, it's for storing large amounts of btc.

It's quite sad to see people do this.
I mean come on, where's the satisfaction of having money that you haven't earned.

I feel so proud just when i see my balance raise by 0.001 Smiley.
Anyways the guy is right, shouldn't trust people 99% anywhere online.

The irony is that merchants LOVE bitcoin because you have to trust them to deliver; you can't chargeback.  So if you really trust no one, the bitcoin economy is pretty much doomed. It's cash except the advantage is that it can be transmitted without being face to face, but if you because it's not face to face, you won't hand it over? So... bitcoin transactions only in person?

This reminds me of playing eve online, a few very expensive items that could not be traded except through trust.  The solution was escrow services offered by prominent members of the game, it got to the point where offering the service was very profitable.  Which forces the person to follow through with the transaction and not scam the exchange due to the loss of revenue from no one again using their services.

Someone should setup themselves as an escrow service with a fee and maybe even turn it into something very automated and commercial if it takes off.  I look at Visa and Mastercard as escrow services them selves which allows the economic wheels to be very greased and fluid.

What's the point of bitcoin if you have to be so paranoid?
To actually hold onto your coins long enough for your investment to pay off, you need to push the paranoia up to the tinfoil-hat level.

Love it... roflfmao. reminded me of Fry Farnsworth immediately.
can i use it as a sig?

Good advice. Trust no one.

Can you seriously state you trust that advice? Grin At one moment or the other one still needs to trust someone when operating with bitcoin or any other currency. It's actually just about minimizing risks and being sceptical.

I wonder whether contacting the police would help in most countries.

This is a great post (at least the first couple pages) for someone new to Bitcoin like myself.
I'm glad it was one of the first posts that I read on this forum.

I did not bother.. They have much more important things to do and I am pretty sure the guy who scammed me is not in Australia
