I do find it amusing there are a 100 pages of posts saying "thanks" and "great advice!" Here's another one.

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...

P.S. Sorry for trolling 5 posts to get by the no trolling limits--I do have more specific discussions to get to....

No body trust newbies. Even when they have been lurking since the last bubble burst.

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.
