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?
Some PGP public keys you should import: theymos, BadBear, Sirius, Stefan, Wladimir, Gavin, Gregory, Jeff, Pieter

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

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.


well what do you suggest we use for email. cause im using gmail and im not out to scam people. i've been using gmail since almost day one. does that make me a scammer.

Can't be too paranoid, have to convert the btc to real currency at some point afterall

Yeah I agree with you, this is a real world. it isn't Fair if we always think every new person
are the liar or scammer just like most of people in this forum... Huh

a Real businessman is a person who are willing take high risk to expand his business.

If Any One can't trusty, just consider to taking business with people from other planet.....  Grin

While I suspect that it's good advice, "trust no one" is a tough principle to build an economy, let alone a community on.

I hope we figure out how the Bitcoin platform can engender more trust.

One problem with BTC seems to be that its striving to be two things.

A new currency not susceptible to inflation but also anonymous.

The anonymity and security portion are what increase transaction times to 1000X what most people would consider reasonable, and make the whole system so complicated that only extremely technically inclined people can use it.

That's locking out most of the population and only adding to the liquidity problem.

Thus the creation of jobs, yes, bitcoin can create financial security officer employment positions. Let's say you know some people who want to drop a few thousand into bitcoin, just to invest, get their feet wet, be a "part" of the brave new Crypto Currency world, or maybe they like to gamble, or whatever. But they need security, they need to secure their bitcoins, or their litecoins, that's where the new position of Cryptographic Asset Security Management, (CASM), professionals step in and give those investors confidence that their bitcoin and litecoin wallets are safe, secure, and backed up in a safe location. Those people need advice, training and ongoing support, all for the everyday low price of just a fraction of a bitcoin, or two.

A user on reddit trusted a random scammer and sent away about 200$ worth of BTC:

Seriously. Don't trust the exchanges, don't trust online wallet services, don't trust your anti-virus software, and don't trust anybody online.
Yep! Few are listening though...

There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.
