Agree with the main points.  In general this applies to any sort of transaction not even just with bit coins, although it is a bit more unique to bitcoins itself and this forum.

Ebay technically doesn't allow the sale of didgital goods, so they probably won't be able to help your case Sad.

Yea I really haven't had a lot of BTC pass through my PC but I do feel insecure. The exchanges I never use to hold my BTC i usually keep it in my btc wallet. Very good read, good and useful information for people to better secure themselves. The main thing I get concerned about when it comes to security is when I choose to buy stuff with bitcoins I really can only name a couple legit online stores to spend bitcoins.

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.


Trust nobody, ever. Whether friends or family. Known or unknown. Whether somebody has something to lose or gain. Do not trust anyone. Sometimes you should even question yourself.

Indeed.

INTERSANGO, the so called genuine 100% customer satisfaction etc exchange have recently blocked my account from sending bitcoins with an "incorrect address" message when sending, completely out of the blue to which I quized there customer services about this to which they acted all "I don't understand what's wrong" to which they shortly after LOCKED my account to which I had to chase them up to get "your account has been locked for breaching clause 5 (illegal use of bitcoins) further correspondence will be via support tickets".

Support tickets are supposed to be answered within 24 hours I have tickets outstanding for several days now. They refuse to answer my questions, including of course "how did I breach clause 5? please do tell".

If your ever thinking of using Intersango I would advise you to go elsewhere, the way in which they blatantly and egregiously scammed me of a fair deal of money is a disgrace.

Good advice for sure, wish I had read it before going through the current troubles I'm having with an exchange. I suppose 20 bitcoins is the price of a lesson learned.

Thanks for the heads up. A little common sense tends to go a long ways as well.
