I'm just saying the people that has these info out in the open, is more trustworthy, and that's a basis to build trust on. Also these US based info are often
traceable if a high dollar amount crime was committed (in the tens of thousands).

Assuming the people who pays the cops want to help you trace it, and assuming they acknowledge BTC theft as money and not just some stupid kiddie's coins in some virtual game Cheesy

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

Show me a list of services or websites that provide only an e-mail address and no phone number and you will have your list of untrusted sites.   Pretty simple rule I have always used with online transactions.

Not exactly, I've got all my contact details for the net on glbse.com, I COULD give a phone number but it would only be for a mobile in China (do you guys really want that? should I add it?).


I am not saying that since they have a phone number they are indead trust worthy.   I am just saying if they do not even list one I do not give them the time of day.   If I had a business and was short on customers I'd surely publish one.
