Not me. I lost either $100 in the postal service or 140 odd BTC in a scam called bitcoin4cash.com, take your pick. What a welcoming way for my first Bitcoin transaction to go, way back in April. I tried contacting the guy, the only solution he could come up with was effectively "wait for it...wait for it..." until the order got "cancelled" by an "automated system" and he started ignoring my mail. It would have been worth resending for me, but how can I resend to a guy like that? I believe his alias is "Mad Hatter" on the forum.

Rumor has it that bitcoin4cash and mybitcoin.com were both the same guy.

I survived the MtGox event.
I have 2 wallets (Savings and Spending) - No Issues.
I have bought real world items using Bitcoins and had no problems.
As a merchant I have received Bitcoin with no problems.

Looks good from my end...

I excitedly made my first ever bitcoin purchase from btcdeals.com on July 1st. Five weeks later they're shut down, the owner no longer responds to email, and my purchase never arrived.

I don't know if I was a victim of a scam, or an irresponsible vendor. Either way I'm out 4+ btc.

I have not been scammed.

I lost about 4btc a few weeks ago because my Live USB Ubuntu went kaput and freezes at startup. The data is still intact when I mount casper-rw on another PC but it's encrypted. Anyone know how I can get my sweet Bitcoins back?

You didnt backup wallet.dat? Copy the file in a couple of cd's and you are set.

wallet.dat is still there. It's just that it's encrypted and I can't access it.

I have never been scammed.
I never lost any coins, unless you count the ones that didn't get mined due to a power outage.

I keep my coins on my computer in a TrueCrypt encrypted volume, which I only open briefly when I need to check my balance or send coins, and I make frequent wallet backups in a different encrypted volume on Dropbox, which gets automatically backed up to multiple physical locations (and to the cloud).

I've never considered storing Bitcoins in an e-wallet, and I only leave significant quantities of them (or of dollars) on an exchange long enough to execute a trade, and then I make an immediate withdrawal.

I had a few coins on Mt. Gox when it crashed, but I got them back through the claims process with no problems.

And, I sold all my coins prior to the market downturn of the last few days, although I am planning to re-buy as soon as the price bottoms out.

So, I haven't lost any investments or been scammed by anyone yet; of course, I could still lose money if I buy some coins and then the price crashes and never recovers... 

Also, I haven't yet recovered the full cost of my investment in mining hardware...  And it's starting to look like that may take a while.

If all the sovereign non-cryptocurrencies will eventually collapse from hyperinflation, you can't afford *not* to invest in Bitcoin...  See my blog at http://minetopics.blogspot.com/ .
