What happened::

a few days AGO BTC exchange price went up and suddenly my 0.17 BTC was wurth 130 US$
so i wanted to cash in quickly and saw on one of these free BTC sites an advertisement of BITPAL

http://static.a-ads.com/system/ads/3256/banners/728x90
which links to -> https://bitp.al/

Scammers Profile Link:

Didn't find any profile .. no issue that i could find on google
and this site gives positive feedback
http://bitcoinfeedback.org/viewuser.php?un=bitpal&id=745

Reference Link:

https://bitp.al/

Amount Scammed:

only 0.17BTC but i spend like eternity to get to that amount

Payment Method:

BTC to Paypal
Never received my money

Proof of Payment:

https://blockchain.info/tx/8d5b6b7048776799b4bcba8293e0adbb469e0c3c7f15859b43e0ebe656927a61


PM/Chat Logs:

Send a lot of messages on their "contact us" link and a few emails to btc@bitp.al
but no answer ...

Additional Notes:

I am pretty new to BTC so i have no clue if there is a way to get my money back ?

Bitcoin transactions are irreversible .
Unless they want to send you back the btc , or the paypal equivalent , there is nothing you can do (for that amount).


Also I wouldn't trust a third party user review website.

When did BitPay start accepting PayPal and start buying and selling bitcoins. If I'm not mistaken, that's not their business model whatsoever. They are a payment processor. That is all. You can't even go to BFL's office and buy and sell bitcoins, for I've asked Josh prior to going to KC if he could do it, whereupon the answer was no due to regulations, of which is very understandable.

These kind of scams grow like mushrooms,but due to btc's nature it's impossible to chargeback a payment and mainly you have to try to contact them and posting here and there until they respond,but if they are total scammers not much can be done.

Bitp.al is a scam. That feedback site is a (live?) clone of http://bitcoinfeedback.COM/ and the feedback you see there is actually feedback left for coin2pal.info (replace '.org' with '.com' and you will see: http://bitcoinfeedback.com/viewuser.php?id=745 )
