Guys  please beware of scammers that are after your money. Bitcoin has a lot of luster that sometimes blinds you. People will play on a persons greed and  then start scamming you.

Rules to follow:-
-If it sounds to good  to be true, then its most probably a scam/ ponzi scheme.
-Never trust some one  just because you had a few trades  gone smoothly before, they will  usually try to gain your trust and then hit you when you least expect it.
-Make sure all your trades are done  in  public as records can be verified.
-Separate your trading  email from your  personal emails.
-Dont click on any links sent to you on a  trading email.
-Be very aware when  dealing with people  over the phone, there have been  attempts to get personal details through social engineering.
-And always use an Escrow.  Benson has been doing a  great  job with that so  use him for your escrow.

DON'T INVEST MORE MONEY THAN YOU CAN AFFORD TO LOOSE.  


I got a real strange call yesterday for bitcoin investment sounded shady.

+100 for escrow.

As Bitcoin is gaining popularity and gain value, scammers has all the reasons to invest their time here than doing those Credit Card Hotel trip frauds and donation frauds.
