Well I’m only putting this here because I’m curious. A few days ago- a user (Tekno2020 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1356468 )
And I decided to do a trade with escrow for my Bitmain coupons. All went well until Tekno2020 sent the bitcoins to escrow. We both have seen minerjones online each and every day. We thought maybe he was sleep but I’m starting to think otherwise. But just now.. a user “anonymousminer” just sent us a message saying this :
Hello members,

Minerjones has asked me to reach out to both of you as he had a real life emergency and will be back Monday to release funds.  The BTC has confirmed and the coupons can be traded.  

-AM


Then when I tell him that I don’t trust it he says this:

It is 100% legit and I understand your hesitation on here.  MJ is like a brother, which is why I know this information and he asked me to pass it along.  Look at my first trust entry..... it should validate what I'm saying.

-AM

I’m beyond worried for both of us.

I’m beyond worried for both of us.
May be he is telling the truth judging by the feedback left for him from minerjones (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;u=1668017)


Of course you have the right to investigate more but if I was you then I would not hesitated. Hope this helps 


I could not stand the lies against me anymore. I can not prove them wrong too. It's better I live in peace.
So, I am willingly locking mdayonliner. Thank you BitcoinTalk. Be addictive, be a Bitcoiner.

If it were me, I would have to wait. I'd be concerned the anonymousminer account may have changed hands.
What address were funds sent to by Tekno2020?

He seems to be using the same address but there is an odd change in writing style on anonymousminer images recently... from March:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3082512.msg31792680#msg31792680
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3084424.msg31814648#msg31814648

and then in May, a new style 7 & 8 recently, as well as the "th" being included:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3619222.msg36589591#msg36589591
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3631376.msg36630837#msg36630837

Personally, this would be enough to make me nervous, given the circumstances.

Yep, that's suspicious and I've seen this before along with the stalling tactic of having a "friend" contact one of the parties to the deal.  A while back gameristo got scammed for some PP funds, and this is exactly what happened.  I'm hoping for your sake that this doesn't turn out to be a scam, but I'd be more than a little suspicious if it was me.

How much was this deal for, anyway?
$2800
Yikes.
$2800 is exit scam worthy- which is why I’m worried.
I agree--it's "worth" ruining a trusted account for if one was dishonest and inclined to do it.  Again, I do hope for your sake this isn't the case.  It's just awful when all the senior members harp on using escrow to avoid scams, and then the escrow ends up pulling an exit scam.

I need to see a transaction from Tekno2020 showing he sent funds to minerjones, otherwise it didn't happen.

According to their profile, Tekno2020 uses 31pDmi6PDdHFUT51MTzJNYacxYMZp2bi58
I don't see any transactions recently showing funds going to minerjones and am not seeing a transaction worth near $2800.

Did you actually get a message directly from minerjones or did you get a quoted piece of text from Tekno2020 saying minerjones agreed?

Funds were definitely deposited on the escrow address that minerjones gave me.

https://live.blockcypher.com/btc/tx/238092dc558bb6931fc31aad25284e5a4601979349facbb9e560f4ce650cd77a/

It did happen.

minerjones replied pretty quick to pms before the deal,,,, then once we were in the deal he ghosted.  He has been incommunicado for the last day and a half.  Then we both got the message above from 'anonymousminer' that minerjones has had an emergency? 

I mean wtf.

minerjones account has been around since 2014,,,, are people that hungry around here to forfeit a Top 3 escrow position around here for some low level scam.

We both got a message from minerjones confirming that he will escrow the deal.

Also dude, ibminer,  you need to get clear,,,, I am the buyer and the one with 2800usd at risk here.  If anyone is being scammed at the moment, it's me! Hopefully no one is being scammed and minerjones has actually had an emergency!!!

 Just because Kraven has opened up a thread does not mean he is being scammed.  I could have just as easily posted, but thought it was a bit premature to post publicly and bring this to the community.

 Please read.

Payment was made.

There has not been any accusation against me, ibminer, so remove your red stripe.   Why don't you go and tag minerjones account?!

I do not personally know Tekno2020 but i have transacted a good amount of  money with him. he delivered what he promised in time.

I do not think he should be getting a negative review on his wall.

Eh, yeah.  I'm not sure why he got a negative trust from ibminer, either.  I read this thread from the beginning, and if anyone is deserving--at least temporarily--of a neg, it's minerjones.  Props to Yahoo62278 for trying to contact him, and let's hope this doesn't turn out ugly.

Hey fellas,

I have reached out to minerjones on another channel.  I am 99.9999% confident nothing to worry about.

1.  He is traveling, i know this for a fact

2.  He and anonymousminer know each other in real life for decades

3.  He has way more of my monies than the 2800 usd being discussed and i have no concern.

Stand by please.....

To err is human, to moo is bovine...
