So he is a confirmed scammer? Wasn't sure if mistakes were made or bugs, that's why I was just sitting back and watching the thread.

not a mt. gox glitch, mt. gox confirmed that he doctored that screenshot.

he pm'ed me asking me for help and saying they are calling him scammer

He can help himself by paying back what he stole from me. I've done maybe 10 transactions with other members since this became public and no one else has any issues with trusting me DESPITE of this ongoing issue.

thanks for the advice. I usually do my homework before trading with somoene. I made a 1 time exception (he said he was in desperate need of btc LOL!) because he seemed genuine and i got screwed over.

Yea its just a shame so many people are so fast to rip the kind hearted people off. for me words mean nothing its all about actions. Not long after I started on the forums I Got a 3btc loan. I was surprised that people where so quick to give it out. I had the BTC in gox but at the time well Gox was down with the big hack.(it was to buy a video card).

Have noticed a lot more scammers around this last month tho.

I hate these threads! Really mess you think people are overly trusting with people they don't know. Also, post count isn't really an indication of trust at all. Look at LEON, he had 100+ and was a scammer and tecshare started out in his forst post offering his service and he isn't a scammer. I think people should start off with smaller trades. not 10 btc to a stranger.

Yeah, it really is too bad there are so many scammers - it just makes things harder for legitimate traders.

With all due respect, there are not any more or less scammers than there always have been; people in the Bitcoin community are making the mistake of treating it like monopoly money due to the ease of transactions. In a world of idiots absolutely determined to part ways with their money with anyone who claims they're 'in a hurry', I have real trouble forming any kind of sympathy.

Was everyone here born yesterday? Did no one here ever deal with eBay/Paypal scammers for years leading up to Bitcoin? Why is everyone constantly 'surprised'? And on the other hand, why when people try to start a service or protocol to stop this kind of scamming does everyone jump to conclusions and call it a scam?

This community is extremely 'diverse' to say the least.

It's my 1st time getting scammed, been trading for at least 5 years now... Most people generally only learn a lesson the hard way.

Recommend using Heatware or if they claim to have eBay or any other type of feedback, verify it by messaging them through it.

Sorry about your loss. Learned the hard way myself, long ago. Be safe.

You're damn right, if you fake a screenshot, do it good. I always make it so they can't see it was edited in any way! Hmm, maybe I shouldn't have said that in public Grin

Did my words move you? Or did they bring you to enlightenment? Feel free to give some ฿ to me: 1DKMAfeDswYf9MFjWxjPCfjEVkgmXvnizo

Bitcoin.  Bitcoin never changes.

Do you know what it's like to be built this way?
With only the power to push others away?
