I have just sold to him some BTCs via foreign wire transfer. If he pays, he cannot then cancel the transaction, right?

I've seen him on bitmarket.eu. His prices are much too good to be true. Cancel transaction.

@stemby Have you been paid?
No, of course. I think I will wait 3-4 days.

the problem is that when someone buys on bitmarket.eu the bitcoins are "frozen". if you try to cancel the transaction the buyer also has to agree and grenouillette40@gmail.com doesn't agree to the cancellation.
so unless bitmarket admin doesn't manually cancel the transactions the bitcoins are "frozen" and can't be used.

Hey everyone,

This person is indeed a scammer. I am just in the process of cancelling all transactions - looks like the guy was dumb enough to use his real ebay account and IP address to get verified. He's not getting away with it easily.

Bitalo.com coming soon!

Awesome! First scammed via paypal, now moneybookers :S My moneybookers account was closed (cannot get a clear explanation from them, they are being cryptic) and all transactions reversed.

Have you ever thought about incorporating AlertPay?

It is ridiculous that almost 50% of bitcoiners are only in it to scam the newcomers, scare them from the currency, and then our market diminishes.

Issues like this are what i'm trying to address in my 'why bitcoin' thread. It's why I'm very hesitant about BTC as viable for the average consumer.

If you had stopped at "... in it to scam the newcomers"  then I wouldn't be chuckling to myself right now.

Either way it isn't at all ridiculous; it's entirely predictable – it's the invisible hand of the free-market at work.

ClownCoins are just like Bitcoins except when they arrive they make a huge bang and then the wheels fall off. Oh, wait...

There will be always scammers - one will do it in big - like mybitcoin and mtgox

others will do it in small like this one here.

At the end - we end customers will be f...d up - that's the sad truth Sad

My moneybookers account was closed (cannot get a clear explanation from them, they are being cryptic) and all transactions reversed.

I emailed Moneybookers pre-emptively after reading similar cases. They replied with an explicit warning to not use Moneybookers account for Bitcoin purchase (or sale), due to the likelyhood of said account being suspended. Sorry for off topic OP, just wanted to chime in to mention this.
