There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

Do you have his contact information? (possible real name, email address, etc) if so post it if he does not respond today. That would be a week without contact from him to me.

A week?!?!

Allright, it's time for those of us in this thread to take this to the next level.

is what I believe his contact info is. I had him call me from that number, so I'm pretty sure it's his number. I'm going to try to reach him through the day, and I recommend anyone else who got scammed do so as well.

Please report back in this thread if you can reach him.

Yes, i last heard from him on friday after i transferred payment for two 5850s. He said he was going to ship the two cards on Tuesday of this week (being labor day and all) i pmed him on Tuesday night and heard nothing. I pmed him yesterday and heard nothing. Lets hope this is all just a misunderstanding. I will try as well.

thanks

Yeah, I was hoping it was a misunderstanding, but based on the fact that he's logging in (and obviously seeing all of our PMs) and not responding is a bad sign. Plus, the fact that he tried deleting his posts in these threads. Sad

That uber sucks that his phone doesn't work.

I thought, if anything, I would be able to do what I did to the last person who scammed me: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=28408.0

500 texts/minute adds up pretty quick to a phone bill.

That would be great. i am guessing that it is a made up address and his caller ID mask is just a random number in Maine.
