As a heads up, don't buy from this guy.
This guy just scammed me 24 BTC for an iPhone he never sent. The only "proof" of shipment I have from him is a PM saying on August 12th "I just dropped off the phone in the mail."
No tracking number or anything. It's been 3 weeks and I have yet to receive a shipment.

I've been PMing him since and I have yet to receive any reply and it appears that he hasn't been online for 2 weeks now.
However, it does seem that he is keeping busy on his website:
http://www.teamw.in/main

I've been trading online for over six years now and this is the first time I've been scammed. Not a very pleasant first experience here at bitcointalk.

I will try to message this guy on his website, but before I do, any advice?

All input is appreciated, thanks for listening to my rant.

I think (I'm kind of lazy to check my forum and I flushed my DB last night) he bought a game from me...

It's all about the game, and how you play it

The best thing you can do is get ahold of anyone else he's done a transaction with, collect some evidince and get ahold of a moderator. NothinG is it possible he bought the game using stolen bitcoins? if you can come up with the tx date that would help clarify that.

I think I'm going to hold off on buying anything else with BTC, it's just not worth the risk.

I lost 24 BTC from this guy, hopefully no one else will follow my footsteps.

It's disgusting how much time and effort people put into scamming. Go find a real life, losers.

It appears that they may, indeed, be the same.

Did any of you ever send or receive PayPal from him? I'd like to combine these cases, if possible.
