What happened:
I stumbled upon a new user asking for help to transfer his Satoshi. It turns out he was using a faucet site that doesn't pay.

Scammers Profile Link:
Coinfast Faucet

Reference Link: Faucet - Thread with many complaints

Amount Scammed:
At least 0.0015BTC per user who doesn't receive payment. They claim:
We pay 0.02 BTC to our users daily.
If I multiply that with 3 months, the total amount would be 1.8BTC.

Proof of no Payment:
User shafi8466 posted this:
18Cpdza6bdXsLoLkWJAw8ZPZbK7ZLvQGVB I EXPECT THIS MAY BE PAYING....! Faucet Scam Proof

I've personally verified his claim, by using his Bitcoin address to access the site (it felt like the early days of the internet again with many porn popups).

Additional Notes:
The scammer has abandoned his Bitcointalk account, and doesn't even delete scam accusations from his self-moderated thread anymore. But, his thread still gets bumped, so I'm creating this thread as a reference to leave him red trust.
