*Said with respect* Wink

So I came across this account sale thread.

Given the provided information,, especially the amount of Merit, what are the odds you guys could narrow down the potential list of accounts.

I am making an assumption that this individual has only received 17 merits. I believe this to be true because, and correct me if I'm wrong, the other option is 267. I think that Hero close to Legendary started with 750?? Can't remember where I saw that. Regardless these larger numbers of Merits received should make it simpler to identify the account.


Not sure what could be done regardless of how well the list gets narrowed down but it could generate a shortlist of accounts to watch to prevent a green trust legendary account from changing hands.

Given the details of that post, i run this search:

Code:
select '<a href=https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=' || userid || '>' || userid || '</a>' as Sender,* from userdata WHERE trust like "%+4%" and rank like "legendary"

in here: https://albertoit.github.io/Merit-Explorer-SQL/

then those registered in 2014 are:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=265048
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=339270
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=349097
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=354479
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=383795

Well actually none of the info of these is a match...

even if you come up with a match, it could not even be guilty but just a way to get the poor guy banned or red trusted, there is no certainty he really owns any account till he hand it over.

At only 0.02BTC for a green trusted Legendary account, my guess is he's just hoping to scam someone.
I've tried to pinpoint accounts from auctions before, but I never found a match.

I kinda expect a real account seller to leave out the details, say: 2400+ posts, 1600+ Activity. That protects the account. So I expect the ones with exact details to be more likely to scam instead of owning the account.

I understand what you are saying, my thoughts on the matter is it could possibly create a short list to monitor for an email/password change and then further for changes in posting habits.

It was a long shot regardless. Just seems like an account you wouldn't want switching hands.


Now that I think about it, this could also just be another scammer trying to lure someone in with a sweet account.

Edit: Loyce beat me to my epiphany  Wink
