Interesting. I see he's also shilling for the website sportsbet.io which I'm starting to believe scammed me out of about 1.5 btc by disabling my account for no reason while I still had active bets. Be very wary of any product or website this guy is promoting.
Please create your own thread in the Scam Accusations board.

BTW, the below doesn't make the website a scam. I'm pretty sure 99% of the betting websites request your ID in some cases. Even if they support BTC. Other than that, you didn't say anything or gave any evidence about what the website did.

Hmmm. If this site is rejecting withdrawals made by users and asking them to supply documents, this is just increasing my feeling this site is a scam. There's no reason why a sportsbook should need to ask for identity documents from customers. The point of using bitcoin is for anonymity.

stingers also have nothing to do with the website itself. He's just part of its signature campaign (which probably accepts users with a neg trust).

Actually, no. It's not normal for bitcoin betting sites to randomly ask for ID. And I've seen many people online confirm this. This is the ONLY bitcoin betting site that asks for KYC. And Of course I didn't provide full details in this comment because this thread isn't about sportsbet.io. It's about this  legendary member that's a scammer. I'm simply advising people to be cautious of any website this guy promotes since he seems to be a scammer. And sportsbet.io seems to be very shady upon doing some research.

I used to bet a lot in the past and most of them DO tend to request it. But anyways, when you started betting at the website, you accepted their Terms and Conditions. And this is what it says there:

8.4 We reserve the right to use additional procedures and means to verify your identity when processing deposits into your Member Account.

If that's why you're calling them "scammers", then you are the wrong one in this case.

ANYWAYS... We are both off topic here. If you want to keep discussing this, create your own thread.

P.S: Please stop with the cancer oversized font.

As far as I know, the value of account Legendary is greater than $150. Why could he do that?

He was already neg trusted. No one is going to buy a red account (most only do this to join signature campaigns, and 99% of them don't accept neg trusted users).

Also, Legendary accounts are not worth $150. It's probably WAY more (even now that you need 1000 merits)

That's not why I'm calling them scammers. I'm calling them scammers because I deposited money and placed bets then they disabled my account after placing the bets and have received no response from customer support. This isn't a simple case of where they're asking for ID to reinstate the account. And also, I could mention many bitcoin sites I've played on for a couple years and never gotten asked for ID: cryptogames, duckdice, cloudbet, nitrogen sports, satoshi dice. I still think a bitcoin site asking for this is very sketchy since like I said there's no reason for it unless they want to weasel out of paying money. Anyway, this is my last comment about this on this thread.

Exactly the way i was thinking before sending him the $$$ Cheesy . i mean with such an account rank and a little bit of brain and work you can make some good money !! .  look at all these Digital goods , the least you can do is to act like a middle men between too newbies ! make some profit . because by default NEWBIES " like myself" Cheesy . trust those  "Legendary" members based on the exact point you stated ! . it's common sense and simple human nature ! but it's all wrong in this forum ! Cheesy .  i have dealt with bunch of newbies and some were legit and professional ! . so this Rank shit is meaningless to say the least !. my brother was scammed by a localbitcoin paypal seller who has well over 5000+ reviews and over 1000 btc trades ! . guess for how much ? 500$ ! dude charged back and ran away ! . it was probably a big hit for him that made him run away " not the 500$" probably another HUGE hit that worth a couple years of working " my brother was just unlucky to be among those poor people who had pending transactions with that guy while he was planing for the big hit.  many people will act and be legit for a while for a BIGGER and LARGER scam-plan ! . you will be amazed when you see the numbers of previously-legit members including former escrow agents on this forum turned into scammers when they had the chance !. 

Money drives people crazy ! anybody may turn into a cold blooded scammer at any second specially when they can easily get away with it ! moral of story " as long as you on the internet the chances of getting scammed is relatively HIGH.

You shouldn't be trusting any Legendary/Hero member just because of his rank. Back in the old days (before merit), ranking up was pretty easy. You could just visit the forum every 14 days, post any nonsense and after some time (when your potential activity has high), you could post burst a lot of spam and rank up in a few weeks.

Not only this, but his account was also NEG TRUSTED. Which means that the account is useless to join bounties or signature campaigns. Thus, making any scam worth for its owner if all he cares about is money.

Before trusting anyone, you need to check his background. If the user doesn't have any reputation (or a bad one), you should never trade with him without a escrow.

Also, Legendary accounts are not worth $150. It's probably WAY more (even now that you need 1000 merits)

A legendary with negative trust was way less than $150 before the merit was introduced, I believe it was stingers lucky day that he got a deal of $150 for a $50 account at max.

Not all the time you can't consider someone as a scammer after seeing the red paint because it has gives for so many reason so you need to read the trust rating and also the reference link to identify the scammer or maybe some other reason.Initiallt the user stinger has give ret trust for merit abuse so we can't consider him as scammer but now he has scammed someone so the appropriate link will be added by the DT member to mark him as scammer.

Guess who is PMing me with BTC instead of making this shit right?

ETA: Shit made right I guess.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

The guy has a lot of scam accusations against it's a big warning sign, his being a legendary member is useless because people and campaign manager will not let them join their campaign so he is as good as a newbie to me he should be ban here I don't know if he is the real owner of that account.



BIG WINNER!
[15.00000000 BTC]

Sorry for replying late but I was in a situation when this deal took place and I didn't have any intention to scam anyone.  I have explained my situation to  mikeywith and solved all the misunderstandings between both of us. I have also apologized him for my mistake and have repaid the amount for which he had a loss.

I would like to catch the attention of all the people who think I am not trusted and gave me a negative trust rating for this.  I respect that many DT members are active here and are doing great work to keep the forum away from such type of frauds. But as this is already proved that I am not guilty please remove the red paint from my profile it really itches me Wink

Thank you for understanding everyone and also again a sorry for all the unconvinced caused due to this act of mine.

I think you should first do some research before just claiming someone a scammer and also know the views of the person once to whom you are pointing too.

I guess you should be banned from here for supporting a big Ponzi scheme like bitconnect!

Ok so just to clarify things to everyone here. I would like to report that "stingers" paid back the money "150$" that i sent to him. he texted me on telegram as well as on this forum explaining to me that had his own reasons and asked for my forgiveness.

now regardless of  his intentions or story of why he stopped replying. I do appreciate that he finally came and talked to me and of course paid my money back.

so from my side the problem has been solved and i do forgive him for what happened. i will also delete my negative feedback on his trust page.

 but again this is a lesson learned , never deal with anybody without escrow.

thanks to everybody for supporting my case and thanks for keeping this forum as safe as possible.


Mikey.

Honestly im surprised ANYONE even still deals on Bitcointalk, We all know a forum which encourages the SALE/TRADE of user accounts isn't to be trusted.
It has become common for accounts to be sold/hacked for scamming purposes, Its like the only reason the forum is still active lol.

Staff/Admins don't care its been proven time again, Sorry for your loss hopefully you'll learn from this experience.
