So it seems your service will not help this sorta of thing...   Well thanks for trying to hijack my thread and promote yours. Anyone have any helpful and useful ideas other than http://btcrow.com/ ?

Are there really no good ways to buy goods with bitcoins?  Is this not a huge flaw in the system? I have bitcoins, I want to use them... I cant... Why am I doing this again?

I know you are trying to bash Andrew Bitcoiner, but what you are repeating doesn't make sense. There are several online shops and services that accept Bitcoin for starters. Check out https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade . (EDIT: Check out escrow services there. I've only used ClearCoin but I think using BTCrow is pretty safe if we aren't talking about an extreme amount.)

I have traded with people I know from forums using other methods as well, it's always a risk, especially if the person you're trading with is not known to anyone. If it's bank wire, the buyer takes the risk, if it's paypal it's the seller.

I got a PM from this dude asking me for a loan.

Anyways, this is my guide to not getting scammed.

a) use heatware - it works
b) low/no feedback - have them ship first, if they won't then you won't get scammed
c) profit.

i've only been scammed once in 15 years, off ebay - this guy bullshitted on shipping me a single broken turntable instead of two and by the time it'd gotten to me the 30 day window of paypals retarded policies had passed. i was out $500 bucks, sucked, but i learned a valuable lesson.

I said "What?" I never said you are a troll.

Yeah, it turns out he is a scammer and you knew this a while ago yet the members of the forum did not. Did you make a post about him other than after I was scammed? Is there an area where scammers are listed? How can we let people in the future know about this? Im not happy I lost bitcoins on my first ever use for buying them. If this is going to last we need to figure out a reasonable way for people to buy and sell things. Waht is the point of money if we can't use it? Bitcoin should be the best currency option for international trade if not most trade on the internet. However right now its not close to being ready for the average citizen to use.

I have to ask why you chose to send cash to a random stranger when there is no way to get it back if that random stranger rips you off? This is not a problem with cash.

TyGrr. It's called common sense. Only trade with people who have cred/rep. If they don't, tell them to ship first. If they won't - you should be happy, you just avoided being scammed.

Yes, That is what I am talking about. I would be willing to help with this project. I do not have the programming skills but could help manage it, also help fund it. Anyone interested?

Where is this escrow service you are talking about? Thank you.

Moneybookers  now has a escrow service which I think should  be used now for anything over $175
