You pretty much have to just write it off as a loss. The silver lining is, I can take advantage of it for tax purposes now.

Mine loss was about 0,12 bitcoins.....

http://www.trafficestimate.com/btc-arbs.com estimates 600,000 visits over the past 30 days. Alexa ranking is 35,000 meaning that they substantiate each others stats.

Also going by the sheer volume of posts this is getting in such a short period of time, they must have amassed quite a large number of btc.

The first week of the Global Capital Alliance managing BTC-Arbs is complete. The transition is taking longer than expected, primarily due to an abundance of unnecessary customer inquiries. Our staff is working double time and will catch up over the weekend. Today's result is 1.3%.

LOL...yes, I'm sure they're quite annoyed and swamped by the abundance of panicked e-mails of all their members who have had 99.9% of their funds locked away in a "legacy fund" while they do their "transition." Meanwhile, not one of my messages has been replied to.

And no legacy funds transfer today.

Well if they wouldn't do this in such an idiotic way and they would release our funds, few would be sending this amount of messages.

Also I find it odd that I sent a message and got an immediate 4 word reply. I asked when was the next legacy transfer (48 hours ago), and within a few mins I got "I just did it". If there was a back log, why was he able to send me a reply so quickly?

25/04/2014 19:35   Your investments have earned you
24/04/2014 22:06   Your investments have earned you
24/04/2014 03:41   Legacy Fund Transfer of 0.0028

No return from investments!
Do start the procedure of anger!!! We have to tear the head's from his solders for paradigm! Suppose the Heads of bitcoin community had to take advance of that case and send a clear message to all that they will try to earn, stealing from others, that these is no tolerance for these actions.
Else many people will get out of btc community with the worst memories and even to fight back crypto-currency!

I guess it's not supposed to strike anyone as weird that they've had one week managing the site now and not a SINGLE thing has changed about the home page, the FAQ page or anything at all.

Wow! You put most of your retirement in btc-arbs? And to think I'm crying over a thousand dollars, guess I'm not doing too bad.

we have to fight back! all people here, we can press the Key guys of bitcoin and track the scam down. I suppose we pay the fee of transactions for a reason....Well, Bitcoin Big Buys, we know it is not your problem but bitcoin reputation is getting ruined by these scams...It is your call to stop it!

Hi, folks,

I sent these guys a support ticket asking for more information about what's going on. It seems strange to me that if they were bought that there wouldn't be an announcement on their top page, not just a message in their support center. Got no reply. Googling reveals nothing about the company that made the purchase or Ron James.

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. this is a weird scam to be sure, but scam it is. Please don't put any more money in with these guys and warn anyone you know who's thinking about it.

If this was even a little legit, then they would be giving us updates - particularly about how long it will take them to release our funds. Poor customer communication, especially in time of transition, loses customers. Lack of interest in keeping us informed a) says they don't really care about us since they're not really an arbitrage business, and b) they're counting on us to keep hoping so we don't go ballistic.

I'm sorry for anyone who has lost funds, but I just don't think it's realistic to think that these guys are legit.

At this point, I'd say they've pretty much removed all doubt. Now we just have to hope that somehow we are able to get some reasonable percentage of our money out.

I've had enough of you ignorant bastards doing nothing but spreading more FUD. It is not constructive at all and you have nothing of substance to offer. If it's a scam, let it be more than just your speculation, offer something the public may not know. How many times has the site gone down and the flood of scam evangelists rush to the forums with doomsday prophecy? I remember countless posts here and there about how it was all over, "you're all screwed", with tremendous confidence of those posters who never returned to apologize. Oh and just so you know - most of us were looking at this as very high risk and could afford to lose what was invested. We are adults (in most cases). Add to the discussion productively, with factual news, as everyone has an opinion. We don't care to hear about the 38 dollars you lost and we all should have known better.

Why go through all of the theatrics just to disappear with everyone's money? Well... If they ever were taking legacy funds via dollars, their identify can be tracked through the fiat banking system. So perhaps the strategy is discontinue fiat transactions, keep hold of as much of everyone's BTC as possible with this buyout, legacy funds narrative... basically stall the whole operation for a while, and then when they perceive they have enough distance from from the fiat services they've used (perfect money, solidtrust, ego) then, and only then, will they feel safe disappearing with the BTC.

If we've decided this is a scam, then people need to start filing complaints and running down the trail via fiat. This article about the suits against BFL references places online where people can start filing complaints (http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/04/digging-for-answers-the-strong-smell-of-fraud-from-one-bitcoin-miner-maker/). We'll probably never get our funds back, but at least we can create some problems for the operators.

And they're probably watching this thread... We'll see if my account is the next one that gets locked out.    Grin
