I add GIFTOMATIC on Biddingpond.com to the scammers list.  He has taken by money on an auction and not shipped or responded.  I have proof of payment as the payment was forwarded by the site itself.

Is it safe to assume someone who has -20 otc rating is a scammer?

http://bitcoin-otc.com/viewratingdetail.php?nick=kettchxxii

we did a small transaction, he left me a 10 rating, but he never completely fulfilled the agreement, though I told him it was fine if he didn't as I was a winner either way. I don't have my password so I couldn't leave him a rating, but it would have obviously been 1 as the value was only 15$ or 4 BTC. Seems all he was doing was abusing of the WoT

justcause told me I had won an auction for an Amazon gift card. I had let him know in advance that I would escrow the funds via ClearCoin if I won, so I did so with a charity escrow. He wrote back asking "how do i know when i send  you the gift card you wont just run away with it" implying he wanted me to send him the bitcoins first. I made it clear there was already no way I was getting the money back, so I couldn't have any motivation to scam him. He then wrote back saying he had lost everything on his hard drive, including his bitcoin wallet and amazon gift card codes, so he couldn't complete the deal. I asked how long it would take him to get a new gift card and he said 1-2 months. When I told him we could still complete the deal and it would save him from negative feedback, he became quite belligerent.

I can't say for sure that justcause intended to scam me, because if he lost his wallet he really can't receive the BTC I've escrowed. But at any rate I won't do business with him again. Even if he is telling the truth, he should have eaten the cost of his error.

The user "Eagle_", as mentioned in IRC, is pulling dirty tricks to attempt to scam

May 06 13:17:21 * Eagle_ (5db6963e@gateway/web/freenode/ip.93.182.150.62)

He sends an e-Check from Paypal that takes 3-5 days to process and clear both parties. However he demands instant payment. What would then happen is he can cancel the send at any time. Paypal advises you not to ship until payment clears.


I did not fall victim to this, as I politely asked him to wait for the check to clear. Later the check was cancelled, as I expected. Had I sent him the BTC he was asking for, I would have lost money

Lesson: Do not accept e-checks.

e-checks are fine if you wait for the payment to be cleared. but paypal is never safe with bitcoin transactions as he can dispute it

I was scammed out of $19 (PayPal, not BTC) by Thomas Lopez of Los Angeles, California who has posted as Vwlopez3 in this forum (although I doubt he will continue to use that handle from here on out). His email is vwlopez3@gmail.com.

He took my money and did not provide the service promised. Emails sent over the past week and also a PM sent through this forum have been ignored, so I am posting here to warn others.

Thomas, if you read this, I would be happy to delete this post if you return my money.
ROFL he scammed for 19$? must be a 13 year old kid. alert Paypal, dispute if you can, and throw in that he is a minor Smiley it may or may not be true but they might freeze his account xD

Addition to my previous post regarding  CajunTechie -> Anthony Papillion <papillion@gmail.com>


Has anyone noticed that he requested I remove my post but kept his up .. forcing me to defend myself from his attack.

CajunTechie is definitely a  scammer and a liar ... no maybes.

Come to think of it .. he scammed me 2 times ...

First scamming me out of 225 BTC that he still owes me,
then scamming me on the posting here.

This thread is one of the first things a bitcoin-trading newbie should read.

Met my first scammer in #bitcoin-otc a few days ago going by the name of Quizzy. He asked me to send my bitcoins first and when I sent them he suddenly disappeared without paying. I let my guard down because he had a cumulative rating of 3. He ripped off 5 btc out of me nonetheless.

I have been trading for a few months and just encountered my first scammer (luke-jr - Luke Dashjr luke@dashjr.org). Beware, he's also operating a mining pool which is setup as a front to scam miners out of their profits. This guy will try every devious method to lie, cheat, and steal.

Seeing as though luke-jr is a very well-established member in this community, and has only positive ratings in the WOT (including a rating from Keefe, the most highly-rated member of the WOT), some evidence is in order.
