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.

There's a lengthy thread elsewhere on the forum detailing how this ruhvix character tried to scam luke-jr out of USD 7.25.

The problem with cashcow was finally solved. I have received my bitcoins. Please read Joe's explanation in cashcow's main thread.
 

Here is the copy of my post in marketplace about probable scam from the side of cashcow.no-ip.org casino operator joe. I will not recommend to try his service NOW. At least until he will appear on forum
and refund my considerable amount of bitcoins that never were sent to my withdrawing address.

Quote
Dear Joe and all community members,

I played today in your roulette under nickname "blin"
and deposit to my account 19Z2WWrqs5EGmPjnwmU4iSaau89D23ymsa
 1122 bitcoins in 4 transactions. I won 1274 bitcoins and
try to withdraw them to my address
13zjr29LsGNiVfxLX3Wuf75GrSqekkyhjz
 The system reported the funds sent but I can't see them no in
my bitcoin client no in blockexplorer.

Can you please help me to receive my transfer.

PS I did try to contact you through e-mail cashcow1234@hushmail.com
but hushmail reply that

<cashcow1234@hushmail.com>: host smtp12.hushmail.com[65.39.178.135] said: 554
    5.7.1 <cashcow1234@hushmail.com>: Recipient address rejected: Account
    expired (in reply to RCPT TO command)
Previously I did play on your site and never had any problems.
So in order to keep your good name and high level of trust to your service,
I ask you for refunding.

There might be a dude who is trying to scam me. He set up a refund-based escrow on clearcoin that will refund in 1 month if he holds his funds. I sent him a 300 video card with the understanding(at least on my part) that he would release the funds once he got a tracking number. He is claiming that he did not understand this condition at the time, and does not want to release, but my card is being shipped to his address regardless. I could intercept the package before it reaches him, but then I would be out 34 dollars over basically nothing, and I would not get my video card back for like a week. He is at this point in time refusing to give me any identification, like his steam, email associated with the escrow, or a phone number for "safety"(yet it was safe for him to give me his address). If I were to convince him to yield this information, then along with the escrow agreement, the value of the items being exchanged, and the written messages between us, would I be able to pursue legal action if he scams me? At the very least, will clearcoin do anything?


The forum member in question is "Dylan".

http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?action=profile;u=14767

He has 5 posts total, registered the day before our trade, and all of his posts are about buying stuff. Can anyone confirm or deny this person as legit? Is there a way an admin can get a transcript of both sides of our exchange of messages?

Dylan showed up on my scammer radar yesterday. I had not collected enough data to post a warning about him as of yet. I suspect that Dylan == Pompano, but again not enough data to support this suspicion.

I had actually suspected the same thing, their register dates are close and they both messaged me about the same item. I'm talking to Pompano at the moment.

So i've noticed that there is some Douche creating Lots and Lots of new accounts, And constantly makes simmilar threads related to buying PPusd with bitcoins, Everythread like this that i've seen, Has him talking to himself with Another account saying things like "thanks for the trade, Sent him the btc first"

Guys, When your gonna do buisness, Go look at the users "most recent posts", It should be pretty easy to pickout a scammer.
I've seen this Far too often and i went ona rage posting Useless BEWARE posts in all those threads, Needless to say they we're Appropriatly removed.

So, y'know, Be careful guys

I don't think "BEWARE" posts are useless at all - I've been doing the same with the "lastminer" scammer. It's a good idea to back it up with the "report to moderator" button, however - a scam post that's been deleted is better than a scam post with a warning attached :-)

Canceled a locked-in trade not 48 hours after we had made the deal because difficulty went up.

I'm pretty sure I've been scammed out of 30 BTC on BitcoinMarket by b4rrydoyle. I made three trades of 10 BTC for PPUSD, and b4rrydoyle immediately ordered a fourth. I asked him to provide some identifying information before I continued, and shortly thereafter all four payments were held by PayPal pending investigation of an unauthorized account activity claim. Knowing PayPal, I don't hold out much hope of ever seeing the money.

I've contacted Dustin in hopes that he can help me identify the perp. Listed email address is choupex@yahoo.fr. I will offer a 5 BTC reward to anyone who can verifiably get me this person's real name, home address, and telephone number.

I have had the same experience as Ian and my paypal account was limited (can't withdraw ANY money) because of it. They want me to fax proof of shipment.

It was the same user b4rrydoyle, user 5184 on BitcoinMarket.

If this is somehow a misunderstanding I will update this post and thread.

Anybody speak french and have an eBay account?  Try contacting the buyers from his recent auctions.  Explain that he scammed you and ask if they have a return shipping address.

Or if you want to get sneaky, explain that you are him, but you lost your access to Choupex2010 on eBay and to verify something for eBay you'll need a copy of the shipping label "you" used to ship it to them.

Here's who he has done business with on eBay... Best of luck hunting him down.

BTCbuyer https://www.bitcoinmarket.com/market/members/view/?market_memberID=6038

His reputation on BCM is all fake.

At first he sold 5 btc @14 lr on BCM which is the bait, then he told me he has some more for sale.

He said he had 200 more bitcoin for sell @14.4 and I have to pay him by LR first, I believed him and paid 504$ for 35 btc. After I paid he was off line.

His LR id : U0696054 (DzhunietDzhuniet)

His MSN and yahoo messenger: richielambert31@yahoo.co.uk

another email: richielambert31@yahoo.com  

I believe this is him: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?action=profile;u=17409

Could the admin in this forum check if his register email is which I posted above?

Paypal is as good as shit on the internet if you don't buy from a verifiable vendor (like eBay seller that has thousands of positive feedback).

It can be chargebacked too easily; I wont sell BTC even at double the spot rate to an unknown with a PP address. Even if it has a few dozen rep (some people don't mind if they can rip someone off good enough).

Wire transfer or WU is the way to go. Anything that can be chargebacked is simply stupid because it's inherently ultra-risky for the seller if neither party knows each other or has assurances of honesty.

Add on top of that the fact PayPal can legally freeze your account any time they want & they don't like Bitcoin, you would be stupid to use it for BTC transactions.
