The highest bid price for my mtgox account is 1,5 btc yet. Thank you guys. If you have a serious offer pm me.

Just curious who would be foolish enough to give you 1.5BTC for nothing in return.
nothing? 1000+ btc!!! But its on mtgox, thats true.

Actually there isn't anyway to verify your offer.   You can give an incorrect password or there is a multitude of other ways you could scam someone here.    For example your account could be verified and payment might go out in fiat.   A screenshot doesn't prove anything.   Unless MtGox comes back up you really don't have any proof.   If MtGox comes back up then you could sell through something like the BitcoinBuilder site and get far more for your BTC than 1%.    https://bitcoinbuilder.com/   Actually they are still buying and selling and it looks like you could get a lot more than 1%.  Probably about 4% total.

You deleted my suggestion.  That isn't the behavior of an honest person.   You could have replied to it on your thread.   If you had it wouldn't have raised any red flags.     

However, your story doesn't ring true, even now there are many buy orders on the Bitcoin builder site.   You just have to sell at the price people are willing to buy.   For example I was an offer for 1111 BTC @ .036 BTC.   That would give you 36 BTC, far greater than the 10 BTC you claimed you were trying to get.
