This guy copied and pasted several emails from Satoshi in this topic. But he put a Bitcoin address different from the address on the original email that you could check on Wall Street Journal.

The address he used 1ABLqJG8GC3qQyY8hZrQXWB2m2TzhNLHMs

The address on the original emails 1NSwywA5Dvuyw89sfs3oLPvLiDNGf48cPD.

Do some people modify Satoshi's messages with different addresses in an attempt to receive some bitcoins?

I think that guys himself is doing scam attempt, changed the BTC address and urging user to send BTC to check if it doubles.

The rumour about Satoshi triggering a "double return" payment to anyone sending BTC to him in the early days 2009 is probably a reflection of his generous nature rather than any actual code trigger.  Haven't tried it. Does anyone know of such a capacity in C++ code to trigger a x2 return payment? surely someone would have tried or else seen if Satoshi still around to use his BTC.

DT blessing needed there and I think forum also ban him, not for scam (as scam is not moderated) but for trying to spread rumors that in the end might damage satoshi reputation.

Nice catch, i thought the user was talking about some kind of bug on older Bitcoin client version.

I'm sure it's scam attempt & the user should be banned for it.

Of course C++ will double your bitcoins - that's why it's got two pluses.

Geez the scammers are getting more and more pathetic. I long for the days of TradeFortress and GAW.

Boy I sure hope this is the scammer's bitcoins, and that these bitcoins aren't actually sent to him by his victims. BTC0.83 is a significant amount.

If 60 is the total number of transactions that got him that amount, then it is most certain it was got from his victims as  tiny drops would amount to that. It's almost $3000 in today's btc worth. But I wonder why people even think there is free money for grabs somewhere. Only the greedy ones will continue to fall prey to this kind of schemes.

At this point I think a lot of desperate people are falling for this just because, well, they are desperate. This huge bear market has made a lot of people lose a lot of money so in a way they are like gamblers who lose a bit of money and come back with more trying to fix their losses.

This is actually hilarious. Can't believe that people who fall for this lame trick are capable of using crypto wallet...

Boy don't ever underestimate the greed of some people. The people who fall for these types of scams are the same kind of people who fall for schemes like BitConnect.

You need to understand the power of ignorance and desperation combined. Those that fell into the trick are not far from either ignorance or desperation or both.

Though I share the same opinions with the EOS shitcoin, you need to understand that not everyone here is born in a wealthy family and is in a first world country. I'm pretty sure BTC0.83 is a big amount of money for a significant number of people here, and definitely including me.

That is more than $3000, it might be insignificant to you but do you know how much money that is for a family in Africa or in Asian countries like Indonesia or Vietnam. I have talked with a few Indonesians in the past who work for Cruise Line Companies. After two contracts (6-8 months per contract) they can afford to build an entire house in Indonesia.

By the look of the spends it is likely to be an exchange or casino deposit address. The spends are all consolidated multiple inputs from various wallet addresses.
