I am currently in a margin trade and I want to do another. Asking for 0.1btc.
Once my margin hits, I will repay straight away. If I do not hit my trade target or I get liquidated,
I can trade my XTL to BTC and repay you back (been mining XTL for quite some time, I have ~5MM and its current value is 5 satoshis.

I have other altcoins which I have mined and hodling if you'd prefer over XTL. I only listed XTL as they are on some larger exchanges like stex

NOTE: I have also asked for this loan in the Shashan thread. Request is open to whoever can fulfill first.

APPROVED

Great find. His account already got nuked it seems.

But the fact that there is an attempt at this means that this scam is probably going pop up in the future under a different account name, by the same scammer. So be on the watch out if you are taking out collateralised loans from any lender on forum. You don't want to be out of pocket for money that you thought you were going to get a loan on.

You should always make sure that if you are sending collateral in a loan to either an escrow or the lender himself, that you have a signed message containing the address first. That ensures that the account sending this address isn't compromised or an impersonator, and should be regarded as standard practice.

Thanks magneto! I saw it and had to do something. I've seen too many people lose their coin! You were right too about it happening again. Another zazarb impostor showed up on that thread today! What lowlifes.

Not surprisingly. As I said the fact that he was able to do it on one account means that he will be able to do it on many others.

I'd expect to see impersonators for other lending services as well even though right now this attack seems to be targeted to zazarb. Though I doubt that it's going to be successful given the ease of which this type of scam is able to be spotted.

As a result, their targets are most likely going to be newbies. So if you are new to this forum, and unfamiliar with the forum, always double and triple check because you are most prone. Don't be afraid to ask around if you're unsure.
