I DO NOT TRADE on Telegram or Skype or Discord. The only place I trade is on here.
The person below is trying to scam Neo-Geo Sad



Glad he PMd me here before doing the trade.
Remember, just because you are paranoid does not mean they are not out to get you.

Impersonating isn't new on the forum. Scammers impersonate the popular user's username. For me, I don't believe anyone if send PM from any other source like Telegram before confirming via forum PM. But sadly, a few newbies don't know about such as scam attempts and eventually, they lost money. I have a similar case on Telegram where a scammer pretending me, even some of my clients lost funds. A better practice is, please add a note somewhere in your profile regarding this impersonator, so if someone visits your profile then they would notice this. At least a few users would learn from your profile.

I figure the I DO NOT TRADE on Telegram or Skype or Discord text below my avatar and the link for my website that points back to this post is good.
Beyond that there is not much we can really do. Can't stop all the scammers. Can at least try to slow them down.

If they try to scam anyone else and I hear about it, I'll post here.

Rather bold of this scammer to impersonate an established forum account that he doesn't have access to. We had two skype video chats and he even said he was willing to do forum escrow for the deal (his proposal), but it was really fishy that he had everything on my want list in high quantity.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5330037.0

He claimed to have 7 EVGA Kingpins (5 new, 2 opened) that he bought from Best Buy (limited to EVGA's elite members only), and is limited to one per household.
https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=24G-P5-3998-KR

Offered 22x iPollo G1-mini ASICs, yet it was limit 2 per original grin.mw forum member.

And claimed to have 2 of Innosilicon's 700+ MH/s Ethereum ASICs.

Prices weren't even that great, was asking full market value.

Had thick Russian-ish accent yet said he was from Oregon.

I agree, and I had an impersonator not too long ago that led me to include a note in my profile that I don't use telegram and to start a thread much like this one to warn the community.

And lol, this scammer claims he's you (DaveF) and is based out of Oregon?  Anyone who knows you knows you're on the other end of the country.  These moronic idiots don't even try anymore, that's how lazy and stupid they are.

Hopefully this dude didn't actually scam anyone using your identity (or anyone else's for that matter).
