What happened::
I ordered a Cube at .25BTC and this was the only fee stated on the website (Shipping was stated to be free). After a 2 days of hearing nothing, I contacted the company and they wanted more money to cover "extra fees" that weren't outlined on the website. I didn't pay these extra fees because at this point I knew it was a scam and didn't want to lose more BTC. I kept trying to ask them for a refund but they would give some nonsense response or not respond at all.

Pretty obvious it was a scam, why buy from a crappy site with no reputation?

Because I am an idiot and it was my first time buying a product.
I have learned from it and just wanted to put out the warning.

No scam has taken place, you just refuse to pay the tax. As soon as you pay the tax we can move forward. Pay 0.03 or lose 0.25 forever. I know what I would do if I was a rich American from the land of the free woo woo woo, etc etc.

This is the email I get back from them.
Don't hate on the USA.

Wow. Then why can't they give the 0.25BTC back? And why didn't they specify this "tax" before?

Exactly my point. I wrote those 0.25BTC off as a loss.
I learned a good lesson.

It good that you didn't lose that much. I always search for the reputaion of a website in this forum and reddit before I send money to them.

really wish I would have seen all this before I spent my bitcoins there they deleted my orders are 2 months another to watch out for is eastcoastminers.com they are the same company and they will take your money

and George Wilkins is in UK and he runs both of these shady companys

I just found a site says report these bitcoin thefts to http://sytech-consultants.com/

A UK-based digital forensic services firm, Systech, has begun offering a recovery service for lost and stolen bitcoins. The service is twofold: firstly, it will use its traditional forensic data recovery techniques to salvage coins from damaged hard drives. Secondly, it has also announced a tracing service for stolen bitcoins, which it hopes will enable victims to find out who tries to exchange stolen coins for fiat currency.

how did you find the link to George Wilkins?

We are under the impression you are a hun bastard so we decided to keep your bitcoins. What ye goanie dae aboot it ye horrible rancid wee west coast prick?
