It appears that he's owned the domain bancoestadocl.info and used it to host a phishing site in 2012.

There's also a youtube account with the same username, but that's all I could see in common between them. It may or may not relate to the scammer.

Danny, just PM'd you the Dox.

Maybe you can use it to coax a return of
funds before you publicize it.

If you consider this as fulfilling the bounty,
you may donate the .5 BTC to the victim.

Damn, anyway to tag his address as scammer on blockchain?  I tried to write message but blockchain is not showing it in transaction.

Thank you.  The victim will certainly appreciate your generosity if this dox turns out to be valid.

I have registered on hackforums, and am currently participating in a discussion there to try and get this resolved.  I'll let you know if this dox information provides the necessary leverage to obtain a satisfactory resolution.

I have to step away from my computer for a bit.  I'll be back in about an hour or so to continue this conversation.

I'm happy that this forum can put great effort to help the victim.

Once in a while we need one less trolling thread.

No, but if I can get confirmation on the dox that I have, I'll be contacting the police.

U might consider to contact PIUK (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=17928) ...he may help. By the way, u seemed to have left some coins to the scammer's address...

https://blockchain.info/tx/d52b8299f75cbe83f6a5c1eabc280691b2dd55e338eaf58f47327b444c885fef

...any progress in tracking the coins with that ?

This is one of the open source investigation resources I've used many years ago.  Some of them are pay-wall, but most are not.  I've got a book of stuff like this to help.  I've used this to help resolve a lot of cases.  There is truth in the fact that a good detective never has to leave the desk.  However, people skills diminish rapidly.

This is sad to hear and shows once again how poor the average person's computer security is.  Multisig and hardware wallets are really needed. 


Totally agree.  The few people that I know personally who own bitcoin are not savvy enough or aware enough to do these things (most of my coins are in cold storage) despite my nagging.

This is what I'm hoping multisig wallets solve. For example, I picture users downloading wallet software like they do normally (e.g. Multibit) but to send any coins they must also plug in a separate device (like a variation of Bitcoin Trezor) to the USB slot to provide a second signature. It takes two signatures to move any coins, which means an attacker must compromise two separate device and software stacks, one of which may not even have an OS (again, like Trezor).

To me this is the perfect way to have top notch security, on par with cold storage, while maintaining simple convenient usage.

The problem we have now is a single private key provides total access. That's why existing solutions - cold storage, Trezor, Armory - try to isolate those keys. However, even these currently top notch solutions are not without concern. If anything happens to the private keys managed by any of these methods, again, coins can be quickly lost. It's simply moving the risk to another model (albeit safer, usually).

The real solution is to distribute that risk beyond more than one single point of failure. That's what multisig can do.

This may also be the result of weak entropy. If someone accidentally generates you your private key, then no multisig  or hardware wallet can protect U.

Yes, and working random number generators too.

It's actually amazing: to secure funds held at address 1xxxxx… the only thing that is required is that the big 78-digit number that unlocks the address must be kept a secret.  If no one peaks at this number nor guesses it somehow, then your funds are secure.  That's it.  That is bitcoin security in a nutshell.  But as we've seen time and time again, keeping those numbers secret is not as easy as it sounds!

Good way to look at it Peter.

One problem is that we're used to having all
our devices online, where using the number
once exposes it (which is why cold storage
is important)

People, don't jump into conclusions. Please.
Whoever thinks he got the dox on this guy, think about it twice.
This guy is more elusive than Carmen Sandiego.

This guy is a confirmed wannabe career scammer, and I found at least three different names (aliases) associated with themad2403@live.com
But he is definitely hispanic with some technical knowledge.
This case has to be threaded carefully.

People who dox some randoms here are a bit mad? If someone stole something for real go to police and they can subpoena the details if any.

I suspect he's in Souther California.  San Bernadino area.
