Recently, people who have been inactive for a long time have been requesting loans out of the blue. These accounts have been compromised. At this time, we believe that the accounts used the same password as what was released back during the MtGox hack. We are marking these accounts as scammers as soon as we see them, but there are several that we've missed. If you see someone request a loan after being largely inactive, REPORT THE POST AND CONTACT A MODERATOR IMMEDIATELY.

This is the list we have:
bitbetter
Gluskab
brunoshady
killer2021
kuba_10
Sjalq
madload
darvil
epii
Clarithium
borito4
tachi641
pharno
Iyeman

If the account is no longer marked as a scammer, that means that we believe that the original owner has taken back the account. However, you should still ask for extra identification before transacting with any of these people.

An admin should run the password list against logins and see if they match (probably many more have been cracked since the original publication of passwords, they might be circulating in underworld circles). Also, inactive accounts that have email addresses on that list should be locked, with email confirmation to reopen (supposing the pwnd person didn't use the same pw on here, mtgox, AND email...)

Another trigger for investigation should be a password reset after long inactivity. Inactive, reset pw, post for loan: lock.

Recently chris200x9 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=3079) came onto IRC asking for a 2 day 5% loan.  He said he couldn't identify and he couldn't auth.  If you look at his lastest posts (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=3079;sa=showPosts), you will notice a large 5-6 month gap between June 2011 and December 2011.  If he can auth or identify, then I would retract this post.  However, as of now, his identity is shaky and I wanted to warn anyone considering loaning to him.

This one is pretty obvious:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=61781.0

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

is there anyway to be taken off this list once the admins recognize I'm awesome? If not, character assasination.

If you can identify on IRC and/or GPG Authenticate on #bitcoin-otc, I would be more confident in trusting you, as would everyone else.  You cannot provide any proof of identity except that you have access to this seemingly inactive forum account.

I just replied to chmod775's email to my bitcoin-otc registered email address...
GPG identify here, or we'll reset your forum password and mark you as a scammer until you do.

GPG sign the following:



I verify that the following post was made by me:

Edit: I looked into it, and I see that isn't possible. However, he looks clean. I'll get back to you guys on the IP check.

Mark me as a spammer, I dare you! If you delete this account after 200+ I won't come back, isn't wierd the geo tag of my ip is the same, I have access to all my email account and I have access to my forum account. What a bunch of cry babies I am inactive for a while then shortly after I come back ask for a ~5 dollar loan and everyone is like "STANGER DANGER STRANGER DANGER!" Riddle me this what kind of scammer makes a series of mundane posts before trying to pull off a 5 dollar scam?
A thorough one. How many coins you looking for? I might be able to help.

A confidence man, mostly desperate and unoriginal, and more than likely a teenager unable to earn money on their own. Next question?

Edit: I looked into it, and I see that isn't possible. However, he looks clean. I'll get back to you guys on the IP check.

edit2: "desperate and unoriginal" no not desperate at all. I no longer want the loan, I'm not a drug addictict I'm not jonesing for a fix I don't need 1 btc, I would have liked the loan but I certainly don't need it. I am however frustrated I'll go down in history as a scammer despite overwhelming evidence I'm not simpley because I can't gpg authenticate. I guess gpg key > has access to forum account, has acess to gpg email account, has access to forum email account, has the exact same geo location....

It's alright, it takes a while to get used to the hive-mind attitude around here. The sooner you get used to it, the sooner they stop being able to pick up your scent. You'd think becoming more known would make you a bigger target, but this community's one and only enemy seems to be anonymity, something they claim to embrace.

It's a double edged sword.

Surely, if person has not logged in for a long time, then logs in from say an IP in a complete different country, cant we force them to confirm account or somthing? Cant remember if when I signed up if there was email conf., but surely, could just set flag to "requires email conf" to 1 or whatnot?

I don't think SMF is that smart without customization. But I think    Maged is right. Recently there have been a ton of gift card sellers that are either brand new users or old users who have since been dormant. But they all want to sell easily carded gift cards.
