I would say that we've been screwed. I'd also like to point out that Powercoiner might be the same person as Dexter.

1) Dexter is the only person who successfully bought anything from Powercoiner.

2) In personal messages between myself and the two of them, they both sign off the same way.
"Best Regards
John"
and
"Best Regards
Sebastian"

3) Both from the same country

4i) Powercoiner joined Feb 14, 11:58AM (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=51871)
4ii) After getting out of newbie prison, he posted on Dexter's FS thread at 1:58pm asking to buy risers. How many could he need when he's liquidating his rig? (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=61010.msg748178#msg748178)
4iii) 2.5 hours later he posts this thread
4iv) Only 3.5 hours after that at 8pm Dexter has already sent Powercoiner 55BTC for two cards.

5) Despite asking for a tracking number for his second order (Second order already? The seller must be reputable.) and apparently not getting one, he hasn't posted in here asking what's going on. He hasn't replied to PMs or emails in the last few days asking if he's received it despite the his first order taking less than 2 days to reach his door and the fact it's been more that twice that long this time. I'd be posting here if I were him, and he's been on here every day since then. When I was asking if Powercoiner was a good seller I got replies in a couple hours, when I ask for a little information on the first "sale" I haven't heard back in 5 days.

6) Dexter coincidentally has 34 Sapphire 5850 Xtremes in an air conditioned rack (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=7216.msg711224#msg711224), much like Powercoiner.

All I can say is fuck!

I think we should start gathering all the information we have on him. If anyone has his name or anything.
Basically he sold us stuff he has but is not going to send.

At this point it's reasonable to asume dexter is the same person. Can we post names here or do we have to do it privately.

I paid to a real bank account in Hongkong but it's not his account. I will try to contact the bank and let them know the account was used on criminal purposes.

Dexter = Powercoiner. Their mining setup is identical. If we co-operate we might get enough info on this guy.

Sherlock no2. Those comments are not helping. It's always easy to say that kind of things afterwards.

I found out where dexter lives. I also send few PMs to people who bought something from him. There is a good chance we can get his real name and address.

before Powercoiner post this thread, he PM me with nice offer for all 36 Sapphire 5850 Extreme. But he only accept BTC and no paypal or any e-currencies which safe for both if have any troubles. I think with the huge amount for 36 5850s, me and you need pay via the safe way, so I decline his offer and still wait for other successful trading. Until now I have seen only Dexter and no one.

Dexter has exactly the same hardware what powercoiner is selling. He has also disappeared now so there is a good reason to believe there is a same person behind them. I know where dexter's mining hardware is (city in germany) so that might help us. Any other information is welcome.

In fact, I will offer a bounty for any helpful information. 1-3 btc, depends if useful.

I wouldn't do anything too crazy just yet, maybe give Dexter a full day to come on and try to provide a little proof that I'm wrong in this. A scan of the DHL waybill or just copying the DHL tracking number from the first order that Powercoiner sent him would be all that is needed. That shouldn't be too hard for him to produce.

I also paid through a wire transfer to his company's HK US funds account as well. Interestingly Dexter apparently runs or ran a business importing equipment to Europe from Asia.

Hi,

I feel very sorry for you guys!

I got scammend half a year ago and than discribed the situation to the forum administrator. He made some ip adresses public to put him under pressure. It worked, as some of them where no TOR adresses, and the scammer did send my BTCs back.

Powercoiner also posted a thread to sell GPUs in the german section, so if he really is german it should be possible to get his home adress. In Germany the ISPs have to record the ip adresses!!

So ask the administrator for ip adresses, check against proxies and ... good luck!!!
And next time ask to use bitmit.net or alternatives.

Dexter has contacted me and denied my allegation that he is Powercoiner. That is fair, so I'm going to say that as of now I am skeptical but I won't claim that they are the same person. Dexter, if you are a separate person from Powercoiner, I will apologize at that point. The similarities are striking though, so if you could do something to put our minds at ease we would really appreciate that so we can continue with finding out more information on Powercoiner and hopefully get our money returned.

Dexter provided me powercoiners address. I will look into it and see if it's legit. Dexter you could always try to do some research too because you are german and know better how everything works there.

Dexter should be able to provide bitcoin transaction IDs and a waybill for his first order.

Dexter IS Powercoiner.  He's feeding you bullshit.  I suspect he's also AniceInovation in this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=64666.0

Make 3 accounts.  Give yourself good reputation, then leverage that with the 3rd account by "borrowing" $700 worth of BTC.

Right now I have three different names and two different addresses.

Anice provided me Powercoiners name which doesn't give any hits in google or anywhere else.
I have Powercoiners address from Dexter. That doesn't help either.
I have Dexter's address, his firm's address and Dexter's real name. Those are only real information I have right now.

Dexter, prove to us that you are on our side. Scan a tracking code or something from the powercoiner's shipment. Give us the BTC transaction information. That shouldn't be problem.

Hard to believe that you can make a shipment with DHL without giving your real information. I would also like to know why Dexter has identical mining hardware with Powercoiner. Let's hope that we get some IP-address information from the mods soon. That will clear up a lot of things.

Here's what I was PM'd, its relevant to this conversation, but hasn't been mentioned by MXRider.

Hi,

Powercoiner PM'd me 25th and he was last online two days ago. Hard to say what he is really doing. Let's hope he answers this night. Did you buy anything from him?

He says pretty much the same things in german. He also mentioned there that he got over 90PM's one day. That might be a reason he doesn't answer.

Some people say that they got the cards so I hope we can get some of his information if he's a scammer. I really hope this gets cleared out, whether it's a scam or legit. I hate this feeling when I just have to sit and wait.

Mxrider, your lack of credentials calls you into question as well. Please provide your bitcoin transaction ID.

That's a joke right?

I paid with international bank transfer. I've exchanged several PM's with other people trying to sort this out. My money is on gone as well. What do you want from me?

I'm not convinced that AniceInovation is the same person as Powercoiner. It would be nice to hear from him, and he is in the EU, but looking through his 8 pages of posts there doesn't seem to be any outright red flags. It would be interesting to see his response to Tomato's post on whether he went through with the deal with Powercoiner. Does anyone have any other information on that possible link?

This. Also, the transaction ID for his second order of 20 cards.

For anyone else that payed with BTC, it might be helpful to have the transaction IDs from those purchases to follow up on. I'm fairly new at this, but I can try following them around in blockchain.info.

I've been working on an escrow solution to stop this kind of thing, but I'm still getting it up and running.

no escrow used? www.btcrow.com
