Hey people . I wanted to sell 3 BTC to a guy on this forum in exchange of some money via Skrill . After I sent him the BTC , he just deleted me and no longer responds to my PMs . I would like to know if there is a way to go in the court and to judge him . I don't really care about the BTC , but to get this guy in jail . PLEASE Tell me what should I do .

Currently looking to invest into 7 BTC !

Make the Bitcoin, don't let the Bitcoin make you.

Show us some proof.

Show the BTC transaction, show the private messages that were exchanged between you two, etc, etc.

Also the username would help.

There is very little chance of you recovering those funds. Sorry to say, but you probably will just have to call it a loss. Best thing to do is learn from it and use a trusted escrow next time. Providing more information about the deal (username, pm's, any other relevant information) would be great so others can avoid this person.

Details would be helpful. At least a name so no one else falls victim.

Username + Bitcoin Address would be useful. And proof of transaction. Not a ton of information, and why wouldn't you use escrow?

OP seems just fake claim here

as you was open thread for buying BTC them self as below

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=640006.0

and they even posted they want buy BTC and not selling it and they clearly said they have paypal skrill wu etc

and now they fake claim got scammed for 3 BTC LOL

and they never wiling to show any proof like scammer forum and yahoo skype ids and receiver and sender wallet ids and sing messages wallet of sender btc wallet id which from they so called sent 3 BTC and all screen shorts and proofs

so this guy must be fake and them self scammer

becare ful guys do not trade with this joker and stay away from them

take care

First thing: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=260073.0

When the subject of buying BTC with Paypal comes up, I often remember this: 

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Why would you send anything without escrow? This is really basic stuff.

Even at a really high 10% you would still be better off using it. As the poster above said you can find trusted escrow here for free.

seems like that since the thread is 4 days old and OP hasn't responded to any replies, nor he has provide any details or may be he's just depressed after losing a huge amount of money.

"I would like to know if there is a way to go in the court and to judge him . I don't really care about the BTC , but to get this guy in jail " sounds a bit too emotional and staged
