I just hate to see an honest businessman being harassed. So I have an idea that should prove to everyone here that you are honest and get your business rolling. My bank, International Bitcoin Moneylender (see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=61756.0
) has set up a BTC escrow account for you!
All you have to do is deposit the BTC you wish to sell into this public escrow account so we can all see that the BTC exist and are ready to be sold.
Then, once someone has gone through your standard procedure to your satisfaction and has paid you using PayPal, you will inform me and I will release the proper amount of BTC to their account.
I have created a vanity account for you at 1DAREq
293HBfWCRkJLNgHqs92iMi1C5tR3 (see https://blockexplorer.com/address/1DAREq293HBfWCRkJLNgHqs92iMi1C5tR3
I have deposited pi (3.14159265) BTC into the account and I will withdraw e (2.71828183) BTC to my personal account at 1BurtW
EejbnKeBRsvcydJvsNztB1bXV5iQ in order to prove to everyone that I control the account. The difference (pi - e) is my gift to you for using my services.
I (actually StrongCoin) will charge you only 1% for each withdraw from the account.
Clean and simple.
Now, how many of you "haters" out there would immediately purchase from dareq if the BTC were all publicly visible and under the control of a trusted banker?
