Was it a loan request? Is there a reference thread to read?

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=557683.0

I purchased this miner from PG and when it arrived it was badly damaged. PG apologized profusely and promised to make everything right and filed a claim with UPS and Sandwich Parcel (the store that packaged and shipped item ). After fighting with UPS and Sandwich parcel for the last 2 months I was able to get claim approved but with PG  as the original shipper it had to be paid to him who would then have to reimburse me. I spoke to PG the day the claim was approved (6/10/2014) and he confirmed that all was well and once he received the check I would get my money back. On 6/16/2014 PG picked the check up from Sandwich parcel and promptly disappeared.

I call daily and have left multiple voice mails for PG since 6/16/2014 without a single reply from him, before the check was released to him he always answered or called back same day. I have PM's to back the majority of this, Sandwich Parcel can back the rest of what I have stated.

That is the really sad part to me, he seemed to be a solid contributing (although a little over zealous at times) member of this community and plenty of people would have paid him more than this amount for him to dissappear and quit posting, maybe I should charge bfl, amt, etc for this service.

Someone else, somewhere on this forum, claimed that he was on holiday.

By the way, I noticed on his profile, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=24792

That is almost exactly three years (plus one day, two hours, 59 minutes and 41 seconds).  Coincidence?

Academic interest in bitcoin only. Not owner, not trader, very skeptical of its longterm success.

I had also issues with USPS (I ordered a leather wallet from him). It never showed up, although it was sent (the post office in Belgium made a mistake).
After a long discussion with the company, they couldn't reimburse me and eventually, PG just sent a new wallet to me, for free (I only paid shipping). It is a great guy.

Don't know what happened, but he is certainly NOT a scammer. I hope that nothing bad happened to him.

I believe you would feel differently you were in my position. We will see what the authorities have to say, but I am very confident at this point that this is not just some kind of misunderstanding.

I'm half and half on this, but why would you ask where he is if... I dunno. He has the most posts on this forum? I'm sort of confused. Plus, he lives in Sandwich, IL. I know. I've been there.  Roll Eyes

I perfectly understand that you want your money back (or at least able to speak to him) but he is a public figure. Everybody knows his name and address. he even was on let's talk bitcoin speaking on charity Bitcoin 100

I would be VERY surprised if he somehow tried to scam someone.

I think something else is going on. Maybe he had a car accident or something. I really hope nothing bad happened to him.

He has the most posts on this forum, but has not logged in since picking up the insurance check for my damaged miner, seems very coincidental hence the questioning of where he is. I am very aware of his address and have contacted authorities in Sandwich, IL.

I agree which is why I gave it so long before posting here or contacting authorities on the matter. I spoke to Bruno multiple times about more than Bitcoins and found it very hard to believe that he would scam me for 2800 dollars, but the timing of his disappearance with the release of the check for the insurance check are just too close to me to feel any other way at this point.

I would also be nervous if 2800 USD was at stake.

I also talked to him about other things. The deal was 6 months ago finalized. It was only 200 USd at stake, not 2800, but he seems a very friendly person.

I have now sent and email to the bitcoin 100 charity asking of they know what happened with him. But this is also not looking good:

Bruno Kucinskas has stepped down from an active role at Bitcoin 100 but can still be reached at BitcoinTalk under the user name Phinnaeus Gage.

Maybe he has an illness or a depression and isolated himself. But that would not explain that he doesn't finish what he started and he would give you the money in that case.

I hope we will know something asap.

edit: got a response from bitcoin 100:
