So I guess this is what I get for trying to restore my faith in people, I get fucked over. I have just been scammed by a member on here for BTC0.1652.

To many people that may not seem like a lot. But for that money I have to work 10 hours, 10 hours for someone who gets a kick taking advantage of people.

I was just trying to do honest business and I thought I could work with this guy. I even sent him more than I initially told him. I told him I would send half first, he sends the whole $100 thorough WU, then I pay him the other half after.

Instead, after he sent me "confirmation" that he sent payment, I decided to be nice and send the other half. I go out of my way to pick up money which isnt even waiting for me. I dont know what to do anymore.

a cheap learning lesson for you. bitcoin payments are irreversible, so you always have to look out for yourself. don't trust strangers, because there is no good reason to.

$100 for 10 hours? Give me what you're smoking. Seriously though, In my country people work for $3000 a YEAR and some for $15 a day, you get much more than this. Still, sorry you got scammed.

trading via private messages with someone you cant grab hold of to slap their face or even know enough real life credible details to send a court order too...im just speachless!

remember bitcoin does not need trust as bitcoin is secured by maths. but users.. USERS need to gain trust of each other and USERS need to do some proper due diligence before sending money.

remember this next time.
if someone walked by you on the street and said "if you give me $100, ill walk to this shop and get you $120 worth of xyz.". would you do it?

think about that long and hard. then think, if he wasnt stood infront of you, knowing he could walk away.. but was sending you an email, where you never even see his face or know where he is from, would you do it then?

unless you know someone well dont do person-to-person trades unless it is using escrow. even localbitcoin can escrow the bitcoins and allow you to check a western union payment is received for you to then authorize the payment to forward on to the recipient.

why oh why do people still do private trades with strangers without escrow.. the mind boggles

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

Don't beat yourself up. I have been scammed for much more. Chalk it up to lesson learned. Sorry for your loss though I know how bad it sucks.

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do.  You can try reporting the theft to you local law enforcement, but they probably aren't going to be much help.

What was the address that you sent the bitcoins to?

In the future, when engaging in a transaction with someone that you aren't sure if you can trust, use escrow.  There are several escrow providers that have established a trustworthy reputation in this thread here:

Same here, around $15-20 a day which is insane. These days you can't trust anyone on btctalk.

That is a shame. In a way you should consider yourself lucky. That is a pretty low price for the lesson compared to what others have lost in that type of scam. Never send first and never accept payment in a way that can be reversed.

Seriously i was scammed a BTC (at the time 100$) and trusted the guy because he gave me his phone number, I learned my lesson but it was worth it. Anything over 10$ use an Escrow, and if it is under whoever has the lower turst amount send first.

The thing is, I have been scammed plenty of times before. This isnt the first time, just the first time in a while.

Looks like the scammer is probably going to gamble away your money at LuckyBit.

Or could he just be using it as a way to launder it.
