and then one guy replied to me via Skype messenger id : jrbumbaddy

and tell me that they very trusted guy on LBC with 100+ feedback's as below profile

Sorry for your loss! That's a simple, yet ingenious trick to switch the b for a d... Sad
I guess it's always prudent to stick to the actual marketplace and not do any business off a site.

I should have gotten into Bitcoin back in 1992...

Make sure to always get any deals via Skype confirmed via a message on the forum or trading site from the trusted account.

Message me if you have any problems

Sorry but why would you sent outside of LocalBitcoins.com? The whole point of LBC is so that scams are reduced through use of Escrow.

I don't get it. You posted the ad on LBC, it has a built in escrow system, so why did you decide to send directly to him? No skype or any other form of outside chat is required, LBC has a built in messaging system as well. Sorry you lost such a large amount, but what the hell are you thinking?

Why? Because the website is Dutch? You can sell from almost any country really.

I think its pretty important to be able to read the site! Since the site is in dutch imho it is very difficult for non dutch speakers to sell there. As to selling from almost any country that is not really true. It uses Iban and that is mostly used in europe and in a couple of other countries but what if the topic starter is in asia, america, australie etc?

I use bitonic a lot my self and they provide a great service but your statement that the TS should just use bitonic is kinda pointless when you don't know where he's from.

EDIT: By looking at the localbitcoins link in the op I assume the topic starter is in Canada or the US and the bitonic isn't a viable option.

It's not a statement, it's a recommendation. All business with them goes supersmooth. I haven't thought of the IBAN thing though.
