Hi, I'm looking for some bitcoins, I'd like to eventually get 50-100 from mtgox but for the time being, i was wondering who would want to go out on a limb and sell me some? I don't want to get screwed with rates like on virwox for anything more than a couple of btc, but I'm willing to do what it takes to gain trust. I have a good eBay account, fb, whatever. You don't have to pm me, you can post here (I'd prefer to be public). Does anyone know how long I have to wait before people won't be afraid of me filing a chargeback? I know it's a while. I also just opened a skrill but I've had my PayPal for a long time.

PayPal can be charged back as far as 6 months in the future so I'm guessing pretty long.

Maybe try to mine a couple of Bitcoins/Bitcents instead? Otherwise try to find someone close to you and do the transaction in cash Smiley

I wish. I'm studying abroad right now, so I can't mine or link my bank account to an exchange

That's pretty cool, but I'd rather just wait till I get home btc that's pretty inconvenient right now. In the mean time, anyone want to sell just 1 bitcoin?

your name is "honest bob", so you're probably legit.  Cheesy
