What happened::
On September 28, 2014, a scammer created new accounts to impersonate me:
DannyHamiltton, (using an extra lower case 't' in the surname)
DannyHamlton, (using a surname with the lower case 'i' missing)

The scammer used these similar looking userIDs to send PMs offering escrow service to people.  The scammer sends a fake escrow address to the target hoping that the potential victim won't contact me to verify the information.

Amount Scammed:
Unknown at this time.  Hopefully this scammer has been identified before they managed to fool anyone.

Sample fake escrow offer sent by this scammer:

Good day,

Fastest ever Escrow response as you just caught me online Smiley

I have received a request from up.debug to facilitate a trade by providing my Escrow services.

I have seen this exact scam happen to myself and one other member.
This is becoming a huge scam on bitcointalk sadly...

Hopefully most people wont fall for this as it's easy to see they have other glaring information missing such as post count activity and avatars etc, but I know even with all that some people still get scammed. People need to be more alert on here. Double and triple check information before you send money to people.
