I spent a pretty lengthy amount of time on skype trying to get this guy to just show some type of valid proof, so I could feel better about the transaction.
Unfortunately, he sent me a series of very dark pictures of his "ID" that were completely covered in paper and only showed a first name "Afor" and not "Percy"
His excuse was "It's only 4PM here, I don't turn on the lights until the evening"
He then sent me a screenshot from a past order (using a giftcard, so the billing info doesn't matter) that showed the same first name "Afor".
Due to Percy/Afor's inability to just fucking show proof he owns the account, I would STRONGLY advise against sending him any form of payment until you have received your goods. I thought I had a decent enough reputation here for him to send first, but apparently not.
I strongly advise you stay away from this guy. It seems like he's hiding something (not just his identity).
I have the skype logs to back all this up, if requested.
Very nice, you haven't heard of an "american name". Afor is my legal name but I go by Percy because my parents believed that living in america it was proper to have an "american name". You're an idiot, the picture I sent you is a picture of a purchase made in Febuary with billing info that matches my ID name. Yes, I covered my ID in paper because you said all you wanted was the name. So who is the scammer? This user is mad because I did not go first to him and get scammed, so now he wants to come here and try to ruin business. Get the hell off the thread.
"His excuse was "It's only 4PM here, I don't turn on the lights until the evening"" He asked why it was dark that was my excuse.
Oh and I don't turn my lights on during the day, it's a waste of energy. Bite me.
[5/31/2012 7:44:55 PM] P: Hell
[5/31/2012 7:44:58 PM] P: Hello
[5/31/2012 7:46:40 PM] P: Unless you have the BTC ready to go now, I may not be able to help you. As someone has offered to pay half already for me to reserve it
[5/31/2012 7:47:00 PM] lolwut: ok, thats fine, thanks anyway
[5/31/2012 7:48:28 PM] P: You're withdrawing your bid?
[5/31/2012 7:52:06 PM] lolwut: dont have all the coins right now, so if thats a deal breaker, then give it to the other guy
[5/31/2012 7:52:26 PM] P: Yea sorry it's first come first serve.
[5/31/2012 7:52:34 PM] P: I'll let you know if he falls through.
[5/31/2012 7:52:41 PM] lolwut: ok
[2:35:16 AM] P: Other offer fell through so as of now it's yours.
[11:05:09 AM] lolwut: ok
[11:05:14 AM] lolwut: so how will this work
[11:05:28 AM] lolwut: you buy first? i make sure there are not legal problems, then i pay you?
[2:10:23 PM] P: Legal problems?
[2:10:32 PM] P: I already provided proof the account was mine
[3:34:02 PM] lolwut: Ok, where did you do that?
[3:34:09 PM] lolwut: i must have missed it
[3:34:15 PM] lolwut: can you link me to the post
[3:34:15 PM] P: Check my thread I'll link to the page

[3:35:35 PM] P: No AGC is accepted as exchangeable currency on a wide arrange of forums, you can sell RSGP,PP,AP,WU,MB,WMZ in exchange for Amazon Giftcards. I'm not really upset about afterall in exchanges there is always a loss/fee to exchange. You will see with the transactions posted below that I've bought everything I wanted from amazon, it was a miscalculation in spending. I thought there would be some purpose to the funds but once I had them I couldn't find anything I really needed from the site. While amazon seems like a huge market there are some things just not available there that I need, so I am selling the balance which is now no longer very useful. $4,000+ On amazon within this year alone:http://i.imgur.com/oESVJ.png?1http://i.imgur.com/nx5BT.png?1http://i.imgur.com/Vemf8.png?1http://i.imgur.com/ti78D.png?1
It seems that the issue you guys are having is the low price? I would be happy to raise it if that satisfies you, look through my posts I am eager to get BTC because I have some investment plans I am looking into. ALSO THE ACCOUNT IS NOT STOLEN, I do not know where you got that idea from. How many random people have over $4,000 in amazon GC's laying around on their account? Let's not be preposterous please, I understand caution but let's execute some rationality with it. Last purchase I made was in April (Kindle App), if the account was stolen don't you think they would have gotten it back by now especially with $1,000 sitting on it.
[3:36:05 PM] P: Chaang: explaining why you had so much of this and why you no longer wanted it. you have now done that in this thread. without doing that, i highly doubt anyone would have traded with you.
there have been a large number of scams with people with new accounts.
when you did not respond to the PM and then made a new thread red flags went up. do not take it personally.
[3:36:10 PM] P: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=84439.20
[3:36:42 PM] lolwut: i see that, but that still does not prove you own the account. I'm not trying to be an asshole here, just dont need any trouble from this transaction.
[3:37:10 PM] P: Then I honestly can't help you. If you think the account is stolen you shouldn't be doing this trade in the first place
[3:37:19 PM] P: The account is mine the balance is rightfully owned
[3:37:48 PM] lolwut: I've been doing business on the forum for a while, I have a perfect reputation.
[3:37:55 PM] lolwut: I would like to do the deal because its a great price
[3:38:06 PM] lolwut: Can't blame me for wanting to be safe.
[3:38:27 PM] lolwut: I can send payment once the items are received, I think that is fair.
[3:38:43 PM] P: You're not trusted enough to do that.
[3:39:29 PM] lolwut: Ok. I appreciate you reaching out to me. I wish you the best of luck
[3:40:01 PM] lolwut: the only other way i'd consider it is if you can show proof of ownership like an ID or a utility bill with your name on it
[3:40:06 PM] lolwut: nothing from the internet
[3:40:12 PM] P: Ok, if you are not purchasing I am going to go ahead and remove you from my skype/ Just to provide more room for others.
[3:41:10 PM] lolwut: can you produce some form of ID?
[3:41:20 PM] P: As in?
[3:41:29 PM] lolwut: [6/1/12 3:39:31 PM] Brute: Ok. I appreciate you reaching out to me. I wish you the best of luck
[6/1/12 3:40:02 PM] Brute: the only other way i'd consider it is if you can show proof of ownership like an ID or a utility bill with your name on it
[6/1/12 3:40:08 PM] Brute: nothing from the internet
[3:41:59 PM] P: I'm not interested in giving my address over the internet or my ID card. I know these things can be used for ill purposes and would rather not expose them to untrusted sources[3:42:00 PM] lolwut: you can remove all private information, im just concerned about the name
[3:42:21 PM] lolwut: out a sticky note over everyone on your drivers license but the name
[3:42:25 PM] lolwut: put*
[3:42:32 PM] lolwut: everything*
[3:42:35 PM] lolwut: cant type today
[3:43:23 PM] P: Give me a minute, that's not a problem
[3:54:23 PM] P: it's not coming out well
[4:01:28 PM] P: The picture takes and it's obviously my id but the writing is small and the webcam quality is assinine
[4:17:10 PM] lolwut: camera phone?
[4:17:13 PM] lolwut: something?
[4:18:10 PM] P: the camera on my phone is even worse the problem is the id writing is too small and the film screen over it makes the picture sheen which makes the name blurry

[4:27:12 PM] lolwut: or ALOR
[4:27:13 PM] lolwut: or something
[4:27:53 PM] P: It's Afor, it's my legal name. Percy is my nickname or "american name"
[4:28:28 PM] lolwut: well that doesnt help your case any. Doesnt amazon require a legal name?
[4:28:41 PM] lolwut: im just looking for something to match up here
[4:28:46 PM] P: No
[4:28:53 PM] P: The name on the amazon is changeable
[4:29:02 PM] P: I can make it shitbricks if I wanted
[4:29:23 PM] P: The name on the card and billing address needs to match up with the name on your billing statement
[4:29:34 PM] P: But other than that Percy is my account name
[4:29:41 PM] P: Like you can name a kindle etc.
