I'm interested in buying a small amount of btc in Boston, MA.  For cash.  Is this site a good option? I assume I meet the person and give cash. But how do I know they will then send btc an not just disappear?

Don't let them leave until you are sure you have the bitcoins.

I mean, if they pull a gun it would be best not to risk your life, but in general, you prevent them from leaving with the cash the same way you would if you were meeting up to sell anything else.  If they take the cash and don't immediately release the bitcoins to you, shout thief, call the cops, etc.  They've got your cash and clearly have provided you with nothing in return.  I haven't had any such issues yet after a few hundred exchanges, so I'm not typically very concerned about it.

If you are meeting in a populated public place, there aren't too many people who are going to go to all the trouble of setting up an exchange at a website just to take the cash and run.  It would be easier, faster, and more profitable for them just to go to that same public place on their own, wait for the cashier to open the cash register, reach across the counter and grab a handful of cash, and then run.

The quality of posts has dropped to such a low level that all users who are participating in a paid signature campaign are added to my ignore list.

I've received several emails from localbitcoins indicating that someone requested that my password be reset.  I did not make such a request until tonight when I found that I was unable to log in.  Has anyone heard of this?  I've been logging in with the same password (and two-factor authentication) for longer than I care to admit, so I know I'm not mistyping the password, and caps lock was not on.

Here's the weird part:  When I DID request the password change, I didn't get an email.  I still haven't gotten an email.  I created a new account with a different email address and got the verification email.  Then I used that new account to try the password-reset function, and I didn't did get an email for the new one.

I suspect my account might be flagged (I hope!) and that is why I am not getting the password reset email.

Any insights would be appreciated!

What mailprovider do you use? It happened in the past that accounts were hacked so that a copy were sent to another email address. With that someone could reset your pass and change email to his email. Or he somehow reads the email another way.

He hacked his way into my hosting account by forging a government document and providing it to the hosting provider.  He then moved the nameservers so that email to the domain of my email address would go to his email server, and thus intercepted all my email.  Good call.

I figured this out last night with a support person from the host's host provider (I have a hosting account through one of their resellers).

I emailed this to the email address he used on my hosting account.  If that email address is unmonitored, perhaps he will study me enough to find it here:

Quote
Are you NSA?  This is something I would expect of the most autistic of their brilliant people - someone with the right amount of brains to successfully pull it off, but with the narrowmindedness required to remain blind to the greater evil you're helping to grow.

Or you're just a common and quite clever scammer.  I'd rather work with you than against you.  Study me. Find out if there is a vindictive bone in me.  (Hint: there isn't.)  So I offer you my services in teaching you how to honestly earn the wealth you seek.  Or perhaps you prefer to be looking over your shoulder all the time.
Some study of history might help you see that you're on the wrong side of our common struggle for joy, whichever of the above is true.  If and when you wish to contribute to the progress of our species, and you've mastered your ego enough to apologize, let me know.  If you can't get over the ego thing, don't worry about it.  Just find good people and help them go in the right direction.

Not sure if it's just for the UK Locale but the Sell Bitcoins! advert list isn't working right. The top 8 adverts are not being sorted correctly they are currently in this order:
70
40
66
54
39
10
68
65
Then at this point corrects to sort how it should (High price's at the top)
95
90
90
89
80
79
etc...

so for some reason the top 8 adverts seem locked in place when some of them should be right at the bottom of the list. It's annoying for me as i am posting an advert for a higher amount than all the top 8 people but my advert is 24 places from the top. Also as of posting this you can buy bitcoins on the buy page for around £82, so all the offers above that are probably inactive/dead adverts or crazy people:P

The buy page is working normally though (cheapest adverts at the top).

Has anyone seen a response to this because the problem still occurs?

If I have been help then please show your thanks         BTC: 127PRogAVZiV3fEmpJERh9KemK3a3Ffh6G         LTC: LXghFL8mZffpTFkm2nRTesuDrV5DJQP3Js

Not a place you want to trade if you use bank transfers. Reading their forum, it looks like getting scammed is almost guaranteed. Especially if SEPA transfers are involved. I did not know that SEPA transfer system is unreliable and makes it so easy for scammers to cancel transactions and reverse payments - taking your coin and your fiat too.

While reading what I wrote, use the most friendliest and relaxing voice in your head.

SCAM ALERT:

localbitcoins user using an ID of "thebitcoingirl" is initiating electronic transactions (such as Western Union and MoneyGram) and then sending a link claiming that it is a link to an image of the receipt of payment.

The link actually downloads a Windows executable.

The scammer also clicks the "Payment Sent" button to lock the bitcoins in escrow so you can't sell them until a dispute investigation is completed (usually 1 to 2 days).

Hopefully the site administrators will see that the user is a scammer and will resolve the disputes quickly.  I've still got 2 hours on the clock before I'm even allowed to file a dispute.

What the heck is going on with Localbitcoins?

I requested a withdrawal which was going to be used to pay an invoice from bips.me. The withdrawal showed up as processed but there was a technical issue and the coins never arrived so I opened a support ticket, asking specifically NOT to send the coins any more to that address since the invoice had expired. This morning I see the ticket was updated and disregarding my petition the coins were sent to that address. I have tried to contact LBC again asking for an explanation and/or possible solution but the only thing they do is "update" the ticket without sending any reply.

I didn't expect this unprofessional behaviour from LBC; I really hope this issue will be solved and I can recover my coins or otherwise I will make an awful lot of noise.

The coins shouldnt be lost. Normally the shop that uses bips.me can get the coins or bips.me helps directly.
Though of course LBC should have read the ticket at least.
