I've removed my negative rep for him as I believe he's not so much a scammer as he is a shirt tempered seller who lacks experience. This should not be taken as an endorsement, and buyers are still urged to use escrow.
Wrong.

I tried to enhance the backside of the paper, but it seems there never was real text...

Well I'm glad I was able to alert those in the gambling section. I commented letting people know to read the OP and check his other posts to and see he deleted them all.

I dont think he is good with photoshop or anything. Just examine the photo of 60 miners "on his table".

Only by comparing the USB plug width one can see there is some 20-30 % difference.

There are a lot of small details he forgot to pay attention to, I dont want to share them with public, because
there is a criminal and forensic investigation by authorities ongoing . Also, I dont want him (or any scammer)
to become better in his criminal activity.

Beware everybody, he is probably using different usernames here on bitcointalk and will continue
to scam.

Sorry for necroing this thread, but the shop is just curious enough to talk about.  It's not an obvious fake, but it ain't easy on the eyes, everything about it just screams "overlay!1!"

The first impression is wtf?  The miners are ideally laid out for shopping:  ~parallel to each other, so no fancy shading would be needed if shadows were cast, which they're not.  Shot from nearly perfect 12 o'clock -- no worries about 3D stuff like perspective & parallax.  
Shit cellphone cam (duh), though the EXIF data's stripped.
Why the the note?  The paper is ~flat, so any handwriting can be overlaid without worrying about shading & distortion introduced by "crumples."  The miners don't overlap the paper, so it may as well be posted in a separate shot Smiley  
The thumb drive seems to cast a shadow toward 10 o'clock, but could be anything -- motion blur, lens distortion, phone cam software trying to compensate -- but if it's a shadow, why none from the miners?
@route:  What looks like USB plug size discrepancy could be simply perspective -- if the lens is ~above the thumb drive & ~4 feet up, the scaling would make sense.
There's another detail -- in the bottom row of miners, the miner in the right-hand corner (the one with one of the screw holes barely visible) seems to be identical to the second miner from the left, same row.  The shading/reflection on the the USB plugs is close enough to say "same."  I made a 2-frame overlay gif (cropped from your pic -- aligned on the usb connector).


So, not 100%, not proof, but sure backs up my first impression. Smiley

@crumbs

Yeah, a lot can be said about photo. Like I said I dont want to share in public too much.

The size of the plug:  there is also a size of the USB miner, it doesnt scale right relative to the size
of the A4 size of the paper. This can check anybody with a miner in hand. The dimension of one miner is aprox. 25 x 57 mm.

So I submitted .1 btc for the "Eruptor Raffle" to the address 12NWcBQyjW3UXVc4jKY5Rt85fAeQSifQqq

The odd thing is that if it was a scam, he would have surely cleared out the address after pruning all his posts, right?
Or is .4 BTC not enough to be worth the cost of laundering it?

PM to rent.

Why would he do it now ?
He has all the time he wants, now. And if he waits 2 years, maybe this will has been forgotten by the internet and he gets away with it. Or so he beleives.

[OVER] RIDDLES 2nd edition --- this was claimed. Look out for 3rd edition!
I won't ever ask for a loan nor offer any escrow service. If I do, please consider my account as hacked.

Unfortunately also had some bad experience with EuropeanMiner.

Bought some USB Miners off him. Bitcoins transferrered to his payment address 198VFGQSGFfE6Dnb1WoUFhzAHqNUu4JTgi - my 28BTC are still there.
Unfortunately all done and completed before other people starting raising doubts here, would have thought twice...
Never got a proof of posting or tracking number. Highly doubt that the miners will ever arrive here.
Also no refund of the payment. No reaction any more to any of my messages.

Will file an official police report - since the SEC is finally moving on pirate, I have some faith left in the legal system.

EuropeanMiner - make this right, refund my money!!
