Did Azn atleast get his cpu?

Not yet. The shipping number is still invalid afaik too.

sorry to hear that. With your deal you've atleast got everything buttoned up in escrow right?

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Correct.

I'm a bit confused why he would try something like this since I insisted on escrow if he were actually intent on scamming me. Originally he wanted to send first and then when I got the package, I would send bitcoins and processor without dealing with escrow.

But I insisted on an escrow as protection for both parties since the sums involved were rathar large.

He still has my benefits of the doubt (maybe HonorMe is his roommate or something?), but anymore strikes would make me feel quite uncomfortable.

I don't belive you guys were the intended targets. He was using the trades with you and MrTeal as credit towards some new loans on both accounts.

Yes, please pay your loan back before you raise money for your sister who has cancer.  Because that is more important.

Classy move, Znort.

Very classy.

I do feel bad for MrTeal.  

At one point he/they may have actually intended to send the cards to MrTeal as a way of building rep because I do believe that us lenders were the real intended target.  I got to chat with him through PM several times and something just did not feel right to me.

What really pushed me to the scammer side was not anything he/they said in here (these forums) although suspicious, it was this:  http://www.indiegogo.com/p/122324

Which he linked to from this message:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=88015.msg968353#msg968353

The whole "Cancer Sick Sister" page itself reeks of scam.  

My working theory is because that did not work, raised $0, and having spent all the time to write up that scam and not wanting to waste the effort he/they then came here to the Bitcoin forums.  The idea was to sell a few things, build some rep, then scam as many large loans as possible.

When the lenders became suspicious the fall back was to take what they could on the cards.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

I am generally quite a sympathetic person but tbh this is just beyond ridiculous. All the glaring warning signs were there for literally months. Anyone who couldn't see the cancer sister page was a scam is an idiot. Look at the poor spelling and cheesy bullshit. If this guy isn't Nigerian I will eat my own toes..

And yes I have been scammed out of a couple of btc here and there from various business deals, but for this large a transaction there is no excuse for stupidity like this after receiving so many warning from other posters..

PS: this isn't hindsight bias I saw these threads weeks ago and laughed at this guys pathetic attempt at scamming. little did I know he'd actually be successful. doh!

Given the non-response from PMs, the still invalid DHL tracking number, and recent developments here on this thread, I believe sylkyx actually was actually attempting to scam some loans and has no intention of actually sending me the processor and now want my bitcoins back so I can pay off the loan I put up for this trade.

I will PM hashking in a moment with my bitcoin address.

thank goodness for escrow. It may not prevent the hassles of a bad deal but atleast the bitcoins are preserved.

Please do not post his dox. He may be a POS thief who has no qualm stealing from people, but we should respect his privacy.

The only reason I can think of not to dox him is that MrTeal might want to sell everything he has (and that appears to be a lot) to a collection agent in the thief's home area.  Possibly by talking to his parents some of the money may be recoverable.

A very long shot I know.

Aye, I would concur since only one party ended up being harmed in this case we should leave the doxing decision up to that party.

didnt you guys find out where some of the other scammers live ?
just curious what has ever been done to them... besides bad mouth them on the forums ?

shameless plug..  I will buy bad debts / assist in collecting from scammers in Australia =)


So sylkyx = HonorMe = InterCoin?
Yes.

Unfortunately for him, we know where he lives, his
phone number and where he goes to school ... he's
likely going to have an interesting time in the coming
weeks.

A big fat NOTHING because you cannot do crap about stolen BTC.

BTC is the best tool for Nigerian scammers like me.

Too bad nobody in the community gets to practise the jailhouse mining techniques when they drop the soap Cheesy !

I am waiting for government enforced cryptocurrency, if that will ever exist Grin

Some idiot from Germany got doxed and was about to get arrested before he suddenly decided to return all the BTC and blame everything on his roommate. Can't remember the thread though.

Arrested for WHAT ?

Surely not for the stolen BTC ... nobody recognizes them anyway.

Can't remember, but apparently it was serious enough for him ti do a 180 and return the money.
