A sad and long story about being scammed. Ukash to bitcoin scam.

I have lost $100 in a trade with bitcoinseller. Please I'm warning everyone don't fall for the Ukash bitcoin scam. What happened is that I wanted bitcoin and bitcoinseller wanted Ukash. What I did next was bought a Ukash voucher to trade with bitcoinseller for bitcoins. So after I bought him the first Ukash voucher, he didn't pay me the bitcoin.  Instead he wanted me to buy a second Ukash voucher with the cash he sent me on paypal.  I was thinking no because I thought if I bought him a Ukash voucher with the money he gave me he could just reverse his papal transaction and thus get the second Ukash voucher for free. So I told him that the site wouldn't let me buy a second Ukash voucher which was a lie. He told me that if I don't refund his paypal back that he will reverse his paypal transcations to me and never pay me. So I issued him a refunded on paypal hoping he would send me the bitcoins.  He never did and since then theirs been no reply. After that he was gone like the wind.

Hindsight is 20/20 but if anyone else happens to read this thread, there are methods to lessen your risks of getting defrauded:

The #Bitcoin-otc Web of Trust (WoT) is quite useful in learning how trustworthy your counterparty is.

I do not know if you are talking about the same person, but "bitcoinseller" (the nickname) is also on btc-e.

As soon as I spoke on their chat, he sent me a PM stating that he is willing to sell me bitcoins for $5.2, when the price on the website was $6.4.

I said just "hi" on the chat, nothing about buying bitcoins, so obviously he was contacting anyone that talked there.

I told him, ok, but to send the bitcoins first, he said he does not agree, and I asked him to search for another victim.

When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Bitcoinseller originally contacted me on btc-e.  I just hope others read this post so they don't make the same mistake.
