Someone in #bitcoin-otc mentioned that they just had 10 bitcoins stolen by a scammer. Then gjs278 told me that he just got scammed too, and was trying to work together with the original guy to get his coins back. He also said that he discovered too late that it was scottlad, with the soulacehosting.com scam/troll, by doing whois. He asked me to pretend to buy them from scottlad (alias robthenob) as he was trying to dump the stolen goods quickly. His host was banned from #bitcoin-otc since several days ago, so he was trolling #bitcoin-dev of all places. I waited patiently until I asked someone who was talking about USD rates if he was selling, to lead him on. After a negative response there, scottlad took the bait and began a trade with me. The private logs with sensitive identities removed is on my website. I think it shows that robthenob has no rightful claim to the bitcoins so I will return them as soon as they get back online.http://users.silenceisdefeat.net/~evan/robthenob/
FOR GODS SAKE PEOPLE BE CAREFUL OF SCAMMERS, AND DONT TRADE WITH SCOTTLAD.
