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.

FOR GODS SAKE PEOPLE BE CAREFUL OF SCAMMERS, AND DONT TRADE WITH SCOTTLAD.

AtlasLGo will hopefully make a podcast about avoiding fraud with bitcoin tomorrow. Please send him some BTC if he actually does this, these podcasts are great and we need more of them.

Last minute web design for that page by Vaerros on freenode, he will web design for BTC.

I harnessed him, threatened him, and even told him I'd get the FBI on him (lol), and he finally just gave up and gave me the money.  He has a horrible WoT rating, so no one should've been doing business with him anyways.

The more we discuss scam techniques the better everyone becomes, scammers included.

He tried a retarded gambit where he sent everything he had in order to intimidate me into sending him paypal, since he thought I thought he had more. Risky. Have to say this is one of the worst scammers I've ever encountered.

He tried to sell me a dedi. I asked for a shell before I bought, because he seemed rather shady... he gave me a shell on a 256mb VPS. 'free' FTW.

His mobile number appears to be on http://www.soulacehosting.net/support.html so yeah, he's clearly not very good at scamming people.
