I thought this was escrow 101 - always make sure any collateral is 100% "in hand" before confirming that it is safe to send Bitcoin (when it comes to loans).

This is one reason I would never considering offering escrow services. If one party scams you then you are held responsible.

He had the collateral in hand, he made a mistake in not changing the email.

No harm done, nobody else got scammed except that redsn0w has to suffer some headache.

Why did the person who took the loan even take back the account himself ?
It is obvious that without repayment, he will get a negative trust and would never get a loan again .

That was supposed to be the last of the progressively higher loans, and I doubt it was intended to be paid back. Any loan after that is a bonus.

that is not having it in hand. That is taking his word that he will not recover the account once he gets the loan

I've seen this email : sfdsfsfsfs@mail.com and I thought it was a random letters. Then I didn't change the email , but it is the first time *I've always changed it*.
that was probably the point of him setting it to that email.

It was not voluntary (because I thought it was a random letters so I didn't change the email). Now I'm trying to understand if he is the real "moreia" or not.

I'd advise Escrows to stay away from account trades or trades where they are holding a tarnish-able item because there's no way to determine who's done what and you'll be stuck making a tough decision and wasting a lot of time. I've stopped using Escrow for any code trades because of the bad experiences I've had in the past. Someone who's trading with you without Escrow usually won't go to the trouble of sending you the money and then saying the item doesn't work, making a scam report, and trying to get their money back. All the problems I've ever had with useable items have been through Escrow. Normally I don't think people will go through all the trouble, but I've seen a few cases on here where Escrow's being used and the item turns up used and nobody takes the blame.
