@OP: Jered Kenna lives at 20mission and he is -easily- reached by phone. Most of the people in the bitcoin community who run businesses and who are in the SF area could go knock on his bedroom doorway and just say "Hey, this dude on the internet wants you to pay his friend.", but I bet it's better to send an email to email@example.com
Except no one seems to be reading that email or any of the other email accounts I've tried to contact. I've also tried his Twitter accounts, his personal phone that he posted in this forum a few months ago, and various other avenues.
From past accounts, he's been pretty honorable about returning people's money. However, there are still a few of us here that haven't gotten ours back, and it now seems he has shut himself off completely from any further TradeHill claims.
While I understand he's had to deal with fraudulent claims, it should be easy to verify the remaining true claims by asking for confirmation of amounts, transaction dates, etc. Anyone who is dealing in BTC ought to have kept track of that and be able to confirm their account to him that way. (I can-- I have my records all kept in Quicken.)
Great for you guys who live in San Francisco and can walk down to 20mission, but for the rest of us whose phone calls and emails he's not responding to, it's not so easy to reach him.
If anyone reads this and has personal contact with Jered, please ask him to take a look at our claims. There are still a few of us out here who didn't hear about TradeHill shutting down until just this past month or so. We're "coming out of the woodwork" (at least I am) because the Bitcoin market shows signs of life, and I'm now suddenly looking for the funds that I thought were safely stowed away. (Bad assumption).
I'm offering 20% of my claim to anyone who helps me reach Jered and get my account balances back.
