What happened:: User opened a thread wanting people to contact him for a BTC deal. Uses only Skype. I contacted the user, went through the motions. He wanted me to send coins first, I told him to send the payment first, and this time (Unlike my last attempt at exposing a scammer) I requested that he use a third party escrow. He claimed to not know what that was, I explained. He claimed that a third party trusted escrow was untrustworthy. I explained that's how everyone does business around here. He then stated he would do business with only newbies to "avoid getting scammed". I took this to mean that newbies don't know any better and would send him coins ahead of time.
