Then either the ad was on an advertising network, or stick to the page you were visiting.
Assuming it was posted on some advertising network (and the publisher of the page you were visiting is not affiliated with the ad in any way). I'd say it is more likely to be on some of the few active advertising networks accepting Bitcoin.
I searched...
Anonymous Ads: There is no SatoshiDice ad there other than one that points to their official .com domain. So no scam here.
BitcoinAdvertisers/BitcoinAdvertising: There's an image ad for SatoshiDice and, after clicking it on a website, I see that it also redirects to satoshidice.com
Operation Fabulous: It's hard for me to check which ads are being shown, and the advertiser chooses in which websites to advertise making it even harder.
CoinURL: I couldn't find a SatoshiDice ad there...
Dailybitcoins (they have their own advertisements system): It's hard to search for ads but from what I could see, there's nothing SatoshiDice-related there.
CoinAd: No SatoshiDice ad that I could see.
(if anyone knows of more places where people can advertise that the OP may have visited, please post)
BitVisitor: no SatoshiDice ad as of now.

Either I was (un)lucky enough not to see the scam ad on any of these websites, or it may have been removed already, or it is on any other advertising network, or it may be in no network and be just posted to some page. There are many possibilities but if nobody searches we'll never be able to find exactly which ad/website it was that the OP clicked.

Firefox portable doesn't log history? I believe it does, except in incognito mode (or whatever it is called in FF).

I was duped by this as well, and I believe it was when using BitVisitor to see some page that had 4 ad links on it for various Bitcoin related things.  Same as the OP, I just said "eh I'll just click the link rather than going to the site manually" and was suspicious when my 0.3 bet had no return change at all.  I found a Reddit post a day or two ago that warned about this scam (possibly sourced from this thread) and realized I'd been had.

I went through the Bitvisitor cycle again today and found the exact page I believe I got the first time, but this time none of the four links were to this scam site, but it could still be in the random rotation.

Note that I was pretty heavily inebriated at the time, so I may be misremembering some of the details.  Pretty sure I'm right here though, as my transaction list shows 2-3 incoming transactions from BitVisitor on either side of the outgoing SatoshiDice transaction, and BitVisitor is pretty good about paying out almost immediately rather than queueing a bunch of transactions at once like most other similar sites.

EDIT:  if you're interested, this is the transaction that I was duped at, thank goodness I only gave away 0.3 BTC to the guy.  http://blockexplorer.com/tx/324c16db46b1a6bd5f785711c209b75c3559b73df1e4d4c94b6b3c2922800aee

You can use WOT plugin for firefox to give it bad rating. If enough people do that, it will raise a warning at least for other WOT users.

+1000 ; adding a complaint now. suggest more do the same while we wait for Mr. Vorhess DMCA complaint to go through.

and HAHA. was he leeching the logo?

I lose 90% of the time on satoshidice.com and I only bet on the 75%+ addresses.  Maybe I should try satoshidice.net.

They should add an "I bet I'm going to lose" feature:  Include a payment to yourself of 0.00666666 BTC and then all the bets in that transaction become "over x" instead of "under x".  For those like OgNasty who can't help rolling high numbers.

Anybody curious as to what other site was created on that day using the same server? http://who.godaddy.com/WhoIs.aspx?domain=bitpantry.com&isc=ALEXADOM (the affiliate name is not relative, for I used Google instead of being on Godaddy to find the Whois)

The Tully address does not exist and the women running it supposedly grew up in Oklahoma but writes flavor as flavour. I have linked added findings to some guy named Ryan in Melbourne, but will hold back on that now in fear of being label a nut, then having my ignore label color turn a deeper 4th of July fire-cracker orange, created to sockpuppets with a 100+ post count.

The hope the relative information I provided above, Evoorhees, aids in your investigation.

Later, all.

except the first one registered directly through tucows and this one used the third part site creation and reg tool Homestead. The only similarity here is the date and that godaddy and homestead both used tucows to reg through...

bitpantry.com was probably doing the same thing to btcpantry.com as satoshidice.net was doing to satoshidice.com, so I think it could easily be the same person/people. In any case, both of the sites are down now.

Hi, I'd just like to point out that the reason bitpantry.com has been down and the registrar information seems strange can be found here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=100544.0

Additionally, the woman (singular, not plural) running it did in fact grow up in Oklahoma, but has an affection for spelling words like 'flavor' and 'color' as 'flavour' and 'colour' just because it appeals to her (that would be me).  The Ryan mentioned above is not in, and never has been in Melbourne, he is my husband, runs www.quickbitcoins.net, and we're both in the U.S.  Hope that clears up some of the confusion here.

Issued in Public Interest


I am declaring myself a new owner of this domain name from this moment (15 August 2016) till any transfer of this domain name.

I am really sorry for your loss. Being a domainer, I personally think someone misused this domain and you got in his trap. Let me clear, I have no relation with anyone involved in this as I bought this domain directly from registrar.

I am hereby discarding any past liability associated with this domain.  I don’t like spam, so I won’t use any such cheap practice as far as domain is in my possession.

If you don't like spam and won't use cheap practices....

Why the hell are you sitting on someone elses business name in a different domain extension?

There is zero legitimate interest in you having this.

Since concerned domain in thread is now part of my portfolio, I considered it necessary and I gave my declaration. I don’t think, I am liable to answer any other questions related with my business.
