Frankie the language here is once again scam-central, letting the marks down easy, and stalling:

from 8/17:

[2012-08-17 16:15:10] <boonies4u> pirateat40: will you be daytrading with your own funds after this?
[2012-08-17 16:16:15] <pirateat40> boonies4u, Yes I hold personally over 30k BTC
[2012-08-17 16:16:45] <Azelphur> pirateat40: is that your personal or the total funds of BS&T?
[2012-08-17 16:17:57] <pirateat40> Azelphur, personally.  BST is over 500k BTC

IMO this is just random lies, look like a baller, boss, and no one asks him why not send back the 30k worth of BTC right now in his personal stash and wait for the "clients" and "unwinding" to send the rest?

[2012-08-17 16:18:55] <ErebusBat> pirateat40 does that mean we won't get the tell all we al lwant for some time ?
[2012-08-17 16:19:50] <pirateat40> ErebusBat, I've signed a contact to do a tell all with a company.  I'm sure you'll see it it soon enough.

lolz.  A tell all?  with a company no less? wow I'm impressed.  I heard they signed Don Deluise in 2009 to play Pirate but since his untimely death they are looking for a replacement and it will be an A&E special.  It's already in signed contract status with a company, so It's all good. Totally legit / start a bet thread on that too.

[2012-08-17 16:46:38] <pirateat40> Although delayed, no one needs to worry about getting coins back.
[2012-08-17 16:47:09] <pirateat40> what you should be talking about is what charity we donate to.
[2012-08-17 16:52:05] <pirateat40> It will be the community's choice, I'll just cast my opinion.

yes, no needs to worry about the guy holding $1M+ USD worth of bitcoin giving them back



and from today 8/20 holding all the bitcoins and having promised to start the payout process today he had few words:

(a few other posts of little substance / full text here:  http://www.bitbin.it/MKzYy6Bi  )


[2012-08-20 18:07:26] <pirateat40> Today is the start of a busy week guys, i'd love to answer all the 200 pm's but can't.  I'm around and you'll know when things start to move.

So far, spot on:

One thing I am looking forward to see is how, once ponzi collapses, some/many of it's victims will defend pirate and his lieutenants and blame everyone else but them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_syndrome . I have a hypothesis, this it what will happen, now gotta wait and see if practice will validate the theory.

perhaps it will be a slow, extended flameout?  

week 1: "it wasn't a ponzi that collapsed.  the funds are all still there, just that bs&t doesn't have access to them until [some future event] occurs."

week 2: "we aren't getting interest anymore but none of our funds were lost.  just waiting for the green light to withdraw!  Grin"

week 3: "i sure hope pirate is ok.  he hasn't updated anything.  his 5k went to charity already so that was unexpected."

week 4: "with all these angry people, i'ld remain incommunicado as well.  wouldn't you?"

week 5: "there's still no evidence it was a ponzi you guys!  fud fud fud that's all you do."

week 5: "it couldn't have been a ponzi.  he was making 10% profit every week, people were getting their payments, every week!"

week 6:  "how the hell did he get hacked? fml!  well, at least that proves it wasn't a ponzi!"

week 7: "why did i keep rolling over the payouts?  i would only be down 65% instead of it being a total loss.  dumb dumb dumb!"

week 8: "someone should have kept his wine glass in vegas, they can get dna from that you know."

What is this about charity? If pirate was promising to give charity, then that's on the top of the list of a scam-artist's most reliable tools.

I lliked this one (excerpt from IRC chat):

[2012-08-17 16:42:34] <exahash> @pirateat40 - you need a small number of bigger depositors
[2012-08-17 16:42:57] <pirateat40> exahash, nah, I'm done.  I need some family time.
[2012-08-17 16:43:22] <pirateat40> When I finally announced the closure you don't know how good it felt.

[21:04]   <pirateat40>   Trading vs Shutting Down is a much harder than just clicking a button. There is A LOT of money moving around and I want this done as orderly as possible. The process began last night and has been happening all day but its not something that happens over night. The repayment will begin with the earliest investors first, but its tricky cause some of them now run PPT accounts which isn't fair to some. When coins being to move I'll let everyone know. BTW, No you can not buy your way to the front, so stop asking.
[21:17]   <pirateat40>   I'm handling the process as fast as possible. At no point did I say it would be fast and easy, I said it would be done. Thanks for your patience, I'm always watching. Stay tuned.
[21:19]   <pirateat40>   Trading coins from hands to hands is not the same as trading out the coins to be returned.
[21:20]   <ErebusBat>   I am assuming you ca not elaborate, yet, pirateat40. But thanks for the update
[21:21]   <pirateat40>   ErebusBat, the more I talk the more questions, emails and pm's I get.
[21:23]   <pirateat40>   I can't be everyone's best friend and I'm sorry if I step on toes, but I'm wanting things to go as fast as you guys do.
[21:25]   <pirateat40>   Now, back to your regularly scheduled trolling.


seems to be from today / got this from Maged's thread in important announcements https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=101339.0 


This should be considered the second stall.  Remember, Pirateat40's game now is the infinite stall - from this point forward there will only be vague excuses and very close to zero block-chain verified large payments.  There is a small chance of 1 or 2 payouts to a smaller pass throughs to give the appearance of the beginning of payments, but very unlikely.

Do you have any theories on why he would do this at all? It seems to me that it would make much more sense for him to just disappear with everyone's money. What does stalling buy him?

I can think of only one thing, and it's very disturbing. Perhaps Pirate himself holds a large number of PPTs. Consider:

1) Someone deposits 1,000 BTC with Pirate.

2) Pirate uses those 1,000 BTC to buy PPTs. He gets those 1,000 Bitcoins back anyway.

3) Now, after he announces no more payouts, he sells those PPTs. They're trading at 70% of face anyway. So he gets 700 BTC.

He can only do this if he suspends withdrawals because otherwise, selling PPTs will reduce his income stream (it runs this in reverse, but that can't happen with payouts suspended). But he can buy PPTs for free, and so long as he isn't making any payouts, he can sell them and keep the proceeds.

You can work out the consequences for yourselves.

Selling  1000 ppts or even a few thousand would be small change for pirate- dont' think it would be worth the effort.
Only other 2 reasons for stalling is :

1) He's on the road and once to distance himself as much as possible.
2) He's a Sadist son-of-a-bitch.

I don't believe either one is true.

That's why I suggested he held and is selling "a large number" of PPTs. The 1,000 BTC worth of PPTs was an example of a single transaction he might make. This is something he can only do if he has a reasonably large window where he doesn't have to make any payouts but won't create a panic by not making payouts. This is precisely what he has created.

There isnt a large number of insured PPTs or even low cost PPts to be had.

Sticking my neck out in here to ask something really noobish "what the hell is a ponzi?" LOL
I been lurking around posts hopeing I could just read it somewhere without exposing myself as thick!
But you all seem to know what everyting is LOL.

I understand what is going on with BS&T ATM and only a few of the "banks" listed here actually claim to be a pirate pass through.
there is someting i'm obviously missing, and would seek wisdom here if I may please.

From: [CLOSED] Imsaguy's PPT @ 7%

Interest payments were made electronically (redeposited) but not actually sent out.

 Shocked Roll Eyes

Was this standard operating procedure for the pass throughs?

This is another signature ponzi move. Have some context:

Quote
The regular payment of so-called dividends induces investors to bring friends, family members, or business colleagues into the scheme and to put up additional funds themselves now that they are convinced of its veracity.

The operators will also persuade you, with little effort, to "roll over" your "profits" into another investment cycle, so your actual return ends up being back on paper only.

They may decide to provide you with just "statements" showing you your profits rather than sending out cheques,
but the receipt of a cheque in the mail seems to generate more enthusiasm for participants, and it ultimately makes it back to the con at any rate.

This kind of setup relies on keeping his victims from knowing they are being cheated for as long as possible so others can be lured in.

If the total value of all outstanding tradeable PPTs isn't that high, or the trade volume in them is fairly low, then that would prove that this isn't happening. In that case, I'm baffled by this.

Time.

If he was over-optimistic when he lowered his interest rates, he may not have expected to have to shut down now and may not have been fully prepared.

He may need lots of time to sort everything out. He may have to cover his tracks, wind down positions, sell a few last bitcoins, do a number of international wire transfers, perhaps even open new bank accounts, which takes some time.

If he intended to flee physically, he may have to sell his accommodation, furniture, etc., buy airline or other tickets, but we don't know whether he will do that.

Anyway, these things take time, and he is certainly worried about being caught.

If he intended to flee physically, he may have to sell his accommodation, furniture, etc., buy airline or other tickets, but we don't know whether he will do that.

Anyway, these things take time, and he is certainly worried about being caught.
I guess a working theory is this: Withdrawals were starting to get very close to, or even exceed, deposits. To preserve his profits and try to keep going a bit longer, he reduced the interest rate, figuring this would reduce the withdrawals without significantly reducing deposits. Instead, this backfired, either increasing withdrawals, reducing deposits, or both. This forced him to shut down his operation earlier than he had planned to, so he needs time to wind down all his positions so that he can run with them.

Assuming there's no volume of PPTs to double-dip with, I don't have any other theory.

Thread title:
Hey Pirate, it's Monday....WHERE ARE MY BITCOINS ?

Funny, the whole circus is already starting. I thought his stalling tactics would keep him out of it for about a week.

From now on it will mostly go as expected. There will be a lot of noise, but I also think that after a couple of weeks, maybe a month or two, the thing will be mostly forgotten, and bitcointalk.org will look as usual. Those who lost their money will disappear.

Most painfully, those who have their money in other Ponzi schemes will insist that theirs is legitimate and will defend it just as fervently as the pirate followers defended pirate until today.
