Beware of scammer mjuke.
He sold the Adobe cloud creative invite with high price and fake warranty. After 2 month the plan not working, he don't want to refund or replace any adobe account anymore. Then blocked people. Please take an action to him. Lost 150$.

i register in a free bitcoin mining sites. i've earned so much. but they requires me to upgrade before withdraw, how can i know if that is legit?

If they want you to pay before getting your money, it is certainly not legit. If you really earn money while mining on their website, then they could use part of this money to upgrade your account and let you withdraw what remains. In your case, you pay then you may be allowed to withdraw a small amount, whatever smaller than what you've paid. Either you give them money, either you go away from these "mining" sites.

Just FYI, if you're a new user (3-4 months or less) and you choose to deal with another new user, there's a near-100% chance one of you is going to be scammed.

lawl, whoever does a deal with someone named berniemadoff should hope for the worst

No, people don't learn. Nefario and Pirate were both trusted members before they showed their scammy nature.

I started a trade with -berniemadoff- for PS3 games 1/2 before shipment and 1/2 on receipt for a total of 7 BTC.  After sending 3.5 never heard from him again.  Does not respond to IM's.

I just joined Bitcoin today and I am dismayed that scamming is even possible at all. Didn't the designer take this into consideration from the start?  I know this is a new and experimental version.  But the fact that this is even a problem at all as already (in less than an hour) dissuaded me from using it any further.  I was ready to plop down $100 and buy some bitcoins today.  This should be a simple and secure process.  Apparently it isn't.  Not only do I need to worry that I will be scammed, but worse I, an honest *buying* customer, am also suspect.  That is ridiculous, and shows the fatal, and I do mean FATAL flaw of this system.  If decentralized currencies are ever to take off, they'll have to create a secure payment system right from the start. 

So final question - is the designer or designers planning on implementing (into the core) a secure system, so none of this nonsense is a problem anymore?




It's not Bitcoins fault, it's Paypal and the credit card companies fault. They don't honor Bitcoin transactions.

Use escrow for such stuff.

my verifie again :
verifymessage 1JLM7SC1PM6rr5gRX9rvVvCLo9o7DUh9Hn HPZWEltpv1cnvP6YCk6ffE9FbF6XvxxZmyVCa2fZHSw6wALXZUZzuZ54WScmGTTnKgMJ96x5DjObguV+gOBVjxw= "Smart1985 mybitcointrade.com"

And you know it before you get a transaction ( before the block was found with them ) ... liar
And the deal was only one Month for 2,5 BTC

send Pay Back 22 BTC to : 1PpfNWARwRuU5t8ZkgsU9wpyXyRxRKNxQq

(( this transaction, first confirmed in block chain in block 174781 @ 2012-04-08 12:10:49 ))

... paid to 1Bu1424Lf7y3Jz9p4ZyCo2mRSQDwdaXrHa 25 BTC

Code:
<> bitcoind help verifymessage

verifymessage
Verify a signed message

ok, that's nice, you verified the ownership of "1JLM7SC1PM6rr5gRX9rvVvCLo9o7DUh9Hn" by signing the words "Smart1985 mybitcointrade.com"

I fail to see how proving ownership of "1JLM7SC1PM6rr5gRX9rvVvCLo9o7DUh9Hn" is AT ALL meaningful.

1) you asked that a "refund" be sent to 1PpfNWARwRuU5t8ZkgsU9wpyXyRxRKNxQq

2) while the block chain does in fact show that 25 BTC was sent to 1Bu1424Lf7y3Jz9p4ZyCo2mRSQDwdaXrHa but the 0.01 BTC spillover / leftover was sent to 19A5LmMv4dhN4XUgehFFiF1QffqU6LwbBS (which is neither the address you signed with, nor the one you requested a refund be paid to)

3) you didn't sign to prove ownership of any of the 5 source addresses which were used as inputs for the 25 BTC transaction

... am I missing something? Yes, you proved (by signing) that you have the private key to "1JLM7SC1PM6rr5gRX9rvVvCLo9o7DUh9Hn" but that address wasn't even used in the transaction in question.

The IP logs show that Gabriellz9 is the same as Riddleman. They both use 88.159.122.55.

Let this be a lesson to you to not trade with newbies without some due diligence!

Did you think you were going to get lucky? Gambling instinct?

Escrow is available - use it!

Hello to all i want to post an scammer !!


Today i have make a post that i have 400€ ukash to change and one guy named : Riddleman
said he could change.

I send him, for an test change 100€, and the 19 numbers ukash code that i bought today offline in an patrol station and he said he make the deal and the BTC is on the way but it takes a few minutes.

He said he  must look first how he can change the code to money ( i thought a guy who change should know that )

he write : Thanks! Going to Ukash now to check the code, give me a minute to find out how it works.

and then : I think it worked, thanks! I have sent you the BTC, it's just waiting for the next block so it gets confirmed. Can you send the other codes as soon as you read this message?

i write : no i first want to get my BTC until i send you codes again

After 10 minutes he said the code is not right and hes send the money if i send the right code !!

Then i called ukash and they told me that the code was used at the moment i give him the code !!!


SO MY MONEY IS AWAY AND I GET NOT BTC !!!

BEWARE OF Riddleman !!! ( Newbei with no rating on bitcoin-otc offers large ammounts of BTC !!!! )

HE IS AN SCAMMER !!
