To anyone with an interest in buying or selling btc / etc, these are the scams to be aware / afraid of:
- anyone with offers requiring that you send first (fiat or crypto)
- anyone suggesting that IOLTA is applicable to a crypto deal
- anyone suggesting that registered, legitimate third party escrows are unsafe
- anyone suggesting that a screenshot as PoF or PoH is proof in any way (it is not: evren if the screenshots are real they are subject to change in seconds)
This board is full of illegitimate sellers - and buyers too, I am sure - who have been flinging abuse at me for questioning their questionable approaches to transactions.
Basically, any deal that leaves you in the control of the other party is bound to be a bad or non-real deal.
Take caution. I could list emails that I have come across today but rather than take it public just feel free to send me a message with your deal terms and I will tell you if you should go ahead / be cautious / run away (it is always one of the 3)
