Bitcointalk.org SCAM ALERT
« on: March 16, 2013, 08:24:22 PM »
Bitcointalk.org  :twisted: may have been an excellent source of information for beginners and experts alike but... the problem encountered for the average newbie is the crazy amount of false scam alerts by menbers like "worldly" who represents the European Bitcoin Conference - a higly regarded conference organization but who has on more than one occasion posted negative comments on Forex Trading companies that accept bitcoin in exchange for accounts worth $1000+ just because they are in competition with companies he has interests in.

Bitcointalk.org may have a forum based “scammer” tag, and threads made to identify scammers, but any forum administrator is tasked with always having to be careful what content they approve. Which begs the question, it the Bitcointalk.org forum moderator(s) in on the posting of false scam alerts on their key competitors?

Lastly, a lot of members are just plain rude to noobs. They seem to forget that everyone has to start somewhere. A lot are fearful that you might be a scammer with a low post count, but some will go out of their way to try and make you look stupid, even if this they are wrong.

Hi  gregscript,
I received some times spam from a sir Called XXX Perales. I emailed him 2 times. The first he didnt answer me and the second he said me that he cant remove me from his list. I said hem i had a bad day and like to be relaxed. Bitcointalk.org is a big scam.

J\'ai fait la demande Titirus, cela doit être dans les tuyaux, et pas dans les tiroirs je l\'espère.

Hi guys,
I received an email from someone telling me they where shut down and to contact them, which I did, but never heard another reply :'(.
Bitcointalk.org is a big SCAM.
Donc, je n\'ai aucune idée de ce qu\'ils vont faire.
