Utter and complete bullshit. There never was 744,000 bitcoins. Ponzi scheme. If you traded at Mt.Gooks, most likely traded with their fat tubby CEO. He gets USD and BTC. You get. This.

Quote:
On Monday night, a number of leading Bitcoin companies jointly announced that Mt. Gox, the largest exchange for most of Bitcoin’s existence, was planning to file for bankruptcy after months of technological problems and what appeared to have been a major theft. A document circulating widely in the Bitcoin world said the company had lost 744,000 Bitcoins in a theft that had gone unnoticed for years. That would be about 6 percent of the 12.4 million Bitcoins in circulation.

So lets see if I have this right. You give me your Bitcoin. I sell it to someone else, and pocket the money. I don't give you your money as long as possible. At some point, if you get frustrated, and I sell you a bit coin back at an inflated rate. Or I put some bs foreign currency in your account probably at another lousy rate, that I never intend to pay.

Bitcoin can't be traced. I play this game as long as I can, while pocketing as much as I can, and eventually fold up shop and walk.

wow. Flat out stealing.

Sounds alittle bit like what Betonsports did to me.

That was a hell of scam there. I deposit money into BOS poker. Win them thousands of dollars from 6 other sites, that are part of the same pool, and BOS stiffs me and pockets the money. Not only did they keep my deposit, but they kept money that I EARNED them from other sites. That's even worse than just keeping the deposit money.

I remember the day after winning a $4700 payout in a poker tourny, I had a $5600 balance and tried to pull funds, and they wouldn't let me, as it was all locked up. Something about their CEO getting arrested in Texas.

What I don't remember is, were those funds still available to me to play poker, even if I couldn't withdraw? If that is true, then why didn't I sign up for Doylesroom sooner, and dump my BOS balance to my Doylesroom balance in a heads up sitngo format?
