A statement on the Litecoin Association's view on purchasing items through the forum LitecoinTalk.org
You, the consumer, make purchases of a "FutureBit Moonlander" with deposits made directly into a Litecoin Address provided by the seller, with no guarantee of the product being shipped. You must take precaution(s) when purchasing such items from a sole trader, and is not registered as a company.
Be prepared to only spend money that you are sure to that you will be able to afford the potential losses. The Litecoin Association promotes 'escrow' as the preferred method of payment to sole traders who are not yet prooved to be entirely legitimate.
We do understand that this may be a legitimate sole trader with the intentions of providing you, the customer, with the mentioned goods. The Litecoin Association cannot make any guarantee the delivery of purchased items, and thus, this message must be made clear.
Purchase at your own risk. The Litecoin Association neither promotes or dispuite the selling of goods and instead promotes for potential customers to put great consideration into their purchase.
I find this post hilarious...especially coming from someone who is in the "Litecoin Association." I am well known in both litecoin and bitcoin communities and have done nothing but help out and try and promote litecoin since I have been here. You have not posted anything similar anywhere else, and I question your intent in this post. Especially since real scams are all over this forum and litecointalk has turned mostly into a LTCGear Scam seller forum anyway.
Its people like you that make me want to just reconsider this project and refund everyone and forget about litecoin. I have put all my free time into this project, and alot of people are excited about it. Im sure everyone that knows me here would agree with me, and find your post WAY out of line and offensive. If I was taking full price for this project with private addresses, I could possibly see you warranting posting something like this. I have taken a small deposit to ensure the people that say want a stick, will end up buying a stick when I ship them. If anyone it is only me that can get screwed over since im paying thousands to buy the components out of my own pocket, and spending countless hours to assemble, write the driver and ship these. As you can clearly see in the public project address not a single litecoin has been touched, nor will be touched until way after all the sticks have shipped. If someone wants to pay their final amount with escrow, they can by all means do so, but a public project address by a trusted member of the community (and please prove otherwise) is just as safe.
"Registered Companies" as you put it are the ones that have scammed and ruined the name of litecoin/crypto currencies in general, and have made the users, including myself, not want to deal with it at all anymore...which is the reason why Litecoin wont grow. I am trying to do the exact opposite, and generate some life into litecoin with a small fun community driven project, that has been completely open and transparent since the beginning, and can maybe grow into something bigger in the future.
Go troll someone else, and actually do something productive with your "LA" title that will HELP the litecoin community instead of hinder it. Maybe your first course of action would be to create a sticky of exactly what you posted, for everyone to see...instead of discriminantly posting in just this thread for absolutely no reason. Oh and go post this in every LTCGear seller thread as well...you have a lot of work to do.
