Carnth contacted me on 23th feb. He asked me if I like to buy titan cubes from him cause he's currently visiting germany and got everything with him ...
He made me a very good offer for the titan with immediately btc payment and shipping.
Obviously I had some doubts and asked for a proof that he's not an imposter. Of course his Admin Level and Chief of LA should be enough he told me.
I Asked for a signed message with a LTC addy he used to gather some funds some time ago - he answered he don't have the key anymore.
The last thing I asked was a PGP signed message with the original LA PGP Key.
!! I NEVER HEARD ANYTHING AFTER THAT REQUEST FROM CARNTH !!
After that I contacted Sy and ask for verification and told him the whole story. I even proposed to give out a warning because the whole behavior of carnth was very strange.
He tried to talk to HauntingShade and contact carnth via hangout but WITHOUT SUCCESS. Because Carnth is also Admin he couldn't be tracked by IP ..
Hopefully the forum is not infiltrated in any way ?!
Well we may be s*th out of luck
I paid 110 LTC to him for one supposedly working titan cube...and heard nothing since Feb 23rd I think he was last on. The LTC was emptied out of the wallet on 3/4/16
not sure how it was done...but we could have been taken it seems
I pm'd you
edit: re-read above....so at least you did not get took I guess. But if this forum can have a 'hacked' admin account (1 of 4) for more then 1 month etc....that imho means ALL of
litecointalk is at risk ...everyone better change their frigging password NOW imho....won't do any good on this site if he had admin powers (again 1 of 4) but better change them if used on other sites.
in 20/20 hindsight w/o the above example I may have been scammed ..could not see my self doing any different above...have gotten 1 full titan (bitcointalk member) no issues...got another cube from on here no escrow also no problem.....long term members I thought I was ok)..thus if this is a scam walked right into it
anyway so it goes live and learn ...prob did not need another titan cube anyway (110 ltc by by) I run this as a biz so over 5 years can get 25% applied in usd towards taxes owed...in the future ....I can get back and/or 12.5% back in 2017 is how it works i USA now....rest split over next 4 yrs....so worst case before I wrap up this home miner crypto biz say by Dec 31st 2018 I would at least in used...again applied to taxes owed from mining etc.... be out only 92.8125 LTC as applied to taxes....ain't much but something
but again ...if his account was hacked and no one could tell till now..after what a month since he re-appeared?....well ...I guess I'll be moving over to 100% bitcointalk.org as a result....that is the elephant in the room imho...if an admin account has been hacked then he has full run of all passwords and pm's etc..I'd be so out of here the whole forum has been compromised imho
oh well ...I'll be the first to know I guess champ or chump......live an learn
