User "PTS_miner" requested a trade and suggested favdesu as escrow.
I accepted conditions and got a mail by "favdesu." (note the dot)
I noticed "favdesu." writing me in english but I know he knows I'm german as he is, first I thought it was just a copy&paste PM.
But then I saw the "Newbie" and "0 Posts". I almost died because I was seconds before sending 600 PTS! (!)Scammers Profile Link:

If he's up for it Ill drop favdesu a pm too about acting as escrow.
I have been asked by PTS_miner to facilitate a trade through Escrow.
I am a forum approved Escrow provider -
Terms of deal -
600 PTS @ 15 bitcoin
Address for transaction -
After 3 confirmations funds will be sent to complete the transaction.
Should any problem occur funds will be returned to the sender and the trade will be cancelled.
my friend has agreed to throw in 5 bitcoin for a 3rd of the PTS.
Will take a little while for him to transfer the bitcoin to my wallet.
I have dropped favdesu a pm regarding escrow,
dont mind holding these for a while,
hope it pays off as its cleaned my bitcoin wallet out.
arse twitching lol
still waiting on the confirmations from the bitcoin my mate sent over.
As soon as they clear ill get the lot over to the escrow address
Bitcoin now on its way to favdesuAdditional Notes:
Have to pick the wife up from work, so hopefully by the time I get back ill be PTS rich
Be careful of similar attempts! Double check even escrow partners!
