Hi I am in the same position. Scammed!
I transferred bitcoin yesterday, all looked good until he asked for 6 confirmations of my transfer before clearing the funds. Eventually he cleared it and when the trading platform seemed poor with too many fluctuations in value I attempted to withdraw all my funds. Received a waiting message. Now his website is down, he has been banned from the forum so the lines of communication are down.

If anyone could help trace this transaction I would really appreciate it.
Here is the blockchain he sent me once I made my transfer.. https://blockchain.info/address/1MKKpiEg7z83xEeMjLiUkDzXq1Tdep8MA3 
Is there any info on where it went afterwards?

Im very new to cryptocurrency :) and perhaps naive... well i was naive.

Here is my record of the transaction.

I am also in the boat with you guys. I know the only way to contact him was on here through the username 'ptsbuy'. Sadly now it looks like we may never see it  :'(

There should have a blacklist system of cryptocurrency, otherwise such scram will bloom everywhere.

I've traced the transactions as far as this address which is linked to this website.. probably his latest scam.
https://blockchain.info/address/1LdHG4mqDP1CDL9bvh9vxTx7ZRc5wRdDYp

https://satoshidice.com/?

..or perhaps he is using his latest stolen BTC to gamble on this site.

Either way.. here is the who is of www.ptsbuy.com
http://www.whois.com/whois/ptsbuy.com

Unfortunately we were conned based on prior successful transactions carried out with ptsbuy.com on the forum. It had been tried and tested a few times.

Admittedly it hadn't been moderator reviewed, but maybe thats the lesson.. moderators could from now on prevent such posts which advertise alleged 'exchanges' until the owner is vouched for.
