Crypto News & ICO Reviews
My own fault, I got talking to a redditor who had the same name as a trusted guy on localbitcoins and I sent him about £100 worth of stuff. It turns out the guy with the reddit username wasn't the same as the one on localbitcoins (who does seem to be legit). It's such a basic mistake really, and entirely my own fault as I should have verified he was the same person but hey, it happens. Just a reminder for others that things are not always as they seem/don't take everything at face value.
By the way in case the scammer himself reads this, I just wanna say well played. You were pretty convincing in our chats. I'm not broke and didn't really need the money for any essentials, so you haven't caused any major problem. I want to hate you, but I can't help look back at how quickly and effortlessly you managed to scam me and think "I admire the cut of your jib".
And tbh I'm English and the World Cup is on, I kinda need to get used to losing stuff…
