[quote=“FuzzyBear, post:12, topic:1238”][quote=“ppcman, post:8, topic:1238”]Has anyone done any extensive research on the validity of this company before asking them to accept PPC?
Apparently their phone number is 513-428-9282 which is tied with collectpma.com (same color scheme, similar design)
If you go to register on collectpma.com and read their terms and conditions, it states:
“The Trustee and members have chosen Anthony Murgio as the person best qualified to perform
services to members of the Association and to entrust him to select other members…”
A quick search on Anthony Murgio in Florida reveals this for January 2013:
“Anthony Murgio, the owner of Tapas Lounge, Inc., located in Tallahassee, Florida, has been arrested on charges that he stole more than $110,000 in sales tax he collected from customers…”
“If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines, as well as possible payment of penalty and investigative costs.”

… this domain name (coin.mx) was only registered on October 17, 2013, barely 2 months ago. They haven’t established themselves in the community yet. With this shady business person (Anthony Murgio) involved, I think it would be cause for concern.
…the domain name collectpma.com was only registered July 13, 2013, so we don’t know much about them either.
[Edit: If there is multiple Anthony Murgio’s in Florida and this one isn’t related, my apologies][/quote]
+1 at this … we can all be called to action on a swarm and we all go gun ho into it following the guide to ask for PPC… yet EVERY thime i am trusting JBT or the initial OP that they have done thier homework on the site. I think I may need to employ a team of insiders who will just investigate the legetimacy of sites etc… I never received my beef jerky as well which i paid some 60PPC for… anyone else get theirs?
Before making the recommendation, I’ve seen posts from trustworthy people on Bitcointalk that they received their coins. I simply don’t have the time for deep dives… it’s one thing if we were making a recommendation to use them, that would call for an organized testing process.
PPCMan brings up a good point:
"I don’t doubt that coin.mx will give you your cryptocoins today, tomorrow, a week from now to build initial credibility.
But in the long term, when the volume increases, then what? :)"
So if we’re going to create some type of criteria, we need ** active ** people that can help with the evaluation. I’m all for it, just need resources to do it.
