Coinpayments equity offering and screw-up

So a couple of years ago, I sent $1000 worth of bitcoin to a equity-sharing proposal for coinpayments... then I got an email from their CFO that I didn't 'sign' my documents correctly as by their KYC rules... but they NEVER returned anything BACK to me. I filed a complaint with their customer service at one point but ignore to follow up with them...

Am I entitled to get my coin back? what's your take?

Is it worth to find a security lawyer on this?

That reminds me of the story with the dog, and a bone, and the water. (#180)

The dog was walking near the water with a bone, he noticed there was a bone in the water in another dog's mouth. He thought if he growled and then tried to steal the bone from the other dog he'd have two bones. When he tried he opened his mouth and lost his bone, and got a face full of water and the other dog was just his reflection.

Trying to go after people who cheated you out of $1000 will cost you more than $1000 to sue, it would be small claims court, no lawyer, and a judge. You'd have to give evidence.

They'd also ask why you didn't report the crime to the FBI or Police and taken so long.

You are better off giving Krusty/Procasti some BTC for his work on this project.

A lot of Bitcoin companies are scams based on a Ponzi scheme (#177)

they pay you back by stealing from other accounts and then when it is your turn to cash it in, they refuse making up some BS excuse.

A lawyer would take more than $1000, you are better off giving it to police or the FBI as over $500 in bounced checks, etc are felonies.

Scam artists prey on the elderly as well. My mother kept getting calls from time share lawyers to sell her timeshare and kept wanting more money. If anyone asked why she was sending that much money to tell them it was for her grandson. We never got the $10,000 they stole from my mother after my father died. Sometimes there is nothing you can do and these scam artists get away with it because they know suing them will cost more than the $1000 they stole from you.

I donated $300 to Kuro5hin and Rusty Foster to fix the cancel button and make Scoop in the modern age. I used Paypal and I got a record of it. I'll never see that $300 USD back, Rusty is a con artist as well, shut down his site slowly first by removing the login button, and then turning off new accounts, and then banning people for no good reason.

This site is designed to look like Scoop/Kuro5hin in hopes of replacing it.

I didn't do much work on it, Procasti did the most work, I'm still learning. The Scoop/Kuro5hin look and feel works great in mobile web browsers as well.

So instead of getting my $300 back from Rusty, I just help make something to replace the broken promises he made to you and me and make something better.
