Initially I think LTCGear was a cloud Litecoin miner who then stopped paying out. This person then said that you would be able to upgrade or something, and didn't actually mine any coins. Then he was asking for some coins so he could release your coins. Basically he was running a ponzi scheme.
If anyone recommends LTCGear to you, please stay away. Do something little, such as recommending LTCGear to another member, and I will ban you.
LTCGear ended up being a giant shithole for everyone, including the mods of LTCtalk.org.
