Title: Question - Possible Scam (or a really good deal)
Post by: g33kski11z on March 31, 2015, 03:48:21 PM
I'm new, and in no way affiliated with MyWallet, but..  I came across this on Yahoo the other day;

"Wallet LTD Energizes The Bitcoin Marketplace With Limited-Time Offer To Buy Bitcoin Above Market Rates"

(not sure if the links will work)
finance.yahoo.com/news/leading-cryptocurrency-broker-wallet-ltd-192500099.html
mywalletbtc.com/

Basically they are buying BTC at 10% markup..  not really sure why, but 'sounds too good to be true, it ususally is' comes to mind..

Thoughts..??  (remember, I'm new, so please don't flame.. )

I did a google search and a search on bitcointalk. They have no online presence so I wouldn't deposit there If I were you. Looks like a scam.

I also found it on this list: http://www.badbitcoin.org/thebadlist/

Does it sounds too good to be true? If yes then avoid it, ESPECIALLY WITH CRYPTO.

Funny you responded... I noticed your signature and wonder, how good of an exchange is Bit-X..?  Trust worthy?
