Wonder if the scammer sent himself a bunch of coins or if that many people were stupid enough to send over 1 BTC that person's address...check blockchain.

Scam/Spam

It is easy to fake from email addresses as he said.
Never even consider such emails.

I get a tonne lots from fake blockchain wallets emails

It goes, your balance is running the risk of being erased, download this junk (wallet attachment) etc.

Why would the forum send you forex options? The returns are way too promising from just an email like that.  Stay away from it. If you could, please could you try and get the actual email address and post it here, that would be of great help.

Don't absolutely trust this scammer. At least, if you want to trust them, you have to trust still in Santa Claus ! Because 150% of investment return in only one day is impossible. No one (I think, in good and legal way) can earn that money in few time.

Its clearly a scam. The email address is a fake, like many phishing emails. Don't trust them, in this case, I think it is also a hacker phishing email.

I am pretty sure the email didn't come from bitcointalk.
You can also check the IP and do some fishing.


Title: Re: SCAM OR LEGIT
Post by: bitcoinmining on December 29, 2014, 09:53:33 PM
It's totally a scam; but it doesn't mean scams or ponzies don't make 'some' people win big money. So if you posted this message to the forum after Theymos' explanation, that means you joined that ponzi scheme and wanna make some profit from this IMO.

Sure it didn't come from bitcointalk, but how did they know our email address registered on bitcointalk ? Was the database broken / stolen ?


Title: Re: SCAM OR LEGIT

The first one looks like a ponzi the second one is a password stealer. Don't go there.

Scam/Spam mails

its send by hackers to hack your account i got many emails likes this to steal my Paypal information remember bitcointalk starts with HTTP:// which is secure

this happens when you share your email id with all other fake websites and your email id will be shared to third parties

to check if your email is is in list or not just search your email id at Google search engine you will find answer
