2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Is Westland Storage the next BitConnect SCAM? on: May 22, 2018, 01:42:01 PM
Apparently, a new project named Westland Storage offers a 1% daily return of investment during the working days and 0.5% daily returns during the weekends.
If I am not mistaken and my math still works, they guarantee a 1300% ROI in one year: =1,005^125+1,01^(365-125). Similar calculations drove people to invest in BitConnect as they saw a possibility to make easy and quick money. Here is an old review about BitConnect, that was exposed before it collapsed and was marked as a scam! So this to me sounds pretty much like BitConnect, just another scammy project that promises quick earnings, which definitely raises the guard just by thinking of it as a possibility. Probably many can occur, that there are no shortcuts.

I've done some research and found out that they were reviewed by bitcoinexchangeguide.com, from which they got a positive review. My guess is that they paid for it, but who knows.

However, there are some that see this project a scam as well, which in my opinion clearly is!

4  Economy / Exchanges / Is stocksexchange.io a scam? (different than stocks.exchange) on: April 09, 2018, 08:07:58 AM
Someone registered the domain stocksexchange.io similar to stocks.exchange and I think it’s a scam.
He’s displaying fake transfers on it under Latest Bitcoin Transfers to make it seem that something is happening on the exchange.
On top of that, the FAQ page is a copy of other exchange pages. The owner was sloppy and left links of other pages (“register” links to https://www.altcointrader.co.za/register and there’s a mention of https://www.tradekrypto.com).

Quoted from the page:

     How do I start trading crypto currencies?
Simply register and account with us you may need to update your profile. Once you have and account with us simply deposit money or crypto coins into your sendbitcoin account and you are good to go. Our website is very user-friendly and simple to use!

     Where and how do I buy bitcoin?
Right here on our secure trading site https://www.tradekrypto.com. With us you can buy, sell and trade your bitcoin, litecoin and namecoin.

     Last three FAQs are:
Q. test quest
Q. testert
Q. new ete

To me, it seems a 100% scam.
