1  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: [SCAM] bitcoinmixer.org is a SCAM on: September 11, 2020, 12:33:23 PM
I'm using the bitcoinmixer.org for a long time because they have the lowest minimum transaction to be mix and right now I'm getting shocked because the minimum deposit must be

0.0044 BTC and the funds I already sent are 0.001864 only and now I experience this.

At the start, I think it looks like a scam now because I don't have enough funds to make an additional deposit but BTC is BTC so I borrow some money just to complete this transaction. I'm glad I got my BTC.
It should probably be the last time you use them or else you will be the next victim. You were lucky because you mixed small amounts of BTC.

OP I insist you report the domain for fraud giving details of how you were scammed. Smartmixer.io pulled off the same scam tactic, the domain was reported and it was taken down

Well if you insist...  Cheesy
PM send.

Sad to see this OP, I hope the 2.6BTC wasn’t a lot of your stash. There's nothing you can do except help to try & ruin their reputation so they can’t keep doing it to other people.

I will be OK, thank you Smiley however I would rather have donated this money to charity than to some scammer.


Can you start a flag against them?

Go to their profile, click trust, click add flag, then follow the steps for a type 3 flag ——>

Make sure you provide the link to this thread as evidence. Let us know when you’ve done it so we can support tye flag.
 

I have supported your flag - thanks!

However, it looks like they have abandoned their account in May 2020, so it will probably make little difference.



Thanks to TheCoinrise.com, for removing another article that promoted the scam site bitcoinmixer.org

As I also wrote, I did 0.5's with no issues so I did not expect to get scammed, I had a larger amount to mix so it would go too slow with very small batches.
Looking back I am just happy I did not loose more.

What can I say, we all make mistakes - its how we learn from them and how we move on in life that counts.
I have accepted my loss Smiley

However this thread will be kept alive as long as scam site bitcoinmixer.org is operating.

Great job! Thanks for the support.

I tried using this website for small amount of transactions and I didn't encounter issues or any problem.

But I guess when it comes to big transactions like this there are so many problems that you encounter, Maybe because of its a good opportunity to scam since its a big amount. I'm not going to use this mixer again.

Yep, I did maybe 40-50 small transaction this year on the scam page bitcoinmixer.org - with no problems! I even mixed 0.5 BTC without any problem.
After I mixed 0.5 I really started to trust them - its a clever scam.  

Money is lost - but if I can save others from loosing money to them, then will I be happy, so happy to hear you will not use them again  Smiley

Yes looking back it was stupid to mix 2.6 in one go - I was actually about to mix a larger amount, but then I decided to divide it up - at least I was happy about that decision  Cheesy

Also:

Shoutout to TheCoinrise.com

They had an article about bitcoin mixers where the scam page bitcoinmixer.org was mentioned, they removed them from the article after I made them aware they are scammers, good to see some responsibility.

We have another mixer scam to the list:
 
bitcoinmixer.org is a SCAM

Reference Link:   bitcoinmixer.org

Amount Scammed:  2.6 BTC

Payment Method: Bitcoin

What happened:
I have been in bitcoin since 2012, I have gone through the first 8 years without getting scammed. Last week did my luck ran out.
bitcoinmixer.org was running a campaign last year on bitcointalk, since then have I used the service for small amounts.
I have always supported new bitcoin startups, bitcoinmixer.org seams like nice project since i believe mixers is much needed in the future due to nature of the bitcoin design.

Unfortunately is bitcoinmixer.org a long haul scam, he has used 6-7 month to build up reputation, through online articles and campaigns.
All made to catch a user that one day will send a large amount of BTC through their mixer.
They certainly build up my trust, since they have been reliable for last 7 month for me.

This is how they scam:
If you send smaller amounts through the mixer, then everything works normally, the coins are mixed without problem.
I have e.e mixed up to 0.5 BTC without any problems.

HOWEVER, if you send larger amounts, then is the money stolen from you.
Its simply build into the algorithm to steal deposit over a certain amount, I don't know exactly the limit, but its between 0.5 and 2.6 BTC.
 
It is difficult to legally prove that they stole the bitcoins unless you can have access to their server source code.
They use a clever trick where they alter the mix information AFTER the deposit is confirmed.
When you look up the deposit address using the mix id, then is the deposit address correctly shown.
However as soon as your deposit is confirmed, then is the deposit address changed, so it looks like you never deposited any funds.
The money you deposited is then later moved to another address, and you will never see them again.

The "support team" is close to impossible to get in touch with and if you do get them, you will get a standard reply:


Dear customer,
we took a look at the mix. Currently there is no deposit yet. From what you describe you might have visited a site that poses as our service. Please make sure that you always visit the correct site at
btcmixnqyq7kljrr.onion or bitcoinmixer.org
You might also want to check if your system has been compromised.
Best regards, Bitcoinmixer


This is not a man-in-the-middle attack, since a hacker would never be able to know what mix that will have large amounts, since the deposit information based on the mix id is changed at large deposits AFTER they are confirmed.
In my case did I of cause check the SSL connection, and I did a "small" transfer just before (0.5 BTC), to make sure I was not being fished. I must admit, I did expect this algorithm, it pretty clever,
the behavior of mixer depend on the deposit size. Its clever since there is not much sense in stealing the small amounts.  

Nevertheless, I have accepted this loss, life goes on.
I just sincerely hope that no one else will get scammed

The only thing I really regret is that bitcoin is still wild-wild-west, like we haven't evolved much since 2012, that is sad...

I have decided not to post the evidence, since bitcoinmixer.org is fully ninja anyway, there is zero percent chance of catching him.
Obviously I have all the evidence saved; address, screenshots etc.  
But I see no reason to have my sensitive bitcoin addresses to be public for nothing.

So you just have to trust me on this one, I have no reason to lie or spread false accusations, I am 100% sure this is a scam.

Please spread the word when you have a chance that bitcoinmixer.org is a scam.

Thank you.

You don't see one of those up for graps often.

I have just read through the whole thread. It was an interesting journey down the memory lane. I followed the drama closely back then - I did not take any side of this drama, since I am highly allergic to drama.

I knew Nubbins from the collectible community, many of the involved people was people I traded with, so I was mostly in the background an neutral.
However I chatted a quite a bit with WC on forum PM and then later on Skype.
He was mainly was he asking me questions / seeking information about different technical aspects of bitcoin, cryptography and blockchain.

I just found my old messages, starting at 2015-01-17, then my last forum message with him was 2015-01-20, from there the conversation moved to skype.

He talked a lot about this infamous "coin 10" ... I have no opinion if the coins exist or not.
I don't know if this info is even relevant?

Nevertheless I will not post a private conversation in public, but teeGUMES you are welcome to send me a PM and I will share those few details I know.

About the youtube video, the only thing I remember was that he smoked a lot of cigarettes while "carving"  Grin
His appearance in the video and the surroundings did not give me the impression that he was one of the few grand master wood artisans.
But I know nothing about wood, so my impression is not really relevant.

i keep saying... the safest thing to do is to buy all the coins/cold wallets from a trustworthy user here in forum.
and there are a lot of them

we all learn from our mistakes

Satori coin is one of the most trusted collectibles out there by far and they/Moto never stepped foot in here. It’s more so do you know who’s behind the project, their name and roughly their location. If they are a registered business are they registered in the British Virgin Islands and domiciled in Dubai or are they established legitimately. Plenty of scammers have come and gone from here.

Microsoul is a great example. Everybody thought gravitate was a trusted user at some point. Now look where he/Microsoul is at :|.

I am not sure Gravitate planned to scam from the beginning.
Mainly because he very early published is own dox.

However, makers like ALITIN COINS was planning this from the beginning, this was a constructed scam, slowly building trust, then they they just sailed away into the horizont with all the corns.

Nice item Smiley

However, times have changed since those went for 16 BTC.
Bitcoiners have finally realized the true value their coins, I am not only talking about value in terms of dollar...
