1  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: HKCEx breaks the market. 8.88% bonus on deposit, high rates and more! on: June 05, 2014, 08:09:01 AM

Intersting? Pathetic I'd say. Coindesk is a guilty as all the other BTC "news" websites that were promoting HKCex when they allegedly raised $2m in funds. Now after WEEKS since it has been a confirmed scam they come up with such an article. Any average blogger (I don't wanna call these guys journalists) must have recognized that HKCex was a fake from the start.

Thanks for the update!

Looks like the paypal address was a dead end, so the name (lavin lam) is also probably fake.

However it's possible they registered at Taka but with a different company name.

Yeah, thanks a lot indeed!

Although, this is getting a bit frustrating, I am pretty certain that if we keep digging something useful will surface. Lavin Lam might be fake, this address might be fake, but people setting up fake stuff, are frequently connected somehow to their fake stuff. In most cases they don't keep it a 100% random.

I dunno if Paypal is willing to help in a Bitcoin related case, but I wonder how the account was funded!?

Man or woman?

The question is if the identity was just stolen or not? I guess it was Wink I mean, people hiding behind multiple VPN providers won't give their name to anyone.

Well, we just need to keep digging...

We must verify that address, telephone and that ip`is from another VPS service. We must ask too

Very well done, sir! I have a feeling we are getting somewhere in the end...


Following screenshots from Google Streetview








Even though this address is most likely a fake one, maybe they were not chosen randomly. Would be great if someone in HK could go there to have a look.

Any update regarding that trace?

I did a quick search on that name and found this guy very capable of setting up such scheme >>> http://www.linkedin.com/in/wuhaisheng

In general, the name is obviously all but common!

 Roll Eyes

Could we think they are changing server again? Or could we think they seal us?

Seems like they wanna be sure that they left no evidence which might identify them before they start moving coins. Once those crooks feel save, our moniez will be insta-gone...
7  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: HKCEx breaks the market. 8.88% bonus on deposit, high rates and more! on: June 01, 2014, 12:04:02 AM
I want to know Why BTC world like coindesk Cryptonews cointelegraph and others haven't notified anything about that Theme. if a lot of people are losing their savings funds.

The only reason why don't write freakin word can have two major reasons IMFAO.

First, they don't want to admit that they were promoting an obvious scam before. When HKCex allegedly collected $3m it was spread all over the major BTC "news" websites. By the way, it seems pretty obvious that Coindesk (e.g) is getting paid to promote shady companies accepting Bitcoin anyways. Just take a look at those trading platforms they write/wrote about. Usually, they are the worst one can find. And they know! Or don't ever research those companies, doing C/P journalism.

The other reason is quite simple. They are part of that scheme and are getting paid to shut up.

Well, both scenarios are, at least, not very unlikely Wink

Shame on those wannabe-journalists!

8  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: HKCEx breaks the market. 8.88% bonus on deposit, high rates and more! on: May 30, 2014, 08:40:22 PM
wasn't it like sending 10 cents to the adress and add the HATE-NOTE in the field on top?


Yeah, but as correctly mentioned by MrWDunne already, they are probably going to tumble the coins and that is pretty much it.

But with those traces to specific individuals involved, we still have a good chance to get them back before they just disappear. Let's fucking hunt those cunts down! As I said earlier they were complete amateurs not knowing what exactly they are doing! Scam n0000bs so to say.

So, please keep this thread updated and pumping, fellas. We need any support now!


All the best!

Interestingly, the name appears as a member of the bitcoin foundation.

Will update if I find anything else.

Are you fucking kidding? WOW, that would be a real blow!!!

Yeah. It's gone. Finally...

But it seems like they didn't move coins, yet. Mine are still in the provided deposit address. Is there any way to mark those coins as stolen?

 Huh  Roll Eyes
11  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: HKCEx breaks the market. 8.88% bonus on deposit, high rates and more! on: May 23, 2014, 11:10:29 PM
I'm more surprised that they chose to run this soon.

Very simple... Those guys are fucking idiots. Probably some amateurs, who crapped their pants as soon as they realized how foolish they were running this scam.

For example, I would have had the Bonus connected to a certain limitation on the first withdrawal (not before the 1st of June e.g.). Moreover, their trading bot was set to a price level which was ridiculously high. I mean 5-10% over Stamp plus those 8.88% bonus would certainly had been way enough of an incentive. Most likely, even more effective...

Bottom line, there would still be lots of moniez coming in right now in case they would have done their jobs properly. I had an intense conversation with "Orlando" about them being very amateurish. They totally failed! And this is also why we can be pretty positive about them getting caught sooonish.... At least, I hope so Wink

So, in case you plan to run the next scam feel free to consult me upfront Cheesy

Looking forward...
12  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: HKCEx breaks the market. 8.88% bonus on deposit, high rates and more! on: May 23, 2014, 04:30:39 PM
Yeah. It's over... But now the hunt is officially on. I bet they were a bit surprised by being exposed that fast. There is a good chance for them making mistakes which might lead straight to their doorstep. I sincerely hope that they will be getting doxxed soon.

The only thing we still need to do is reporting them to law enforcement, as there are Interpol, HK Police as well as Singapore Police, and of course to the hosting company. I can't believe that the website is still up and running... That is fucking disgusting!

Well, take care.

Cheers

The registrant's information is public in the case of fuckday.info, but there is another thing which bothers me the most atm.

I wonder how the US government, to be more precise the USCC, is involved in all this. Their USCC Economic Issue Brief No. 4 "Bitcoin’s Uncertain Future in China" published on the 12th May 2014 by Lauren Gloudeman is more than suspicious. It almost seems like they were part of preparing this large-scale scam. The timing might have been just coincidence, but the miserable research most definitely was not. The report is obviously propagating Hong Kong "to be primed for Bitcoin’s successful takeoff as a medium of exchange" (p.15)

Moreover, Lauren Gloudeman uses a map allegedly taken from HKCex.net that shows different Bitcoin ATM locations. Even more suspicious that Cex is ONLY mentioned ONCE in the graphic's caption. No additional word about the new exchange in the whole paper. And it did in fact misguide me provided that it has been one of the main reasons I decided to deposit, ending up tarp'd. While I have to admit that I only scanned the content it was crystal clear to me that the US government would not promote, nor mention possibly fraudulent businesses in such a report.

http://origin.www.uscc.gov/sites/default/files/Research/USCC%20Economic%20Issue%20Brief%20-%20Bitcoin%20-%2005%2012%2014.pdf


Could it be that this whole fraud was orchestra'd by a conspiracy of different Western individuals/organizations trying to fool Chinese into the HKCex scam??? Not as unlikely as you might think now. That is for certain. 

By the way, don't you wonder why most English writing BTC news websites kept calm about those $25 million raised, although they have been reporting the alleged investment of $2 million like it has been a huge event back then?


Well, take a look yourself at what is written on pages 13-15 and make up your own mind about all that...

Following the address where MG Foreign Exchange Limited, the company found in the website's footer, is allegedly registered.

PLUS, there seems to be another domain with the same IP address as hkcex.net >>> fuckday.info >>> http://domain-kb.com/ipv4/124.248.221.5

Just coincidence or a fkn bad joke?

Yeah. That "business address" is the final proof that we got Cexx'd. Following another part of that mysterious "office building" taken from Google Street. They were captured back in 2011, so they are a bit old, but it is more than obvious that this is not even a business district where you would expect one of the most secure Crypto Exchanges to be located  Roll Eyes









Officially Fucked! I really hope those scumbags are getting doxxed very soooonish. I wanna see them burn!

I am so fkn pissed. Let's fundraise some to hire a hitman. Who is down with that?
16  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: HKCEx breaks the market. 8.88% bonus on deposit, high rates and more! on: May 17, 2014, 07:38:19 AM
Regretfully, it doesn't look good at all.

While I managed to escape from Mt.Gox only a few weeks before they went down, it seems they finally got me. Looking back, I cannot believe how careless I must have been to deposit 5.5BTC and 10kWDC. It was probably to the massive lack of sleep mixed with a couple of beers and a bottle vine.

I guess I was one of the first trolls who came across the news about HKCex collecting $25mio from investors in some Chinese blog and I didn't even wonder about the 8.88% or the BTC exchange rate way above other exchanges. To add some reasoning here,  I expected BTC/USD to skyrocket and thought they were just making proper incentives to take over a good chunk of the market. So, I came to the conclusion that as soon as traders were rushing into the new exchange the price then would quickly adjust somewhere between 470 and 500USD. After weeks of going sideways, I was just so convinced and excited that there finally might be some price movement due to HKCex stepping into the market (amonst many other indications), that I didn't see those huge red flags. Seriously, I am not a n000b, but feel free to call me a fool instead, if you like to call me names... But maybe some of you can even see how I got tarped.

As the price kept on stagnating at those insane prices - even after the news was finally around (approx. 6hrs after I deposited, sold, happy about a great deal) - and first reports about withdrawal issues were surfacing, I got suspicious. First, I assumed that time limitations were self-explanatory to prevent folks from taking bonus and insta-withdraw. But then their support told me otherwise. Ever since we have been in intense contact  Wink

But hey, the presumption of innocence also applies to HKCex. Therefore, I have set them a deadline to process my withdrawal requests which is running out this afternoon. So from my perspective, it is still too early to call it a scam. But in case I don't get my crypto back real sooonish, I gonna provide hard evidence for some questionable business practices, to say the least. I took their website apart, did some research on their background and found amazing stuff you most likely didn't notice when scanning the content. With that said, let's hope for the best and prepare for the worst.  

All the best... And don't get Cex'd!

19  Economy / Service Discussion / 5 Damn Good Reasons to Go Chinese on: April 23, 2014, 01:44:41 AM
Since it is becoming increasingly obvious that Non-Chinese Bitcoin exchanges barely have a future, trad000rs must consider moving their valued BTC/LTC to one of the two leading Chinese exchanges. Despite all the FUD that has been spread since late 2013, Huobi and Okcoin have constantly been making progress what finally led to their dominant position in Bitcoin trading.

On the contrary, it seems like BTC-e and Bitstamp might be sharing the fate of Mt.Gox one day. Shrinking volume and the growing use of trading bots are just two huge red flags pointing to a bitter end ahead.

We all have been through this once! And we all know the signs!

to help you make a decision here, please note the following 5 damn good reasons to go Chinese.


#1 Trading with the market maker

By now, it is out of any question that Chinese exchanges are the ONE and ONLY market makers in Bitcoin trading. Everybody denying that simple fact, is a fool.


#2 Trading volume

Just another very obvious fact. The trading volume of Chinese Bitcoin exchanges has been constantly increasing ever since.. resulting in the recent situation where approximately* 80-90%(!!!) of all Bitcoins are traded on Huobi and Okcoin.

While such massive rise is very impressing on the one side, it is a huge matter of concern on the other. No volume = No fees = No profit. It's easy as that. As far as most Western exchanges are concerned! There are NO FEES on Huobi, nor Okcoin.

Needless to say that high volume does also play a major role for trad000rs. It implicates high liquidity leading to better trading opportunities.

*While I did calculate those figures for myself once, bitcoinity does give the best overview of that huge gap unfolding, BUT it only tracks Huobi >>>

http://bitcoinity.org/markets/list?currency=ALL&span=3d

Taking into account that the trading volume on OKcoin is even exceeding the one on Huobi, you can easily do the math yourself. Both together cover close to 90% of Bitcoins traded every day. And it is still increasing on a daily basis.


#3 Trading with leverage

IMFAO this is one of the most interesting features you will find on Huobi. You can borrow CNY or BTC from other trad000rs/institutions in relation to the amount deposited resulting into a 1:3 leverage. This is a very healthy ratio giving you the opportunity to cash in trice. Interest rates around 0.1-0.3% per day are very reasonable as well.


#4 Trading API

Hands down, I have been trading on almost any possible exchange despite OKcoin. The trading experience and handling of Huobi's trading API is simply great, easy to use and waaaaay more advanced than all the other crap. The technical edge compared to Stamp or BTC-e is massive!


#5 Customer Service

Also great on Huobi. There is ALWAYS someone you can chat with if you ahve any questions or problems. Just use google translate to get those Chinese signs. They do understand everything just fine!

Fock me. That must be enough...

Bottom line, I highly recommend moving your funds to Huobi. You gonna love it!

Check it out and give it a try.

All The Best
20  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Is HUOBI about to blow up in our face? on: March 23, 2014, 06:28:00 PM
@sinx13
Ok, I agree that does make sense indeed. But I have a hard time buying this whale version. I just cannot imagine someone panic-selling that crazy in a blink of an eye. Plus the version I read on some Chinese blog was a bit different involving high profile fraud using LTC derivatives. But maybe I am just mistaken, since I cannot tell how accurate Google Translate is working. One or the other way, nothing positive about something like this going down on a major exchange. I guess we can agree on that Wink

Last but not least, you are right that some of my BTC were held hostage on Gox, but eventually I got out 1 or 2 weeks before they went down the drain. So, I am not sour because I lost some coins. Actually, I claim my opinion to be pretty objective and properly analyzed.
