Total scam.
Both egopay.com and virtex.com

FBI has been informed now.
2  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: Virtex! A new online cryptocurrency trading platform on: March 31, 2015, 08:04:02 PM
Both egopay.com and virtex.com are now down (and probably gone forever)

If anyone has more info on the crooks behind these two sites, CEO Mantas Gustys and founder Tadas Kasputis, please post here or contact via PM. We are working on getting Latvian law enforcement to pursue the matter since they have so far not contacted any of their users with a proposal to pay us back what they stole.
Thanks to longtime user bitboy11, the heist has already been reported to the FBI.

Never again will I trust Tadas Kasputis, Paulius Meskauskas, Mantas Gustys and Tomas Andzelis.
The sites are down, both egopay.com and virtex.com, and I lost a lot.

They have been reported to the FBI by another user and we are compiling more evidence now, since they have not yet contacted us and expressed any willingness to pay us back what they stole.

Egopay.com is down, the scammers are gone.
I had money there with them AND with their equally scammy bitcoin exchange virtex.com

Scams are not legal.  Some of us are working on getting these guys to justice.

Yes, both egopay.com and virtex.com are gone ...poof, off the air.
But the crooks behind them are still out there, and they still have all of our money.

12  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Virtex is SCAM. Don't deposite money there. Don't trade there. on: March 06, 2015, 01:13:27 PM
It looks like they closed it because too many illegal funds came in and they will have to check every single transaction.
They have the right to close their business for whatever reason they want.
But they DO NOT have the right to abscond with funds that do not belong to them.

If Virtex wanted to close because of [insert reason here], then that is perfectly fine.
Just make sure you pay us first.

We are the innocent victims and it is our money that they have stolen.

it might be temporary.

Let us hope so. Bring the site back, and then start paying the oldest account holders first.
I am one of those with money stuck in Virtex, which is owned by the same crooks that are also behind Egopay.

There is no reason to go offline "just like that".
I completely agree.  They should at least explain what is happening (that is what company blogs are for), and then let us know how they plan to refund the money that they owe to their users.

Otherwise it is theft and that is a criminal offense.

I regret that I have not read this thread earlier.

Now I cannot connect to anything of virtex.com
I have around 10,000 USD with them and I just wish if you have anyone who have already filed a case with police, please also let me know.
OUCH!  This is definitely grounds for a criminal case.

Do you have proof or evidence of your funds? The police will want that, especially if we are going to seek the extradition of Mantas and Tadus.

Like bitboy earlier in the thread, I also took screenshots of my account (as well as kept a folder with other documentary evidence).
I know exactly what I am owed, right down to the last penny, and the only way that these scammers can avoid the consequences is if they begin to pay back what they unlawfully took.

Why are the sites still up?  What is their endgame?

For the record: I have still not been paid either. I hold accounts with both EgoPay and Virtex, and my balance with Virtex is substantial (both in fiat and BTC).  It has been more than 40 days since I requested payment but they haven't as much as sent an email... and of course no money either, yet.
15  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: EgoPay servers compromised? Sending fake transactions to merchants on: February 04, 2015, 12:29:45 PM
The people who created EgoPay are the same people who also went on to later create Virtex.com, which is a bitcoin exchange that has not paid out anything or allowed its users to withdraw any money for the past month.

The site is still up and it appears to be active. But those of us who are verified users (such as myself) can simply just not get our money out. Fiat withdrawals don't work and requests for BTC withdrawals are also ignored. 

16  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Virtex is SCAM. Don't deposite money there. Don't trade there. on: January 30, 2015, 09:53:41 AM
No good news yet:

I made my first withdrawal request from Virtex.com on January 06, but have heard NOTHING back yet (and of course not money yet either).
They owe me both fiat money AND bitcoin.

Meanwhile, the site is still up and online. It appears to be trading. There is no blogpost, no email updates, nothing at all to alert the unsuspicious that anything is wrong.  They are simply just not communicating with their victims, and we are the ones who have lost thousands.

We need to take police action against Tadas Kasputis and his collaborators (Paulius Meskauskas, Tomas Andzelis, Mantas Gustys).

EDIT: I would exclude Erik Schryvers, because I don't think he was involved, but he had early contact with the con-men behind Virtex, even from before the time that they established their scam, so perhaps he can be a witness in the trial against them when they are caught.
17  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: virtex.com is a scam? on: January 27, 2015, 10:48:14 AM
After twenty days, still nothing.  No money from them and not a single reply to any of the multiple support tickets.  At least EgoPay communicated via a blogpost: But with virtex.com so far it is complete silence.

Lithuanian scammers.

I am getting seriously annoyed.

MILLIONS STOLEN: INSIDE THE ELABORATE BITCOIN SCAMS OF TADAS KASPUTIS, EGOPAY, VIRTEX.COM & PAYMENTBASE

Quote from the article:
"The tale of Tadas Kasputis and his related Bitcoin companies is far more complicated, spans multiple countries, and may quite possibly be the most elaborate Bitcoin scam in the history of Cryptocurrency."

It also lists the collaborators of what the article says is his "scam empire": Paulius Meskauskas, Tomas Andzelis, Mantas Gustys and Erik Schryvers.

Finally it urges involvement by Consumer Affairs, the police, and potentially the FBI.

For me, the situation is still the same:
I am Virtex.com victim and I haven't yet gotten a single cent out.  They are not paying neither BTC withdrawals, nor my request for a larger number of euros which are currently held hostage on their scam site.
