Hi guys,

I came across 2 users on BitLending club and i found their pattern of  borrowing very suspicious

https://bitlendingclub.com/user/index/id/4630/mirelisdiaz

https://bitlendingclub.com/user/index/id/5708/glaidson

Both claim to be husband and wife.

They both have combined active loans of about 300 btc.

Looking on their loan pattern it looks like they are getting new loans to pay the old loans.

Having more than 2 active loan is a big red flag.

Currently one of their loan is funding , if it fills up, they will have a combined 8 active loans.

Looks like an outright ponzi maybe i am wrong.

Here you can see some heated discussion between lenders and them https://bitlendingclub.com/loan/browse/lid/17451/30-d-as-de-btc if you scroll down to comments section.

What i think is maybe it is an account verified with fake id and building a big ponzi that is just waiting to burst.

Maybe i am right or wrong, would like to have inputs from scam watchers here and if someone can do some research on them, could save many people from losing Bitcoins to scams.

There is another way to look at it also (This is not a defence)

They could possibly be struggling to pay due to personal reasons and feel that snowballing is the only way to pay people back without getting a bad reputation. Usually this ends out bad but some people pull it off when they have funds again.

I used to borrow from banks to pay other banks when I had no money and was having treatment. as soon as I was back to work I managed to pay all loans off and no-one is any of the wiser, its a common thing.

It does not matter if they do it for good or bad reasons, it is dangerous either way and i doubt many people can pull of that ''strategy'' and they have already 300 btc in loans which is a really big amount and the bigger it gets the harder it will be for them to pay in the end if they really are legit.
