Thanks for the heads up.. Its because of people like you, the world is a better place  Grin

You're welcome.

I thought about it more:

Do you know why they encourage paying with bitcoins?

Quote
Please be aware that your order date is set at the time payment is received, so we recommend Bit-Pay due to it's faster processing time as compared to bank wire transfer. When ordering via Bankwire Transfer, our sales agent will respond with the appropriate payment instructions so that you may make payment and complete your order.

Because BTC is much more easier to run away with than with cash. I wonder how many people actually paid by wire. Zero?

Do you know how many serious companies accept BTC?

Even if the CEO had legit intentions...
... he is doing illegal business! Remember he is under supervised release and even if HE won't run with your money, he could be arrested and sentenced. Do you know what will happen with your BTC then? Do you know that governments usually give a fuck about BTC because it is NOT A CURRENCY?

Totally agree. These guys sound a bit fishy to me

I believe that they are actually going to ship the products.  However, whether or not you'll actually be able to mine any coins with them is another story.  I just bought mine, did the math, and now see that there's going to be a LOT of competition out there.

I don't know who I should feel sorry for; the scammer or the victim who is being scammed by the scammer or the 2nd victim who thinks he/she will get rich who is being scammed by the victim. Its all a transitive scam.

I'm guessing on a friends ordernumber, that it's about 42k orders now. This is based on an order made today, which got a number like 100042xxx and since this follows the Magento default, it's likely to be somewhere in the 42k orders now. Got response on an email I sent them as well, claiming that if I order now, I'll probably get my unit in August.

Surely they have a huge backorder, are the units supposedly already manufactured and in stock or have they still got to manufacture them? Seems like a stretch to ship out about 60k units within 2 months when they don't even seem to have enough units to start shipping out now. Either they don't have the units or they are delaying shipping pre-orders with stocked units, either way this adds to my suspicions lol.

If you are referring to prototypes, yes - look up the luke-jr ASIC miner. If you mean production, none yet, whilst they still accept pre-orders.
