BitClub Network claims 1% of the entire Bitcoin mining capacity.

BitClub Network are promising 1000% increase in value of their 'memberships' within six months.

BitClub Network are promising Bitcoin networked ATM's and Bitcoin debit cards.

Wow Great, you say, a real professional cloud mining operation at last!
Then you read about the $99 'membership' fee.
Then you see the 1000 day roi.
Then you read about their "cutting edge referral based pay plan".
Then you read about Clubcoin, their PoS marvellous innovation, coming soon.

It's all here, have a read

Wow, lots of reading, you say, gimme the tl:dr.
OK, let's start at the beginning, their website. Take any one of the many many addresses they use, they all lead to this

http://bitclub.io/mining/mining



That's what we like to see, full of information and testimonials from real life customers!
Well, not much information, but look, real life customers!
There's Amy from Romania



Who could be Monica from Rome
http://jericko.net/index.php/monica
or just be a very pretty, Romanian bitcoin enthusiast who's looking for a boyfriend
http://dating-en-relatie.com/Romanian-women.html

Then there's Mike Jones from California



Who looks a bit like Mike Jones from Cape Town

https://plus.google.com/107168767283731452906/about

And the chap in the screenshot above, Victor Diaz from Chaco, Brazil according to BitClub.
They even quote him in Spanish (I thought Brazilians spoke Portuguese, but no matter)
"Thank you thank you thank you! BitClub has been very good for me. I really need passive income and gave himself for me BitClub"

The only problem is that Victor from Brazil, the Bitclub investor, is in fact, Ali Ansari a rapist from India.



I can recently remember at least three "cloudmining investments" companies who used fake pictures of clients or management in their publicity. They all protested that it was an innocent error by a third party. They all turned out to be liars and scammers.

This just the tip of the iceberg, much more to follow.....

Looks like you found a good cause to replace your now defunct cloudminr sig Smiley

There are so many things that can be said about this, sadly most of them will just give the obviously stupid scammers tips for the next scheme, so I'll have to consider what to post.

The clubcoin is right out of the fibonnaci (sp?) and gaw playbooks, not only will they take your bitcoins you'll also end up being bagholders for their shitcoin.

The only thing that is 1000 about this is the chance of it being legit, 1000-1

Oh I can't wait to hear how they will try and spin Ali Ansari as the 'happy investor', that is an epic fail on an unparalleled magnitude.

Stay WELL away from this bullshit, the "victor diaz" is actually a picture taken from a news site for goodness sake!

Yeah, but like most honest, legit, above board cloudminers, they don't want you to only reinvest 30% of the make believe earnings that you didn't really earn anyway, they want you to "re-invest" everything.
So, they very kindly make it simple for you.
Just dial it up to 100% and watch those magic numbers grow....



Yeah, there's always "exciting stuff" happening 'soon' with these MLM deals....like Clubcoin, let's have a close look at that "exciting stuff" next...

Oh, surprise, surprise, our totally legitimate friends at BCN seem to have noticed that their happy customers aren't so totally legitimate....



Time for a
1) weasel worded lie about web page designers
2) ad hominem attack
3) "If we're a scam what about the blockchain?" strawman

Take your pick....

On the contrary, I should think many hundreds of people have people have drunk the MLM Kool Aid and parted with lump sums under varying degrees of pressure and remorseless salesmanship.
Look through the presentations and webinars and referral targets on the BCN websites: this is what MLM does, it takes a credible idea and remorselessly hypes it up and up to unsuspecting civilians who know nothing about the core subject.
This type of marketing is done to friends, family or strangers; anyone who can be persuaded to part with money and start the referrals cranking in is fair game to Multi level marketers.

These are highly organised, well financed operations undertaken by serial scam promoters and relentlessly pushed by their marketing foot soldiers, all dreaming of getting to the top of the pyramid and milking it before it collapses under its own weight.

I just read the whole thread when someone I don't know came up in the chatbox of vip.bitcoin.co.id (Indonesia Biggest Exchanger) claiming that there will be a roadshow seminar around Indonesia about Bitcoin. After a word or two, he claimed that he's promoting www.bitclubindonesia.com 'A real investment'. Now, I have to warn everybody.

Upon clicking this thread, I found the rapist within 60 seconds, coming back here to read further to see if I would be the first to present such. I wonder if Leroy Fodor is connected to this site in any fashion. I know, it'll be a stretch given that Leroy hasn't, doesn't nor will ever lie.

Let me guess: Leroy Fodor's StakeMiners in the Philippines is sponsoring the roadshow.

I don't really know, Bruno. But I'll update it when it comes to my city because he said he'll bring a Bitcoin expert from the United States.

The video is the most retarded fiverr video ever, its worse than the cloudthink one. I think even the guy paid £5.00 for the video was stuttering a bit on the 1000 for 1 share, etc etc.

I know it only seems like a small thing, these false pictures and non existent customers: "Hey, everyone does it, it's just marketing, doesn't mean anything!" but I don't see it like that. Once someone is established as a liar, then exactly how much of what else that they say can be trusted?

I know people who work in boiler room scams, confidence tricks and the MLM industry: in order to do the job properly they have to have the right psychological approach to the clients victims.
In order to avoid any compassion or sympathy as they hassle people night and day to part with whatever money they have in order to hit their targets, they effectively dehumanise the marks, treat them with contempt and laugh at them.
Some actually place bets on how absurd a pitch they can make and still be successful.

This is where the picture of the rapist/client comes in.
It's reasonable to assume that whoever used that picture of Ansari and gave him the ID of a fictional Brazilian client of BitClub Network, knew where the picture came from and who he was, what crime he had committed. This is the contempt I refer to, "Hey, these people are so fucking stupid, let's show them a picture of a rapist and say he's a client, I bet they don't even fucking notice!"

But someone's had their ass kicked, and the picture's been changed.
A real pro job they've made of it too....

They must have them on a different rotation somehow, the rapist is still listed in that group of 'satisfied investors' when I load it up.
