it found a  keylogger and some other crap from there site


Can you corroborate that allegation and provide specific details for others who are presumably infected? Don't get me wrong, I think the person(s) running this scheme are beyond despicable and I wouldn't put it past them, but I don't think making allegations helps our cause. The fact that zeushash a/k/a/ halleybtc are scamming people should be reason enough for people to stay clear. The links in your signature do not add credibility to your claim imho.

This person(s) behind halleybtc are cearly highly intelligent & motivated; it is a shame they aren't doing something productive with their time. They could easily generate money in an ethical way that genuinely helps their fellow man

Fwiw, it seems our next scheme may be called OXbtc
https://github.com/AaronTsui

They posted the above on a public repository so I have no problem sharing that link. I have found this persons employer (current & former) and a lot more information, but won't divulge that here without concrete information that they are responsible for operating this. At the very least, they are certainly responsible for some or all of the programming.

Whomever is running this, if you are reading this, you still have the opportunity to honor my cancellation request & refund my btc. If/when you do that, I will stop digging.

Hate to say this but do you really think the SEC is going to care about a little ponzi site like this ? Don't they go after securities fraud and like big money operations ?

You are right I guess it wouldn't take much in the way of resources to close down a website lol  Just don't tell the SEC about this forum because there is a lot of illegal activity going on in every topic on this forum lol

Im seeing alot of negativity in this thread and prejudgment based on past experiences. Im not saying its not justified, I just find it interesting how this thread immediately went into scam talk. Iv been scammed by related sites more times than I can keep track of, The majority of those now confirmed scams had majority support by people in the threads (at least early on).

Has it now gotten to the point that we have been scammed so many times that it is simply not possible for a truly legitimate crypto company to launch and succeed without having the past failures of other company's/groups prematurely superimposed. We have been burned so many times by people we though we could trust, that we simply do not trust anyone anymore? (Again, I am not saying Hallybtc is legit by any means, this is a blanket statement).

This concept depresses me when considering the future of crypto.  

ANYHOW,
I just read though this forum and you guys have successfully scared me into immediately withdrawing my balance on Hallybtc. Although the company themselves have done absolutely nothing wrong to me personally, I am no longer using them and highly doubt I will ever return. Mental conflict, damn this crypto reality.   Roll Eyes

FYI, I withdrew 0.1 with some change, their prompt told me the withdraw would take up to 12 hours. I received the coin within 20 Minutes of making the withdraw.
Also I noticed that they do not use a coin mixer like 99% of other sites that went scam in the past. You can watch there withdraws go out.

Are you lucid ?  The website is installing malware on its users computers there are even screenshots, it is not a legit investment service, another user has just told us that it installed a keylogger on his computer, which will log your username and password for sensitive websites such as your bank, credit card, college, etc.  I believe you may have missed all of that.  On top of that the system pays crap interest and is a ponzi, which is illegal in the United States, operating Ponzi schemes in the United States has landed the operators multiple life sentences without the possibility of parole, it is no joke.  Please be safe .

http://www.sec.gov/answers/ponzi.htm

High investment returns with little or no risk. Every investment carries some degree of risk, and investments yielding higher returns typically involve more risk. Be highly suspicious of any "guaranteed" investment opportunity.
Overly consistent returns. Investment values tend to go up and down over time, especially those offering potentially high returns. Be suspect of an investment that continues to generate regular, positive returns regardless of overall market conditions.
Unregistered investments. Ponzi schemes typically involve investments that have not been registered with the SEC or with state regulators. Registration is important because it provides investors with access to key information about the company's management, products, services, and finances.
Unlicensed sellers. Federal and state securities laws require investment professionals and their firms to be licensed or registered. Most Ponzi schemes involve unlicensed individuals or unregistered firms.
Secretive and/or complex strategies. Avoiding investments you do not understand, or for which you cannot get complete information, is a good rule of thumb.
Issues with paperwork. Do not accept excuses regarding why you cannot review information about an investment in writing. Also, account statement errors and inconsistencies may be signs that funds are not being invested as promised.
Difficulty receiving payments. Be suspicious if you do not receive a payment or have difficulty cashing out your investment. Keep in mind that Ponzi scheme promoters routinely encourage participants to "roll over" investments and sometimes promise returns offering even higher returns on the amount rolled over.

I scanned my system also and found no malware, though, I wouldn't put it past them. They have shown themselves to be nothing but thieves in my dealings. They appear to be pretty inept but that may be part of the con. The fact that they won't acknowledge tweets directed at them or deny serious allegations such as this says all you need to know about their professionalism and implies that they are flying by night, whether or not you think they are running an honest ponzi scheme or a dishonest ponzi scheme.

I DID receive some odd phishing type emails from the Girl Scouts immediately after they stopped replying to my support emails asking for a refund & account closure.

If you have been victimized by zeushash a/k/a/ halleybtc you can file a complaint below. It will take you all of 4 minutes and you can do so without providing personal information

https://denebleo.sec.gov/TCRExternal/disclaimer.xhtml

Should they return my lousy 1 btc I will be donating it to a charity that accepts bitcoin. I don't want any coins at the expense of someone else. If they had simply credited me that to begin instead of ignoring emails to support they surely would have ended up with far more in the longrun.
