I've received some spam pointing at that site that promise good interest rates to just deposit bitcoins to them.
The "about us" page is filled with the original template page (i.e.: nothing relevant to them).

It smells SCAM to me, anybody has experiences?

i guess 99.99% of "high yield investment programs" are scams, but this subforum specifically i think is for accusations with proof. good luck with that!

They probably used the hacked mtgox database, and yes, they are scam.

Got two of them as well.

The spam comes from their own server! (lb2.btchyip.com, 184.22.178.46)
Hosted by whoever owns hostnoc.net (seems to be US-based)

Sounds like this might warrant a takedown of their hosting space... Who wants to contact the hoster? Tongue

Received three spam emails from btchyip.com so far today.  The grammar used is a bit poor.  Nothing yells SCAM harder than a poorly written email promising you instant riches.  If the offer is so damn good, why doesn't the sender keep quiet and use it themselves? :-)

postmaster@lb2.btchyip.com
client-ip=184.22.178.46

Sender is claiming a 'from' address of MtGox@mtgox.com.  Yeah, sure :-)
