Being scammed in one way or another seems inevitable, what are the clear indicators that a legit-looking service is actually a big scam of some sorts? Is this forum a good place for info to detect a fraudulent scheme?
Actually the service can go down anytime indeed and while some obvious signs are : stopping the withdrawals from members while appreciating the deposits and everything else. Moreover another sign is the site's admin would try to show as if he is busy and cannot reply. In those cases just don't leave any money in those sites/services.

no one will know when scam is come to us, there are no indicators that can detect scam. if one thing is legit and in one day its going to scam, maybe we can see the sign like in hyip, if the sites is make pending payment then its the sign that sites is going to be scam and i think its happen too with another business so we need to be careful.
There are always some signs to find whether a particular service is gonna go down/scam like when cryptsy got scam they blocked user's withdrawals initially and they were allowing deposits on the contrary.

This forum might help you, whereas you can open discussion about any company if you doubt it, bitcointalk has a wide range of users who are active in most of the earning money areas, in addition you can make your own list of indicators by browsing the history of the companies that scammed their users, because they repeat the same methods, and likely the scammers will open a new business, so they will not stop scamming.

Listing them would really be a long job and its quiet complicated since there are lots of scam websites including to those previous ones i think there are list but i dont remember the site or link which is updated showing possible scam websites.You are right if you do have doubt on a certain company you can always ask in the community and would even heard the best advices and answers regarding on your querie.

It is really hard to detect, the one that I know is the site is registered using a fake identity, and the site offering over high profit then the site will be potential a scammed site, and then the site is asking to deposit without giving the detail how they earning the profit, asking the people in this forum will be a great idea to avoid being scammed

It's not hard to detect wether the site will scam you. You can see if an investment is scam ad they show  when the investment will go, or how will they earn money from it. Ofcourse, if there is no concrete project, investors will just promis to earn, but not the developer itself, then that is scam. Although if at first you get your payout, it'll end up of not releasing the payout, hebce that is how they  scam people. For me, the more the platform is beautiful, the more it's impossible.

There were many history that known persons turned scammers. Hence it cannot be a right criteria.
Moreover how you will check whether a site is registered with legit information unless you are a local resident where that business is registered ? Additionally, many domain registrations allow anonymous registrations for security reasons.

Most of the people put that in the presentation. I guess most of the HyiP which promise you to yield high-interest rates are going to be scammed sooner or later.
Best advice is to check on your own about the site before investing a penny.

Investigating before investing on certain site would really be needed as an investor because we do value our money and we should really be aware on the possible scam sites that might victimized us and would ran off on our money.There are lots of indicators actually and some of it can be notice obviously if you do have commonsense.

Yeah and unfortunately some of us would learn this the hard way. I just lost around 0.7 btc to a scam and boy what a way to learn my lesson. I got too enticed with what they said about earning 150% of your capital in 5days if you invest and guess what, i did accumulate 150% of what i invested but i can't withdraw anything. Lessons learned the hard way.

The one which claims to give you big return in short term is clear indication of them being scam.
Doubler, HYIP and cloud mining services lies under this category.

It is so sad for seeing cloud mining in a list of potential scam services. Because many cloud mining services are coming with similar promises like big returns in very short period of time. But this alone will not be a definite measurement as some services come with all realistic benefits yet with planned scam intention in slow progress.

Every time when you see crowdfunding or collecting of funds within members of an group. one already has idea how to steals. This is nature of humans, mix this opportunity with low moral and you will get answers. Money is magnet for scams!
If you survive, mining pools who don't paying, corrupt exchanges, wallets with backdors, newbie malicious links, fake pumps and dumps..Then you will probably be smart to rethink investing in ICO, IPO,ITO!

Don't invest in easy earn sites or ICO Don't try to invest in that coins that have low market value for you not to be scammed. The only reason why people is being scam is they are trying to earn with easy money. Don't be fooled by that platform because the only way to earn is to work hard like trading. Because that is legit way you will gamble your luck but for professionals they are doing it with strategy so I will suggest that don't invest in easy money platform.

To be perfectly frank there are 2 types of scams, easily noticeable with clear red flags all over

- Unusually high investment returns with little or no risk.
- Unregistered company, no address, no background, fake staff/no staff presented.
- Secretive strategies of making money/lack of transparency.

and second kind - elaborate scams - designed to be amazingly convinced or designed to be fair investment but later turning out to be exit scams.

You can't normally find out about 2nd kind until it is too late.

Most of us do really learn from our past mistakes some may learn from past experience among other which they do have already knowledge on those things and could able to avoid on possible scam sites that do exist today. We do learn that theres no easy money even on online world.

Yes we need to learn from our past mistakes and make that mistake for our experience in future and more careful, if you doubtful about the site or investment you want to join is better to ask another person you trust and reliable in that regard, take his advice as a consideration, and do not always see a big profit but also understand the existing risks.

Being scammed in one way or another seems inevitable, what are the clear indicators that a legit-looking service is actually a big scam of some sorts? Is this forum a good place for info to detect a fraudulent scheme?
Well usually I used http://www.scamadviser.com/ to check the website for risk,
if I want make investing on the website although it is not 100% trues but at least
there are the informations about the website also I always use forum bitcointalk
and for other informations especially the website related bitcoin.
