There is a site that tells users that they can generate bitcoins for you yes same info minimum options is for 0.1 bitcoins and they will show an blockchain record but its just a spam record from 1 wallet to another one.Then after they sent the blockchain record which is not directing to your wallet they will demand for a miners fee they call and then thats the time you will be scammed

If you've spent even five minutes on this forum, you'll realize that people think it's totally fine to murder the English language and that no one cares.  I do, and my ignore list is extensive.   But this is a shit scam none the less,  one which I do hope no one falls for. 

Russians?   Probably.   Not that it would stop criminals,  but isn't bitcoin illegal in Russia?

Lol it's just funny because of course a famous bitcoiners gets this email. What kind of idiot would send this to you and hope to actually get anything out of it!? Horrible writing, I barely even understand the concept of how you would get scammed. Basically, to prove you're a human send us money. Bitcoins aren't captchas hahaha. What a fail.

I am not much surprised because there are many newbies who fall for such poor scam attempts. Pure greed makes them put their money in such scams and it results in losing their money.
I don't think we can deal them one by one as a script could be refurbished infinity times so making newbies aware is the only effective solution to counter such attempts.

Well I could've donated them as a charity act only if I could understand what they're saying you know? since bitcoin is totally a new thing in the world sometimes people get confused and think such ponzi or obvious scams are normal/natural in crypto.
I know because I have experience since I used to send bitcoins to that stupid bitcoin factory game like mining scam.

I am not much surprised about this type of email  , it is because I already got  many emails from the nom-blockchain email address for Investment of the bitcoin . But the email of sender was noreply@blockchain.lnfo here in info "i" is replaced by "l" and no one can see this carefully .
So here everyone just make himself away and don't take attention at such types of emails , Because these type of Scammers have no work than scamm .

Am I spamming? Report me!

No, bitcoin is not illegal in Russia, in fact, it might be fully legalized soon, in similar manner Japan made BTC a legal tender.
Even if it was illegal that would never stop Russians from using it., Russia is not known for very strong governance anyway.
Please don't generalize about Russians being scammers and, for that matter, any other nation.
I admit - Russians are annoying sometimes, but we have no idea who is behind this stupid scam attempt.

Recently saw two websites with same landing page and all information. Can't find even a single difference in the two. A small change in the URL is the only thing that makes a difference. By mistake if you enter the fake website user loses all his data related to the personal data.

That email is quite funny and indeed a worst scam ever attempted. Obviously, it came from a non-English person who is trying his best to speak well just to be able to fool an innocent victim. Newbies are their targets and by the way i look at it scammers can still victimized some victims from time to time. I am not saying that there is something wrong if one can't speak the English well because there are many sincere people and intelligent one at that but can't just express thru better English.

By just looking at the writings it was full of grammatical errors and was a mess. By just reading it I can tell that the site is useless and trash. If they cannot even pay for a good writer then how much more can they pay their clients. Using simple logic we can tell that it is a scam and if you are still convinced by it and invest then you are a complete idiot.

There's a different way to steal your coins. And that was an example. We could be fooled in many ways.  We need to be vigilant and wise in all our actions before its too late.

AHhaha, this is just a scammer who did not have a good enough way of doing fraud. Because this is not something that gives an advantage to you, for there is no more beneficial to those who did not yet know each other unless such person has a company. So, the great advantage is not from what you read but it comes from what you do on it to generate profits (Skill). If you have a skill that is good then you will always get the profit

Yeah, really poor scam attempt. But I see tons of similar atempts to scam everyday. Bitcoin related Facebook groups is full scammers. And there are too many naive people, especially newbies, who can believe that's legit and they may send money to scammers. And now scammers become lazy, because these attempts to scam looks very diletant.

It always seems that scammers are some of the first to try to take advantage of new technology. Scams like this add to the weeds of blockchain technology that new people have to work through. It sucks...

I think people who know the least bit about Bitcoin would not fall into such a silly blow. And it seems that my thinking is right, since if the person who created this scam depends on it, it is starving.
