Excellent review and investigation
Can you say something similar about the company UFOMINERS?
from Las Vegas? Are they scam or not? Since he contacted them and paid 20 BTC for the equipment. Track code dosih has not yet been received on the parcel, and the company itself once a week reports that it will be soon and the parcel will be at the customs in my country, and so it's almost a month instead of the promised 5 days.
There is a feeling that FOXMINERS is the reincarnation of the previous UFOMINERS because the subject matter of the sites is very similar.  It remains to only verify the number of purses for payment in the blockchain BTC.
Thank you for attention.
 Cool

UFOMINERS was a scam from day one.

In California it's a common practice for the locals to express $30,000 as 30.000 USD.  Roll Eyes My guess is that Jonathan partook too much of his medical marijuana when he penned the reply, hence littered with grammatical errors.

There's definitely THC involved.

Part 1 of a scam is collecting the money

Part 2 is designing the system and covering your tracks to make sure no legal authorities can find you afterwards

Guess we'll see how good they are at part 2 over the next few years

People are just too greedy for a quick buck and will pay off scammers. If it didn't work at least some of the time they wouldn't do it

So Bitcoinist.com decided to do an interview with that fraudster. According to some inside info this is what he said about me:

"Bitcoinist: What is your reaction to articles such as this one from The Merkle which claims "nothing about Foxminers is adding up" and that the company is "offering miners that are seemingly too goo to be true"?

EB: We have reasons to believe that TheMerkle take funds from one of our competitors to use defamation words against us, also we have some information that they paid reviews and forum users to do the same and we will drop them on public soon.

They claim to visit our headquarter in Los Gatos which is a lie, nobody visit us from TheMerkle, but they prefer to visit Brenda home address and verbally abuse her, she said that they act like mobs forcing and hitting the door, screaming "scammers", Brenda ask them who are they and they said "you think a C&D latter will stop us from take off your mask, you don't know who you deal with”.

She desperately call us and claim help, she thought someone trying to hurt her and she was crying on the call, we told her to call police and to stay inside and keep the door closed we are on the way.

Of course she call police but before they arrive to her address this abusers were left, Brenda said she don't know exactly how many they were, as she was terrified by their actions, but she heard 3 different voices 2 male and 1 female.

If they were so professional as they claim, they should take a camera and film the "interview" with Brenda which they claim they had, if not camera then record with cellphone or anything similar, but no, it's easier to claim things with presumption that people will believe what they said on article anyway.

They also used this technique against cointelegraph and cryptocoinnews accusing them of "scam their own readers", basically if they got paid why not to destroy their own competitors too!
I try to understand why they had that behavior, we drop it on marketing and  bad-advertising which is so often on business world, but they take it to a different level.
Shall i remind you of Panda Miners?
They had the same attitude against them, and finally after a while they prove to be legit"




I already filed a police report regarding this and also filed an ic3 report. Remember that this guy has already pretended to be a lawyer, and also a content marketer. If Bitcoinist publishes that interview then they are deliberately trying to defame myself and themerkle, I will have to get lawyers involved.

Report submitted along with the full email header where he pretended to be a lawyer. That in and of itself irrefutable evidence of IMPERSONATION FRAUD, a Felony in California.

I urge you to submit a report as well as that will get their site taken down faster.

Wait a second. If you call this number: 408-877-8345 (which is their support number supposedly)

Listen to the voicemail it says UFOminers.com!!! He didn't even change the voicemail to foxminers but left it at ufominers. We are dealing with a serial scammer here guys.

Quick aside, themerkle. Would you be interested in penning an article on your mag detailing BitPay operating as an exchange in spite of only having a license to operate as a third-party payment provider?

I've spoken with Bitcoinist and me thinking they were going to tarnish my reputation like that was a misunderstanding. I should have known they wouldn't post libel about us. I also shouldn't have posted this interview on this forum as I had no permission to do so. It is too late now but I just wanted to get it out there that Bitcoinist did nothing wrong.

Love the last 2 lines in the "interview":
Quote

And how did Panda, not to mention eBang and Hotmine resolve peoples suspicions? They accepted known reputable peoples offers to do a review of the equipment plus started their campaigns by demonstrating the gear at tradeshows. Ya know? Real hands-on proof.

As a business plan, blitzing the media without a single shred of physical evidence of their Miraculous Mining gear ever existing (much less being possible with foreseeable tech looking out a few years) is just plain stupid -- or of course the blatant proof of a scam in-progress.

Here on this front is a "national sport!" To mark everything that is new for fraud.
Many things that were labeled as frauds were true ... eg, Baikal miners and the like.
Do not let all vendors hang in one sack1
I know I can find a cheat, but why do everybody accuse me of being a scammer Huh

For a start, aside from the very obvious plagiarism of SFARADS SF3301 data sheet dated Feb 11 2015 there is the issue of no one EVER seeing that equipment in real life. Not seen at trade shows, no reputable people giving reviews, no evidence from pools showing SUSTAINED hash rate at real-world difficulties, etc.

Just as with Baikal, eBang, Hotmine and Panda, folks here will be more than happy to retract SCAM statements and in fact endorse the product WHEN THEY PROVE THEIR CLAIMS.

edit: @ jimbo, then why did you say "but why do everybody accuse me of being a scammer"?
edit edit: removed associations between jimbo and Foxminers. Translation error

Fuck the subject matter! Call FoxMiners number and listen to the voicemail, introducing themselves as UfoMiners.

That, and why would FoxMiners have UfoMiners pics on its servers?
