 Well, they claim "All of our products are 100% New & Factory Sealed" but this doesn't make sense really because they sell some pretty old models.  That in itself might not be so obvious but this -




 Is laughable.

The Kogyo Miner 8 is actually a server power supply (looks like the DPS-1200FB-1 by HP ) rather than a miner.

The Kogyo Miner 9 appears to be a 21 Bitcoin computer which is certainly not a miner.

and

The Kogyo Miner 7 looks like (more than likely is) a Butterfly Labs Jalapeno which came in 5-10 GH/s mining rates - not even close to the stated 3.5 TH/s

 I can confidently say SCAM

First of all, I suggest the OP re-titles this thread as SCAM!
The gear they show is -- priceless...

is most definitely a pic of the BFL 10GHs Jala. I still have 2x of them purchased Feb. 2014 for about $400 each. If one can still find more of the chips in them the board can be stuffed with enough to push 30GHs @ around 150w... Pretty laughable...


Appears to be a RasPi board with <unknown Miracle Miner> in front. 10.5Ts eh?

Hell, if the OP want's fireworks, um, point Gleb at them....

I wish people would actually try at scamming instead of pulling up random images of "Bitcoin miner" on google and putting them in a webpage store. Of course if they tried people would fall for the scams, but hey, at least we don't get these pathetic attempts at scamming from people who don't know how to start cgminer.

 I rather cringe about publicly bring this up but, is a two-edged sword I guess.  Undecided

Especially in seeing such a poorly constructed website one has to ask: Is there an ulterior motive to bringing in visitors?

In light of the WannaCry worm, even though so far it can only hit XP systems I must STRONGLY SUGGEST that when visiting scam or possible scam sites:
A) Close your browser and reopen it in Private Mode. Be sure that your Private Mode does not allow saving data/cookies/anything!
B) TURN OFF all Java/Active-X functions
C) TURN OFF Flash
D) TURN OFF all animation

When done of course clear all History's, cookies, etc. before closing the Private browser.
Um, also bite the bullet and lose XP and perhaps also use either Chrome or Opera when visiting questionable sites.

So far all initial infections have been on XP systems that visited a hacked website. As part of the 'normal' website activities allowed by XP and Active-X, the worm was let in.
