I got a request from minifrij that he is no longer able to update the post because he is not that active so I'm making another thread instead.

Notice:
I have removed any obvious ponzi sites (E.G "Double your bitcoins in 2 days") from the list and they will not be added; everyone should already know to avoid these and adding them will only unnecessarily inflate this list. Faucets will also not be added to this list.


When reporting, follow this format:

Code:
[B] URL:[/B]  site_url
[B]Scam Accusation:[/B]

The URL shouldn't contain https/http, only the [domain_name].[extension]. The scam accusations should follow the proper format found in the sticky thread in the scam accusation section (If the reference is coming from bitcointalk).

Only the title should be in bold. (URL, Scam accusation), everything else should be written in normal and please remove the www. I clearly mentioned It should be domain_name.extension.
The scam accusation should be a thread on bitcointalk at least with the proper format. I can't simply add services as scam simply because you said so, I need proof.

FinalHash should be on the list: http://finalhash.com/


If you need any more proof than that (which there is plenty), then lock this thread and find some other subject matter to pursue.

What do you mean by "a proof more then that"? The picture pretty much contains a list of their clients and I don't know any of them except for Cryptsy. I will search to find more proof, but If you could post more, I'd really appreciate it. If you could also remove the http from the link, that will only give them more backlinks and a better SEO.

LMAO!!!

Dude, all those entities depicted ripped off their user base to the tune of tens of millions of dollars. But you go right ahead and do some research.

Oh, and research Foxminers while you're at it.

And, in your spare time, periodically scroll this Scam section for other candidates to add to your list.

Hello,


bitcnation.com



This ia phising website scam.

Prices are way under market to lure buyers to enter their sensitive personal information..

It actually says: Copyright 2017 Coinmama to inspire a false sense of confidence (a google search for coinmama + bitcnation.com gives nothing, and I am sure coinmama would have made some kind of announcement about it if it was their site)

They ask you to enter sensitive information like credit-card number, scan of passport or ID document, address etc, plus your bitcoin address. These details can easily be used to commit fraud!



Please add this site to the list.

..:: Just another day in paradise... ::..

Scam Site : http://metrobitcoinminer.com/

I orderer 'x' times the same Antminer L1.
Each time i paid with paypal and each time i was refunded or the order was cancelled, except the last time.
Each time i paid, it was a different seller name on the paypal board..
Each time they cancelled, they explain that they cannot retrieve the funds from paypal...
During this, they answers mails, questions and anything you want.

The last time, the order was "shipped" and ok.. I wait about 1.5 month...  and nothing.
They don't answer anymore on mail or on their contact support page.

I open an incident with paypal and i retrieve my funds 1 week later.
Hell on them !

Maybe you can add some sites from this list: Online gambling scams!

I call all Curacao based sites on this list Curacao licensing scam operators | Please add all gaming sites here! as a scam! But not because they have no valid license but because they false and misleading claim to have a license and also confiscate account balances and winnings based on non existing regulations they have to follow! Let you deposit without KYC but when you want to withdraw then suddenly KYC is required based on fantasy regulations. Roll Eyes

Nice and thank you sir this will help us to stay away from these sites because they served grave danger to our accounts and those cheap tricks of them that absolutely looks suspicious should be stop because their one the reasons government are still wary to accept bitcoins  andother alternative  coins because they are causing harm to the users and stealing away those hard earned bitcoin.

ponzis , hyips , cloudmining ...etc shouldn't be here , there won't be enough space for these sites cause there are hundreds launching everyday
I keep seeing some accusations here about such sites but an obvious scam doesn't need a thread here , I remember some guy was asking the community here to help him cause he lost money in a site that gives like 150% a day  Cheesy

It might be better to use a whitelist since 99.9% of this stuff is a scam.  We need a thread like Valued Vendors  Roll Eyes

Then. We should have to generalize that thing. All certain schemes should be then automatically be part of that list. Regardless of the site's business name as long as it would fall to HYIP,CLOUD MININg and Doublers. Cause if we will not include that quote, other users may think that this site is still ok since it is not on the list even if it falls to that certain category listed above.
