Warning !! This thread is not to promote the specific site , not even in PMs you will get the link and/or name  Angry

Clicking around , i found here in this forum  a "mine pool" ...

Since it was easy to get it started , filled up a BTC address and instantly
i was "owner" of a free virtual "miner" with fixed daily output of 60,000 satoshis
A nice animation was sending 2 sat every 3 seconds to my Balance

Of course the site's pages are about Paid Upgrades or Referral Bonuses but i kept myself calm  Grin
I let my glorified FREE miner ran for a couple of days and then i tried to withdraw my earnings.

OOPS #1 : Minimum withdrawal is 0.005 BTC  Sad

No big worries i said , i can do it , so my next step was the 9th day with balance of 0.00513857 BTC YAY!!
Told my family with excitement : " We will have lunch today " and clicked the withdraw button...

OOPS #2 : Site says all good ,balance is 0 ,and nothing goes to my wallet...
You may say : WHAT DID YOU EXPECT idiot? there are not free moneyZ in this world !

Chapter TWO : From this point is where the Awesome Scam is setting the real traps.
There is a tab 'Finances' at the bottom of a page and there we see whats next.

2017-07-18 10:25:15    -0.00513857 BTC    Withdraw    (Pending as text and Cancel as clickable option)
OOPS #3 Reading just few lines up ...

Increase your IPV for instant withdrawals, or wait 30+ days until your withdrawal is processed manually.
Your IPV (Instant Payout Value) is Low | What is (IPV? is the only clickable option)

Clicking IPV? i got ...  Grin Grin Grin

IPV allows you to withdraw instantly without waiting days for manual processing.
- Upgrading <site name removed> will greatly increase IPV and make withdrawals process faster.
- IPV increases every time your referrals upgrade their <site name removed>. We strongly recommend to invite referrals.
- You can upgrade to V1.5, this is the highest versions and have infinite IPV. All V1.5 withdrawals are instant.

AFTERMATH
In just 6 lines we have one of worlds finest definition of a Superior Ponzi/Pyramid scheme. Fireworks!!

Quote

Comment , yes we owe you money but please as free player wait until we collect $$ from idiots and RUN.

Comment , besides Ponzi we have strong Pyramid elements so don't forget to invite your friends too

And the FINAL BLOW !

Comment , V1.5 Upgrade cost just 7 BTCs  Huh Huh Huh but you may throw away as little as V1.1 -- 0.01 BTC  Grin

That is all dear readers.
Have a nice day and thank you for reading.

Gets to be really funny, these scammers do things that often I question the age of the owners of these sites

These sites are like bitminerdotio and its clones which you have to upgrade your "miner" to some version/s like mentioned in the OP, and if you don't upgrade then you have to wait for a specific time which is really a waste of time and those idiots still hoping and expecting that they can get those bitcoin there.

Thank you for sharing the unholy strategy which will help others like me not to fall in their sweet trap and waste my time. Though you did not name the website for reasons you know most, but it’s the same technique scammers use everywhere.

Hello there.

The reason i did not post the site link is at first to avoid indirectly promoting it.

BUT i am still checking , a SCAMMER GOD may actually pay my winnings after those 30+ days.
So it may be more dangerous than it looks right now.

Thank you for your reply , have a nice day/life all

Greetings from SUNNY Greece, lucky me  Cool

All ponzies works the same way - they pay old depositors with money from new depositors, there is no product no matter what they say. It's nice thread but this is not something new.
Unfortunately there will always be someone who will believe ponzie scumbags and give them money.

I actually like signing up to ponzi scams to see what people are falling for these days. I have to admit, it does get quite creative (or I am truly outdated!). It also helped me save a friend from losing $20.

There's a few sites that claim to exploit BTC and send it to you for free, because they're Anonymous and want to spread their message. So you go on a site and click a button and an animation shows up, purporting to scan ports for up to an hour before successfully finding an exploit, and sweeping balances to you. Then, when it's all over, they ask you to spend some coins to them to pay the "miner's fee".

It's a fixed amount every time, and if you check the address, people fall for it every few days.

A friend texted me out of the blue some time later asking if I still used Bitcoin and if he could please have a few coins, he'd transfer me some cash. I said sure. He tells me the address and the amount.

I recognised it immediately as it was the same exact amount I recall and told him bro dude, welcome to the Internet. Explained everything and he had his first introduction.
