Obviously! They have an onion link on the page too.Don't recollect original bitmixer having a Tor mirror.
If it is even a genuine service,why would the create a clone and almost rip off the domain name ? Definitely a scam.
Please open a request and add them to the list of scam sites here : (will update once I find that thread )

It's a sad reality that now Bitmixer has left a massive hole behind, scam sites will pop up hoping to benefit from the shut down of the largest mixing service.

I however can't seem to get it to pop up here when searching for bitmixer on Google. It's either related to a certain location, or it has been taken care of by Google already.

Either way, everyone should just report it to Google as this will help in preventing newbies from getting burned due to their lack of knowledge.

Bitmixer the original had one.

Funny how the clone shows two:

TOR mirror: bitmixeru5xqevlf.onion
and the original
TOR mirror: bitmixer2whecjgj.onion

Will Google care about the reportings as its business involved. Since they are promoting their service in Google itself and Google getting revenue from them, its very unlikely that any action will be taken against them, unless there is solid evidence they are resorting to illicit practices.

They did.  You can't really run a large and viable Bitcoin mixing business without having a Tor mirror.

Hilariously enough, some of the scam copies of Bitmixer that I've seen seemed to show the real Tor link, or at least it looked like they did.
Please open a request and add them to the list of scam sites here : (will update once I find that thread )
There's at least ten scam sites for Bitmixer.  Every single possible typo and slight alteration, and they all use the same strategy of advertising with Google until they get banned from doing it.  I'm not sure if adding them all is necessary - a warning should be added somewhere about checking the domain of your site carefully.

Why google are getting revenue from fake mixer? honestly if the site is new they can advertise for free the coupon from seobook that they have already free $100 (coupon) that they can use to advertise their business for free..
Google are not getting any benefits from that site except if they are paying the advertisement credit but as new site they can advertise it for free.

Even prior to the closure of Bitmixer, you can see lots of same related site at the top of Google search when you typed "Bitmixer". That's why back then it was recommended to read properly the site URL before proceeding. I even reported some of them but will just appeared again on another spelling over and over again.

Now that Bitmixer closed their service and hopefully others are aware about it then that kind of scam site will not be entertained now.

I'm sorry, but there is nothing you can do. Bitcoin transactions are irreversible and if you sent your coins to the scammer's address, your coins are gone.

Btw: Bitmixer stopped his services ~4 months ago. You should start using a different (and trusted) mixer.

ChipMixer (check my signature). I already made a post talking about ChipMixer, so I'm just going to quote it here:

ChipMixer is innovative and efficient. As their slogan says: "Mixing reinvented for your privacy"

Take a look:

What makes ChipMixer special?

ChipMixer creates Bitcoin addresses (chips) and funds them with specific sizes. There are chips with 0.001 BTC, 0.002 BTC, 0.004 BTC and so on till 4.096 BTC. When you deposit your Bitcoins, you receive same amount in chips. For example you deposit 0.112 BTC and you receive 0.064 + 0.032 + 0.016. Each chip was funded before your deposit, so there is no link between them and your deposit on blockchain. They are already anonymous. With each chip, you receive its private key, so you can spend them any time you want.
