Hello friends,

The site http://genesis-hardware.net is selling all BITMAIN products, including Antminer S9, for original price ($1.500). But I can´t google any review, except for this tiny topic here accusing of scam: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2445515.0


So is it really a scam? Does anyone bought anything from them?

I think that's an enough reason to stay away from that obviusly looking scam site  Huh

It also has the same characteristics of the usual poorly made scam sites:

Here's what I've found

  • Your connection is not even secured so all information you enter can easily leak.
  • It's suspicious that their S9 is in stock because as far as I know its out of stock right now
  • They have fake reviews on their site. The site was registered on 2017-10-26 but someone made a review at 20/10/2017
  • Unknown - No reviews are found if you did a simple google search about them
  • Only offers irreversible and pseudonymous payment methods (Bitcoin/Altcoin)

And no wonder that the design is familiar. Visit https://www.genesis-mining.com (Legit site but probably not profitable). They obviously copied its design.
So it's also a phishing link since the design and domain name are identical.

Lastly,
