so i found this thread just now https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2180743.0

and i guess this site is scam for sure

So i registered in that site and uploaded my documents to get verified but its been 3 days they haven't verified my account so i thought this site is sketchy af and then yesterday i transferred 12,000 INR worth bitcoins (from bitcoin-india.org )  to my Unocoin wallet and it asked me to confirm it via the email and so i did and it said "Confirmed"

Checked my Unocoin wallet and voilla!! nothing there so i thought its gonna take a while .. and then after few hours i checked again and same .. nothing received yet.. then i wanted to find the "SHA hash" transaction link but i couldn't find it in bitcoin-india.org because they don't provide it .. all i can see is the Reference Number but i cant track the transaction using that shit...

so back to real time its been 24 hours and i have sent support tickets to their email and whatsapp (online 24/7) but no response .... this sucks usually btc transaction takes ~10 mins to get 1 confirmation so i guess this is total fraud site.

Any suggestion guys? should i go for legal action ?

First of all calm down , You don't need reference no. But as far your described here you were sending to your Unocoin wallet right ? then just go to blockchain.info and put your Unocoin Receiving address and see if any BTC coming to that address or not , if its coming then it will show there as Unconfirmed or Confirmed whatever the status are .

Yes op. If it's an well organized one they will step out with prior notice. You can see the case of Nova exchange.
When other Indian exchanges can handle it properly , they should have also done something.
No legal exchange will close it's service when BTC is in such a roll.

 Sad Lakhs of rupees, can't believe, I have been so foolish about it. I got three other friends to it, one of them withdrew partially about 5lakhs and it was immediately depoisted the same day just a few days ago.

The guy who owns this sykam reddy is also active on FB, I just hope its a case of accounts being frozen by IT or something like that Sad

Dear All,

Even my 7 Lakhs are siphoned off by these guys. I made a withdrawal transaction of 5 Lakh on 9th December and they only transferred 2 Lakhs and for balance 3 Lakhs I have mailed them severally and also sent messages on whatsapp but no one is reverting. Then I spoke to one of their staff, he asked me for email id and phone number and in next 5 minutes my another 3.80 Lakh worth of bitcoins were transferred to some unknown account. I spoke to the Director Sykam Reddy too and he said customer care is working on it please give them some time.

Now they have shut down the website and app on pretext of Income Tax raids.

I am going to visit there office on Monday 18th Dec and I have also spoken to my contacts in Hyderabad who said if they dont pay your money and bitcoin back, go to local police station to lodge FIR against the company and he will get it registered through hi contacts in CID Andhra Pradesh.

If anyone of you want to join me in this fight, you are most welcome, please connect with me on my mobile/whatsapp number 09958882727.

Please note down the numbers of staff and Directors.

The notice does seem to be like they have scammed us all. I was thinking to invest in this shit site but fortunately I didn't. Their notice is not at all professional. First of all they don't even know the past tense of "raid" . The IT department did conduct a raid on the top Indian exchanges but that didn't make them close their exchanges. The popular Indian exchange Zebpay is till functioning flawlessly without any issues. I think bitcoin-india has used this news to get away with the scam. I feel sorry for the people who had invested in it. I am myself from India and feel pity that they are doing this to their own people.

Not sure about the other stuff, but seeing that name Sykam got me checking my mails as that name sounded familiar.
Few years back, he had mailed me stating that the Bitcoin India Facebook page, where I am the owner, belonged to him as he had applied for a copyright on the word Bitcoin India after I had started the page.

I replied that I had checked with my lawyer and was assured that he can take over the page with just around 200 users back then for about 150K USD..  Roll Eyes
He did not reply after that Cheesy

Yes that's what happened i am sure , they just took advantage of this IT Raid news and ran away with scam .

Edit : They posted new message now , i guess their fleeing staffs came back now and working on IT Part which i am quite shocked they didn't have , Now they also warned to their customers who didn't file ITR .

We are working on our companies Income Tax part, will resume our services once it is clear in couple of days. Also if any of the "Bitcoin India" users has not file their ITR yet, please start working on your individual Tax filings; thank you!

Please come back soon; Thank you.


There is two outcome of this change of message ,

1 > they truly working or some serious issue they faced probably by IT Raid

2> They just want to get some time to flee totally and halt customers by saying this new message , so they don't file FIR against them  [ Which is highly likely ] and they get proper time to pack their bags .

I have some information to add here. I traded with SREEMANNARAYANA REDDY SYKAM, aka Sykam Ramakrishna Reddy, aka Bitcoin-India long time back and here's the instance;





The trade volume was 2 lakhs. Luckily, I used LBC and he couldn't scam me there. Here are some of his details if that might help you further:

1. His profile on LBC: https://localbitcoins.com/p/Bitcoin-India

2. His contact number where he mostly remains active during LBC trades: +918680009649

3. His LinkedIn profile profile: https://in.linkedin.com/in/sykamsreemannarayanareddy (Someone archive this link for future reference. Seems like LinkedIn doesn't allow web archives.)

4. His twitter profile: https://twitter.com/ActorSykam (Archived version: http://archive.is/FbZY1)

5. His Facebook profile: https://www.facebook.com/sykamramakrishna.reddy.3  https://www.facebook.com/Bitcoin.India.Org  https://www.facebook.com/SYKAMGarage  https://www.facebook.com/SykamConsultancyServices  https://www.facebook.com/Sykam-Masthan-Reddy-Knowledge-City-1695710240676395  https://www.facebook.com/SykamRamakrishnaReddyPolitician (and many more... not listing them all to prevent cluttering)  (Archived version: http://archive.is/qcIlF)





6. Finally his pictures:





These scoundrels need to be publicly shamed! These are the species whose action implies a bad impact to the community.

To all those who got scammed: Prosecute this guy to the fullest extent of the law.

I’ve been using the site since quite a while now. Recently there were glitches which are solved now. Everything working smooth on my account.

But, I do agree that their customer support is just Pathetic. Who uses Whatsapp for chat support?

Can someone explain how exactly they got scammed?
