This is a very new bitcoins investment website. There is no post about it in here, so I post it.

Are these types of investment websites scam?

Did anyone heard or know about whether these websites are scam?

It's called a HYIP, or a ponzi. Daily profit 10%? Impossible, there would only be rich people if this were possible.

Looks interesting but then so does a t-bone steak on the grill in the middle of a pack of lions. Do you go for it or leave it be?

The typos all over the website is a big red flag too. http://growcoins.com/faq2.php "Which e-currencie do you accept? We accept : BitCoint`s."

I gave it a try just to see, I can afford to lose 0.1BTC.
I googled for growcoins.com just to see what people are saying, and found this thread.

The 15 days should be up in a week, place your bets now on if I'll actually be able to get the coins out. Smiley
I'll report here how it goes. Though maybe they actually pay out on the small investments, to gain confidence.
I'll reply here on if I get paid or not, so at least there will be some evidence one way or the other. Though I could easily be a shill, so stay skeptical regardless. Smiley
I clicked "contact us" and asked them to post here, since on the off chance they actually aren't a scam, they can explain how the heck they're able to pay out so much.

Well I invested .1 btc 18 days ago and the investment matured up to 10 days old and has been hung there for 8 days. Sent an email over 24 hrs. ago and still no response. I sent another email earlier and am waiting to hear back. Do Not Invest. I was your guinea pig and it don't look good.

I lost 0.1BTC on it, but I knew it was high risk of being a scam. Whatever we paid, consider that fee for learning a lesson about a type of ponzi scheme called HYIP.
