So I got suckered by the numbers and promise of free shipping on http://www.asic-technologies.com/ and didn't do due diligence to find out whether the company was legit.

here is blockchain of payment

ANyone know if I got ANY chance of making that BTC back somehow?

:-(

Ouch that makes it hurt even more, but you're right I guess...should have done my homework. There should be a scam board added to the top of bitcointalk...

ASIC miner with Audio ports. LOL  Grin Grin
I can't believe people fall for this.
Nonetheless, there is 0 chance to get your money back.

You can get your money back, but it would involve finding out where they are, a few friends, and several shotguns.

At this point, stealing the money back from them would not REALLY be a crime, seeing as how they have lied and stolen more and they did it first.

I looked at this and thought they were using a commercially available case, and didn't expect the audio and usb to be connected. Didn't buy for other reasons.

Ouch, I don't think there is any hope you'll get any of your BTC back or the actual goods. You would be better off taking this as a hard lesson learned and never jumping into investments before checking out their background.
