Let's see,

  • There's no reviews except this: http://bittrust.org/tidbit-store/0 but it doesn't matter as anyone can freely write a review anonymously, not credible.
  • Only bitcoin is accepted, no reversible payment methods were found. Here's the funny part though, at the checkout page--> payment method tab, they're claiming that they are offering an escrow using bit trust even though bit trust is not even providing any escrow service, it's just a site where you can freely post a review not to mention through this we can now assume that they're also the ones who are putting the positive reviews on the link above (bittrust).
  • This is copy pasted: (try searching them per sentence)

    About
    TidbiT is a startup company founded in December 2013 by MIT students to use web based distributed computing to mine bitcoins. The meteoric rise in price has not only attracted bitcoin buyers, but also resulted in a surge of interest in digital currency mining. Because of high demand for cryptocurrency mining equipment, in early December 2017 we decided to start selling bitcoin mining equipment from several manufacturers.
  • They're not the actual tidbit, check the external links: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tidbit

Verdict: Stay away

Don't put your trust too much on scamadviser since you can just pay them to have your site displayed as a "high trust"

Yeah, saw also those "positive" reviews.
Didn't find any info of those here either so i had to ask.
Have seen there products on ebay, but after a day or two they dissapers and then come back after couple of days.
Looks like they put up those sales on ebay and then take it down so people click on their link and want them to buy it from the "store" instead.
Lure the people first on ebay and then take the product down so people go to the fake store and buy there instead?

Edit: Like this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Antminer-S9-14TH-s-Bitcoin-miner-https-tidbit-store/132532022901?hash=item1edb862e75:g:0MUAAOSwGltaokxj
Soon its gone and comes back again. Should report to ebay....

thx mate

Here:

http://bittrust.org/tidbit-store

Some of them are calling the site a SCAM and it looks like those who are saying that they isn't is either a paid schill or part of their team to bring somewhat a credibility because they have been busted for their fraudulent acts.

Misspelling sometimes are a sign that website cannot be trusted. How can a simple spelling mistakes can't be fix? They should have at least proof-read it. Looks unprofessional to me. So I agree with all the verdict here.

It definitely stinks, look at his reviews as a seller they were all "more than a year ago". I'm thinking that it's most likely a bought/hacked account which is not new in ebay.
My veridict still stays the same.

Sounds like some sort of clickbait but have to remove to lure people to their website instead. With all those positive feedback it all sounded like a trap to me, seems there's no a single complaints for whatsoever. I agree that it must have been a paid shill to put a positive feedback to their products. Someone should report them to ebay before they lure more people.

Looks like Tidbit & asicmainers.biz are both toast - as well as their eBay presence.
Thanks to all those who called out these criminals.  Now that his name/address/phone have been made public, it’s just a matter of time for ole’ Henry.  He can run, but he can’t hide.
