For the same reason I'm offering up this other tidbit: http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Card-Reader-Factory/internet/Card-Reader-Factory-cardreaderfactory-cardreaderfactorycom-crs-known-scam-and-snitch-I-1070440

Quote
CardReaderFactory (cardreaderfactory.com) is run by Alexandru Ion Sovu a known SCAMMER from Romania.

His home was raided by police in 2003 and him, his brothers, and business associates were all arrested by the police.

He robbed people and businesses and with cardreaderfactory he's out to ROB and SCAM his old associates as well. There are already other reports on here and all over the internet that he works with police to help arrest people who purchase card readers from there. He's a SCAMMER and a SNITCH!

Their site:
http://www.cardreaderfactory.com/shop/about-us.html

to find:

Linked to:
http://www.creditgate.com/company_information/cardreaderfactory+ltd.aspx

Alexandru Ion Sovu aka international scammer / credit card fraud from Romania. His home was raided in 2003 resulting in his brothers and associates being arrested. Alexandru Ion Sovu was not as he was out of the country at the time:

Card Reader Factory has decided to "expand their business" into Bitcoin mining rigs too. It's pretty obvious why, they weren't getting enough scams from selling card readers so they moved into the next big thing, Bitcoins. They sell low and want to you send them money before they even have the Bitcoin miners made.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=193129.msg2242650#msg2242650

This is where they also confirm cardreaderfactory.com is a SCAM!


BEWARE! If you want to be SCAMMED and LE to come to your door order from cardreaderfactory.com! OTHERWISE ORDER FROM ANYONE ELSE! STAY AWAY

I'll take the credit for finding the above, but it has been addressed before on this forum, but I wasn't aware of it prior.

I ask, because it looks to me like Infinity's facebook, and domain, was created months after the quoted statement began appearing on blackarrow's website.  Not to mention that Infinity's miner looks a lot like KNC's Mars prototype ...

Point being, someone duplicating blackarrow's copy is not an indication of blackarrow's reputation.

Your other tidbit, however, is unsettling...

Meh...

more concerned with getting some chips and making our own miner. As long as the performance numbers match and the chip specs are released then not sure I care what they think the box will look like. If they dealt with the "plagiarism" then fine.

I'm not an illustrater, but i do remember reading somewhere that if you modify a certain percentage of an image, it isn't a rip off, it is fair use. Many illustraters start with an existing image and modify it to fit their purpose. I see nothing wrong with this. You people are crazy. Shocked

Lawdy, you never ran into DMCA, the new & improved copyright law, have you?  It's brutal.  What truly should be fair use, works so transformative there's nothing left of original besides the copyright, or silly fan art by 5-yr-olds -- even those run afoul of "fair use."  RIAA doesn't even except the fact that fair use exists /rant.

So no, that's not fair use.  That's theft.

Isn't blackarrow a proven vendor/manufacturer of Icarus boards?  IIRC the Sovu accusations were brought up before they delivered miners to many paying customers?

Aren't they making some boards for Nov 1 delivery of a Bitfury group buy?


I don't want to be the guy standing between the angry mob and the accused, but this is a total toss up...

They delivered FPGAs on-time in the face of scam accusations.  They're supplying (assembling?) some Bitfury boards in the very near future.  

Besides some conveniently questionable photoshop work, an associate with a sketchy past, and a ripoff report which basically links back to bitcointalk...

They seem to have done what they said they were going to thus far in the BTC realm.  No slack for previous history?

Well I have no issues if they use an OEM case. Saves time and $ on design and they can work on fitting their asic design into a ready-made case.

We've already conducted several transactions with Black Arrow and in good faith they've followed through every time. They have BRILLIANT engineers that work on the efficiency angle of mining as well as a key factor for mining hardware sales, fast FAST shipping. We adopted this principle when we offered free EXPRESS shipping on orders of just 2 or more. We will upload videos of our fully functional boards as solid evidence of their good faith efforts.

Super - sorry to put you in an awkward spot in this thread, but bolster our confidence more, if you will or point me to a separate thread if appropriate - the Black Arrow thread has been quiet of late.

Thanks!

I have been trying to do so- They personally put a significant amount of money and trust in me, and in return they are assembling over 200 16 Chip bitfury boards using their own in house design. I already have pictures of the finished un-mounted PCBs, and should have pictures of the mounted PCBs here soon.
