Nope, he is not on my spreadsheet where I usually list those that i've banned... Probably there's a deeper reason than referral link...

Do you have ability to see who has issued the ban?

It seems that you were banned due to this post, where the link is either a phishing link or was considered referral spam.

The only provider currently with cards, that i know of is [url=https://wirex.test-app.link/izr6oIYSNB?action=affiliate-register&code=KL3RpBasa0yP5Vk6b_ZuSg]Wirex[/url]. They have some kind of waiting list, but the cards are "free" as you only pay upon card load. Plastic cards will be coming soon.

They do however require identity verification, because of Visa.

Can someone figure out what the deal is with that link?

Hmm, very weird. I copy pasted it straight out of the app, but do not remember such a domain on my link.
However it still redirects to wirexapp.com domain, if you try to access it. Looks like it reads to a company called Branch, which seems to be some kind of website which provides link redirecting or something similar. This is the website: https://branch.io/

Here is the Whois data of the owner: https://www.whois.com/whois/test-app.link

This is not phishing, although i gotta admit that it looks like such.

Edit: It seems like branch.io is used for deep linking and is a very reputable company.

Edit2: They even have a wikipedia page here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Branch_Metrics

4. No referral code (ref link) spam. [1]

As far as I can tell the interpretation of spam here is generally that you should not post any referral links. The punishment seems harsh though, I think mostly the posts just get deleted unless someone keeps doing it.
I've had a few of my posts deleted for referral links when I was a Newbie. I wasn't banned for it, and I stopped posting them.

It seems that you were banned due to this post, where the link is either a phishing link or was considered referral spam.

It asks for my Google login, then continues to https://uat.wirexapp.com/#
I'm not familiar with Wirex, but wirexapp.com seems to be their official site.

Yes. I am a fucking cunt, and i love being a one.
But unless you have something useful for the thread, the door is right there as no one gets banned for being a "cunt".

People don't normally get permabanned for one instance of ref spam - usually it's just deleted or you'll get a short temp ban if you keep doing it but perma bans are usually issued for people spreading malicious links which is obviously what they thought this one is and I can see why because it certainly does look fishy. I would say it's better to be safe than sorry in circumstances like this because any cases of mistaken bans can always be revoked which I'm sure this one will be if everything checks out.

It seems that you were banned due to this post, where the link is either a phishing link or was considered referral spam.

Now I think you are being a bit of a cunt Cheesy. I can't speak on theymos' behalf on whether he will give you a refund or not, but if you hadn't of broken the rules in the first place by posting a ref link this wouldn't have happened. You could have just used a proxy or different connection to sign up to avoid paying the fee.

Not true. I tried with three different IP's and they were all blacklisted by the moderator who did ban me. I went even to three different locations.

I know mods talked about the reason for the ban but perhaps one of the reasons was selling verified accounts.

No... I sold few of my own accounts, which i have made personally. Afaik there is no rules against that, also selling verified cryptoexchange accounts does not include trust whatsoever.

https://wirex.test-app.link/izr6oIYSNB?action=affiliate-register&code=KL3RpBasa0yP5Vk6b_ZuSg <~~ semi suspicious link

Can someone figure out what the deal is with that link?
I googled the domain “test-app.link” and it looks like this might be something that directs users to open a link directly in an app on their phone instead of in their browser.

When I directed my browser to that link, it went to a page with a button that said “get the app” which sends me to the apple App Store, specifically a link to download the wirex bitcoin wallet. On the page on my browser, there is also a message that says I will see the content after downloading the app.

Edit: I download the wirex app, signed up and was able to obtain the following referral link,
https://links.wirexapp.com/MpmB/4bTIQcutbK?action=affiliate-register&code=NVyN0jdZy0W6YFsE1dCviQ

Based on the above, I would conclude the link he posted to be a referral link. I would recommend not permanently banning the OP if this is the only instance of referral spam. A warning would probably be most appropriate, but at worst a 3 day ban would be in order (both assuming this is the only instance).

Edit2: I don’t particularly like wirex and have removed the app from my phone, however it is not explicitly malicious to the extent you can trust apple and their ability to perform their due diligence

Do you think I am spamming? If so, you are probably wrong.

Thanks for your review of the link Quickseller. Although i did not know that such referral links are untolerated here (which im guilty of posting), i have no intention of phishing anyone at some point wirex had that kind of referral link, which no has changed to the format which you posted for me as well.

I was the one that issued the ban. Since I've encountered similar links (both in structure and length) with several other serial phishers and googling Wirex popped up normal links, I assumed it was a phishing link. If that's not the case, my mistake, I should've looked into it deeper. I'm going to wait for theymos' judgement on that though.

If my ban gets revoked, i assume that i will get a refund of the 0.12mBTC which i paid to post this appeal Roll Eyes
If theymos confirms you're in the clear and confirms that you paid said amount to remove a proxy ban, I'll refund you the payment (fee included) out of my own pocket.

you can trust apple and their ability to perform their due diligence

Is there a way to know if wirex is storing private keys on their own servers or keys are stored on your phone? if they are saving your private keys to have access to your funds later, nobody should ever use that app. if that link which got OP's other account to get banned is not asking for anything other than downloading an application then there is no phishing here.

@OP. you should put ref links in your signature. and shame on you if you are going to ask for a refund for a few satoshi.

EDIT: disclaimer: I'm not acting as if I am admin or have any position in this forum. above statement is my own opinion.
