I have ordered miner, cost 2199USD. Unfortunately I paid.
I canceled the order, of course they answered that they return me money, but it was last message from them.
Now they not answer  for may emails.

The bank account details which I recived from them is:
    Account Name: NH Equipment Ltd.
    Account Number: 13029859
    Sort Code: 20-52-74
    Bank Name: BARCLAYS BANK PLC
    IBAN: GB93 BARC 2052 7413 0298 59
    BIC: BARCGB21 (*some countries requires 11-digit Swift Code. In this case please use BARCGB22XXX)


But from the previouse post in this topic you can notice different account number/id.
Janis Construction Ltd.
IBAN: GB93 BARC 2095 6100 6377 34
BIC/Swift code: BARCGB22
Bank Name: BARCLAYS BANK PLC
Branch address: 46A Ballards Lane, Finchley, London, N3 2BB, United Kingdom

On the web page you can check informations about this fake companies. Of course this is scam.
http://www.companiesintheuk.co.uk/ltd/nh-equipment
http://www.companiesintheuk.co.uk/ltd/janis-construction


They are definitely scammers.

I lost  2199USD. I plan to report it on the police.

So are there any legitimate mining contract companies?

Yes groupbitcoin.com

I happen to know it's genuine because I run it !

Well you look good but how do I know you're not just another scammer?
Does anyone else from this site have a good word to say about you?
If they do and when I get another BTC, I'll probably give you a go so thanks
I think


Well we started in November as a group buy for some equipment, we have lots of happy members it's a bit sad really that people only seem to get mentioned on here for doing bad stuff, for ripping people off. Haven't seen anyone talk about us much and we've got quite a lot of members now we're on cloudminingreviews.com but not much else.

Really horrible to see people STILL getting scammed by Bitcominers I first heard about them from someone on our live chat trying to get me to order from their website in broken English?! then a few of our customers told me they'd been ripped off.

Any scams will normally be mentioned somewhere on here, shame people don't check out the forums before they buy, surely if they accepted Bank Transfers to a UK account for a while the police will catch up with them ? Surely It's pretty hard to run a fake Barclays account ?!

From personal experience you have to provide a lot of info! to open a Barclays business account. I would strongly suggest you contact Barclays ASAP in the morning explain exactly what happened maybe send a link to this thread, they should hopefully freeze these accounts while they investigate it and you might even recover some of the frozen funds if they've taken loads of orders there should be lots of money which is hard to move especially if its a new account you can't exactly take it all out in cash.

I'm certain if someone calls Barclays that has been scammed tomorrow and explain whats happened they will limit those two mentioned accounts and investigate the business.

There's not a great deal you can do if you've sent them Bitcoin, If you have their Bank details contact the bank they're with ASAP and hope the Police catch up with them before all the monies gone. $3000 is a lot of money but it would never buy 1.1TH/s cloud mining for a long long time.

Yea.. I got owned for USD 70. I tested the waters first (it looked too good to be true). I thought what the hell.. let's rip Cheesy

I would never give a unknown company with no track record more than that (70 was too much in any case).

Supposedly pay out is 30 days after contract was activated, so in 5 days time I'm suppose to get payment. I'm not getting my hopes up, but lets see.


But I see a scammers paradise with bitcoin mining. You can make insane amount of bitcoin with little repucation.  Post a few group buys or just fake website, decent prices and voila. Easy bitcoins.


edit: Reading about the change in banking details (or not accepting all of a sudden) tells me it's 100% scam.

Me and my friends made an order together for 650ghs on 11.january, so first bitcoins should arrived to my wallet next week Smiley

I changed some emails with "BRIAN", and he was quite polite and english was also pretty good.
I asked him, why they keep coins so long, why they dont offer at least a weekly pay out, but his answers were diplomatic.
The price per ghs was extremely good - i was thinking, that the reason for that is, they have a possibility to sell them via MtGox for very good prices and then buy another via bitstamp or so + if they manufacture the HW, the cost of machines are much lower, than BFL or KNC.. I dont know why i was so greedy and stupid..

After 2weeks, my good friend called me - Hey they changed their contracts, 1ths+ contract have wekkly pay out scheme, WE HAVE TO order one..
I was very surprised and lucky, but i had also bad feel from ordering another power from them  -especially when we didnt received coins from first contract..
Unfortunatlly, after few days, i agreed with his proposal and ordered another 1ths contract for 2250usd -- 50/50 Me/friend. I paid in BTC of course..

Now, i found this topic.. :-/

+ i lost 1.49btc, which i sent from my Multibit wallet to another personal wallet, so hell yeah - good days for me in bitcoin field :-/.

Btw - let these mothf----- down!

So, there is no way to get your money back now? To bad this scammers can get away with all of it..
I see now their facebook page and twitter account are gone.. I was logged in when it happened and
i saw they changed their facebook account to qwe*** something, i did not see it all thou i was in a
hurry reading this scam-rapport..
I was really looking forward to get in to cloud mining, but now all my invest are gone..  Sad guess we
need to learn the hard way..
If any has some tips to some nice mining contracts i´m all ears.

And also, i´m a little bit confused about the thread starter, screaming scam but the user itself has a
-4 in trust.. Can we trust him/her?

Sure, everybody´s assuming scam, they don´t deliver and the whole "to good to be truth" thing going
on, but i still think it is so confusing nobody has anything to complain until now, what happened to all
the ones ordering from them? Why haven´t we heard anything until now recently?

Where they good until one point or scammers all the way?

Guys, rly.

Why did u actually sent BTC or real money to them? Don't u think it's strange, that this page is selling 2TH/s miners much lower and "in stock" compared to other "real" companies telling they will send them out on march/april this year?

That page is claming to sell bitmine.ch miners. So i emailed bitcmine.ch support, asking if they know that shop and if they are cooperating with it.
Here is the answer i got:

Quote
Dear XYZ,
It has come to our attention the last month this site that claims to sell our miners.
I can assure you that we have no partnership with them,no communication at all and if in any case you proceed on buying from them I cannot guarantee you the quality of the product that you will receive and when that will be shipped to you.

I hope this is helpfull for someone.

Dear Forum,

I am wictim of that website, too.
I ordered totally 50GH/s bitcoin mining for 3 months at January, 22, 2014.
I wait to my order will be processed. They said that it is processing.

Today is 5th February. It means that more than 12 days are gone out.
But they said “launch in 7 days”.
Fortunately, my waste of money cost is nearly 100 dollars valued as bitcoin.
I did not use Bank Wire Transfer. Because I live in Turkey.

I wish I would see your post before I purchased some b.s orders from bitcominers.com
I noted that their website is not opening at this time.
Also, some users may ordered 4TH/s contracts, too as their comments on BitcoinScammers link;
http://bitcoinscammers.com/bitcominers-com/#comment-1427

Unfortunately, that website has got best offer, but it is not real.  Cry

So their website went down  Undecided. There goes our money.

Just very happy I'm out $70... and not more. Sorry for everyone that invested more...

Edit : I would love to know how much they made in 2 months. By the sounds of it, freaking  $100k + easily.
