To avoid having to copy and paste a thousand TxId's, let me make this all very easy for all of you.

https://blockchain.info/address/1BofXEuBSAbjwjhZuvxkoLJ9D8btpJ8knu

It will take you 3 clicks to get from the original address posted by davidbodger where he sent payment to here, then about 5 more clicks to see that they are funneling the bitcoin that they take in, directly back out to buy actual mining hardware from other suppliers. It only took me an hour of clicking on blockchain and goggling the addresses to see that they even bought Antminers from Sushi's group buy with the funds they have scammed people out of.

Congrats to anyone who sent them bitcoin, you have helped a scam artist get his first mining farm on your dollar.

They used a very piss poor mixing service too. took all of 5 minutes to find out that https://blockchain.info/address/14qGrXbPca2c4ejcKaWzvjhTK9MeHTcvtP is the address of the "partner" in this scam. seems to be holding exactly half of what has been scammed so far.

Not bad guys $115,000 in only a few months between all your scams. Crap, i need to quit my day job. If only i didnt have morals, i might hire you to teach me how its done.



THIS IS A SCAM: Reason below


No legitimate asic mining manufacturer is going to take the bitcoin they make from selling their own hardware, and turn around and use it to buy mining hardware from other manufacturers and even group buys.

Rest assured, that ANYONE who posts after this post claiming there is any legitimacy behind this company IS IN ON THE SCAM.

Carried over from the original thread.

If this is indeed a scam.  I will be the 1st to cry like a baby and like my wounds and move on.  But, I not not see where they are using those bitcoins to buy mining hardware.  I followed dozens of the links to the end and found nothing.  Help us out here.

I've messaged sushi Antminer seller here for his assistance. 
I've given him links to this thread and asked him to post message if he could help or not.

What I thought he could do is firstly contact police or whoever you report these crimes to before sending miners and give them contact details and address.

I hope that proof of the BTC trail is good evidence for police to arrest these crooks.

Lets hope sushi sees my message and posts his thoughts here soon.

Thanks Raskul for bringing the Action Fraud website to my attention.
I have now logged my own report, as a victim.
Hopefully the more victims report this crime the more attention the police will pay to it.

When you get a response, it will certainly be worth mentioning that ctsminer had employed google adwords. Google will have credit card details.

the perpetrators (see post CTSMINER) should scan the qr code on this page twice (for regulators to decide after calculation) to recover firstly daveboger losses and others after, should there be found to be others;

www.stockpix.eu

it should request 25BTC (which CAN work alongside the payment it processes, which is a year of pictures to a newspaper.)

and everything is shown, cards on the table. It is possible to self-regulate.

Hi, do you know if the thread that Rebecca started is closed. I can't post there, is it that they blocked me from the thread or is it closed. All other threads I can post to but not that one. Thanks
