Whatever ended up happening here?

They stole our money and got away with it by the looks of things.

Did you guys get 55% refunds as promised

No.

Hi Everyone,

As you may have noticed I was part of a lawsuit against Tarandeep Gill and his company Terrahash.
We have successfully won a default judgment against Tarandeep/Terrahash. We have searched for him in the US/Canada/India and have found the following information which I’m releasing to the public so that others may try to locate and claim what Tarandeep wrongfully took from them.

I've done my best to double check and verify as much information as possible but that doesn’t mean it is 100%. Some of this information might be repetitive, my apologies. If any of you have additional questions to clarify any of the below information or to help you understand the con that Terrahash pulled I’ll try my best to answer. I also have copies of pretty much everything that’s ever been related to Tarandeep Gill online so if you need this information for your lawyers I’d be glad to provide it.

Let me make it exponentially clear to you Tarandeep. I will not stop going after you, just when you think everything is fine and you've purchased a house and a car with your new wife after moving back to Canada, that’s when I’ll spring my judgment on you. Every couple of months, just for the fun of it I’ll pay a skip tracer to check in on you. You are not welcome back in the US or Canada. Stay in India, you low life scammer.

Information Retained by Skip Tracers in California

Lets not forget to name his accomplice Amninder Grewal AKA Aman Grewal AKA Ricky. He is the only one who was stupid (or dare I say brave?) enough to have had customer funds wired directly to his account from Terrahash's bank account.

All the evidence so far suggests that Tarandeep decamped only with bitcoins. There is no evidence of him withdrawing any funds directly from Terrahash's bank accounts. He just sent 12,000 USD to another person with last name "Gill" in Australia. He did, however, buy bitcoins from Coinbase using funds from the company's bank account at Chase. About 90,000 USD were wired from Terrahash to another company, which seems to be related to Terrahash. These funds were further wired to Amninder Grewal. The trail leads all the way to India.

Amninder Grewal is also from India and lives in Canada. Maybe Bargraphics can get more information about his whereabouts now?

Some of this info was obtained off hand from friends working in Chase and BoA. Hence, I am using this throwaway.

Bar, thanks for the valuable information. I think if the Tarangill will offer 55% earlier or even full refund, there will be no actions like this. I believe he is going to have a hell of a res of a life.

Great information,

One of the reasons I forgot to mention why I posted all of this information on here is because I've first hand witnesses what the community can do together (look at BFL) once there's enough information out there. Hopefully others come forward with additional information if there is any. Justice will be served one way or another even if it isn't financially but instead through stress and forever wondering when the judgement will come end up in their lap.

From all of the information gathered it looks like Amninder simply ran knowing that Tarandeep would be the one everyone went after. The Canadian Court systems are more than willing to transfer the judgement up there which is great news. Also transferring the judgement to any state in the US from California is extremely easy as well so no issues there.

As stated in my previous post I'll keep renewing these judgements and spending a few hundred dollars to keep skip tracers hot on these guys trail every so often. They definitely will be looking over their shoulders for the rest of their life.

I was withholding some more information that I have been gathering over the past few months. I didn't want to alert these scumbags that we are hot on their trail. But what Bargraphics posted must have already alerted them, so here goes!

Friends of friends working for a Canadian bank have revealed that an account owned by Tarandeep received a wire transfer of about 100,000 USD from Bitstamp in November 2013. This money was then wired to a bank account in India, owned by none other but Tarandeep.

Another 30,000 USD was withdrawn from Terrahash's bank account in cash. The very same day Amninder's BoA account received a deposit of 30,000. Guess where that money was sent? Again forwarded to India.

Looks like our boys are gonna settle in India for a while. How hard is it to enforce a US judgment in India?

Sounds like a road trip to India is on order Smiley

I doubt you can drive to India, lol. Do you happen to know any hitmen in India?

No one wants to stay in India,

Canadians tell me that it's a normal practice for men from India to move to Canada and gain citizenship then head back to India to marry to be able to bring them back into Canada to enjoy the benefits of their healthcare. From everything we learned about Tarandeep it appears this is what he is doing. Sometime in the next 3-6 months I will be he will be back in Canada with his new wife.

I doubt he will want to lease a car and rent a small apartment once that happens Wink

Bar-

Excellent job putting all this info out there. I am on a similar path with Jason Hudgins of Fibonacci, but the difference is that he is not going to be able to run like Taran did. It's people like you that help clean up this community, and it's unfortunate that most people easily let things go and too many people get away with scams. I'm noticing with my own issue that about 2-3% of people scammed in this realm don't lift a finger after being scammed and lay down and accept the loss. I couldn't fathom that.

I wish you and everyone else the best of luck with collecting from this scumbag.

I wonder if the GA SS was because that is where he resided when he became a citizen (not sure where he was born)?

Everyone reading this needs to use Bar as an example of how everyone needs to react in these situations. Obviously, everyone isn't going to have the resources to pursue him like this, but be vocal, and make sure you make it so the scammer cannot scam others.

Thank you,


Just make sure you guys do your best to post as much correct, verifiable information as possible. No sense in ruining someones life that has nothing to do with this. That being said, make sure you use every variation of the scammers verified name because google never forgets. Also be sure to post pictures hosted somewhere that the scammer cannot delete them (I have them saved on my computer but should probably upload here). Google images was a huge help in verifying that Amir's real name was actually Tarandeep (who I actually physically met in California).

Everyone that wants to post information, if it's relevant I'll spend the extra few hundred or so to verify bank accounts, locations, etc.. and keep compiling all the information on here. Any employer of Tarandeep will ultimately find this forum through google no matter how much fake SEO he does to website.

Enjoy the rest of your life Gill.

And now look at Jasinlee... so much for calling BKK as scammer eh buddy?

Knew he was a piece of shit when he started being a tool well back in 2013 when he started that fibonacci crap.


Bkkcoins work has not only helped this community, but his BOM and PCB have been adapted and copied many times. The Kondike has served as the basis for Technobit's miners, as well as a template probably for potential Litecoin mining ASIC pcb's as well, and who knows what other inspirations and technological innovations.

Accidents happen, and nothing is perfect. People lose bitcoins all the time, and they live through it, without brain damage.

That is not the case for real life accidents.

I appreciate what he has done to a tremendous degree, however it doesn't make it right for him to ignore his debts. I won't accept the not-small amount Chris owes me as some sort of collateral damage for the good of the greater mining community. That's ridiculous.

No one I hope would ask you to do that bassclef.

I merely think if anyone is going to smear his name they provide proof he lied and not insinuate that he faked or lied about laying in hospital  to take that to another thread and wax on about it there. This thread has been useful to so many people it doesn't need to devolve with name calling and false accusations or slander. I think it would be good if people could, if they have a legitimate beef and need to get BKKCoins to pay them back, to start a thread for that. For the most part people were civil asking for refunds or asking for more information that is cool. Jasinlee took that one step too far and slandered the guy.

I hope BKKCoins does whatever he can to send people refunds as quickly as possible and I believe that is well within the rights of people who are owed money to ask for it. In fact a number of us who have "lost" something in this monetarily have offered to donate more to help offset the loses of people. Maybe a new thread for a collection plate to refund those who are owed would be a great idea. Who is willing to escrow and check and verify who is owed?


----

Back on track...

zipiju nice work. I hope it benefits a lot of people.

If your saying terrahash got the chips I dont think that is correct.  They were very secretive of what they had.  I do remember they somehow got out of a deal on chips... and claimed they found a better deal.  So no big amount of chips were ever bought I don't believe, they photoshopped in my mind documents.

This was a close one for me paypal saved me from being scammed I asked for paypal to do non shipment when TH did not hold up their deadlines.  Sadly many believed.

Whatever happened with this?  Did he really just take the money and run?

I, too, was saved by PayPal.  I know many others weren't.  Surely this world isn't large enough for this scumbag to get away with this cleanly.  I know a few lawsuit judgments were made, but has anyone collected?

People who still believed and did not take dispute route most lost money.  A few posted they got it back even after limit of day's, but was few.  BTC only first few ever got refund.

They rode off into the sunset with a LOT of money in the end.   There were lawsuits not sure what happened on those.  But likely TH made owner quite a bit after it all on a scam.

The amazing part is they only showed 1 prototype and it did not preform to spec.   Also I would be interested to know what happened to the person who toured the offices, I don't remember their name.

*Note it's been a long time since this so I could be wrong on some facts.
