u just scared everyone shitless ...  Grin

Nope, I've written off the loss, anything recovered is just gravy now.   Face it, we have been scammed.  Now it is just a cat and Ponzi game.

just to add another warning here:

my account seems to have simply vanished with all the BTC in it, no reply from support either, so right now I would definitely warn against sending any BTC there.

The sad thing is, they could have made plenty of money through arbitrage, shared it fairly, and not needed to scam. They probably would have earned far more in the long run. And, if they had been running this honestly, they could withstand a run, as they claim our money was always there on exchanges. They would have had a smaller balance to work with. I think it is apparent the money is not there. Maybe they are paying us back as they earn it, maybe they are just stringing us along while bringing in new suckers. Only time will tell.

Meanwhile, I suspect we are talking 10s of thousands of dollars at a minimum are at stake. Anyone consider chipping in for some investigation and legal action? I'm pissed enough, I would much rather piss away the coin on lawyers and investigators than see them make a dime off of us.
I'd be keen to help out with any investigation.

Does anyone know much about forensic blockchain research? Just wondering what ability we have to try and track transfers for any clues. We could build up a collection of TXID's

Here's the whois on the domain
http://whois.domaintools.com/btc-arbs.net

..mentioned here:

https://blockchain.info/address/19aS3aRQ467JbFoAFCRaNwmMKKhDNTbAwV

...Maybe this can help you. Someone in the previous posts tracked his transactions and found this address with accumulated funds. Perhaps, others can find their investments leads to this address too...

*****POSTED******

Thursday 24th April 2014

0.80%

More legacy fund transfers are on the way. One transfer was made last night and another transfer will be made in a few hours. The accounting process is going well with major transfers from the previous owners' trading accounts on the way. Today's arbitrage result is 0.8%.


Well I (and I suspect others) got bugger all ... guess it must be my 'punishment' for daring to post a support ticket asking what the hell was going on.

it's hard to believe but I think the guy actually did that. no matter what, no other deposits today from legacy to active balance so the chances for getting nothing more from this site are growing each moment....interesting comment he did:

"The guy that runs the one man show is called Adam. They claim to be based in Geneva which is bogus, Adam claims he lives in Canada but now is in China. Their Bank account is in Hong Kong and the website is registered in panama. Sounds like Alcapone. I have details of the details of their account in Hong Kong which I will turn over to the authorities here in America if they dont return my money in a couple of days on the hope I save someone else from being suckered".

Maybe he can make this info public to us and see if we can inform any authority about that to find a solution for recovery our losses...

and coming back to greed:

If I were this "Adam", probably I would do the same...because it is a huge temptation seeing an amount of 1k BTC in your walltes...with one note: I would probably do this arbitrage, lock all users btcs and use that amount to get more profits for 1-2-3 weeks and then return the initial investments to the users stating something went wrong and the site will shut down - withdraw all your funds....in background I will do 1%-2% on a daily basis from all btcs...and later I'll give them back - and for sure majority will be happy to get their initial investment back - Like I will be if that ever will happen...but again...I'm in the losers boat and I am influenced by that...probably I would have another approach if I never invested there..and everyone knows: it is very easy to talk, but very hard to act..specially when (at least in this case) you don't know what you can do...

Authorities won't care. And even if they do, they won't do much. I understand you can try if you lost 65 btc.

But yeh, those who read this topic before could have seen the warnings from me and others, yet you got greedy and now you will lose it all. Well done, nothing but yourself to blame.

Those who never read this topic before, sorry for your lost. Next time google before you put your money somewhere.

Don't expect them back. He is a proven HYIP admin and nothing will get paid back to you....

I really don't think that the sell of 1k btc is the real reason of the dropping

Yea well dumped/sold same thing Tongue they're just unloading, and people aren't putting in the dollar to back it up, cos obviously everyone wants it as cheap as possible, and whoever is unloading, isn't really taking the whole community into consideration...
