THIS THREAD IS DEDICATED TO KEN SLAUGHTER. God rest his con!
WHO has actively in a felonious manner stolen $1970.00 USD from me and my family in a fraudulent transaction selling non-existent ASIC mining equipment from this website;
http://virtualminingcorp.com/shop1/index.php?id_category=15&controller=category

Most recent rip off report
http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/specific_search/Virtual+Mining+Corp

Alleged video of Ken with a few Avalons and some klondikes in the background mis-stating MH/s instead of GH/s like the ameture con he is!
http://www.news-leader.com/article/20140302/BUSINESS04/303020022/Bitcoin-Springfield-mining-machines-Slaughter
Does that man appear to be capable of negotiating a multi-million dollar chip deal with engineers and manufactures he can't even complete a full sentence!( and not with that tie on for sure)!

Feel free to comment away but be warned that legal threats have no precedent in this topic. 
Anyone threatening legal recourse, which is a complete joke in 2014 on an anonymous VPN hosted forum, will be clowned upon and thrown out for running diversion tactics as a PR move on behalf of VMC so the scam/con can CONTINUE that is the only reason to cover up this truth!
The only individuals who have cause for legal action, and rightly so I might add, are the families and victims of this con artist.

If you are newly scammed please speak up. 

As of this topic creation there is no record of a refund being received by any customer of VMC for orders Ken has stated totaled $6,000,000 at one point. 

Here is the State of MO attorney general case filing website for anyone scammed to file a legitimate claim against VMC.
http://ago.mo.gov/consumercomplaint.htm

Complaints against VMC
http://www.consumer.ago.mo.gov/search/complaintSearch.cgi 

First charge-Class C Felony Theft in MO; Theft is considered a class C felony under the following circumstances:
the value of the property or services stolen is $500 or more, but less than $25,000. 

Second charge-A theft is also a class D felony if, within the previous 10 years, the offender has two or more convictions for theft-related offenses that occurred on separate occasions. (§ 570.040.)
I AM PRETTY SURE THERE IS MORE THAN ONE ORDER!

Refunds are not being sent do not be tricked a final time in this con, the time to take action is now, time is of the utmost importance!

I am also waiting for a refund, for like 10grand. Ken slaughter is hurting his reputation if you ask me. I been waiting for almost 2 months. I can't believe how they are. Things came up and I now need the money for a surgery and they are taking their time and likely not going to send me back my money. Why because I honestly think they are crooks and I'm the idiot for trusting them.

I personally NEVER pay for anything I have to WAIT for. IF they can prove they have it in hand then i MIGHT use escrow if i cant get to them.

Scammed me. Waiting for pre-order since 12-15-2013. Disconnected email accounts so they cant get emails. Called customer service, no answer, no return call. Private messaged Mr. Slaughter asking for a refund before I report VMC. His response was, "Do what you need to do.  Customers reporting us go to the bottom of the list."

Do we have a class action lawsuit open as of yet?

Cleary they have used customers money to buy avalons to mine for them selfs.

The old guy is beyond belief the way he presents him self, i am sure he is going to prison.

I have to admit when i first saw http://virtualminingcorp.com when it was first noticed,i was skepitical of the call us online button and after there was indeed the photoshopped pci-e card images which now apear to have been removed,i knew something wasnt right from the first time i saw this site,always be aware of desperation for your hard earned money.

They have $3500 of my money and are refusing to pay. Probably because they spent it.

Roughly one year ago, I called Ken Slaughter a scammer and received flak by other members.
I stand here today with my same convictions as I did one year ago, except stronger.

VMC / Ken Slaughter / ActiveMining.
It's all a scam.

I ordered last december.

Asked for a refund 1 day later (after discovering december delivery date wasn't coming)

4 months later and around 100 messages to Kenneth slauther I have yet to get that refund.

I contacted the office of the attourney general in jefferson county MO - got a letter back from them and the are actively pursuing / investigating him.



Do not buy anything from them.

I have had a similar experience as all of you. They took my 1900 and some odd dollars in December, I asked for a refund in February and have been fighting with them ever since. It's either "refunds are only sent out on Friday" or "your refund is being processed and will take 2-4 weeks". I will be notifying the attorney generals office as well. Someone needs to take their site down.

I have had about 34 posts deleted pertaining to questions about the missing refunds.

Something's not quite right.

Is there any info on refunds that weren't transferred to product? I've seen the user magzy on the forum talking about how much of a bad experience was had with VMC. Are there many refund requests? Negative feedback from customers hurts much worse when a company is new and trying to get a footing in the industry.


Ken has promised that the refunds will arrive next week. Make sure you get yours

However, I've been in contact with ken on PM's over the last 3 months after getting nothing from CS and he has replied to most of my requests with the following recurring theme:

January 30, 2014, 02:25:51 AM
We have a back log in refunds and are processing those as fast as we can.  If you have requested a refund from customer support then it is being worked on.

February 05, 2014, 01:11:34 AM »
That should have been processed, please contact customer service and tell them it has been 7 weeks.

February 05, 2014, 11:04:02 PM »
We had a little problem in December with BTC processing, so all Bitcoin refunds have to be checked, so that may be the hold up.  I will look into why you refund has not be sent.

February 27, 2014, 07:13:29 PM »
Virtual Mining is currently processing and confirming pre-order refund requests.

March 10, 2014, 12:10:40 AM »
Refund to you ASAP.

March 11, 2014, 01:28:16 AM »
I have just hired a new customer service rep.

March 17, 2014, 03:57:11 PM »
Refunds will be processed in 2-4 weeks.

April 01, 2014, 07:29:34 PM »
Me:Ken, Given that refunds will never be processed, I'll take this deal to accept product from you instead of a refund.
Ken: I don't think so, we will just send you a refund.

April 07, 2014, 02:26:10 PM »
We will be issuing you a check soon.

...next week. Lets see if he continues to take the piss.

Pretty obvious from the start that this was going to be a scam.
