I made this scam accusation because there were lots of complaints from members but the culprits were never red tagged and there isn't any trust flag either. With the emergence of a new mixing service with an almost similar name; SmartMixer.io, Some people could still fall victim of the old scam website which is also still active.



What happened: SmartMix.io scammed off a number of users. There have been complaints but no action was take to tag their profile.

Type one flag; Please support - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;flag=498
I would also like DT Members to tag their profile as no one did put a red tag on it.

Quotes of people who have been scammed

SmartMix.io is a scam - Evidence, Part 1

User received an email request for evidence supporting the claim that SmartMix.io is a scam.

The user responded as follows:



Some peripheral supporting evidence can be found here:

1) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2827109.msg40602386#msg40602386
2) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2815450.msg32960872#msg32960872
3) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2815450.msg36160019#msg36160019


Concrete evidence is shown in attached .pdf showing screenshots of two recent Txs with SmartMix.io.  
1) The first Tx did not end in the theft of the user's BTC, but is pertinent in that it shows an address owned by SmartMix.io.  
2) The 2nd Tx resulted in the user's BTC being stolen.  

Viewing the Tx via blockchain.info, one can clearly see that the user sent BTC to SmartMix.io's address.  One can further see that the BTC was not mixed, nor was BTC sent back to the user's specified address.

SmartMix.io has failed to respond to any communication via their website support contact form at https://smartmix.io/support or emails sent to smartmix@gmx.net.

Thus it can be confirmed that SmartMix.io received BTC and failed to send BTC back to the user.

Here are direct links to the relevant Txs on the BTC blockchain:

1) Tx showing SmartMix.io ownership of address, 3PVFJCMNti7kY4fxZ3nnwALX4qTS6xsoj4
https://blockchain.info/tx/51a67b7d3a4593df246969004e75d70f307f043275afb0b8ea205c3397216a33

2) Tx showing SmartMix.io's address, 3PVFJCMNti7kY4fxZ3nnwALX4qTS6xsoj4, received BTC from user.
https://blockchain.info/tx/50135c1e012202f60ac414faebeec8a1a138589fa1bbf86c7d40cad0922790d1

3) User's specified output address shows balance of zero - i.e. user did not receive BTC (mixed or not) from SmartMix.io.
https://blockchain.info/address/1DFnmz26X4c3gBtpbgwz2HRJHkCqJfRuh1

Of course, feel free to try to contact SmartMix.io and obtain his side of the story, if he has one.  

Simple question for him to answer:  Tx #2 (above) shows conclusively that you received 1.8620081 BTC, but you did not mix those BTC and send them to the user's specified address.  User claims that you have also failed to respond to any of her communication attempts.  Why?

If you have any further questions, I'll try to answer them.  Email me.



The .pdf mentioned can be found here.   It consists of annotated screen shots that step through the two transactions discussed above.







hello i have tried contact you 3 times on your support still no reply i sent 2.3 btc and still waiting on my btc, i have used your service before but never wanting so long time.

All i need is my 2.3 btc back asap!!!!!


when i entered my mixing key, first it said:

now when i enter the mixing key it says:

This mixing key is either expired or does not exist.

SmartMix.io == TOTAL SCAM.... STAY AWAY.

Scammer allows user's first Tx to go through.... Then steals user's BTC on subsequent Tx.

User's first Tx will typically be a small amount to test the service to see if it's a scam.  The SmartMix.io scammer processes the small test Txs to make the service appear legit, but then steals the BTC sent via any subsequent Tx, which is typically larger than the initial test Tx.  Scammer ignores all contact attempts.  Support form on website is meaningless.

SmartMix.io is a COMPLETE SCAM.  STAY AWAY.




We also have been scammed.  We sent coins to the wallet they posted and then when we went back to check the transaction some how the wallet totally changed.
