What happened: Very suspicious website, 100% plagiarized content!

Reference Link: https://blockcoins.io/

Announced by: Butoolix

ANN: FREE DOLLAR blockcoins.io

Flag 1: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=trust;flag=1018

  • I'm not entirely sure what this website is supposed to be but it's very like a scam/phish attempt of some sort.
  • Description, legal terms almost everything on their website is copy-pasted from somewhere else for example, Armory wallet, HitBTC, Blockchain.com, and others. Don't log in / create an account.
  • I found at least a half a dozen sites with the exact same look, some of those domains are now suspended.
  • After further investigation it turns out blockcoins.io is a deposit scam wallet/exchange. Your account will be frozen and you will be asked to deposit money, this scheme usually starts with a promo code/giveaway. For more information visit this page.

Good catch, I guess it's a very cheap scamsite, where people have to desposit money and are scammed when they try to withdraw. I didn't found any reviews, wether positive or negative so the site seems to be very new.

In addition, they are using achievements of armory to advertise their own scamsite (don't know if it's intentional or just lazy copypasta):

Retarded? send any proof about scam. how this site can scammed you? you will deposit any amount and instantly withdraw these funds back to your wallet, so why then it's scam? how they will scammed you? they have no any scam offers for free money or something with that. And not any negative with evidence about the scam ^^. Why are you saying this is scam? If there is plagiarism in the description, does that mean scam? withdrawal works without any problems. This site is scam because it has a copied description of how bitcoin works? if they have scammed you, please send a proof. I can say that your mother is fucked by hundreds of blacks guys every day, this is my assumption, but this may not be relevant to reality. I can say the same about your message. not a single fact about scam

The reasons listed obove are strong red flags that people shouldn't send money to a website where no reviews are known, the text is copy-pasted without effort from other sites (=> cheap scamsite) and even passing other people's achievements as their own? That's utterly untrustworthy.

If this site had scammed me, I would have created a scammer flag type 3. Did I? Nope. Newbie flag is appropriate to warn others (less expericed users).  Wink

If you disagree, oppose the flag and we'll see how many DT members will share your point of view. ^^

Sure, I'm always sending money to suspected fraud sites for testing and to confirm that it's a scam.   Roll Eyes

The plagiarism of describing how Bitcoin works is not proof. Yes? Seriously? Then why did you allow yourself to say that this is a scam? If you haven’t even checked it. These are purely your assumptions, which are not evidence. You can send any amount to this site, any minimum, and you will see that instant withdrawal works on the site. The site does not offer any free money or profitable offers for making a deposit, none of this is available. Then what is the essence of fraud if a withdrawal works on the site and there are no pretexts because of which a person should make deposits?

Read what I've said:

...
Claiming a collaboration is how Bitcoin works?

Just a coincidence that several sites have the same design?


Don't you think it's obvious, that you are a shill account?  Cheesy Cheesy
That's also an untrustworthy behaviour btw...

So here's how the scheme works exactly:

1. You are given promo code and a link to their website to register

2. When you enter the code and you head to withdraw your money, your account is being frozen

3. You are asked to deposit 0.01BTC to proceed.

These idiots are new to bitcointalk obviously, that shit scam has been all over discord.

The website that i listed above - Coinxkeep, which is 1:1 copy of blockcoins.io, is caught by dkbit98 in this topic: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5193065.0


edit; I've updated/changed the topic title from likely a phishing wallet to deposit scam wallet.

These are purely your assumptions, which are not evidence. You can send any amount to this site, any minimum, and you will see that instant withdrawal works on the site.

I would like to add a few more details about blockcoins. While trying to withdraw my fake 1 BTC from their website i was asked to deposit 0.01 BTC first, just like the other websites. This should be enough evidence to call them a scam.



The following wallets were used in both blockcoins and coinxkeep, if anyone wants to further investigate:
