The channel has over 2000 followers who could fall victims, lets all try to report it so that it's marked as a scam by telegram



I also wanted to know if it's possible to report the domain so that it get's taken down on short notice or one has to go through a long process to get the domain registrar to act?

I can access the website (smartmixer.io) without any difficulty, all pages seem to be loading in quick time. If what they said it true about the DDoS they certainly should have made an announcement on their website that they were under DDoS attack and were in the process of getting things back to normal as a courtesy to users.

The failure to do that along with the locking of their threads and it coinciding with the end of their signature campaign here - makes it look very suspicious indeed. Add to that the Telegram message then all becomes clear, sadly another exit-scam going on.





smartmixer - scammer telegram update

Apparently they will not stop stealing.

Wow... I miss few days in Scam Accusation section and this is what I find.
It is obvious that Smartmixer is aware of this post and issue they created, as they where online recently and locked their topics.

Currently, you still haven't received a response and the discussion has been open for 3 months almost today
This was their last update in their telegram channel last February


Imagine, they called this legitimate scam accusation a false report! That meant that they had no plans of resolving the issue and were simply pulling off their exit scam. They haven't been active in the forum since then.

Hello, I had to register on this forum specifically to look for help regarding this issue. I have been using smartmixer for almost a year on a regular basis, including successful mixing operations two week ago until yesterday when two of my mixing orders containing ~2 BTC disappeared and never reached the destination address. I encountered the same issue as described here. After creating mixing order, sending BTC and coming back to mixing link to check the status of the transaction the page was no longer found. I decided its just a bug and waiting for mixing time to expire, but no BTC was ever received. I have letters of guarantee and uploaded them to their website, also tried to reach smartmixer by email, but no response so far. Was there any luck in resolving this case?

Sorry to hear your lose. Someone really needs to report this domain to ICANN so that they take proper action.

@mindrust, do you know how to report a domain?

Also, someone needs to create a red flag against the user. I see only a type 3 flag here.

Their telegram channel that had over 2000 subscribers got deleted. It's nice to know that the reporting worked.

I also asked about reporting domains sometime back.  I would like to know how the whole thing is done and whether it's something easy to do or it's along process. I would gladly participate into reporting the smart mixer domain for fraud/scam

How come they are back scamming again using the same website that was down for so long? Unfortunately people will be falling in to their scam and will lose money, that is just not right.

I have done my part.



I think we need a group of users to come forward and do the same against these scammers. Please let me know who are with me?

What I want you is:
Go to the URL and report the domain like I did and update on this post. I will keep a log in this post and update it.
Can we do this and save innocent users from losing their bitcoin?

Edit: After having a quick chat with the live support I got a link from them. If you want then you can do some study: https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/9196/5/how-and-where-can-i-file-abuse-complaints

Unfortunately namecheap does not take into account simple plants for a site Tongue the only thing to do is to file a complaint in a police station so that namecheap does the necessary Roll Eyes
Well they were very well managed with me when I had the live chat with them. According to their response in my email, they will investigate and will see what they can do.

My guess is if a lot of people report the same thing then they will take this case more seriously and will do a proper investigation. This is the reason for me to ask some more users to do the same thing that I did.

Report against the domain to them.

It now redirects to tokens.net so I wonder what the story is behind it: https://www.tokens.net/tr/kripto-para/ripple-xrp/

This is what I see now which means the report worked?
Before reporting, I did not check if the site was live or not. Whatever the case is - it feels good to see that the site is not active and possibly the domain is suspended by namecheap.

I hope in the future no one else become a victim of these fraud mixing sites.

Yeah, last month the website was still live. I just found out it was put down while doing my usual follow up. It's good to know that reporting these scam domains actually works.
Kudos @Royse777

So smartmixer.io is no longer in operation because Namecheap the domain registrar pulled the plug on them. The domain resolves on the Namecheap parking page.

A lesson for all to consider, if nothing else works then this has to be a great way to make a point, remove their domain name and let the scammers suffer. Until the scammers re-think their strategy and start a new scam website it will provide protection for any gullible people becoming victims.
