Seems a bit too risky for me but if they are doing arbitrage (which is implied with their methodology) then it could very well be legitimate.

With the cap at 5% any profit over this would be theirs so that would be their profit margin. However they would not be able to guarantee balances so this is why it seems fishy and I wont be depositing one Satoshi either. From what I see was earned yesterday I earned about 12% yesterday with the market fluctuations so it appears I am doing better on my own.

Well if it's legitimate they are inept. I'm still collecting bitcoins and I already withdrew everything.

i.e it's not legitimate.

Nah, unless someone deposited tons of coins that they think would be profitable, this site wouldn't end so fast...yet.

Login is working again.
Money is still there and profit seems not to be affected.
My support email was answered by bitscalper.

I'm guessing their bitcoin client is crashed, see:

http://bitcoinmedia.com/merchant-developer-tutorial/

<?php
    require_once('jsonRPCClient.php');
    $bitcoin = new jsonRPCClient('http://username:password@127.0.0.1:8332/');
    # now check for appropriate funds in user account
    try {
        $username = ...
        if(isset($_SESSION['sendaddress']))
            $sendaddress = $_SESSION['sendaddress'];
        else {
            $sendaddress = $bitcoin->getnewaddress($username);
            $_SESSION['sendaddress'] = $sendaddress;
        }
        $balance = $bitcoin->getbalance($username);
    }
    catch (Exception $e) {
        die("<p>Server error! Please contact the admin.<p>");
    }


Whats with that code? Did you see it somewhere on bitscalpers site?
Which would suggest they at least have a bitcoind..

He's assuming they use a standard piece of code from bitcoinmedia.com, since it has that exact error message.

(Sorry for doubleposting on both topics https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=57406.0 and https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=57422.)


TL;DR: There are clear facts that Bitscalper is not what they try to tell us, I say scam!

Here are my findings:

I "joined" 10.01.2012 by sending 10BTC. By now I have 11.547BTC. 1% average per day. Doesnt sound impossible to do, huh?

1) I sent 10 BTC https://blockexplorer.com/address/14PAmBAdgjpuPgNi7jYZuUsQpAuxZoeMHv, but they didnt move at all since five days! So they are giving me 1.55 BTC just for nothing? If they dont need my funds to speculate and make 1% a day, why do they pay me that 1%?
Thats a KO for me.

For completeness, here come other, more indicative clues:

2) The user "bitscalper" is new on Bitcointalk. Noone creates such a project without having been seen on the forums before! Let me guess, "oh, our country is so dangerous, we dont want SWAT to kick in our doors". You are at such high risk that you never even mentioned the country's name?

3) The counter "all scalped BTC" and my personal stats get updated a few times a day, but then in pretty large increments. Often these two numbers dont change at the same time. You want to tell me you can dump almost 3k BTC on different, i.e. small exchanges, to take advantage of a few percent arbitrage, without totally flooding that small exchange, and make a few percent gain even after fees? And furthermore, you do this one, two, three times a day, and not several hundred times a day?

4) I won't even begin with the more subtle, but still obvious signs like never stating any surname, not even in mails, using buzzwords whereever possible, seeming to be oh-so open, pleased, grateful for any input, which will make its way to the page quickly. I recognize this "Yes, yes, thank you!" style from the bazaar, immediately before paying three times the regular price.


All in all: If it seems too good to be true, it mostly is. To compare with the Aricie bot (3% loss, then a max of 3‰ plus) and my own trading (a fat loss), this is too obvious too good. I pull out nao.


Lets collect some data, shall we? And to put this in perspective: They received 2814+ BTC by now.

Your first point is alarming. Also my fund was not touched up to now. I could still imaging constructions were this doesn't have to be, but in this case bitscalper should be able to explain it in detail.

Your other points are already known and for me not a proof for a scam, without saying that it's not a scam. When I would like to be anonymous, I would not use my usual forum account. I would just open another one.

Of course they have. Did you think they went into arbitrage trading flat broke? This is just an experiment. It will be over soon. If you're not comfortable with it, don't put money in that you can't afford to lose, as always.  Roll Eyes

It looks like the operator of the site is new to bitcoin but is developing and has been doing it for about a month.  He said there was a glitch this morning, but its back-up.  I read this in the stickied Introduce yourself thread.
