-Company proposed to be struck off the register by companies house and shown as "Dormant".
-Overdue by four months in submitting accounts.
-Registered address is a mail-forwarding and safe-deposit box business in london.
-Has a specific Financial Services Authority warning: http://www.fsa.gov.uk/pages/Doing/Regulated/Law/pdf/genius-international.pdf
-Offers comission for those bringing in new deposits.

Seems legit.

And yet Clipse seems to be sure it's legit:

no way in hell they would operate as a ponzi while being registered with actual offices. If this is a registered company and its a ponzi then there is bigger problems than all the shit being flinged in this thread.

Why would anyone invest with BS&T when obviously legit companies like this are offering a safe 3.3% per day?

Sorry sarcasm doesnt reflect good on the internet and with all the dung beetles in this thread its even harder with all the stuck up people on a witch hunt.

I was about to spend a couple of minutes typing out a long reply but it just aint worth it.

Wait, what was the point of posting that link? Is this some sort of criticism of OP for not dropping every job and hobby and spend all of this time on the internet crusading against Ponzi schemes the world over? I really don't understand.

In any event, can we have less ad hominems, eh?

how can u even compare pirate's scheme to an obvious ponzi? pirate has nowhere near the rates of a real ponzi and no ponzi lasts for nearly a year...
Both assertions are false.

People really need to understand that Ponzi schemes are not rare, and Pirate's would not be an unusual one by any dimension.

This is quite a suspicious place to start a business after launching service that resembles a money laundering scheme (GPUMAX) and one that resembles a ponzi (BTCS&T)

We have a funny situation here in this thread. There are two quite distinct groups of people, one relentlessly ponting out the obvious truth, the other consisting of complete idiots who are unable or unwilling to see the truth, even while their noses are continuously pushed into it.

What will the idiots say, once the ultimate proof is out and there is no denying any more?

so you are going to kick me in the nads before Pirate even though he's stealing $1M+ USD from the BTC community and I'm pointing it out?  

[snip]A LOAD OF BLABBERING[/snip]

Please answer me with all your evidence of him STEALING $1M+ USD as you stated. You dont claim he will steal it, you claimed now that he is currently/allready stealing it in your own words which I have requoted again.

Sorry similar examples doesnt constitute as facts even though it might give you some strange arousal thinking you are the GOTCHA MAN.

If you lack the fundamental command of the english language and dont understand that you expressed his theft as something that allready occurred then you should really hit up books other than poker-related.

PS. Nothing will ever beat your own financial LULZ 500% expected interest within 24hrs on loan that you got scammed for, NOW THATS going down in history as the biggest turd.


Aw man really? "A LOAD OF BLABBERING" ?

citing clear examples from multiple sources vs. Pirateat40's own words drawing extreme similarities, almost to the T?

u got nothing to reply to my actual post full of facts and links?

3) I know exactly what he is doing, how he does it and why.  It is not a ponzi. It is a a legit business taking advantage of a rare economic opportunity that was just explained to you better and more detail than I have seen anywhere else.

Seems like we are past the denial / drank the kool-aid theory.

BurtW - you know exactly what you are doing - it's shameful and I hate you for doing it.  You are knowingly defrauding many users, making a small profit yourself, and helping the largest BTC scammer ever run a scam. 

I hope you get Dox'd / wish I met you to take a pic.
So that justifies hating him for it?

yes, I hate those doing intentional harm to my beloved bitcoin in order to make a quick, dishonest buck like yourself.  You pray on the naive and are doing evil, not good.

I am not the law, but I represent justice.  I hope you are also Dox'd, running your bullshit DankBank ponzi is bullshit too.  Unless you are financing drug sales, at which point you may be sustainable.  If anyone ever posts a drug-growing-silkroad-selling bond or investment op, I want to see some pix of the plants.

You pointed out zero facts of him stealing any money, again please try to point me to evidence that he is stealing money. Those ponzi scheme examples is just that examples and not facts. Again I didnt expect you to understand the difference with your narrow view over anything.

You are afterall the 500% interest man and I am sure you must have been burned even more than that before cause that is just fucking gullable.

 Cheesy  Cheesy

Love this line... it's like something right out of a comic book. If you're supposed to be the superhero to Pirate's super villain, you have the cheesy lines for it. I give you full credit there.

This is money, if you want people to take you seriously then act more like an accountant than the crazy street preacher in down town San Francisco. As it is, you're just regurgitating what much more reliable and reasonable membership have already said.

It's just that when you say it, in my mind I see a spandex body suit and steam coming out of your ears with a thought bubble containing your blurb.

Geez, if I were Pirate I'd invent you as my nemesis.

Yep you nailed right on the head. But anyhow; knowledgeable and relevant members have pointed out this same issue with quite well seasoned and reasoned logic.

People do listen, they just wonder if they can jump off the train with their lotto winnings before it derails OR they simply believe it's a long shot gamble and don't care if they lose and some just plainly believe it's a legit business.

Clipse is simply waging "go and prove a negative" campain. Safe to ignore him, he is blabbering utter illogical nonsense.

(It seems 80% of population of this board could use some logic 101)

I'd agree; both sides seem to blabber a bunch without any real logic.

And some accept it is a case of Schrodinger's cat with an associated probability distribution. Like every decision in life it is a case of weighing risk and reward and making a decision.
