HitBTC affiliate system scam

For years I have promoted the HitBTC crypto exchange from my sites or even to friends of mine that were interested in trading crypto. Also have always defended HitBTC when anyone spoke against it, since I always had a nice experience using HitBTC, UNTIL last year when I noticed all of my HitBTC affiliate earnings had vanished!

I have been back and forth with HitBTC support team for over a year and now I finally decide to create a blog post about this, to let the public know. (I saved all these support tickets and plan to post some screenshots soon)

HitBTC reps have been saying every time that “the new affiliate program is coming soon and your funds are safe”, I tried to be patient, but I am pretty confident now that it was all a lie.

I will continuously call them out as being a scam until my affiliate earnings balance is paid. (safe to assume they’ll be keeping all future earnings from the trading fees of my referred users).

Do not pity Bitcoin Cash (Bcashers)

This cancerous community of Bitcoin Cash, bcashers, have been a thorn in cryptos side for over a year. Making false claims, lies, and intentional misguidance. Karma is showing through today, as you can see Bitcoin Cash is -40% and still falling. As of right now, there is no more BCH, only a couple of new altcoins BCHABC/BAB or BCHSV/BSV and a community that has done nothing but drag down the crypto space since August 1st, 2017.

No pity given, you try to become Bitcoin, you try to lie and cheat noobs, you want to go the cheap/easy route to get your hands on anything with “bitcoin” in the name, this is what happens.

Bitcoin Cash = altcoin
Roger Ver = liar & scammer
Craig Wright = liar & scammer
Ryan X Charles = liar & scammer
etc etc

Craig Wright email to Roger Ver

Bitcoin Cash having a civil war before the Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin ABC, Bitcoin SV fork on November 15. Craig Wright (aka faketoshi), of nChain, sent this email to Roger Ver:

“If you want a war…
I will do 2 years of no trade. Nothing.
In the war, no coin can trade.
If you want ABC, you want shitcoins, welcome to bankruptcy.
It was nice knowing you.
Bitcoin will die before ABC shits on it. I will see BCH trade at 0 for a few years. Will you?
Side with ABC, you hate bitcoin, you are my enemy. You have fucking no idea what that means.
You will.
I AM Satoshi. Have a nice life. You will now discover me when pissed off.
And, no. You Could have had proof. Your choice.
Fuck off,
Craig”

Roger Ver’s thoughts about the fork, and about the Craig Wright threats:

Bitcoin Cash has been a mess from the beginning. Problems with much of the crypto space, stemming from some BCH community members trying to confuse crypto newbies, saying “Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin” (which is obviously lies and intended for confusion)

Roger Ver offers “free money” for scam supporters

Roger Ver is now claiming that Bitcoin.com will have an ICO soon, where he wants to “give free money” to anyone holding bitcoin cash. Another attempt of Roger’s to scam support from the vulnerable newbs. Terrible

Tips on keeping a healthy & safe crypto space

Tips to keeping a safe and healthy crypto space:

1. If added to telegram chats unsolicited, report spam & leave group

I never joined Hyperion group. Report Spam. Leave group

2. See Twitter ETH giveaway scams, report them!

Report them. Block them.

Always report Tweet & block anyone with these 10k ETH giveaways

3. Never feed bcashers (after midnight lol), you do not want to see heads explode, as they all have built-in self destruct button

Don’t feed them, they survive off any attention!

4. If anyone tells you “BCH is Bitcoin”, they are scammers.

There is a long list of these scammers, names like: Calvin Ayre, Ryan X Charles, Roger Ver, Jimmy Nguyen, and many more. Be careful out there!

Coinbase account terminated

On June 11th I received an email from Coinbase about account problem. I login to my Coinbase account to see this message:

NOTICE OF ACCOUNT CLOSURE
Unfortunately, we had to close your Coinbase account. Before your account can be closed, you will need to withdraw your digital currency to an external wallet and any other funds (such as USD) to a bank account associated with your Coinbase account. Please take precautions when transferring digital currency to an external wallet, as transfers outside of Coinbase are irreversible. Please also be sure to delete any external references to digital currency addresses generated by Coinbase, as funds sent to those addresses will not be accessible once the account is closed. If you have any questions you may visit https://support.coinbase.com.

I quickly submitted a support ticket

My message: “Hi, i see my account is being closed, i had no warning and i’m not exactly sure why this is happening, can you please explain?”

Coinbase reply: “Thanks for contacting Coinbase Support. I’m sorry to hear your concern regarding your account closure. Let me help you with this one.

Our primary goal is to make our platform safe and secure for our customers. Coinbase is a regulated Money Services Business under FinCEN (FinCEN.gov), and as part of our responsibility, we are legally obligated to implement regulatory compliance mechanisms.

We regret to inform you that we are no longer able to support your Coinbase account as well as any other accounts you may have created. Please note, we have not blocked access to the balance currently in your Coinbase account; while we can no longer process brokerage orders via our banking relationship, you may still send your balance offsite to an external address.

There are a variety of factors which have been weighed in your case, and we unfortunately are unable to elaborate on our internal decision process. Please know that we do not make these decisions lightly, and do regret losing you as a customer.

We wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Thank you for your understanding. Please reply to this email if you continue to have issues or need help with anything else. Take care and have a nice day ahead.

I have since seen more people had accounts closed on this Reddit thread including GAB & Wikileaks.

Coinbase, what has happened to you, terminating legitimate 5 year old customers accounts, and more importantly not giving any reason!!! bad bad.

Beware scammers posing as HitBTC reps

Scammers using HitBTC representations are rigorously aiming to scam anyone they can. So far I know they’ve been contacting members of the HitBTC forums.

They have ICQ accounts using the real HitBTC logos as their avatars. (Scammer ICQ: 723627901)
They even have the domain HitBTC.biz and send emails from support@hitbtc.biz (scammer email) as real .com reps

.

As you can see, the user “Death-Note” is most likely part of the scam.

HitBTC support replies:

Dear traders! HitBTC.biz are scammers, do not give them your personal information. HitBTC.com is the only right address. Follow basic internet security measures: don’t visit unknown suspicious links, check your PC for malware on a regular basis, and everything will be fine.

Another way they are phishing for our personal informations is through ICQ. I’ve been contacted via ICQ by someone who claims to be part of the HitBTC team. To confirm about this I asked the HitBTC team in a thread, posted below:

.

Dear @TalkBitcoinsCom HitBTC support team has no ICQ support service. We strongly recommend you to not talk to these people. Don’t visit unknown suspicious links, check your PC for malware on a regular basis, and everything will be fine.

As you can see, another confirmed scamming or phishing attempt.

We all need to beware, these scammers are rigorously attempting to steal anything they can from you, information, money, crypto, ANYTHING.
