Bit Connect - Fraud or Legit - Reality Check!
# **Bit Connect -  Fraud or Legit - Reality Check!**

https://media.giphy.com/media/dv3vNNQX4eCek/giphy.gif

Hi everybody! MS aka cryptogem here. Today, I want to talk about Bit Connect. This is a lending service for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Here, specifically you can lend your Bitcoins and then receive massive returns every year This is extremely among some youtubers or even Steemit. People seem to be posting these ‘unheard of’ daily returns and getting these massive rewards. Now, before I begin I want to start off with saying that anything I post on cryptocurrencies is thoroughly researched and verified before being put out her. I am passionate about this asset class and it tends to show in my work. I conduct thorough research and not just your normal amount of research, that will satisfy a novice, but I tend to stretch my limits for research.

Bitconnect is one of the things, that I really don't understand. And after reading  and comprehending about them, there are not many things, I don’t u

📣 Do Not Invest in Bitconnect Ponzi 📣 - Part II - Mr Lemon VS craig-grant
**This is a response to @craig-grant newest video to explain why my [[Warning] Do Not Invest in BitConnect, it is a Ponzi Scam! Read these 10 Reasons Why](https://steemit.com/bitconnect/@vlemon/warning-do-not-invest-in-bitconnect-it-is-a-ponzi-scam-read-these-10-reasons-why) is apparently bullshit.**

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/BnYRUHq4ZxY/maxresdefault.jpg

**First, I wanted to thank him for giving my old post so much attention as I reached 5 751 views with this post (good news for Steemit organic growth :D ).**

**As before, this is an epic-fail and I am linking below his video so you can make your own opinion.**



Sentences with "" are his.

### What is nice with @craig-grant is that he is not too smart and therefore, to be convinced that Bitconnect is a Ponzi, you just have to listen to him. 
### He clearly doesn't know and understand the CryptoWorld, he has no financial knowledge and no objectivity

### Here are the different points he tried to "attack", please launch the video at the same time and enjoy !

How I Lost $1,125.14 Using Bitconnect
A story of how I lost $1,125.14 using Bitconnect... I bought a $200 loan from Bitconnect when 0.2 btc was $200. Now that same .2 btc is worth $1,648.76. my current profit with Bitconnect is $323.62 plus ill get my capital $200 back. That's 523.62 total. To buy back the .2 btc I used to start the loan I will need $1,125.14 on top of what Bitconnect paid me... If you don't get it I'm sorry, I don't have the time to convince you. Bitconnect is a scam. It's stupid and you'll never make "Profit" unless you MLM like a scammer with no soul. SHARE.

切身之痛:投資平台HYIP如何騙你的錢?How I got scammed from HYIP
[歡迎分享],希望大家對於投資更有警覺!

各位鄉親父老大家好,相信大家都有聽過HYIP(High Yield Investment Program),這種高報酬吸引大家入金的公司。我也是被他們的高利率所吸引,大概兩個禮拜前開始研究這些平台。與其說研究不如說瀏覽,就是上網瘋狂爬文,看看大家的評價以及可以相信程度的分析。我也在上禮拜第一次開始投入資金到BtcHash這一家公司,結果出乎意料,竟然一個禮拜還沒過完,這平台就直接圈錢跑路了。

當然,我丟的0.1BTC直接人接蒸發了,本來還想等一個月賺出來拿去買新的小米手機呢 QQ
所以我想提供我簡單的分析,究竟是什麼什麼因素,會使投資者無法自拔,明知是火坑還往裡面跳呢?

![hacker-2077138_960_720.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmVNpdemN3HD3a1J7LiP8PJnceR7wwPb2hFSSVYCRUSpgK/hacker-2077138_960_720.jpg)

Fake Utopian account requesting "7 sbd only" for upvotes
A fake Utopian.io account is requesting sbd for upvotes. The account is https://steemit.com/@utopian-oi/transfers. The account already got one 7 sbd transfer. I am not sure if the person who sent it is a victim. Here's a screenshot of this account's transfer tab:

![image.png](https://res.cloudinary.com/hpiynhbhq/image/upload/v1510968822/thssngnuy4van3jvonh5.png)

As you can see, he is sending this message in the transfer memo, "If you want to upvote from me, you just send 7 sbd only, send it to my account now".

Please do not send any money to him. His upvotes are worth 1 cent. If you do, he will either keep it to himself without giving a upvote or give you a worthless vote.

# It is a scam.
</br>
The person who sent SBD to the scammer is @doinglean. His account shows he is posting regularly for last six days but before that, he was quite inactive. The post before the post posted in the sixth day is two months old.

Carl asked Doug if he could help him get a copy of his German birth certificate since it’s widely known that Doug frequently visits Paris. Carl was born in Germany to Polish parents, adopted, and raised in the US. He lost his original birth certificate in a fire set by his ex-wife. Since France borders Germany, and Doug doesn’t speak either French or German it should be fairly straight forward... <br>

Coinbase Phishing SCAM -- Part 2
**UPDATE:**

<center>![Coinbase-Phishing-Scam-324x160.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmT9xB4Htxb93e9hezHejyEVNvy7uLH6G3BE5zkF8AufJp/Coinbase-Phishing-Scam-324x160.jpg)</center>

These MUTHAFUKKAS are relentless!!!

**I just received another Coinbase Phishing Scam email today…** This one claimed that due to "Phishing Scams" they need to verify your account.., and have link to click on (do not click on that link!). They go on to say, if you don't follow the link, you account will be disabled and your funds blocked.

First they send out a Phishing Scam email.., then a few days later they send out another one, claiming that due to an increase in Phishing Scams you need to verify your identity. Pretty tricky.., and slimy!

The SCAMMERS email: coinbase.group

**screenshot of email received:**

PHISHING SCAM: MyEtherWallet Needs Update To Protect ERC Tokens from Parity Multi-Sig Flaw...???

Opened email this morning to find the following:

*Immediately,* came the question: **is this legit or a phishing scam?

Granted, one would not be wise to click any links or buttons, until sure.

*Well,* I had already started writing *this* story by the time I opened the sender's email address to find: **"info@xn--myetherallet-nu5f.com"**

*Sure as fuck sounds phishy to me.*

<center>
https://s18.postimg.org/xc1886cmx/phishing-800x450.jpg
</center>

*Moral of the story?*

<h3>Be EXTRA-fucking careful.</h3>

We've *all* heard of phishing scams, not to open links from untrusted sources or to web addresses that seem a little off. **This is a prime example.**

Might be *tempting* to act before

코인베이스 사칭 스캠 메일을 받았습니다.
코인베이스에서 메일이 왔습니다. 제가 $12 상당의 0.04804ETH를 막 보냈고, 네트워크 수수료로 0.00021 ETH를 사용했다고 합니다. 그리고 내가 보낸 게 아니라면 취소 버튼을 누르라고 합니다.

![스크린샷 2017-11-21 오후 10.42.07.png](https://steemitimages.com/DQmcKHiEAu9SDST1pdsN5xxvQ4WTMnQU3xAvC9iK9BqDt43/%E1%84%89%E1%85%B3%E1%84%8F%E1%85%B3%E1%84%85%E1%85%B5%E1%86%AB%E1%84%89%E1%85%A3%E1%86%BA%202017-11-21%20%E1%84%8B%E1%85%A9%E1%84%92%E1%85%AE%2010.42.07.png)

무엇보다 가장 이상한 건 제가 코인베이스에 가입한 적이 없다는 것이죠.

원래는 메일을 열어보지 않고 지울까 했으나, 어떤 내용일까 싶어 열어보았습니다. 코인베이스를 이용하시는 분들이 많지는 않을 거 같지만, 늘 주의하셔야 할 거 같습니다.

Lesson learned... This is a Public Service Announcement... Be Aware of Scammers in Steemit.Chat Impersonating Whales!
![](https://steemitimages.com/DQmQ8fMdXkCCEy9AreMNU51KsyFug1vcHnJ52a2gwRens6Z/image.png)

Dear Steemit Friends,

I wanted to create a post as a public service notice to help warn the community of a new scam that is starting to impact users of Steemit.  It's not a complex scam and in hindsight should have easily been detected.  I myself was recently victim to it (stupid on my part) and several others that I recently found out when I brought it up in common chat.

I was up late last night working on some of my various Steemit and Discord projects when I was I was DMed in Steemit.Chat by this user.   Because this user that messaged me on Steemit.Chat was using the handle of a very SP wealthy whale, I will not disclose his name.   The catch here is that the user in Steemit Chat is in fact not the real Whale from Steemit.  This person was impersonating him.

The Steemit.Chat user DMed me and after a few minutes of conversation asked me to send him 10 SBD to upvote a few of my posts.   It seemed a little strange to

FAKE thejohalfiles In steemit.chat - Try To Cheat Me
Hello everyone..
Here I get an incident that I think is very funny and also makes me upset of course. when we become a good steemian and to achieve success in an honest way, but there are still people who play badly by trying to deceive others.

yesterday i got a message from thejohalfiles in steemit.chat and the first thing that made me happy was **WOW** great guy sent me a message. but it's all a lie, when I see him asking SBD to vote my post.

### I JUST LAUGHED

I'm sure a great person would not do such a thing. and I tried to ask him to follow my account if it was real, but it was not, he was just a **FAKE thehojalfiles**

SCAM in Steemit Chat
### I just survived my first SCAM attack in Steemit Chat
Somebody that pretended that he/she is @glitterfart contacted me in Steemit Chat:

![Clipboard01a.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmPdYireSuEkFz6p37vS65JMfqwk6pMb4AjhXLwAjRzqSs/Clipboard01a.jpg)
 <hr>


At that point there was only 5% chance that out of the blue a Whale contacted me and badly needs my 10SBD. I copied the username from the chat to https://steemit.com/ and hit enter:

 <hr>

![Clipboard01b.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmasTPjxmjLiZ9TY2f7cjbXWhyR2mTqXXzYTgQoyjnA8yZ/Clipboard01b.jpg)
 <hr>

So I asked him/her:

![Clipboard01c.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmcEBMMxaWxogL2gb7fueB9fJYxCgbVCHUfFwnWbcrSwVW/Clipboard01c.jpg)

 <hr>

I was disanointed it was not a whale but a scammer. I decided to play this game little bit longer.

Time For My Annual Check-In With Comcast - 20 Minutes Saves $360
## Checking in with my Internet Service Provider has become part of the holiday tradition.

Right in the middle of Thanksgiving and Christmas and several birthdays. It marks the anniversary of our last move: the day we signed up for Cable Internet service. 

Today I checked my email and discovered that my latest cable bill was ready. Only it's $30 more than what I'm used to!

Having been through this almost every year of my adult life, I knew what was up. I wasn't in the mood for it, but I went ahead and dialed right away anyway. *Putting off this telephone call is what they want me to do.*

After navigating several menus, I reached an operator in the billing department. "Yes, I just noticed my bill is $30 higher than usual."

"Well, it seems you were receiving an introductory rate on your package. That's expired, so you'll be billed the higher rate going forward."

"In that case I'd like to disconnect the TV service. I was only paying for TV because the package rate was better."

"Well, in some cases the int

Vorsicht Downvoter @iamhuman - SkyWay Scam - flagt Betrugswarnung, diesmal war @physalis fällig
<html>
<p>Einige können sich vielleicht noch an den Spamer &nbsp;skyway-sw-aktien erinnern? Dazu habe ich gut recherchiert und eine absolut berechtigte Warnung (etliche Finanzmarktaufsichten) für alle deutschsprachigen Steemians ausgesprochen.</p>
<p>Heute scheint schon wieder einer aus seinem Nest gekrochen zu sein und hat mir für meinen kritischen Beitrag, über den riesigen SkyWay Scam, ein Downvote mit 100% verpasst.</p>

<p>Einer dieser Jünger dieses Betrugskartells scheint auch <a href="https://steemit.com/@iamhuman">@iamhuman </a>zu sein, der behauptet co-owner (Mitbesitzer) zu sein: Ganz klar mit einer partner_id=9952, die in der Regel laufende Nummern nach Registrierungseingang sind, oder?</p>

#Confido ( #CFD) hatte bis vor kurzem noch ein Hoch. Der Kurs stieg und stieg.

Nun geht der Kurs seit Tagen von über einem Dollar auf zZt. 0.006969$ runter.

Die [Webseite](http://confido.io) ist offline und im [Bitcointalk](https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2173212.0) sieht man als erstes den Hinweis:

#Confido war mit einer neuen Debitcard angetreten. Die Investoren sind nun die angeschmierten...

Wieder einmal zeigt sich das ICOs immer ein Risiko sind. Teilweise sind es nur Ideen die Millionen von Dollar bekommen.

Eigentlich Wahnsinn...

Pay to Win Disabled in Battlefront 2 [The Full Story]
