Bitcoin Scam Alert! List of Current Bitcoin Scams and Scammers

After falling for the latest bitcoin scam out there I am compelled to write about the number of bitcoin scams going on out there and the scammers behind them. My Story began in a Thursday after noon (Wednesday August 13, 2014) when I was contacted by a person pretending to be a representative of  cryptocoinsnews.com selling sponsored posts  on the site with bitcoins. The individual asked for .40 worth of bitcoins for the sponsored post but I was able to convince him to accept .02 bitcoins. See a copy of the first bitcoin scam email I received below.

bitcoin email scamsHere’s first problem I failed to spot. Take a look at the email address the bitcoin scam was sent from. It reads “[email protected] David Parker is the a real co-owner of the website CryptoCoinsNews.com and is listed on the site as so. David Parker is legit. However, what is not legit is this David Parker from this email address. Someone duplicated CryptoCoinsNews.com to CryptoCoinzNews.com. Can you spot the difference? The bitcoin scam website/email is CryptoCoinzNews.com with a ‘z’ and the legit bitcoin news site is CryptoCoinsNews.com with an ‘s’. But when the bitcoin scam email is sent, the correct website is listed in the body of the email with the fraudulent email address!

A few hours later after negotiating a lower rate for the sponsored post, I sent .20 bitcoins to the scam bitcoin address 1NzpPpSKJyFbpUruMkxF8FVm6huoUwhrLc. Little did I know this bitcoin address was the address that would disappear with my bitcoins to the ‘never recover’ land.

bitcoin sponsored posts scam

Forward to 9 days later. After countless emails to the fake David Parker asking for the status of the sponsored post that was supposed to be posted within 24 hours, I went to the bitcoin news site CryptoCoinsNews.com and contacted everyone listed on their contact page with a disappointing message. It was then that I was sent a post written weeks ago about the bitcoin scam artist falsely representing the real David Parker. I read the post and learned that I was not the only one to fall victim to that particular bitcoin scam.

The same type of scam seems to be running around Coindesk as well. Someone pretending to be Shakil Khan (Coindesk’s owner) is sending emails regarding fake advertising spots.

As a results, I decided to tell my story and create a list of bitcoin scams and scammers to help the bitcoin community identify and neutralize them! Please fell free to add to this list (on the comment page and we will move them to the list) any known bitcoin scam artist or bitcoin scams!
