Is Ant-miners Fake or Real?
Why is Ant-miners Fake?
Ant-miners is a website that claims to generate profits for investors. Even though the name ‘Ant-miners’ makes it sounds like the website is involved in cryptocurrency cloud mining, the investment plans on the website state that profits are generated through Forex and CFD Trading. Such nonsense is common with online investment scam websites as scammers know nothing about crypto, Forex or CFD trading.
Ant-miners promises returns as tremendously high as 300% in 5 days, making it obvious that it is a fraudulent investment scheme. Such unbelievable returns are not realistic or sustainable.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it was registered on 19th February 2022. The registrant’s details such as name, location and contact details have been hidden using a privacy guard. Therefore, it is a new website that is being operated anonymously.
Even though it is clear that Ant-miners did not exist before February 2022, the website falsely claims that the site has been operating for more than 1,928 days ie. for 5+ years.
Further, Ant-miners falsely states it is a registered entity in the UK and licensed by FINRA. When I checked the certificate given on the website, I found that it is a UK Companies House certificate and not a FINRA certificate. The certificate itself is fake too as it clearly belongs to an unrelated company. Therefore, Ant-miners is blatantly lying about its company registration.
Ant-miners.org is poorly made and appears to be made using a cheap template, as with most fake investment websites created by African scammers. The home page contains the following text:
ant-miners.org makes the trader of more than 40 encrypted currencies in world brokers (poliniex and others) with strategies and a lot of responsibility, using high technology and advanced tools, monitored through a chart of a team of traders professional and experienced in this market, and thus have a very high profitability success.

I found that the above text as well as all the other content on the site has been copied. There are at least 127 other websites using the same text, all of which may be scams. The list of sites is given at the end of the article.
The About Us page contains the name of the company’s management team. I found that this same information is present on the other websites too and the people don’t exist in real life. Therefore, it is unknown who actually operates Ant-miners.org
Ant-miners does not have a social media presence. The contact information given on the website includes a fake USA address (copied from an unrelated company) and the email ID ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. The same address was found on the other scammy websites similar to Ant-miners too.
The phone number +1 (315) 262-8369 which makes it obvious that Ant-miners.org is operated by overseas scammers. This is because the number is a virtual line that can be operated from anywhere in the world. The number has the area code of New York even though Ant-miners is supposed to be based in Arizona.
I could not find any reviews of Ant-miners online on sites like ScamAdviser and Trustpilot. If you want to share your review of this platform, you can do so in the comments below or on my social media pages.
It seems evident that Ant-miners and the 127 similar websites are likely to be scams. There are a number of signs suggesting that they are not genuine trading and investment firms. The name ‘Ant-miners’ is derived from crypto mining, but the site claims that it creates profits from Forex and CFD trading.
Ant-miners is promising unrealistically high profits such as 300% in 5 days. Such unbelievable returns are generally not possible in real life and exist exclusively in the realm of online investment scams. All of the content on the website is copied and the same text can be found on at least 127 other websites, all of which may be scams.
The company has no social media presence and can only be contacted by email. The address provided is of an unrelated business and the same address was found on numerous other websites. The phone number is a virtual line that can be operated from anywhere in the world. No client reviews of Ant-miners could be found online.
It is advisable to avoid investing with Ant-miners or the 127 similar sites as there are no reasons to believe that they are genuine crypto cloud mining firms. As a general rule, never send crypto to strangers as it cannot be recovered.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
