Crypto Recovery Agencies
Are Avastsecurity, Bluemoongate & Knoxshield Fake or Real?
Why Are Avastsecurity, Bluemoongate & Knoxshield Fake?
Avastsecurity, Bluemoongate & Knoxshield are three identical websites that claim to offer crypto recovery services for victims of scams. As I have written previously, cryptocurrency is nearly impossible to recover, which makes promises by new and unknown companies highly suspicious.
The most obvious sign of a scam is that all these three websites are completely the same except for their domain names and logos. This hints that all of them are operated by the same scammers.
It should be noted that Avastsecurity has no relation to Avast which is a legitimate cybersecurity organization.
Going further, domain name lookups of the websites show that they have all been registered just a few days apart. Bluemoongate was registered on 27th July 2021 followed by Avastsecurity and Knoxshield which were both registered on 11th August 2021.
The registrant’s details such as name, location and contact details have been hidden using a paid service. Therefore, these are new websites being operated anonymously.
Not only are the three sites clones of each other, but the content is not even original. I found that the text has been copied directly from the website of what appears to be a legitimate investigative agency.
The websites don’t even have any contact information. They only have a Disqus comment section and a contact form that probably doesn’t even work.
Avastsecurity, Bluemoongate & Knoxshield do not mention any social media profile on the websites. However, I found that these sites are being promoted using fake accounts created on Quora and Reddit.
The accounts are clearly fake as they are new and/or post about nothing else but these fake recovery companies. Examples of posts and comments spamming about Bluemoongate are given below:
There are no reviews available for Avastsecurity, Bluemoongate & Knoxshield, which is not surprising considering that these websites are almost brand new. If you want to share your review of these websites, you can do so in the comments section below or on my social media pages.
It seems quite obvious that Avastsecurity, Bluemoongate & Knoxshield are fake recovery agencies. The sites are clones of each other and have been created anonymously just a few days apart.
The websites are of terrible quality as they contain no real company information. The little text that is present has been copied from the websites of legitimate organizations. There aren’t even any contact details given on the websites.
These companies have no social media presence. However, I found that their (scam) services are being promoted using fake accounts created on Quora and Reddit.
It is advisable to avoid hiring the services of Avastsecurity, Bluemoongate & Knoxshield as there are no reasons to believe that they are genuine organizations.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
If you have been a victim of an investment scam, you can take the following steps:
- File a complaint with the payment portal. However, investment scammers mostly use methods such as Bitcoin, Western Union, MoneyGram and other untraceable methods which make refunds impossible.
- File a formal police complaint with the Cybercrime department.
- Leave a negative review on review portals such as Scamadviser and TrustPilot
- Report the website to Google using the Suspicious Site Reporter extension for Chrome
- Give a low rating to the website on Web of Trust. You can also install their extension for the same.
- If the company has a listing on Google My Business or Google Maps, file a complaint using the Business Redressal Complaint Form. Also, leave a negative review explaining what kind of experience you had.
