Are Kryptosminer & Kryptoxminer Fake or Real?
Why Are Kryptosminer & Kryptoxminer Fake?
Kryptosminer & Kryptoxminer are two websites that claim to represent investment companies. The websites are clones of each other, which is the first obvious sign that they are scams. Take a look at the home pages of the websites below; there’s no difference between the two.
Domain name lookups of the websites show that Kryptosminer was registered first on 23rd July 2020 and Kryptoxminer was registered later on 13th November 2020. Both the websites are operated anonymously as the registrant’s details such as name, location and contact details have been hidden for privacy.
Even though Kryptosminer & Kryptoxminer are just a few months old, the websites are trying to portray the companies as older. In the website footer, it is claimed that it has been operating since 2015, while in the About Us page, it is stated that the company is running since 2018. Both of these are false the neither of the websites existed before 2020.
There is also a ridiculous claim on both sites about the companies having won 100 awards. No award names have been given and no company can win a hundred awards in a few months of existence.
There are names of some team members mentioned on these websites. However, these are clearly fake as the same names and images can be found on at least 35 websites, all of which may be scams. The list is given at the end of the article.
Kryptosminer & Kryptoxminer do not seem to have a social media presence. The contact details provided are an address and email ID. Both of these are fake as the email ID does not work and the same address is also being used by other scam websites.
No reviews for Kryptosminer or Kryptoxminer could be found. However, I received an email from one of their victims who lost $7,500 to these criminals. The scammers are such lowlife scum that they even encouraged the victim to take out loans to fund the fake investments.
There is no doubt that Kryptosminer & Kryptoxminer are scams. Apart from the testimonial of one of their victims who lost $7,500 to the scam, there are several signs that point towards Kryptosminer & Kryptoxminer not being genuine.
The websites claim to be operating for many years, even though the domain names have only been registered in 2020. It is stated on the website that the companies have won 100 awards, which is ridiculous and impossible. The images and names of team members are fake as the same can be found on at least 35 websites, all of which may be scams.
It is advisable to avoid investing with Kryptosminer & Kryptoxminer, as they are not real investment companies.
