In the video below, Uncle Scam explains how scammers are using fancy websites and promises of incredible returns to get people into fake cloud mining.
Here are ways Uncle Scam highlights, that can make this scam continue for years…
Set up an attractive website, try to look legit. Show pictures of people with a supposed role, Chief technical officer, Pool Operations, Computer Sciences, Social Media Management…, the more people your fake team has the more you look legit.
Offer a 500+ days ROI service with a contractual clause to stop the service once unprofitable.
During these 500+ days, you can pay back your customers (about 1/500 each day) without difficulty, because the payouts are just a part of what the customers paid for hardware, you don’t need to really mine. Of course, you need to find a way to stop or lower the payouts before reaching ROI.
Offer discounts to people recruiting new customers for you (3% seems enough).
