What is maxoffernow.com?
One of the many scammer servers in use at the moment is maxoffernow.com. They are not a single scam, but a collection of different scams that operate in different countries all kept on one server. This is a very convenient way for a selected group of scammers and their international affiliates to scam millions of people around the world without having to have lots of different servers and websites all across the world as they operate different scams in different territories.
Let's have a look at a few different scams that they proliferate:
British Bitcoin Profit
This scam is obviously targeting Britain which is one of their favourite territories to target. The scam is the typical auto-trading crypto robot scam that supposedly makes you money whilst you sleep. Here is an example of their website:
As you can see below they host a version at maxoffernow.com:
Same old story, came old confidence trick. You cannot lose, earn from nothing with no experience and no risk. The only issue arises if you check the small print at the bottom of the page:
Important Risk Note: Trading can generate notable benefits; however, it also involves a risk of partial/full funds loss, and should be considered by initial investors. Around 70 percent of the investors will lose money. Carefully read the terms & conditions and disclaimer page of the third party investor platform before investing. Customers must be cognizant of their individual capital gain tax liability in their country of residence. It is against the law to solicit United States persons to buy and sell commodity options, even if they are called ‘prediction' contracts unless they are listed for trading and traded on a CFTC-registered exchange or unless legally exempt.
Now this is a very typical trick. It looks as if they are warning you to be careful, but actually this is just another collection of lies. There is no trading with these people, there is no trading platform or trading software. There is not even a seventy percent chance you will lose all of your money. This is because they use the danger of CFD (contracts for differences) trading to cover their tracks. They want you to think that you lost your money in a fair trade, when in actuality they never sent your money to a trading broker at all. They simply stole it. The dangerous nature of CFDs is simply to through the authorities and insistent individuals off of the scent. These people are not brokers, they are criminals. They steal your money and transfer into untraceable cryptocurrency as soon as you make a 'deposit' and then it is gone forever. Then they hope that you will sign up with a n unregulated offshore 'recovery' company so that they can take a piece of your compensation from the bank too! Brutal isn't it?
Now lets have another look at the same server, except here it is hosting another site under the same domain:
