Can we discuss the dodgy Bitcoin related investment sites (Airbit Club / bitbackoffice.com)?
I'm literate regarding bitcoins and cryptocurrency in general, but I was wondering if anyone has experience with the more nefarious / dodgy investment sites out there? Specifically bitconnect (which erupted a while back) and Airbit club / bitbackoffice.com. An acquaintance of my partner has recently gotten heavily involved with Airbit Club, having over 10 accounts possibly all at the $1000 dollar investor level. This person believes they are now rich as a result of their investments, and that they could retire or are close to being able to retire. Their plan is to keep going and get over 20 accounts invested with the "club". Everything I have read about this has been very clear - its a ponzi scheme / pyramid scheme hybrid. The site barely even tries to hide this fact, as it openly states half of your initial investment funds are literally given to other people. This person in question is not literate about bitcoins or cryptocurrency in the slightest, and is basically very vulnerable and being taken advantage of, and I am worried they are tying up funds into the scheme which they won't be able to get back. Airbit club in particular seems to be huge in the Phillipines, and possibly countries like Russia and Colombia, where there is little to no regulation for things like this. Does anyone have any experience with these sites? Are you able to withdraw your supposed bitcoins at will? Or are you forced to sell them through the club (people have said this and that they get frauded in the process only receiving a fraction of the real value for a sale). Others say I feel like telling this person its a complete scam, but I don't know enough about the site to be able to say so with complete confidence.

AirBit Club is some kind of multi level marketing scam, but I'm having trouble convincing this guy he lost a few thousand on it. He tried sending "bitcoin" out of his airbit club account and it never arrived.

I don't find information online for this business... it's almost like Bitcoin, anonymous. The thing is they are the only one doing seminars and speeches about Bitcoin in my city (Guayaquil) and because of them i find out the big world of cryptos. What i want to know is if there is anyone here who had experience or is actually doing that business that can give me an honest non-phishing (is it a scam?) review.

Meu sogro está entrando em um golpe de "Ponzi". Peço dicas.
Basicamente, meu sogro, que é aposentado, está investindo em um clube de bitcoin chamado "Airbit Club". Depois de uma pesquisa e entender como funciona, tem toda a cara de Ponzi scheme. Resumindo: http://www.forexpro.pt/airbit-club-fraude-hyip-scam Eu entendo Bitcoin mas não o suficiente talvez, basicamente eu já comprei bitcoin pra comprar jogos no steam, mas não sei explicar pra um leigo como o meu sogro o porque desse esquema vai dar merda no final. Alguém tem experiência com esse tipo de golpe? Talvez mais materias que eu posso ler sobre eles? EDIT: Eu mandei o link acima pro sogro e ele entrou em contato com o amigo que indicou ele, aí o amigo encaminhou prum cara que parecer ser um líder do culto e ele mandou esse audio no Whatsapp pra "acalmar". Basicamente falando que são a maior mineradora do mundo, que tem investimento até do Carlos Slim. Fiquei impressionado com tamanha cara de pau.
I've been using this for Starbucks for a while, works great. In order to use the Target integration am I forced to use the Airbitz wallet? Kind of looks that way... One of the things that I like about using it for Starbucks is that it works simply in a browser. Would be disappointing if I'm going to be forced to use a specific wallet to use the service, a future where you have to have 72 different wallets in order to take full advantage of retail bitcoin doesn't sound great to me...
