Igot.com is a popular bitcoin exchange but they cannot settle their debts and are ignoring payout requests.

The scam is operated by a man called Rick Day but it is a fake or changed name. He's a guy with Indian background, probably a scammer from the streets of India to now where he lives. He says he is from Australia.

His company is Beaumont Ventures Limited supposedly in Hong Kong.

I have joined a class action lawsuit against him.

DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO THIS COMPANY OR YOU WONT GET A CENT BACK!

They WERE based in Australia. Actually the laws aren't any more protective in Hong Kong, except that the language is different and they probably know it would be harder to find a lawyer, or deal with the authorities there.

They say they are based in Australia. Or that they started there. I guess they moved to Hong Kong where maybe scams are more tolerated.

I know of people who have gotten payments from them but I can also see now a lot of people are complaining

Bitcoin is unregulated so you can expect this kind of thing

If you contact the police they will tell you bitcoin isnt real money so you need to explain it was an investment purchase not a currency purchase

The police and authorities treat investment scams much more seriously

For months they didnt send any funds owed to me despite the request.

Then when I asked them wtf is going on they tell me I had to wait a few months for a new resolution process.

And thats after their help desk being disfunctional.

So next their help desk is fixed and I contact them again, with more delays, and only after sending them multiple emails they say I need to confirm if I want to receive payouts with a resolution process.

So they dont have money to pay me! And they are really dragging it out making excuses. Coming up to a year of waiting!!!

If its a corporation the civil matters are different.

If the company is insolvent then directors can be liable too.

If it were a single scammer in his basement then he could disappear and nobody could do anything.

Thats not true. there are consumer protection laws that could be serious trouble for him.

In a civil case, even if bankruptcy is declared the wages can be garnished which is when anything they earn is paid at least in part to affected people.
