Aurora Mine – Looked pretty but it was a scam as predicted
So the latest “Mining” site doing the rounds is Aurora Mine. It was only set up in September and has some things that are slightly concerning.
- No contact address on the site
- UK Limited Company – Not even interesting – actually these companies can be set up for about £12.00 So that gives no validity at all

Ok so set up in September. Giving 100GH free is very tempting – but there are some things that make me suspicious.
Considering there are a LOT of limited companies set up at that address, I can pretty much guarantee that this is a Limited company that has been bought off the shelf.
So what about the founders?
Well, a quick image search links one of them to this company:- http://servertest.me/micsite/ – there she is the second one from the right.
I’m sceptical of this site but it does offer daily payouts. – So I’ll see if anything arrives in my BTC account.
However, it is a VERY young site which makes bold claims for something that I actually don’t think is real.
So it will pay out for a time then suddenly disappear.
I expect they are using an off the shelf mining scam site script and have just set it up overnight.
I’ll be monitoring this site for the next month or so, we’ll see how it goes but I’m not really happy putting any BTC into it.
It’s offline already! Well, that didn’t last long. Once you hear reports of people not getting paid you know it’s nearly time for it to go. Steer clear of it.
This is what I’m recommending at the moment> Click Here
