Remembering that the mighty Gensis Mining went offline and popped back up.
I can’t actually say I’ve been scammed because I had back more than my original investment and more.
So this morning I tried to get into Splititmining and as they warned on Friday the site is down (actually I did not expect it to be down completely, if I move a site to new servers I will have the old servers running and the new ones and put a message on the old servers to make sure that no one gets a downed site!).
The DNS yesterday was showing the following, this is unusual for any BTC or some legal sites, most of them hide their details.

If they are a scam what is odd is that I was paid yesterday without a problem (also that they publish things like their phone number and address) – very quickly actually, support has been fantastic, also very quick which is HIGHLY UNUSUAL for a scam site. Most of the time they want a quick buck and get out.
So I have just emailed MARCO from Splitit I’m looking to see if –
a. it bounces back
b. I get a response
I don’t panic when this stuff happens, I know the risks and as I say to everyone visiting this site again and again, (see warning) not to invest more than they can afford to lose. Nothing is safe, even big banks go bust.
So I’m hoping this is just a glitch and they are doing upgrades to their software and servers this weekend as their email said on Friday.
Either they are going to make a miraculous rise from the dead or they have just gone bust…. 🙁
