The Coinsquare Bitcoin/Cryptocurrency Exchange Is a Scam!

Posted on 22 June 2018 by Andrei

What better way to start the day than telling you guys about how I’ve been scammed…

Right from the beginning, I want to make this perfectly clear: if you were thinking about doing business with the bitcoin/cryptocurrency exchange, don’t. Just don’t. To explain how I’ve been scammed by Coinsquare and why Coinsquare should be avoided, I’ll simply present facts in a chronological manner:

  1. In 2017, during the huge bull market, I’ve signed up for a Coinsquare account (wish I knew back then that Coinsquare are scammers!) due to the fact that in Canada (they’re a Canadian exchange btw), there was a bitcoin price premium… in other words, you could sell bitcoin for more than the market price, just like in South Korea and Japan. Therefore, this premium represented a trading opportunity
  2. I’ve submitted all of the necessary documents in 2017 and they replied, telling me that due to Canadian laws, they cannot verify my account but that I am welcome to deposit, withdraw and trade cryptocurrencies. In other words, they told me I could withdraw, deposit and trade crypto but not fiat (so for example, I wasn’t allowed to fund my account through a wire transfer)… fair enough, so I deposited some bitcoin and traded a bit
  3. Fast forward to Monday, I get an email which states that everyone needs to get verified and that until I’m verified, my bitcoin cannot be withdrawn
  4. I once again submit all of the necessary documents and they reply telling me that nope, they can’t verify me
  5. I said ok, I’ll just withdraw my bitcoin but, guess what, it says “Action restricted” whenever I try to do it

Essentially, Coinsquare scammed me by stealing my bitcoin.

They explicitly said I could deposit/withdraw/trade cryptocurrencies in 2017 but as of Monday, they were like “Yeah… we’re not going to allow this anymore and you can’t withdraw your bitcoin either. Ha!”… ladies and gentlemen, this is how Coinsquare scams you.

Let’s say Coinsquare scams 10,000 people out of a total of 5,000 bitcoins this way. They most likely assume most people won’t sue them and bam, they’ve just gotten away with stealing a fortune.

We can’t have that!

Believe me, Coinsquare will be exposed for the scam it is and there will be consequences. Waaaaaay too many people think you can just get away with anything in the frequently shady world of crypto but I promise that as of this point, I will make it one of my top goals to expose Coinsquare for the scammers they are.

This post will end up ranking on Google most likely and therefore, I hope I can help people stay away from Coinsquare.

If you’ve landed here by searching for keywords such as “coinsquare”, “coinsquare exchange” or something along those lines, please listen to this warning. Understand that Coinsquare are scammers and stay far, far away from them. There are plenty of legitimate exchanges to choose from, so just say no to Coinsquare. You’re welcome!

Contact me at if you’ve been scammed by Coinsquare as well and have information to share. Your anonymity will be respected and I’ll do my best to use the information you’ll be providing to make sure the Coinsquare scam exchange doesn’t get away with whatever it is they’ve done to you unpunished!

More Scams and Drama on DNForum

Posted on 08 March 2008 by Lord Brar

Scams and Drama on DNf

Two of the most recent scam-attempts at DNForum —

Scam #1 – Member claiming to be a woman who had a tough childhood and struggling to raise her kids, posted a thread about how she lost her two-year old. She asks members to support her during this tough time and buy her domains.

Emotions and condolences start to flow — so do red-flags. Discussions take emotional turn and all of sudden it turns out the member is a 51 Year Old man. You can read the more dramatic version of this incident here on Acro’s blog.

Lesson – Never Take Things at Face Value.

Scam #2 – More stolen domains for sale and again the involvement of member 9MM — who also had been also trying to act as he was playing the investigator by having a contact with the scammers when the scammers claimed him to be part of the play.

I can’t say that 9MM is guilty but his activities are VERY suspicious. How can someone buy all the high-profile names costing big-bucks when he claims to be a kid of parents who are so poor that he and they are not even able to afford a phone. Something just doesn’t add-up. Investigation is on.

You can read about this story here.

Why can’t these low-lives put in their creative brains to positive use rather than try to find ways to scam people and steal the things people have put in so much effort to earn in forst place?

Another NetSol Blooper!

Posted on 02 March 2008 by Lord Brar

bdjuf posted a thread on DNForum about how Network Solutions is giving him trouble with a Stolen Domain even though Robert had called them up to investigate the issue. Here’s his side of the story —

Hey everyone

so many months back I bought a for 10,000$, from a domain broker who now I know is a thief. The funny thing is, this thief was actually the whois email of a very good (a company), so I had no idea trusting the seller at the time.

I went through, sent the payment, and when it came time for transfer (at netsol), the domain was under a “temporary lock”.

I called netsol to see whats up with the domain, ask if it’s stolen, and the rep assured me that everything was fine with the domain, and the lock was there simply because of protection for the account. The rep then offered to merge the account in which the was and my account, and then she did.

So now I have the domain name in my netsol account.

Many weeks after I purchased the name, Netsol calls me up telling me that the domain I have is stolen, and the previous owner wants it back. I immediately tell them that as I would be more than happy to return this (25k+) as long as I get my 10,000$ back. (fair enough, right?) I also assured netsol that I won’t be transfering the domain out, and that I am there for their full cooperation if they needed my help for anything. I forwarded them all emails and did everything they asked.

So now, NetSol is calling me up telling me how I am partially to blame because I did not investigate this locked status (me calling and explicitly making sure everything is fine with the domain name wasn’t enough obviously). They also tell me to speak to Escrow to see how I can get my money back.

Turns out Escrow can’t get my money back without the bank owner’s (the hijacker’s) consent, which we all know we aren’t getting.

Now the situation is that Netsol called the FBI about the situation, and the FBI will contact escrow asking for the bank information of the hijacker.

I would never keep any of my precious names at a registrar like Network Solutions but rather transfer them to someone more secure like Moniker the moment I can.

But that’s not the point. The point is that how much is NetSol to be blamed when their representative said everything was okay.
