Be warned, this is a long one.
I have tried to buy a Goldshell KD2 from bitcoinminingtechs.com. Keep in mind arigminingtech.com and a few others are their sister sites or clones. They all have a very similar website, only difference I found is the location of state they’re in, phone number, and the chat platform used.
Though they are responsive, this is my feedback.
They gave me a safer way of payment via CC or crypto via escrow service. I chose with credit card.
Though service was great, receiving the miner is another matter. After confirmation of payment and 3 days, I reached out on a ship date, they assured me it would be shipped in a few days, It didn’t. A few days later (this is about a week after payment), they assured me it was delayed and would be shipped next day.
It never shipped and they returned my money by crediting it back to my cc. Reason - they been scammed with fraudulent cc’s and want me to make payment where I should share my One Time Password I receive from text from my bank. Odd?
I attempted to buy, they requested I give them the OTP (it’s the password the banks tell you to never share) to the merchant within 5 minutes. That’s because the OTP expires in 10 min. I responded in 7 minutes. Next thing you know I get a call from fraud services, if I attempted to add this card to Apple Pay on a new iPhone. I, of course said no.
The bank went ahead and canceled my cc and is sending me out a new one.
The support staff via chat says they are not cons, or we were we would of never returned your money. They are trying to get answers from their Finance Dept, but not surprisingly I have not heard anything back yet.
My love to gain access to the KD2 is very apparent. Yet I’m still willing to work with them if payment is made through a safe method.
Am I crazy?
