I “purchased” what I thought was a good price for an Ibelink BM-K1 for $2250 from ibelinkminer.com. I purchased it after seeing it trending as number one for the past few days on asicminervalue.com. I emailed a few stores asking for their best price, and I got a response from firstname.lastname@example.org saying I will get it within 8 days if I order now, but hurry because they are running out of their first batch. I went through the ibelinkminer.com checkout process and sent the bitcoin, and I forwarded my Coinbase receipt to their email for the transaction. I got a reply saying that I need to purchase 2 more miners otherwise they won’t ship because it didn’t hit the minimum order requirements. On their site and during the checkout process not once was this mentioned. I replied back I will post bad reviews, and I got a response quickly that they will make an exception and ship this order. Well, still nothing after 9 days and I heard back from sales from a different site (minerexpert) and they said that the ibelinkminer.com is a scam, according to the real http://en.ibelink.com.hk/ official staff. Minerexpert also told me I can purchase the BM-K1 from them for about $200 less than on the official site because they will have a lower cost and it will avoid tariffs.
Well, guess I learned my lesson.
UPDATE: I contacted the real ibelink.com.hk sales and they responded with this article:
I told them to make a banner across their home page so people see it because I never did.
