The Crypto Genius, an autotrading leveraged CFD’s with guaranteed profits, is pretty cool at first sight. However, the service is run by a guy whose name I think is Chris but there isn’t really any information on that. There quite a few testimonials but after I found the first couple of actors on Fiverr I gave that up. The good news is it isn’t a binary options scam, they send you to a CFD broker, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t something fishy going on here.
What is the CryptoGenius.com?
The Crypto Genius is a cryptocurrency autotrader guaranteed to make you $5,900 per day. The service uses secrets known and used by the mega-rich, men like Mark Cuban who by the way does not endorse this product. It is a risk-free beta test but that’s really about all I can say, there is absolutely nothing on the website but marketing materials and the platform is as barren of information as any wasteland.
One reason why it may be good is that more than 250 people were on the site while I was there. That’s right, they let you know how many people are lining up to take one of the last 19,18,17,16 spots left. I will say that they do get quite a bit of traffic but I am sure that is because of SEO and affiliate sales funnels, not because the product is worth a dam.
According to SimilarWeb they got over 180,000 unique visitors in the first month of 2018, up to a stunning 471,989.00% from the previous month, so there are people looking at what they have to offer. Based on the stats I’d say that most people recognize it for the scam it is. The average visit is only a minute and the bounce rate is over 80%. Most traffic is coming from the UK and South Africa so you traders should be extra cautious.
They’ll tell you they’ve been featured in Forbes, the BBC, and CNN Money. One of the testimonials went so far as to say it was the Forbes article that sent her to the website in the first place. This is, of course, the paid Fiverr actor, someone you know you can trust. When I went on CNN, BBC and Forbes I could find no mention of the Cryptogenius but I did surprisingly find an article about financial scams…
Why The CryptoGenius Might Not Suck
This might not suck because letting someone else take your hard earned money and trade it as they like it the most awesome thing in the world. Psych.
Why The CryptoGenius Might Suck
This thing might suck because it is a marketing scam. They give no information about the product, how it works or who the people are behind it and they do give the hard sell asking you for money.
Is The CryptoGenius A Scam?
For goodness sake, do I have to spell it out for you? Y – E – S. For shizzle. Absolutely and without a doubt, this is a scam. Not only is the service an elaborate front they send you to a shady CFD broker, CryptoPoint. Cryptopoint is registered to a UK virtual office that is in turn linked to shell companies in assorted offshore banking havens. To make matters worse, and much more suspicious, when I was signing up with my fake name and phone number (the one for the Berlin police department) a logo for Banc de Binary popped up for just a sec. I barely saw it but what could this mean? Is this the people from now-defunct scam broker BdB or one of their erstwhile associates?
