Hello guys,

As a person who got affected by this COVID virus I really bought into this.

So in order for you to withdraw your "winnings", they want you to make a deposit of 0.03 BTC first. And I did:

As you can see I sent a little bit more to match the transaction fee, but they fined me additionally about the deposit and added to my balance only 0.0297 BTC

And refused to execute my withdrawal.

So I sent another 0.0005
1604311886522.png

But they did not add the amount to my balance. My balance remain at 0.5397 BTC ( the "winnings" of 0.51 BTC + my 1st deposit of 0.03 BTC or as they claim 0.0297 BTC.

I contacted the support multiple times and they insist of me to deposit additional 0.03, because amounts less than that will not be added to my balance. They even refuse to send me back my deposits without the so called "winnings".
This is the message they copy-paste me every time:

So they already have more than 0.03 BTC in their wallet from my side, but want additional 0.03 BTC on top of that, so I can have my withdrawal.
I really got fooled by this one, because I was positive with COVID and I was in a hospital with mild condition.

BE AWARE OF SUCH SCAMS.

They is not free lunch.

Whois shows Geetbit.com was first registered on September 24, 2020.

Their About page (geetbit.com/about) claims they've been around since 2013 and acquired GHash.io. I believe this is a lie. If you visit GHash.io, there is no mention of GeetBit. Instead, there is a reference to CEX.io.

Although this won't get your money back, I recommend that you contact CEX,io and provide them with all the evidence you have. Make sure to ask them to take a look at geetbit.com/about (and make sure to grab a screenshot before Geetbit has a chance to alter the information there).

You also should report the whole incident to eConsumer.gov They don't take direct action, but make the information available to regulators and law enforcement agencies around the world.
