About the Fraudsters OPTMINERS.COM
In 2020 the BC Securities Commission made us aware that OPTMINERS.COM was illegally using our registered company name to lend an aura of authenticity to their operation. They are in no way associated with OPT Holdings Ltd. and are using our name without permission. Their entire operation is set up to defraud crypto currency investors. All the pictures of people on their website are fake, nothing but stock or stolen images.
The BC Securities Commission has issued to following warning: https://www.bcsc.bc.ca/enforcement/early-intervention/investment-caution-list/2020/optminerscom
We understand that they are also under investigation in Spain, and we have had calls from defrauded investors in other countries, including Colombia and Dominican Republic.
Despite takedown notices to Google and complaints to their “customer service” email, registrar, and hosting service, their website continues to be up. We recently found out that they also have a YouTube video that makes the same fraudulent claim about being a subsidiary of our company. Here is an extract from our takedown complaint to YouTube:
