So, I was just casually hanging out on Instagram, looking for borderline nudes with girls staring down the barrel of the lens when I got a DM!
Finally, my chance to get rich quick! And quick!
*also I didn’t black out any names, because what the heck. It’s all made up anyway, right? I’m a bit proud to admit that he’s actually blocked me after my last message. Anyway, let’s get right into this week’s instagram scam!
I love making small talk with these guys and keeping them busy. Initially I thought we’d have to actively search for the next instagram scam, grift, ot multilevel marketing bullshit. But hey! They came to us!
I also love that they really got the wrong account when they’re DMing us. Like, all it would’ve taken was not to get in touch with us and they’d be fine.
Can’t say we didn’t warn them… but I admire the confidence on these guys thinking their scam is so damn good, so waterproof, that they are beyond being fucked with.
So at this point I did a little digging. Two things came up.
A: They registered their domain with namecheap.com – which… look… if you’re trying to sell people on you being a legit trading platform, maybe spring for a better registrar. Or, I mean… one that doesn’t sound as cheap at least.
And B: They have a company address. Not what I expected, but I take what I can get. They are registered under 56 Burnley St, Richmond Vic 3121, bloody Australia, MATE!
Must be nice, let’s check it out:
Gonna be nice one day though…
But it’s not just the site that “Dave” “Francis” made up, Borextrade.com that is a scam registered in Melbourne. If you just type the address into google…
There’s a lot of sites registered in 56 burnley st, richmond vic 3121 – must be getting pretty crowded, in the garages alone… can you imagine all those poor ferraris squatting one next to the other like poor people on a train? I think I’m gonna be sick!
Here’s a neat trick to save money, if you’re a scammer operating on Instagram with multiple pages: Just use namecheap for all (or at least most) your domain registrations:
I mean, you get the point. But these websites look nice. And legit. Or at least legit enough. They all look the same though. So, I’m presuming it’s the same website using a different theme every single time:
Again, these don’t look bad, not at all. Not much different from a professional trading site and certainly a lot more professional than our Robin Hood blog here.
But, man! This dude is relentless. Somebody must’ve told him, that if he lures people into a conversation they’re more likely to fall for the scam. Kudos for still trying, Dave! If I can call you Dave. Can I?
The balls on this guy, smooth or otherwise.
And then he ghosted me. Alas. Or maybe he got reported, who knows?
But this is where this scam ends for us. For now. Partly, because “David” has – see above – blocked me. Or blockchained me, whatever.
I first thought somebody must’ve reported him, but really, his amazing page still exists.
David, please! What have I done to you? Can you forgive me? I’ll trade anything with you, anything! Just to look at your cars and screens one more time… oh, those rosy cheeks, so mischievous, so full of shite.
Anyway, it’s been fun! More scams please, get in touch! We are @howdoirobthis on socials and we are very gullible! *wink*

PS: We’re not the only ones in the know. So, PSA – if something looks to good to be true, or someone is offering an investment opportunity on Instagram of all places, be wary!
For SEO purposes, here’s a list of all crypto investment scam sites we could find:
This one doesn’t even have a dedicated e-mail for convenience’s sake
and again, the same site, but what’s with the domain? What’s a stocksto?
We’re sure there are more, just google the address.
