Swisscoin Email Spam [coinexchange.io]

We have received a lot of spam reports for coinexchange.io they appear to come from a wide range of fake or spoofed e-mail addresses, we have had over 15 of the same e-mail ourselves ! – The message reads :

Every once in a while, an opportunity comes around. What divides winners from losers is those who seize it and those who don’t. By now, you must have heard about all the people who made a killing with bitcoin over the last year. Some of them made more than ten million with just an initial purchase of a thousand bucks. What I want to ask you though is: Did you know that there are hundreds of other digital currencies that have had even bigger gains over the last twelve months? This includes Ripple, Ethereum and Raiblocks you may have heard about some of them. What is the next big one for 2018? The answer in my opinion is simple. It’s Swisscoin [SIC]. The reason for that is very straight forward. It’s because it is supported by the Switzerland government. It is already considered as legal in the country and it is entirely shielded from any political instability. It’s the type of coin that you can buy a thousand bucks of, and sit on for a few months or even years and that few thousand will likely be worth a few million. SIC has already doubled in value since Saturday and it will double or triple again by this Friday. So, what are you waiting for? For the time being it can only be purchased on /coinexchange [dot] io/ (that’s the website address of the exchange). You can set up an account in about thirty seconds, then you send bitcoins to it and you can easily buy swiss coin. If you don’t have any bitcoin already you can just google how to get some, it’s super simple and will just take you 10 minutes at most, then transfer them to coinexchange’s website and get the SIC.

Community chatter at bitcointalk.org shows the fact that people don’t really know where to put this operation yet. Some are quick to call it a scam, while others gripe about the high withdrawal fees and still others voice their contentment with coinexchange.io. From the above analysis, it is clear that not everything is as it should be with this crypto currency exchange.

According to the comments here and here it appears to be a some form of scam – although we can not verfity this, make up your own mind.
