CryptoDouble, a newly launched company that promised to double cryptocurrency investments within 100 hours of deposit, recently disappeared with customers’ 1,000 BTC – leaving behind nothing but an offline website.

Few users actually reported their investments to have grown after partnering with CryptoDouble. But indeed, they could be paid trollers adding limelight to the company’s reliability. Even if they were real, they forgot to notice out very basic things about CryptoDouble that their funds were neither insured nor refundable. The developers were also anonymous. Wonder who, in their right mind, actually invested in a scam like this?

Meanwhile, it is reported that the Bitcoin wallet address of the owner(s) currently has 974 BTC in it. At the time of writing, the funds have been sent to BTC-e, probably to take out the cash.
